I Was Elected President to Spread Wealth, Not Poverty' - Jonathan


New member
Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday said that he was never elected as Nigeria’s president to spread poverty but to generate and spread wealth.

Jonathan who spoke at the Oxford Union, with the theme ‘Fostering Youth Entrepreneurship', said that only being entrepreneurial can completely cure poverty and not having a job or working for someone.

“I once said that I was not elected President of Nigeria to spread poverty; I was elected to generate and spread wealth. My belief in this regard is that getting a job or being a worker cannot completely cure the disease of poverty. It is only your own business that can provide such security and give you the financial freedom you need to prosper.â€￾

Jonathan, whose speech was streamed live, rhetorically queried his audience asking why some nations are rich and others remain poor.
