Jonathan Responds To Obasanjo’s Plot To Install Northern President In 2015

By SaharaReporters, NY

A source close to President Goodluck Jonathan told SaharaReporters that the president has commissioned a group of political pundits to begin to counteract former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s reported secret plans to work for the emergence of a Northerner as president in 2015.

 

The source added that the Jonathan’s team is charged with strategizing on the best maneuvers to contain Mr. Obasanjo’s moves.

 

The source added that Mr. Jonathan did not yet have a full understanding of where Mr. Obasanjo stands in the crisis tearing apart the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but added that the president has decided not to take chances by ignoring the former president. The Northern members of the team set up by the president have been mandated to lead the first stage of Mr. Jonathan’s campaigns and consultations across the entire Northern states.

 

“Some of the president’s pundits have swung into action in the ‘core’ Northern states of Sokoto, Kano, Jigawa, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina and northern Kaduna,” our source disclosed.

 

He added that Jerry Gana, Jonathan Silas Zwingina, Abdulkadir Kure, and Isaiah Balat were among those assigned to run the early stages of the president’s campaign in the Middle Belt. “Another group led by Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and Barrister Ahmed Gulak is working on the same mission in the North-East axis,” he said.

 

The source revealed that a key strategy of the president’s group was to seek the support of top Islamic and Christian clerics in the North. The well-funded presidential group is offering millions of naira to selected clerics in return for their political sympathy for Mr. Jonathan’s reelection campaign.

 

Our source stated that Mr. Jonathan had decided not to remain passive about Mr. Obasanjo’s antics. “Mr. President is aware of Chief Obasanjo’s previous antecedents. Look at [Mr. Obasanjo’s] close relationship with the arrowheads of the rebellion in the PDP. He is the one who made Sule Lamido, Aliyu Babangida of Niger and Wammako of Sokoto. It’s the same thing with Nyako in Adamawa State.””

 

The source added: “We gathered that Obasanjo is having serious problems with the IBB [Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida] and Abdulsalami circle that made it possible for him to be president in 1999. And we know that Chief Obasanjo wants to settle the Umaru Yar’Adua saga that led to the emergence of Jonathan. He thinks it is best to help install a Northern President in 2015. And he is also not happy with Jonathan’s style and some power blocks influencing the president.”

OH NIGERIA !

IT IS LEFT TO NIGERIANS TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING.ONE THING SHOULD BE NOTED , IF TWO ELEPHANTS ARE FIGHTING IT IS THE GRASS THAT WILL SUFFER IT. ALL THAT IS OBVIOUS AND VIVID IS THAT NIGERIA IS SPIRALING DOWN A ROAD THAT IF IT DOESN'T STOP SOONER GOD HELP US. IF THE LEADERS CAN'T BE THERE FOR US WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING THEM THERE. NO WONDER 90% OF THE YOUTHS ARE TAKING NATIONALITY IN ANOTHER COUNTRY.

Toyin is an ignorant yariba

Toyin is an ignorant yariba thug.
Babalu is 100% accurate in his analysis.
It is true that all the evils killing Nigeria come from Obasanjo and Yoruba. Obasanjo imposed Yaradua and Jonathan after he could not lead properly. After he looted the country blind and murdered many Yariba politicians, Obasanjo decided that Nigeria must be destroyed due to his failure to secure third term.

@Toyin

Well said.
Babalu & co are government jobbers.

obviously no need asking "are

obviously no need asking "are you guys fools?" coz its noisy in your inferiority-mindset expression. what has the article got to do with tribalism? una just dey go attacking at any Yoruba name highlighted in news! Are you any peaceful than southwest? you've seen a Yoruba group constituting genocidal nuisance? Certainly you were never told this before, so, listen: Restlessness and power-hunger in Nigeria is traced back to January 15, 1966, when Chukwuma K. Nzeogwu led the first ever-military coup in Nigeria that led to the death of Sir Ahmadu Bello, tagged "an Igbo coup" which led to Major-General J. T. Ununakwe Aguiyi Ironsi's sworning-in as the Military Head of State of Nigeria. So, bunch of dumb-ass, ask your fathers how peace-loving they are again.....well, its obvious from you seeds!

It is good that some people

It is good that some people know that Nigeria was amalgamated by Lord Lugard in 1914. We remind you that Lugard did not seek for our opinions when he did his illegal act. He was an illegal alien when he came to our lands. He did not come in legally, therefore the amalgamation was done by force. Lugard was not a messenger of God. He was a human being who came to our indigenous lands with wicked and illegal motives. By the end of 2014, you will learn a valuable lesson - you will rule yourself alone in Yoruba land; you will never rule over our lands again. Britain and the rest of the world will never support you in a war against us – so then if you still want to war with us, then be ready for us. We must go out of Nigeria in 2014, and nothing you do or say will stop us. That useless, murderous country must end in 2014.

If you had brains, Nigeria

If you had brains, Nigeria would be developed today. Your results speak volumes about your capability. Even the Hausa man did far better than you. You will rule again only in a Yoruba Nation where you can continue to kill each other in your characteristic way. Jonathan is the last president you will have over us.

The media has been awash with reports of killing and intimidation of perceived or real political opponents in Ekiti. The general perception is that supporters of Governor Kayode Fayemi are behind these dastardly acts. This is one politically masterminded killing too many.

TRIBAL & STUPIDLY SELFISH POLITICS

Why does the president have to come from the east, west, north or south? WHY NOT JUST ELECT A PRESIDENT BASED ON HIS MERIT AND POPULARITY? when is Nigeria going to grow out of this tribal, sectional and stupidly myopic politics of national shamelessness? Hasn't this practice set us back enough?

Nigeria has gone beyond that amalgamation of the north and south by Lord Lugard in 1914. comprising of 36 states, it is now artificially grouped into six geo-political zones. why do we keep talking about the north as if it is only one state? is it because Ahmadu Bello named his political party THE NORTHERN PEOPLE'S CONGRESS?

To the average "southern" Nigerian( including, unfortunately, even, the press), the "north" comprises of Hausa-Fulani people. Since Nigeria has more than 300 tribes and ethnic groupings, election into political offices should be based, strictly, on merit, performance and popularity -irrespective of where you come from.

Babalu is 120% accurate.

Babalu is 120% accurate. Yoruba is 100% populated with Obasanjo-like thugs. You cannot prove a negative, but you can try to disprove it. Show us a good Yoruba leader; show us a Yoruba leader from the past 100 years who is not like Obasanjo. You can't. Yoruba is the problem of our people in Africa, period

@Babalu, please give us more

@Babalu, please give us more of your line of thinking. Adedibu was not an Igbo man. He impeached governors in Yoruba land and no Yoruba thought he was doing anything wrong, even Soyinka supported him. Peter Fayose and Segun Oni are not Hausa. They murdered sleep and people in Ekiti and they are yet to go to jail. Yoruba is a culture where murdering people is a norm of the culture. I have more to come.

Everything is from God, so you have to say by god grase

Mr. T. Johnson, you have

Mr. T. Johnson, you have spoken.

@Babalu, pls learn how to

@Babalu, pls learn how to talk on public newspaper and your stupid reference, Yoruba is not a problem of Nigeria, whatever any politician is doing, it is strictly politics nothing more than that. you have gut to condemn entire tribe because your tribe is not on Nigeria map. stop this bad attitude

OBJ's antics.

It looks like some people who comment on issues think of nothing but tribalism.Does Obasanjo alone make the Yoruba race? Can't these set of tribal biggots learn about individuality? Let it sink into their thick skull that Obasanjo is a Yorubaman and not the entire Yoruba race.
Come to think of it,is it not the same Obasanjo that made Jonathan?Now that the horse they rode to power turns round to fight them,it becomes the Yoruba race.
With these kind of people who think of nothing but tribalism,i am afraid Nigeria can not get anywhere.

That's true, I agree wt u bro

That's true, I agree wt u bro

Yoruba is the evil killing us all - you know it!

This poster said it all - thanks for speaking my mind!

Obasanjo is the typical Yoruba – they are the albatross holding back the black Africans.

The murderer and his Yoruba co-travelers had their turn to restructure Nigeria. What did they do??

They went about pillaging the country and murdering people. Nigeria is now almost dead because of Yoruba.

That this murderer is still in the opinion that he will continue to destroy the nation is simply amazing.

The coming 2014 is truly the year of Armageddon in Nigeria – be prepared because everything in that country will be incinerated.

Dumbo will preside in Otuoke prison in 2015 !

Mr. confused Akpos1,

I thought you and your confused co-traveler Oleku claim Nigeria's amalgamation expires December 31 2014 so why are you bothered about the Presidency in 2015 ?

You are just a noise maker. Your fellow MEND thugs threatened all sorts if the terrorist Henry Okah is jailed by South Africa and yet they couldn't even burst a balloon after he was jailed. Not only would Dumbo be dumped in 2015, he will also end up in jail !

You would soon disappear like your fellow crumb catchers. They come and go once the crumbs stops. Where are your predecessors? fake lawyer OC, omoBendel thug, ifeanyi4democrazy ?

Re:A Northern President in 2015 is a direct invitation to war.

I have never seen somebody

I have never seen somebody who's so self centered like U. In ur statistics U know how to break d south into SE SW and SS but ur very doll to know that d is also into NE NW and N central. Nigeria has 6 geopolitical zones fool. Give us ur statistics into this 6 zones then we see d equity u r talking about.

@ TJohnson asked.... Will you buy a used car from OBJ?

@ TJohnson asked.... Will you buy a used car from OBJ?

Answer... Yesooo. OBJ sales really cheap stuffs. Check his record.

GEJ THE LAST AMN STANDING

WE ARE ALL AWARE OF THE ANTICS OF OBJ AND HIS COHORTS.LIKE IT OR LEAVE IT DR JONATHAN WILL RETURN TO ASO ROCK COME 2015.AFTER HIM WILL BE SEN.DAVID MARK AND THEN NGOZI IWEALA WILL TAKE OVER.NIGERIA IS WORKING

Left to the Supreme Court, Dumbo would be history...

@Anny & @HJC:
Not that I care so much about our junta-made Constitution, but it's all we've got at the moment to live by. There is a precedent in this case of Dumbo's eligibility to contest the 2015 elections in Lagos State and a Supreme Court ruling on it... guess what the court said? I don't believe in ignorant discourse, I believe in logical argument backed by documented facts... and facts cannot be argued!!

Back to Mr. Eze:
Mr. Eze dusted off the Lagos State case and rushed to court. He was cruising to victory when suddenly Dumbo's goons snatched and towed him to Kuje prison on charges of Raping his Wife! His lawyer was chased into German Embassy in Abuja and they promptly granted him and his entire village Asylum...

IQ Test:
Add 2+2 and guess what the Supreme Court would have ruled if Mr. Eze had made it before the Justices...
Clowns!!!

@ Babalu

@ Babalu: You are a certified loony!!! Is this discussion centred on tribe or religion? It is people like you that has minus zero cognition that always find solace in using tribalism to drive home your point. You are a terrible ignoramus! Was it the Yorubas that voted for Shagari in secod republic? Was it the Yorubas that voted for Tafawa Balewa in the first republic. Was it the Yorubas that voted for OBJ in 1999? You are a very poor student of history. It is evidently clear that you think with your foot.

@ Babalu: I want you to know that this forum is populated by sound minds with high cognition level and not touts like you that cannot offer sound, sensible and intellectual debate. Pls shut your stinking mouth!!!

WILL YOU BUY A USED CAR FROM OBJ?

My advice to Jonathan, do the right thing for Nigerians, and you won't need to worry about someone like OBJ, period. Sadly for us, Jonathan doesn't seem to be heeding that advice. Jonathan hasn't given Nigerians reasons to want him back in 2015. The handling of corruption cases under his watch will end up being his undoing in the end. As for OBJ, Nigerians will really be stupid to elect anybody that he present to them. OBJ is totally corrupt and not trustworthy. Will you buy a used car from OBJ? OBJ should get out of kingmaking business. His track record in this area has been dismal.

Can Nigerians simply ignore

Can Nigerians simply ignore OBJ and GEJ and elect somebody who will route out corruption by 2015. They have a common interest in preserving the rotten status quo

President Jonathan is so

President Jonathan is so ready to settle his way through 2015, an administration that is the embodiment of corruption.

Say it louder, and louder and

Say it louder, and louder and louder - Yoruba is the problem of Nigeria:

change that we can believe in

Aminu Tambuwal and Oby Ezekweseli for 2015!

Re: When will OBJ retire?

You have simply contradicted and even confused yourself. A man who couldn't control his political party was able to curtail OBJ's overbearing excesses and influence, you mean? Stop talking from both sides of the mouth, it's dangerous.

@Wahala read constitution upsidedown. Dumbo 2ndT 2015

@Wahala, sorry no vex o. Which constitution do you read? That of 1999? Take note that you must be reading a strange constitution. GEJ has only CONTESTED for office of PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA IN 2011, worn and was sworn in once based on the provisions of the 1999 constitution. He can vie for second term in 2015.
