President Jonathan promises improved quality of lives in 2013
- Written by Abdullateef Abubakar Jos
``Our objective for the year is to ensure by all possible means that more of the programmes and projects envisioned by this administration and which are already being embarked upon are further brought on stream within the next 12 months to meet the yearnings of our people, and raise the quality of life,’’ he said.
He said the Administration would give priority to flood and erosion control; the rehabilitation and expansion of existing federal roads; improved power supply; and continued rehabilitation, upgrading and reactivation of the national rail network. Jonathan added that employment generation and wealth creation would also remain primary objective of the administration’s socio-economic agenda for 2013.
``Creating more employment opportunities for our youth and graduates of our universities is an imperative that will continue to underpin our drive for massive economic growth, the rapid expansion of our manufacturing and industrial base, and the productive diversification of our national economy. ``In this regard, we will continue to provide the necessary enabling environment for the private sector to thrive,’’ he said.
The President said the security agencies would be further strengthened and encouraged to collaborate with the international community to stem the scourge of terrorism and enhance the security of lives and property.
