Former president, Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians to use 2019 as a new opportunity to elect better leaders.
Jonathan said this in his new year message posted on his official Facebook page.
He further urged Nigerians to hope for a better Nigeria and embrace unity in the new year.
The message read: “I do not intend to give a long message this New Year. All I just want to say is that there is hope and a future for Nigeria. We do not just have a New Year, we have a New Opportunity.
“A New Opportunity to be better leaders and better followers. To be better citizens who join hands with our fellow Nigerians, irrespective of region and religion, to bring Nigeria ever closer to the dreams of our Founding Fathers.
“2019 brings with it its own challenges, but if one sentence should summarise our collective national attitude to those challenges, that sentence is this-Nigeria will survive and thrive, by God’s grace and our collective fidelity to the Nigerian Dream.
“On behalf of my family and the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, I wish you and your family a Happy New Year. 2019 is the year of better things for Nigeria. GEJ.”
