Jonathan ‘ll transform lives of rural populace – Defence Minister

By Dayo Johnson
AKURE—MINISTER of Defence, Prince Adetokunbo Kayode, SAN, weekend, described the President Goodluck Jonathan/Sambo agenda as one that would positively transform the lives of the rural populace of Nigeria which constitute the heart and soul of the nation.

Kayode spoke at the flag- off of the 61 outdoor billboards he erected across states in the South-West geopolitical zone.
Unveiling the one he erected at his country home in Ikaram Akoko, Akoko North West Local Government area of Ondo State, the minister flanked by chieftains of the PDP in the state, said President Goodluck Jonathan remained committed and dedicated to the cause of the rural populace.

According to him the rural populace “represents over 70 per cent of the nation’s population giving the background from which he comes from.”

Kayode noted that “due to the fact that Jonathan was brought up in a rural setting where people struggle to get things done including educating their children, he would ensure that policies that would make lives easier for the people are put in place.

According to him “He who knows it feels it succinctly sums up the Goodluck Jonathan story, and that is why he wants to rule this our country again and ensure that our children and their children’s children would not go through and endure just to get an education and improve the quality of the live of his family and community”.

The Minister pointed out that the duo of Jonathan and Sambo “are good for the position of president and vice president because they have gone through necessary training and learning process.

The Goodluck story would be told in every nooks and cranny of all communities in the South-West from Ikaram to Owena to Gbongan to Atijere to Ode Aye to OdeOmu to Ipetumodu to Ibafo and to all the furthermost communities in this zone. When we cannot reach them by television, we will utilize the reliable radio;, when the airwaves do not cover their communities, our outdoor billboards and posters must surely get to them.”
