President Goodluck Jonathan was in Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 in continuation of his Presidential campaign rally.
At the rally, President Jonathan said regardless of the obstacles facing the country, he has performed considerably above par as against the tenure of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, who he said did not come close to his achievements during his time as military Head of State.
He said: “We have done reasonably well despite the challenges before us. All of you saw the train that just passed through this place now. We promised to resuscitate railway and we did it. All of you saw the train; we can even end the campaign with that.
“Those who have the opportunity to do it but did not do anything about it and they want to come back now. Don’t allow them. Mass transit cannot work by using small buses, you need train which will be cheaper.”
President Jonathan also said that his government was working on a railway line that would link Lagos State with the Eastern part of the country.
He also said his administration was working on the Ilesa and Ife dams, as well as winning Osun State for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the state was the only state in the South West which was not won in the 2011 election.
On the issue of insecurity, President Jonathan said: “We will win the war against terror very soon; terror cannot continue forever. In the next administration terror attacks will be minimal.”
