Nigerians call for Jonathan in reaction to economic anomaly


Nigerians call for Jonathan in
reaction to economic anomaly


Nigerians have had to weigh their options,
with some seeking alternatives, following
the recent report of President Muhammadu
Buhari’s administration failing to pay
special allowance to security operatives
attached to the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
A disaffection is brewing among security
operatives at the Aso Villa in Abuja, over
unpaid allownaces
According to the report, the development is
causing dissatisfaction among the security
personnel. Prior to when the present
administration came into power, all the
security agents at the Villa under former
President Goodluck Jonathan enjoyed the
allowance up until March, 2015, while his
administration left those of April and May,
2015, unpaid.
Some Nigerians have aired their views on
the rather controversial issue, below are
their thoughts.
Stanley Nnabuagha said: “Some say I rely on
luck, but was it luck that got rid of fuel
queues, revived our textile industries, rescued
our banking sector, ensured total radar
coverage for Nigeria, is reviving our rail
infrastructure or expanded the economy by
over 8% making Nigeria the 4th fastest
growing economy in the world? Those are the
result of hard work. Only hard work can make
Nigeria work – GEJ”

Onyebuchi Nwafor said: “We’re missing you
the immediate past president, Dr Goodluck
Ebele Jonathan,the one and only true
democratic president this country ever had, the
silent achiever.”
Irem Kelechi attempted hitting President
Buhari and the APC below that belt with his
statement. He said: “And he said he is not a
one chance president? Keep promising
Nigerians. All promises cancelled (APC).”
According to Emmanuel Tom, “Those who
voted for Buhari, have more now to regret”.
However, some other Nigerians did not see
the situation as one that should be yardstick
for comparing Jonathan and Buhari.
Some even went as much as sighting the
trending issue of the missing Chibok girls
that were abducted about 2-years ago. They
claimed that the incident occurred under the
watch of Jonathan and as reports have it, it
was a lack of interest on the part of the
immediate past administration that made the
situation linger this long.
The present APC government still has some
time to prove themselves worthy of the
votes that brought them into power, do you
think they would deliver? Would they out-
perform the PDP administration that had
been in power for about 16 years?
Let us know your thoughts on this very
contentious issue.
