Five Reasons Why Goodluck Jonathan’s Second term Will Be A Disaster

History has a lot of lessons for us. History itself
though an event of the past is vision of tomorrow.
History is a divine prophet. Little wonder why
science relies on history so much to unravel
mysteries. I have not seen in history a
government or political party in its second term
that outperformed its first term in office.
History has a lot of lessons for us. History itself
though an event of the past is vision of
tomorrow. History is a divine prophet. Little
wonder why science relies on history so much to
unravel mysteries. I have not seen in history a
government or political party in its second term
that outperformed its first term in office. Public
office holders often disguise and show less of
their color in first terms only to activate the beast
in them in their second term when they think
nothing is at stake.
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo awed the
world in his first term in office, teachers had their
fortune and Nigerians smiled more in his first
term. Obasanjo showed the beast in him in his
second term. Olusegun Mimiko governor of Ondo
State was brilliant in his drive for a better plight
for Ondo State citizens and we sang his name.
Mimiko got his second term and his current
dispositions are tantamount to that of a
possessed mad man who listens only to the voice
of his demons and we curse his name daily.
I wonder and ponder over the matter of second
term for President Jonathan, and I have 5 reasons
why I think Jonathan’s second term in office will
be a national disaster.
INSECURITY
The carnage unleashed by boko haram terrorists
in Nigeria is alarming. The situation is ominous
and the government of the day’s body language
says “no cause for control”. The kids’ glove used
by the present government in dealing with this
barbaric and animalistic disposition of terrorists is
dangerous and dreadful. The President dines with
boko haram sponsors and declared a ceasefire
when it appears that the military is winning the
war. It is annoying that the military only decided
to assault book haram when top military
commanders were killed. Obviously the
government is playing political games with the
peoples’ lives. A nation under terrorist’s siege will
never experience peace if the evil is not stamped
out from the land early enough. Now that the
president has failed to eliminate this evil under
first term pressure, there is nothing to expect
from him in his more comfortable second term.
CORRUPTION
We have experienced successive governments of
thieves but never in history have we had it so bad.
Corruption under President Goodluck Jonathan’s
government is being defended and encouraged in
no little measure. We have seen thieves pardoned
and incongruously awarded.
Sanni Abacha’s award comes to mind. The wanton
consumption of oil money by the minister of
Petroleum Alison Madueke is unchecked. The
whereabouts of over N20 billion that grew wings
in the NNPC is yet to be discovered. We have not
seen conviction and imprisonment of corrupt
public office holders and that is enough proof
that corruption will increase to disastrous levels in
Goodluck Jonathan’s second term. Certainly it will!
Would you allow that?
UNEMPLOYMENT
It is no more news that Nigeria is a ticking time
bomb. The problem of unemployment and our
poverty rate is pitiable. Just like past
governments, the government pumps billions of
money into fixing the problem but the average
Nigerian does not benefit from such provisions.
Perhaps it is just money for the colonies of
thieves swarming the corridors of power. We will
hold the President responsible for the sins of his
Ministers. The death for
Job in the recent Immigration recruitment comes
to mind. Conditional ties to loan packages ensure
that only the rich benefit from such provisions
hence the increasing gap between the rich and
the poor. The recent N220 billion intervention
fund was given to the Bank of Industry that has
consistently failed to use billions already in its
coffers to better the lives of the very needy. This
trend will continue in Goodluck Jonathans second
term in office. We therefore foresee the same
result. Mr Jonathan! You don’t deserve a second
term. My readers, does he?
HIGH COST OF EDUCATION
Every problem we face in our country stems
partly from poor education. From the uncivil act
of terrorists to the street hawkers, something is
lacking. Education!
The cruel increase in tuition fees recently in our
universities and colleges has put many out of
school. I suppose the government should
augment the increase with scholarships and
education loans as practiced in foreign countries
with high cost of education. It is plain robbery to
bill us so high without matching quality. The
recent greed induced increase in Tution fees at
National Open University of Nigeria speaks
volume. We need quality and affordable
education that we can use to better our lives even
if there are no jobs out there. Unfortunately, I
don’t see it happening in Goodluck Jonathan’s
second term. Should we not vote him out?
POOR INFRASTRUCTURE
With infrastructure developments comes jobs and
employment. The government of the day over
reliance on oil is disastrous. Almost all facets of
Nigeria suffer except the oil industry. Agriculture
has taken the most hit. The promise of
diversifying the economy over the years have not
been kept and in fact, despite the propaganda of
improvement in agriculture, all over the south
west, I have only seen a combine harvester in
Ipeme town of Ondo State and it has broken
down for over two decades now. How has the
government of the day mechanized farming?
What infrastructures have been developed? Mr
Jonathan’s creeks and farmlands are polluted
with oil, perhaps a reason not to border. Anyway,
a second term will not bring the change. We say
no.
Rushing to the polling units to casts votes without
considering our pressing issues and the capability
of our desired candidates to fix these marauding
problems will be unwise.
The above points are not mine. They are all from
the greatest prophet and seer of all times.
History!
