Is Goodluck Jonathan Nigeria’s Most Corrupt President? [A Must Read]

Memories are often like the morning dew: they disappear in no time. Winston Churchill won World War II and lost the next election. George H. Bush won the first Iraqi war, continued Ronald Reagan's economic prosperity policies, but he never got reelected.

No one talks about how Obama liquidated Osama Bin Laden. Charles Taylor is still wildly popular in Liberia despite his despicable past. 

Buhari is perhaps the most popular politician in the North yet only few remember the terror he unleashed in 1985 when he became Head of State. - by Asuelimen Aisabokhale. 
Obasanjo, Tawbuwal, Sanusi and some Igbo spotters and enablers are peddling these false narratives about Stella Oduah et al to redefine Jonathan and the Nigerian political lexicon, making Jonathan and his administration the monster, a president from a minority tribe trying to hijack Nigeria political process by looting our commonwealth.
When you have old tired and retired generals that have nothing good to show for their ranks gathered and ganged together, you know something fishy is going on and it will not be good.

"When Abdulsalam Abubakar began raiding 7 Billion Dollars that Gen. Abacha accumulated in Nigeria's foreign reserve. Babangida had left the reserve EMPTY. Abdulsalam made 3 Billion off our backs in less than 6 months. Obasanjo told Abdulsalam he was pardoned. Who remembers that? All one reads here is Abacha this, Abacha that, while living thieves walk about with impunity. Shame on Nigerians!" - by Peter Opara.

Nigerians ate all the vomits of the last 40 years rule of Yakubu Gowon, Murtala Mohammed, Olusegun Obasanjo, Shehu Shagari, Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, Sani Abacha, Abdulsalami Abubakar and Umaru Musa Yar'adua.

Are we not suffering from selective amnesia and or we born insane?

Umu Nnakwe wrote: "Since 1967 the North and the west has shared Nigerian wealth as their grandfather’s and father’s property with absolute disdain and disregard of the people whom those wealth and resources are be extracted from their soil and in the process their livelihood destroyed.

"Do Nigerians know how many industries and business in Nigeria that went under since 1980 due to nepotism? They all went under on our people’s watch and we should be ashamed of yourselves for suggesting that Jonathan is corruption personified:

i. Nigerians Airways

ii Nigeria Rail and Roads

iii. Nigerian Volkswagen assembly plant

iv. Nkalagu Cement in Enugu

v. Ajaokuta Steel Project, Ajaokuta

Others are:

(ii) The Delta Steel Company, Ovwian - Aladja

(iii) Jos Steel Rolling Company, Jos

(iv) Katsina Steel Rolling Company, Katsina

(v) Oshogbo Steel Rolling Company, Oshogbo

(vi) National Iron Ore Mining Company, Itakpe.

(vii) National Steel Raw Materials Exploration Agency, Kaduna.

(viii) National Metallurgical Development Center, Jos.

(ix) Metallurgical Training Institute, Onitsha.

To mention but few, these corporation were built with public funds and sold to private citizens by Obasanjo and cronies and revenues from those sales never accounted for. Were Jonathan and his cronies in government when these businesses disappeared?"


1) Who emptied ecological funds between 2002 and 2007?

2) Who embezzled $38 billion independent power project funds between 2004 and 2007?

3) Who sold Ajaokuta steel mill to himself and bought it with public funds?

4) Who was the petroleum minister between 1999 and 2007, yet nothing was remitted to the CBN?

5) Who sold Bakassi because of greed, in order to become UN Secretary General?

6) Who bribed politicians with more than 2 Trillion Naira to support his 3rd term ambition?

7) Who built a private university with public fund even at a time when ASUU was on strike protesting poor funding of Federal universities?

"I had been agonizing Just six years ago, I would have sworn that nobody would ever take Obasanjo’s views seriously again, but this is Nigeria where our memory is so shallow. Misfits get easily rehabilitated that Obasanjo was president for eight years and still failed to address power and refinery issues. I said no matter what Obasanjo achieved as president, those two things would continue to taint him. Buhari then narrated an encounter he had with Obasanjo at a Council of State meeting sometime in 2001. He recalled: “I said Mr. President, when you came into power in 1999, you said our refineries were not working because somebody (Abacha, that is) was awarding fuel import contracts to his family members.

"Two years on, Mr. President, who is getting the fuel import contracts? Are the refineries working now? He interjected and tried to stop me... That was the last time I attended Council meeting under Obasanjo’s government.” Well, the meeting has now resumed in Abeokuta! – Source:Hope For Nigeria.
