President Jonathan Cannot Win Another Presidential Election Even Today

President Goodluck Jonathan.

Judging by the current affairs in Nigeria, President G.E. Jonathan cannot win another presidential election even if it is done today, because he has disappointed majority of those who voted for him over a year ago, especially the youths.

The transformation he promised them is ironically turning into "transdeformation".
More youths are jobless.
Corruption increased with his election.
Oil theft and fuel subsidy scams increased since his election.
Insecurity worsened since his election not only in the northern states, but also in his native Niger Delta region that his wife feels safer in Lagos than in Bayelsa. She loves the peaceful ambiance of the ACN state than even Abuja or Port Harcourt. She sleeps better in Lagos than in Abuja. In fact, she is impressed by how Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola is directing the affairs of Lagos State even with the daily influx of thousands of Nigerians relocating from her own backward state and other violent states to the mega city of "Eko O ni Baje".
Lagos is better, healthier, safer and wealthier than Abuja and every other state in Nigeria. Of course, the governor of Lagos State has more credibility to win a presidential election than the president who should have been left to prove himself in the management of his small Bayelsa State for four years before being given the Herculean task of the biggest black nation on earth.
He was not prepared for the bigger challenges of being the head of state of Nigeria which only military rulers have been able to do since independence.

The worst Islamic rebellion in Nigeria happened during a civilian head of state Alhaji Shehu Shagari in the early 1980s, so whatever political badluck President Goodluck is having now has nothing to do with the fact of him being a Christian from the southern region, because the Islamic terrorism in Nigeria began when Nigeria had a Muslim President from the northern region until it was stopped by a military head of state until it returned again when another Muslim President Alhaji Umaru Yar' Adua was elected.

It is important to state these facts of history for the education of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the legions of ignorant tribalism-driven i-d-iots and fake Christians from the south-south and southern eastern region who have poor knowledge of the political history of Nigeria since majority of them have failed to read and the evil and wicked politicians and their errand boys continue to lie to them and mislead them in tribal conceit and political deceit to exploit their perpetual ignorance to rig and win electoral contests.

What we are seeing now are the nightmares of an incompetent president of a corrupt government that has failed woefully to direct the affairs of Nigeria after using his tribal conceit and political deceit to fool the ignorant electorate in the last presidential election.
