The Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL) has condemned in strong terms, President Goodluck Jonathan, for justifying his slow style of governing the nation.

Reacting to the speech of the President at a Christmas service in Abuja, that his government appeared slow because it did not want to make mistakes, the Executive Chairman of the Coalition, Debo Adeniran noted that the slow pace shows that President Jonathan lacks the ability and will power to lead Nigeria to the desired haven.

“President Jonathan has shown that he does not possess the ability to move this nation forward. How many years does he need to achieve his transformation agenda? He was a vice president, became acting president before he became the president, and still need more time now not to make mistake. President Jonathan has been in power for close to a decade, he had the luxury of time to learn what he ought to then. It is however unfortunate that our president only learns what he wants to and retains what he wants to, if not, the nation would not have been in this mess.

Goodluck Jonathan’s case should teach every Nigerian a lesson not to vote any candidate with no manifesto into power. When he said he would not promise Nigerians anything, we never knew he was that clueless. He is always moving from one excuse to another to justify his ineptitude and that of his cabinet members.

He claimed they are taking things slow not to make mistake, but juxtaposing that with the rate of looting in his tenure, one would be amazed. This is a president that the nation was defrauded to the tune of over N5trn under his watch within two years, it means his government is quick to steal and slow to transform the nation for better. It is unfortunate that the president has disappointed the confidence reposed in him by the Nigerian masses,”Adeniran submitted.

Comrade Adeniran however called on President Jonathan to buckle up to transform the nation positively and curb the excessive corruption characterising his government, which has made Nigeria a laughing stock among the comity of nations.
