‘A Sordid Tale in Gross Incompetence,’ CPC Says of Jonathan’s First Year

By SaharaReporters, New York

The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), in a retrospective assessment of the first year of Goodluck Jonathan’s presidency, yesterday returned a verdict of incompetence and dismal failure.

“Beyond the grandstanding and abundant rhetoric of the government, there is nothing worthy of note that the Administration of Dr Jonathan has done to improve the infrastructural development, Education, Security and Economy of the Nigerian State,” the party said in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Rotimi Fashakin.

It pointed to the poor results of Nigerian students in NECO, WASC and JAMB Examinations, the country’s infrastructure, roads, electricity, insecurity, and ethno-religious divisiveness that is supervised by the leadership for vain political advantage as examples of this failure.  

“The policy summersault in the economic management is enough indication of the confusion at the top echelon of the Nation’s governance,” CPC said.  “The leadership-induced sleaze tendency is still nightmarish, as the like had never been seen in the Nation’s checkered history.”

For the 1st time, CPC is

For the 1st time, CPC is playing the real opposition it should play. Can CPC please tow this part rather than always crying for the blood of the innocent youth corpers in 2015 in advance?

GEJ mislead us.

clearly jonatthan has show that he cnnot rule a country he shud go away and allow 2015 for buhari. inflation has increase wen he decided that we shud suffer for fuel subsidy offenders, the support we christians gave him in his ellction is over

Did Buhari not pick Chuba

Did Buhari not pick Chuba okadigbo as his running mate..what happened to him in 2003 will repeat itself even if Ngige is picked by him. Buhari also went for late Ume Ezeoke in 2007..he failed woefully. Buhari is not marketable politically...ANPP won 9 states before they adopted Buhari to chase obj out of office....by the time the 2003 elections were over..ANPP was left with less than 6 states....Buhari would have won the hearts of Nigerians if he had congratulated Gej..and not allowed himself be deceived by boot leakers turned politicians. Or divorced himself from leading boko haram at night to murder non Fulanis In the north

@ Rafiu

Read my comment again, I was quoting a blogger by the name of Olekun who actually said that "GEj was 100 times better than Buhari", and i was articulating my DISMAY at the statement.The General may not have all the solutions to Nigeria's problems, but I know he a honest & honorable man, and to me that is the best thing one can say about anyone. The looting that has persisted under PDP mirule would NEVER have happened under Buhari, because people would simply have lost their lives . end of story

Are U God u fool which power

Are U God u fool which power do u have to stop him 2015, buhari is better than u he is honest u know it, just read his performance record. U pdp pulpit .

You re a coward for calling

You re a coward for calling buhari a blood thirsty, u know cult members who suck blood everyday pdp for 13 yrs nothing good to show to the country, just go to Lagos today you will know that fasola has done well, not like those evils pdp, very soon they will run on their heels, buhari loves Nigeria

Respond

Responding to your comment, understand GEJ has killed more than Buhari, he has been a better person than GEJ in every aspect of jugdement, people like you are the one deceiving Nigerian from making a good choice.
Once again Buhari are more better than GEJ, if you have a child and he or she look like GEJ you most disowne that child.

its unfortunate !!!

why would we expect that anything good can come out of PDP...beside GEJ doesnt strike as the kind of fellow who will for once jettison the cabal and stand up for what is right and just for an egalitarian society...pray! this man does not have the capacity and courage to guide the ship of state...most unfortunate!

DEAL 2015: LET’s RECLAIM

DEAL 2015: LET’s RECLAIM NIGERIA BACK

Support:
- Buhari/Ngige Ticket
- Fashola for Senate President
- A credible south-south man for Speaker
- Dora Akunyili as SGF
- Tunde Bakare as AGF and Minister of Justice
- Nuhu Ribadu or Buba Marwa as Head of War Against Corruption.
- A Credible middle-belt (North central) man as Chief Justice of Federation

Major Opposition parties (APGA, CPC and ACN) should come together to make this work. Let’s end all these drama.

Re: Amorphous Borvines abound......

@Damocles, I am not surprised by your comments about cleansing Nigeria what i am surprised is your level of your intelligence regarding Buhari. You see, it is an insult to compare Buhari to Jonathan, even worse if you think GEJ is better. I laugh. I believe so much in Nigeria but with people like you around and with access to the Internet is worrisome. I wonder what you discuss with your siblings or kids if you have any. What is killing our country is corruption and it is being perpetrated by the elite most of whom are civilians like you. The Military were able to organize coups and rule because some civilians sponsors them some of these people are ruling Nigeria today. Most PDP memeber are crooks and convicted criminal, your President is also a confirm criminal. Last time i checked noone has been able to convict Buhari of any criminal offence apart from using his Military might to jail corrupt politicians without proper trial whic h is acceptible in a Military Regime.

Baboons and snoopy dogs are out again

See the problem with Nigeria ? It's very very sad indeed to have the likes of Buhari open their mouths here without checking the relics of their past draconian rule.What do these clowns in CPC take us for baboon and snoopy dogs? bUhari sacked over 1m civil servants to celebrate his first year in office. As if that was not enough, he reintroduced tuition fees which were abolished in 1975. Is that the type of person who should examine the great achievements of Jonathan within the last one year? Well CPC should be told tht Nigeria populated by humans with a sound memory and not baboon and snoopy dogs.

U don't know anything

Mr Jerry, please go back and check Nigeriaworld history cos all these u mention were implemented by obasanjo not buhari. Stop being a tribalist and face the fact.

Amorphous Borvines abound......

" I'm not a fan of GEJ but he's better than a hundreds of blood thirsty Buhari's". This was uttered by one of the earlier commentators on this topic, a gentleman that goes by the moniker, Olekun. Comtemplate this statement, and you will understand the kind of individuals that Nigeria has the misfortune to call its citizens. The clown prince is not just allowing this unprecedented looting but has actually participated in it. This why only BLOOD can purify Nigeria. The foundation of the New Nigeria must be built on the ashes of the looters & betrayers(north & south). We are not distracted by the coerced north/south friction. We know who the enemies of Nigeria are, and they must simply perish at the designated hour. no amount of infantile tribalism can deter the looters downfall

You lied, obasanjo remove the

You lied, obasanjo remove the subsidy on free meal inour schools not buhari, you remember Ali must go right? & again buhari is not blood thirsty, he is a gentle man ,a man of honour & intergrity, a man that loves his country and refuse to steal from her even when he had several opportunity to.

jonather the hitler of nigeria

We are not talking about failure bt the contageous deasis that befall my country, we need anti virus to cutail the impact of chief sponsore of boko haram jonathan . His 1 year score card are as follow 1. Boko haram intergration to wage war against innocent nigerian appointing CAN president as chief press secretary to the distroying mortive 2 deviding nigeria along religious line for political gain 3 sethematic looting of nigerian money 4 incoporating arm robbers into political wing of BH to create harvoc to our country5 increse in electricity tariff ,removal of fuel subsidy politicization of security challenges 6 this animal call bad luck should go and lead in zoo becouse he is equally animal

CPC banza

A group of nameless, faceless idiots, who think dancing to the devils tune is better then saving souls.

MAKE PEACE and not war. Seek new answers to old problems but not follow a foolish believe of invisability. No man is an Island. An long tie nor fit produce more food.

Libarate yourselve from the mental slavery of wants (cars you don't produce. plane you don't make and china man goods you can not verifiy standards) Make a stardard for yourselve that is based on your own reaility. Stop follow follow, Nigeria has a unique situation that requires a unity solution. Wake up

BUHARI IS A BIG FOOL!

Gen. Buhari should go and cover his head in shame. he has not been able to organise his party and settle the internal wranglings rocking the party all these while, he and his party are busy threatening bloodshed and massacre. A man whose house is on fire and lacks the guts and knowhow to quench it wants to rule a big country like Nigeria. does Buhari think we are herds of Cow that he wants to rule? he is big fool who has no shame. i bet him, he will never rule this country in a civilian clothes. he will never rule this country, never!

Bastards in Power

I hope some disgruntled military officers will rise up one day and kill off all these animals in power.

GEJ is a desaster

The CPC made an understatement of this admininstration, to me the GEJ regimes seems to be confused and totally run out of ideas on how to move the nation forward, curruption, unemployment, poverty, insecurity etc are order of the day. EFCC seems to have reduced its mandate to a child play by arresting and prosecuting people for a N3 million business despute whereas subsidy thieves that stole almost N2 Trillion are roaming the street and just of recent the Malabu oil payment scandal.

CPC THIEF AND HUNGARY FOR POWER

I wonder why CNPP always antagonizes PDP without any performance records to show for their incumbent office holders (Governor(s), Senator(s), Local Government Chairmen, House of Representative). Naija Politicians are not faithful. All what they want is power to enrich themselves. CPC=PDP=ACN=ANPP. All of them are bunch of thieves.

This is more like it!

This is better politics coming from the CPC, instead of their usual brand of Politics of threats of bloodshed and bloodbath. An OPPOSITION is meant to stimulate governance and offer constructive criticisms and point out areas where governance is failing or lacking. An Opposition must highlight these things and show that they are a credible alternative, and also SHOW GOOD EXAMPLE. And not threaten bloodshed and spoil for violence and bloodbath all the time.

We await the day the CPC will come out to CONDEMN BOKO HARAM AND THEIR SENSELESS VIOLENCE AND MASSACRES! Credit to the CPC, this once!

CPC, check your own log!

While the Jonathan's Govt can be said to have underperformed or performed below average, I don't think the CPC and their cohorts that planned to make the country UNGOVERNABLE have helped. The bombings, massacre and carnage have been a huge distraction.

I hope the CPC controlled state is performing brilliantly and it's a shining example of good governance. Otherwise, it smacks of hypocrisy!

BTW, blame the Local Govts/States for Basic education failures. In a FEDERALISM, states and Local Governments are responsible for Secondary and Primary Education. Blame them mostly for the poor results!
