A governorship aspirant in Rivers State, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, has said President Goodluck Jonathan deserves a second term in office.

Lulu-Briggs, who leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, maintained that President Jonathan initiated and promoted policies that supported the growth of the private sector.

The governorship aspirant spoke on Saturday during a rally in Port Harcourt organised by the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria.

He said, “In all modesty, President Jonathan has inspired growth in the private sector, which has given business the impetus to grow, thereby, creating jobs for our young graduates and professionals.

“Despite our security challenges, President Jonathan has steadfastly piloted Nigeria’s economy into becoming the fastest growing economy in Africa.

“Is there anybody out there who would dispute the fact that Nigeria’s economy is, as we speak, the largest in Africa? Our economy was not as buoyant as it is now when Jonathan took over as president. President Jonathan has created millions of jobs by supporting the private sector to grow through well thought-out policies.

“Our farmers have never had it so good. Today, most our farmers get the fertilizers that they need to grow their crops. In the past, government officials and third parties divert them for illicit financial gains.

“Unlike in the past when farming was seen as a preoccupation for those in the villages, young men and women have taken to farming because of the favourable agricultural policies of President Jonathan, who has made agriculture very attractive.”
