President Goodluck Jonathan, during a Presidential Media Chat on Sunday evening, said that it is too early for Nigerians to be asking if he will contest the 2015 Presidential elections.
"It is too early to talk about contesting in 2015 or not. Four years is a very short time to make an impact. Give me sometime to make sure that myself and my cabinet work. I don't want to distract myself and my government. Wait until 2014 before asking that question," he replied to a question.
Jonathan also said he is not worried about the performance of the ruling party as "the PDP family is strong and waxing stronger" ..."We will put our house in order."
Jonathan also promised to fix the bad Benin-Ore road and promised that his administration has not abandoned the numerous reports of various committees set up to investigate problems in various sectors, even as he disclosed that his administration has set up yet another committee to investigate why no Nigerian university was among the top 100 rated universities in the world.
Still positive about the capacity of his administration to deliver on electoral promises, he reiterated that, "Before leaving office, we will leave something behind that Nigerians will remember us for."
The President also promised that Nigerians will see a marked improvement in power supply by the middle of 2013.
On the raging controversy over the oil wells between his home state, Bayelsa and neighbouring Rivers state, President Jonathan declared that "I will not influence anything to favour Bayelsa State in the allocation of any oil well."
Media practitioners at the chat were Mr. Ikeddy Isiguzo (The Vanguard), Mr. Muhhamed Kudu Abubakar (Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Mrs. Themi Olujobi, (The Mirror) and Mr. Martins Oloja of (The Guardian).
