A former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Professor Tam David-West, has verbally issued a quit notice to President Goodluck Jonathan to evict from the Aso Rock villa.
Daily Independent reports that the former petroleum minister on Tuesday called on Jonathan to start preparing his hand-over note because his days in office as the president of Nigeria were numbered.
He explained that his reason for the call is because Jonathan’s party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will suffer a humiliating defeat in the hands of the All Progressives Congress (APC) come March 28.
“Jonathan should quickly look for shoes and go back to Otuoke. I have shoes in Ibadan and Abuja; I can give him some if he is in need of shoes. Everywhere you go, you see signs that the end of this government, led by Jonathan, is very near. Honestly, I do not have anything against him, but a party and a man that can better manage Nigeria has appeared on the scene, and we have no choice but to save our country from an impending doom,” he said.
The elder statesman said Nigerians cannot continue to tolerate a government that is evidently confused and incapable of providing leadership.
David-West, who is a Professor of Virology also warned that the drift in almost every aspect of our national life will linger on if Jonathan is not shown the way out because, the president lacks the capacity to lead.
The ex- minister also challenged the President to show Nigerians his doctoral thesis, and end the ragging controversy around his certificate.
“I became a professor in 1974, so when I see a scholar I know. I have asked people to look for the PhD of Jonathan but I am yet to find it. I think he owes Nigerians an explanation because he is our president,” David-West said.
It would be recalled that Professor David-West had earlier insisted that President Jonathan does not have a doctorate degree before he recently blasted the former federal commissioner of information, Chief Edwin Clark, over his call to arrest the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega.
