President Goodluck Jonathan
By Chuks Okocha
The Presidency Monday reacted to the opposition claims that President Goodluck Jonathan is incompetent in the management of affairs of the country, stating that the background of the President does not fall into the mould of incompetent or cluelessness tag that the opposition wants Nigerians to believe. It said that the accusation is merely propaganda stuff by the opposition.
Reacting to the Governor Babtunde Fashola’s “Mechanic allegory”, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, said in a statement: “President Goodluck Jonathan is perhaps the most academically qualified Nigerian President ever. By cognate qualification, no President has had the experience, preparation and tutelage for the post of presidency of Nigeria. For the avoidance of doubt, he was Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President, Acting President and elected President. No Nigerian president has had such a pedigree”.
