    Dumbo doing his damnedest to pauperise the fiscus. What is going on with this man ? A private visit for what? Another foreign exchange wasted on a trip to nowhere. How many times has any world head of state make a private visit to Nigeria ? Zilch. A president that should be brainstorming on how to make the lives of the people that voted him into power, bearable and stress free, is more interested in selfish escapade and frivolous journey of no consequence. This man is really clueless , what a waste of taxpayers hard earned cash . Dumbo you are the weakest link bye bye!

      How can a man without brain brainstorm?

      • umolu

        Yes, you first have to have a brain to brainstorm.A new administration with a new legislature will need a new law that prohibits public office holders from traveling abroad for medical care. If they cannot build the kind of hospital they go to in Germany, Britain or South Africa in Nigeria, then they should die here. A situation where the big thieves in the name of former leaders like Obasanjo and Babangida continue to add to their longevity at the expense of hard working Nigerians is absurd. We were all born in Nigeria, make Nigeria liveable or die in it.
        You want a high quality health care put one here or die here. A lot of these so called foreign hospitals give them fourth class treatment and charge them four times the bill.Why? Because they know they have no insurance in their country and they also know they have come with stolen money so what the heck! What a shame putting yourself on the operating table for a bunch of skinheads who don’t want to see you in the first place other than your money.

  • Comfortkay

    Read my lips the people that will follow the President to United Kingdom will be more that 20 .
    All at the cost of Nigeria.

  • Chris1408

    Few hours trip to UK at the expense of Nigerians. Life is good in Aso Rock.

  • endingNaija

    What is he going to do in London? What is the “private” visit about? If it is a “private” visit then who is paying for the “private” visit? Is the money coming from our common resources or it is coming from the “private” money of President Jonathan?

  • Wähala

    If it’s a private visit, why did he fly in our Presidential jet instead of catching regular flight? What are the principal staff ati aides doing on his private one-day trip? Thief. He probably decided to launder the money by himself this time, that’s their favorite destination anyway. The moron most likely went for a quick medical check-up is my bet, running to Germany may raise eyebrows so the UK is a good conduit where his German doctors can quickly rush over to drain excess ogogoro from his brain cavity. Disgracing Nigeria in pyjamas and Harry Porter hat, what’s wrong with changing clothes for once in 6yrs biko? Oloshi. Always wasteful with our money… where’s the NNPC forensic report his Govt. promised us before the end of this year? That’s the question of the week until we get an answer or assume the worst. Drunkard.

    • Sensible Nigerian

      Lool I sabi jor

  • Tunde

    If this was a private visit, why is it being broadcast? Why does he need principal aides? What kind of insensitive and brainless human being is this guy? Chibok girls are still missing and he’s swarming around the globe on “private” visits?
    God help us ooooo.

  • warry

    Most of us are truly ignorant.

  • Guguru

    As long as he can keep stealing oil dollars, he does not care of you hang yourself in front of Aso Rock.

  • Kwango

    This president and wastage of public funds. One day trip with principal aides?

  • olotito

    We gave our mandate becos he appealed to our emotion “I v no shoe” thinking he had similar poor background.
    He promised security but we are not secured. His administration glorifies corruption more than any previous administration. $20b dollars missing, Stella Oduah cars controversy remained hidden.
    This govt had succeeded in polarised Nigeria along religion n ethnic line. Under his administration 7 is
    more than 19 in Ekiti n 16 more than 19 yet he
    claimed he had no hand in all. He promised
    electricity but we are still in dark. Chibok gels
    can’t b trace n reunited with their families. Yet he wants another term when he wasn’t able to deliver d dividends he promised. Are we going back to our Egypt…..? Are we going to b afflicted d second time? Do we deserve ds clueless…… Not again!
