Itse SagayThe unscheduled visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to the Police College Ikeja, has continued to generate mixed reactions from cross-section of Nigerians – while some lauded the visit, others were left fuming in the mouth with certain comments attributed to the Nigerian leader.

For renowned Constitutional Law expert, Prof. Itse Sagay, the president disappointed him because he didn’t seem moved by the level of decay he saw at the police college, but was angry that it was exposed.

He said, “The fact that such an important public institution was allowed to decay to that level shows the kind leadership we have in this country and government’s total lack of consideration for Nigerians. But what was more baffling to me was the President’s reaction. He didn’t express shock at the level of decay but was angry that the failure of his government was exposed.

“He didn’t care that those that are being trained there would come out to be of no use to the country, because they were trained in a decayed and hostile environment. He was only concerned with the image of his government. That to me is a pointer to the character and attitude of those in government and it’s very disturbing.”

  1. Prof he did, stop castigating Jonathan unnecessarily, he would hv preferred it brought to his notice confidentially & there’s nothing wrong with that, those buildings hv been dre since 1970, its not only Jonathan’s Government dt hv ignored it as successive Governments hv since 1970.
    Jonathan ws the first Head of State to visit a Police College since 1970. Wat ever his intentions r, wat he did was d best, weather its to save his government’s face or not, Jonathan cannot be held responsible for the rot in d Police Formation.

  3. Prof, may God bless u for dis comment. Nigerians are suffering, and I pray dat d president ll take wat he saw at d police as the true state of d country he has been clamouring to TRANSFORM.
    Alot have gone wrong In Nigeria, and it beholds on him as the number one man to step on toes and abate or end the CORRUPTION dat have brought us dis far.
    God bless Nigeria
