Jonathan Doesn’t Know His Job – Tinubu

APC-Osun-RallyAhead of the governorship election in Osun State this weekend, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has urged the people not to be deterred, admonishing them that “you cannot eat omelet without breaking an egg”.

Tinubu, who addressed a huge crowd of supporters that turned out for the party’s mega rally for the re-election of Governor Rauf Aregbesola at the Township Stadium, Osogbo, also accused President Goodluck Jonathan of ineptitude.

On Saturday’s gubernatorial poll and the president’s directive for Osun to be heavily policed, Tinubu said: “Don’t be intimidated by the soldiers or police. We give them their uniform and pay their salaries. We won’t allow anybody to use police and soldiers to harrass us. Our party agents should not take bribe from anybody to sabotage the election. If you stand firm you will be the first set of people to be recruited for jobs when it is time for it”.

Tinubu pointed out President Jonathan’s failure in many sectors, especially with regards to the abducted Chibok schoolgirls, “They keep saying they know where the kidnapped girls are kept. If truly they know, let them bring them out and if it is the enemies that keep them and they know, it means they are saying they should be taken away”.

He continued: “It is a broom revolution. You must come out, everyone of you to cast your vote. Don’t be afraid of the police or the soldiers. They are paid to protect you. They are part of us. We have them in our families.

“We know them. We must be careful and vigilant this time. But we must protect our votes. The soldiers are to protect you. They cannot use the uniform to steal our votes. Defend your votes. Our agents must be vigilant.

“Jonathan is an incapable leader. He does not know this job. Where are our girls? They say they know where the girls are. If so, why not bring them out and set them free. Bring back the girls. APC is a party of the common man. Don’t be intimidated.

“Tell the soldiers to let you perform your civic duty. Police affairs minister and some PDP chieftain are bragging that Aregbesola will not win a single local government. It seems they have seen the results before the voting.

“They seem to know what you don’t know. We will win Osun State. They governor has performed. He is constantly working for the people”, the former Lagos governor said.

Aside from APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomole; Oyo State governor, Abiola Ajimobi; a former chairman of the party, Bisi Akande, Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun; Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha; Kwara State governor, Abdulfattah Ahmed; his predecessor in office, Senator Bukola Saraki, former governors of Osun State, Isiaka Adeleke and Olagunsoye Oyinlola, as well as other leaders of the party were present at the rally.


  1. Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu is one Nigerian that should not be seen anywhere near where the people’s mandate is discussed. This is a man who failed woefully in Lagos as can be glimpsed from the performances of his successor Gov Fasola. It is because we are in a third world country where anything goes. Bola Ahmed Tinubu should ordinarily be in jail for all the money he wasted without any physical transformation in Lagos state to show for it. Of course he can never be the president of this country there are lots of better breed of the Yoruba race to be chosen from. He should leave Jonathan to finish his tenure and nigerians to decide the next president

  2. i told people that apc has no root it has no material and they lack focuss and am stating it here catigorically that both Tinubu and buhari represents curses/failors in any political arreaner,emergin a person of Tinubu a man who held lagos state hostage for good eight years with noting to show for it,a man whose agenda while in office was to oppress the poor,the xtians,the businesses,looting and merginalise many sections of lagos”had it been he remember who he is and his errors of life he wouldn’t has insult and called our presidents names,but am happy that even he in himself knew that neither him nor any apc member can never smell the presidency because the country is not for bokoharamite like them they are all group of confussionist and they were awear of their crumbling and loses that is why they nown resought to abuse and blame game in other to justify themselvs from their atrocities useless group.

  3. I don’t understand what all these niger delta peoples always says. I don’t blame them, I only blame Obasanjo whom by now also regreting to have allowed this son of a Bastard as our president. The niger deltas don’t work, they are specialised armed rubber, kidnapper, Ritualist nd also fucking illiterate. Tinubu produced Fashola d best governor up till date in nigeria. He produced Amosu, Oshiomole, Aregbeshole etc.we south west believe in Tinubu as our leader. Who is d leader of the south south. 60% of d entire south south nd south east live, work nd benefit in south west because they have no responsible government nd also moral Value. Shame to south south with ur so call ‘Na our oil money’. Wait till 2015 election wen northerner nd wester would combined to vote out egbere jonathan. Aregbeshole is Osun nd Osun is Aregbeshola. APC all d way!

  4. Fellow osun pple don’t be afraid on dis vote.& not allow jonathan to use police to treat u pple at all, stay and vote 4 ur respondable apc. Since we are held of boko haram notin jonathan did on it, we all know dat PDP are are boko haram.pls let vote 4 party dat responsible like APC, my prayer to dis our Nigeria by God praise all our ledder PDP dat spoil d president we be kill,Amen.since dey did not think of poor pple only their own.
