NIGERIA: Stop making provocative statements – Jonathan tells politicians

President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday enjoined politicians to desist from making provocative utterances that are capable of causing division in the country.

President Jonathan spoke Wednesday while swearing in his Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Prof. Rufa’i Alkali.

The President also swore in a Commissioner with the Federal Civil Service Commission, Mr. Simon Etim; as well as three permanent secretaries -Mr. Nanpon Danjuma, Mr. Binta Bello and Dr. Babatope Ajakaiye.

Addressing Professor Alkali who took over from Ahmed Gulak who had been relieved of his appointment last month, President Jonathan liken Alkali’s  position  to that of a Group Managing Director on political issues who should not treat his appointment with levity.
