Gov. Fashola blasts GEJ & VP Sambo, says Nigeria is worse off under their leadership

In a speech he delivered yesterday August 14th to mark the 50th birthday of former Bayelsa state Governor, Timipre Sylva in Abuja, Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola said despite the academic qualifications of both President Jonathan and VP Namadi Sambo, their leadership skills have by no means benefited the living standard of the normal Nigerian, insisting that the lives of Nigerians is worse off now than what it had been four years ago. 
"Even recently, we all used to think that our National development was inhibited by the fact that we never had a university graduate as leader of any national government in an executive capacity. This perhaps alludes only faintly to some of what I have discussed about the elite consensus  but it is not quite the same. Thankfully, the myth for graduate leadership, desirable as it is has now been exploded. We now have two graduates, a Zoologist and an Architect at the helm of our National affairs and I think that the majority of Nigerians would tell you today that their lives are worse off today than they were 4 years ago. Clearly in my view there must be more to leadership than a University degree and educational qualification.

  Girl-child education advocate, Malala Yousafzai, accompanied  by her dad, met with Pres. Jonathan today Monday July 14 at the State House. Speaking during the meeting, president Jonathan said;

“I personally believe that since about 50 per cent of our population are female, we will be depriving ourselves of half of our available human resources if we fail to educate our girls adequately or suppress their ambitions in any way.

The Council of State, made up of former heads of government, on Tuesday held its second meeting in the year and came out with a promise that the abducted pupils of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, would soon be rescued.
More than 200 girls were seized from the school on the night of April 14 by members of the terrorist Islamic sect, Boko Haram. The incident has attracted global condemnation and protests. Almost 90 days in the custody of the terrorists, there have been many not-too-pleasant stories about the welfare of the girls.

2015: GEJ, OBJ In Fresh Battle

Less than 10 months to the all-important 2015 general elections, there are strong indications that a fresh battle for supremacy has re-surfaced between President Goodluck Jonathan and former president

Olusegun Obasanjo.

The relationship between the two leaders has been replete with mutual suspicion and indifference on the part of the former leader in the affairs of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Obasanjo’s open letter to the president had been seen as the peak of the cold war.
