Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his contribution to national development.
A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, said any objective assessment of Jonathan would reveal what his administration had achieved in the last 14 months.
The party said efforts by some politicians to “tar the PDP with non-performance brush” was beclouding their vision to the commendable efforts of government.
The statement was a reaction to the accusations of non-performance levelled against the President by different people and groups.
But the PDP said Jonathan would continue to lead the country well.
The statement read in part, “We have no doubt whatsoever the President is on course and will continue to deliver on the PDP promises to the people of Nigeria.
“Quite a lot has been achieved in the various sectors and there is no gain saying the government needs the continued support and prayers of Nigerians to do more.”
The statement said though it was the right of every Nigerian, especially the opposition, to assess and interpret government efforts to suit their biases.
The statement added, “Let’s remain partisan; let’s remain politically plural for that is the true essence of democracy but let the greater interest of the nation remain prime in all our engagements.”
