Jonathan 200.jpg 600President Goodluck Jonathan Thursday in Abuja urged foreign ambassadors serving in Nigeria to do their best to convey the positive realities of the country to the world.

Speaking at an audience with the outgoing Italian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Roberto Colamine, President Jonathan said that doing so, the envoys help immensely in correcting current misconceptions and adverse misrepresentations of Nigeria in the community.

“The knowledge have acquired here should be used positively to help us as back home,” the President told the ambassador.

President Jonathan commended Mr. Colamine for his untiring efforts to strengthen and expand areas of bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Italy during his tenure in Nigeria.

He particularly praised the ambassador’s facilitation of the training of some ex-Niger Delta militants in Italy as part of the Amnesty Programme, which, he said, had helped to restore relative peace and security to the region.

Mr. Colamine told President Jonathan that he had witnessed challenging political transitions in the country during his than four- tenure, but was glad to see the issues constitutionally resolved.

The Ambassador also commended President Jonathan for Nigeria’s continuing leadership role in Africa as well as its efforts to promote peace, political and democracy in all parts of the continent.
