Jonathan, in his New Year’s day broadcast to the nation yesterday, noted that all Nigerians of voting age are free to vote based on their conviction.
The president also emphasised that it is the duty of his administration to defend and protect such basic right for the citizens.
“All Nigerians of voting age are free to vote based on their convictions. It is our duty to defend and protect that basic right, and let no one be in doubt, we will,” the president said.  
He pledged that his government would remain fully focused on providing good governance and the delivery of better public services to Nigerians.
Jonathan further called for peace in Africa and an end to all conflicts on the continent, urging all Africans to promote democracy in their respective countries to ensure faster development, economic and political integration.
He saluted “the indomitable and resilient” spirit of Nigerians both at home and abroad, noting that the country’s “spirit of enterprise and the doggedness to succeed amongst all odds had been our strength.”
The President said the government would continue with programmes deliberately designed to create more jobs for the youth and enable them contribute more to the growth and development of Nigeria.
He said as Nigerians marked the beginning of 2015, a new nation was being born because of the foundations the country had laid, “working together for the good and progress of our dear fatherland.”
The president reaffirmed his commitment to working to ensure a secure future for the country and generations yet unborn, stressing that the preceding year, during which Nigeria celebrated her 100th year of nationhood, brought further progress, challenges and fresh opportunities to the country.
