GEJ had the chance to be a superstar.
only in 2011, after deceiving us with his shoeless story, he had put his back into it and worked his butt off.
He would have been a freaking star. A practical shoo-in for a second term with no strong dissenting voice.
For an incumbent, governance is not about what you want to do or what you will do if reelected. It is about what you have done as an indication to what you are capable of doing.
But he didn't lead. He chose not to work. That's why he isn't a superstar. And that's why he'll be going back to Otuoke.
The primary responsibility of government is the protection of lives and property. If you have failed in that, you have failed. Period. Thousands of people have died. Many have been displaced. Then six weeks to the election, you decide to work? Many of those deaths could have been avoided then. If only you had made sound leadership choices. If only you had properly equipped the army early. If only you had shown more concern. If only.....
Let's not even talk about the economy. It's in a rubbish state.
Most of GEJ's misdeeds come from his inability to make the right decisions.
If he were a good leader, Abba Moro won't be a minister still. Neither would Diezani.
When Jonathan loses this election, he ought to write a book 'How Not To Behave When You're a President'
We will all buy that book. The lessons in it would be profound.
