Goodluck Jonathan Reveals Those Running The Affairs Of This Country
Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has said state governors are the ones “running” Nigeria.
Jonathan made the remark while emphasizing that the Nigeria Governors Forum remains the best platform to discuss issues affecting Nigeria.
He spoke in Benin, Edo State on Sunday while addressing journalists, NAN reports.
The former president lamented over the antagonism between Southern and Northern governors which he said was uncalled for.
Jonathan stressed that the coming together of all the governors in a round table to discuss and proffer solutions to issues affecting Nigeria would help the President.
“Governors themselves should continue to meet, I don’t really love a situation where the Northern governors will meet then the Southern governors will cry foul.
“Then the Southern governors will meet then the Northern governors will cry foul,. That will not help our country.
“The governors through the governors forum should meet, they are the people who run this country, the President is just one person in Abuja.
“The states, especially in a country where the local governments are very weak, it’s the states that people fall back to.
“So if the governors of the states meet and dialogue, interrogate things that are good for this country, then we will move forward.
“I don’t really enjoy the antagonism between governors, they should come together and discuss.
“If there are issues affecting one or two states, I think the governors should see how they can collectively come with a way to address those issues,” he added.

Why Chad President, Mahamat Idriss Deby Must Listen To Primate Ayodele Now
*Why Chad President, Mahamat Idriss Deby Must Listen To Primate Ayodele Now
‘’A man who does not listen after many strong words are spoken to him will be destroyed all at once and without help.’’ ( Proverbs 29 Vs 1)
The president of Chad, General Mahamat Idriss Deby may be walking into a dangerous zone if he doesn’t redirect his steps with the prophetic warnings which Primate Ayodele gave many months ago concerning his administration.
Primate Ayodele who foretold the death of his father, Idriss Deby Tuno, had warned the current head of state that he will singlehandedly cause issues which will turn him against the people during his administration.
In one of the many videos the prophet featured in, he revealed that Mahamat Deby would attempt to turn himself into a civilian president but it will be rejected by the people. He strongly advised him not to try it because it would plunge the country into crisis.
Primate Ayodele warned him to be very careful and watchful about his intention to become a civilian president because it would not be accepted.
These were his words
‘’A major crisis is coming up in Chad. The Chad president must restrategize. He will want to transform to civilian president but they will kick against it. He must not do this, he must be very careful about this, he must be very very watchful.’’
In fulfillment of Primate Ayodele’s warnings, Chad has come under heavy tensions in the last few days after the electoral commission made a surprise announcement Tuesday that presidential elections to end three years of military rule in the central African country will take place May 6, several months earlier than planned.
In making the announcement, the commission said the elections will mark a return to constitutional order and the end of General Mahamat Idriss Deby’s transitional period, now in its third year.
However, it is not yet known how many candidates will run in the May 6 polls. But last month, Chad’s former ruling Patriotic Salvation Movement (MPS party) said that Mahamat Idriss Deby will be the party’s nominee.
In Primate Ayodele’s prophetic warnings, three major things were mentioned which are Major crises coming up in Chad, the president will want to transform himself to a civilian government and lastly, his ambition will be kicked against. As we speak, the country is in serious crisis already, the president has also begun plans to turn his government to a civilian government as against the prophet’s advice; two out of the three prophetic warnings have come to pass.
General Mahamat Idriss Deby is currently on his way to fulfill the third warning which has to do with the rejection of his government by the people and if care isn’t taken, he may face the unexpected just as Primate Ayodele has warned.
In another interview with Independent Newspaper, Primate Ayodele warned Mahamat Deby to seek the face of God before attempting to transform himself into a civilian president.
‘’Chad: They will be attacked and their soldiers must be careful because a major terrorist disaster is coming that will shake their military. The democracy of Chad will be threatened. The head of state will want to transform into a civilian president. He must be careful and seek God’s face before doing it. The country must be careful to avoid entering a wrong agreement.’’
This further shows that the prophet has been constant with these warnings and it is more reason General Mahamat Deby should listen because if there is no reason, Primate Ayodele will not speak.
There is still time for him to retrace his steps because the message of the prophet shows there is serious danger ahead of him if he continues in his quest to become a civilian president.
‘’A man who does not listen after many strong words are spoken to him will be destroyed all at once and without help.’’ ( Proverbs 29 Vs 1)
