Northern Political Leaders Ask Jonathan To Resign

Read the press statement by The Northern Political Leaders Forum after the cut...

RIP Hilal

She died of cancer a few days ago. So so sad.
Rest in peace!

Jonathan wants Prof Fafunwa to apologize to Nigerians. I think he should be the one apologizing.

There was massive failure in Neco this year. I think more than half the students failed the examination. And in addressing the issue, the federal government or let's say Pres. Goodluck Jonathan has asked Professor Babatunde Fafunwa to apologize to Nigerians for the failure of the 6-3-3-4 system of education (6years in primary school, 3years in Junior Secondary School, another 3years in Senior Secondary and 4 years in a tertiary institution) that he introduced in 1982 while serving as the Minister of Education. Jonathan is blaming the failure of our education sector on that system.

SMH! Instead of dealing with the real issues, they are talking about a system. How is that the problem? It doesn't matter what you call it, if the foundation is messed up, everything else is messed up.

Presidency Asked Me to Blame North for Bombing, Says Okah

"On Saturday morning, just a day after the attack, a very close associate of President Jonathan called me and explained to me that there had been a bombing in Nigeria and that President Jonathan wanted me to reach out to the group, MEND, and get them to retract the earlier statement they had issued claiming the attacks. They wanted to blame the attacks on northerners who are trying to fight against him [Jonathan] to come back as president and if this was done, I was not going to have any problems with the South African government." Okah said in an interview with Al Jazeera on Tuesday conducted by telephone from the South Africa prison where he is being held on terrorism charges.

The presidency have denied the politically damaging, and potentially incriminating allegation, saying it was all made up by the militant leader.

Oh dear, what is going on in our country...?
