I’m yet to complete my house in the village – Jonathan

complete his house in his hometown Otuoke in Bayelsa State.

According to him, he might give out the house before he passes on, if
he discovers that his children may not be willing to relocate to the

Mr. President said this in Lagos at a fund raising ceremony for St.
Stephens Anglican Deanery and Youth Development Centre, Otuoke.

His words, "We are all mortal beings, we are all biological specimen
so we will all die but when we die, what will we be remembered for,
what will we leave behind?

"I use to tell people that even the house I am struggling to build in
the village, these days in this global age, how am I sure that my
children will even stay in my root. They want to go to West Indies,
they want to go to Latin America.

"So, I was even joking with people that if I look at the behaviour of
my children and if I don't see any of them that will patronise the
village, I will donate my house before I die."

He called on the need for prominent Nigerians to make meaningful
contributions to the progress of poor communities in the nation for
the betterment of lives of the youth and empower them to make useful
contributions towards national development
