AC charges Jonathan to make impact on Nigerians

LAGOS—The Action Congress, AC, has challenged President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately get down to work, saying he can help put Nigeria on the path to greatness despite the short time he has to preside over the affairs of the country.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the President must avoid the distractions being engineered within his own party, over whether or not he will run in 2011, and squarely face the challenges of restoring hope to long-suffering Nigerians.

Saying what matters is not how long but how well, AC reminded President Jonathan that US President Barack Obama, in making his health care reform a reality, has already written his name into the history books, just a little over a year into his four-year administration.

It also said Alexander the Great built one of the largest empires in ancient history and made impacts that lasted centuries despite having a short reign, while Nigeria’s former Head of State Abdusalami Abubakar was able to transfer power from the military to civilians in less than a year.
