He made this disclosure while addressing some Nollywood and music stars under the auspices of “Creative Professionals,” who paid him a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The forces may be trying to frustrate the government’s efforts in tacking security challenges in the country; Jonathan however assured that the war will be won in no distant time.
Addressing the delegation which was led by an actor, Segun Arinze, Jonathan said: “One of our greatest challenges is this insecurity. We have our frustrations, we have issues of sabotage: internal and external, but we are working very hard and by the grace of God, we will overcome.”
He commended members of the entertainment industry for creating positive image for the country, but regretted that most politicians only generate negative issues.
According to him: “Somebody may just look at you as entertainers, but you are much more than just the entertainment industry because you create a positive image for Nigeria. Most of us politicians are just busy generating negative issues.’’
Earlier, Arinze had commended Jonathan for his administration’s support for the creative industry.
The actor claimed that never in the history of Nigeria had any President given the creative community the attention Jonathan had given them.
He said, “Your uncommon transformation has seen many of us travel to the best film schools around the globe to receive training we could only have dreamt about.
“We have received grants to make better films whereas we could not previously access loans.
“Under your administration, many of our members have received national honours, many of our members have gotten political appointments.”
Commending the President on his strides in the different sectors of the economy, Arinze urged him to remain focused and continue the good work.
“We salute you for your maturity in the face of unfair opposition, tyranny and cynics. At a time like this, as you prepare to come back and seek the mandate of Nigerians for another term, you can be rest assured that we are with you. We will support you. We will be there for you, just as you have been there for us,” he added.
