POLITICAL UPDATES: “Nigerians Will Praise Me After Leaving Office” – President Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday said he did not expect Nigerians to shower praises on him while he is still in office. He said it was normal that public office holders would only be commended after leaving office by the time his achievements were being compared with others. Jonathan spoke while granting audience to a delegation from his home state, Bayelsa. Members of the delegation led by Governor Seriake Dickson were in the Presidential Villa, Abuja to felicitate with him on Christmas and New Year festivities. The President said notwithstanding the various challenges facing the country, he would do his best to make his people proud. He said, “I always say that I will not even expect praises now because hardly do people praise serving leaders. It is when you leave, people will begin to know. “When you leave, people will begin to compare what you have done over the period vis-a-vis what others
have done, then they will compare you with
whoever takes over. “Probably that is the time some people
will begin to say good about you. But I will do my best to make sure that we do
change things.


“We are trying to create enabling environment for our economy to thrive
irrespective of the challenges we are having in the petroleum sector and the
security challenges we have. “I will do my best so that by the time I
will leave, you will be able to say that when our son was there, he served the
country well so that one day, another son of Bayelsa may be given another
opportunity to serve Nigerians.”



Jonathan observed that it has become the norm worldwide for people to be
lambasting their leaders, especially on the social media.



He regretted that people are using different things that have been created
by people’s knowledge for negative purposes.



He cited an example of dynamite, saying the inventor regretted when he realised
the destructive purposes people have turned the item to.



The President added, “I assure you that I am here by the grace of God and with
the willingness of Nigerians. If Nigerians say I shouldn’t be here, I wouldn’t have
been here. We contested election in 2011 and Nigerians voted for us.
“I am your own, if I don’t do well, the shame will be on you. If I do well, you
will have some kind of pride. I will do
my best.

Second Term is yours Sir.

Blasphemy. The height of delusions. He says we'll praise him? Then let him go so we'll see. He's also a blatant liar. He's not trying to create and enabling environment but one which his cronies will thrive. An enabling environment for the economy would improve to do all possible and exhaust all machineries to improve the power situation and also improve security but it isn't so. He thinks some people are as dumb as he is. Also Putin is getting praises from his people and he hasn't left office, so is Merkel, so did Chavez when he was alive. His comments shows you just can't cure stupid.

I knew the problems of driving from Lagos to Benin City before now. I knew the difficulty of getting through from Okene to Abuja. it is a pleasurable sight to see Abuja at night from the airport with the lighting all over. More Federal Universities have been established and more Nigerians are admitted,.. more professors promoted and more lecturers hired. the rails are busy. I am praising him already

Yes i agree. In curruption even hilary clinton said jonathan's administration is the most currupt in the history of nigeria. Jones is practically incompitent. I wonder where he was when his boss yar'adua was alive. He never took over in his footsteps! Oga jones is practically a weak leader!
