‘If Buhari doesn’t perform, stone us’

AMID anxiety in the land over the state of the nation, former Minister of Information, Prince Tony Momoh, says President Muhammadu Buhari was capable of tackling headlong the myriad of problems confronting Nigeria, adding that he remained the only President since independence who diligently sought the office and got it.
Momoh, who spoke in Auchi, Etsako West Local Council of Edo, stressed that the agitations notwithstanding, the South East geo-political zone stood to be the biggest beneficiary of the current administration.
The Auchi prince thundered: “At the end of the day if Buhari doesn’t perform, stone us because he is going to perform.”
The former minister, who is also a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) went memory lane, saying:
“He is the only one who came since independence to be president of Nigeria and succeeded. No other one. Tafawa Balewa wanted to be a broadcaster, he became prime minister. Shehu Shagari wanted to become a senator, he became president.
Obasanjo was in prison praying to be released. At the end of the day, he became president. Late Yar ‘Adua wanted to retire to lecture in Ahmadu Bello University, he later became president. Jonathan was taken from Bayelsa to Abuja and made Vice President and later became acting president and president.
Buhari went into politics and wanted to be president, 2003, he failed, 2007 he failed, 2011 he failed and 2015 he succeeded.

New Year brings fresh challenges for Pope Francis

Pope Francis faces a tough 2016, Vatican insiders say, with no let-up in his physically demanding schedule or the political battles over his efforts to modernise the Church.
The 79-year-old pontiff, who eschews holidays and has appeared worn out at times during the last year, has already scheduled major trips to Mexico (February) and Poland (July).
Visits to Kosovo and Armenia (to mark the 100th anniversary of the World War I genocide there) are expected to be added to his diary while France and his native Argentina are also seen as possible destinations in the next 12 months.
Laid low by the flu over Christmas, Francis nevertheless had the energy to insist that his wave-making shake-up of Vatican governance would be pursued in the New Year.
“The reform of the Curia (the Vatican bureacracy) will progress with determination, clarity and resolve,” he said in his end-of-year message to the faithful.
Top of the agenda for 2016 is the creation of two new ministries within the Vatican, one responsible for Laity, Family and Life, the other for Justice, Peace and Migration.
The Vatican’s media operations are also earmarked for reform alongside a continuing clean-up of the Holy See’s finances.
The reform process has encountered resistance amongst sections of the cossetted Vatican hierarchy.
Although there have been no redundancies, many clerics have been sent back to their dioceses and the wings of those who have stayed in Rome have been clipped by spending cutbacks.
– Tricky trial and Saint Theresa –
Francis’s regular public attacks on extravagance and greed in the upper echelons of the Church, his gift for cutting soundbites and his quick-to-anger temperament have not endeared him to many within the Vatican machine.
This has helped to create a paradoxical situation where Francis’s popularity with both believers and non-believers around the world is mirrored by an unusually high level of grumbling about him within the Vatican.
The scale of the internal opposition was underlined in October when an apparently erroneous Italian media report that the pontiff had been treated for a benign brain tumour was immediately attributed to hostile elements seeking to undermine the Argentinian pope.
The work still to be done on the Vatican’s murky finances was underlined on December 15 when a Council of Europe body that combats money laundering and terror financing urged the Holy See authorities to accelerate indictments and prosecutions of officials involved in large-scale irregularities in the Church’s scandal-hit bank and asset management body.
The report from the Moneyval body was embarrassing as it came as the Vatican faces criticism for pursuing the prosecution of three former officials and two journalists over the leaking of classified documents which detail irregularities, extravagance and mismanagement in Church spending.
That trial is due to resume early in the New Year and handling its eventual outcome will be one of the many tricky tasks Francis will have to deal with during a Jubilee Year dedicated to the theme of mercy.
The pope also faces a delicate balancing act in relation to Church teaching on issues related to the family, including the vexed subjects of homosexuality and divorce.
Deep divisions over these questions were exposed at a meeting of senior clerics in October with conservatives rallying strongly to make it clear they oppose any moves to make the Church more welcoming to gay believers or to allow the divorced to remarry and still take communion.
Francis now has to decide if he takes such views on board when he outlines his own thinking in a keenly awaited letter, or ‘Apostolic Exhortation’, to the 1.2 billion Catholics around the world.
The Jubilee year will add to Francis’s workload, notably with the scheduling of an extra weekly audience on Saturdays, in addition to his existing Wednesday and Sunday appearances before the public. One of the highlights of the Jubilee year is expected to come in early September with the expected canonisation of Mother Theresa, the late nun celebrated for her work with the poor in Kolkata.

Explain repayment of N1.84tr loan, PDP tells Buhari

Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the People's Democratic Party.
Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party.
FOR the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the plan by President Muhammadu Buhari to borrow N1.84 trillion loan to fund the N6.08 trillion 2016 budget will aggravate the nation’s economic crisis instead of reducing it. The opposition party thus yesterday asked the Federal Government to explain to Nigerians how it intends repaying the loan.
In an interview in Abuja yesterday, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, explained that a breakdown of the N1.84 trillion showed that Nigeria would be borrowing N5 billion daily for the next 365 days, starting from January 1, 2016, even as he lamented that there was no corresponding provision for economic production and a clear repayment plan, a scenario he noted that would spell doom for the nation in the future.
Metuh said: “Some people may be wondering why we raised the alarm about the budget. The reason is simple. When we analysed the budget, we discovered it is a misshapen attempt at Keynesian economics of applying deficit spending to stimulate growth even when studies have proven that Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rates decrease by over 50% when debt goes from low or moderate to high. But then we know the borrowing here is to pay a huge campaign debt and fund a political war chest.
‘‘By every standard, this budget is a booby trap against the nation.
When you break down the proposed N1.84 trillion borrowing, you discover that it amounts to borrowing N5 billion everyday for the 365 days in 2016. The questions are: For what specific projects are they borrowing N5 billion per day and how do they intend to pay back?’’
He continued: “The president should explain to Nigerians how they intend to pay back the loan. Is it by continuous borrowing to service the interests, and does he intend to accumulate colossal debt for future generations of Nigerians? The truth is that this administration cannot justify this proposal. There is no known economy in the world where you can justify borrowing N1.84 trillion without specific projects and precise repayment outline. This is worse still in an oil-driven, mono-economy at a time crude oil is selling at $30 dollars per barrel and is speculated to go down to about $20 dollars or even lower in the next one year. The idea can only come when you diversify the economy and boost production capacity in manufacturing and other critical sectors, a direction, which the budget clearly failed to provide.”
The PDP warned that Nigeria might be pushed to the level of Greece economically if urgent steps were not taken to reverse the trend.
“From all indicators, the borrowing will be negative. They are driving us to be like Greece, and to plunge us into an unnecessary debt. When the PDP took office in 1999, we achieved the cancellation of inherited debts. This administration, in seeking to accumulate debts, should know that there is no possibility that any country in the world will give us debt cancellation anymore. More importantly, we are really worried about negative economic policies of the present administration and the copying of strategies that failed in other economies.
‘‘Recall that we had earlier alerted to the negative consequences of the retrogressive foreign exchange controls wherein this government is making it impossible for honest Nigerians to engage in free trade and regulate their personal activities. There seems to be the erroneous belief that the controls will create foreign exchange stability or strengthen the naira by limiting foreign currency outflows. This policy had badly affected other countries in the recent past, including Argentina, whose new government had to reverse the policy to save their economy. Why then are we copying a policy that failed in other countries?
‘‘In practice, the kind of crude controls the Federal Government is implementing have been proven ineffective in preventing capital flight. By limiting the local availability of foreign exchange, the controls have instead increased the demand for foreign exchange, putting greater pressure on the naira and achieving the exact opposite of what the government in its naivety believed would happen.
‘‘The negative impacts of the ill-conceived controls include the hindering of international trade and discouraging of foreign investment.
We have seen first-hand the crippling of the private sector in the last six months, upon the implementation of these measures. Traders, importers and all manner of businesses are being destroyed as a result of the contrived unavailability of foreign exchange,” he said.
The PDP spokesman challenged the Federal Government to a public and open debate on the budget devoid of the sentiments of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled National Assembly and who he claimed were mindful of any cuts in their own allocation.

Odion Ighalo…Nigeria’s gift to the EPL

ODION IGHALO completed a permanent switch to Watford in October 2014, having initially signed on a one-year loan from Udinese just three months previous.
After a brief settling-in period, Ighalo burst onto the scene with a remarkable 13 goals in nine fixtures during the opening months of 2015, as he led the scoring charts across the whole of England for the calendar year.
The Nigerian scored 20 goals in total for the Hornets during 2014/15, finishing as the Hornets’ second top-scorer as the club achieved promotion back to the Premier League.
Slides by Ujunwa Ochulo
The Super Eagles’ star goal against Spurs took his goal tally this season to 14 in just 19 matches. The 26 year-old has not looked back since scoring against Everton on his Premier League debut on 8 August 2015.
The Lagos-born Watford striker has taken the premier League by storm. After five years on loan at different clubs in Spain and Italy, the 6ft 2in tall forward as found a stable home in England and is already a terror to the League’s best defenders.
And now, statistics and figures of the current English Premiership show that Odion Ighalo is better this year than Man City’s Aguero, Diego Costa of Chelsea and Leicester’s Vardy.
Odion Ighalo has scored more league goals in England’s top four tiers in 2015 than any other player. In other words, no one has scored more goals in England in 2015 than the Nigerian, all while playing for modest Watford. More than Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa and Jamie Vardy.
After netting an amazing 20 goals in 38 appearances for the Hornets in the Championship, Ighalo quickly dispensed any talk of being a ‘one season wonder’ or ‘lower league striker’ once Watford made the step up to the elite division.
It took Odion Ighalo only nine minutes on the pitch to score his first Premier League goal in a 2-2 draw with Everton, restoring Watford’s lead with seven minutes of play left after he was introduced into the encounter as a 74th minute substitute. It was the newly promoted side’s first top-flight game since 2006-07.
By the end of October, Ighalo had become the highest scorer in Watford’s Premier League history on seven goals, overtaking Heidar Helguson and Hameur Bouazza on six.
The Nigerian had netted again in Watford’s 2-0 trashing of West Ham at Vicarage Road, the first time Watford have scored more than once at home in a Premier League game since April 2007 (4-2 vs Portsmouth).
That game was also West Ham’s first defeat at Vicarage Road since April 1985, having been unbeaten in 11 games at the ground since then (W8 D3).

Bafarawa pledges support for Buhari’s anti-corruption war

Bafarawa-2Former Governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, has endorsed the ongoing anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Bafarawa, who is standing trial in the ongoing arms deal corruption trial made this known to newsmen in Sokoto on Wednesday.
“In spite of our ongoing trial by the court in relation to the arms deal allegations, I still support Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
“Nigerians should support the President’s efforts to tame the social monster, corruption as it stalls the even socio-economic development of the nation.
“I also fought corruption to a standstill when I was a governor in Sokoto state between 1999 and 2007.
“That was why I was able to leave over N12 billion in the coffers of the state when I left office in 2007,” he added.
Bafarawa said: “I have taken the matter as an act of God and I am happy that Allah has enabled me to take it as such.
“As for me, I will not comment on any issues now since the matter is currently in the court,” he said.

Hollande under fire over call to strip citizenship from terror convicts

France President, Francois Hollande
France President, Francois Hollande
President Francois Hollande’s call for convicted French-born terrorists to lose their citizenship if they have a second nationality has triggered uproar among those who see him adopting right-wing ideas that recall dark moments in France’s history.
Ever since the French Revolution in the late 1700s, “le droit du sol” (“the right of the soil”) has been a fundamental principle, giving everyone born in the country the right to citizenship.
But in the aftermath of November’s jihadist attacks in Paris, Hollande announced to an extraordinary session of both houses of parliament that he would seek changes to the constitution so that dual nationals — even those born in France — could be stripped of their French passport.
The idea has huge support from a jittery nation, with nearly 90 percent backing the measure in a poll for BFM TV.
Hollande’s Socialist government has staunchly defended the move with Prime Minister Manuel Valls saying the measure was already used in several Western countries including Britain, Canada and the Netherlands.
“Removing French nationality from those who blindly kill other French in the name of an ideology of terror is a strong symbolic act against those who have excluded themselves from the national community,” Valls wrote on Facebook.
But experts say the measure has little chance of deterring jihadists who are often willing to give up their lives, let alone their passports.
And it could encourage the idea that dual nationals are more of a threat than other citizens — a particular problem in a country that has struggled to integrate immigrants.
“It introduces the idea of a different penalty for the same act, just because of the random chance of their birth,” said Patrick Weil, a political scientist who met Hollande and advised him against the decision.
Weil said France would become “the first democracy in the world” to enshrine in its constitution the principle of unequal treatment of dual nationals.
“The constitution is a text that is written to unify the people and this does the opposite. People know that reinforcing the cohesion of the nation is, in the long term, the only way to defeat terrorism, and this proposal creates an immediate division in the country,” he said.
– An ugly history –
As well as breaking a legal principle, the measure also touches a raw nerve in France’s history, say critics.
The Vichy regime, which collaborated with the Nazis in the 1940s, stripped thousands of Jews and foreigners of French citizenship during World War II.
Dissenters in Hollande’s Socialist party see the move as little short of ideological treason, not least since immigration was one of the few areas where there was clear daylight between the two mainstream parties.
When right-wing leader Nicolas Sarkozy raised the idea of removing the “droit du sol” from some violent criminals in 2011, he was blasted by the Socialists.
Worse still in the eyes of the left, it was an idea first mooted by the far-right, anti-immigrant National Front (FN).
“In wanting to steal the thunder of the far right, we risk implementing their programme,” said Cecile Duflot, a former minister in Hollande’s government.
FN leader Marine le Pen happily took credit when the new reforms were outlined last week, saying it was a direct result of her party’s record tally in recent polls.
“Removal of nationality: the first effect of the 6.8 million votes for the National Front in regional elections,” Le Pen wrote on Twitter.
– ‘Inept and unprincipled’ –
But the attacks of November 13, in which 130 people were killed by Islamic State militants, have changed the calculus for the government.
The reforms also aim to inscribe the right to declare a state of emergency into the constitution, including powers to raid homes and place people under house arrest without judicial oversight.
Parliament will start debating them in early February.
But regardless of the merits of the reforms themselves, the government’s shambolic handling of the debate has done little to improve its reputation for flip-flopping on major issues.
Just a day before the reforms were presented, Justice Minister Christiane Taubira announced the citizenship measure would be dropped because it was discriminatory, only to be overruled at the last minute by Hollande.
Arthur Goldhammer, a prominent US commentator on France, described the episode as yet another “unforced error” by the president’s team.
“Once again, Hollande looks both inept and unprincipled, incompetent and uncommitted to one of the fundamental values of the left,” he wrote on his blog, French Politics.
Economist Thomas Piketty, author of the blockbuster book on inequality “Capital in the 21st Century”, wrote on his blog: “To its economic incompetence, the government has now added infamy.”

Reps sponsored 327 bills in six months

Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, House Leader of the House of Representatives, on Wednesday said that the 8th Assembly in its six months of existence had sponsored a total of 327 bills as against 132 presented within the first six months of the 7th Assembly.
Gbajabiamila said this in Lagos, at an end of the year media briefing on activities of the 8th House of Representatives from June 9 to Dec. 22.
He said that 264 Bills out of the 327 had passed through first reading and awaiting second reading while a total of 40 Bills had been referred to committees.
According to him, inspite of a bumpy start in June when the house was inaugurated, the House has been able to step up to the plate and has busied itself in working for the progress of Nigeria.
“In keeping with the resolve of the President to address the issues of insecurity, unemployment and corruption amongst others, we developed a legislative agenda that will guide the House in achieving its set objectives.
“The Bills and Motions sponsored and passed so far are clear demonstrations of the House’s resolve to make laws and embark on legislative activities for the good governance of Nigeria.
“Bills have been presented and resolutions passed to address the issues of insecurity, unemployment, economic reform, reform in the oil and gas sector of the economy etc.
“We are not there yet but we intend as a House to vigorously align with the hopes and aspirations of the Nigerian masses,” he said.
Gbajabiamila said that the 8th Assembly, in its six months of existence, investigated many issues that affect the development of the health, education, power and energy sectors.
He said that they also investigated and deliberated on welfare of IDPs and victims of terrorism, good governance and anti corruption, transportation, security and came up with resolutions.
Gbajabiamila said that the house intended to pursue the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill in the coming year and present further amendment to the constitution.
He said the amendment was to provide a more perfect document that would guide the nation.
“As a House, we have, through the instrumentality of the law, extended the 2015 capital budget to March 2016 in conformity with our constitution which prescribes a 12- month budget span, thereby ensuring the continuation of the infrastructural development envisaged in the 2015 budget.
“On the 2016 budget, we will look at the proposals and the document with a fine tooth comb, dot the ‘Is’ and cross the ‘Ts’ where and if necessary,” he said.
Gbajabiamila said the 8th Assembly would appreciate continued support and understanding of Nigerians.

Bill Cosby charged with sexual assault: prosecutor

US comic Bill Cosby has been charged with sexual assault in Pennsylvania over an incident that took place in 2004, a prosecutor said Wednesday — the first criminal charges filed against the actor after dozens of women claimed abuse.
“Mr Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault. This is a felony,” Kevin Steele, assistant district attorney for the state’s Montgomery County, told reporters in Norristown, in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
Cosby, 78, was to be arraigned later Wednesday. If found guilty, the veteran television star could face up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
More than 50 women have already publicly claimed abuse by the pioneering African-American comedian, who attained his greatest fame for his role as the lovable family doctor and pater familias in the hit 1980s sitcom “The Cosby Show.”
But his attorneys have repeatedly denied any wrongdoing by Cosby, who has gone from megastar to pariah in the face of the allegations, which span four decades. Earlier this month, he filed a defamation suit against seven of his accusers.
The Pennsylvania criminal charge stems from allegations made by a former employee of Temple University in Philadelphia, who says the television legend assaulted her at his home in the suburb of Cheltenham in 2004.
“On the evening in question, Mr Cosby urged her to take pills that he provided to her and to drink wine — the effect of which rendered her unable to move, (or to) respond to his advances, and he committed aggravated indecent assault upon her,” Steele said.
Steele said the charge — which prosecutors later clarified is a felony of the second degree — stemmed from new evidence in the case that came to light in July, prompting the reopening of the investigation.
“A prosecutor’s job is to follow the evidence wherever it leads and whenever it comes to light,” Steele said.
“Today, after examination of all the evidence, we are able to seek justice on behalf of the victim,” he added, urging anyone with information about similar incidents with Cosby to come forward.
In a statement, prosecutors accused Cosby of fondling the woman and penetrating her with his fingers.
– Statute of limitations –
Steele did not name the victim, but the facts of the case correspond with allegations made by Andrea Constand. Constand’s lawyer, Dolores Troiani, confirmed to CNN that the charge was connected to her.
In 2005, an initial investigation did not result in criminal charges against Cosby in Constand’s case.
In a deposition Cosby gave as part of a civil suit filed by Constand, which was settled in 2006, the actor insisted all relations with Constand were consensual, and accused her of lying about the assault.
“I think Andrea is a liar and I know she’s a liar because I was there. I was there,” Cosby said in the deposition, cited by The New York Times.
Prosecutors said the release of court documents in July and the subsequent release of the deposition had in part led to the reopening of the case. Steele said the victim had said she was willing to cooperate with prosecutors.
Statutes of limitations have prevented most of the women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault from taking legal action. In the Pennsylvania case, the statute of limitations was set to expire early next year.
The accusations against Cosby have led television networks to back away from projects connected to him, and several universities have stripped him of honorary degrees.

Good luck! :w':

Goodluck, Jonathan!

THE comma in the middle of my headline converts it from a name to a remark or a sentence. As in prison sentence.
For I predict that by this time next year, the best-known bearer of that name, Nigeria’s former leader Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, will be serving one.
In the closing weeks of 2015, what was sometimes conveniently dismissed by his supporters as heavy criticism of Mr. Jonathan has proved to be fair. That tragedy is that he did not run a government; he ran a-no-rules and no-responsibility bazaar to ennoble, and enable, the shameless privatisation of Nigeria’s resources.
A case in point (and the only envelope to be opened so far): what some people now call Dasukigate: an arms-purchase scandal anchored by the National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki through which federal funds meant for arms for the military were being distributed to the well-connected.
It is unclear when and how it became the business of the NSA to purchase military armament. Nigeria’s appropriation laws and practices do not reflect that.
Scandalous, but Mr. Jonathan superintended it.
To worsen the scandal, the star of Jonathan’s cabinet, Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, confirmed early in December that she had also transferred into the hands of Dasuki previously-undisclosed “new Abacha funds of about $322 million” for “urgent security operations.” It is unclear where those funds came from.
Remember: In June 2014, Liechtenstein returned $227m to Nigeria, to which Jonathan responded with a committee of cabinet to determine how it was be used. Nothing was heard of the Liechtenstein funds thereafter, but Nigerians at least knew how much was involved, where it had come from, and when it arrived.
Three months earlier in March 2014, Switzerland repatriated $380 million, bringing that country’s total Abacha loot return to over $1billion.
The point here is that until circumstances this month compelled Okonjo-Iweala’s confession, nobody had ever declared the return of “about $322 million…with another $700 million still expected.”
In various commentaries over the years, I have argued that contrary to the tale being told by government officials—especially Okonjo-Iweala—Nigeria has recouped billions of Sani Abacha dollars, with no evidence they have been used for Nigeria. The casual, and illegal, transfer to NSA Dasuki of $322 million by the tag team of Jonathan and Okonjo-Iweala demonstrates the point.
With no legal authorisation of any kind, in a democracy supposedly governed by specific structures and laws, the Finance Minister gave $322m to the NSA Minister. Read her statement closely and observe how she carefully tried to steer attention away from the quality of the crime with the promise of future riches: a forthcoming $700m that would presumably not be distributed among politicians, but “applied for development programmes as originally conceived.”
But these are not the things that Mr. Jonathan was saying in the United States a week or two earlier as he marketed his “Goodluck Jonathan Foundation” at the Presidential Precinct in Virginia.
The Precinct has the potential to do a lot of good work. Managing Director Neal Piper writes: “The Precinct offers an interactive and engaging learning experience that connects leaders – allowing them to share their expertise, collaborate, and build on ideas and lessons learned here and around the globe. Our goal is for participants to learn skills that they can apply in their home countries thereby helping them reach their goals and aspirations while transforming the economies and governance where they live. The Presidential Precinct allows them to make connections that will help build their personal futures.”
You read that convoluted construction carefully, and it is clear that the mission of the Precinct is muddled up between its obligations to former leaders such as Mr. Jonathan, from whom it obtains its limelight; and its nod to future leaders, for whom it seeks its political legitimacy.
Mr. Jonathan was the wrong client, and although The Precinct said it was helping him to hone the message of the GEJ Foundation, that plan is undermined by Mr. Jonathan’s political record.
The former Nigerian leader did not tell his audience about that first envelope: Dasukigate, let alone such forthcoming envelopes as the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, the Transformation Agenda, Sure-P, or the broad daylight rigging back into office in Ekiti State of Governor Ayo Fayose.
Instead, and here is the video of one of the public events, he told the curious story of how, when he was young, Africa was “considered the dark continent,” a misunderstood concept he wants to change through his foundation to make it “a light, a very bright continent.”
He tells the story of his economic triumphs and how he transformed Nigeria into the biggest economy in Africa within five years on account of his reforms. “We reformed the private sector. So many sectors. We reformed our power sector. We reformed the agricultural sector. We reformed our oil and gas sector. Our industrial sector…
Watch the video: “We involved young men and women in the private sector. We mentored them, encouraged them to set up small businesses, macro and small and medium scale enterprises in terms of light manufacturing, processing…food items, and also the service sector and it worked wonderfully well…”
“[Mentoring]…Our philosophy was that every young person that is keying to our programme in five years should be able to employ two to five others but when we started that programme under two years some of them could employ up to ten, even more…”
It is true that in April 2014, Nigeria’s economy became Africa’s largest when it was rebased to include in her GDP industries such as telecoms, airlines, film production, information technology, and online sales. None of them had anything to do with Jonathan or his policies.
On the contrary, his government’s “reform” initiatives were often betrayed by his government. Unemployment soared; power supply worsened. Stealing received Mr. Jonathan’s official stamp of approval; merit declined as a currency; his government shared out money meant for combating the insurgency in the North. His was Nigeria’s most incoherent government since 1960.
When did Mr. Jonathan implement the policies he speaks about in the video? Where are the figures to back up his claims?
In what year or in what local council area did he encourage young graduates to go into farming—a programme he claims has been so successful that doctors, engineers and lawyers have switched into it?
In his mix of misinformation and disinformation, the former Nigeria probably imagined he was in Nollywood, where fiction has no consequences.
But this is the same mindset that ruined his years in the presidency, and for which he was rejected at the polls last March.
The envelopes, please. And oh, Goodluck, Mr. Jonathan.
