Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has urged leaders in Nigeria to value the interest of every section of the nation in order to build a united nation devoid of agitation, disunity and disenchantment.

Jonathan spoke on Saturday when he led members of the 1981 set of the University of Port Harcourt Alumni Association, to the king of Opume kingdom in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa, King Amalate Turner, NAN reports.

The former president described Nigeria as being blessed with both human and natural endowments which can only be enjoyed in a peaceful atmosphere.

Jonathan urged leaders to focus more on building a united nation where no one tribe or society should be more valued than the other.

He said, “If leaders derail, then there is bound to be disunity and disenchantment from those who feel not being accorded their rightful respect and value.”

Jonathan, who is an alumnus and a member of the pioneer graduate class of 1981 of the University of Port Harcourt, said the reunion programme was part of activities of the alumni aimed at fostering bond among old classmates.

According to him, it is also a platform to deliberate on issues affecting their alma mater and give back to the school and society in general.
