Jonathan’s Government Is A Disappointment – Tinubu

The administration of President Goodluck Jonathan has been given the thumbs down by former Lagos State governor and Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) national leader, Bola Tinubu.


Tinubu hinged his verdict on the current administration’s failure to deliver on many of its promises, particularly that of transforming their lives.

He stated this yesterday in his Christmas message to Nigerians. “This current administration rather than translating its touted transformation agenda into impactful performance has hastened the transformation of most Nigerians into poverty, into a world of unemployment and insecurity” he said.

He said Nigerians survived the outgoing year through dint of handwork and courage than through the support of the government.

While urging Nigerians not to lose hope and to continue in the spirit of Christmas to make the sacrifices necessary to make Nigeria better, he enjoined Christians to continue in steadfast prayers for Nigeria, noting that every good leader needs the support and prayers of the followers to succeed.

“Our faith will never let us down. We must trust in God and pray for a better country. When we pray, God will give Nigeria leaders that are capable, compassionate and committed.

“The situation our country is in today is both sad and unacceptable. We are as a people without a leader, a country with no trustworthy men at the helm of affairs and a nation lost at sea. Our leaders must commit to a better country, not tomorrow, but beginning now, today because time is not on our side and the continued patience of the people may no longer be guaranteed,” Tinubu said


  • Asiwaju A. Tinubu have said it all. Failed upon failed promises. Nothing seems to be working in his favour ‘cos any problem in Nigeria is solved through the setting up of committees by the President.

  • Jonathan is NOT responsible for The problem of Nigeria.

    He can’t solve the ills of this nation even in 8yrs alone.
    All d nations of the world are facing same crises.

    We all know that even the best leader in America can’t rule this nation.
    In ur own office or business, play ur part.

    Jonathan is slow due to democratic processes and he is not a military leader.

    Ghana change started from military by force and transfered to civilians.

    He needs support and our prayers too.

  • See who is talking! Stupid greedy man. If another party apart from PDP gingers themself, they will definitely win Lagos state. We are tired of AC. Tinubu and his stooge have brought tremendous hardship on Lagosians!

  • Tinubu has said it all. Leadership is what Nigeria needs and Jonathan lacks leadership ability. His government is one of the tail wagging the dog. Jonathan promises all the time and achieves nothing. Infrastructure is decrepit. Airlines are collapsing. Electricity does not exist. Insecurity is ravaging the land. The President and his guys are totally aloof to the suffering of Nigerians. While Obasanjo was in power the maximum spent on fuel subsidy was about N600 billion. In 2011 under Jonathan this figure jumped to N2.1 trillion. After Nigerians went on strike that they will not pay more for fuel, the cost in 2012 is still greater than N1 trillion. The finance minister argued that the budgeted N881 billion was enough for fuel subsidy, but Jonathan’s goons kidnapped the mother and in the same week Jonathan took N161 billion to the senate got it approved to be shared. His government is not only corrupt but brazenly so and criminal in conduct and intent.

    For those who think Lagos is not functioning under ACN show me a PDP state doing better. Only those benefiting from the clueless and stinkingly corrupt government of Jonathan will support this government at the Federal level. I rest my case.
