President Jonathan has responded to the criticisms that landed on him over his travel to Brazil while serious crisis was raging in the north.
Nigerians at large did not understand why the Presido would leave the country at the very moment Churches were been bombed by Boko Haram in Kaduna State.
The Special Adviser to the President on Communications, Reuben Abati defended Oga Jona saying that Jonathan met with security agencies and made sure no wahala was on ground before he left for Brazil on Tuesday.
Which kain yarn be this? This man is saying the Conference that Presido attended was of optimum importance to Nigeria. Why dis people dey talk like this na?
He said: “The crisis in Kaduna and Yobe occurred almost on the eve of the President’s departure for this event and commitments have been made. “In any event, it is not as if government has abandoned the situation at home. Security agencies are there, they are on top of the situation.
“Before the President left, he met with security chiefs. The business of leadership cannot just stop because there is a crisis there. “I think what we can do is to appeal to the opposition not to always play politics with everything; that is the major challenge we face, people always want to play politics with everything.
“If the President had refused to come to Rio, the same persons will turn around and say that there is an important conference attended by world leaders and the Nigerian President stayed away from it.
“It is as if there is nothing you can do to please our people. It is not that Nigeria is going to lose anything by Mr. President’s presence here rather, the country is going to gain a lot from his presence here. “He is here serving the interest of Nigerians, it is not as if he has abandoned his responsibilities”
Is this man making sense or talking trash?
