Nigerians will praise me after I leave office – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday said he will continue to do his best in solving Nigeria’s challenges, but said he does not expect praise while still in office.

Mr. Jonathan said he understands that his current actions and achievements will only be justified and applauded after he had left power.

Mr. Jonathan stated this at the presidential villa when ‎a delegation of traditional rulers and leaders from Bayelsa State visited him.

The group, led by Governor Seriake Dickson, said its mission was to show solidarity with the president ahead of the 2015 election.

Amongst the notable personalities on the team were the Amayanabo of Twon-Brass, Alfred Diete-Spiff‎, Bayelsa State Chief Judge, the Speaker of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly, and the former Managing Director of NDCC, Timi Alaiyibe.

Mr. Jonathan said the constant criticism of his government do not come as a surprise to him.

‎He said he is aware that if he performs poorly, the people of Bayelsa would be embarrassed, therefore he must work hard to perform well to build a better Nigeria for Nigerians.

‎”The new year is full of challenges for Nigerians because of the early elections. Everywhere will be hot from January 2nd,” the president said.

“I assure you that I am here by the grace of God with the willingness of Nigerians. If Nigerians say I
shouldn’t be here, I wouldn’t have been here. We contested election in 2011 and Nigerians voted for us.

“I am your own, if I don’t do well, the shame will be on you. If I do well, you will have some kind of pride. I will do my best,” he said.

The president expressed concern over how Nigerians criticise him and his government using the social media.
“These days, there are all kinds of stories. It is all over the world, leaders are being lambasted, especially with the social media now.

“People use what knowledge had created for negative reasons. Just as I was told that the person who invented dynamite regretted that invention because he thought he was coming up with something to solve human problem, but when he got to know about the level of destruction: human lives that are being blown up because of explosion, the man regretted that invention,” he said.

“What is supposed to be used for the common good was turned to negative purposes.

“I always say that I will not even expect praises now because hardly do people praise serving leaders. It is when you leave, people will begin to know.

“When you leave, people will begin to compare what you have done over the period vis-a-vis what others have done, then they will compare you with whoever takes over.

“Probably that is the time some people will begin to say good about you. But I will do my best to make sure that we do change things.

“We are trying to create enabling environment for our economy to thrive irrespective of the challenges we are having in the petroleum sector and the security challenges we have.

“I will do my best so that by the time I will leave, you will be able to say that when our son was there, he served the country well so that one day, another son of Bayelsa may be given another opportunity to serve Nigerians,‎” he said.

Speaking earlier, the Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Dickson, said they were in the State House to felicitate and wish President Jonathan and his family a victorious new year.

He said the president’s home state was peaceful and was in safe hands.

He assured the president that the Bayelsa people support him.

Mr. Dickson praised the president for his transformation agenda saying it was impacting positively on Nigerians.

  • the truth

    May God continue to guide and protect you sir! As earlier said people on ground know for a fact your accomplishments. You are criticized by outsiders who have in years not travelled back home and rely on propaganda news outlets for their source of news. We all know the truth and the truth ill set us free.

    • Giganto

      It means over 100m Nigerians live abroad! The guy is still deluded. Just get real and start accepting that your candidate, whom we voted overwhelmingly in 2011, is a monumental and unmitigated failure. His malfeasance is about to consume him. The time for change has come and it must happen NOW!

      • the truth

        how did you get the 100 million figure. Please explain.

        • southsouthchairman

          the same way you concluded that only outsiders who live abroad are critics of jonathan. Any same human who is not biased by tribe or religion and is not gaining financially from this regime can see that it is utterly useless, and I dare say the worst in our history.

          • Oleku

            Not every one takes illegal substance like Ayatollah Tinubu mumu

          • endingNaija

            Tawanda Oleku, so you dey take di ting! hm hm na wa o. No wonder you always sound incoherent. Now go back and take it now now and mix it a bit with Ogogoro!

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Tell the nincompoop !!

    • GEJisaDISASTER

      Why not tell us the truth about GEJ’s impunity, corruption and insecurity so we can be free? Good luck!!

    • Alcindo Satori

      …Amen!

    • Oleku

      Amen my brother, those who read Premium Times and Sahara Reporters are bitter naijas in abroad–I have been kicking their asses for years on SR and I will continue to do so till we clean off Naija from jihadists who engages in propaganda to pave way for them to grab power–the clown Tundemash ati Wähala are two bitter scallywags who takes joy in deriding mr president–but come 2015 they will bury their heads in shame–I take it as a patriotic duty to make sure I keep those clowns on check and will keep opening their Nyansh–you are on track brother please your unrelenting contribution to Nigeria is highly welcome

      • endingNaija

        Ole, are you talking of a Nigerian election or an Otuoke election? Which one are you talking about Ole?

        • Oleku

          Whichever or whatever election one thing I assure you is that GEJ will defeat Imam Buhari in a landslide victory–naijas will vote for a democrat against a coupist–a peace maker against dogs and baboons will be soaked in blood–a listener against a despot–shame will be yours

          • endingNaija

            Ole, “Pastor” Goodluck Jonathan is headed towards Otuoke come Feb 2015. At least he has an Anglican church built for him by his corrupt contractor friends. There he will carry out his corrupt church duties in conjunction with his CAN collaborator-Ayo Oritsejafor. As for Nigerian elections, just forget that and stop playing!

          • Oleku

            My good friend TAWANDA has given you a brotherly advice and if I were you I will heed to it, get enough wipes for Imam Buhari for he will cry over and over come February

          • endingNaija

            Tawanda Oleku, are you going to serve as Usher in the Otuoke Anglican Church where Brother “Pastor” will carry out his priestly duties as allocated to him by his Israeli business partners during his incessant “pilgrimage” to israel? I am just asking.

        • the truth

          This gentleman wAs respectful to u,but as usual u are always violent.nobody is fighting with u,u need to go back home to see things first hand

          • endingNaija

            which gentleman ole na oleku na the “truth”? Did you mean yourself?

  • Alcindo Satori

    We hear you Mr. Presido! Continue your good work; we (SE, SS, Benue, Plateau, Taraba, Adamawa, Bauchi, Niger, Zamfara, Ondo, and Ekiti are solidly behind you! Nasarawa shall fall in line soon!!

    • segun

      Alcindo Satori, you are Niger Delta. You are SS. You are Ijaw. Given what your Ijaw president -Goodluck Jonathan has caused in Yorubaland, we know where we are headed-Se o gbo? meaning You hear? Your slogan is FORWARD ONTO REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AND SOUTH EAST, IT IS THE SWEET OIL IN OUR BACKYARD. So how come Ondo and Ekiti suddenly become part of South and South East? Have you created a new Nigerian map? Ekiti and Ondo are Yoruba states-they are NOT SS or SE. Please count we Yorubas out of your republic and corrupt calculation. We are Yorubas. And the Clear Yoruba states are Ondo, Ekiti, Lagos, Osun, Oyo, Kwara, Ogun. And we have our people in Kogi-and when we get to the bridge we shall handle the Yoruba borders with Kogi state-okay. So forward onto your republic of SS and SE with your SWEET OIL and count we Yorubas out of your criminal rule. We Yorubas know where we are headed. Your Ijaw president-Goodluck Jonathan- never remembered any Yoruba state for SIX YEARS of his misrule. Now just because Feb 2015 elections are here you suddenly remember Yoruba! Baby, you underestimate a a rich and deep Yoruba Culture and Polity that predate Nigeria and that will move beyond Nigeria. So abegi continue with your SS and SE politics, and your Ijaw campaign for your Ijaw President and leave we Yorubas out of your campaign. It is too too late.

      • Alcindo Satori

        Given that I typically don’t waste time responding to posts as yours, I’ll ask one question. Explain to the world why PDP is ruling Ekiti and Ondo states.

        • segun

          Shut up ! Even you are talking as if you have any qulaitative time outside the time you use to make useless paid for posts on behalf of a drowning person-Goodluck Jonathan. You are Ijaw. Your rigging in Ekiti and Ondo will not happen in 2015. We are ready for you. Take your Ijaw candidate-Goodluck Jonathan- to your creek-okay? You cannot change your slogan which Is FORWARD ONTO REPUBLIC OF SS AND SE -IT IS OUR SWEET OIL IN OUR BACKYARD. You must think Nigerians are dumb when you used these names one year ago-mani_kay and mpitikwelu/peter 2000/akpos1 etc to talk disrepectfully against other Nigerian national groups about the “sweet oil in your backyard” and about how other national groups are very lazy and about how they depend on the sweet oil in your backyard. We all have Looooong memories and we keep these things and we wait for you -your Ijaw candidate -Good Luck Jonathan on behalf of who you launched the most tribalistic campaign in NIgerian history -at the right time. And this is the time to remind you of what you people said one year ago. We will remind you again at the polls in February 2015. When you were advised to STOP the dishonest and a-historical campaign then that the rest of Nigeria depends on your oil since pre-independence Nigeria, you did not stop. You went on and you loved it. Now is the time to remind you. So? We are talking about fundamental issues at the heart of the future of Nigeria here-Ekiti and Ondo are not SS and SE. You have your oyele IN YA BACKYARD. Please take it away. Drink it well well. We Yorubas have taken our decision where we are headed. You can keep on playing if you want. And I am loving your illusion.

          • Alcindo Satori

            As you may have noticed, I don’t go into diatribes when I write. I cannot help but point out the fact that you’ve failed to answer a simple question! Why are ondo and ekiti states under PDP charm? And no diatribes please — I need to sample your knowledge base before venturing further into any discussion.

          • endingNaija

            You are Ijaw campaigning for your Ijaw president-Goodluck Jonathan. So what are you looking for in Yorubaland since you have your “SWEET OIL”? I beg make u dey drink your oyele alone jeje!

          • Alcindo Satori

            … If only you can be intuitive with your comment! I cannot make sense of your gibberish. And since you’ve ventured to save your ‘brother’, maybe you can answer the simple question I posed earlier. And no diatribes please…

          • endingNaija

            Ah my God-“intuitive” for your mouth!!! You are even trying to sound “academic” and “scholarly” Na wa o! Do you know what it means to be intuitive? I beg go drink your oyele Ijaw man campaigning for the unintuitive Ijaw President-Goodluck Jonathan! Una eye go see wen!

          • Alcindo Satori

            Voila! Ignorance personified!! And WAEC complains about failure rate of Nigerians. A simple question cannot be answered and yet this doofus plans on electing a president?

          • endingNaija

            Mister “Intuitive”-you sef dey pretend say yu fit blow grammar-You tink say na ogogoro we dey nak here? Okayone question: Let me ask you just one question: Is President Jonathan an “intuitive” president? Answer before you run to take your drug!

          • Alcindo Satori

            The answer to your question stares you in the face! To further cement your place as a mongrel pup, you elected him as your president. So he dazzled your knuckle brain in the first place to vote for him. Come February 2015, your great great Grand parents shall rise to vote him in again. You must answer my earlier question by the way!

          • endingNaija

            So “Pastor” Goodluck Jonathan Nebu is “intuitive”. Na wa o. Me I no know ooo. Hm our “intuitive President King Jonathan Nebu of Aso Rock Abuja, Nigeria-2009-2015 AD.
            Me I just dey enjoy myself with my Ijaw friend Alcindo Satori.

  • endingNaija

    No sir, President Jonathan. You will be stoned by Nigerians after you leave office for your immunity will be gone from February 2015. And it will be okay to probe your administration after you leave office starting with the deal between you and your woman-Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, your petroleum minister. You will be stoned on the streets for your highly divisive and sectional policies, politics, and politricks, for dividing us on ethnic and religious grounds, for turning basic religious associations such as CAN to your election campaign outfit through cronies such as Ayo Oritsejafor (CAN President) who hold posts in CAN, for taking corruption to a higher heights in Nigeria, for your stark incompetence, for your deception and dishonesty, for lying constantly through both sides of your mouth, for fall in our children’s educational standards such that the children of the poor fail their secondary school certificate examinations in thousands, for failing to secure us from terrorism, for failing to secure our borders, for failing to defend us, for basic subversion of ethics and morals in governance, for causing Nigerians home and in the diaspora constant humiliation and embarrassment; for deepening the level of poverty in the country and for instituting tribalism as an article of governance in Nigeria. For all these reasons you shall be stoned on the streets both symbolically and physically on Nigerian streets. -Amen.

  • Chris1408

    GEJ will forever be remembered as the most corrupt ruler in Nigeria. He’ll be remembered as a president that so many people hope to be a true leader, but failed in every aspect of leadership. He’ll be remembered for the hunger and misery he bestowed upon Nigerians. May his like never be born again in Nigeria

      President Jonathan has statistically and evidently out-performed his last 4 predecessors combined in all sectors of economic development……and considering the mess he inherited he will go down in history as the man who defined a strategic development plan for Nigeria when he lives office in 2019.
      Haters and cynics like you will be shamed !

I agree with @chris1408….May his like never graze our shores ever again in any sane persons life time!!!!

    This president is shameless. Two years ago, he said Nigerians will smile when all his projects come on stream before the end of 2014. Now this is end of 2014, he’s changed the story, it is now after he left office. How wonderful. Vote out this liar and looter. He has destroyed enough.

  • concerned9ja

    This is a fantastic valedictory speech. The handwriting us on the wall. I can assure this clown that history would record him as someone that wasted the opportunity God and people foisted on him. Remember, your chief backer, IBB still suffers condemnatin years after leaving office. So shall your situation be.

  • Uncle Greg

    Mr. Goddluck Jonathan must be daft or befuddled. At any rate, he lacks home training. There are thousands of people in Nigerian society today who are old enough to be his father. It is insulting to talk down to society as comprising people who don’t know what’s good for them. Especially insulting Nigerians for being so ignorant not to know how good Mr. Goodluck Jonathan is. What an insult. Who is this swamp man talking to? It’s not his fault, anyway.

  • tundemash

    what a daft man ! So using online media to criticise is now a negative use. Can this mor0n be reminded we used same online media to criticise Turai when he was molesting him in Aso Rock ? Can this cl0wn be reminded criticism in any form is a necessary component of democracy …… comparing dynamite and online media can only be done by a daft person !!!!!
    Shou!!!!! …. Nigerians .. how did you get it this wrong ???????????????????????????

    • Chris1408

      I’ve been pondering this same question, what did we do wrong to deserve this type of president. He’s truly a punishment on Nigerians

    “Nigeria is almost a failed state where ordinary people’s anger has peaked with potentially lethal consequences. If nothing changes, i cannot guarantee what recourse the people will take. The level of anger has peaked. I don’t rule out Nigeria breaking up. That’s what can happen to a failed state. Nigeria is close to breaking up and its leadership has descended into a theatre of the absurd.

    “It is sad to note that there is an instinctive conclusion among the Nigerian public
    that the Jonathan government is the most financially corrupt, fiscally irresponsible,
    politically insensitive and socially disconnected in Nigerian history. It is all evident
    that (President) Jonathan has failed badly to build a credible, honest and minimally
    effective government for almost half a decade that he has been President.
    This is regrettable indeed”.

            Divide and Rule Tactics will not work this time my brother.

            Where are those boko members caught in Lagos earlier this year?. Ayatollah Tinubu and Fashola should explain their whereabout. Are they hiding them for a showdown with area boys.
            Tinubu was a ‘straggler’ in England, and now a big ‘hustler’ in Nigeria. He doesn’t give a damn whether Yorubas loose their Identity, provided he gets his ‘cut’. They (APC) waited and fought for amnesty for boko haram before declaring their political victory- APC.
            It means–boko haram (military wing of APC)
            APC (political wing of BH)
            Sokoto–GOC Islamic Republic of Nigeria
            Buhari–President Islamic Republic of Nigeria
            Gov. Aliyu–Minister of sharia affairs
            Yerima–founder of sharia and head of amputation committee
            Tinubu–southwest wing commander of Islamic affairs
            Fashola–host member of boko haram political wing.
            100% ownership of SE&SS oil wells–Hausa-fulanis
            MEND branded criminals-Muhammed Junaid to grant them amnesty, relocate them to Yola, Borno.
            This can be real. Abokis are heartless and ruthless. We know them very well.

  • Ekeator

    Dear Mr President /C-in-C of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
    I greet you. I will go straight to my point without taking much of your time. My humble question is, if multiple of tens of soldiers formerly deployed in the north east of Nigeria have now been sentenced to death and over a hundred of them are currently in custody awaiting trial for various alleged offences, who then will do the job? Who will chase after the insurgents? Who will look for and rescue our girls? Who will protect and assure the fleeing locals that their villages are still safe and habitable? Who will do all of these and still offer their lives to defend the integrity of our dear country from insurgency and insurrection? Have you thought about the answers to these simple but mind boggling questions? Have you also thought about how the military will be able to attract new recruits if the force now seems like the fastest route to die young? If you ask me, I would say just pardon them, equip them, motivate them, and then you may redeploy them. It seems to me that’s the only noble path to thread. If they survived boko haram, let them also survive the court martial. Happy new year, in advance, your excellency.

  • antonym

    Mr Jonathan, what do you think about your presidency? Do you think you are making the best of this opportunity you have to preside over the country? I just finished watching the interview you had with CNN whereby you claimed that the common man is happy with the state of electricity supply in the country….from your innermost heart, do you think you are saying the truth? Why not take some time and examine your conscience – It’s never too late to effect some changes- even if you have just a month remaining, try and leave some positive marks behind… Good luck.

  • Adoki Achine

    Mr President, did you say ‘after’ you leave office? Did you not see the 20 million signatures that that contractor, Ifeanyi Uba, collected for you showing how the whole country was praising you? Or maybe the document did not get to you? But I actually saw Madam Diezani collect it and hand over to Mr Anyim Pius who was given the contract to freight it to your house. Or is it that you found that you have been 419ed by that serial 419er?
    Buy the way, if you already know that Nigerians do not yet recognise your good works, how come you are running for election a second time?

  • SAM .A

    Yes ,Chibok girls in Sanbisa forest and their parents will praise thee, the millions of Internally displaced people from 3 States of NE will be on hand at. Otuoke to sing a welcome praise for you , the numerous,federal civil servants who could not get their December salaries will do cultural dance for you at entrance of Otuoke , while the professional mourners like Metu, Adesiyan , Maku,Bastard Okupe , Abati Alapa , will be wailing for the source of their livelihood had been permanently severed and KiriKiri is beckoning unto them. Majority of those you covered up their corruption and you prevented from going to jail will be the first to say they don’t know you,especially the other Four female presidents with whom you co- author this disaster.Infact some of them will swear that ,they voted for Buhari . They undergo Metamorphosis Feburary 14th ,2015 , they were just given those wrong advices but their mind had changed This is the moment the Truth will stare you on the face.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      The Chibok girls were kidnapped by Islamic terrorists of Kanem bornu and Hausa-fulani origins ! They were born and bred in northern Nigeria,they marry northern Nigerians,they worship with Northern Nigerians,they socialise with northern Nigerians.
      Religious violence has been a part of northern Nigerian life since 1914. Nigeria is a secular state but with the adoption of Sharia,these fundamentalist terrorists consider it a sin for a Christian to be their President. This is a hostage situation,their is no text-book method for dealing with Islamic terrorists who behead and kill because they claim Allah has commanded them to do so. President Jonathan did not draft the Koran.
      You are a complete joke to politicise and blame the President for a phenomenon which is considered a global menace as we speak.President Jonathan will defeat Buhari who is a known Islamic fundamentalist because the vast majority of Nigerians will not succumb to the excesses of a religiously and ethnically bigoted desperado who is busy hiding his extremist credentials from the public.

        Replying you Takuando in communicado is doing u a big favor, The CIC allow his 275 children that he sworn to protect to be kidnapped in their beds by rag tag army of BH.

            Tawanda,

            Have you taken your pills today? You seem hyper-active and incoherent. Whats up with that drool from the side of your mouth again? Do you need a bib to help you clean it out?

  • Now that GEJ has accepted that he is long gone, lets do an objective critic of his administration:
    1. GEJ was a victim of circumstances as he never aspired for the role placed on his laps.
    2. He did confess to the US Ambassador on Wiki-leaks that he particularly lacked the experience for such an onerous responsibility.
    3. This made it imperative for him to depend on the advice of people like OBJ who is highly experienced and stood by him during his travail.
    4. The American Government deceived GEJ by advising him to cut off from OBJ to be his own man.OBJ was the most successful President having introduced GSM, Paid our debts,Fought corruption with EFCC, International reputation, fuel availability without subsidy fraud, improved the
    middle-class through massive employment in
    banks,telecoms, oil and gas etc
    5.This was a fatal mistake given that it deprieved GEJ of OBJ’s rich experience and rather exposed him to the likes of Chief Anenih, Tompolo, Alamesigha, Diezani,Patience etc.
    6. This was the foundation of GEJ’s failings.The Northerners hated and feared OBJ too and had earlier advised Yaradua to do likewise because OBJ did trouble the North.Their attempts to deal with him through their fake Sharia failed as he shunned and disgraced them.
    7. Sanusi as a CBN Governor was a failure initially. Sanusis agenda was anti-south and it reflected in his policies that led to the closure of the major banks
    advancing credit to Nigerians in the south.Sanusi was a carry-over from Yaradua and GEJ was not experienced enough to check his excesses.This
    created a lot of unemployment problems nationally.

    SUCCESSES

    GEJ’s Ph.d manifested positively in many areas and he actually achieved a lot in the following areas:
    1. His numerous employment programs –
    Yes,SureP- was done independently and objectively
    2. GEJ applied academic knowledge in many areas of our endeavour like INEC, National Conference, agriculture. Marine, Industrialization policies etc.
    3. GEJ’s economic policies were sound relatively with the arrival of Dr Okonjo Iweala.
    4. The automobile policy, education, ports etc were relatively successful.

    WHERE GEJ FAILED:
    1. GEJ was very Naieve.GEJ is not clueless he is just not streetwise. The removal of Mike Oghiadomhe was a mistake as it exposed him the more.
    2 Diezani caused GEJ over 50% of his problems.GEJ was supposed to have allowed an independent investigation of any alleged missing funds.He needed not protect Diezani just like he did to Oduah.
    3. Submitting his administration to the Ijaw militants like Tompolo and others.
    4. Corruption is at its uppermost.
    5. Lack of experience for decisive actions.
    6. Mass unemployment among the youths.
    7. Spurious media campaigns.
    8. Refusal to carry the whole south along with him.

    In sum can GEJ be saved? Possibly but the time is short but we could help within the short period if approached. This will require sincerity.

    Is Buhari a better candidate? not necessarily because Tinubu has also accumulated wealth illegally n the south west.

    The issue against GEJ is principally Corruption and fund diversion.Nigerians would have helped GEJ to confront the sponsors of BOKO HARAM.

    AM very sad that I shall no longer be voting for my brother GEJ and at the sametime Buhari because I do not trust his brothers who helped bring GEJ down due to his inexperience.

    GEJ would have won 2015 hands down. Yes he can still do it through a practical strategy.

    • FirecloudOFGOD

You have only wasted your time with this treatise.

        Buhari has to go in the dock and explain what happened to our $2.8 billion which vanished on his watch as Petroleum minister.
        Even as the world was remitting stolen funds which Abacha starched away in Foreign lands BUHARI WAS BUSY TELLING NIGERIANS THAT ABACHA WAS NOT A CORRUPT MAN.HE HAS PLEDGED NEVER TO PROSECUTE ALL CORRUPT LEADERS AND POLITICIANS “IF THEY REPENT”.

    When will this man sees himself first as a Nigerian rather than a Bayelsian. He cares about Bayelsian’s getting embarrased when majority of Nigerians are already disappointed and ashamed of you. Mr. Jo-nothing forgot that it was not just the votes of Bayelsa that got him elected in 2011. Ethnic bigot to the core, that is why his caucus is made up of Dokubo, Alamieyeseigha, Tompolo, Oritsejafor and other creek militants. Just as Obasanjo said he later found out, he believes others are his enemies, that the north can keep killing themselves and will never give a damn.

    He forgot that a true leader rules over all, even those who did not vote for him.

    See me see trouble, he now takes social media as one of his enemies, he can not take criticism. Unfortunately Mr. Jona, you can not do anything about it, thats freedom of expression by the people. You can not shut it down or send Marilyn Ogar’s DSS after social media. 47days left to kick your butt Oga Dumbo and safe Nigeria from further embarrassment.

  • zygote

  • Oleku

    Imam Buhari was the brain behind Abacha regime all the time the regime and ever sickly Abacha looted the treasury. Buhari did not show his anti-corruption feat then he was young. Buhari has contested four expensive presidential elections since then. Does Buhari print Naira?

    Now Buhari in his mid 70s thinks he can fight corruption in Nigeria where corruption is bred by the unitary govt system. (Restructure the polity first and watch official corruption fade away.)

    Buhari latter told us that Abacha was not corrupt, same time Buhari charged Muslims to ensure that sharia criminal codes be implemented all over Nigeria.; and after that, Boko Haram appeared and said it is fighting for a sharia-friendly country.

    Buhari has nothing to offer Naija now, he is in the race to retake power for his born to rule class, and if he ever succeeds, no other group in Nigeria may smell Aso Rock in the next 50 years, and even beyond.

    Prof.Ango Abdullahi, a member of Buhari clan recently told us that his clan is capable of retaining power in Nigeria as long as it wants–cheers

          What you refer to as “subsidy scam” was there for years before GEJ came and exposed it and stopped it resulting in prosecution of the culprits.

    Why should we praise the president for being paid so well to do his job? What an insult!

  • Public Records

    “With his trademark trite commentary, President Jonathan’s approach to issues is at best simplistic.
    Where quick thinking is needed to be deployed, backed by the resources available to his offices as
    president and commander-in-chief, he adopts a wait-and-see attitude. In the meantime, the bleeding remains.

    And when President Jonathan eventually rises to act, he institutes some weak idea that only serves as
    a temporary solution. There is rarely any show of brilliance in these decisions anyways.

    At best, again, his decisions and actions are mere shots in the dark. Little research is done
    to ascertain the viability or effectiveness of his actions, beyond some misguided supplication
    to whatever deity he and his supporters serve, that it works. It is why most of the decisions
    made by Jonathan’s government often result in little successes, if any”.

      President Goodluck Jonathan has nothing to recommend him; neither good thinking
      nor moral values – nothing recommends him as president of a country in regression
      on all indices. Those who voted him in framed their choice on sentimental reasons other
      than proven competence. Now they have themselves to blame as Goodluck Jonathan
      un-ravels as the least thinking and worse amoral president Nigeria has ever had.

      President Jonathan made no impact since resuming office four years ago.
      He lacks the animal spirits to effect change. He lacks the moral qualification
      of a non-partaker in the country’s corruption and thefts to move against graft.

      President Jonathan is too much of a status quo man of corruption to be a
      revolutionary thinker for change. He is more like the detritus of Nigeria’s
      decadence than a radical reformer. President Jonathan’s self-afflicted
      chronic indecision renders him an unlikely part of the Nigerian solution.

    • Thepeople

      Do you think the President would understand this statement? It would just go over his head. No capacity to take anything in apart from money.

  • DONJ

    After Abacha,the only other President Nigerians have had a high negative opinion for,and are praying for his departure, is Goodluck Jonathan.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      PT is an opposition website,you can find Jonathan detractors here but they live in their own little cocoon,isolated from the mainstream.
      Buhari will be bulldozed,he will weep like a baby once more !!

      • DONJ

        PT is a freedom of information platform & forum

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Agreed !! but with a bias for the opposition,this is quite normal in any functioning democracy !!

          • endingNaija

            And Vanguard Newspaper, Thisday news paper with a bias for the re-election of Goodluck Jonathan. We are actually aware of the secret donations via all kinds of dubious routes Goodluck Jonathan Campaign machine makes to these two papers-Vanguard and Thisday

      • endingNaija

        And which site has Goodluck Jonathan contractors? Vanguard Newspaper? Just asking Tawanda Oleku Reno Omokri otile the “truth’ deacon akpos1 Doyin Okugbe mani_kay mpitikwelu Gideon Orkar okar-Just a question.

  • Glavda

    Nigeria is going beyond salvage. A family whose relatives behead each other can’t be a family again;
    now or at any time in the future. A president overlooking crimes – like Goodluck Jonathan – and going
    about honoring financial criminals, is going into the trash bin of history. I think for all practical purposes,
    it’s all over for Nigeria. I see with the eyes of my heart and with the discernment of my head,
    that this house; called Nigeria, has fallen.

    • Questioner

      Three Questions For Goodluck Jonathan……..

      • Is it true that you are one of the few worst dullards in Nigerian history
      who spent nine years repeating the same class at doctoral level on the
      flimsy excuse that a particular specimen you needed for biological experiment
      was scarce or not easily available?

      • Is it true that at the end of the day you did not obtain a doctoral degree on the merits,
      as suggested and published by The Economist magazine of London, but that someone
      else ghost-wrote a thesis for you (for a fee) and you then attached Ph.D to your name?

      • Is it true that on the job as President of Nigeria your cash and other assets are over 12 times
      the N295,304,420 million you reluctantly declared in the year 2007; and if yes, where did you
      get the money to acquire those personal assets in excess of your net salary as president, given
      that as a teacher, you could not have earned 295 million Naira to start with by 2007, and also
      given that your declared and current wealth did not come from any inheritance; ancient or modern?

      • Questioner

        ………..Three Questions for General Muhammadu Buhari

        • Is it true that you are one of the few senior military officers in the history of Nigeria
        who failed the Command and Staff College military examination?

        • Is it also true that you failed the Senior Military Examination in the Army?

        • Is it true too that while your military colleagues, such as Ibrahim Babangida,
        Tunde Idiagbon, Theophilus Danjuma, Augustus Aikhomu and Abdulsalami
        Abubakar have military distinction after their names, such as FSS; Psc; or MNI;
        you have no military passes or distinction after yours?

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        Can you explain why GMB failed his exams at the Command and staff College Jaji ?
        Can you explain why he does not have (mni) attached to his name? did he pass Kuru exams?
        Where is the $2.8 billion missing on his watch at the petroleum ministry ?

        Answer me now !!

        • endingNaija

          Can you inform us why President King Goodluck Jonathan Nebu cannot probe his woman in the petroleum industry-Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke?

    • endingNaija

      This is what happens when a nation’s President- President Jonathan -goes to a part of the country such as Yorubaland-and create the garbage division called “Yoruba Christian/Muslim”. See what I mean? This is what happens when a party -such as PDP- and a presidential candidate such as Goodluck Jonathan promotes it self dubiously as the “christian” party and promotes himself as the “christian” presidential “candidate”. When you do that as the PDP and President Jonathan and his campaigners have done, you wreck the soul of the nation, terminate it and inter (i.e.) bury it. This is the unworthy legacy of President Goodluck Ebelo Jonathan.

  • warry

    For all those opposing pres Gej,what I can figure out as his crime is ,there is corruption in the country. Does our law say a president should determine people to be jailed for corruption that he refused? On insurgency, apart from mobilizing all the resources available to the country to tackle it as he is currently doing, what more do they suggest he does?

    • endingNaija

      One of those found guilty is Goodluck Jonathan’s woman-Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke. But Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke is Goodluck Jonathan’s thieveing and stealing purse. So he cannot even probe her. For Jonathan to probe Diezani Alison Madueke is for Jonathan to probe himself. You see what I mean warry boy?

      • warry

        You can sue her if you have the facts as you are insinuating

        • endingNaija

          Diezani Alison Madueke’s man-President Goodluck Jonathan has the paid duty to do probe corrupt people like Diezani- as our President. But President Jonathan cannot probe her woman-Diezani Alison Madueke since she is Goodluck Jonathan’s woman and his stealing and thieving purse. See what I mean warry boy? Small boy you need to learn how to respect your elders in public-okay? I know someone sent you here. Go back to your employers and tell them you are incapable because your employers in Aso Rock are irredeemable.

          • warry

            You ought to know that you have the right to prosecute anybody who runs foul of the law. You didn’t say which law that says only presidents can prosecute corruption, but chose to insult me.

          • endingNaija

            Warry boy, Nigerians HIRED and PAID President Jonathan to give us good governance based on good ETHICS. President Jonathan FAILED to deliver. For example, he cannot prosecute his woman Ms. Diezani Alison Madueke because she is his woman and his stealing and thieving purse. Enough! Jonathan has to leave.

    • Olatunde Arowolo

      YOU ARE BIG DUMP!!!!!!!

  • Now that GEJ has accepted that he is long gone, lets do an objective critic of his administration:
    1. GEJ was a victim of circumstances as he never aspired for the role placed on his laps.
    2. He did confess to the US Ambassador on Wiki-leaks that he particularly lacked the experience for such an onerous responsibility.
    3. This made it imperative for him to depend on the advice of people like OBJ who is highly experienced and stood by him during his travail.
    4. The American Government deceived GEJ by advising him to cut off from OBJ to be his own man.OBJ was the most successful President having introduced GSM, Paid our debts,Fought corruption with EFCC, International reputation, fuel availability without subsidy fraud, improved the
    middle-class through massive employment in
    banks,telecoms, oil and gas etc
    5.This was a fatal mistake given that it deprieved GEJ of OBJ’s rich experience and rather exposed him to the likes of Chief Anenih, Tompolo, Alamesigha, Diezani,Patience etc.
    6. This was the foundation of GEJ’s failings.The Northerners hated and feared OBJ too and had earlier advised Yaradua to do likewise because OBJ did trouble the North.Their attempts to deal with him through their fake Sharia failed as he shunned and disgraced them.
    7. Sanusi as a CBN Governor was a failure initially. Sanusis agenda was anti-south and it reflected in his policies that led to the closure of the major banks
    advancing credit to Nigerians in the south.Sanusi was a carry-over from Yaradua and GEJ was not experienced enough to check his excesses.This
    created a lot of unemployment problems nationally.

    SUCCESSES

    GEJ’s Ph.d manifested positively in many areas and he actually achieved a lot in the following areas:
    1. His numerous employment programs –
    Yes,SureP- was done independently and objectively
    2. GEJ applied academic knowledge in many areas of our endeavour like INEC, National Conference, agriculture. Marine, Industrialization policies etc.
    3. GEJ’s economic policies were sound relatively with the arrival of Dr Okonjo Iweala.
    4. The automobile policy, education, ports etc were relatively successful.

    WHERE GEJ FAILED:
    1. GEJ was very Naieve.GEJ is not clueless he is just not streetwise. The removal of Mike Oghiadomhe was a mistake as it exposed him the more.
    2 Diezani caused GEJ over 50% of his problems.GEJ was supposed to have allowed an independent investigation of any alleged missing funds.He needed not protect Diezani just like he did to Oduah.
    3. Submitting his administration to the Ijaw militants like Tompolo and others.
    4. Corruption is at its uppermost.
    5. Lack of experience for decisive actions.
    6. Mass unemployment among the youths.
    7. Spurious media campaigns.
    8. Refusal to carry the whole south along with him.

    In sum can GEJ be saved? Possibly but the time is short but we could help within the short period if approached. This will require sincerity.

    Is Buhari a better candidate? not necessarily because Tinubu has also accumulated wealth illegally n the south west.

    The issue against GEJ is principally Corruption and fund diversion.Nigerians would have helped GEJ to confront the sponsors of BOKO HARAM.

    AM very sad that I shall no longer be voting for my brother GEJ and at the sametime Buhari because I do not trust his brothers who helped bring GEJ down due to his inexperience.

    GEJ would have won 2015 hands down. Yes he can still do it through a practical strategy.

  • Galare I. N

    Watching Mr President last night on tv, it sounds like a valedictory speech. His body language gave him up as someone who has lost the zest to continue.

    • endingNaija

      His corruption has overwhelmed him-that is why. His corrupt body is so weak, he can no longer think or move his feet. President King Goodluck Jonathan Nebu not only look defeated, he is actually defeated and he has accepted defeat. Sadly his footsoldiers e-rats (otile/oleku/Tawanda/akpos1/deacon/Reno Omokri/Gideon Orkar/the “truth” )are yet to accept. They are still fighting a lost battle. Anyway this is normal. You know the last time Ghadaffi fell in Libya, his snipers were still in the gutters on the streets firing blind shots unaware that their Commander in Chief WAS GONE! It is the same with President King Goodluck Jonathan Nebu and his e-rats! Very soon the e-rats will see the sign of Change. We hope they will not re-new their terrorism from the creeks as Tompolo and Dokubo have more than SIX WARSHIPS from the money passed to them by King Jona Nebu. We are watching.

  • favourtalk

    We are happy to tell you that nigerians won’t miss you at all, we need a change and transformation is a better volume for the nation now or fake propaganda been shared around by PDP.

    Mr President we wish you a safe trip back home in May 2015. Nigerians will forever remember your rule for the following milestones : The are the only regime that adopted corruption and called it stealing as if stealing is not an offence. You deliberately refuse to investigate all the allegations of misconducts of your petroleum minister,
    Your government is the first to divide our country along the divides of religion and ethnicity openly.
    GEJ government is also the first to demoralise our troops at the war front.
    Your regime will always be remembered as the first to supervised an insurgency killing Nigerians just to cause religious divides in the land for the sake of your re-election selfish end.
    Nigerians will forever remember you as the first leader to renege on agreements, wheither signed or otherwise.
    Your government is the first to ignor the calls to rescue our chibok girls.
    Your government is the only regime that said they knew the whereabouts of our Chibok girls and refuses to release the girls
    You are the first Nigerian leader known not bother about a section of the country on fire, just because you feel they will not vote for you whenever you decide to recontest.
    You are the first Nigerian leader under whose supervision our armoury was made available to the insurgents.
    You are the only government that went to dance few hours after scores of Nigerians were killed by your insurgents.
    Your predecessor declared his asset and you decided not to follow suit because you are too transparent.
    Mr.President we wish you well as you arrive otuoke.

    Its good we have the freedom of speech online. We should always use it. Remember those sins we retain ,are retained. Hail GEJ. He collapsed the conservative Political structure of the PDP, Allowed the APC to thrive and for the first time, ministers are free to move from PDP to the opposition without issues. And are not sent or mandated to their states to deliver it. We are enjoying freedom of politics. We have never had DSS or the Police chasing online users. We are enjoying some freedom to practice politics with great freedom of speech. Let’s cherish it.Let’s vote for GMB or GEJ , but respect who brought us this far. GEJ. God bless Nigeria. Happy 2015.

    • prettyriversgirl

      for real. an induvidual given what is happening in Nigeria, u were still able to make that comment. politicians and their cronnies can say anything in a bid to sway public opinion and votes in their favour, but when regular people like us that do not benefit from their activities support them… no wonder this country is getting worse everyday

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    In Mr Ebele Jonathan’s dream would Nigerians praise him except fools,looters,thieves and fuel-subsidy scammers would ever praise president Ebele Jonathan after he leaves office as there is no tangible achievement in security sector,no regular power despite the huge public funds invested,our teaching hospitals are archaic state like mere consulting clinics as Mr Jonathan and his wife frequently travel to Germany to obtain adequate medical care on Nigeria tax payers expense,there is no employment generation initiative establish by Nigeria Federal ministry of employment and productivity to assist our graduates and training of our youth,Stability is lacking in Nigeria,Ebele Jonathan turns South/East against South-West/Hausa/Fulani-Northerners.
    What would Nigerians ever praise Mr Ebele Jonathan for?For the ineffective governance or aiding massive corruption practices like fuel-subsidy scam,naira devaluation,import-waver scam and missing public oil revenue of S20 billion dollars?

    • SUNNIYKE4

  • Rommel

    Meanwhile,he has rewarded himself with GCFR and still does not expect praises while in office,what other praise does he require when he has B’stard Doyin Okupe singing his praises from morning till night? how would he not expect Nigerians to praise him when he leaves office when all the crude oil money that was made during his tenure was siphoned by him and his cronies just like IBB whom he called his father recently did?,Nigerians will sing his praise while waiting for him to drop some of that money for the teeming hungry mouths he created,why won’t they sing his praises,seeing the amount of blood him and his people have been sharing in bornu while won’t they sing his praises?
