Terrorist Siege: Jonathan Should Act Or Resign

Terrorist Siege: Jonathan Should Act Or Resign

The StandPoint has twice in 2011 strongly condemned the tepid, indecisive response of President Jonathan to terrorist acts in the country. However the siege on the country has continued unabated. Even after the United States Government issued a warning to Americans in Nigeria on the eve of the latest attacks, the government was still caught by surprise.

In typical fashion, the responses to the Christmas day attacks by Nigeria's leaders have been remarkable only for their glibness and incompetence. National Security Adviser Gen Owoye Andrew Azazi (rtd) assured the nation with a straight face that the bombings were in response to "proactive measures" taken by security agencies against the Boko Haram sect. President Jonathan informed Nigerians that "the issue of bombing is one of the burdens we must live with." Apparently tragedy does not put brakes on the farce that has become our leadership. In addition to several other herculean burdens Nigerians are already living with, they must now calmly accept death by bombing as an inevitable package of being Nigerian.

It is now time to ask the Government of Goodluck Jonathan to either find immediate solutions to the scourge of sectarian and political violence, or concede to its incapability to respond to the emerging challenges facing the country, and resign.

What again were some of the reasons most people on this site campaigned and voted for GEJ?

1. Because he's from our region
2. Because he had no shoes as a student, and had to trek for miles to attend school
3. Because he's from minority ethnic group
4. Because he was brought up a poor boy, so MUST know what it feels like to be poor, and SHOULD be able to feel the pains of the poor masses...etc etc etc...

So who is to blame?

Hasn't it been said that a people get the kind of "leaders" they deserve?

I see no reason why GEJ should be blamed in anyway. Rather those who gave him what's bigger than him (out of trivial reasons) should blame themselves.


Peace.

What has he done so far to let them know that he's indeed the President of this nation? Patcho, why don't you just list some of the decisive actions taken by this President on the issue of security since he inherited the problem of insecurity from his predeceasor?


He gave all the security chiefs national honours for doing so well.

GEJ is a victim of northern hawks that had swore to hold Nigeria on the edge of a totem pole. The current Standpoint view falled classically to at least take aim at those that have made our lives ungovernable.
Resignation as a solution is not the point because Boko Haram has Roots and GEJ is not without Roots too. Shall GEJ Root honor his resignation in \\"One Nigeriana?\\"
The Standpoint release lacks depth... therefore.

Fuey!! Another mindless rant by the faceless cabal within NVS in the name of editorial board!!

He must not resign and he will not resign... the blood of our martyrs must not be in vain!!

We must fight to develop a secular consensus in this country and only then will this country be set free!!

Fuey!!!!

The standpoint release is a huge favour for which GEJ and his sympathisers ought to be grateful. As things stand today in the history of Nigeria, GEJ is the weakest, indecisive and most inept President we've had; Yar'Adua was a sick man - what is GEJ's excuse for slothfulness? It is either he finds a concrete solution to the problem or he resigns honourably, as posited by Standpoint. Failing that, knowing Nigeria, GEJ would be pushed out dishonourably and he will not be the first African leader to go in disgrace. This man is treading the path of General Ironsi in terms of failing to act in the face of overwhelming need to take decisive action on security. It's only a matter of time...!


@ HassanK.. meeen.. you are one dumb S.O.B!! Why don't you and your faceless cohorts go and push him "out dishonourably".. Go and try it now and see what will happen....by the time his boys finish breaking all ya legs, you will regret the day you decided to leave your small bush village in Islamabad to come and be talking big english with big boys!! clown!!!

It's unimaginable to read el-Rufai's tweeps bringing out the beast in him. How could a reasonable person run his mouth with ludicrous vituperations in this manner at a time when families are wiped out in cold blood by criminal elements?
His tweeps on 27th Dec. 11 reads:

"BH are only taking vengeance against govt for injustice commited against their leader and the Christmas massacre was only an unintended target which could have been anybody"
this man deserves to be in a lunatic asylum for proper check!

@HassanK:
Any need to look at the rear view mirror when I'm driving is such that the front view should not be obfuscated. That's what you and The Standpoint editorial lack the insight to see.
GEJ is a good man and I respect his sense of restraint.
