“Jonathan’s Administration Is An Affliction On Nigeria”Latest News, News, Nigeria 2015 Election Tuesday, March 24th, 2015
Pro-democracy activist and Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State, Comrade Shehu Sani, has described the government of President Goodluck Jonathan, as an affliction on the people of Nigeria in the last six years.
Sani who spoke at a sensitization workshop organized by the Buhari/osinbajo Youths Support Groups as well as the Proud Talakawa Movement (PTM), at the Yar’Adua centre Abuja on Monday, pointed out that in the last 16 years of Jonathan’s government, the country has witnessed massive looting of public treasury as well as mass murder of innocent citizens.
According to him,”For the past 16 years, it has been the case of waste, of corruption, of mass murder of innocent citizens by the ineptitude and incompetence of the ruling party. From the side lines, as a private citizen, I did my very best to see how we could bring an end to the Boko Haram insurgency. That informed my decision, in September 2011,to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, to the Boko Haram”.
He added that “We have all done our best. But it is very clear that the obstacle to ending this insurgency, is Jonathan’s government. It had reached a point where I told the Boko Haram people to stop calling my phone because we were completely frustrated out. There was no interest on the side of the government, to end the insurgency.
“We all have a stake in democratic government.we have done all these because we believe that Nigeria can be great again. I don’t have to stand here and sing the praises of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari because he lives in Kaduna like me. So we leave those praises.
“But we know his potentialities and what he is capable of doing for Nigeria. But we should also know that he is not an Abraham Lincoln who will be contesting election every day. We have to do all we can, on the 28 of March. We have made that very clear in Kaduna, to the sitting Vice-President,that the 3.1million registered voters in Kaduna are prepared to be killed.
The Jonathan administration is an affliction. It is a course on Nigeria.
“They have looted over $45billion in the last six years he served as a President. Over 65,000 Nigerians have been killed.We have seen how a government openly supported terrorism. They keep giving oil pipeline contracts to the Tom Polos,Asari Dokubos, to the Ganiu Adams and so on”.
He advised the youths and iNdeed all Nigerian electorate to be vigilant and ensure that their votes count during the elections, pointing out that”The World is waiting for Nigeria to reclaim its place of honour. And I believe that a vote for Gen. Muhammadu Buhari as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, will provide a focus, a new hope for our country”.
Speaking earlier, Professor Borisade who represented former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar as Chairman of the occasion, asked the participants to do all they can, to protect the change that is coming. He argued that the fact the ruling party in Nigeria has been doing everything possible, to prevent the election from holding, is an admittance of failure.
