President Jonathan Is Fighting Corruption- Jimi Agbaje(lagos PDP Guber Aspirant) by jigawatts(m): 8:41am On Feb 18, 2015
The Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje, says President Goodluck Jonathan is being criticised unfairly, adding that the President is effectively tackling corruption.

Agbaje said this at a youth interactive session organised by the Directorate of Youth Mobilisation of the PDP in Lagos on Monday.

He noted that the Transparency International report on corruption showed that out of 174 countries evaluated for corruption, Nigeria ranked 136th which means at least 38 countries are more corrupt than Nigeria.

He said, “I don’t know if you read recently the report by Transparency International on corruption. They say Jonathan is not fighting corruption. Of all the past Presidents and heads of state, including military, it is on record today that Jonathan’s record in fighting corruption is the best. They say he is not fighting corruption but he has the highest score in the last 20 years among those that have been fighting corruption.”

The PDP candidate said Jonathan was a true democrat and that was why he signed the Freedom of Information Bill into law.

He said despite the insults being hurled at Jonathan, the President refused to intimidate anyone.

He said the fact that Jonathan chose Prof. Attahiru Jega to head the Independent National Electoral Commission showed that Jonathan was more interested in free and fair elections than power.

He said, “It is only because Jonathan allowed democracy, that is why they can be insulting him the way they like. The person that was there before Jonathan, could they talk to him like that? But you see democracy is about freedom of speech, freedom of choice but do they allow that?

“Jonathan has allowed freedom of information. There is no freedom of information in Lagos State. They have not yet passed the law and they talk about democracy. Jonathan chose an impartial person to run INEC because he believes in democracy and that is why the elections are more competitive. If it was our own person, we would not be campaigning like this because we would believe that we had won.”

Meaning Nigeria is still more corrupt than 135 countries on the list. Also "Just Kidding" forgot to tell them that under Jonathan more money have been stolen than any other administration in Nigeria.

Mr. Jimi Agbaje, so far, no one has anything against you. I'll advise that you concentrate on your campaign and winning Lagos State; and leave Jonathan alone. Yo risk discrediting yourself by making arguments that implies that President Jonathan is not corrupt.

Keep telling them and keep campaigning so. Lagos is for Agbajes and not for Ambodes. "Ori mi o ni gbabode o".

Can you prove this? Before the passage of the bill, can you tell how much the each government spent on improving any sector of the Nigerian economy?

And which sector of the economy did each government gave a face lift?
