2015 ELECTION: Jonathan Is Incompetent, Corrupt & There’ll Be Bloodshed, If He Runs”

Second Republic member of the House of Representatives and Russian trained Medical Doctor, Junaid Mohammed, has declared that blood would flow on the streets of Nigeria, should President Jonathan insist on running for the presidency in 2015.



The closest President Goodluck Jonathan has come to saying whether or not he would run in 2015 was to say recently that he was under pressure to run. Should he run?

First and foremost, I do not believe he should run. He should not run, whether he is under pressure or not. He is his own man, therefore, he should be responsible enough to take that decision, and not to bore us with the irresponsible statement of saying he is under pressure. He should stop playing with the destiny of this country. He is humble enough to know the consequences of his action, should he insist on running. But let me warn that he should not do anything that would plunge the country into  avoidable anarchy.

Quote me, if Jonathan insists on running, there will be bloodshed and those who feel short-changed may take the warpath and the country may not be the same again. His running will amount to taking about 85 million northerners for a ride  and that is half of the country’s total population. So, there will be bloodshed. But we don’t pray to get to that level, before his ethnic and tribal advisers pull him back.

In case these advisers are unable to pull him back, what are the options available to Nigerians?

The option is to pile up pressure, to ensure that  he does not take the country for a ride. Nigerians must be prepared not to allow him force any political upheavals or violence on us, because that will be the consequence, if he fails to listen to the voice of reason.
At any rate, on the three criteria  globally used to measure preference for a leader, this man has got none of them. They are competence, integrity and acceptability. On competence, you journalists know this better. President Jonathan is incompetent.

He has got no integrity, because he is also corrupt and irresponsible. On acceptability, apart from his few ethnic and tribal advisers, who are urging him to contest, Jonathan today is not acceptable to the generality of Nigerians. So on all these three counts, he is nowhere, so on what basis is he going to run? Answer me, I am asking? So like I said from the onset, in order to avoid political upheavals and violence that his action would cause this country, it will be in the best interest of Nigeria for him not to run. And history will surely be kind on him, should he decide to take that path of honour.

Having said that, if there is going to be a free and credible election, I don’t mind if Jonathan runs, because I know he would be roundly rejected by Nigerians. But the last thing you want to guarantee in a country where the police have suddenly become an arm of PDP’s militia is a free and credible election. You don’t win election by using the bullets. So we are in a Catch 22 situation.


  1. Can you hear this Boko BLOOD thirsty threatening bloodshed, and the Security agents cannot mark him against time. Why must somebody like him, a supposed Statesman be talking like this? If Nigerians are wise, the North will not smell that seat again

  2. who the hell is this man to condem GEJ, was he not among the thieves that ruin this country before with thier nt to do well policies. we are not scared of blood shared anymore because we’v been neglected for long(the youth). WE ARE EVER READY

  3. l wonder if an elther stateman like Junaid Mohammed will make such a statement.what will the kids said.we should focus on who is the best candidate to contest 2015 election and not attacking individuals.Nigeria is bigger than any body so if he is prepared shed blood let him invite his family members if they
    don’t value their life.

  4. I dont think Junaid Muhammad is above the law.Whose blood will spill?Its the blood ofvthe down trodden who have nothing to eat and not talk of sheltervover their heads. Buhari made such unguarded statements today we have Boko Haram terrorising in the north. He worked away free. Now Junaid Muhammad is talking about flowing if Mr President should again run as the President. This is an early warning intelligence the policy makers in the country to work on. I hope this will stop further shading innocent blood in this country.

  5. All Nigeria, listen to this Am not KNOW PROPHET or PASTOR From this day today 02-12-2013 Junaid Muhammad and alike, there evil that hold this country captive so I PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS THEY WILL NEVER LIVE TO SEE 2015 IN JESUS NAME. AMEN,AMEN and AMEN

  6. Its saddens my heart when people of high profile like Junaid who had travelled far and wide, made such unguided statement. It shows those called the elder statesmen in this part of the country are naive and have shallow sense of humor. Why are the northerners power drunk? God still have real work to do in this country and I decree “Those who will truncate the peace of this country come 2015 will be used as sacrifices to consecrate Nigeria in Jesus name. He that ousted SANNI ABACHA without making use of Soldiers and machinery will do as of old once again to any man, group or forces that will truncate the peace of this country”

  7. Dr. Junaidu, even if I did not completely agree with his method, said three things about GEJ: that he is not competent, that he lacks integrity and that he is not acceptable to the electorates, but none of the foregoing comments had disputed what he said. Instead and as usual and typical of Nigerians, we went on crucifying the man. As nationalists, let us try to find out the truth of his allegations, so that we could situate the president vis; his suitability for election in 2013.
