A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has warned critics to desist from abusing President Goodluck Jonathan, adding that despite the names dropping, the President had performed beyond all reasonable doubt.
Onuesoke while addressing a group of Urhobo in Ajegunle in Lagos, said “it is undemocratic, uncivilised and immature for anyone to point fingers and abuse Mr. President.”
He pointed out that it was wrong for anyone to make derogatory comments to spite Mr. President to score cheap political points, stressing that such act cannot happen in developed countries like America, France, Britain and Germany among others.
“Whether we like it or not Jonathan as the sitting President of Nigeria is the symbol of the country. Abusing and calling Jonathan all sorts of names will not take us anywhere. Rather we are rubbishing ourselves before those in other parts of the world. Rather than washing our dirty linens in the public, I will counsel that we criticise objectively instead of abuse,” Onuesoke cautioned.
Onuesoke affirmed that despite the name dropping there are development in agricultural, electricity, transport, education sectors, infrastructural development and creation of employment.
“Going with the aforementioned scenario, can we say the Jonathan administration is clueless and does not know what it is doing or has not made any impact? I am one of the first to agree with anybody that Nigeria is not yet where it should be, but it would be ungodly to put all the blames of this nation’s woes on this administration,” Onuesoke stated.
