Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, has given a pass mark to the performance of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2013.Obi said the present national administration deserves commendation, as it has made positive impact on the lives of the people since inception.He therefore, called on all Nigerians to give the president total support in 2014 to enable him improve on his transformation agenda.Obi, who stated this while fielding questions from journalists in Awka on New Year day, also listed areas in which Jonathan has done tremendously well.His words: “The President has done very well. He is trying to introduce a new order and the so much bickering as we hear are mostly from those resisting the new order; most of them being those that benefited from the old order.“Look at the power sector; the President has succeeded in unbundling the area and I bet you, in a few years, we shall see the effect and at that time, he will surely go down in history as one of the best presidents Nigeria has ever had.”Obi, speaking further, also compared past governors and the present ones, observing that governance was improving by the day in the country.“In the South-East, for instance, riding from the airport through Enugu, reveal commendable progress. The same with visits to Umuahia and Abakaliki.“Even among our neighbours, Delta has changed a lot; Akwa Ibom is no longer the same; in Cross Rivers and Bayelsa, one sees efforts to provide democracy dividends to the people. I knew what Benin and Akure used to be and what they are now,” Obi added.
