Academic Documents Written By Goodluck Jonathan In 1985, At UniPort by Kenai: 1:01am On Dec 23, 2014
This thread was inspired by this post, from Dr. Hassan, requesting to see Goodluck Jonathan's thesis and publications.

NgeneUkwenu:
I Can Bet My Last kobo Jonathan Never Went To The University! All His Certificates Were Forged! However we shall look into it, when we assume power Next year!


While I am no spokesman for the president or any of these political players for that matter, I remember I did once come across one of his academic publications...

I found it at the AquaticCommons, and it was originally published on 29th November, 1985.

The publication is titled:
"Identification of West African Estuarine Shrimp and Crab Larvae"
by Jonathan, G.E. and Powell, C.B. and Hart, A.I. (1985).

Abstract: The paper deals with the decapod crustacean larvae likely to be found in fresh and brackish waters in tropical west Africa. It summarizes results from an ongoing program of describing larvae hatched directly from adults of known species, to provide the identification keys necessary for applied research on nursery grounds, plankton ecology and pollution effects. A preliminary key to stage - 1 larvae is given for approximately 40 species...

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item.

Page Range: pp 197 - 206


The PDF is also downloadable here

That's the much I could find for now, but I'm sure we'd find more if we actually looked. undecided

It is encouraging that you took up the challenge to show us any of GEJ's thesis or publication, the problem is that the said paper is neither a thesis or a publication. It was appropriately labeled Conference or workshop item. It was a joint paper presented at a workshop. It would be very difficult to determine jonathan's contributions.

Meanwhile please help clarify these discrepancies in Jonathan's academic records;

Yes, I know. But I still think it counts (to an extent) as one of his academic works.
Seeing it was made at UniPort in 1985, I'm hoping someone else carries on from here in unraveling the rest, if you know what I mean.

I'd be lying if I said it wasn't strange/confusing.
But maybe he took some time off from work at the College of Education (if that's even possible) or studied Part-time.
Just don't know.

FYI, conference paper is also a publication. At the moment, I'm working on a paper to be presented in a conference come next year which will also be published on a top professional organization journal.
Also, in any publication, the first author is usually the main contributor or owner of that publication just like in this case.

On your second question, that is very possible. I remember my lecturer then who was running his PhD in a different school. Meanwhile if you check the number 7 reference on that publication you'll notice that he actually completed his MSc in 1984.

WRT coloured, the lowest ranked person among the authors is usually the main contributors, the others are usually reviewers who the lowest ranked person needs for the paper to easily fly or get published, just like upcoming musicians use already made stars to lunch their careers.

I'm not disputing that fact. Normally as a researcher who wants to rise or make a stand in ones chosen field or even get your paper published, you'll want to identify with experts in the field. These experts will be the other authors. As being part of the academics, I see this as politics to be honest.

The reason for this is simple. presence of these reviewers on the article makes other reviews to give some positive reviews of the article so as to get same when their candidates send in papers later on in the future. Though the presence of these reviewers in most cases gives such a paper credibility.

Hello wiring, please note the College of Education and not University. In College of Education and other ND awarding institutions, a first degree holder can be employed as an Assistant Lecturer [1]. Maybe your question should be why is he a Lecturer with B.Sc qualification.

Also, it is very possible for him to have started studying for his Masters before or after he started working in the CoE. You must have seen workers studying for Masters in various universities across Nigeria. Abi na only GEJ own must different?

For example

if you are an educated person you will know it's possible. LOL!!I'm running my M.Sc program now and at the same time working. in my university, most lecturers on active duties were also running their M.Sc programs, infact they were given us assignments that were meant for them.

One of the contributing authors A.I Hart is even a professor in Uniport now, I wonder what people gain from rubbish propaganda, and you should equally remember that those days publications are not usually published on the Internet as we have them today, so it may be hard to get his online publications.

Actually, this is not strange in Nigeria. Like a poster mentioned above, he could have been doing it Part Time. However, Ph.D. or not, it is obvious GEJ just does not have what it takes to be a LEADER. Pure and simple. To make things worse, he is a very poor MANAGER as well. He is not fit to govern a state (as records show) let alone preside over a country. The man just doesn't have it.

Oga, a conference paper isn't a "publication", it is what it is, a conference paper. One may chose to "publish" a conference paper thereby making it a publication or present a publication at a conference making it a conference paper as well. But as long as a paper is yet to "published" in perhaps a journal, newspaper, magazine, publisher, etc, it is not a publication!

There are some conferences with dedicated journals that publish some author's presentations but let us not speculate here, we don't know for sure if this was "published".

On the second part, yes, one can be running a PG program and at the same time working as a lecturer. He probably was a graduate assistant going by the cv.

Ps: I think there was a time we dealt exhaustively with this issue. A poster was. Able to avail us with three publications in which Jonathan was a co-author. Two of them were published while he was in Bayelsa government house and the other I'm not sure but I think not as a lecturer. He wasn't a corresponding author in any of them though and that brings to question the manner of contribution he made to the papers. I hear someone say "financial". smiley

How sure are you that the G.E Jonathan in the conference paper/publication above is the same person as your President. It could very well be someone else with the same initials.

Meanwhile, all we're asking for is something we can truly verify.
