THE MUCH ANTICIPATED ELECTION HAS FINALLY COME. RESULT HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED AND THE WINNER DECLARED.
MESSAGES ARE POURING IN FROM WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE NATION CONGRATULATING THE WINNER FOR A HARD FOUGHT VICTORY. MEANWHILE, THERE ARE SPECULATION THAT THE CURRENT PRESIDENT EXPECTED TO LOOSE.
REASONS ARE ;
1) FUEL SUBSIDY REMOVAL ;
Goodluck Jonathan what would happen if he removed fuel subsidy
.that was the beginning of mass hatred towards him. Work was halted for 1 month due to mass protest. Jonathan was declared most insulted president on social network.
2) disobedience to political godfather ;
the cabal who helped made Jonathan a president strongly adviced Jonathan against petroleum deregulation and power privatisation. Goodluck disobeyed .the cabal who were strong beneficiaries of the subsidy fund and power contract teamed up to make his government hell.they sponsored a small terrorist group to keep Jonathan distracted.while they joined Jonathan opposition .
FOI BILL ; JONathan signing the foi bill so the average Nigeria would know what happens in government. This bill made his administration non-secretive. Odua Stella corruption van issue was made public to the world.
4) late declaration
Goodluck made his intention to contest election less than 7months to election day towards his party deadline date.a serious contestant should declare much earlier.
5)outburst with Obasanjo ; the moment obasanjo was removed as member of board of trustee,pdp i smelt a rat.
The moment he started writing letters to Jonathan and called press conference , i knew the two weren’t working together.
When obasanjo tore his memberships card,i knew pop would loose power.
Jonathan never listened to obasanjo advice. He wasn’t ready to be used as a pawn by godfather.,
6) goodluck shifting election ; if election didn’t hold in born,,bauchi and other bokoharam states, goodluck would have had the upper hand. Instead, he shifted election to fight the insurgency few days before leaving power. Election held in these states and Jonathan was voted against.
7) what sought of leader would negotiate a soft landing for himself and his aids few days to election? Definitely a leader on the verge of living
8) CONGRATULATING HIS OPPONENT EVEN BEFORE WINNER IS ANNOUNCED. ;
9) BLOCKING HIS PARTY FROM CHALLENGING ELECTION IN COURT TO PREVENT OPPONENT FROM DISTRACTION.
IT seems Jonathan knew the fate that would befall him right from inception. He did what he felt was right. Like a courageous boy, he fought the mighty hands greater than him. He knew he would be beaten. He knew the hands would frustrate his administration and bring him down.he had a choice, obey and no fight and your 2nd term is assured or disobey, get beaten and no second term.
He knew they were stronger than him.they had the finance, supporters,,population etc. Yet, he proceeded with the fight. He only managed to throw two punches while receiving several punches.eh didn’t give up. The grass(masses) suffered also.
He recontested in order not to act like a coward.
He wasn’t really concerned about winning a fight. He wasn’t really concerned about retaining his power else he would’t have engaged in a fight in the first place. He was more interested fighting Godfathers and removing Nigeria from the hands of the oilcabals more than the building economy.
Is this being courageous or mere unity?
The grass ,with the cabal finally brought him down.
