NLC Says Jonathan Is Too Dull For Nigeria

The Nigerian Labour Congress on Thursday lambasted President Goodluck Jonathan, describing him as a "dull leader" who lacks the capacity to govern a complex country such as Nigeria.

Speaking in Abuja at the launch of a book ‘Time to reclaim Nigeria’ written by activisit Chido Onumah, the organisation's Assistant General Secretary, Denja Yaqub, said Mr. Jonathan was not deep enough to understand the implication of some policies he is trying to foist on Nigerians.

Mr. Yaqub, who represented the NLC's Acting General Secretary, Owei Lakemfa at the event, also said labour was ready to pay the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that government’s decision to remove subsidy on petroleum products does not see the light of the day.

“President Jonathan was voted into power by Nigerians, but we have lost him to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and such other bodies," he said. "The fight for fuel subsidy removal has been on since 1986 and many people have lost their lives in this struggle, we will never waver."

He also accused the president of lacking adequate knowledge on the subsidy matter based on his response on the issue at the National Assembly, wondering why he is determined to go ahead with the policy.

“President Jonathan has failed woefully and he does not even understand the subsidy issue as he cannot give an intelligent answer on it at the National Assembly. I am glad Nigerians have already started mobilizing themselves to hit the streets and protest without waiting for labour,” he said.

Speaking along the same line, national secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Buba Galadima, argued that rather than talk about subsidy, what the president needs to bother about is the regime of incompetence and corruption pervading government at all levels.

“How will the removal of the so-called subsidy translate to transformation? Nigerians are angry over this decision and the only ones that are not angry are the ones benefiting from the system,” Mr. Galadima said

The CPC leader further accused the president of taking the issue of fuel subsidy removal too personal.

” If the president truly believes that sovereignty lies with the people, he should know that he is holding the office in trust for them."

The event, described by the compere as “the gathering of trouble makers” had as chief host Mr. Nuhu Ribadu, the presidential candidate of the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria in the 2011 election while Hussaini Abdu, Actionaid's country director, was guest lecturer.

In his paper, Mr. Abdu also condemned the decision to remove subsidy while at the same time making life unbearable for citizens by raising electricity tariff, reinstating toll gates, and retrenching workers.

He noted that the title of the book could not have come at a better time than now because the country had been hijacked by five groups of people he listed to include, “corrupt and rapacious politicians, imperial technocrats, international financial institutions, multinational corporations and parasitic business class.”

On his part, Mr. Ribadu said he was he aligning himself with the position of his party, the ACN, which had issued a terse statement condemning the government for trying to cut the subsidy on fuel.

Some speakers at the event spoke on the widespread insecurity in the country. They were however of the view that allocating the lion’s share of the 2012 budget to security is not the solution but good governance.

"In a country in which people are struggling to get the next meal, and one person will steal over N500billion and go scot-free, no amount of money voted for security will guarantee peace other than social justice,” Mr. Galadima said.

Some of those who attended the event were Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola, who was represented by Idiat Babalola; a fomer presidential aide, Uba Sani; S.Oronsanye, who represented the president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities; a chieftain of the the Congress for Progressive Change Farouk Adamu Aliyu; and Abdullahi Ribadu, former vice chancellor, Federal University of Technology, Yola.

NLC was wrong in branding our president with such term.

I bet they could not have done the same for IBB and co that actually destroyed the country.

That is a big lie. Pascal Bafyau sold out; it was Unilag and Uniben students that carried IBB's coffin. I WAS THERE.
frank Kokori was the only genuine guy in any union, the rest collected Ghana must go.

I still think we should show some respect to our president. All the insult rained on him would not give him the positive atmosphere to think straight and do the right thing.

Iirc, Pascal Bafyau did sell out eventually, they always sell out. Well except for Frank Kokori and a few others from groups like CD campaign for democracy: Beko Ransome Kuti, Falana, Gani, CLO, Ayo Obe and co

Unilag, Uniben, Ife and a lot of other Uni students piled up pressure too.

Looking back, those folks did risk a whole lot sha, considering we had no quick internet videos, Twitter pics and Other tools. Damn!

But as per carrying Coffin, I think that was done virtually everywhere in the SW at least, generally in the South. IBB and Abacha were hated across the board really.
