GEJ has pushed more reforms in the past 2 years than all your decisive leaders from 1979 till 1999, but that doesn't mean the criticism should stop, fact based opposition is always needed.

When shall we start seeing the effects of his reforms. I think the guy also reformed the magnitude of corruption in the country.

He is also the president with the largest number of committees. The guy na all talk, no action.

I believe that Jonathan must have allowed him to resigned based on the same underhand deals that was about to take out Manitoba. Looks like the President just take any advice dished out to him, bad or good.

And that is not a Presidential behaviour. It seems there are some people in Aso Rock whose advice he can not afford not to take, no matter the quality of the advice.

What if the adviser says ''eat shit'', will he chop 'pupu'?

Seriously Oga Nosa, you don't believe what you said above. I honestly think you want to enrich discussion on this forum by taking a defence of GEJ and that's fair.

I am forced to align with Sir Nosa2. Jonathan seems to be like a silent operator. There are so many reforms he has pushed through, they are innocuous because they work quietly in the background. Many Nigerians will not understand many of these reforms and the lawbreakers (oops, lawmakers) are just signing them into law without understanding the significance since it will not affect their "choppings" in the short term.

I had a chat with a high ranking officer at the DMO today and he opened my eyes to a lot of things, of which I cannot divulge. Once again, all I need it total reformation of power and Jonathan has my vote come 2015, if he decides to run.
