Jonathan cuts short Equatorial Guinea trip, to return Thursday over Abuja blast

President Goodluck Jonathan has immediately suspended his plan to attend an African Union, A.U., summit in Equatorial Guinea, and will return to Nigeria Thursday after a car bomb killed at least 21 people in Abuja Wednesday.

The president travelled to the Central African nation Wednesday for the A.U. meeting just as a blast hit Emba plaza, a busy shopping complex in Wuse 2, Abuja.

Police said 21 persons had been confirmed dead and 17 injured. Force spokesperson, Frank Mba, said one suspect was arrested.

Presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, contacted PREMIUM TIMES late Wednesday to react to an earlier story about the president’s decision to continue the trip amid the explosion.

Mr. Abati denied that the president travelled while Abuja was attacked.

He said the president departed Abuja 3.30 pm Wednesday, which would mean about 30 minutes before the blast. Witnesses had said the bomb occurred at about 4p.m.

He said the president and his entourage were arriving at their hotel in Malabo, the Equatorial Guinean capital, when they received news of the attack.

The president took an immediate decision to return to Nigeria early Thursday, Mr. Abati said.

Mr. Jonathan travelled left to participate in the 23rd Ordinary Session of the African Union’s Summit of Heads of State and Government, Mr. Abati said in a statement.

He was accompanied by his wife, Patience, and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Agriculture, Water Resources, Health and Industry Trade and Investment.

The president planned to return on Friday.

In an earlier statement, Mr. Abati said the discussion at the summit would focus on the evolution and implementation of fresh strategies and measures to improve agricultural production and food security in the continent, among others.

He said this is keeping with the AU’s declaration of 2014 as the Year of Agriculture and Food Security.

The president and other African leaders, participating in the summit, will also deliberate on the appointment of judges of the African Court of Justice, the statement said, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

“They will deliberate on the appointment of judges of the African Human Rights Court of Justice and the appointment of the President and Vice-President of the Pan-African University,” the statement had said.

“The African heads of state and government will also consider and adopt the decisions and recommendations of the 25th Regular Session of the African Union’s Executive Board.

“They will also consider the Declarations of the 23rd Ordinary Session of the Conference of the union.’’

The presidential delegation is expected back in Abuja at the end of the summit on Friday.

    This action is nothing short of a RUSE (a reaction intended to deceive ), this moron left after the bombing in Abuja. I guess he must have read our comments on the net and immediately did an about face, to seem concerned. It is a tragedy in leadership when a “president” reacts with knee-jerk actions rather than using his God given brain…ooh well, this one obviously has NONE.

    As usual, another bomb attack to stop the president’s high profile engagement seen by wicked terrorists of having a possibility of boosting his influence and, in this case, helping to forge a bigger alliance against them – wicked terrorists. That suggests, there are sleeper terrorists in and around government passing information to the beastly terrorists.

    • Wähala

      Mr. Conspiracy Theorist,
      It’s no secret Boko Haram have penetrated this lame Govt… Dumbo himself said that much. As per influence, most of the world dismiss our Presido as a corrupt drunkard who runs a “non-existent Government” in Nigeria. Wallahi, na true!

          I have always said you’re a junky for news… sadly though, you can’t comprehend what you read. It’s bcos you expect news outlets to write what pleases you without/sans critical input. Nobody’s perfect alright, but your OgaOgogoro doesn’t seem to do anything right. The Point of reporting every step he takes is so he doesn’t keep stepping on dog sh*t… guess why? It’s bcos since Naija dogs eat sh*t, your mentor would acutally be stepping on human ati animal sh*t. Double wahala for a drunk. So, the critical press coverage with my in-depth analysis is meant to guide him in the right direction, no harsh intents. However, if you’re so miserable about reading Gospel… you can always quit coming to Premium Times. Deal?

        @Wahala, “non-existent Government” comment came from US. US has got a govt that spent over $800B + 4000 servicemen killed + over 19,000 maimed and injured in Iraq and today ISIS is in-charge. US after spending over $550B + over 3000 servicemen dead and a lot injured is negotiating with Taliban. The same US whose Sec of State(Mrs Clinton) could not declare BH a foreign terrorist organization under her watch is making does incendiary comments and our citizens are clapping hand for them. US has not removed the log in their eyes but are fishing for a speck in other people’s own.Our task as citizens is to proffer solution to govt and its agencies on how to solve the insurgency question not to engage on reckless statements that do us as a nation no good. For your information no country will love you more than yourself.

  • Wähala

    Be carefull there for a minute… caution!
    Deceitful Dr. Dumbo never left Naija soil in the first place. The Presidency simply floated the fake news that OgaOgogoro don lift off. The coward most likely floated away in his helicopter like he did the day some bad guys burst blom-blo over the fence in Yellow House, which ugly Marilyn Ogar later told us was an attempted jail break. Wallahi, Dumbo never left Sacred Naija for nowhere in particular, he probably went to Tinapa Cattle Ranch to Nurse a bottle of Og while Abati lied thru the nose to gullible Nigerians. Not Holy Wähala, mba nu. I know the creek crook all too well to swallow this cock-n-bull… As usual, the aim is to shamelessly capitalize on a tragedy to win sympathy from brain-dead sycophants who will see him as a concerned and caring President. If truly his emotions are with us, let Dumbo visit Chibok after 70 days of Trauma for victims’ family… that is, after visiting ground-zero in Abuja. My bet is he won’t!

    Jonathan does not care or give a rats behind about anything, His return was fake. He will go back, take a look, and then go back to his political campaigning as he did during the Chibok girls abduction, the Nyanya blast, and then this incidence. If he is pressured more on the issue, he wil then tell us that the incident either never happened or it was the plot of the APC to destabilize the nation after loosing the Ekiti elections. Jonathan has no intentions of doing anything to end this crisis until he is re-elected.

        • Adoki

          So if our President and C-in-C is airborne for 8 hours, he doesn’t hear anything about the situation in Nigeria until his aircraft lands in an airport? So if our President and C-in-C is in the air for 8 hrs and war breaks out in Nigeria, he does not hear until he arrives the other airport or lands at Abuja Airport? So if the President and C-in-C is airborne for 8 hours on his way back to Nigeria, he does not hear if a Coup is taking place in his country?

          Ours must be the only country in the world with a Commander-in-Chief like the one you are describing. Even worse, yours must be the only brain on planet earth working like the way you just reasoned above.

Amnesty Int’l sends me an alert each time your life is endangered in Nigeria by Boko Haram’s bombings, stop being silly. The man’s comment simply means it is virtually impossible that Dumbo made a U-turn bcos of a mall bombing. A man who went dancing after a park bomb killed multitudes and over 300 girls kidnapped in Chibok… Dumbo is a fraud, you’re his mugu. Get a life!

          Appears you operate in a rather confined realm full of many, very narrow presumptions… I doubt you are claustrophobic. You would have been highly uncomfortable by now if you were.

          While I have witnessed and I’ve been a victim of the many mediocre acts by different elements of the govt and their agents, I have also caught glimpses of some (though few) serious people in there, especially in security. The people that are trying to instigate a mob will not let you know that. And the people that are serious are too busy being serious to come here to debunk and disabuse the highly impressionable minds that come to these pages.

        I believe the president’s doctorate might not be worth the paper it’s on. Just saying…

          I feel you Steff. But please, tell us more about the parameters that are used to draw this conclusion about doctorates in general and it’s relationship to taming a mess that has been created by decades of intricate planning and manipulations in particular.

          It grinds me when people just sit at their keyboards and serve up anal suggestions or air opinions about things they have NO information beyond news bits to go on. This is made worse by the fact that the scope in question here is beyond the paygrade or ken of 99% of the commenters. Yes. I said it.

          Fecal posts like that of the “doctor’s” that I responded to above ARE the kind of stuff that should make anyone question a doctorate.

    As far as talking crap goes, a lot of cats on this forum are proving to be quite diarrhetic. I observed too (with pleasure), that a few surgeons are present here as well, and quite ready to rip new orifices for the cats to spew their crap out of…

    How so many people can think that the affairs of state can be analysed properly by harvesting conclusions drawn from half-thoughts and speculations is beyond me. Now, another bomb has gone off and lives lost and all the chatter is about if the president has sent the wrong signal or not.

    I am so ashamed of some of my fellow commentators on this forum…. We are talking about our compatriots being maimed by heartless extremists elements while most of us are here playing politics… Instead of having sobber reflection on this threat that is bedeviling the unity of this nation… Most people here are not better than our politicians… Some always celebrate these attacks and see it as opportunity to trade blames…. Anywhere my finding is that majority of the commentators here are politicians hiding under the opaque cloak of the media and all manner of internet outlets to propagate their agenda of further dividing ordinary citizens of Nigeria across ethnic, religious, political lines for their own political gains…. May God save Nigeria from enemies within
