Delta State Commissioner of Commerce and Industry, Chris Ekiyor has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for fighting corruption in the country.
Ekiyor, who said this in an interview with Vanguard also noted that the Jonathan administration was transforming the country.
“I have listened to the policy of government on corruption. Under Jonathan we see a vigorous effort to fight corruption.
“We are running a cashless economy already. Once money move under questionable circumstance you are questioned. Most state governments are doing this now. I am a Commissioner, gone are the days cashier pay contractors and bring the rest to the office of the boss. Everything is cashless now. Investigation takes processes to ensure nobody is jailed wrongly,” he said.
The commissioner also gave Jonathan a pass mark in the area of transformation.
“President Jonathan and the PDP have done so much in terms of transforming Nigeria. And nothing much has been said on these things but there is still a lot to be done,” he said.
To back up his claim, the commissioner cited roads constructed, universities established and the rejuvenated railway transport system.
Speaking further, Ekiyor said “Jonathan is the second war time president of the country. He is a civilian, never trained in the military but he is fighting terrorism which is the most difficult war because you don’t know your enemies.
“Under this war situation he is still performing, design for Niger bridge is on, same with the Coastal road in the Niger Delta.”
Ekiyor also said that the country’s health sector had been transformed under Jonathan.
