VIDEO: “President Jonathan Has Brought Light To Nigeria” - Reuben Abati


In an exclusive interview with SaharaTV on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Goodluck Jonathan Dr. Reuben Abati opened up about the future of Nigeria under the Jonathan administration and detailed some of the government's plans to commemorate Nigeria's centenary.
Abati reflected on Nigeria at 100, and why the event should be marked by merrymaking rather than melancholy. 
“The beauty of this country, according to President Jonathan, lies in our diversity,” Abati told SaharaTV’s Rudolf Okonkwo. “He says that 100 years later the coming together of Nigeria provides us an opportunity to celebrate.” Abati encouraged Nigerians to be patriotic and to embrace sentiments of a united Nigeria.
“Nigeria has survived beyond being a mere geographical expression,” he stated.
“President Jonathan has brought light,” he said. Abati assured viewers that “President Jonathan too is concerned about corruption”. He added that President Jonathan has increased transparency and accountability in his government, citing the exorcism of payroll “ghosts” and President Jonathan’s commitment to fair elections.
