Pres. Jonathan orders full investigation into cause of diplomatic row with Morocco

Read the State House press release below..
President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is shocked, surprised and highly embarrassed by the controversy that has erupted over whether or not he had a telephone conversation with His Majesty, King Mohammed VI of Morocco. The regrettable furore that has developed over the matter is due entirely to misinformation as President Jonathan has neither spoken with King Mohammed or told anybody that he had a telephone conversation with the Moroccan Monarch.
It is true that President Jonathan has been speaking with some African leaders to seek their support for Nigeria’s candidate for the position of President of the African Development Bank (AfDB).
In continuation of his efforts in support of the candidacy of the Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina for headship of the AfDB, President Jonathan indicated that he would like to speak with the King of Morocco, the President of Algeria and the President of Egypt. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was consequently directed to make necessary contacts with the embassies of the three countries and arrange for President Jonathan to speak with their leaders.
Since that directive was given, President Jonathan has spoken with the Prime Minister of Algeria and subsequently sent Vice President Namadi Sambo to Algiers as Special Envoy to follow-up on his discussions with the Algerian Prime Minister on support for Nigeria’s candidate in the coming elections for the AfDB Presidency.
The President has, however, not yet spoken with King Mohammed VI and President Al-Sisi of Egypt as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must know. President Jonathan has therefore ordered the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Aminu Wali to urgently undertake a full investigation of the claim which emanated from the Ministry that the President spoke with King Mohammed VI.
The investigation is to identify all those who were responsible for the unacceptable act of official misinformation which has resulted in an unnecessary diplomatic row with another country and national embarrassment. It is also expected to unveil the motives of the culprits. President Jonathan has also ordered that prompt and commensurate disciplinary action be taken against the culpable person or persons.
While awaiting the outcome of the investigations, President Jonathan urges Nigerians to disregard the vituperations of opposition elements, who have, true to type, latched on to the regrettable faux pas as a fresh opportunity to unpatriotically denigrate the government of their country and advance their irresponsible quest for victory at any price in the coming elections.

Total incompetence. GEJ has no clue as to how to run a country. Stumbling from one mis-step to another. Poor leadership with an incompetent team surrounding him.

ould be staged by the oposition to further embarrass the president. On the side of the Moroccan authorities, it was alleged that the president of Nigeria wants to use the lies to win Muslim votes in Nigeria. By this, has Morocco not shown its support for GMB as a Muslim. Where is diplomacy in the entire thing. Moroccan government didn't do well.

Am afraid the way and manner we are going about this. I see viciously angry people here. I doubt given the same opportunity, any one of us can do better. Those who Excell don't make noise. You can criticise but don't insult your president. He is still your president. Vote him out if you can. If you have respect for your parents, stop all thsee.

Jonathan keeps embarrassing Nigeria and Nigerians almost on everything. Fake Boko Haram ceasefire, I was not aware. Capture of Shekau- I was not aware. Killing of Shekau- I was not aware. Kidnap of Chibok girls- I am nor aware. What is Jonathan EVER AWARE ABOUT!!! And you are supposed to be the President? How could Foreign Affairs Ministry, one of the major Federal ministries release such a lengthy statement claiming Jonathan had a lengthy telephone discussion with the King of Morocco only for Jonathan to claim he did not FOUR WHOLE DAYS AFTER THE SCANDAL???

We need to vote out the Clueless One!

Frank Asein said...

Is this man for real? How will such information from a Ministry as important as the Foreign Affairs pass through without the knowledge of the President? So many amazing incidents in one administration. #GodHelpUs

This Jonathan should just go away. Can he just resign.

The funniest thing about GEJ is that when he's hungry, he must give order for full investigation to the cause of the hunger, before he eats.

This na big insult o. why will the president even talk about calling his Moroccan counterpart. insult of the highest order

Anonymous said...

#mschew- Nigerians have never been so ashamed of their country. Every tom dock and Harry talks to us without respect. We are seen as liars in the face of everyone.

#smh - I thought GEJ was clueless but I have confirmed he and his crew have showered Nigeria with wickedness in the past 4 years because in the past 4 weeks he's done so much than the past 4 years just because of election.

SAI Buhari
