‘Jonathan’s appointment long overdue’

THE appointment of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan as the Acting President by the National Assembly, has been described as a long overdue development in the right direction.

It is also a move to stem the embarrassment and ridicule of Nigerians in  diaspora, especially in Britain where Nigerians were being ridiculed.

A Nigerian in the diaspora, Mr. Oritsewinor Olu, who made the observations in a statement he issued in London, said the Acting President was eminently qualified to lead the nation out of the woods and into full blown democracy, noting that he had experienced problems of the Niger Delta.

Olu, who hails from Warri North LGA of Delta State, said that Acting President Jonathan would proffer solutions that will energize the comatose amnesty programme initiated by ailing President Umar Yar’Adua.
