Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is regarded by some Nigerians as the best President ever in the history of Nigeria following the way things are going presently. While some see him as the strongest, some think he is not as they sometimes tagged him as ‘bad’ and also attributed the theft of public funds during his presidency to his failure to take constructive decisions that would be geared towards putting an end to corruption.
After completing Late Yar’Adua’s tenure as President, Goodluck Jonathan was elected in 2011. The opposition party and some members of the People’s Democratic Party opposed his administration strongly (PDP).
His administration has been marked by a Boko Haram insurgency that several times made Dame Patience Jonathan to tear. Googlik Ebele Jonathan, a man of the family, was calm and humble and he quickly took care of pressing issues.
He was forced to vote for the APC in 2015 as President of Mohammadu Buhari. Yet the same people who abused and named Jonathan years ago, regretted that some of whom came out to apologize publicly, were from stuff’ viewpoint.
Goodluck is tipped by Nigerians, Jonathan will emerge as the President of Nigeria in 2023 and only spend a term as Nigerian President if he succeeds. Nigerians have appealed to Goodluck Jonathan to save the country from this mess and many wait for him to respond to the widespread rumor that he is making in 2023.
Goodluck Jonathan said in a short interview yesterday that it was too early for him to say whether he planned to do so for 2023. If he did not state that he had no desire, he could come out in 2023.
Following the Channels TV’s tweeting of Goodluck Jonathan, a Mahmoud Lawal Twitter user dug out what Olusegun Obasanjo said about him three years ago with a lot of commitments (likes, retweets and shares).
Olusegun Obasanjo said he did not dispute the fact that Goodluck Jonathan is the hero in most Nigerians’ eyes, but Nigeria would have been plundered out of the world plan had he been re-elected in 2015. He said he did not dispute this situation.
“I’m not saying Goodluck Jonathan is not YOUR Hero, but if he was reelected, Nigeria would have been looted out of the world map by now.”
Some public office owners were accused of corrupting practices during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan, one of them being diezani Alison-Madueke, who was appointed minister of oil in April 2010. We have discovered much of her mansion in Dubai, London and elsewhere and have confiscated some of its assets, which were later forfeited, by the Commission for Economic and Financial Crimes.
Diezani Alison-Madueke has been accused in the run-up to the 2015 presidential elections of reversing $115m of oil cash to influential People’s Democratic Party representatives. The former FCT Minister Jumoke Akinjide (N650m); former finance minister Amb are the ones who reportedly collected cash from Diezani Alison-Madueke. Ex Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Nurudeen Muhammad (N450m) of the Bashir Yuguda, Amb Aminu Wali (N950m); (N500m).
Do you agree with what Olusegun Obasanjo said 3 years ago that Nigeria would have been looted if Jonathan was reelected?
