ABUJAâ€” FORMER governor of Edo State, Senator Oserheimen Osunbor has described the swearing-in of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as substantive President of Nigeria as an act that will take Nigeria to the promised land.
Speaking with Vanguard yesterday, the two-time senator said: â€œI am confident that the newly sworn-in President will definitely lead Nigerians to the promised land considering his precedence in the act of governance in Nigeria.
â€œWe are all aware that when fate lifted him from being Deputy Governor to Governor of Bayelsa State, he performed excellently well to the admiration of the people of that State and now that fate has once again played its hand on him by making him the President of Nigeria, I have no doubt in my mind that similar to theÂ Bayelsa experience, he will also do marvelously well as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.â€
Osunbor said â€œthe reason for this confidence include the fact that he has the requisite educational qualification, a rich wealth of experience in governance including the period he acted as Acting President, the moral character, honesty, respect for the rule of law and mostÂ importantÂ of all a sincere desire to see Nigeria achieving greatness and speedy development and full greatness.â€
