‘Jonathan Pushing Nigeria To Collapse’  print

A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mufutau Egberongbe, has urged Nigerians close to President Goodluck Jonathan to make him realise that the country is drifting faster than his thought.

Egberongbe, a representative of Apapa Constituency 1 at the House, who was reacting to the insinuation that the Federal Government was planning to further remove subsidy from petrol, noted that in the face of the several challenges facing the country, the President had maintained an I-don’t-care attitude, giving the impression that he is really not in charge of the country.

According to the lawmaker, who just came back from Saudi Arabia, “Jonathan is not swift at decision making, which is the trait of a good leader.

“You should be able to take decision; have a knack for reflective thinking and take decision swiftly at the right time. If we don’t take time, this country is seriously on the brink of collapse.

“The serial killings and kidnapping, if unchecked, will lead to a crisis bigger than what happened in January across the nation, because it will be a product of vengeance.

“I don’t see any reason Jonathan would say he wants to again remove subsidy, considering the present situation. I am talking about the monumental fraud that has never been witnessed anywhere in the world being perpetrated in our oil sector.

“I think the President should have been able to block loopholes so that we can begin to have enough savings that could cushion the effect of the subsidy.

While the big oil thieves are walking free, you can see the way our President is talking from the both sides of his mouth concerning the Ribadu report and we begin to wonder if the President knows what he is doing.

“It is an insult on the people of Nigeria and these are some of the things that can ignite the revolution that we are talking about.

“By the time the people decide to turn their back on you, there is no way you can sit down in your office either as a governor or as president. We have to be careful and ensure that the time to act is now.”

Reacting to a warning by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the lawmaker said: “He (Obasanjo) knows the quantum of resources in terms of financial resources accruable to the Federal Government and he sees the infrastructure gap we are suffering.

“Obasanjo is only attesting to the fact that his party, the PDP, has failed the country.”
