Really??? My name has brought goodluck to Nigeria - President Goodluck Jonathan says

President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday Saturday
May 25th that his first name has brought some good
luck to Nigeria. While granting an interview
yesterday, the president said:
"Traditional societies attach some values to names.
That is why people select good names for their
children. In the scriptures sometimes, when God
sends you on some special assignment, He could
even direct, 'change the name of this child from this
to that. But the name in itself does not make much
difference because even from my village, there is one
of my peers that also answers Goodluck. Another one
that is a little older than me answers Lucky from my
small village and I didn't see the good luck and lucky
in them.
"In terms of bringing my name to bear in Nigerian
affairs, within this period, we have our challenges. Of
course, you are aware that we have our security
challenges. But in spite of the security challenges,
the country is moving on. I will say yes, it (his name)
brought some good luck to the country."
