Sambo is a complete dunce. Even a blind man could see that at the tortoise like pace Yar'Adua was going even at the beginning before he became extremely ill, he would have achieved very little in 8 years, whether in electricity or any other area.

Even the few steps taken by the GEJ administration so far show more seriousness about tackling the electricity problem than his predecessor's administration.

wellmax: Yar’adua Would’ve Fixed Power Problem – Sambo

Vice-President Namadi Sambo, on Tuesday, said the illness and eventual death of late President Umaru Yar’Adua denied Nigerians the benefits of being led by a leader who saw himself as a servant.

He said Yar’Adua’s seven-point agenda and the emergency he declared in the power sector would have solved the lingering electricity problem in the country if not for his death.

Sambo made the observation during the public presentation of a book titled, ‘The Servant Leader: 2-3 Years Presidential Watershed of late President Umar Yar’Adua’, in Abuja.

“His seven-point agenda was coherent and many felt that when that was faithfully implemented, it would be the answer to the myriad of problems plaguing the nation and that it would remove the nation from the quagmire of incessant darkness into light,” Sambo said.

The vice-president said as an apostle of servant leadership, Yar’Adua was genuinely committed to serving Nigerians meritoriously until death cut short his desire.

He said, “The late President popularised the concept of servant leadership in Nigeria.

“It is a generally held belief that the late Yar’Adua had wanted to genuinely and meritoriously serve the Nigerian people up till the end, but his illness and eventual death cut short this avowed intention and service to the nation.”

Sambo recalled that as a servant leader, Yar’Adua expressed love for all Nigerians and showed genuine affection for all without discrimination or bias.

Describing him as a listening leader, the vice-president recalled that Yar’Adua, in many instances, reversed certain key government decisions.

According to Mr V.P below are his assessment of former HOS and his boss, uncle Joe.


Yaradua

Servant leader
listened to people
Reversed bad govt policies, including reduction in pump price of petrol twice

Jonathan

Not here to serve but to defraud people and enrich himself and his political associates
Does his own will and never care what people say or feel
Pursues agenda that inflicts pains on masses, increase in fuel price, electricity supply worsened and they are still talki g of increasing tarrif.

I hope he (VP) and PDP understand the implication of this

honeric01: Bloody 2015 Controversy: CPC Replies Jonathan On Buhari:


By Rotimi Fashakin
The Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, has noted the response of Dr Goodluck Jonathan, as President of Nigeria, to the altruistic statement credited to our National Leader, General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) wherein he had stated inter-alia dire consequences for the perpetual riggers of our electoral process in 2015. In the statement signed by Dr. Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President on Media, GMB was grotesquely characterized as a sectional leader.

First, GMB has been out of office as Head of Government for about 28 years, yet his relevance to the Nigerian nation is something firmly acknowledged by a broad spectrum of Nigerians, including his adversaries. As Head of State, his Oil Minister was Professor Tam David-West, a Kalabari man in Rivers state. As a Leader, he created the ambience for his ministers to work unobtrusively and devoid of executive meddlesomeness. But what do we find with Dr Goodluck Jonathan? All the appointees as Oil ministers in his two-year reign thus far as President of Nigeria have been Nigerians of Ijaw extraction, like himself!



Second, in October 1, 2010, there was a bomb blast during the year’s independence anniversary celebrations, with attendant deaths of many Nigerians. Without waiting for any preliminary report from the Security Agencies, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, as President, told a traumatized Nation, “it is not MEND!” Meanwhile, MEND is the name for the militant group from Dr Good-luck Jonathan’s ethnic extraction that had in the immediate past waged relentless and potent insurgency against the Nigerian state but had been placated with more slice of the Nation’s resources ceded to the region. Indeed, MEND impugned the President’s statement and admitted responsibility.



Third, so far as President of Nigeria, Dr Good-luck Jonathan has shown very generous affinity for Nigerians of Ijaw stock in terms of appointments and promotions in the Federal Public sector. There is a marked lopsidedness that smacks of clannishness and ethnocentrism by the President!



On Corruption and sleazy tendency, the Jonathan administration transcends all others before it! Nigerians are still befuddled by the impeachable show of arbitrariness by the regime in expending N2.67Trillion on fuel subsidy instead of the appropriated N240Billion in the 2011 appropriation act. As expected, the regime has attempted all manner of subterfuge to give Executive cover for the indicted people in the scam, who were the bank-rollers of the President’s electioneering campaign. Could it be that the missing money was funneled deliberately to the Jonathan Presidential Campaigns, with the acquiescence of the President?



GMB was quoted as saying that the Jonathan-led Federal Government is the greatest Boko-Haram. Understandably, this elicited awful response from the President. In a jejune, puerile, and very pedestrian communication, the presidential spokesman defined Boko-Haram as “Western education is sin” and went on to posit the administration’s investment in Education. How awkwardly inane could that be?!



It is common knowledge that Boko-Haram has become the euphemism for subtlety in devious schemes that cause mass killings of the innocents! As GMB aptly stated, Boko Haram has three variants, with varying degrees of severity and murderous content: the original Boko-haram that seeks to avenge the extra-judicial killing of its Leader by the Nigeria Police; the Boko Haram that pursues criminality for monetary gains and of course, the Political Boko-haram that is bent on setting the stage for ethno-religious pogrom in the Nigerian nation. It is the Political Boko Haram, with its extremely lethal content, that the Jonathan-led Federal Government represents!

·

In January 2012, Dr Good-luck Jonathan told a bewildered nation, still smarting from murderous Bombings, that his government has been infiltrated by Boko Haram.

·

In February 2012, a serving PDP senator from Borno South (Mohammed Ali Ndume) was arrested for being a member of Boko Haram.

·

In March 2012, Ndume deposed to an affidavit before a Federal High Court wherein he stated that Vice-President Namadi Sambo was aware of his activities with Boko Haram.

·

In April 2012, General Andrew Owoeye Azazi , the National Security Adviser, averred that there was indisputable proof that Boko Haram is PDP. As things stand, President Good-luck Jonathan is the national leader of PDP.



· In April 2012, Henry Okah (while standing trial on Terrorism charges) deposed to an affidavit before a South African court that President Good-luck Jonathan was the sponsor of the October 1, 2010 bombing at Eagle square. It is on record that as governor of a Niger-delta state, Dr Good-luck Jonathan (together with his brother governors) had used the MEND to command the attention of the Nigerian state.

· As a Party, we are aware of the role played by Jonathan’s PDP in the way the People’s post-electoral angst (at the subversion of their electoral will) was turned into murderous ethno-religious mayhem.

· We are also aware about how the Jonathan administration has consistently used the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) under the leadership of his fellow Niger-delta Nigerian, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, to demonize GMB in the despicable attempt to veil the murderous intent of the administration.

Meanwhile, with the hullaballoo that Dr Jonathan and his PDP elements have unwittingly caused within the Polity, should it be interpreted that there is a real effort towards ensuring that the 2015 election is also rigged as before in giving vim to the PDP Leaders’ claim of ruling Nigeria for 60 years? As a Nation, we are witnesses to the manner in which rigged elections have foisted on the Nation cluelessness in governance and rapacious impudence; it is indeed a dreary road to tread.



We insist that it is never ignoble to lose elections because President Abraham Lincoln, before being reputed to be the best American President that ever existed, was known to have lost elections several times. GMB, though lost Presidential elections three times to the rigging collusion of the Nigerian presidency and the electoral umpire, took the loss each time (like Abraham Lincoln) with equanimity!



In the meantime, we shall continue to trumpet the sterling qualities of the Buhari brand which is still a rarity among the Political players in our nation’s season of anomie. We stand unwaveringly by the statement credited to GMB!

God bless Nigeria.

So, what are you, Sambo, and your Boss doing to solve this problem of lack of constant electricity supply, at least in order to sustain the legacy Yar' Adua dreamed of leaving for the Nation?

In no other way has the current Administration dispalyed its inept attitude than in the area of power supply, oh and security.

The Obasanjo Administration is remembered for the revolution it introduced in the Telecom Sector. Will this Government be remembered as the one that finally laid PHCN to rest and with it our hopes for constant and reliable electricity supply?

Right now little children are developing boils all over their bodies, while Adults have invasive heat-rashes all over them coupled with the inability to sleep at night, companies are folding and relocating to other countries all due to the lack of electricity supply.

When will Sambo and his boss wake up and take the bull of power outage by the horns and restore constant electricity supply? angry

^^juman: If fixing Nigeria's problem is too big for Jonathan, then he should step aside (No bi by force). He should stop holding Nigerians hostage and drowning us at the same time.

For Yar'Adua: as ill as he was he proved he was a lot better than Jona, see his antecedents:
- He is the only Governor in Nigeria who left a verifiable Billions of Naira when handing over. (GEJ ate up and left debt)
- He reduced fuel price twice down to N65. (GEJ in one swoop raised it to N95, against the will of everyone)
- Yar'Adua supported Due Process, at least two Governors in his party that lost elections he actively supported the implementation of the ruling. (GEJ single-highhandedly campaigned and installed the current Bayelsa Governor).
- When Yar'Adua was elected, he acknowledged the discrepancies in his election, setup a panel to recommend how to eliminate such. (When GEJ took over he watered down the report, even left out the major recommendations, only to give awards to those that helped produced his Magic Numbers at the polls. Today those that were caught with self-printed election materials are all free and smiling)
