Renowned Nigerian international singer, Nneka has shared her thoughts on President Goodluck Jonathan and his postponement of the general elections in Nigerian on an interview with CNN.

The singer spoke about the political situation in the country, the elections and the president.

According to her, Goodluck Jonathan should have dealt with the issue of Boko Haram before the elections that was scheduled to hold originally on February 28.

she stated:

“He [Goodluck Jonathan] says he wants to tackle Boko Haram, obviously every Nigerian is asking why now, he could had done it a long time ago… I’m not good at the whole blaming game, I don’t want to blame anybody but I pray that he comes up with a good idea for us if he is an honest and genuine guy. But I know that Fela [Kuti] would definitely not be cool with him if he was here, Seun [Kuti] is not cool with him, I and many other socially conscious musicians who are very outspoken are not cool with him”

Nneka who is known for her politically charged songs also said that outspoken singers would not have a good relationship with the President. The general elections in Nigeria will now take place on March 28, 2015.

  1. Nigeria belonhgs to all of her peoples, the President alone. Just as we share her oiliness shall we share her problems and evil days. Rather the President, the important question is “Where have the peoples of Nigeria been since Boko Haram started operation?” We should stop blaming the President alone because he is asingle finger that does not pick louse from the head.

  2. Fine, I blame you Titus Ode, you should’ve taken your stick or bare hands to fight BH.
    Didn’t you hear that even the army trained for combat deserted the war front because they were ill equiped.
    Just to remind you, GEJ is known as the C in C and you and I; the Masses

  3. It is all nice and cute for you to stay there in America and criticise GEJ for the problems created by people like Obasanjo and Buhari. Most of your colleagues have since return to Nigeria to put things right. Which one you dey?

  4. The army’s previous failures to tackle boko haram was not entirely the problem of poor equipment. How about the infiltration of the army itself by boko haram sympathizers who were sabotaging the efforts of the military and federal govt? Even the masses have a role to play in the fight against insurgency. Useful tips and infos from the masses can help dislodge these animals.

  5. How possible can Nigerian government defeat these Boko Haram within six weeks if not with the GALLANT help of Chadian, Camerounian and Nigerien Army. with these crop of our present Leader and his cohorts
