Jonathan, A Trainee President - ACN •ACN Only Celebrates People’s Tragedies - PDP

THE Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has described President Goodluck Jonathan as a trainee president.
In a statement issued in Ilorin on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party wondered how else one can describe the administration’s lack of capacity to be proactive or respond in a timely and robust manner to the recent catalogue of woes and national calamities.

In the opinion of the party, the continued bungling of the Boko Haram insurgency which is harvesting more deaths almost on a daily basis, the unstoppable carnage on the Nigerian roads, the executive somersaults of the administration on policy issues, and in general the slow, unfocused and uncertain responses of government to issues depict a government on internship.

According to the ACN, the closure of the Lokoja-Abuja highway which has cut off Abuja, the federal capital city due to flooding of roads and bridges on the Abuja-Lokoja highway, signposts the extent of the country’s decayed national infrastructure and exposes the incapable hands entrusted to salvage them.

However, even worse is the fact that the president has not deemed it fit to comment on this disaster, neither has there been any visit by a federal minister or any co-ordinated response to the disaster from the central government, the ACN statement said.
On a weekend of multiple disasters such as the Lokoja flooding, the bomb blast in Bauchi, and the two weeks of non-stop flooding all around the country, the ACN alleged that the president’s handlers showed more concern in informing Nigerians about President Jonathan’s trip to the United Nations General Assembly summit than explaining or proposing a co-ordinated response to these calamities.

The disposition of President Jonathan’s administration to the welfare of Nigerians, the ACN said, confirmed the widely held belief that the welfare or well-being of Nigerians is definitely not a priority to his government, otherwise why could the president not find time to visit even by helicopter the disaster zones to at least give hope to the victims or their relations, the party queried.

Very unfortunate that parties in Nigeria resort to this wasteful bickering. Jonathan may not have issued a response (we do not know,), and YES I won't condone it because there were victims, however, calling him a trainee president is just ridic. Do you go on some special presidential training and certification to become a president?

IMO, I just think ACN is just seeking attention and are trying to capitalize or should I say take advantage of the situation. ACN is as bad as PDD, perfect case of pot calling kettle black. undecided undecided

Indeed, a trainee President, at the end of his tenure in office, he will become a Professional Leader and will prove it in his next four year term in office as the President, and Commander in-Chief of Federal Republic of Nigeria.

And I'm guessing their candidate, Nuhu Ribadu, is tested and trusted? GEJ may be clueless, but Ribadu is no veteran in this position either. And let's be real, PDP would've attacked ACN if it was the other way around like we see in the SW.

When OBJ was there, people called him names, now he's an hero
GEJ is trying his best. At least, I can see some level of transparency, sincerity and improvement in his governance.

Sentiments aside, GEJ wasn't prepared for where he found himself. The Nigerian presidency is not where you learn on the job. The most annoying thing about GEJ is that his mind is set on contesting 2015 elections when he is yet to prove to Nigerians that he deserves another term.
I think ACN calling him trainee president is just being modest.

What do you think the opposition party should be doing if not taking pot shots like this?

And you admit that PDP and by extension the president is bad.

ACN is very hypocritical. I strongly believe that an ACN candidate will be worse than GEJ led administration if voted into the office of the President. All ACN is doing is to win the sympathy of the masses to pave way for their 2015 election bid. Who is deceiving who? RUBBISH

So going by your own theory, "Nigeria is a scam= BAD", I guess that makes you and I bad or scammers right?

Is it not ACN with their blabbing again, they should produce a certified presidential candidate now. All they have in their party are rogues, who are waiting for opportunity to get into ASO rock and loot us away. Which I know is very impossible for them.

Tell me an expert president that you know of in Nigeria's history?

I guess you missed the whole point of my statement - calling a sitting president a "trainee president" is just beyond baffling. It begs the question under normal scrutiny, is there a school, or training course or certification for presidency?

You have forgotten quickly that learning comes in different forms and fashion, people adapt to different things in their own ways. I'm to believe that he wasn't prepared right? Rather than him taking his own steps @ his own time? Like I stated before, he not doing the right thing by addressing the situation was WRONGFUL, nonetheless, the attention seeking party is double wrong of taking advantage of the situation given the causalities involved.

You call what GEJ is doing as "trying his best?"
No one tasked with leadership of any nation is ever told to try his best. D0 THE WORK is what is advocated. Unfortunately GEJ is not interested in learning how to govern nigeria. A classical example is hiding the illness of his wife same thing Turai did for her husband.
