What do you think of President Jonathan's CNN Interview??



Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan was Interviwed on Wenesday evening, by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where he talked about several issues including Boko Haram, power supply, and more. am more concerned about his comment regarding Power Issues in Nigeria....

Well heres hsi statement below, for people who didnt watch it live, some or most Nigerians think  he lied.....

“I would have loved that you ask ordinary Nigerians on the street of Lagos, Abuja or any other city this question about power. This is one area that Nigerians are quite pleased with the government that our commitment to improve power is working. So if you are saying something different, I’m really surprised. That is one area that even civil societies agree that the government has kept faith with its promise. 

“We have not got to where we should be and of course we know that power infrastructure is one investment that you must complete the chain before a bulb can light. You must generate, you must transmit, you must distribute and even if you have the money and the political will, you cannot do it overnight and we are working very hard, you cannot do it overnight.”

His claim was immediately challenged on Twitter by Nigerians who were  following the interview in Nigeria with many tweeting that they were monitoring the interview using generators. When Amanpour put that forward to the President, he acknowledged that his administration had not achieved the targets it set for itself and promised to deliver results by the end of the year.

Well, i think he faced the fact head on....He acknowledged that his administration hasn't gotten to where they ought to be by now....That's sincere...and manly...I also think to a tiny little extent, there has been little improvement on power issues..... I remember when we used to go weeks without like, Darkness was the order of the day...when we see light we jump like its a Christmas gift, but now even if its not steady, there has been improvement....Just a tiny bit.... So we keep criticizing this man....Hes weak and all...Lets give a little Good consent for some little positive things.....
Watch and tell us what you think...


Cheers...........
