President Goodluck Jonathan today began a two-day visit to crisis-torn Borno and Yobe states. This is the first time he would be making such visit since the 2011 presidential election campaign.

The president’s visit is coming on the heels of the visit, last Thursday, to Maiduguri by opposition state governors under the platform of the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC).

Over time, critics have accused the president of failing to visit these parts of the North, which constitute the center of Boko Haram terrorist activities, which have led to the death of many people and destruction of property worth millions of naira. Although the Vice President was in Borno in February to commission a number of projects implemented by the state government, such visit had done little to assuage the feeling among critics that the Federal Government had abandoned the people.

Meanwhile, as would be expected, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has criticised the president’s visit, saying that it meant that he had only been waiting for the similar ground-breaking visit of the opposition governors. Again, governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have described President Jonathan’s visit to Borno State as belated, childish and an afterthought. Meanwhile, the Borno State government has declared Friday, as work free day for both the public and private sectors following the expected visit of President Jonathan.

  1. GEJ, do not deceive yourself, Borno people doesn’t need your visit. Let’s be precise to you, we are all in support of APC, our Heroes. We are now waiting for 2015 to show you the way out. You have failed to deliver.

  2. I guess, when we jointly voted for our present president, we did not vote for party sack. Please be cautioned you so called political parties. You did not inform your boss, the president that you are going on visit to Borno, so that to know when he will be going there. So even if he chooses to go after you mind you he is your head and as far as he is concerned you are still his subordinates. Show some respect. Give honor to whom it is due. Wait for your time so that you can blow your trumpet But we are trusting in God to help us in this country not in any of these selfish parties

  3. The tragedy in Borno is self-inflicted.He who goes to the bush and fetches ants-infected faggot should expect the visit of lizards.You have killed all the innocent Southerns among you and now you are killing youself and you expect to be sympartised with.Your heroes spossor your decimation.

  4. The thing is this; d APC govs has an informant in GEJ’s admin. So they knew GEJ would be going soon nd they decided to go b4 him… Though i’m nt in support of GEJ going there nw cos He has already shown Nigeria that He is a coward, biased nd doesn’t have this nation @ @

  5. Whether he capable or not he is what, “A LEADER”. And the mantle is upon him. If he chooses to misuse it, well its up to him. The problem we are facing is that we expect much from mere puny man and loose focus on our God who is in charge of man himself. Please pray for the peace of your Jerusalem( Nigeria) so that you that is in it shall be in peace. Hope in God alone for a change for the heart of man is deceitful.

  6. Some people can be stupid in there comments like Abba, ACP or not, northerner’s support or not if GEJ is the next choosen leader come 2015 nothing will stop him,dont forget his name is Goodluck Ebele Jonathan so read meaning to this names. So dont decide bcos u nothing about ur tomorrow.

  7. @Ejim .some pple hav eyes but can’t see .since 21 april 20011 .Is that what we can said this country live by his name. If u ar given d opportunity come 2015,try n bring peace,unity to d north n Nigeria at large by voting for APC.

  8. GEJ, the dumbest president ever & currently the worst African president. He thinks with his ass. He was probably drunk when he went to Borno
