    They will get spent in “coming for”, instead of facing and challenging the crawler now occupying Aso rock. Happy Birthday GEJ. God bless you for putting the interest of Nigerians at the last election above yours.

      Birthday tribute to Former President Goodluck Jonathan! 

      Your Excellency,

      There are few leaders in Africa  willing to sacrifice their ambition for the  good of their country men you are one of them 

      Those who accused you of cluelessnesss  are today taking selfies at the Auto plants and with made Made in Nigeria vehicles a dividend of your auto policy.

      Those who said your administration lack direction when it established 11 brand new universities 9 of them In Northern Nigeria  are currently clueless as to how to implement a simple  school feeling program for primary school children.

      Those who insulted you and insisted that the Petroleum subsidy program was a scam just approved a 0.5 Trillion naira subsidy scam  payment 

      The professor who claimed your successor will definitely bring fuel  pump to = 40 have suddenly gone deaf and dumb while fuel prize is currently cruising around 600 naira in some cities 

      Those who claimed the presidential Air fleet was too large and a complete waste of resources have spent over 5 billion naira in just 6 months fuelling the fleet and junketing from one continent to another without any thing to show for it 

      Those who claimed you were heading to Chad to plan more attacks on us were the first to visit Chad after you left.

      Your agricultural policies which yielded a lot of dividend is the next achievement your adversaries are planning to appropriate to themselves 

      When the Treasury Single Account was been hailed as a super invention they concealed your name and in scripted theirs, immediately it had little issues they dumped it on you, tomorrow they will claim IPPIS 

      They said you lacked the political will to fight insurgency yet most  if all the LGA’S you reclaimed and handed over to them have been lost with unimaginable loss of lives 

      They said you were not a soldier and therefore lack the military capacity to lead the fight. Sir those who promised to lead the fight from the front have been dishing out orders from the safety of the bedroom of their wives 

      You left us with one of the fastest growing economy according to CNN, however those who said Nigeria was mismanaged under you have superintendent over the highest job losses and economic depreciation in the History of our great Nation.

      You said your ambition was not worth the blood of a single Nigerian you proved it by your actions.

      As you celebrate another year today , we are very grateful to the King of Heaven for giving us a leader like you. 

      The first female Cadets of the NDA  are grateful 

      The First set of students from the 11 new federal universities who are now in 400 level are grateful 

      The first Sets of students from the University of Petroleum are grateful 

      The First sets of Nigerian Pilots trained abroad are Grateful

      The Recipients of the Presidential scholarship scheme for first class students which was recently suspended by our change agents are grateful

      The recipients of the Youwwin programme and the Youwwin for women are grateful 

      The beneficiaries of the innovation in fertiliser distribution will never forget you 

      The 1000 Beneficiaries of the TETFUND scholarships for Lecturers in Nigerian Universities are grateful 

      The generations that will access information via the freedom of information act (FOI) will see your signature 

      The Millions of Almajiri pupils across Nigeria who benefited from you milk of kindness will live to testify

      Those who ply the Abuja – Lokoja Benin road will remain thankful

      NYSC Members who will benefit and those who have benefited from the increased of allowances from =N= 8216 to =N= 19800 are grateful

      The commuters on our railways know clueless when they see one 

       

      May heaven and History be kind to you today and Always 

      Happy Birthday Your Excellency !!!!!!!- Tribute written by Oche Joseph.

    Happy Birthday to My Hero….You will be remembered for good. You are a good man and the Lord will continue to bless you for the rest of your life. Many more years to you. For some reason, all the tributes on social media today got me a bit teary-eyed….he was an all inclusive president who meant well for Nigeria but many people couldn’t see it. It is well with us all

    It’s so funny how many people are calling GEJ their hero after he was insulted so much when he was in power. Either way, happy birthday, God bless

    #HappybirthdayGEJ to a man that served his country with a heart of love. I believe you would have achieved more if not for the insurgency and some sections of this country playing politics with it instead of giving you support. Some youths i know that didnt have “connections” got grants from Youwin, Scholarships to further their studies in Nigeria and abroad and in your era 18 year olds became certified pilots. Your regime wasn’t perfect but you showed that leadership is not just being the Head. Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.

    Happy birthday, Mr. Jonathan.

    That Buhari is an almost certified failure as a president does not mean you were a good one.
    In saner climes, neither of you should be saddled with a responsibility you are both ill-equipped for. It is a failure of our polity that produces mediocre like you and the present one (Buhari). It needs to be addressed if we want genuine change.

    Today is your birthday and as a fellow human, I wish you Good health and long life.
