As President Goodluck Jonathan gets set to mark the first anniversary of his presidency on May 29, Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), has carpeted the administration, saying that there is nothing to cheer.
The CPC in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Engr. Rotimi Fashakin, said that apart from the grandstanding and rhetoric, there was nothing the administration has done to improve the country’s infrastructures, education and security among others.
“Beyond the grandstanding and abundant rhetoric of the government, there is nothing worthy of note that the Administration of Dr. Jonathan had done to improve the infrastructural development, Education, Security and Economy of the Nigerian State”.
The party in what it described as, ‘a retrospective look at the impact of governance on the lives of the ordinary Citizens’ also said the poor results of Nigerian students in NECO, WASC and JAMB examinations really typify the sordid decadence of educational standard under the Jonathan administration.
“The regime has proven to be adept in making vain electoral promises. It is still beyond reasonable rationalisation that an administration that has not provided good funding for the existing Universities found it expedient to set up new ones; worse still, the new Universities have not taken off for paucity of funds, the statement said.
The party also said: “The Nation’s infrastructure is in comatose state with no strident plan for improvement. The Roads are in worse parlous state, with receding hope for rehabilitation; stability in Electricity supply remains a mirage!
“The policy summersault in the economic management is enough indication of the confusion at the top echelon of the Nation’s governance. The leadership-induced sleazy tendency is still nightmarish, as the like had never been seen in the Nation’s checkered history.
“The cloud of insecurity that had enveloped the Nation-space is symptomatic of the pervasive ineptitude of the Leadership! There is also the added ethno-religious divisiveness that is supervised by the leadership for vain political advantage.
“Succinctly put, the Jonathan’s administration in the last one year has been a sordid tale in gross incompetence. As a Party, we shall continue to show the Nation the way out of the quagmire of this leadership deficit”.
