An Urgent Letter To President Jonathan

 

 

 

 

 

Dear President Jonathan,

Those who know how to “blow” to much English will say that “a desperate situation calls for a desperate solution.” I heard the news that you were in Udi to attend a funeral mass in honour of the late mother of Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State. While speaking at the funeral event, you flew off at a tangent and confessed that “something must have gone wrong along the line from 1914 when the Southern and Northern Protectorates were amalgamated till date.” You further explained as follows: “When you look at the 1914 amalgamation of the Southern and Northern Protectorates, and between the period Nigeria got independence in 1960 and the time I was sworn-in as President, you will agree with me that I am not the problem of Nigeria. I have just stayed two years and the problems have been there before me.”

Dear President, I must salute your sense of history. At the same time, I need to point out to you that as I read about your submission at Udi town, I was so much awestruck by your confession that you could have knocked me down with a feather! All along, we had always known that something is terribly wrong with Nigeria; that Nigeria is like an ocean-going, titanic vessel that has run out of steam and combustion and, thus, stranded mid-stream; a mere artificial creation existing only in the imagination of those who partake in bleeding it dry – and this pack includes, Sir, all of you who crave for perpetual asylum at Aso Rock, Abuja as well as in all the Government Houses at the various state capitals in the country. Yes, you needed not to belabour us with a grave-side chronicle of our illegitimate past, for to do so would only amount to teaching one’s grandmother how to suck eggs.

More importantly, Mr. President, most Nigerians had always believed that you are not the problem. If anything, you were supposed to be the solution; at least, that was what you made us to believe when you courted our votes and electoral mandate. Remember that your familiar sing-song, “A breath of fresh air!” You knew quite well, at that time, that Nigeria’s problems existed right from the days of “John the Baptist.” Yet, you came up and promised us “fresh air.” And by that, we understood it to mean a promise of change, of transformation and a radical departure from our ugly heritage. Dear President, as I listen to you now, the tone of your utterances readily reminds me of the story of my kinsman, Mazi Ogbundife, who once visited a local palm wine joint. After he had saturated his bowels with a generous dose of the white liquor, he staggered his way home. On getting to his house and sighting his wife, he forgot her name and called her “John Bull.”

In your funeral oration, you submitted that “I have just stayed two years and the problems have been there before me.” Sir, must you “occupy” Aso Rock until the grass grows under your feet before something remedial happens. Could it be that this is your own subtle way of saying that you would need an eight-year tenure before you can begin to scratch the surface of the country’s problems. Dear President, to concede to you that you are not the problem is, indeed, to become unduly charitable to you. The sad truth is this: by the logic of your governance style, you have burdened us with more problems than we could ever have fathomed. I will respectfully paint a few scenarios for you.

While you were campaigning for electoral votes, you declared to us that your administration will maintain zero-tolerance for corruption. But as it stands today, official corruption (under your very tenure) has not only grown worse, but has gone to hell in a hand-basket. Just take a second glimpse at your own copies of the various probe reports piled up over the period and then tell me what you see. Under your very nose, political office holders- and top civil servants alike – run amok in a looting spree, almost like death-prone cultists whose chances of survival crucially depend on how much they are able to steal.

Today, there is practically no sector of the economy, no agency or institution of government, and no public service official presiding over public funds that you will probe and not be confronted with a cankerworm of horrifying corruption. The situation has become so messy that public officials – elected or appointed – are no longer contented with just stealing from the public purse. Now, they take the cash as well as carry the purse! In the face of such unbridled criminality in government, what has been your clear response, Mr. President? Playing the ostrich! Your Justice Minister, recently, has come out to say that you would require more “forensic evidence.” Haba Presidoo!!! You and I know quite well that one does not require a Chinese torch-light to see that what is perching on his scrotum is an injurious tse-tse fly.

You equally talked merrily during your campaigns about your readiness to tackle oppressive poverty in the land and to feed us with the “sacramental” dividends of democracy. We had always radiated optimism that you will grant us respite from our travails as a people and transform our lives positively. But ever since you got to that “Rock” and they gave you that big book and you swore, “so help me God,” all we have been getting are a cocktail of ceaseless increments – fuel, electricity, tuition, etc. As if that is not enough, you have developed passion for incurring loans with such promiscuous voracity and, in the process, piling up huge debts that sooner or later will become a millstone round our neck; one that would, assuredly, force us into bondage and expose us to another round of harassment and exploitation by your predatory foreign lenders. Still, with all the borrowings being incurred on our behalf, we can hardly pinpoint any significant improvement in our living conditions: the road networks still defy navigability, public health-care is largely ineffectual, the educational system is cadaverous, and power supply is chronically convulsive. In certain cases, the delivery of these “public goods” has not only stagnated, but has become even worse than you met them.

At the moment, most Nigerians are still trapped in the poverty cobweb that they now can hardly muster any hope of possible redemption. When you set out to mobilize these indigent compatriots to come and grace your rallies in those gigantic stadia during your campaigns, we felt you already knew that their plight was so wretched that they neither have a pot to piss in nor two pennies to rub together. How do you think they will feel, Mr. President, when they now see you point a defeatist finger in the direction of godforsaken Lord Lugard as the source of their problems?

In the area of addressing the country’s security challenges, you – Mr. President – have also been as disappointing as wet gunpowder. You were the one who openly confessed that Boko Haram had infiltrated your government. You hinted that some of your lieutenants and public officials were covertly sympathetic to Boko Haram. A few of them have equally been fingered for their culpability in the fuel subsidy scam. Ironically, when Nigerians guessed that you were going to sieve the wheat from the chaff, you beat a hasty retreat and announced that you had no plans to reshuffle your cabinet. Having appropriated, unprecedentedly, a staggering amount of almost N1 trillion for security in the 2012 budget, Nigerians as yet do not know who they are fighting against. When your National Security Adviser, NSA, volunteered to offer some clue, you hurriedly interjected by claiming that “he has been misquoted; impliedly, that Nigerians were too amateurish and unenlightened to correctly decode the deep parable of an orally-diabetic General!

Your pledge, dear Jonathan, to always conform to the dictates of the rule of law has become highly suspect. When the National Judicial Commission, NJC, recommended the removal of Justice Ayo Salami of the Federal Court of Appeal, you not only removed him but did so with the speed of a ram and the blindness of a millipede. Few months afterwards, the same NJC, after realizing – like the proverbial prodigal son – that it had erred, had reversed itself and recommended the reinstatement of Justice Salami. Ever since, you – Mr. President – have feigned indifference and have had to carry on as if you are awaiting the delayed arrival of a “Prophet of the Most High” to come and interpret the second recommendation to you.

In conclusion, Mr. President, we will pretend to believe that you were misquoted at Udi just like the way you claimed Azazi had been misquoted. Nevertheless, it bears repeating – even if for the umpteenth time – that no administration or political regime ever succeeds on the pretext that it can make an omelette without breaking eggs. We cannot successfully transform as a nation when you appear to be seized by a desire not to offend those army of looters milling around in government circles. Neither can your lamentations about our amalgamation hold any water as long as you equally continue to ignore – and to frustrate – the legitimate agitation by Nigerians for a restructuring of the country along the lines of a truly federalist state.

Finally, if you must stand the chance of making any meaningful headway in the arduous task of pulling our chestnut out of the fire, you must resolve to assume – and to be seen to have assumed – the driver’s seat in piloting the country’s ship of statecraft, and to also realize that as the president, the buck stops at your table. In the end, Nigerians will not remember you as the President who reminded them of their ugly past and the source of their problem, but as one who took bold and courageous steps to secure their liberation.

    What a pity.when your own makes a mistake they say misquoat but when its someone else like buhari, they say he is over heatting the populace.That’s naija for u

  • Abdul

    Nice peace!

  • Abdul

    Nice piece! Gej is sofer the most clueless president we ever hard in Nigeria. Fresh Air indeed

  • Bukkie

    He’s an achiever, his budget for aso rock speaks volume of his achievement in d last one yr. He’s indeed a shame to civilian as he profess to be

  • Haruna

    How on earth can a person who vied for Presidency lack even an ounce of shame to address citizens in this way. Most of the people there most likely voted for him and he’s giving them a lecture about not being part of the cause! I want to believe that GEJ is smarter than that but he seems adamant in proving me wrong. Mr President have you forgotten? You told us that you are the best man to solve these issues, nothwithstanding our history. Instead you fart all over the place and are suffocating us with polluted-pungent air.

  • fradomlove

    Our problems are many and deep rooted,to save Nigeria from this sorry state we plunged ourself..the first thing to do is to have an independent national assembly that is able and ready to act as check and put the executive (the President) on his toes.. suspension of salami,single handed increament of subsidy payment,lack of will to prosecute his indicted party men on subsidy and other probes are all impeachment offences.. what i am trying to say is that our number one enemy is not Jonathan but David Mark.H

  • ola

    this is time bomb, all d affected persons should make correction where neccessary.

  • tin

    TOO MANY EVIL MEN IN NIGERIA , DID BUHARI SOLVE ALL NIGERIA PROBLEMS BEFORE HE WAS BOOTED OUT FOR INEFFICIENCY ? HE IS JUST CRYING FOR NOT GETTING FREE MONEY AGAIN !!!!!

  • Abdulrahman ABIODUN

    This guy is on point,d article is hot like fire.The story of Gej is like a company dt is going under and d shareholder decided to change d MD.after getting to d positn of authority, d newly elected chief executive started telling d shareholder abt how the company has been badly ran,d genesis of d problem and dt d liability of such company is more than d asset,d funny thing is dt d MD continue to enjoy d benefit(asset) of being d MD bt not ready to solve d problem(liability) if u are the shareholder what wil u do?

  • Muhammad musa

    If anyone has any doubt about Mr. President being controlled from the shadow, one should better have a rethink. Nothing is as clueless as a puppet.

  • Stanley Nwaokike

    El-Rufai Nasiru, when u are right i will not fail to give a thumb up. We are sufforcating in fresh air. Thank u for speaking for us.

  • Kabir

    I had to say dis not because of interest in Naija or GEJ,bt bcos i was impressed wt d piece.
    Summarily,GEJ is just another impossibility.even if u cant give what u dont have,make effort to give it a shot.being empty and remaining empty is depressingly annoying!in ds coumtry,pple depend on generator,private borehole,private sch,maiguard,private business…..govt is not existing!

  • http://google Ibrahim

    I hope he got d letter. Though, expect neither reply nor understanding. What jonathan was trying to tell us at Udi was as simple as ‘amalgamation’ was wrong, as such the solution is ‘disintegration’ period! What a dull president!

    This piece is enough food&drink for thought

    “Truth is trust, falehood is a breach of trust” per Abubakr Sadiq (R.A). Sir U have said it all. May God grant u more courage to always point out the truth.

    What a shame 4 the one so called president, can’t u use your common sense to think 4 the solutions to the problems of our dear nation Nigeria.

  • Mariam Zuyeali

    It is only God that we are counting on. Gej God pass you. It is not by force 2 b president o. Since 9ja’s prob has been existing b4 his time, and he is not interestd in trying 2 help, he can resign. Any way, “God day” na him be poor man prayer.

  • Bilyaminu Abubakar

    How I wish Nigeria as a Nation can choose to play, pulse, fast forward and or rewind her life just the way we do with most of our Electronics gadgets…. I would have choose to either Rewind to a tenure which was more concerned with the plight of its masses and Pulse, Or rather, Fast forward this present tenure and NEVER to Play it again.

  • emmmmmyyyyyy

    Disintegration oh yea! That will solve the problem of boko-haram. The hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob.

  • Biggy

    Never read a piece so blunt in a long time.GOD bless u my broda.

  • Abdul S Garko

    Hmmmmm very nice piece ofcourse bt what do u expect frm a person dat dnt hv a shoe while his mates busy trading hides n skin with england n italy at dat tym.

  • http://wwww liver

    GEJ was an error of presidential candidate, May Nigeria never see or experience his type again. He added to the pains of Nigerian while his kinsmen are stealing massively.

  • emeka

    Myopic thinking Nigerians are just talking about disintegration,do they think if it happens nigeria will be divided into only 2 parts?no nigeria will be divided into more than 6 parts,so is left for you figure out where you will finally belong to in the long run,if u think is the final solution to nigeria’s problem then you are yet to face the real problem…

  • Babarash

    Nice piece. Guys, my problem with us all is plenty of talk n kom twenty15 he will b re-elected.what do we as a people do to stop them?

  • Mikha’il

    You said Jonathan should wake up. Well i know how someone has never been sleeping should wake up. he has nothing to offer but to bastardize the country more, he that failed to manage his home can not manage over 150 million Nigerian. My advice for him is that he should just take a bold step and vacate aso rock.

    They soon come out to campaign for 2015 elections. should GEJ make up his mind to contest for 2015 election, would you ever encourage him to do so or even vote for him. My advise therefore to all Nigerian is leave sentiment aside be it ethnic or religion, and vote for the right person that will better the life of people in Nigeria. God bless Nigeria

    Good Day,
    My Name Is Linda Mesa I want You all To be careful there.nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get financial help.any answer of a loan lender to your question,you MUST ignore,because they are SCAMS…real SCAMS…i was a victim of which i was ripped thousands of dollars….Well thank God for a Christan Loan Officer,I was referred to by my cousin,who is by name,Mr.James Ben Of Cherish Microfundings Inc.They made my life a valuable one,and gave it a meaning.I was approved loan of $31000.00 USD AND IN 48 HOURS after meeting up to their necessary requirements,my loan was deposited in my bank account.Though I was very nervous with the loan firm at the first place due to my previous bad experiences,especially when the issue of me settling the transfer charges came up,I hold on to my faith due to the fact that my relative referred me,got it cleared,and as God should have it.little did I know that my financial shortcomings has come to a final HALT .If not for that quick referral from a relative of that genuine source ,I would have regretted my total life,because at that point in time I just divorced the father of my son,and my son (Kenneth) was faced with a ” between life and death ” situation ..I was faced with his hospital bills and was also faced with foreclosure at my apartment.Details of the GOD SENT and RELIEVING source won’t be disclosed to you for now, for fear of impersonation ( because it has being discovered that some persons are not really in need of financial help,but are there to impersonate real loan lenders through their phone numbers and email accounts,and acting to be them where necessary to those in real need)…I couldn’t comment on your post because it was a public place and I fear you would fall into the hand of all these fraudulent loan officers (even in US) like how they ripped me off.You must be able to convince me real hard,and provide good proofs,before I can give you the full details of this legitimate loan officer..Their charge is very affordable and reliable compare to many out there,their interest rates just 2.5%,little documentation,and little credit check(irrespective of your credit score,but you MUST have a good and liable income source) His Name is Mr Potter Mark Feel free to email him at his via Email: juniorloancompany.link07@yahoo.com ” and you will be free from scams
