President Jonathan to broadcast to nation Tuesday

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan will address the nation Tuesday, the second time in nine days.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, said the address would be aired live at 7 a.m. on the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN).

It is not clear what the President plans to say.

In his October 1 address, the President claimed Transparency International had endorsed his administration’s anti-corruption efforts, a claim the global anti-corruption agency promptly denied.

It is not clear if the President will use tomorrow’s broadcast to apologise for the gaffe.

But presidency sources said Mr. Jonathan might address the nation on the impending handover of the contentious Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon.

SO FAR SHE HAS NOT COMMENTED ON THE DEVALUATION OF THE NAIRA OR THE INFLATION RAVAGING THE LAND TODAY. WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE INFLUX OF INVESTMENT SHE PROMISED BACK THEN.

        It’s crazy my brother. One wonders how poor people survive in this country. You find a very few set of people living it up big time with excessive stolen wealth and then this humongous set of people squeezing it out and hardly getting by on a daily basis, they die for lack of clean water, no access to health care, the basic is not even there to see and no hope in sight for them. It brings tears to my eyes. In the course of my job, I see pervasive poverty, at times, I feel very guilty for not being able to do more but I expect our leaders to feel worse in their conscience but alas, that’s not the case.

        Tell me, what can these leaders do when they’ve set out on the wrong path. Don’t be deceived, there’s no hope. Ive , also in the line of my duty, seen how our resources are shared among the government officials. There’s nothing left in the budget to help the poor or develop this country, just money to sustain the lifestyle of a few thrives. Nigeria, as it is, is not workable, the prospect for progress is bleak., vested intere
