Pres. Jonathan Decries Use of Social Media to Cause Anarchy



Goodluck Jonathan Bella Naija

President Goodluck Jonathan has decried the use of the social media worldwide to create social discontent and anarchy in the society.

Jonathan said this when he met with a delegation of traditional rulers and leaders from Bayelsa, on Tuesday, in Abuja.

He said that the social media initially meant for good had become a tool to disseminate evil.

‘‘These days, there are all kinds of stories. It is all over the world, leaders are being lambasted, especially with the social media now.

“People use what knowledge it has created for negative reasons.

‘‘Just as I was told that the person who invented dynamite, later regretted that invention because he thought he was coming up with something to solve human problems.

“But when he got to know about the level of destruction, human lives that are being blown up because of explosion, the man regretted that invention.

“What is supposed to be used for the common good was turned to negative purposes.

“I always say that I will not even expect praises now because hardly do people praise serving leaders. It is when you leave, people will begin to know.

“When you leave, they will begin to compare what you have done over the period vis-a-vis what others have done.

“Then they will compare you with whoever takes over.”

Jonathan pledged to do his best to create the enabling environment for the nation’s economy to thrive, notwithstanding the challenges facing the country.

“I will do my best so that by the time I will leave, you will be able to say that when our son was there, he served the country well so that one day, another son of Bayelsa may be given another opportunity to serve Nigerians.

‘‘I assure you that I am here by the grace of God with the willingness of Nigerians. If Nigerians say I shouldn’t be here, I wouldn’t have been here. We contested election in 2011 and Nigerians voted for us.

‘‘I am your own. if I don’t do well, the shame will be on you. If I do well, you will have some kind of pride. I will do my best.’’

According to him, 2015 will be full of challenges for Nigerians because of the early elections, saying everywhere will be overheated as from Friday.

Earlier, Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa, who spoke on behalf of the delegation, said they were in the State House to felicitate with the President and his family in the spirit of the festive season.

He assured the president that Bayelsa people would not relent in supporting their son and wished him a victorious new year.

Dickson commended Jonathan for his transformation agenda which, he said, was having a positive impact on Nigerians.

He said the President’s home state was peaceful and was in safe hands.

The high point of the event was the presentation of a giant seasonal greeting card to the President on behalf of the state.

Notable personalities in the encourage were the Amayanabo of Town-Brass, Alfred Diete-Spiff, the state Chief Judge, former Managing Director of NDCC, Timi Alaibe, traditional rulers, clerics, among others.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    This man is scared beyond belief of what people (Citizens ) were saying about him. A situation his mouth piece can not control. The Internet as an equalizer for the oppressed and the disenfranchised used to air their mind/ opinion. An incompetent president. Where were you when Boko Haram members kidnapped those innocent students, your action/inaction said a lot about you. Not to talk about your wife shedding crocodiles tears in public. your spin doctors cannot spin that silly reaction from you and your wife.. That response showed that you are incompetent and cannot perform the duties of the your office effectively Sir. The Internet gave us ( Nigerians ) an opportunity to point that out to you, how badly you are performing your duty. Without the Internet we ( your employer ) would not have been able to do so. So why don’t you shot the fuck up and get the hell out of that office sir. Thank God for the Internet ordinary people can air their opinion without any censureship from you and your goons Mr. President, learn to accept some criticism. Don’t stay in the kitchen if you can’t take the heat. Don’ t try to hide behind the word anarchy to stop your employers ( the Nigerian people ) from criticizing you even when you are wrong/ showing us your are not worthy of that office. Do you think you are God? We voted you into that office, we will vote you out of that office because of your incompetence. What the fuck are you talking about. Anarchy my ass.

      if he calls this anarchy, then i wonder what his idea about the freedom of speech is. which is the fundamental ideal of democracy.

    Obviously Jonathan is drinking too much ogogoro, or maybe he bought some pure ganja when he went to London over the weekend! Clueless bastard. If he surfed the web himself I am sure he will realize how badly he has performed. His cronies make sure he is always HIGH, so they can make decisions for him and pad their own pockets. JONATHAN you ARE FIRED! And we will NEVER look back and compare your term with any other past or future leader because yours was an aberration. We will have a big party and pray that we never experience it again. Then we will put you and your many harlots, oduah, ngozi, dezieni and fat mama Jonathan in jail. Shameless greedy lot!
