President Jonathan & Patience are Taking the #FitFam Life Seriously! To Lead Long Walk/Rally with Kanu Nwankwo, Joseph Yobo & More on Saturday



This campaign has really opened our eyes to how much the president loves fitness!

IMG_8571.JPG From his workout video (it’s a must-see click here!) to the first look at him and Patience at the gym in their downtime (see the first look at the #FitCouple here), now Reuben Abati, the President’s Special Advisor on Media & Publicity, has shared more photos, along with a release about a fitness march in Abuja tomorrow.

Here’s the release in it’s entirety,

“President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan will tomorrow, Saturday, March 7, 2015, lead government officials as well as sportsmen and women on an out-door physical training exercise in Abuja aimed at promoting sports and fitness in Nigeria.

The training exercise, which will start at 7.00 am, will include a long walk from the Presidential Villa by President Jonathan accompanied by top government officials, Presidential aides, political associates, leading sports personalities and enthusiasts.

The programme, which will also include jogging, physical stretches and light aerobics, will culminate in a solidarity rally for President Jonathan at the Eagle Square organized by the Nigerian sports community.

Sports personalities expected to participate in the physical training exercise and solidarity rally include Mary Onyali, Austin Eguavoen, Kanu Nwankwo, Joseph Yobo and Chika Chukwumerije, amongst others. The event will be broadcast live on the Network Service of the Nigerian Television Authority. “

Check out photos of the fit couple below!

    SMH! the billions GEJ is sharing this period and we can only fund 60% of this year’s budget…..Nigerians pray that Nigeria’s economy will not resemble Germany’s post world war 1 economy before the end of the first half of the year….

    Fit-to-loot couples:

    There is a direct correlation between Nigerians killed, more oil theft (we know it is not theft really, you don’t steal 400,000 barrels a day – the logistic operations of pumping, loading and getting those oil laden ships out of our water ways is huge – so it is official diversion) goes on….the diversion operation is massive and at 400,000 barrels a day.

    Nigerians and the world are aware that as at March 1, 2015, cumulative death of 34,188 have been recorded to this day under Jonathan based on the raging genocide of Nigerians in Northern Nigeria in the hands of Boko Haram (in government & out). There is a tracking mechanism that is available as public information. The world is also keeping a tally of the commonwealth that Jonathan have stolen from oil theft alone is $60billions and counting, as it is present continuous – so long as Jonathan is the president.

    So this is not sustainable. Based Newtons law of motion, this can only be stopped via a force – either Jonathan is voted out or he is removed by other means. We the people choose to peacefully vote him out. And so it shall be.

    The oil theft contracts:
    President Jonathan have personally supervised the grand theft, through two contracts financed with tax payers money, since January 2012 (possibly fall of 2011) of 400,000 barrels of oil per day by those he hand-picked to safeguard the supply lines against theft. According to Soludo: “First, you (Finance Minister, Okonjo-Iweala) admit that ‘oil theft’ has reduced oil output from the average 2.3 – 2.4 million barrels per day to 1.95 mpd (meaning that at least 350,000 to 450,000 barrels per day are being ‘stolen’). On the average of 400,000 per day and the oil prices over the past four years, it comes to about $60bn ‘stolen’ in just four years.

    – This is done through two 2 contracts that Jonathan signed to rebel leaders from his tribe.

    These are the 2 contracts by the Jonathan administration that is a major feed to the monster bedevilling Nigeria and turning it into a failed state, and a personal estate of King Jonathan, it was fall 2011 & 2012 time frame – widely reported by Wall Street Journal and major newspapers in Nigeria – just google it – I like the composition in the piece titled, Help, This Nigerian State Is Failing By Ayobami Oyalowo:

    ”In August, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) broke some disturbing news about Nigeria. It was reported that some ex-militants in the Niger Delta had been paid about N6.32billion within the past one year by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Yes, for the ‘noble’ service of providing security against vandals for the Corporation’s oil pipeline network. Imagine! The breakdown, as outlined by WSJ, is this:

    Chief Government Ekpumopolo (alias Tompolo), Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, ‘General’ Ebikabowei Victor Ben (Boyloaf) and ‘General’ Ateke Tom were respectively paid N5.1 billion, N1.44 billion, N608 million and N608 million yearly by the state-owned NNPC, as ‘protection money’ to guard the pipelines they once attacked.

    As if that was not enough an insult on the collective intelligence of Nigerians, earlier in the year the Federal Government awarded a contract worth $103.4million (over N15billion) to the Global West Vessel Specialist Limited (GWVSL) – a firm widely believed to be owned by Tompolo to supply 20 vessels for the use of the nation’s military authorities to secure the waterways. Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Ziadeke Akpobolokemi, had last year sent a memo titled, “Award of Contract for the Strategic Concessioning Partnership with NIMASA to Provide Platforms for Tracking Ships and Cargoes, Enforce Regulatory Compliance and Surveillance Of The Entire Nigerian Maritime Domain,” to President Goodluck Jonathan.

    In considering the memo, President Goodluck Jonathan and Akpobolokemi chose GWVSL as the preferred company for the 10-year concession agreement, renewable for two terms of five years each. Jonathan, in a memo dated 9th November, 2011, with reference number PRES/99/MT/61, approved Akpobolokemi’s memo, which the Federal Executive Council rubber-stamped on 5th January, 2012. According to Akpobolokemi, GWVSL “will provide platforms for effective policing of Nigeria’s maritime domain and ensure compliance with international maritime conventions on vessels and ships voyaging the country’s waters”. NIMASA maintains that the concessionaire would help the Federal Government to enforce the sabotage law and collect levies on its behalf. This, in a country that still maintains a statutory Naval force, and without a track record for GWVSL?

    From the above, the current occupant of the presidential villa showed where his loyalty lies…rather than train the military, he equipped criminals and vandals who had taken up arms against the state. No wonder so much arms and ammunition have found their way into Nigeria and our country has now become one gigantic human abattoir where someone is killed on an average of an hour, daily. Between January to May 2014 it has been estimated that over 1,500 people have been mindlessly cut down by terrorists and blood thirsty killers.

      I hear you. You do need to write more clearly though, I had to try really hard to focus on the facts in your comment, to find the main points.
      You’re alleging corruption, preferential treatment, theft maybe. I ask what to do to change that…no be by mouth alone, and no be by broom, or maybe I lost my faith?

      Ah dunno. I am trying to agree with you but….not getting there. So let me get this right. Nigeria is a failed state because Jonathan took government contracts that would normally be awarded to everyone except people from the oil producing areas and gave it to people from the oil producing areas? I am not even talking about whether the pricing for the services and goods is reasonable because that is a test that no Nigerian contract will pass. So it is moot.

      @ Adabornu, why are you bothering yourself. Like some one said, she is the female version of edreamz. She lacks love that’s why she is always spitting negativity on BN.
      I don’t know her but her previous stalking of @busarni’s comment just made me dislike her. let her breathe, life can be fun.

    • WAGAMAMA!!!

      March 7, 2015 at 11:47 am

      Don’t attack Ada Nnewi! He/She is entitled to his/her opinion! There are people who praise/criticise both sides of the fence! Its called being human and i am one of them as are many people!! Both sides have positives as well as negatives, soo why should we encourage what is good but we cant condemn what is bad? SHIFTBIKO!

      If you have facts state them, if not…….. waka pass FAST!!!!

    @ Wagamama the same you said everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. The same you are busy attacking someone else. Are you buhari? Are you related? Will it happen to him according to what the said commenter said? Gej has gone down in history as the most abused/cursed president alive, is he not still alive and kicking? Busy carrying another person matter for head like gala. As if both Buhari and Gej are the best in Nigeria. Ndi iti
