Former Nigerian President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for prioritizing economic self-reliance in Nigeria. Jonathan commended Buhari for directing the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) to train 100 youths from Bayelsa State. During the NASENI Skill Acquisition Training and Youth Empowerment Programme, Jonathan emphasized the importance of science and technology to the development of economies worldwide.
The training program, which focused on modern methods of electrical installation and maintenance, was held in Jonathan's hometown, Otuoke. Jonathan urged the beneficiaries of the program to use the starter packs and equipment given to them for their businesses and to pursue economic self-reliance. He also advised them not to sell the starter packs, which are worth millions of naira, but to use them to modernize their businesses.
The news of Jonathan's praise for Buhari's economic policies has generated reactions from Nigerians on social media platforms. Many have expressed surprise at the former president's positive comment about Buhari, given their past political rivalry.
However, others have commended Jonathan for focusing on the need to develop science and technology in Nigeria, which is crucial to the country's economic growth and development.
