President Jonathan’s Delegation To Brazil Is World’s Largest, At 116!

By SaharaReporters, New York

President Goodluck Jonathan and Nigerian officials exchange greetings in Rio yesterday As Nigerians lament the abrupt departure of President Goodluck Jonathan for Brazil in the middle of violence and counter-violence in the North, SaharaReporters has gathered that the Nigerian ruler arrived at his destination with 116 men and women, the largest national delegation, contrary to his pledge in January to travel at less weight and expense.

Our sources say the team is made up of:
• 25 personal aides
• 18 aides of Patience Jonathan
• 2 members of the National Assembly
• 5 Ministers
• 2 Governors, and
• 63 officials from the Ministries of Enviroment, Foreign Affairs, National Planning and Petroleum Resources.

The junket will continue for Mr. Jonathan next week Thursday when he will be in Brussels for the World Customs Conference, scheduled for June 28-30. He will be taking with him about 57 people, including 26 aides, 3 Ministers, 8 members of the National Assembly, and 20 other government officials.

From June 25 to 29, Mrs. Jonathan will be in Maryland, United States, accompanied by 36 people: 18 aides, 4 wives of Governors, and 14 friends and associates.

Nigerian political parties yesterday lambasted Mr. Jonathan’s decision to leave for Brazil, just hours after violence and counter-violence had reportedly resulted in over 74 dead and hundreds injured. On Sunday, the president called on God to intervene in the violence.

But he has also promised to see to the end of the Islamic militant group militant Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad, widely-known as Boko Haram, this month. After he made that pledge in April, the militants promised to make June a bloody month in order to prove that Jonathan has no power over them. Some helpless Christians have in the past few days resorted to reprisal attacks against Muslims.

Only yesterday, as Jonathan hopped on one of his gleaming new executive jets and left the chaos in Nigeria behind, Boko Haram notified SaharaReporters that it would launch even more devastating attacks on churches and government buildings in the coming days.

The group’s contact person said Boko Haram had line up about 300 suicide bombers to attack churches in Southern Kaduna and in Plateau State in its determination to exact considerable revenge for the Muslims killed in Christian reprisals in the last few days.

    If Jonathan actually went on his foreign trip with this amount of people then either †̥ђe̶̲̥̅ man is sick or †̥ђe̶̲̥̅ country is sick

    It’s quite unfortunate ₣o̲̣̥я a great nation like ours who’s blessed with intellectuals to b ruled by a dullard & confussionist who @ his age can’t differentiate luxury from necessity. What I believe is one day,nemesis will catch up with them.

    can everyone just shut up for a second. all you people do is to sit down and lament. if i may ask for how long will you all do that. even the bible you religiously quote, has wars in them and also said you can demand for your right if it true with your conscience. you sit there and hail Egypt and Tunisia, yet you are so afraid to do something about yours. if you cannot do it for yourself why not do it for the sake of your children and generations to come. we already know our problems, why cant we start sorting them out. please people march to the NASS and presidential villa and ask for your right. it is after all your right.or is it not?

    When you put a lamb where dog suppose to sit what you hear is meeh, meeh instead of wooh, wooh that is who bad lurk Jonathan is. That was the reason an errand boy like Ambassador Usman Abubarka to Germany can treat him the way he was treated his last trip to Germany.
