VIDEO | Under My Watch, CNN Projected Nigeria 3rd Fastest-Growing World Economy in 2015 – Jonathan

Speaking at the 190-year old Union, domiciled in the University of Oxford, Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan said his government was not perfect but it made Nigeria the biggest economy in Africa and the 23rd largest in the world.

Speaking on the ‘Transformation Agenda’ at Oxford University on Monday, Jonathan said his administration invested in Nigeria’s  youth, and made the country experience unprecedented growth.

“Under my watch, Nigeria was projected by CNN Money to be the third fastest-growing economy in the world for the year 2015. Nigeria was rated as the largest economy in Africa and the 23rd in the world by the World Bank and the IMF, with a GDP above US$570 billion.

“While serving as President of Nigeria, I worked for the next generation and not for the next elections. I have no regrets for what I did. Somebody must sacrifice and work for the next generation otherwise your children’s children will suffer the same predicaments as you have.”
