Readers react to “Open letter to President Jonathan”

November 14, 2011 

As usual, I’m posting responses – they are also in the comments section after the essay – so that readers do not read the essay and skip comments as often happens.  From experience, many comments by bloggers are as enlightening and even better than the main essay.  Subsequent comments will be added to this. 

This blog, however, reserves the right to delete comments that are not civil.  TOLA.

Perhaps, another open letter should be written to the Senate President or may be this should be copied to him. They are supposed to have “general oversight” right? They are the ones to get answers to nagging questions

Thank you Tola for this post. We should continue to highlight information like those above. Whether Jonathan and the enemies of Nigeria(very few of them) like it or not, peace will continue to elude their households because they’ll know that Nigerians know about the skeletons in their cupboards and closets.

To the Patriots and Compatriots, I’ll say-Let us continue to pile up these details and continue to post them everywhere-on facebook, twitter, youtube, skype, etc.

These evil men and women also have blogs online where we can be posting these questions such that every night they go to bed, surely, good sleep will elude them except they decide to tackle Nigeria’s many questions.

The legendary Chinua Achebe has been making statements and they continue to ignore them. The guys in Boko Haram are sending signals, they continue to ignore them. The armies of jobless youth are making gestures, the evil men in PDP have been ignoring the signs! Soon and very soon, they will be unable to contain the pressures. Alas! they may pay the ultimate price with their lives, violently!
I pray however, that Jonathan braces up and answer the likes of questions posted by 234NEXT, TOLA, SaharaReporters, etc now before it is too late. The clock ticks on..

Do you think he/they does/do not know all these atrocities? Who clear her in the first instance to become a minister despite the university/NYSC palavers on her neck? Nigeria is a country where knowing people is the qualification to political appointments. From the word go, I do not trust Jonathan to deliver any goodness to Nigeria. I wish a Rawlins springs up within the Armed Forces and clear them after collecting our money from these rogues and thieves.
