I Am Not Desperate To Continue In Office, Says President Jonathan

goodluck-jonathanPresident Goodluck Jonathan has said that he is not desperate to be re-elected in the March 28 election to continue as President.
According to the President, politicians who are interested in occupying any elective position either at state or federal level should not to be desperate.
President Jonathan who spoke at the public launching of a book, “The People’s Choice: The story of President Goodluck Jonathan written” by Rev. Fr. Charles Imokhai today in Lagos said: “my second message is to all of us, especially those of us who are politicians, that for all of us who want to serve, we should ‎be ready to serve but we should not be desperate to serve our people.
“Sometimes, people ask me that Mr. President, from what we read and what we see, we see you still smiling and unruffled.
“Yes, nothing will really ruffle me because I am willing and ready to serve but I am not desperate to serve. That is what keeps me going.
“All of us who want to hold offices from the least, a counselor of a ward or a chairman of a council, a member of the state House of Assembly or member of House of Representatives, Senate, Governor or the President, if all of us are always ready and willing to serve our people but we are not desperate in that our mission, then of course Nigeria will be a better place for all of us.”
The President said that while the book being presented provided an account that is close to being accurate, most of the things written about him were inaccurate.
He however promised that he would write the most accurate one after leaving office.
“My dream is that one day, a product of Almajiri school will stand here as a President of this country.”
