“I am the most criticized president in the whole world” – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has stated that he believes he is the most criticized president in the whole world. The president was speaking while declaring open the 52nd Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Abuja.

The president pointed out that such heavy criticism is borne out of the fact that his critics failed to understand that the country’s current challenges predated his administration. He therefore assured that his critics would have cause to praise him at the end of the life of his administration, when his Transformation Agenda would have yielded the expected dividends.

In his words, “I think I am the most criticised president in the whole world, but I tell this noble audience that before I leave, I will also be the most praised president.”

Assuring Nigerians that he is no stranger to the blame game, the president said, “I have experienced that before in my governorship journey in Bayelsa State. In fact, people who were close to me will tell you that even after the election, I told them that in my first 12 months please cover your ears because you will hear all kinds of things. But as we progress, you will see.”

  2. Shut up nurudeen,do you think to be a president is easy?I dn’t blame you because you and your people dn’t know anything, all you do is to sit and wait for money u dn’t even know whether the people that the money is coming from their place has a hygienic water not to talk of food.As for mr.president i understand with you that many things can never be achieve in a day without following the right path.So remove anybody who is not competent enough to be in your cabinet and if you do this believe me the sky will not only be our limit but our starting point.Thank you.
