Jonathan: We Didn’t Completely Plug The Loopholes In Fight Against Corruption by patani(m): 1:57pm On Jan 10
Immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan has said that his administration did not plug all loopholes in its bid to end corruption in the country.

The former President, however, said it was wrong to assume that the economy would have been in a worse shape if he was not kicked out of power in 2015.

Jonathan spoke at the Eagles Square, Abuja on Saturday during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, non- elective national convention.

He was flanked by his former deputy, Namadi Sambo, some serving and former governors, and chieftains of the party.

Jonathan also pointed at the 2012 flood in the country as a major set back to his government.

According to him, “Though we didn’t completely plug the loopholes in the fight against corruption, but we did well.

“I learnt that some people said that if the PDP had remained in power beyond 2015, the economy would have been worse. This couldn’t have been the case, because we had a sound economic team in place.

“Let us not forget that the great floods of 2012 were a major calamity that damaged homes and farmlands on the plains of River Niger and Benue.

“But despite the devastating effects of this natural disaster, there were no food shortages or arbitrary increase in prices, because of what we were able to accomplish with our agriculture transformation agenda, which considerably boosted food production.

“If we say that we rekindled hope in our people and regained international goodwill, it is because we pursued a number of policies and programmes that were not only richly rewarding for our people, but were also being copied by many countries across the globe, a few of which I will mention here.”

“I learnt that some people said that if the PDP had remained in power beyond 2015, the economy would have been worse.
If only our democracy started with a great, honest and pious man like President Muhammadu Buhari back in 1999.
Unfortunately it started with looters, criminals, rapists and fraudulent characters.
We thank God for his faithfulness.

It could have been worse!
Many Nigerians would have been eating from trash/dustbins by now.
And less than 100 people having BILLIONS OF DOLLARS stashed all over the world to oppress the remaining 200 million citizens!
Again, It could have been worse!

desiredhome:
There shall be no peace for the wicked......
Stealing is not corruption
A very Big Amen!
God bless you.
maasoap:
Most especially when one remembers how his loopholes helped in sharing 2 BILLION dollars to PDP members and how Buhari's pits made them vomit parts of it.
You gave a good reply to that kid! wink
#RESPECT
BroOptimist:

Yes, I agreed with you on this one, simply because, there's no more free money as usual.
Sorry, sir.
Lol cheesy
Another good reply!
desiredhome:

Thanks.... I like people with positive mindset, like you
Thank you sir.
A good and better Nigeria is all we want.
God bless.

STEALING IS NOT CORRUPTION .......... Oga Jona.

We went to Google and typed the word 'ineffectual buffon' in the search box, and below is the first page that popped up from the foreign/international and highly respected Economist Magazine......

Wasted years of looting
It could have been worse!

Gej keeps giving ipob miscreants reasons to turn against him. First was the Bayelsa election and now, this.

Instead of saying he fought corruption tooth and nail even without proof so ipob can start falling over themselves sucking his balls, he is saying something else.

Perhaps gej has realised whoever those miscreants support always fail.

Seems our leaders have taken a clue from Governor Makinde in taking responsibility and not shifting blames. Jonathan is the second person to take responsibility. This year will be interesting! Let's keep watching!

The Nigeria Ruling system is the bedroom of all evil vices..the governor's and president's are the creator of every loophole because they main target is to milk the country dry that is why I want all Nigerians to welcome imes, A man to bring about peace and prosperity to any part of the world where he's accepted.

A hero... A relief... A reformer... A saviour.

Imes, the end of days and beginning of new ones, is coming and he can emerge at any blessed time. he who has ears, let him hear
