As Nigeria Marks its Return to Democratic Government, how would you Rate Goodluck Jonathan’s Administration?

It’s been two years since Goodluck Jonathan assumed his role as President of Nigeria. In 2010, following the death of Former President Umaru Yar’Adua on May 5th, he was sworn in as Yar’Adua’s successor the following day, becoming Nigeria’s 14th Head of State.

On 15 September 2010, Jonathan, in a message on his Facebook Page, said he had finally decided to run for the presidency after wide consultations with various organizations across the country. This single action of his made him the first ever sitting president to declare his re-election bid via social media.

He went on to win the election in 2011 earning 77.7% of the valid votes cast. On 18th April 2011, Jonathan was declared winner of the election. His victory was, however, followed by violence in the northern states over claims of vote rigging.

Last month, he made the Times Magazine 100 Most Influential People in the World list where he was described as ‘possessing  the qualities needed at this moment of great challenges, having come to power at a crucial moment in the history of Nigeria.’

In his characteristic way of connecting with Nigerians through his Facebook page, the President listed his achievements in different sectors of the economy. The well decorated list was quite exhaustive. They include:

Aviation: Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON) project completed in 2010, as a result no commercial airline crashes under the Present administration; From four International Airports Nigeria now has five (Facility Upgrade of Enugu Airport makes it the fifth)

The Economy: On March 29th, 2011, The UK Government in London described Nigeria as the fourth fastest growing economy in the world; The Federal Government under President Jonathan has secured investment commitments worth 4.89 Trillion Naira.

Security: Though there have been about 40 reported cases of Boko Haram terrorist activity what is little known is that there have been over 200 incidences of forestalled terrorist attacks; Establishment of a Counter-Terrorism Strike Force Unit in the Nigerian Police and a Counter-Terrorism Intelligence and Investigation Unit.

Health: The UN confirmed in September 2011 that maternal mortality in Nigeria has reduced by 42% between 2008-2011

Diplomacy/International Relations: President Jonathan has hosted the British Prime minister, David Cameron and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Lagos and Abuja respectively; President Jonathan was received at the White House in June, 2011 where he had a one on one meeting with President Barack Obama.

Entertainment: This administration has provided a $200 million credit facility for the exclusive use of the Entertainment Industry and has followed this up by providing those in the industry who want to access these funds training provided by the Lagos Business School also known as Pan African University.

Power: Set up the Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Company to guarantee investors in the power sector a return to their investment thus stimulating FDI in that sector; Privatization of the power sector on course with the process set for completion in October of 2012.

This is just a brief summary of the very long list, however, all these seem like over-embellished words when compared with the reality of conditions in the country.

The country is still far from achieving stable power supply and in some areas, electricity supply is completely non-existent.

The education sector is fraught with declining standards whereas health service is moving at an ever slow pace.

In January 2012, the President greeted Nigerians with the worst New Year gift ever – the removal of fuel subsidies. Within minutes, fuel prices skyrocketed from N65 per liter to N140 further plunging the citizens into hardship. Although the price was later reverted back to N97 per litre, memories of the protests and difficulties Nigerians faced during that period would forever be etched in our memories.

The deadly attacks that heralded the Boko Haram insurgency is perhaps one of the greatest shocks Nigeria has faced. The country is still enveloped in a cloud of insecurity with many fearing the repeat of bomb attacks by the radical Islamic group. This has been followed by calls from the international community to brand Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation, which if granted would no doubt hamper the country’s reputation.

Placing the President’s version of his achievements against his promises therefore give him less credibility as most of the reforms he assured Nigerians of at the start of his tenure are still yet to see the light of day.

It is quite difficult to believe that he is the same President Nigerians enthusiastically voted for.

How about you? How would you rate the performance of the Goodluck Jonathan administration so far? What are the areas you would want the President to improve upon? What achievements do you think his administration has made in the past months of his tenure as President?

Please share your thoughts.

    he needs to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he is a total disappointment!!!! He needs to go!!!! he has just messed up too much.

    • Sandi May 29, 2012 at 3:39 pm

      Um how?? Because he removed fuel subsidy? Was it not reverted back?
      Because of Boko Haram? Did you not read how 200 cases of terrorism has been avoided? How long has he been in Office as President?? How long has the U.S. been battling terrorism?? What you think U.S fight with terrorism started on 9/11??? Are you not aware that 9/11 was planned by an American, raised and trained in America by the American govt?? Are they done fighting terrorists???
      Am I saying he’s the best things so far? No. But what he has done, did Obasanjo do it? Did Babangida do it? Did Abacha do it? Learn to see something good, go with it and get him to do better, that’s what should be done. You don’t look at a President that has done better than others in the past and pull him down. You pray for him and you get him to do better. He has to go because he has messed up too much, much more than who? When we were under military rule, you fit go bellanaija.com write your thoughts? You fit do am?? Dem for neva cut ur tongue and ur hands comot?

        LOL you have no political awareness what so ever, it’s such a shame. Continue to compromise

      • madam y May 29, 2012 at 10:42 pm

        Seems GEJ’s government is paying you, abi you don’t live in Nigeria ni? He did not “revert” the fuel subsidy decision, it was “modified” because the price still increased! Don’t even get me started on the power situation, today it is Kainji dam that has a problem, tomorrow Shiroro, the week after no gas at egbin. The power is clearly something he can improve, I know it’s going to take some time but we need to see changes, atleast start from somewhere.

        Where is the subsidy talk now? All the promises he made and the things he was going to put in place, what happened to them? I haven’t heard of plans for any refinery yet o, or even revamp of the dead ones!

        As for the military you were talking about, atleast life ran semi-smoothly then, provided people knew how to behave themselves and did not overrun their mouths! There was light mostly, water, fuel, some refineries were still working! And boko who? They dare not under a military regime. After how many years of democracy, I’m still trying to see the dividends because the only thing I can see that democracy has brought is freedom of speech, but freedom of speech with poor quality of life, then what’s the point???

      • Theresa May 29, 2012 at 11:53 pm

        Fuel was reverted back to what? Was it not N65 before? Just because you can afford it (perhaps you get it for free) does not mean you should belittle others. You talk about Boko Haram, have you not seen his lily livered approach to suspects like Sen. Ndume? Is that how America handles its terrorist suspects, with a slap on the wrists? What about the comments of his party’s chairman that B.H is fighting injustice, did your president, who by the way is Christian, caution him especially since the war on injustice by B.H is waged against innocent Christians? It is sooo sad to hear you compare miltary dictatorship and democracy, people like you distort the truth and lead the president astray. Admit it the man is a colossal failure, totally bereft of ideas, he is just bidding his time until 2015, hope he gets there.

      • tweeter May 30, 2012 at 1:01 am

        It’s idiotic to compare the military rule to democracy because someone else disapproves GEJ’s regime in Nigeria.
        All your defense of GEJ is nothing but sentiment over what can ACTUALLY be done better. What do you mean the US is still fighting terrorism? Have you seen the dead equipment used at Nigerian airports? Foreign airlines are forced to add their own private checkpoints and machinery at their boarding gates. Is fuel price back to N65 in Nigeria????

        I can’t even begin to explain how skewed your arguments are. Please if you’re a PDP worker, go and tell your chairman that you people will not rule Nigeria for 60 years as planned. God will not allow such rubbish. GEJ and Dieziani and their incompetent crew have made Nigeria worse off and it is not rocket science!!!

      • Ib May 30, 2012 at 3:31 am

        You are wrong in your assertion.Question:How is standard of living now compared to before?The price of garri has skyrocketed…Our naira against the dollar is going downhill.Nepa is increasing their billing rate when THERE IS STILL NO LIGHT and last but not least Boko Haram is on a killing spree.I just hope what happened in Houla,Syria doesnt happen in Nigeria.Goodluck should act fast.Nigeria IS NOT a training school.

      • Sandi May 30, 2012 at 9:21 am

        @ Jonz, I am politically aware, that I see things differently doesn’t mean I am not politically aware.

        @ Theresa I pay more than you do for fuel. Trust me WAAAAAYYYYY more. Yes it was reverted, not to N65 but to N97. Did he not listen at that point???
        Regarding terrorists, actually the U.S. does give a slap on the wrist to terrorist, hell they give them more rights than they give some of their own citizens.
        Terrorism isn’t something that is fought in one administration, and that people do not see BH for what it truly is, is ridiculous to me. Seriously, all of a sudden western education is haram abi? When IBB, Abacha, and northern brothers were ruling, western education didn’t exist right? Nonsense.
        I compared military dictatorship to democracy for one specific reason, to show the difference between Goodluck and IBB, Abacha et al, that you guys were afraid of speaking against. But with democracy comes pin the ribbon on the donkey. Or what would it be better that he revert to military rule?? Would that now please everyone??
        By the way democracy does not in any way shape or form mean that the President consults or seeks the permission of the people for naming a University, especially when it is a Federal Uni.

        @tweeter, finish reading what I said and you will see that what I did is not actually defend GEJ. But alas any other point of view must be in defense of what you’re against right??? Did I say he has done what can actually been done? Nope, all I said for the little he does, push him to do better by encouragement and yes sometimes correction, but for someone to state he has messed up too much, that person must explain how and must also explain so in light of what Nigeria has had. Seriously after how many years of military rule, you guys really think democracy can happen that easily? Especially since the military rulers are still alive, and even have the guts to contest for presidency??? Una neva see na.

    I think NOI polls did a recent suvey on the president and his administration. In the poll, majority of Nigerians rated the president “good” and his administration as “average”. So I suppose its not all bad sha.

  • EUNICE JOHN May 29, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    So far GOODLock Administration is a total disappointment to Nigerian. I regert why i voted him. HE DOES NOT HAVE PROACTIVE ACTION. He should try and put an end to Boko haram Issue and create jobs for Nigerian Youths that voted him to power. His Administrtion is d worst so far. MAY God help Dis country. Amen.

  • Charmel May 29, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    i think for every country to become developed, there is the need for change and until we begin to accept that we need to sacrifice and let go many things we wont have change. i think President Goodluck’s problem is that he fails to educate the people on the need for a change before implementing the action. he isnt a bad leader after everything and if Boko haram think the best way to show how angry they are with government is by killing innocent citizens, then they are only bunch of idiots.

    • Sandi May 30, 2012 at 9:23 am

      GBAM!!!!

    • madam y May 31, 2012 at 6:55 pm

      Agreed, he needs to educate people on the need for change before taking action. But then again he also needs to put measures in place to support his changes and inform people that this change will occur at a certain time, and not just make changes without any notice!

    Anybody can make a list of minor achievements but the issue is, HOW DO THOSE ACHIEVEMENTS WEIGH AGAINST UR LACK OF ACHIEVEMENTS. GEJ is a huge disappointment( I knew that from the start which is why I didn’t vote 4 him). I’d say maybe he did 15% good against 85% incompetence

    • mimi December 22, 2012 at 12:43 am

      People tell me Nigerians are illiterate and i say no i don’t believe so.
      Now i know that Nigerians are actually illiterate.
      You persecute a president that is actually helping you gain recognition around the world as one of Africa’s top country but the governments who are actually corrupt like in the times of Obasanjo u don’t see.
      Let me tell you something, why Nigeria is changing is because those corrupt leaders are thrown out and new policies and honest officials are being introduced.
      Do you know when Obasanjo was president every country in the world viewed Nigerians as scams(419), thieves, liars but in recent years this reputation is changing because Jonathan has introduced new policies and help catch some corrupt ones.
      You might not see it but i see it. PRESIDENT JONATHAN IS A GOOD PRESIDENT!
      If you disagree with me you are the one who doesn’t know much about politics.
      In the past years the reason nothing changed is because the other officials before Jonathan and likes were corrupt and greedy, their interest was on getting the money first rather than trying to see ways in which Nigeria can be improved.
      When Obasanjo was president how many corrupt lecturers, police, ministers did he bring to light?
      How many of those from abroad who claim to study medicine did he question?
      do you know that not every one abroad who claims to have studied medicine has actually studied medicine, they make fake certificates and come home to boast about a degree that they never had, they also forgot that the lives of many lies in their hands since they claim to be doctors. Due to lack of professionalism these same people happen to be killing many! Jonathan has put a law that Nigerian citizens who claims to study abroad and now wishes to return home to work in his/her new areas of expertise should be investigated. What other president has done this?
      Please people stop hating on Jonathan and try to see the good he has done.
      Go Jonathan Go, make your people proud!

  • Solange May 29, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    i think,oga goodluck is trying his best after all nigeria was in shambles before he came on seat,nigerians want overnight miracle which not possible,at least we dy get light pass b4.as 4 d education sector i tink dat sector will improve if we students become more disciplined and stop malpractise in both secondary and tertiary levels even primary lvl.

  • Dear Mr. President May 29, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    In a 1999 Nollywood movie, which name I cannot remember now, the opening credits featured a song that struck a chord with me and which I never forgot to this day. The first line of the lyrics went “Oga Obasanjo, when you reach Aso Rock….”

    It was basically an appeal song by a tortured but hopeful soul in touching pidgin English, to the then newly elected President, OBJ, asking him not to forget the masses when he assumed office, and further outlining measures he should take to improve the socio-economic situation of our dear country.

    If only the singer of that song knew how good we got it then relatively; OBJ went to Aso Rock, and nearly transformed it into Olumo Rock, choosing to make a fortress out of the presidential villa by seeking a 3rd term. He was later banished to his chicken farm thankfully.

    More than ten years later we are still singing the same tune. Now we are belting it out, while using spoons to create a beat on our empty plates, in NEPA induced pitch darkness, cowering from religious bigotry, kidnapping and a the new threats of bomb attacks.

    Any Nigerian on the street could outline what areas of the country need our new President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s urgent attention – power generation, security, job creation, the Niger Delta question etc. History has taught me that when we clamor for certain things from our government in Nigeria, we get something radically different.

    As for me, I believe that everything we require the government to take action on can be summarized in 3 simple words – Bread, peace and freedom. By bread, I mean food on every Nigerian lunch table and the development of agriculture. Peace refers to the Delta militancy, the rise of religious bigotry, kidnapping and the breakdown of law and order. By freedom, I am talking about socio-economic emancipation, a truly laissez faire economy with state and individual rights so that businesses can boom, and entrepreneurship and private enterprise is encouraged. My own list below touches the little things, the economists, the opposition, social critics, government watchdogs and political lobbyists fail to pick up on.

    I have decided, like any long suffering Nigerian citizen to voice my grievance and draw up a list of things that GEJ must take care of during his 2nd stint in power. I have decided to draft a letter to the president, and copy his wife Ms Jonathan. We too, need shelter from the rain under the national umbrella. Maybe my list is better off under my pillow, with my broken tooth, as I wait for the tooth fairy……….http://woahnigeria.wordpress.com/2011/04/25/a-letter-to-our-president-and-his-wife-too/

  • Pure May 29, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    @oma I think that statement harsh! He inherited lots of problems, and it’s clear that because of his Tribe many insurrections, in the Boko haram etc, terrorist sponsors who feel government belongs to a certain group! I think he has a lot to do, but his heart is in the right place, let’s give him a chance!

    • philipa May 29, 2012 at 6:58 pm

      did you get paid for that questionable answer you just wrote? The fact is, there are things he should be taking care of instead of renaming universities, which if he doesnt know is unconstitutional under a democracy. He has power handed to him to achieve greatness and move nigeria forward, but rather his stagnate and using excuses trying to help his cabinet and his family loot nigeria. I can see why they wanted him in power, because they wanted someone to control.

      • Sandi May 30, 2012 at 9:05 am

        I happen to think a President can do more than one thing at a time. Like name a University on Democracy day AND see to the concerns of the country??? No??? It’s impossible??

        And why can’t I reply to the people that replied to me above??

      • ij May 30, 2012 at 9:30 am

        God bless you for that answer, to take on the mantle of president-ship , what you are invariably saying is that you want to move the country forward and that you want to do better than the last president ,what can our president actually say he has achieved apart from cassava bread.
        He should never have run for presidency if he could not for the life of me anticipate the work involved, its not only to come out and make puke inducing , stupid speeches and empty promises. HE IS IN THE RUNNING TO BECOME THE MOST USELESS PRESIDENT EVER TO GRACE THIS EARTH

    • Duchess May 30, 2012 at 10:05 am

      ermm……Nigeria is not a training camp….before he decided to run for election, Nigeria has had those problems and it is expected that while you are running for presidency, you already have policies to implement that will tackle those issues…you do not run for presidency with an airhead and then when you get elected, u sit in your presidential and start scratching your head on how to solve those problems n then you start bringing out half-baked plans…..The presidential seat is not a ‘let-me-try-and-see-how-this-goes’….He should get his priorities right and start using his head to reason and not his arse or looking up the asses of those in his administration.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the lowest score and 10 the highest, Mr. President scored a -10. A total failure in all sectors: security, power, agriculture, health, education and aviation.
    Security: Boko Haram. I need not say more
    Power: the deafening generator sounds speak for themselves
    Agriculture: Cassava bread that no one eats, importing rice, palm oil, groundnut etc
    Health: Incessant strikes, hospitals without equipments
    Education: The number of students that failed WAEC and NECO this year alone.
    Aviation: Has anyone ever been to the Muritala International airport? Not even OR Tambo in SA or Kotoka in Ghana are that bad.

    I will give him F for NO EFFORT. I don’t expect him to automatically change the country but he doesn’t have any vision/plan. For example, Americans criticize President Obama, which is what comes with the territory. He’s not solved the economic problem but he has a vision and have accomplish some important things which allows us to agree or disagree with him. But, Jonathan Goodluck looks like a walking dummy. Nigerian leaders don’t do anything, they simply recycle incompetent leaders to lead the country which explains the reason country is not developing the way it should. It’s interesting how a country filled with people who are highly educated struggle using their common sense. It’s not about the degree, or accomplishment that someone has but how he/she can handle tough situations, use his/her judgement. So, Jonathan forget about the grading of your presidency, you haven’t showed or proved that you are a competent leader. What about your work on that first, then we can grade you on your performance.

    He is a product of the Perpetually Demonised Party(PDP). I am not surprised that he hasn’t performed.

    Goodluck Jonathan’s administration is a shadow of it’s self reason because him was voted for base on sentiment, they where some level of political coalition like ACN collating with Labour just to vote for the man from south side, so that is what you get when vote is base on sentiment, you insecurity, favoritism, nepotism and corruption, they say that the economic GDP has move upward but we cant see the physical impact on the people, so there this admin has done nothing rather than killing and looting.

    Bro and sis, i think the solution begins with fairness and truthfulness. For Nigeria to move forward in the next election, the swooning of the governorship / presidential position should be done not with the Bible or Quaran. Grace is being misused and God as kept silence on Nigerian’s case because Nigerians have messed it all.
    The elected president must sworn with a metal representing the god of Iron, or with the water from a car battery cell. When this is done and promises made are not adhered to, the judgement will come upon them instantly, and death will catch up with them on spot. When one governor or president die in this mood, any elected one will sit up and Nigerian will not be denied of their rights and privileges anymore. 2014 will make 100 years of Nigeria amalgamation and no good thing is said about the country. In fact, rate of poverty, unemployment, deny of human right and the social well being of our citizen are handled nonchalantly.
    God have mercy…..
