I’ve fulfilled my promises to Nigerians – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan, on Tuesday, said he has delivered on the promises he made to Nigerians four years ago as he declared to seek a new term.

Speaking at the Eagles Square, Abuja, Mr. Jonathan assured that Nigeria will not go back in its old ways, but move to greater heights, if he was elected.

He also promised not to intimidate any Nigerian, but ensure the rule of law, expand the democratic space, give voice to the voiceless and uphold the weak.

Mr. Jonathan was adopted by all the organs of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in September as the party’s lone candidate in the February 14 presidential contest.

He assumed office as president on May 6, 2010, following the death of late President Umaru Yar’Adua and was elected in 2011 to the position.

The president rounds off his current tenure on May 29, 2015.

At the Eagles Square, Abuja, Mr. Jonathan told his supporters from the 36 states of the federation that he accepted to contest the coming presidential poll after seeking the face of God, held wide consultations and made deep reflection on the matter with his family.

Mr. Jonathan recounted his administration’s achievements since it came to office, saying infrastructure had been its major area of focus.

He listed some major achievements in critical sectors such as the water, agricultural, transport, road, housing, oil and gas, health, education, food production, anti-corruption crusade, youth development, military, entertainment, economy and electoral reforms.

He also praised his administration for the giant strides it made on the international scene.

“We have advanced our regional, continental and global objectives,” he said. “I am convinced that I have kept my pact with Nigerians, and it is now time to look to the future. With your tremendous support, we have collectively done so much in the last three and half years, but to take our country to the next level, there is still more to be done.

“History has shown that the path of honour for any true leader is not to walk away from his people in moments of challenges. We must stand together in adversity and overcome all threats to our development. We must defend our future, for the sake of our children.”

The president, who called for a minute silence in honour of the students of the Government Science Secondary School in Yobe State on Monday, however, lamented the lingering security challenge in the country, which he said had led to the loss of lives and property.

He said, “Clearly, this has cast a dark cloud on our Nation but we will surely win the war against terror. A number of young men and women have been kidnapped by these criminal elements including our daughters from Chibok. We will free our daughters and defeat terrorism.

“We are equipping the armed forces and deploying special forces to engage the terrorist and end this senseless war. We must protect our country. We must save our people. I will do everything humanly possible to end this criminal violence in our nation.”

Mr. Jonathan explained that to ensure the long term stability and development of the affected areas, government had launched three programmes, namely the Presidential Initiative for the North East, the Victim Support Fund and the Safe School Initiative.

He expressed gratitude “to all Nigerians for standing with me.”

The president said in furtherance of a peaceful, participatory and inclusive democracy that he signed the Freedom of Information, FoI, Bill into law, to expand the frontiers of the fundamental rights of Nigerians.

He affirmed that under his presidency, “your views, no matter how freely expressed, will not send you to prison or into exile.”

He said the support by the party would enable him continue the conversation of development he began in the country.

Stating that democracy was a collective action, energized by individual responsibility, Mr. Jonathan said the mandate that would be given to him this time would inspire in him the strength to complete the good work his administration had begun.

He said he would ensure that the poor is lifted out of the depth of want and place their feet on the ladder of prosperity.

While noting that leaders must always show temperance at all times, the president promised “That is a virtue, one which I treasure, and will always uphold.”

On the coming election, Mr. Jonathan, who thanked those who contributed their meagre resources towards his re-election bid, appealed to his supporters not to harm, maim or kill or incite any kind of violence.

He reiterated that his election bid does not worth the blood of any Nigerian.

“We must forget our common bond, one people from the womb of one Nigeria. Again I say: My ambition to serve you is not worth the blood of any Nigeria. I remain committed to this principle of non-violence,” he said.

The president said he would be ready to continue in service to the people if they believed that a country that works for everybody must be built, where the strong lift up the weak, and not trample upon them, where the vote of every citizen determines who governs or represents them, and where democratic space is open to all citizens, irrespective of their aspirations and circumstances of birth.

He said the country would not return to its dark days, but must move forward.

He told the crowd, “Do you want to go back to the old ways? We cannot go back to the old ways where individual freedoms were trampled upon and citizens were locked up for expressing their views or criticising government.

“Do you want to go back to the old ways? We cannot go back to the old ways! We must continue to have free and fair elections. We cannot go back to the era where ballot box snatching and stuffing became the norm, where your votes never counted.

“Certainly, we cannot! We have to move forward! Only forward!!, my dear people, forward!!!

The president said in moving forward, “I see a Nigeria that thirsts for progress with children across the nation, eager for knowledge and safely in schools!

“I see a Nigeria where all who have taken up arms, would again embrace peace! I see a Nigeria where our women can aspire to any heights, without hindrance! I see a Nigeria where the flames in the Eagles will rekindle, and the Falcons soaring higher in victory!

Mr. Jonathan also stated that he sees a Nigeria “where the children of Mustapha, and Christopher, Ade and Ada, Timi and Bunmi, Nnamdi and Namadi, do not go hungry!

“I see a Nigeria where all, no matter their beliefs, live in peace and harmony!

“I see a Nigeria where the green passport is accorded a royal reception the world over!

“I see a Nigeria where one day the next generation will take us to outer space.”

Both the vice president, Namadi Sambo and the Senate President, David Mark, also delivered speeches at the event. Mr. Mark spoke on behalf of the PDP members of the National Assembly, who pledge support for the president for having performed well since he assumed office.

The Senate President lamented the security challenge in the country, but assured that it was not insurmountable.

Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State, who spoke on behalf of the PDP governors, said the governors were solidly behind the president.

Solidarity messages were also delivered on zonal basis by a former Minister of Environment, Hassan Adamu, North East; former governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Bafarawa, North West; former Information Minister, Jerry Gana, North Central; former military governor of the old Ondo State, Bode George, South West; former governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, South South; and former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, South East.

    I used to be a patriotic Nigerian. In fact, I used to be more patriotic than Patriotism. I used t believe in Nigeria and was very unfortunately ready and willing to die for Nigeria. But a singular historic event changed all that. It was Musa’s terminal ailment and the attendant embarrassment meted out to Great Jona in the months after. On one of such occasions in New York, a CNN reporterasked him how his Boss was doing and the Fisherman Vice President replied that he has not been allowed to see his president and so could not give any situation report. How embarrassing! Just because he is a Southern Niger Deltan…and I was almost moved to tears, but forthe fact that in my Niger Delta Republic, men don’t cry. The embarrassing treatment given to Great Jona wouldn’t happen anywhere else. Not even in Libya
    or Ukraine. But Great Jona ENDURED!

    So, all my patriotism disappeared and my 100% allegiance shifted. I quickly dried up my tears but From that day, I ceased to be a Nigerian but a citizen of the South South Republic. May the Almighty God in His infinite wisdom cause Nigeria to disintegrate like yesterday. Amen? AMEN!

  • Chris1408

    Now we know GEJ is delusional, talking about he delivered his promise. Which one?

    • the truth

      All we need to do now is to judge him on his performance. How was the country when he took office? if jonathan has improved our major roads, completed dams, for the first time in nigerian history 16 new federal universities were built which means every state has a federal university, agriculture at its peak prior to 1971, our import rate dropped while the export increased then give him four more years. But if he has increased corruption and insecurity is at its peak then you may vote against him. Its up to all of us to decide by voting

      • Chris1408

        True. Let the voters decide. Based on performance and state of the country. No rigging or wuru wuru. No manipulation using federal might. Level playing field for all. May the best candidate win

      • Tonnero

        As usual, you are even more delusional than your principal. A few indices:

        – when GEJ came, the country had a surplus of $67b and zero debt. Today, the surplus has shrunk to less than $40b and $10b debt. This is after 8 additional years of high oil prices!
        – when GEJ came, Boko Haram was bombing police stations. Today, more than 15000 Nigerians have been killed and counting
        – when GEJ came, Farida Waziri was EFCC chief and the place was comatose. Now GEJ has completely buried the EFCC
        – When GEJ came, oil production was circa 2.5 MMbbls/d, OKLNG and Brass LNG were on the table. Today, oil production has dropped to less than 2.0 MMbbls/d, oil stealing has increased and Multinationals are selling their assets
        – When GEJ came, states were paying salaries in a timely fashion. Today, most states are unable to pay salaries because the FGN is playing games with oil revenues.
        – When GEJ came, the economy had been expanded with the creation of new sectors. Local upstream operators, HMOs, Pension funds, GSM operators, the bond market etc. Today, GEJ has not created one single one and those created are being destroyed.
        – When GEJcame, the CBN Act of 2007 was respected. Even Yar’Adua could not remove Soludo despite his dislike for the man. Today, GEJ has set the precedence of “suspending” a serving CBN governor if you do not like his face.
        – When GEJ came, democracy had a chance. There were no sole candidates. Today, GEJ has bribed and intimidated party members to “beg” him to contest as sole candidate in the very best traditions of Sanni Abacha
        -When GEJ came, Asari Dokubo was in jail. Today, all the militants are his chief advisors.
        – When GEJ came, we still gave a damn about declaring assets. I can go on and on……….

        • Tunsj

          Nothing is left for me to add, you said it all.

      • Wähala

        You can’t judge him by his performance and still answer, “the truth”…truly speaking!

        • the truth

          it is better you address this evidence to pro jonathan supporters. I have never told you i would vote for pdp or apc. My body language should tell you i am neutral to the core. I could be likened to an impartial inec. For me anybody who can bring nigeria to paradise, that is my man. I am for the common man who wants 3 square meals.

          • tundemash

            You f00l no one Mr. fake neutral. If indeed you are neutral, you ought to get the fact in the statement Dumbo made about him having fulfilled the promises he made to Nigerians. If indeed you areneutral, you wouldn’t be attacking anyone who tries to point out the failure in GEJ’s govt like you did to @Chris1048 just above this post. I have published you the election promises…. judge yourself as you wanted us to judge him on his performance….. mr. inec man .

            @tonnero has also provided you with more data below. You are a damn coward not bold enough to own up to your activities but trying to canvass for votes for your Dumbo !!! By the grace f God, Nigerianshall be ebele-free 2015.

            @deji has pasted the video proof of election rigging for Dumbo in 2011 here severally and yet you want 4 more years for him. Olodo !

          • the truth

            It is highly pertinent that you always stand for the truth and not cheap blackmail,abuses and accusations which u can’t substantiate.please show me where I attacked chris with my statements? U are intentionally lying to score cheap likes.

          • tundemash

            Chris1408 said “True, but GEJ had his time and couldn’t deliver any of the things you mentioned, instead he made it worse. Time to try someone else till we get it right.”

            And quickly you jumped in defence of your sponsors claiming “you just have one vote mr chris 1408 and there are millions of people who may disagree with you. we have to respect their views too. After all nigeria belongs to all of us”

            Where in Chris1408 submission did he insinuate he has more than one vote or did he disrespect other peoples’ view but you were overzealous in quickly doing your copy & paste e-rat job and yet claiming neutralilty.

            Meanwhile ….. do not digress …. let us discuss Dumbo’s performance tou have been sent here to trumpet !!!! I have pasted you his 20111 election promises with dates and location …. give us an update on those performances PLEASE !!!

        Mr. fake Neutral….. hope you won’t dodge from this as usual !

      • tundemash

        Below are excerpts from Dumbo’s 2011 election campaigns ….. give us an update, Mr. fake Neutral, so we can judge him on his performance as you said …….

        In Aba on February 12, he promised to stamp out kidnapping; provide facilities that would boost the enterprising spirit of the Igbo; upgrade the Enugu airport to international level; dredge the River Niger; build a dry port in Aba for Igbo businessmen; complete the Second Niger Bridge; rehabilitate all the main roads into Abia; tackle the erosion crisis; and make Aba the Ground Zero of eventual aircraft production in Nigeria.

        In Uyo on March 7, he promised to build coastal roads and rail from Lagos to Calabar.

        In Awka on Feb 26, he said he would construct all the major roads which link Anambra with its neighbors; complete the ongoing aero-dynamic survey of gas in the Anambra River basin, which [leading to] power supply, then Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry”; complete the second Niger Bridge; and complete the Onitsha Inland Port. Nigerians would not be talking about generators after his four years in office, he vowed.

        Revive ailing oil refineries and build new ones (Abeokuta, March 12)

        • Collaborate with state governments to explore the solid minerals sector (Gusau, March 15);

        • Spend N350 billion in building small dams across the North in the next four years to stimulate “massive irrigational farms” (Northern Economic Summit, Kaduna, March 19);

        • Expand and develop the downstream sector of the oil and gas industry to provide about one million jobs (one-man presidential “debate,” March 31, Abuja);

    Mr Jonathan the real voters will pass judgement on you come February 2015. Insecurity is an area that needs to be tackled.Most Nigerians would agree with me we need peace, unity, good governance, good jobs, continuity, free and fair election, shelter and peace of mind. Nigeria decides February.

    See What APC Is Doing To PDP Already – By Ugonnabo Ngwu

    APC and PDP

    Like Olusegun Obasanjo, I dey laff o! If I were to be All Progressives Congress, APC, I would be having a hearty laugh. On a thought, I would be having a measured laughter for the realists would not hesitate to remind me that it is not yet uhuru. Why all this talk about laughter, you may want to ask. It is because the under-rated APC has sparked a tsunami in the over-rated Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP. So much so that the supposed underdog has boxed the top dog into a tight corner to the extent that it is now seriously grasping for a breather. You can agree with me that no match up thrills viewers like the one which springs up surprises such as this. I have no aorta of doubt that the road to next year’s general election is a sort for the blockbusters.

    All of a sudden, news filtered in that the PDP has rescheduled the dates for its primary elections and national convention. Of particular interest is the party’s shifting of its House of Representatives’ primaries from November 22 to December 6 in a pedestrian move to circumvent the supposed intention of Reps members in adjourning sitting to December 3. The Speaker of the green chamber had announced his defection to the APC just after he declared the adjournment of plenary. The PDP having mulled all politricks to reconvene the House without coming up with any bankable one resorted to readjusting its dates for primary elections as a way of checkmating the unpredictable lawmakers.

    Stripped of every technicalities what this simply means is that the PDP is scared-stiff of what the alternative platform provided by the APC can do to it. It brings to the fore the fact that the PDP is losing sleep over the activities of the APC. Alas, the wind has blown frittering away the mystery that had shrouded the anus of the fowl.

    So, in the face of all its braggadocio and brave face, PDP is mortally afraid of the APC to the extent that it is wetting its panties.

    PDP can go ahead and tell us that it is not because of the antics of the APC that they rescheduled the dates for their primaries and national convention. We have no problem with that. We never expected them to tell us anything to the contrary. I had expected PDP to heed the billion-dollar advice freely given them by the master essayist, Femi Adesina, who in his latest column counselled that it was time for the party to quit fighting the bloodying of their nose by the House of Reps Speaker, AminuTambuwal, let me add: even though he fractured their limb in the process. But like the proverbial dog whose self-destructive preoccupation would not allow it heed its masters’ whistle, PDP have chosen to fight on making APC to win in a way.

    If only APC would agree, I would have told them that they should no longer worry about winning the 2015 presidential poll. What they had already done to the PDP is big enough a feat to be proud of. They should beat their chest for being able to have stricken the fear of God into the PDP. To the extent they are now running with their tail between their legs like a dog that just sighted a wolf.

    I find it hard imagining that the wolf in this case is the APC of yesterday. A party formed barely a year ago is now conveniently instilling so much hysteria in a (mis)ruling party that has been on the saddle for over 15 years. Spot on was the mind which patented the saying: wonders shall never cease! Right from time immemorial up to this present aeon of Jonathan, Buhari, Sambo, Tambuwal, Muazu, Tinubu and their co-travellers, wonders have refused to abate.

    Yet, the self-acclaimed ‘largest party in black and white Africa’ closed its eyes to this verity when it declared that we should be ready to put up with its shenanigans for the next 60 years. They made this statement in defiance of the usual accidental spring up of wonders. Now itself has become the wonder, although, it is on the wrong side of it. Unfortunately my supply of empathy is diminished right now.

    Dear APC, I have one favour to ask of you for according you this unmerited love. Unmerited because the fact that you appropriate unto yourself the title of progressives does not make you any different from the unapologetic conservatives PDP is stuffed with, for at the end of the day you all worship in the same shrine. Like I was saying, my adopted APC, the favour I demand of you is simply to hand Tambuwal your ticket for next year’s presidential election. That is one move that will better bring out the timidity of PDP and further expose how vulnerable the party is. Moreover, you can be sure he is one politician who can bring thunder to the all-important election.

    However, if you trust the peoples’ General enough to do just a term after which he would hand over to a much younger Nigerian. Give him the ticket but after four years let that Nigerian be Tambuwal. I suppose by them he would have upped his capacity for the plume job with the experience he would have garnered from steering the ship of Sokoto State.

    Let it not matter that a bloody south easterner like me is the one advocating this arrangement. What should matter to every true Nigerian is what is best for our beloved but over-raped country. Before you call me a traitor, remember that we have had presidents who all through their stay in office never gave a hoot about when they came from. This piece began with Obasanjo, hence it’s not out of place for it to have ended with the same character.

        Will you say same thing if by accident of choice the office is occupied by a mad man? The occupier of the office has to lead by example. He has to respect the office and not bring it to disrepute. It is only after that, the citizen can respect the office. You can’t come out stained with mud and asked not to be touched with muddy hands. We just want to rip the benefit without paying the price.

    But President Jonathan did not promise NIgerians anything because he does not care. So? Why is he saying he has delivered on his promises? How can you deliver promises you never made because in the first place you do not care?

  • Tunsj

    I’m sure that this guy is joking when he stated that he delivered on his promises he made to Nigerians. He thinks that Nigerians are fools and they will always vote against their interests.

    • tundemash

          I’ve just read the entire comments to see what Tundemash has said in response to all your swift ill-mannered riposte directed at him. To my utter amazement, Tunde says absolutely nothing in response to you. And given how many times you’ve said something to him, his consistent silence can only mean that he either doesn’t notice you or is ignoring you. if someone has ignored you for this long and you still ramble on at him or her, it raises many questions about your judgement.

          You see, I discovered something many years ago. When you hate somebody, it is often shocking to see how that person takes control over you without actually seeing you or spending their precious time on you. You will spend hours, days, weeks, and months talking, discusing and thinking about that person. By contrast, that person is busy doing something else very meaningful with his or her life and does not even pause for a moment to remember you. Overall, you lose several times without having a contest. Hahahaha! You lose time, you lose happiness, you lose respect, you lose self-worth, you lose your mind, you lose importance, you lose concentration, you lose energy and you lose weight too; all for someone who doesn’t even spend a second to remember that you are losing all these things because of him or her. Hahahahaha!

          Tunde is controling you through your hatred for him. So who is the fuul and loser here? I’m sure you will say it’s Tunde, which raises many questions about your thought processes and explains why you haven’t thought about all the things I’ve just told you now. I can only hope you’ve just learned something, not from me but from life. I can’t teach anyone, as I am still also a student (or a learner, as Nigerians would say).

          One more thing, when you guys are sent online to come and sale Jonathan’s candidacy, the mission is not likely to succeed by engaging everyone with rancour and attacks. It ends up making you all to look quite desperate, alinenates the rest of us from you, and therefore undermines your message. But that is the pattern Jonathan has adopted in the last five years, which partly explains his growing unpopularity and discredit, despite the fact that he has got some things quite right. You see, when a President dances merilly in Kano over the corpses of more than 150 people killed in Abuja just within hours before his dance party in Kano, the right way to support such a President is not to come out and attack those who are rightly angry. When a very medium-sized army from a developing country spends $33b in just 4 years of not being in any war, and yet doesn’t seem to have enough bullets, armour, and welfare for its soldiers, and the president refuses to open an independent inquiry into what happened to the funds, you can’t successfully convince or convert the critics of that abracadrabra governance by simply dismissing their concerns and demanding that they should sheepishly support such a leader.
          That is common sense, isn’t it? Which makes me wonder why common sense is an ostentatious commodity for the pro-Jonathan crowd. The thing is, not all of us are brainless. Quite many of us are have still got our faculties and are still “very brainful” (if you permit me to speak like our not-so-permanent Secretary, Patience).

        • Okemute1

          This your hopeless tactics of not put forward and sensible reason as to why GEJ is worth a vote but instead behaving like something that came out of the wrong end of the human anatomy will not work. I see you as a waste of sperm, comfortable in suffering, I’ll educated and probably brought up by a thug and the only way of life you know is thuggery.

    • Mao

      Most Nigerians are fools. That’s why he has the audacity to seek for re-election.

      • Tunsj

        Well put! GEJ might even distribute bags of rice to them for their votes. A lot of Nigerians are timid and they will fall for anything. Poverty is a disease.

  • Thepeople

    The joker and the fools, that is the story of Nigeria.

  • Bambam

    JonaTAN is just a mere waste of space..he would be shown the way out in 2015 by Buhari..Its time to emancipate Nigeria from satanic bondage in the hands of PDP!!

    • Alcindo Satori

      • Bambam

        What an unintelligent and silly comment by you..rubbish!!

        • Alcindo Satori

          …and you sound very smart in the process.

          • Okemute1

            Actually smart than GEJ and PDP BOT put together.

        • Usman

          he smoke weed

      • Okemute1

        In Lafia, Nasarawa State on 7th February 2011 at the North Central Zone launching of his campaign, Jonathan promised to end chronic power shortages; improve health and education; ensure food self-sufficiency; manage oil revenues better; create a Sovereign Wealth Fund. He would also clampdown on kidnappers and criminals; pursue law breakers to the ends of the Earth, and ensure there would be no sacred cows. He guaranteed a university in every state; proper care for communities along the water ways; and construction of a refinery.

    • Ide4u

      The clown only transformed himself, his family, friends and cronies. What a curse to Nigeria!!

  • Concerned citizen

    There is a wise saying that, anyone without shame, is dangerous. Please let’s vote out PDP before they do irreparable harm to this country.

  • Allayes

    Everyone should endeavour to get registered and collect a voters card. Do NOT take no for an answer from INEC. Do not wait until election day to lament that you were disenfranchised because your name was not on the voters register or you were not able to register. Squeeze that extra time from that busy schedule of yours and pound on INEC’s door until you are answered. If you have attained voting age, INEC has no choice but to register you.

    If you are eligible to vote and you do not on election day, then do not complain about whomever gets elected, because by your failing to vote, you DID actually help to elect that individual. Also if your name is on the register and you fail to vote on election day, know that someone else will vote in your name; and you can be sure it is someone that do not have your interests at heart. This is Nigeria.

    On election day do not say you will not vote because your vote will not count. Vote anyway. It is that important. You can be sure that each and everyone of those who LIKE the way things are in Nigeria today will be out there voting that day. There are more people in Nigeria who are dismayed with the way things are right now than not. History has shown us that when the majority in a locality go out to vote a candidate in or out in elections, rigging becomes difficult in that area. They will still attempt to rig, but it would be clear as the fake numbers will not add up. So please urge and help your neighbour get registered and to vote on election day. Our future depends on it.

    • tundemash

      A word is enough for the wise ……

    • Mao

      Thank you for this reminder. Everyone should endeavour to get their respective voters card.

  • Ahmad

    If what we are experiencing under your leadership are your promises to Nigerians then we beg you to kindly keep your promises to yourself.

    He has fulfilled his suicidal promises to nigeria……..Apc all the way…..we change..

  • Olalere Yusuf

    Reminds me of my primary school English textbook, Ali and the Angel.
    Yes GEJ fulfilled his promise
    1. In 2011 I paid N65 for a litre of fuel, I now pay N97 yet all Federal roads in South West and North Central Zones of Nigeria are bad.
    2. He promised uninterrupted electricity in 2011 when I paid N1200 for five to ten hours of electricity, now I pay N4000 for less than four hours in a day.
    3. I could travel to any part of Nigeria in 2011, today demonic Boko Haram rules certain part of North East Nigeria, kidnappers in the President’s zone are much more daring now, in fact, armed robbers now have free days.
    4. Nigerians have been transformed to religious and ethnic bigots as reflected in postings on social media platforms.
    5. We now know there is a difference between stealing of public fund and corruption. In any case, with the right connection stealing or corrupt practices can be encouraged or rewarded.

    • Usman

      you ‘v said it all, I just can’t imagine what sort of people these guys are, they don’t give a damn

    • Babso

      What else can I say?

  • kwango

    Nigerias capital budget is 26%. The Jonathan administration says budget performance is below 60%. So about 60% of the meagre 26% has transformed Nigeria and delivered all infrastructural facilities? Dr Jonathan has a very mediocre expectation of what governance is about.

    • tsunami1earthquake

      Nigerians have tolerated him enough; now is the time to send him the red card, otherwise he would be forced out should he rig himself back to power.

  • tsunami1earthquake

    If this is the level of thinking of the president and the PDP with respect to achievement in the last four years, then Nigeria is in serious problem if ever the electorate vote Jonathan again. Care is called for here.

    • Usman

      Its abusive indeed

  • Ette

    This is a grave insult to NIGERIANS by a man who gives no damn. How evil can someone be by pouring such venom from his mouth. Pity we find ourselves here. Time to tell this incompetent and lying person to leave Aso Rock.

  • the_adviser

    I don’t know who his advisers on electricity generation are but it is silly and non economical to continue building dams in arid areas. With dam building ecology of the land is polluted for life. How many solar panel farms did he create? None, yet the power of the sun can be harnessed to provide electricity for the whole country. Sun is what the country have in abundance even villages can have their own supply of electricity by harnessing sun energy. It is simple solutions like this that make China an economic power.

  • Rommel

    If indeed president Jonathan did say that he has delivered on his promise,then should I would say as Nigerians always say that may the lives of this man and all his supporters be like the electricity supply of Nigeria and may their fate be that of Boko Haram victims.

  • Peter

    Hey guys, save your breath for once and pray for your president, the ruling national party and the country. Mr President has tried and I believe that he will do even more. I believe Mr President has done tremendously well over the last three and half years. The Boko Haram insurgency in the North-east and the pockets of suicide bombings in the other areas of the north were designed by the opposition APC urchins in the north and their evil southern collaborators to distract the government in order to ‘give the dog a bad name’, and therefore put some wedge in the way to truncate Mr President’s second tenure bid. Well meaning Nigerians know this and are only merely laughing at the fools and their wrecked dreams. I have taken time to read all the useless posts on this platform and the only reply to their silly rantings is to wait and see what becomes of their wicked aspiration come February 12, 2015. Whether they like it or not, their APC hopes will be dashed because Dr Goodluck Jonathan will win the presidential election in a landslide and will be sworn in on 29th May, 2015 as the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. So pocket your ethnic hatefulness of the man power and join, if you can, to support Nigeria in whatever capacity that you can.

    • Truthometer

      Your corrupt beneficiary (Dumbo) and his evil party (PDP) have delivered bountiful sorrow, tears and blood to Nigerian. What else do you guys have in stock?

  • Usman

    If you truly believe in what you have done so far, I pray that God turns your life the way you turned our country

    • Innocent

      He does not need to believe. God should just do it.

  • Spoken word

    what a pity how he has treated this country. Jona is an Alchemist he has turned this country from Gold to scrap metal. Our laughter has been replaced by tears.

  • me

    Well Mr Jonathan, if this is how you know how to fulfill promise, Nigeria and Nigerians will cease to exist. You are the worst let down i can remember for a long time.

  • clairvoyance

    True u have delivered on ur promises of death, deceit, destruction of Nigeria. 2015 February is the day Nigerians agree with God to end ur evil and wicked reign.

  • Edward Osadebay

    Believe this man you will believe anything.

  • Truthometer

    Dumbo, Nigerians gave you shoes, you gave them back Boko Haram in appreciation of their kindness to you. You have actually delivered the hell you never promised us.

  • me

    You have fulfilled your promises to Edwin Clark, Oritsejeafor, Ifeanyi Uba, Fayose, Oyedokun, Akala, the 419ers, the oil subsidies thieves, David Mark, the looter emirs and the thieves Kabiyesis and Obis, the Tompolos, oil bunkerers, the devilish ministers, the permanent secretaries without a shred of education, the destroyers, the ethnic bigots, the drug dealers and the governors who built no poultry. You have fulfilled your promises to governors whose antecedents are jails, cheats. You have fulfilled your promises to governors whose teachers have not earned salaries in one year and whose states’ shares in Dangote have been converted to cash before the end of their tenures like Suswam.You have fulfilled your promises to ministers like Wogu who sold a shelf company to another person but his wife is still the CEO and used the same company to steal billions in in oil subsidies. You have fulfilled your promises to Nigerians by stealing their 20 BILLION DOLLARS and another 1 BILLION DOLLARS paid to ETETE AND BACK TO YOU. You have fulfilled your promises by becoming bad example to good citizenship in declaring that you do not give a damn to follow constitution and declare your assets publicly. You have fulfilled your promises by taking for ever in sacking a minister who flagrantly forged certificates but now your ardent re election promoter. You have fulfilled your promises to Nigerians by shaming the country through your government carrying cash around the world using clergy’s private planes. You have fulfilled your promise to Nigerians and Nigeria by stoking ethnic and religious division thereby preparing Nigeria for genocide!
    Mr Jonathan, i can go on ad infinitum. The history of Nigeria will never be kind to you and your co travelers like Okonjo, Wogu, David Mark, Wike, Muazu, Tukur, Fayose, Ubas, Ifeanyi, Ihedioha, your pastors, Deziani, your Asari Dokubos, Tompolos, Edwin Clark, Yuguda, Akinjides, Babatopes, Falae, Omisores, Bode George, Aliyus, Jang etc,You and your ilk shall never pass through this country called Nigeria ever again.
    Let the game begin!

  • Martins Oluma Ajiake

    Its only idiots like him ll vote him come February. We Niger people should go out and vote for the right person in respectable of there religious or ethnicity background.

  • Bidemi Lukman

    I like Oga Jona thruthfulness and consciousnes. He never mentioned power, road construction, security e.t.c as part of his achievements even though he promised all these. In the area of corruption, he mentioned “anit-corruption crusade” as part of his achievements. He really waged crusade against anti-corruption and not war aganist corruption. Please, dont rubbish our preisident for saying the truth. By God’s gace and considering the innocence of Nigerian unborn generations, a corrupt leader will never subsits 2015 in NIgeria at all level governance. To make this a reality, we need to consciously vote right leaders irrespective of thier tribe and religion.

  • Ebola or Gej

    Haba Mr Jonathan!! You promise giving us FRESH AIR in 2011, its that the fresh air Nigerians deserves to have?

  • dimma tom

    it appears some people have genetic defect when it comes to constructive political reasoning, some folks mindset is so warped and narrow that they can hardly see what this GEJ led administration has achieved so far in the midst of insecurity created by some brainless monsters just to take power. I rest my case #GEJ4naija
