REVEALED: The men, and woman who pressured Jonathan to concede defeat

As Nigerians and the international community continue to praise President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat to his main challenger, Muhammadu Buhari, in the March 28 presidential election, PREMIUM TIMES has received exclusive details of how the president took the decision of making the historic concession telephone call to Mr. Buhari.

Reliable officials, knowledgeable about the drama that unfolded at the presidential villa that March 31, said Mr. Jonathan was pulled by two contending forces: loyalists who kept pressuring him to concede defeat and congratulate Mr. Buhari, and hawks who insisted he and his party should strongly challenge the APC candidate’s victory.

Our sources said even before collation began at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Abuja, Mr. Jonathan had indicated he would accept whatever outcome once the election is considered free and fair.

But while the President was on the verge of keeping that promise, some “hawks” in the presidency and the party rushed to the first family’s official residence to warn him against any “hasty decision”.

“They were telling the president that a lot of options were still open, and that the game was not over,” one of our sources said. “They were doing all manners of analyses, and assuring the president that ultimately, he would triumph.”

“At a point the president became confused and it was clear the forces opposed to the president’s decision to concede victory was gaining control. As some of them were talking to the president in the villa, others who were far away were calling the President on telephone. The president was in a dilemma.”

Another presidential aide said while in that state of confusion, the President invited the Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, to ask his opinion.

Those who overheard the conversation between the two men said Mr. Chidoka begged the president to disregard any contrary counsel and quickly concede defeat.

“Mr. President, I can tell you that by congratulating Buhari, you would have done the unthinkable and history will surely be kind to you,” a presidential aide quoted the aviation minister as saying.

Our sources said as the President and Mr. Chidoka conversed, the Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke, arrived.

“He quickly joined Osita (the aviation minister) in appealing to the President to ignore those advising him not to concede defeat,” a witness said. “In fact, I saw Adoke and Osita kneeling before the president in deference and begging him to take the right decision in the interest of the country.”

Our sources said at this point, Mr. Jonathan appeared convinced. But more calls came in from people believed to be opposed to any concession move, and the president became confused again.

At that point, the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, arrived, and she quickly joined the party working to convince Mr. Jonathan to make the historic call.

While Mr. Adoke departed shortly after Mrs Okonjo-Iweala’s arrival, the finance minister and her aviation counterpart continued to appeal to the President to make the right decision.

At a point, the Special Assistant to the President on Domestic Matters, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa, joined the party.

He reportedly knelt before the president, held his hand, and said, “You need to congratulate Buhari now sir. I think you should leave this place on May 29 holding your head high.”

Mr. Dudafa then offered to place a call to Mr. Buhari so the President could speak with him. Mr. Jonathan agreed.

So at about 5:15 p.m. that March 31, Mr. Jonathan spoke to Mr. Buhari, congratulating him for his victory in the presidential election.

At 5:27 p.m., Mr. Chidoka, while still at the presidential villa, tweeted, “President Jonathan congratulates Gen. Buhari in a phone call this evening.”

He further tweeted, “President Jonathan will address the nation after a meeting with PDP officials.

“President Jonathan is a democrat by instinct, he has expanded the civic space and entrenched genuine democracy. A great future awaits him as sets a continental example on the essence of democracy.

“President Jonathan, by refusing to be an African Big Man, has indeed become an African role model. Soon when emotions subside, the story of Pres. Jonathan’s stubborn commitment to democracy and peace will be told.”

When contacted Monday, Mr. Chidoka said he was not prepared to discuss what transpired at the president’s residence on the day of the historic concession call.

Mrs. Okonjo Iweala could not be reached for comments. Calls to her spokesperson, Paul Nwabuikwu, did not connect.

With presidential election results from all but one of Nigeria’s 36 states counted, and Mr. Buhari, clearly in unassailable lead, President Jonathan had telephoned the APC candidate to concede defeat.

At the time the call was made, INEC was yet to declare Mr. Buhari winner because it was still expecting results from Nigeria’s remote Borno State.

By the time the Borno vote was added to the tally, Mr. Buhari garnered 15,416,221 votes to Mr. Jonathan’s 12,853, 162 votes.

The historic concession telephone call defused tension across Nigeria and has thrown up Mr. Jonathan as a democracy hero.

That conversation is believed to have saved Nigeria from descending into violence in the aftermath of the election.

In a nationwide broadcast after INEC officially declared Mr. Buhari winner, President Jonathan told Nigerians he kept his pledge to deliver a credible election.

    The just concluded March 28th 2015 presidential election in Nigeria was undoubtedly the most keenly contested ever. In a recent article, MARCH 28TH 2015 IS AN UNFAIR CONTEST BETWEEN BARACK OBAMA AND GOODLUCK JONATHAN, it was explained how the Obama White House, deployed its formidable bully pulpit in an orchestrated campaign against President Goodluck Jonathan, while clearly supporting the All Progressives Congress (“APC”) candidate (now President-elect) Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retired).

    One argued, therefore, that the election was effectively a competition between Goodluck Jonathan on one hand and Barack Obama on the other. In other words, General Buhari was not really on the ballot, as far as one was concerned.

    President Barack Obama’s decision to provide undeclared backing to the All Progressives Congress (“APC”) and General Buhari, violated a long-time American convention of non-interference in the elections of other sovereign nations.

    The series of patronizing actions, sponsored by the White House, culminated in a joint statement on March 30th 2015 by the American Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Mr. Philip Hammond, alleging that the election results “may be subject to deliberate political interference”.

    • bikky

      BS how? Did Obama campaigns for him or sent emissary to speak on his behalf,or did Obama thumb Print for him? This man forget the past and let together move Nigeria forward after all am not sure you are among the people that help put Jonathan there before .

  • shegxy

  • lookagain

    Osita, Okonjo and Adoke looking for soft landing by APC govt. this is obviously a sponsored article. Kneeling to beg GEJ, hish. Since when did the ministers love Nigeria that much. Abegi

    • Mosaku 147

      I wonder oooo.

    • Philex

      Just google an article by Chidoka on the day of the election titled “The Death of the African Big Man” on the back of Thisday newspapers and you see the kind of hypocrites these people really are.

    • Kolade

      Obviously, this cannot be a sponsored article. if you have been reading Premium Times for some time, you would have known that the medium has no sympathy for President Jonathan and his cabinet.

  • Danbab

    This story is written like people mentioned want their names written as able helpers. I don’t believe it, this people don’t want to get probed so they are dropping their names. How come we don’t have names of the so called hawks?

    • Mosaku 147

      Abi?

    • glo

      Gbam!

    • Philex

      See Chidoka for instance. He wrote an article in the back page of Thisday newspaper precisely on the day of the elections calling Buhari all sorts of names. He is now afraid of the fallout and is looking for a way to get some reprieve.

  • True son of the soil

    The truth is if Jonathan have done anything contrary , he surely knew the outcome (icc)

  • Joe

    Lagos SAI JIMI!!!!. LAGOS NEED CHANGE. VOTE JIMI so as to preserve and protect the future of your second, third and fourth generations.

    • Supo Orimogunje

      And bring retrogression back to Lagos again!
      How can voting thieves help Lagos?

  • wode

    Whichever way you look at it, Mr President has done the right thing irrespective of who did or did not advise/convince him. He is solely responsible for his action or inaction

  • Mosaku 147

    How come PT have refused in their report to mention the names of the so called hawks. This story is sponsored by Chidoka,Adoke and Iweala.rubbish!

    • Philex

      They are looking for soft landing by planting stories all over the place.

    • Ahmad

      Looks like you are making sense.

  • Philex

    See all these fraudsters and political jobbers they have come again, looking to cover their sins with propaganda and falsehood. See Osita Chidoka who wrote an article on the back page of Thisday precisely on the day of election abusing Buhari and calling him all sorts of names now wants to claim the good guy in the new dispensation. The same Chidoka who said democracy would regress backwards and that a Buhari presidency would be disastrous is now posing as Mr peace broker. The same one who stoked hatred and bitterness during the campaign now claim to be the ones to have douses the flame. These people are really shameless.

    • Colonel Mariama(rtd)

      You have had your time and we have heard you.
      We now know you to be such an ingrate who will stop at nothing to surly the reputation of honest people.
      Please take some time off and pleasure yourself. The rest of us truly want to move on. I hope you go blind soon.

  • Miver

    Big lie! Premiumtimes is doing a Yeo mans job for Chidoka,Okonjo and the AG.They are looking for lie.No be them make Jonathan conceded.Jonathan had no choice but to concede.Otherwise he would have been consumed by the fire and he knew it.

  • Frendy

    PT, stop feeding us rubbish,

  • Wähala

    This story does not tally with what transpired on the eve of that historic call. That Monday, a powerful delegation of African leaders led by Kofi Annan, John Amos and representative of AfDB, EU and UN in Nigeria, met and persuaded Dumbo to Bow&Go… so, what time of the day did that meeting take place if all the mentioned ministers in this report were kneeling in front of their demi-god and begging him to concede defeat? Where does the last-minute Orubebe drama to thwart democratic process fit into all this? My instincts are, Dr. Dumbo was warned of serious consequences by those African leaders acting on the prodding of the US/UK in particular, with the added pressure of prosecution at The Hague should his actions result in violence and bloodbath. As the coward Jona is, he blinked and quickly called Buhari to “make the bed” for a soft landing for himself… as the selfish politician he is. If any Nigerians applied pressure, it was Bishop Onayiakan of Abuja, Cmdr. Ubitu Ukiwe, Gen. Abdulsamai Abubakar and Aliko Dangote (the men in the now famous picture) who convinced Dumbo he had lost. Either way, let him pack out of our Aso Rock since the Nigerian landlords have give him his quit notice… Shikena!

    • Abiodun Tola Abdullai

      They are giving us the impression of good citizens to cover their back.No matter the purpoted actions they had taken that will not prevent them been tried for corruption especially the aviation and finance ministers

    • Gidi

      This story is more like PR job to make madam NOI and Minister of Aviation looks good.

      • Wähala

        Dr. NOI maybe, but the Minister of Aviation has only been on the job a few months and couldn’t have committed enough fraud to warrant covering his ass… maybe, he has been covering Stella Oduah until now and probably has some cases to answer. Sha, this is a very poor PR job by whoever wrote this watery story.

        • Guguru

          Wahala aka Segun aka Seguun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

          Ngozi your sweetheart is actually Dr. NOI? She has a doctorate? Did she steal the degree? Her mismanagement of the Nigerian economy is without equal. LOL.

          • Wähala

            She will soon leave government for good, let’s hope your dirty mama has the intellect to manage our finances… idyiot!

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Seguun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            LOL. My brother, you sound like Ngozi beat you last night. Why are you getting upset today like you did yesterday? Is Ngozi still the one wearing the trouser in your relationship? I hear you wear the skirt. LOL.

          • Segun

            The same way the Ota pedifile beat your wife while making love to her as you watched.
            Guguru did you read the papers yesterday?
            It seems that When you were in the hospital receiving treatment for psychosis , NOI was being honored by Fortune magazine
            I did not see your name amongst those honored. Why?
            Let me guess – fortune magazine does not recognize plagierist and 2nd rate people like Guguru.Lol

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            You mean Ngozi who has been linked to a mismanaged economy was honored for what again? Did you see my posts on the possible crimes and lies accomplished by Ngozi, the love of your life? Any words on the information I provided on Ngozi? Oh, I forgot, she might slap you and beat you if you ever browsed the information I provided, right? LOL.

          • Segun

            Try harder your psychotic mind is no longer functioning.
            I told you in a previous posting that you should hold your parents responsible for passing down very bad genes to you.
            That is why you are 2nd rate and would always remain 2nd rate.
            You are programmed to be 2nd rate from birth.
            Garbage in Gabage out- ha ha ha lol
            In your write up you acknowledge without knowing that NOI is repeatedly being honored-
            Your words- ” you mean Ngozi who has been linked to a mismanaged economy was honored for what again”
            Guguru she certainly is not being honored for being a certified plagierist like you.
            Take some time and find out why many reputable institutions/ organizations honor this woman.
            On the hogwash that you produced , I can only deduce that they are clearly manifestations of of a deluded mind in need of urgent treatment.
            While your envy and jealousy for NOI eats you to death know that NOI is being celebrated world wide for her achievements.
            Up NOI
            The Lord has made perfect all that concerns you in Jesus name . Amen .

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            Do you realize it is better to be anything but be considered a criminal? Ngozi seems like she will fit the Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves story. How do you defend a woman who has worked so conscientiously for a criminal administration? Di you hide your conscience in that wrapper that Ngozi left for you to wear yesterday? LOL.

          • Segun

            what I realize is that you are psychotic.
            You see things others don’t see and hear things others don’t hear.
            Clear signs of a deluded mind.
            You really need treatment.
            Your condition is getting worse everyday.
            Have you seen a psychiatrist?
            It is clear to everyone that Your fixation on NOI is borne out of inferiority complex and nothing else.
            Deep in side your sick mind you know that NOI is intellectual superior to your 2nd rate ass.
            That is what kills you.
            You are not known or recognized anywhere- how sad.
            Yet before your very eyes you see the world pour accolades on NOI.
            Every other month She is honored by some respected institutions/ organizations in the world.
            Yet nobody recognizes Guguru the plagierist.
            It must be really painful. Lol
            The more you write the more you expose how sick you truly are.
            Guguru I have always told you that the only people you have to blame are your parents who passed down inferior genes to your sorry ass.
            That is the truth- you were programmed from birth to be inferior.
            So Go home to the psychiatric hospital where you belong and tell your deluded tales to your friends there.
            For no normal human believes the Gabage you are spilling out.
            Kpele

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson

            LOL. May be I am psychotic, I have no idea. But it takes one to know one, right? LOL. At least, my wife does not beat me and ask me to wear here wrapper the way Ngozi does with you routinely. LOL. By the way, what size of wrapper and bra do you usually wear?

          • Segun

            Guguru- ” maybe I am psychotic, I have no idea . But it takes one to know one right?”
            The answer is wrong
            Only a warped mind would think this way.
            Certainly you are not suggesting that the psychiatrist who diagnosed you as being mad is also mad.
            Symptoms of a deluded mind.
            However I am glad that you have accepted that you belong in the mad house.
            That gives me great relief.
            I would make arrangements to get you to the psychiatric hospital in Yaba- lol
            We certainly are making progress.
            Tell me has the Ota pedifile agreed to put in a word for you?
            My understanding is that he has agreed to put in a word for his two favorite slaves- the Anambra mugu- Soludo and the man woman – ezekwesili.
            You know the Ota pedifile is a master of trade by batar
            Soludo traded in his ugly wife for a life line while the man woman has functioned as his personal sex toy for years . Lol
            Let’s hope the Ota pedifile does not renege on his promise .
            He may demand more hours from Soludos ugly wife. Lol
            You asked me what bra size the Ota pedifile wears?
            Don’t you think you should ask your wife and ezekwesili this question?
            They know every inch of the orangutans body intimately – lol

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            I get the feeling your wife Ngozi has been beating you every night, long before I ever mentioned it. Your devotion to the criminal NOI is scary. Arte you also a criminal since you seem content supporting a criminal?

          • Segun

            So is your devotion to the Ota pedifile. Lol
            Your psychotic mind keeps playing tricks on you.
            It seems that your delusions know no bounds.
            I told you once that NOI is not a product of deprivation like the Anambra mugu – Soludo or the man woman ezekwesili.
            These people came out of abject poverty so they would do anything to ensure that they do not return to that condition.
            NOI is a platinum spoon child. Who had the best growing up and this is reflected in the way she deals with people and her perspective about life.
            She is content with her archivements and grateful to the Almighty for all the blessings.
            Guguru the plagierist- money can’t buy you happiness remember?
            Ask people like the man woman who has acquired large tracks of land in the FCT by acting the prostitute. She even
            Allowed the Ota pedifile to stroke her melons in public – how low can this pastors wife go for relevance? lol
            Or The Anambra mugu – Soludo who corruptly received billions during the consolidation process only to become a certified mumu to some of his illiterate Anambra brothers. They took that f##l to the cleaners.
            my people refer to these people as the ” wise man who died in the f##lish mans backyard.
            Lol
            While your psychotic mind continues to hallucinate remember that NOI has moved on.
            She has served Nigeria as a minister twice- she never lobbied for the position on both occasions
            She has been MD of the world bank- given to her strictly on merit. She did not have to be a slave- lol
            She has been honored by many reputable organizations/ institutions around the world.
            The question I have to ask is what about
            2nd rate Guguru?
            What have you archived with your psychotic brain?
            I guess you are listed in the plagiarism hall of fame. Lol

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            Why was Ngozi who beat you everyday and who forces you to wear her wrapper , replaced from Obasanjo’s cabinet as minister? Was it because she was a criminal? LOL. You and your Ngozi wife are shameful. I bet you shave the hair on Ngozi’s chest and back everyday.

            Nigerian Foreign Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has
            resigned, days after being replaced as head of the country’s economic
            reform team.

            BBC, 3 August 2006, “Nigerian foreign minister resigns”

          • Segun

            There goes a psychotic mind again
            Delusions galore
            Recall that I told you that your mind is playing tricks on you.
            Your condition is fast deteriorating?
            Have you taken your drugs?
            It seems Your 2nd rate brain has packed up- lol
            Did you read your own posting?
            Your words
            ” nigerian foreign minister Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala has resigned days after being replaced as head of the country’s economic reform team”
            Thanks for this post. It puts to rest all your bogus posting that she was sacked by the Ota pedifile.
            What is clear is that NOI voluntarily resigned from government when it became clear that the main reason for which she was made minister was no longer under her control.
            She did the honorable thing and resigned.
            The question is how many other ministers have had the courage to do so when they are treated badly?
            Note that this was the second time NOI was resigning from the Ota pedifiles government.
            The first time was when the Ota pedifile tried to remove the budget office from the ministry of finance- remember. NOI resigned and it took the intervention of the then VP-
            Alhaji Atiku Abubakar , NOIs father and a few others to persuade her to remain.
            NOI has pedigree.
            She is not a slave like the man woman – ezekwesili or the Anambra mugu Soludo
            She has options .
            Shortly after she left government she was appointed as the Managing Director of the world bank where she was the direct boss of the man woman- ezekwesili lol
            In the case of the Anambra mumu – Soludo he was fired by Yaradua . He then went to his home state to contest to be governor three times and lost all the elections he participated in- lol
            The funny thing is that he was turned into a mugu- an ATM machine for his illiterate brothers- lol
            The economics professor was became a slave of Chris Uba – a stack illiterate lol
            Tell me who is more of a f##l ,The Nsukka professor or Chris Uba a certified illiterate?
            Lol
            I am really enjoying playing with your 2nd rate brain. Lol

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            LOL. Wow, she lost control of her position and today she is getting awards? What about Nigeria’s economy, did she not lose control of that one too? She resigned because no one would buy her wicked plans for Nigeria under Obasanjo’s regime. Her wickedness allowed her to grow thick hair on her chest and on her back, which you are now pulling out with your bare hands out of love and sacrifice for the corrupt and dishonest liar you married as a wife and lover, Ngozi. With that much hair, I bet she has thick muscles all over her legs, groin, and face, which i know you have to deal with when you touch her, right? Tell me, in how many ways does she beat you everyday with all that scary muscles in her body ( I hear she has a six-pack), and all that thick hair on her chest? LOL.

          • Segun

            You must be describing the man woman -ezekwesili
            Have you see the muscles on that creature?
            She resembles a silver back gorilla? Lol
            She is already going bald and her voice is getting deeper by the day. Makes Barry whites voice sound like a child’s lol
            People actually believe that ezekwesili was born a man but underwent a sex change sometime in her life.
            The result is what you see today- a hybrid between a man and a woman. Lol
            However the Ota pedifile prefers him/ her that way- lol
            He enjoys the fact that he can have sex with both a man and woman at the same time since the man woman – ezekwesili carriers both sex organs lol
            Tell me what happened to ezekwesili at the world bank?
            Why was she fired?
            Is it because they discovered that this 2nd rate fraud lacked the intellectual capacity to hold a secretarial position?
            What about the Anambra mugu- who embacked on a failed consolidation program that cost Nigeria 5.8 trillion Naira
            In the words of El Rufia ” the consolidation program ended up like an aborted pregenacy ” in the end Nigeria had to bring in a real economist – Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to clean up his mess.
            Indeed Amcon is a direct result of the Soludo failed consolidation program for the Nigerian banking system- what a pity
            Yet this slave of the Ota pedifile is still hoping against hope to be appointed a minister simply because He has served the pedifile well as a personal slave. Lol
            Having admitted that you are psychotic don’t you think you are in no position to talk about anyone loosing control since you are not in control of your own faculties?
            Mad men can not sit in judgment over normal humans- remember
            Thank God you have again stated that NOI resigned- period
            All your speculation is just a product of your deluded mind.
            So go and take your drugs now and calm down
            Up NOI
            You are blessed

          • Segun

            The personal slave of the Ota pedifile is back at it again.
            Let me ask you how painful was it to see the ota pedifile mount your ugly wife?

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            It was as painful as watching Ngozi slapping you because you did not greet her “Good morning” yesterday. Remember, she wears the trousers while you wear the skirt, right? LOL.

          • Segun

            I am glad you have now admitted at last that you are a slave to the Ota pedifile.
            An object to be used and disposed of like garbage.
            Tell me how is slave life?
            You remind me of his other slaves – Soludo and ezekwesili- Anambra salves who endure public humiliation in the hope that they would be compensated with a left over ministerial position- what a pity
            While you struggle to impress your slave master know that NOI is celebrating life and being honored all over the world.
            Are you going to be at the literary award ceremony for her son next month?
            Let me guess – the answer is No
            The ota pedifile would not give you permission to leave his farm. Lol
            I almost forgot that slaves don’t have a mind of their own. They do what their master tells them.
            Kpele.

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            What literary award ceremony are you talking about? You mean her son the fellow con man who set up Ventures Africa without disclosing his affiliation to Ngozi, so that Nigerians will think it is a real organization? When is Ngozi preparing to let you wear the trousers? Are you not tired of being a woman wrapper? LOL.

          • Segun

            How can a psychotic mind see anything as being normal?
            Not everyone has to declare that they are slaves of the Ota pedifile in order to get ahead remember.
            What does ventures have to do with NOI?
            Ventures is a private company operating on its own. It has no affiliation with NOI.
            But I can understand how a sick mind like yours would like to link everything together.
            For you one can only archive success if you are somehow in bondage- like your slave relationship with the Ota orangutan.
            It may interest you to know that a highly respected global business magazine is in discussions with ventures to take up an equity stake.
            That shows that NOIs son is doing something right.
            My question to you is what has your own crack head children archived?
            0- ha ha ha lol
            I told you Gabage in Gabage out.
            So while you try to compete in your psychotic mind with a person who is far superior in every sense always remember that you were programmed from birth to be 2nd rate.
            Up NOI
            You are blessed.

    • sawston

      Just what I thought. You are spot on and hit all the right notes. The fact is that Jonathan made the decision to concede because for him, self-preservation comes first. Faced with choosing between self-preservation and self-destruction, he made the right choice. Remember that Jonathan as C-in-C and with all the Nigerian military power at his disposal was afraid to visit Chibok or North-East out of self-preservation. Since then, I knew Jonathan is not capable of doing a Gbagbo show.

Are you afraid she might beat you if you ask such a questions since she is the one wearing the trouser and you are the one wearing the skirt?

    • Screw-em

      @ Wahala, well said, ..but, does anyone seriously believe 9ja’s would have gone to “war” to ensure Dumbo remains in power?..Seriously everyone knows civilized politician that loses elections in the West promptly concedes by placing calls to their opponent without this euphoria. What is so fantastic about Dumbo’s action? some claim it’s un-african,…un-african indeed!!!!… Ghana, S/Africa, Senegal and a host of other countries all had a peaceful transfer of power recently in a democratically held election and heavens did not fall. But here we are praising Dumbo who, for all we know, has the Lilly liver of a mouse to fight. His action in my view holds absolutely nothing to be hailed or praised. Any dumb moron knows Dumbo had no chance in hell in winning the election even if he contested the results in our kangaroo courts with Judges paid with truck load of $$$$’s…..He can visit and seek the support of every fellow Klep all he wants, It will not stop Buhari from ensuring all monies stolen by him and his 3000 thieves from coughing out every Kobo they stole in the past 6years. Even if it takes uncountable Heimlich Maneuvers. Kirikiri and Kuje prison gates await their ugly ass’…….lol

    Total Rubbish. The fact is that Jonathan was boxed in. His plan to destroy our democracy by offering Tinubu VP plus $2 billion dollars (N400 billion naira, to pair up with a Northern President has been announced tyo the world by Tinubu. His next option to hand over to the military was resisted by both the Military and the US, UK and others. Finally he considered Gbagbo option and chickened out because hew would quickly end up in the ICC jail. Having absolutely no other option the the frightened, Most corrupt human on earth, quickly conceded.

  • burning spear

    (President Barack Obama’s decision to provide undeclared backing to the All Progressives Congress (“APC”) and General Buhari, violated a long-time American convention of non-interference in the elections of other sovereign nations.

    The series of patronizing actions, sponsored by the White House, culminated in a joint statement on March 30th 2015 by the American Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Mr. Philip Hammond, alleging that the election results “may be subject to deliberate political interference”.

    This broadside was released when the vote collation was still ongoing in Abuja under the watchful eyes of the American Ambassador to Nigeria, who stayed glued to Jega the INEC chairman-thereby casting undue aspersion not only on the entire electoral process and the almost thirty million voters who participated in it, but indeed the nation itself.

    This was the second unsolicited and unwarranted diatribe by the American and British pair, the first being the denigrating joint missive authored by the same duo on March 21st 2015, precisely seven days prior to the election.
    The said election has already occurred, but the repercussions from the historic event shall continue to generate reactions for many days, weeks, months, years and perhaps for all time)sarki

    With this revelation, are those fellow Nigerians still of the opinion that GEJ should be awarded some international awards for calling GMB to concede?. We are too sentimental this is why we never make the right choices, we should rise the bar really high for our leaders and demand more of them if we truly want to go anywhere. I still maintain the position that, with the margin of victory for GMB, he had no choice but concede rather than waste anybody’s time and energy. If he had dear plunged Nigeria into chaos, it would have consumed all including himself. Lastly, I hope this is not a ploy to campaign for the Aviation & Finance ministers to hang on to their jobs?. If so, this will be a joke because we all know where they stand and we don’t want these kinds of people decide our future….try something different.

    • kingsley g

      From the story above it is obvious that there were two camps; one in favor of Mr President conceding defeat and the other was not and that may b reason he was confused at a certain stage. He may as well have ignored their advice to concede defeat and the country might b in tumoil by now. He acted rationally, he did the best for the country, he held on to his promise that his political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian. Kudos Mr president

  • tsunami1earthquake

    I’m happy that Jonathan did what he did and saved the nation huge troubles. Those still refusing to acknowledge this rare feat in the annals of Nigerian history could carry their personal hate to the grave. Just close your eyes for one moment and think what would have happened if Jonathan had done otherwise, which, of course, he was capable of doing! The inferno, killings, maiming and the attendant refugee problems that could have resulted would be something unimaginable. Even Nigeria’s neighbouring countries had been subtly advised in the period running up to the election to keep an alert for this possible unprecedented movement of refugees through their respective borders! We thank God that this did not happen. I cannot understand why some people would like to carry grudges and intense hate to their graves; that would be very unfortunate for them. President Jonathan, I salute you immensely for the great heroic act you’ve performed. Your action rubbished the prediction of an Armageddon of cataclysmic proportion in a Nigeria of 2015 by those who didn’t wish Nigeria well. This shows there are still some good people in Nigeria whose prayers are very dear to Almighty God.

    The linking of all this concession of defeat to a ploy by the mentioned ministers to remain employed in a Buhari government is a thinking that is really relatively childish. By all standards the lady and gentlemen mentioned are no pushovers and are Nigerians who are as qualified as any other Nigerian, irrespective of political leanings, to be enlisted into the service of the federal government. We are not running a government where the childish thinking of a ‘winner-takes-all’ prevails. Even in the American system we have adopted, the American president could and has severally enlisted the services of persons with different political leanings from the President’s to serve the White House in whatever capacity. What this means is that an American president looks for the best and brightest, irrespective of political leanings. Political leanings or not, everybody belongs to the same country. A loafer would not be invited to serve just because he/she had been seen to be shouting his/her voice hoarse on behalf of that government. No, that’s never done.

    FORMER Federal Commissioner for Information and South South leader, Chief Edwin Clark yesterday condemned in very strong terms, the presentation of Certificate of Commendation by the President of the United States of America, President Barrack Obama to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega.

    Speaking to Journalists yesterday in Abuja, Chief Clark stressed that the presentation of a ‘Certificate of Commendation’ to Jega over the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections March 28th, 2015 with the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly polls yet to be conducted was too hasty,

    Clark who urged the US to leave Nigeria alone, said that Nigeria remains an independent country capable of doing its things, its own way and not according to the dictates of the western world, adding, ” I was surprised that Barack Obama gave Professor Attahiru Jega an award when the elections are still on . Obama should be tactful in handling the affairs of Africa. US should leave us alone, Nigeria is an Independent country. They tried it Egypt, they should not try anything in Nigeria

        JONATHAN: Beware of Western intervention!!

        I am informed that some western powers are somewhat attempting to
        interfere with Buhari’s on-going court case. I have not confirmed it yet.
        Jonathan is urged to stay firm with a standard answer to them that the
        Constitution of Nigeria is supreme and binding on him on both he, Buhari
        and all other contestants in the last 2015 election.

        The Constitution of Nigeria is not negotiable with any foreign government,
        not least with the clutch of countries whose most recent interventions in Africa

        not to mention Egypt where a military government has now followed western
        intervention, with the Egyptian Army stuck in a stop-fight war with the overthrown
        Islamist party which had hugely won the election in the wake of western intervention.

          BUT JONATHAN IS NOT ONE OF THOSE 13 PEOPLE WHO SUED BUHARI TO COURT.
          HOW CAN WESTERN POWERS BE PUTTING PRESSURE ON JONATHAN? FOR WHAT?

      • aljihadi

        “Sharia should be introduced all over Nigeria. I will continue to show openly and inside me,
        the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria. God willing,
        we will NOT stop the agitation for total implementation of Sharia in the country.
        It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the context of one Nigeria,
        to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims
        in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims on
        the need to promote the full implementation of Sharia law
        .”

  • lawyer d.a.l.l.e.y

    Dear sir,

    Enlightened Nigerians Versus Muhammadu Buhari

    Please could the interested parties in the 13 court cases filed against
    Muhammadu Buhari for prima facie dis-qualification for submitting a recitation
    of a dud Wasc/Cambridge certificate make haste now to take out a subpoena,
    for him to produce his claimed Wasc certificate at the next hearing on April 22nd.
    And to answer questions on it.

    Nothing in the amended civil procedure Act precludes this recommended step through
    ex parte application. This single procedural step advised will put an end to Buhari’s ploys
    and put paid to delay tactics Buhari might wish to use to defeat the rule of law and virtually
    steal the presidency of Nigeria, without having a constitutional right to it.

    • att. ifeanyi O (Texas)

      Buhari either has to present his claimed WASC in court and proceed for swearing-in;

      or, fail to present it in court and he’s dis-qualified pronto. No other option is opened.

        Re: Enlightened Nigerians Versus Muhammadu Buhari

        Nigerian law practice is shambles. Lawyers just dress up funnily in wig
        and gown and bib to boot to go meet a similarly dressed Judge and they all
        purposely engage in frivolity in court without ever touching the merits of the
        case they all dressed up so zanily for. Funny creatures all!

        They don’t even have Civil Procedure Act but rather piecemeal High Court Rules.

        What you urge is of course the excellent step here in the United States of America.
        But over there in Nigeria, they’re shackled to what they call NOTICE TO PRODUCE;
        a totally useless path where the defendant is given immunity from questioning.

        That’s not law practice – what they do in Nigeria – but shambles!
        Whichever way it goes though the shambolic court rules in Nigeria thankfully
        restrict Buhari’s options to two. Their rules close the door at Buhari’s face;
        for otherwise, Buhari will like to produce that type-written, made-up statement
        done last year by the current Principal of the Katsina Provincial School.

    Its madness for any human to compare Lincoln to Buhari—-Lincoln did not forge his School cert–or sent innocent to jail for 300 years– Lincoln did not execute drug offenders while their case was on appeal for the rigging machine of the USA under Obama–Buhari would never have become president of Nigeria he was rigged by Jega–That is why Obama gave Jega an Award days after the presidential elections—

    • burning spear

      FACTS MUST BE AS STUBBORN AS PEOPLE U ARE DELUSIONAL: So Nigerians must be reminded of our history of violent transitions of political power. We are a nation of homicidal coup plotters. There are those who would keep pretending that Dr. Jonathan gave up power because this election showed a mandate. A fair win is a fair win but Gen. Muhammadu Buhari merely won aN ELECTION BASED ON THE DESIRE OF THE WESTERN WORLD TO IMPOSE A PUPPET ON US. Regardless, even indisputable national mandates have NOT always guaranteed peaceful transfers of political power. On June 12, 1993, Chief MKO Abiola won the freest and fairest all-corners-of-Nigeria presidential election. Rather than the Presidency however, he was harassed, jailed, tortured and then murdered BY THE FULANIS AND YORUBAS-CELEBRATING THE STOLEN VICTORY OF JONATHAN.

  • asking question

    FOUR QUESTIONS FOR PRESIDENT JONATHAN

    Before Mr. Goodluck Jonathan shortly walks away a happy man, i will like to ask him
    four [4] questions to ponder more seriously than the din of praise he’s getting gratis:

    • Do you know of any country in this world – just one – where an Islamist party, like APC –
    was ensconced in national power and was later removed peacefully through free and fair
    election?

    • Do you know of any multi-religious country in this world where communal peace followed
    the inauguration of an Islamist party, like APC – just mention one country?

    • asking question

      (2)…..Four Questions For President Jonathan

      • Do you know of any country with over 80 million Christians who found nationwide Sharia Law
      congenial and who happily reconciled peacefully with Sharia Law as customary law, the way
      Sharia Law is falsely described by Muhammadu Buhari who’s pledged to foster universal
      Sharia Law, as though any native tribe inside Nigeria is Arabic – to warrant Sharia Law
      becoming any ethnic group’s customary law in Nigeria?

      • By what means would those hard done by in Nigeria – particularly the 12million + dissenters
      who voted for you rather than for Muhammadu Buhari – protect themselves peacefully against
      a resulting Islamic State of Nigeria, other than by armed struggle – after you shall have
      walked away a happy man – given that nationwide Sharia Law is mere euphemism for
      Islamic State of Nigeria?

      • Guguru

        Answer to your first two question is Egypt. Secondly, Jonathan is the first Nigerian President to attend an OIC conference. No Muslim President of Nigeria has ever attended an OIC conference on behalf of Nigeria.

        • akinlaja

          So what exactly are we saying??

          • Guguru

            akin,

            I was trying to help the person asking the question get over their bias because they want to frame issues as a religion one not knowing that Jonathan did more harm to religion in Nigeria than any other President.

          • akinlaja

            Exactly my point sir. My poser was to have been directed at “asking question”

          • New Nation

            You better don’t worry yourself.This people(burning spear aka Deri and co) are merely justifying their pay.They promised heaven and earth that Jona will win the election. The mind game they are now playing is to throw into the public space and deceive feebleminded Nigerians why jona the most clueless president ever in history lost the election.They ‘ll come up with all kinds of reasons but not the obvious his very corrupt tendencies and visionless style.

            IBB took Nigeria to IOC after he over threw Buhari. Yet, not a single Muslim has attended any IOC meeting. Instead, a Christian (Jonathan) chose to attend an islamic meeting. Don’t you see that as strange? IBB and Jonathan are PDP members, are they not?

        • Dave

          guguru,

          Your name really betrays you. The Islamist party in Egypt was removed
          by a combination of massive riots and military coup. Is that peaceful?

          • Guguru

            Yes, but the Islamic Brotherhood which was in power actually ran the country peacefully. There were no riots when they were in power. i am glad you mentioned the military contributed to the violence which is contrary to the question asked.

Non-nigerians who are not at home with our decision are free to take the next available flight to their country or somalia. Why this endless hate, even Jonathan has conceded to join Nigerians on this journey back to glory, himself agreeing to “cooperate’ with Nigerians to bend the constitution and allow a man ‘without’ certificate to rule us wen those with cert. have failed us…so what?!! If lie peddling champions like Funny-kayode are begging already bcs he knows the truth, I wonder where you ppl come from. Well, the gud news is, Nigerians have moved on beyond the lies and propaganda of certificate,north-south dichotomy, Obama influence, buhari’s failed health and so on,and there remains a ‘last chance ‘ for whoever is interestd in joining the train to do so. But after all is said and done, whoever still wishes to pitch tent with falsehood and lies and remains disgruntled, then I’d say he/she has a fixed delusion that cannot be cured in Nigeria. So pls take the next available flight, thank God our dear outgoing president rehabilitated some airport for thisthis purpose. A word is enough for the wise.

    Why do we care whether President Jonathan was convinced to make a call or not? Nigerians have this habit of not saying bad things about the ‘dead’. It is just an extension of their religion, culture etc.
    President Jonathan could have carved a status for himself by not recontesting. Most Nigerians would have viewed his governance in higher esteem by quantifying ability in office and manner of exit. On this occasion, he chose to contest. He went round for ‘Jet Flying Men of God’ to bless him. He blessed ‘Royal Fathers’ with unbudgetted sacks of Dollars and could not communicate his little achievements.
    At the end of it all, the ordinary people of Nigeria who he considered less, made their decision on his employment; and offered him no re-employment. Does that make him a hero by accepting the vedict which was inevitable? He is a nice man by nature and would find a way of developing himself into a hero by managing the exit gracefully.
