No President Can Do Magic, If There Is Tension In The Land – Goodluck Johnathan

Nigerian ex President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday Monday, has said that the unity of Nigeria is paramount despite the demonstrations by those who feel marginalised.

The African Peace Ambassador, also called on Nigerians to pray and work toward the nation’s unity, as Muslims celebrate Eid-el-Fitr. He said this yesterday while playing host to a delegation of former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ministers Forum in Abuja.

Dr. Jonathan who is the immediate past president of Nigeria said that no nation’s economy could grow where there is no peace. According to him, “We should always use this period to pray for the  unity of the country which is paramount.”

He said, no president can do magic, if there is tension in the land. In his words, “Immediately there is sense of insecurity in any country, investors will go back and when investors go back, of course, the economy will dwindle. What improves the economy is confidence and what makes investors to have confidence is peace. Nobody wants to invest where there is no peace, except those that invest in arms and ammunition. We should all pray and work toward that peace, that is the only way we can grow our economy. “

The Ex President, however, congratulated all Muslim brothers and sisters in the country for a successful completion of Ramadan fast and the Sallah celebration.
