Jonathan Wasted Niger-Delta’s Chance – Obasanjo


Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has predicted tough days ahead of Niger Deltans because of the actions and inactions-of former president Goodluck Jonathan while he was in office.

Obasanjo gave this prediction in Benin City while addressing newsmen shortly after delivering a lecture at the convocation of Benson Idahosa University.

Obasanjo said he couldn’t have helped Jonathan to do his job as Nigeria President after helping him to secure the position.

He said, “I became the Head of State because of my performance in the war front. If General Gowon had not sent me to the war front, he would not know whether I could perform or not. He sent me to the war front and because I performed, we both shared the credit. But if I had failed, he would not have shared the condemnation with me. I would have taken that alone.

“I believe that the opportunity that afforded itself in 2010 was for somebody from the minority to become the President of Nigeria. We should never lose such opportunity. What he did with that opportunity is entirely up to him. What he did or did not do with it will reflect for a long time on that part of the country. There is no particular person who got there without the people,” he said.
