A tale of two Presidents

While in office, Goodluck Jonathan’s kids schooled in Nigeria yet he provided forex to school your own kids abroad. President Muhammadu Buhari’s kids school abroad but he denies you forex to school your own kids there!

PMB lost election three times and each time refused to concede. GEJ lost election once and conceded even before votes had finished being counted. Under PMB we have had ‘inconclusive elections’; under GEJ all elections were conclusive.

GEJ, while President, travelled to London and praised the ‘entrepreneurial’ spirit of Nigerians. PMB went to London and told The Telegraph that Nigerians’ ‘reputation for crime had made them unwelcome in Britain’.

GEJ never blamed past administrations for the problems, such as a collapsed railway, that he met. He fixed those he could and today our railways are revived. PMB blames past governments for everything yet he has not fixed any problem. Some say he has made them worse!

Yet in every other speech PMB accuses GEJ of destroying Nigeria. If this is not a case of pot calling kettle black then I don’t know what will qualify as such!
