This is nothing but cajoling; pure rhetoric as usual, and full of B.S. and insincerity. How can anyone say Nigeria is ok or progressing. At least I am happy that Jonathan did not even say anything about corruption being reduced because he knows everybody will know that's a lie.

54 years of retrogression and still counting. Oyinbo man came to enslave us and our own people continue to perpetuate this enslavement by stealing us blind way beyond their needs and ridiculing us in the worst way one can imagine.

There is nothing in order in our country. Everything "jagajaga"; no leadership; no progress. There was nothing like "okada" when the white man left us. We have become much richer by way of oil and yet we are using motorcycles as mode of transportation as if we are poor. We can't even plan our cities well or plan for better roads which is the main reason we now use okada because they can go to places that are not motorable.

Stop lying to us; stop deceiving us; stop stealing from us; just stop doing anything; we know anything you do is unprogressive. What is the use of self-governance when we can't even do it right.

I have lived in oyinboman's land for donkey's years and I like it much better than where I came from. Yet it is not a perfect land. It has its own troubles too; e.g., racism. So, you know I am not expecting Utopia. But at least I can fight racism to an extent. How can you fight a fusillade of problems, caused by financial corruption, that my country provides.

Why can't our own laws catch and punish the thieves when the same laws can do so in another county? Why are our leaders bigger than our laws?

The lies on economy cannot now be substantiated. In America, a country we copy, new job creation is published every month. Where is ours? What makes a robust economy, squandermania, looting, corruption and gross mismanagement? Now that the price of crude has started to fall, we shall soon see who is lying: Mr. Jonathan or Mr. Omotayo.
The earlier we stopped the deceit, the better. Mr. Jonathan did not tell us why the peasants (Agbekoya) came out preparing for war after the Osun State election result was about to be declared. But we know that the presidency was figured in a planned rigging that the peasants wanted to resist.

In 2011, my first daughter narrowly escaped death in Kano where she was on NYSC scheme and was deployed to a polling station. The massive rigging then caused the North to burn. Are these the signs of electoral credibility? If Mr. Jonathan has nothing true to say, it is better not to address the nation. Enough of the lies.
God save Nigeria.
