Description

Immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan has said that his administration did not plug all loopholes in its bid to end corruption in the country.

The former President, however, said it was wrong to assume that the economy would have been in a worse shape if he was not kicked out of power in 2015.

Jonathan spoke at the Eagles Square, Abuja on Saturday during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, non- elective national convention.

He was flanked by his former deputy, Namadi Sambo, some serving and former governors, and chieftains of the party.

Jonathan also pointed at the 2012 flood in the country as a major set back to his government.

According to him, “Though we didn’t completely plug the loopholes in the fight against corruption, but we did well.

“I learnt that some people said that if the PDP had remained in power beyond 2015, the economy would have been worse. This couldn’t have been the case, because we had a sound economic team in place.

“Let us not forget that the great floods of 2012 were a major calamity that damaged homes and farmlands on the plains of River Niger and Benue.

“But despite the devastating effects of this natural disaster, there were no food shortages or arbitrary increase in prices, because of what we were able to accomplish with our agriculture transformation agenda, which considerably boosted food production.

“If we say that we rekindled hope in our people and regained international goodwill, it is because we pursued a number of policies and programmes that were not only richly rewarding for our people, but were also being copied by many countries across the globe, a few of which I will mention here.”
