Alamieyeseigha's Pardon: Jonathan Owes Nobody Apology - Okupe by Joey82(m): 10:12am On Mar 13, 2013
President Goodluck Jonathan has confirmed the granting of presidential pardon to a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, and a few other ex-convicts.

PREMIUM TIMES had broken the strory of the pardon while the meeting was underway Tuesday morning.

We also reported details of the proceedings minutes after the meeting ended.

Presidential spokespersons had gone underground for most of yesterday in what appeared a ploy to dodge media enquiry on the controversial pardon of a man who stole his people blind while governor.

But Mr. Jonathan, speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Doyin Okupe, has now confirmed our report.

He said he has no apology for his action.

Mr. Okupe spoke on Channels TV breakfast show, Sunrise.

“That is an action that has been taken by the National Council of States and I have no apology for that.” Mr. Jonathan said. “We must begin to respect and honour our institutions. I don’t need to defend the action that has been taken.”

When reminded that the action had created the impression that the government was not serious about the war against corruption, Mr. Jonathan said, “It is not all decisions parents take that are palatable for their kids. But with time they will realize that their parents are right.”

He said pardoning Mr. Alamieyeseigha was in order as the former Bayelsa governor had suffered enough.

“A man was deposed. He was hounded, tried and jail. What is wrong with giving pardon to a remorseful sinner?

“How come granting pardon to him has become an aberration? Is it because he is from Bayelsa? Is it from he is from South-South? Is it because he is connected to Mr. President?”

Another "I don't give a damn" utterance. When will Nigerians accept the crudeness of this man? You vote for corruption and mediocrity personified yet you are expected a sophisticated political reformer. Comical.

Nobody expects/demands apology for any mediocrity. Of course the apology won't right the mediocrity but submerge the mediocre in a deeper pool of hypocrisy and cluelessness.
GEJ! Continue to swim in the pool of cluelessness and mediocrity, we are enjoying your stunt.

How is granting a treasury looter amnesty [another word for presidential pardon] not an aberration? embarassed embarassed
Something for which you need to hide your head in shame for is now a given undecided undecided
Who said anything about Alams been from Bayelsa or not?
No far from it, he's a thief of state resources, whether repentant or not

The likes of Doyin Okupe and those who see evil and support it. Karma will one day meet up with you and you will pay for your evil misdeeds. If it does not get to you it will get to your children. Doyin has sold his soul and his morals. The contempt and impunity through which he talks is just disgusting. He would not be in power forever. One day he would leave that position Then and only then he would realise his stu.pidity. He should take a cue form Aaondaka. I am very angry indeed angry.

Alamieyeseigha was a master to Jonathan. He single-handedly picked Jonathan to be his Deputy Governor. He was the person that made Jonathan to be what he is today. But can we say because you do not want to bite the hands that fed you, you should ignore the voices of the masses who are kicking against it.?
Jonathan has betrayed the votes that elected HIM and he need to be voted out. If it was to be in China, Thailand or Singapore, people like Alamieyeseigha, Bode George, Tafa Balogun, etc would have been hanged. what manner of message are we passing across to our youtpardonhs? steal Billions of naira and get presidential?

Pardon everybody. Open the gates of the prisons. In fact let is as a nation 'turn the other cheek' in this corruption war. Reassign Bode George to NPA, Alams should be sworn in as Bayelsa Governor again, Cecila Ibru and Akingbola should head their banks again. Also, those who have murdered people should be given a chance to murder another member of the victim's family. Yay! Pardons and forgiveness for all!

Now, this is the most annoying statement I've heard in a long while, now I see reasons to the bloody revolution some Nigerians have been clamouring for , like seriously.."GEJ don't owe anybody apologies"? and for him to make a stewpid comparison of rating and attributing Nigerians as kids while GEJ is the father stimulates my anger cells erupting with reckless abandon ..let's take the bull by the horns people not with the legs or we're damn doomed.
