I’m Not Nigeria’s Problem, Says Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan President Goodluck Jonathan has said that the numerous problems facing Nigeria started before he took over the mantle of the leadership about two years ago.

The President, who spoke in Enugu during the funeral ceremony in honour of the Mother of Enugu State Governor, Mrs Theresa Chime, said something must have gone wrong along the line from 1914 when the Southern and Northern Protectorate were amalgamated till date.

He averred that Nigerians needed to reassess their journey especially from independence till date to know where the nation have gone wrong or done well.

The president advised Nigerians against playing politics with the development of the country and appealed for all hands to be on deck to save Nigeria.

He commiserated with Governor Sullivan Chime and members of his family, noting that the deceased contributed enormously to the successes recorded by his children.

Earlier in his speech, Governor Chime thanked the president for attending the funeral ceremony and prayed God to continue to give him courage to carry out his reform agenda.

    Mr President u may not be Nigeria’s problem but u have the solution to Nigeria’s problem. As the President and Grand Commander in Chiefs Federal Republic the constitution has bostowed on u enormous power to safeguard this nation 4rm total collapse.It is sad that u are yet to invoke this power on those responsible for the violence in the country today, unless u would courageously tell Nigerians u are unaware of the existenece of such power
