Good questions. Bad answers! I won't even harp on about his lack of eloquence.
He lied ofcourse where's d light and he said BH's case is not becos of poverty so what cause it?
Linda where's d video? Sleep dey ya eyes?
This is the best example of how not to be president. Goodluck Jonathan, what a President!
Im so tired.. whats he saying?about she can ask any one on the streets of Lagos and they would testify power improvement ? Really? on the streets of Lagos? Really? Till tomorrow, I still wonder how this man got into power... it baffles me. Our president cant even defend himself. He had absolutely nothing worth listening to say. Im so sad.
I cover my face in shame. Does this guy have handlers at all? His responses are so pedestrian. Oh My homeland I weep for thee!!!
Well linda,it may interest you to know that some idiots will find another way to interpret what ever GEJ says,even he keeps quite,they will talk and interpret it in the version that suits their blog and twitter accounts...He did not lie in any way..
Our president was fidgety and lacked confidence, everyone can't be an orator like Obama though. Although he was wise enough by diplomatically answering some questions he dodged too many key questions.The BIGGEST lie of the interview was when he promised Amanpour that by the end of the year, electricity will be reasonably stable. Na wa o... I just laugh at that!
of course he's lying! he doesn't have the presence of a president and his responses were senseless! how can this weak man be our president??
Jonathan is a mad fellow.
What an embarrassment and ridiculous embodiment of a leader/statesmen
This man is a bag of shit. How can a phd holder say this. I can swear he only has a HND. bt wait, u guys shud luk at d kind of timid human being leading 150m people, a man that cannot lead his own hous. Nigerians will bleed since they said they voted for Jonathan and not PDP. Its in the bible. My people perish for lack of knowledge. How can Nigerians vote a man bcos he had no shoes. I am ashamed to be nigerian
I have never been in support of Jonathan but I think visible progress has been made as regards electricity. We may not be where we are suppose to be, but we are definitely not where we use to be.Corruption is one area that has not witness any measure of fight from this government. It will take Jesus with a whip for corruption to be chased out. It has taken a mad turn, people steal now as if its a task that must be accomplished, it is now a competition of who can out steal the other. May God give us the grace to purge ourselves. Amen
This Mr. President. My goodness! How did he get a PhD? There is nothing intellectual about this man, based on his response to Christiane's questions. It's a shame!
Pple r saying didn't u watch it msheeeeew
all i see is fear,a man who cant even stand for himself when interviewed cannot stand for a nation,its a pity
The president did not lie. The western world have this jaundiced view of Nigeria which is made worse by the ever nagging Nigerians on social media. As per the president's response on electricity, which Amanpour claimed to be worse off, the president categorically clarified that this is a sector that the populace are happy with its ongoing reform. As Nigerians,we need to the negativity about the country that we churn out which the international community uses to deride the country
he appears more confident now ..Thank God.
I am ashamed of the so called president who can't even answer the questions in a straight clear sentences. I think it time for Nigerian youths to take up the affair of the nation.
Can't see any vid linda. HELP!!!!!!!!
I think the president is not a true picture of Nigerian and he should go and training on public speaking.
The president should have stated the figures. Before his government, power was around 2000mw. Since his govt, power generation has risen to 4000mw. Even though that's not enough to meet our needs, it's far better than what we had before. So the president did NOT lie. Shikena
Same here! Can't see the video
jonathan is an ape and the worst ruler in history. He can't speak fluently and he is a blood fucking liar.....Police kill more than disease in Nigeria. Oga Jonathan where dd u c light, where? have you given anyone light aside from your tummy and your nose. Check out the budget set out for feeding in aso rock. A liar and a joker...mtshww. If 9jans lyk they shld nt tell themselves d truth, ur president is fucked. I am a 9jan bt i ve washed my hands off Jonathan. U myt b a poor and slow leader, but try 2 b honest jeezzz. when d lady was callng u out on errytn dt was true, I mean, she got her info ryt, U shld ve jst kept quiet and sed we ll resolve it, and also use it as an avenue to solicit US assistance
@ gbemi you need training on writing english language!
Me I cnt c any video here oo
I've said it before & I'd say it again that this Christine Amanpour interview is a deliberate & calculated plot to run GEJ's govt. down. OH wait... =D
U guys should leave this man alone.did u guys rily expect a mortal like u 2 solve all d problems in dis country in a few years? We should jst be patient and pray 4 him.I believe our future is bright.........UNDISPUTED
If our president can go before the world and lie, then there's no hope for this country!
see as him resemble Baba Suwe...bloody clown
Na wa ooo.. Cold wan kill this guy.. wetin him dey find
Lindiway, were's d video nw? I don't see a thing.
The President did not lie...I live in Gbagada area of Lagos and we have stable power supply now more than before...All of you castigating the President that he lied, Please tell us where you live in Nigeria...Some of you are IDIOTS.Didnt you you people realize that when GEJ told Amanpour that the stoling crude oil are being Refined in Foreign Refineries and she quickly end the interview?... If America can intercept Ship carrying illegal weapon/arms, why cant they help Nigeria in fighting foreigner that connive with Nigerians to steal our Oil? Because they benefit somehow from the loot.
God bless U Prince Charming, U said it all. I love how U analyse things maturedly and intelligently
All of you complaining about Power supply, i hope you guys pay your bills as well...Because a lot people that wont want to pay taxes want Government to do everything for them.A lot you don't know that BH is Politically Motivated.Before you insult or criticize the President, Check your self and Members of your Family. #Idiots
Nigerians who have nothing to offer when given the chance will interpret this interview in many versions that suits their own view,for me he did not lie in any way,he answered the questions more in a diplomatic ways...
i dont think our president did bad, he answered the questions to a reasonable level and you cant blame him for his lack of eloquence he was cold. didnt you guys see the air he was breathing out. We need to put a stop to criticising our country and president too much, doesnt tell good of us Nigerians as a person
I think Jonathan did relatively well in this interview. Jonathan needs to hire people that will be dressing him up to make him look presidential so that he can look like somebody with power and authority. Also he needs to be looking straight ahead whenever he is being interviewed. Looking down on the ground makes him look as if he is a weak leader with no purpose and direction. He came out looking as if he is a meek and 'rain beaten' individual in this interview. But we need to look further than that. It is true that the problem we face as a nation is a big massive problem. It will take us years if not centuries to correct them. But Jonathan needs to make some progress. We know he wont solve all the problems but he needs to start doing serious things to tackle some of the problems. It is also true that all the crude oil and Dollars being stolen from Nigeria are being sold and kept in Europe and USA. So, what is the government of those countries doing to stop it than just criticizing? How many Nigerian's politician are in jail in Europe and USA despite the fact that all our are politicians are thieves? Only 1. I am not a fan of Jonathan though i pray that he succeed in tackling some of our problems.I agree with him that it takes time to correct all our problems. But Jonathan has to start doing things. He needs to stop all the traveling abroad and sit down at home and do something or else he is going down as the most useless,senseless and directionless president ever in Nigeria. May God help Jonathan to see reason and start working.
poverty ke, poverty ni, HOW DO "POOR BOKO HARAM" FIGHTERS BUY AK 47 AND BLOW UP A WHOLE SUV IN SUICIDE BOMBING? HOW MANY SUVS HAVE THEY BLOWN UP SINCE THE INSURGENCY? IS POVERTY AN EXCLUSIVE RESIDENT OF THE 19 NORTHERN STATES? ARE THERE LACK OF POOR PEOPLE IN THE SOUTHERN STATES? DOES WESTERN EDUCATION PROMOTE POVERTY? WILL THE NORTH BECOME RICH BY BLOWING UP SCHOOLS LIKE IT HAPPENED TODAY IN MAIDUGURI? DO BOMB MAKING TECHNOLOGY COME FROM A POOR BRAIN? CAN THEY DIVERT THE HARD CURRENCY FUNDS FOR THESE ATROCITIES TO MEANINGFUL PRODUCTIVE PURPOSES; LIKE FARMING, FISHING, BREAD FACTORIES, PRODUCE STORES ETC
Imagine a Fashola, a Donald Duke, an El Rufai, a Ribadu! And Ngozi eweala, a Tunde Bakare etc as our president as against this joke" of a president...Nigerians better get it right in 2015. Brand positioning is important to any organization or country....we need firm and confident men on that seat, people who can hold their heads up and tell the world..."yes, we have a problem but we are working on our problems, just like every other country" Jonathan is a joke!!
AMAZON,,,AfterMr Prez GEJ lies his bloody ass off.......they round with Banky W ......singing about lying leaders!!!LOL!!I couldnt laugh enufff....our disgrace is almost completehe promised them serious difference b the year end abi???wonderfulllon international TV
why is this blog full of people criticising others, yet they cant even compose two sentences in proper english! shame on you all insulting your unrefined president, yet you all type in the worst ever jargon english..... infact 90% of the libbers type crap english and yet go on to insult people who are featured! smh!linda you need to relaunch and rebrand your blog so you start having more refined people leaving comments......
THI GUY IS A ZOOLOGIST NOT AN ADMINISTRATOR
Shut up!!!!!! Who is the idiot??? I don't have electrictity at home right now as I type, I didn't have it at 11pm to watch the lili-livered weakling's interview on CNN, so who's the idiot now??? And mind you I live in this same Lagos with you. If you want to the defend the numb-skull retard, feel free to but don't label anyone an idiot here. Only God and that waste of flesh, bones and few drops of blood called jonathan know who sold his phd degree to him and why! Meanwhile linda, I can't still see any video. Imagine thousands of people cursing this man daily; many this night have wished death upon him just becos of this interview. I don't even need to watch it to know he lied, he's ALWAYS shifty, a major characteristic of an unseason weak liar!
I LIKE GEJ AS A PERSON BUT THERE ARE TWO THINGS I NOTICED ABOUT HIM, HE EITHER LACKS KNOWLEDGE OF THE NIGERIAN PROBLEM OR HE LACKS THE WILL TO RESOLVE IT. YOU CAN'T JUST CLAIM YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO NIP CORRUPTION OR HOW TO HASTEN YOUR SO CALLED POWER SECTOR REFORM, HE SHOULD ALSO TRY TO BE ELOQUENT AND CONFIDENT. BY THE WAY THE PRESSURE ON THE YOUNG MAN IS TOO MUCH.
Dumb answers. Doubt if this guy even has a Master's degree let alone PHd. Shame dey catch me watching the Nigerian president speak. And he did obviously lie about electricity. Commander in Thief
Don't join d bandwagon,I hate jonathan but it is a fact that power generation increased from 2,500mw to about 4,700 and poverty is not always d cause of terrorism,abdul mutalab and osama were born wealth and affluence
Was this a recent interview?
This GEJ is a disappointment to a country he is suppose to lead. To think we can hv such a dumb skull as our president, despite all d intellectuals we hv is a shame.
JONATHAN NEVER HIDES HIS GLARING INCOMPETENCE,THIS INTERVIEW GIVES NO HOPE OF A BETTER NIGERIA.
1st of all this woman is mad. it is not her fault Why did the president talk to this women through skype. Does she know she know she is talking to a president. I'm not saying jonathan is a good or bad president, but he is our leader. A mere journalist should not be speaking to him like that.
Hmm,mr gbagaun...your english needs polishing too...
he isn't intelligent at all , who made him president.his nose like the road to my village.psheeew
President Goodluck Jonathan told Christiane Amanpour matter-of-factly that the ordinary Nigerian in the streets is happy with the government in their efforts to improve power. And then Amanpour told him of tweets she received from Nigerians praying they have power to watch the interview. He then managed a more relaxed tone, saying we can't solve the power problem "overnight." That by the end of this year, Nigerians will experience a reasonable improvement.
Our OGA still never fluent... SMH
NYC-1 says: This is what happens to a man who is used to scripted questions. See how he is floundering to answer simple questions. Now lets dissect: First point of correction to a nervous man: You are suppose to assure the Nigerian people of steady electricity, not Amanpour. Perhaps, you spewed that nonsense for an easy way out. Second, since you did not challenged what your finance minister said; you even went to the extent of identifying the crooks, how come you are calling on the international community to help you prosecute the oil companies? Is it that Nigeria has no justice system? Third, you double mouthed about BK, and could not accept the truth that Nigeria Police go and kill innocent people claiming it is Bk people they killed. Fourth, I do not understand the premise you were making when you said the problem of power cannot be solved over night. For goodness sake, you have been there for about 4 years and there is no sign of any meaningful effort being undertaken. OK, we will have patience until the end of your tenure. What about corruption? Bankole, Ibori, Bode George, Orji Kalu, etc happened under your watch, and none of them were found quilty amidst glaring evidence of corruption. Your only hunt your political rivals for corruption. Mister selective justice. Finally, Jonas' blood pressure was rising and did not depict the picture of one who is a multi billioner by means of allocations and corruption.
the only thing I saw in that interview was Goodluck Jonathan's BIG NOSE covering half of the tv screen and puffing out smoke (or cold air)....everything else was incoherent, glib, and down-right unintelligible!!!It's hard to understand someone that can't speak eloquently...even a president of Nigeria?! #SHAME#
Goodluck tried I was quite impressed to be honest, OBJ would have done worse and probably even insulted the woman..This Gbemi guy, u cant even write proper English and u have the impudence to insult our president..Idiot
I don't know what people want from Jonathan.Yea, we all know he is notan orator like the likes of Bill Clinton, Barrack Obama, Martin Luther King. He actually did well. Though the part about the light was off but he caught her when he said ''the stolen crude is being bought by refineries abroad and they know the crude oil was stolen''. She actually did swallow hard there..
@ Anon 12:41 AM, which yeye jaundice view does the western world have on nigeria.. why was uncle jonah shaking like a wet puppy before answering the questions? He said there are boko haram in his cabinet so why not mention their names so we all know who the bad people are than cover for everyone..
honestly, i have had a rethink about everything, Jonathan is a human being lyk d rest of us, no1 is perfect, he ddnt lie as such esp about BH, i wish hm success in during hs period of service to the nation. God bless Nigeria
Linda if you like publish my comment,this is third time am sending this,i wonder what type of president you will be if given the chance...GEJ did not lie , some individuals want him to say what they want to hear and if he did not,they will say he lied...Boko haram was not caused by poverty..ANPP formed boko haram when their former governor Ali modu sherif was the governor,yusuf the founder was an aid to the governor.
I'll tell u where I stay,I stay in satellite town and av not had light in 2weeks.well I want2bliv I don't stay in a village.so ask me if I av no right 2call dis man a liar?ehen.stupid mr or mrs anonymous 1.14am.mke una dey help d man patch am up o,u hear.its citizens like urself dat are satisfied with medocrity dat re d MAJOR cause of our problem.pls don't lemme use d aggression of buying fuel everyday on u.IDIAT
And Our Leader lied...smh
Arrrrrrggghhhhhh!Nigeria can neva progress wit retarded citizens like dis 1.chai chai chai,am saddened!jus by dis ur comment,I can teLl u were sent here by Reno.Nicompu
Anon January 24, 2013 at 12:51 AM; Reno Omokri is this you? This was your exact tweet on twitter.
The era of the more u steal the more u have to plea-bargain with and as a result,the more u get to keep has commenced.Me,i haven't used my gen for about 6mths cos i've had significantly better electricity supply and i live in Magodo...infact i make bold to say i want to dash Prof Barth Nnaji my gen set.President Jonathan,d ability to surprise Nigerians leans heavily in ur favour cos they don't seem to expect anything good from u which eases d pressure n allows u to focus...pls surprise us positively.
I no know what part of gbagada this ape lives! Cos we sef no get lyt nw as we speak.. Bn having sleepless nyts these days... Hian!
I did not watch the video. But, whatever the case, we need to use the lessons in every experience to improve our lots as a nation. Focusing on the positives and working on the negatives shall get us past our problems. Above all, we shall never accomplish anything if we play with JUSTICE. So, the key questions in all circumstances should be: Do we decide our leaders as a nation or we have them forced on us by some priviledged few? Do these leaders do the biddings of all nigerians or work for a different interest? Do we hope, pray and work for the greatness of this nation in every little way we can at all times? Will we always churn sentiment and stand by the truth in every situation? As leaders and followers do we apply the questions above to ourselves at all times?
Well they all lie, don't they? I am sure you will tell us Obama doesn't
Where is d video for fucks sakes??
You took the words out of my mouth Olu. I didn't bother to watch the interview as I don't expect anything worthwhile of GEJ or a system that thrives in mediocrity. However, I've long said the West often speaks with two voices. Why do monies from corrupt governments end up in their banking systems without prosecution of looters? If the West can fight terrorism, intercept narcotics and freeze proceeds of its sales, clamp down on ivory trade, blood diamonds, illegal arms trade etc then they can equally stem the tide of crude oil theft which obviously ends up in their refineries with proceeds used to fund militancy resulting in unstable governments, disruptions in the global crude market and ultimately global economy.
Reno Omokri is trolling on LIB,hehehe
What I want to know is why he did the interview outside in the cold.
Are you for real? What do you mean by refined people. I suggest you look for a blog that has only refined people like your fake self or go start your own blog for refined people. Oloshi
You all should shut the hell up. His accent is his accent and he has chosen to not act phony like many of you on this blog. And concerning his answers, I think they were diplomatic but honest. He did not lie about anything.You all make me sick about the fact that the internet is just so freely available to any and every idiot to come and open their loud mouthes to speak bad about people. This was a rash interview but Goodluck Jonathan did not do too badly.
What pressure. Does he have more pressure than Obama ? I am not trying to compare
This is what Nigeria as turned too, Can you call this man a president, Doesn't even understand English
Few hours ago
abeg who vote for this guy ? why are d president if the international body is supposed to be the one tackling all your nation's challenges... i'd be among the people who think nigeria as a nation got her independence too quick.... none of these people up there know exactly how to manage the a country...

Pls dose dat harping on abt power supply,speak for urself only o!!!Rubbish Stupid president n nation!
Lmao!!u sound like Jonathan o!jst like d police academy pics were a plot to run his govt down too?!sit down dere dey talk rubbish,be deceiving urself!!If he had done gud tings for dis nation,won't his gud works have spoken for him?Abegi!Nigerians pls start saying d truth o n it mite jst set u free
Oponu aiyerada!!like say if u no pay bill for Naija,dey wnt disconnect ur lines!!pple like u r d ones dat put us in dis mess!!Never ever willing to say d truth!Empty headed bastard
I guess most of you are from wealthy homes, Please go ask your dad or parents how they got their wealth from? Did they come from heaven with all that money or wealth, sorry to say this that some of our parents are thieves.they stole these money from the government purse and they called it national cake.e.g. the police training collage in Lagos did the school just go bad in one day, for years it has been like that and I believe money is been allocated to that place every year, but one fat cow dey somewhere dey chop d money with im fat children who are now twitting about GEJ,your father awarded the electricity project to JOE Nigeria limited which is his own company and did nothing, eat d money, Let's remove the mote from our own eyes first before we tell others to, if am lying somebody should say so
I'm not impressed at all, was dat our president talking, Where is d confidence, i mean have U seen obama speaking or infact did U watch his innugural speech few days ago...I cant even believe i even woke my dad to come and watch d interview.Funny enough, Amanpour asked him about electricity, guess ya'all heard his reply,Funny enough, there was no light, i watched with generator.#notimpressed
if you guys are bold enough put your names and not anonymous, and lets see who's father is the real thief and who's son are you? ya papa don det steal since 1960 keep our country like.thief children, stop blaming the honest man GEJ, it's your father that kept us like this, who first had the chance to make this right.
A nation deserves it's leader! God help us.
Mr oga living in gbagada, abeg tell me where u see light ooo
@1.53 - Here with u lies the problem in naija.... How can we progress in nigeria with thinking mentality like this
DONALD DUKE 4 PRESIDENT 2015
In my own opinion, I wouldn't say he lied cos if yu come to areas like karu in Abuja there's constant light,I don't even think the light has blinked for over 2 weeks now.
Jona abeg go make Akpabio teach you how to cram govt so dat u go fit talk am anywia fluently, lol
Like U... It takes one 2 knw one.
in d power sector mr president has moved some strides 4ward, nigeria is not really easy 2 preside/govern since every1 believes he/she is an expert.
Well said Mr president.I rightly agree with you on the issue of crude oil being bought and refined abroad by foreign refineries.The American govt will not claim they know nothing about all that is happening and yet they want corruption to be stopped in Nigeria overnight.Let them first of all stop the rot in there govt system by not patronizing in stolen crude then we can adjust ourselves as a nation. It is time we all stop blaming president Goodluck Johnathan but rather encourage him for the little he has done.Power as far as we all are concerned was a forgotten issue in Nigeria.This is something he met at a thousand plus megawatts and now it has gone up to 4,000megawatts which we can all agree that it is improving by the day.Common lets give this man a credit.From a concerned Nigerian.
Fact! Objective Nigerian
U are def correct. Light is better than it use to be. Tʰᵉ only thing he ever did wrong was fuel subsidy.he increased our alawi from 9k to 19k.. A president who respects Tʰᵉ rule of law, allows psycos like elrufai to still live in Nigeria..pls ask elrufai, did he have a house in asokoro before he was in govt?
U all should shut up. Which previous govt did you have light better than Tʰᵉ way it is now?
If it is true a people get the leader they deserve... Goodluck Ebele Jonathan says a lot about Nigerians. Everything about that fellow is just wrong. He claims to be a professor!!!The saddest part is that in Africa the incumbent does not lose. I hate to be a prophet of doom but this guy go dey there for eight years. Truly dark days ahead.
Imagine a looting elrufai who had no home in abuja before govt. Could afford a home in ASOKORO after govt..made money from PDP govt, turned a new CPC leaf in 3 years afta bn thrown out of office, a tunde bakare who is going mad, a general who cannot keep to his words. Who's agenda is to fulfill a certain verse in Tʰᵉ koran.. Be wise Nigerians.do not join Tʰᵉ bandwagans
Aunty, gaan find ur husband smwhr else....what special comment did he make?? @prince, its not a lie if he gives power considerably by d end of 2013. Its achievable!
Pple if the president can justify me not having electricity frm 31 of Dec to the 1st of yr Jan then all's is well...for those who talk abt 2000kw to 4000kw hv u considered the population growth in the period?and hv they done the stats on how much the country needs so they can work towards generating it...it's nt like u dnt hv the resources!
And who said Nigerians voted for JEG simply becos he had shoes smh... Nigerians voted for him cos of CHANGE!! We desperately need a CHANGE and he just happened to be the only diff candidate among the bunch by the way I love 9ja *tongue out*
Am nt so sure if truly u ar a nigerian for saying this out of ur mouth.....anyways I dnt see u to blame sha, I guess u ar among few choosen in this administration. Jonathan my foot
JEG hasn't been the best of presidents but please truth should be said obviously there have been a significant improvement in power supply in the past months... The guy is just surrounded by a group of vultures it can only take the grace of God for him to succeed he sure needs our prayers and support. Instead of hating around say a word of prayer for our beloved country * wink*
I think u should speak for urself, cos for a week now I avnt seen light in dis part of nigeria, and as for yall talking about constant light in ur area, maybe that has been the only significant improvement u can account for under jonathans era but av u measured it up with the with wrongs going on in +h¬ society to see if he should really be praised , quote me any where but this tenure is the worst tenure ever, first from outrageous increase in nepa bills to the subsidy removal, to bokoharam, to bad govt facilities. Some of u need to visit some parts of nigeria to know the reality of this country, 70 percent of nigerians are suffering, 70percent live from hands to mouth not knowing what tomorrow holds but believing tomorrow wld be better, people hawking just to make a living n yet they can't even point to one significant benefit they are getting from the govt, the present light improvement yall are screaming about av u forgotten abt the outrageaous increase in bills that it came with, and also the inequality in +h¬ the bills, some people get bills of 1k whille some get bills of 15k in same strt using the same gadgets, in some cases more gadgets...plz let's get our priorities together and know wht we are figthing for, I didn't watch the interview cos there was no light. The high time we know what we want the better, cos tomorrow when jonathan starts campaining and bragging abt how he has improved power distribution in +h¬ country, it is nigerians like you that will be gullible enough to praise him n say he has dome sumthing significant and then vote foR him the second time.
U neva hala,carry cane go flog her na.do u know who christie Amanpour is?I doubt,she shudnt speak2whic yeye president.ode.lol,u think if its obama fking up dey wud talk2him betta.dats US my dear,not Nigeria dat wud b pretending
@me when ple wants to"deliberately" hurts u, then why dnt u take all measures and prevent them frm doing that to u...pls that's nt a plot it's a. Reality and GEJ is nt getting it right shikenna
Hearing the president speak makes me want to strangle myself. Even with the massive money he looks like a primitive hunter that operates in the deep forest of Bayelsa. Mr President pls attend some leadership classes or conferences and stop embarrassing us, abeg!!!
Power has improved tremendously in Lagos. I've lived in Gidi for over 2 years n I can testify...
Hmmmm, Linda my friend, I don't what to say after seeing the video but as an International Journalist living and working in Ghana, and having traveled to different countries, I will say that Nigeria still needs to beef up and grow faster. On the Qs & As, the Presido didn't do well but he answered and made me happy when he told Amanpour that this "crudes are refined abroad, dat means checks should be on them first".... Follow me @yemilog Adeyemi Adebayo Victor, Entertainment Editor of www.ghanaweb.com
Go to iraq,idiot,d guy is still one of d best president naija ever had...what did obasanjo do in 8yrs?? U dnt knw a leader wen u see one...I dnt knw hw easy u think it is to manage a country like nigeria..hiding on a faceless blog to insult someones father...bitch
Firstly, linda no video.I dnt think anyone in nig who is nt use to dt weather can function properly.eloquent my ass! Dt man is an ijaw man.english is nt his tin. Anyway, he definitely need a gud stylist like me.mr presido did nt represent us well wit his look. In a nutshell, if cold catch me like dt, I go trow english for window n speak my ijaw fast fast commot dere.
Go and train to be president too broda ode,eva heard of an american president that stammered?u just dumb..I wonder wen eloquency became the basis to lead a nation.
Honestly the truth is just that the yorubas will say"omo ale ni a fi owo osi ju'we ile baba e" which means its a bastard that points his father's house with a left finger....why ar nigerians taken stolen crude oil and money abroad wat if they ar reinvesting it back here and spending the stolen money to build up companies in our nation hope by nw many job opportunities will be available for both of us....dnt u thnk?
Dis is jst a brainless comment, wat exactly is ur bone of contention? Is it dt u dnt understand wat 'improvement'is cos we all kno dt power has actually improved especially in Lagos. We now enjoy up to atleast 12hrs straight power whch wasn't so some yrs back. Or is it dt he said CA shld go to d streets of Lagos n ask lagosians cos dts obviously figurative. He didn't mean CA shld literally come to mushin or Lekki and ask abt power supply! Pls always use ur brain b4 commenting and dnt insult sum1 jst cos others are insulting. GEJ is nt d best bt Power has trully improved
Prince charming, I agree with u but 1 thing. Y dnt u wait till d end of year b4 u conclude if its d biggest lie.
Dtz a big lie we no longer enjoy lite @ ikd nw,wen b4 e came in @least .12-14hrs iz wat we enjoy,no improvement in lite 4ma hood,itz decreasement..
Of all d comments here, yours is jst d most brainless. Do u ppl think its beans to talk to Christiane Amapour? Do u thnk gej is d only person dt fidgets. Pls ppl shld think n make research b4 dey talk cos its unfair
Ya stupid! So ur own major problem is his big nose 'covering' ur tv screen
Ya just evil!!! A brainless one for dt matter
Some of you are O YES members. Probably you didn't watch the interview and you just join the insulting train... The Power situation has improved in my area.Please all Patriotic Nigerians should criticize GEJ constructively. Some IDIOTS just say stupid things about the President without verifying or crosschecking the actual thing. Some of you insulting the President are from homes where your Parents have failed in training you rightly .
Ok, me I live in abuja I mean right in town Wuse to be precise, but I use my gen EVERY DAY! As soon as its morning dy take light and bring it in d night and probably take it again and bring bak wen u r asleep and take it some times even b4 u wake up. My pple light no de oo. Fashola, Fashola, how many times did I call u? Think seriously about 2015, don't let tis stupid merger confuse u, u r d man oo. Am frm d north am not yoruba.but ur hand work has spoken.
Jonathan didn't do badly at all... I'm strangely impressed, probably because I was expecting him to fumble.
Even if the most educated and eloquent advisers in the universe crafted answers for him, it would still have to be dumbed down for this joker.
The govt fink we av light but plz sir we don't av light o! I stay in egbeda and d power supply av been horrible even in akowonjo nd agege+ Nigerians er nt easy pple 2 lead we need a hitler in dis country we need d likes of buhari some1 dt wld lead wif ironHandcos corruption av eaten so deep into ds country God help us
But he's not the president.......Its the president's duty to speak fluently and confident.
Goodluck is better off a village headmaster..cos that's wia belongs..hoping on his govt to transform nija is like going to america on foot...EOD..
Hmmm... That's my President talking mehn. no charisma, no eloquence, illogical answers, so many distracting body movements. I hail thee Brother Ogbia, Uncle Bayelsa and Papa Nigeria.
If you watch the interview without prejudice, he spoke ok, Yankee would always be bias against Naija, He spoke ok joor Yankee should mind their bloody business. we have issues we would sort it ourselves. shikena. He wasn't perfect but he did ok.
Linda is a coward!!! Why did she remove the video. Mshw,
Nigerians voted for him because he was seen as the change that was needed......Unfortunately, he turns out to be a vine off the old tree............
Una neva see anytin. Keep voting for thieves and you get what you vote for.Dey no dey send monkey go market.
English Teacher!!!!! Well done!!! English na your mama language shey?
What does he mean the streets of Lagos and Abuja, are they the only places in Nigeria? As for his eloquence, we all know that GEJ has never been eloquent and unfortunately he met one of the most blunt journalists in the world.Back From The Forest Gate
Our president turn mumu , come dey lie like fowl, God is watching you on 3D
PERSONAL MESSAGE FOR LINDA....THERE SHOULD BE A REPLY BUTTON ON YOUR BLOG. THIS WILL MAKE ROOM FOR MORE INTERACTIONS AND CONVERSATION WHICH IS WHAT A BLOG IS ALL ABOUT. MOST PEOPLE DROP ONE COMMENT AND LEAVE, OR IF THE AVE TO REPLY THEY JUST MENTION A NAME FURTHER DOWN AND CHANCES ARE THAT THE RECIPIENT WON'T READ THE MESSAGE.........AND I HAVE ALSO NOTICED MOST OF YOUR ''COMMENTERS'' ARE REALLY BAD IN ENGLISH WHY????????.......AND YOU HAVE NEVER REPLED ANYONE'S MESSAGES.. THIS KIND OF ALIENATES U FROM YOUR READERS. I KNW IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO REPLY EVERY MESSAGE DIRECTED AT U, BUT ONCE N A WHILE IT WOULD BE A SOUND IDEA TO SHOW YOU ACTUALLY READ THE MESSAGES PEOPLE LEAVE ON HERE..THAT WILL ALSO GIVE THEM THAT FEELING OF OOOO LINDA REPLIED ME, HENCE HAVING A LOYAL MEMBER..........SORRY BUT I CANT HELP BUT COMPARE YOUR BLOG TO BN
Omo,Jona tried joor.He gave clear and precise answers.Haters will always have sth bad 2 say..Mtcheeew!The only thing left is 4 him to make snow to start falling in Naija, the country is damn too hot.Just 2weeks hols in Naija,I barely recognised my own skin again(my oyoyo, egovin skin). No wonder almost girl bleaches!
He was fluent! Gosh!are u guys alergic to seeing sth positive in other people? Are u?
No, it was an ancient one!
This is president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan reporting for CNN interview from dallas, over to you Amanpour.This joke of an interview will not fly with other world leaders. Why would he agree to such humiliation.Na wa ooo
U think to speak good English is to add ' fuck' to every sentence u make. ur English is so pedestrian.I don't think u are in a position to comment on his English
i think he answered those questions the way every Nigerian would. But his last answer made sense.those stolen crudes are bought by the American government.
Nigerians are the one destroying this country,Goodluck didn't say power was good in Nigeria,he said that's one area they are working on and it can not be done overnight.Some villagers don't complain about electricity,you don't expect to live in lagos where there are so many industries and you want power to be constant overnight,it takes time. When i was in Nigeria,i had light for a month without a blink and that only proves that change is coming.
Voltron 1.50 am, you have proof that GEJ is generating 4,700mw? The whole Power must be in your Aso rock and your house. I'm certainly not getting any in my Lagos house, office or in any of my friends' houses.
Guys,if u don't have light doesn't mean dt there is no improvement at all it may mean dt u have a local problem eg ur transformar or transmission lines or even u have not paid ur bill, I live in benin and and I can say without fear of contradiction that there has been a tremendous improvement
Why does he insist on going to CNN to disgrace us globally? This is the 2nd time Amanpour is interviewing him and both interviews were disaters
I pledge allegiance to the sovereign state of Lagos fuck the government
Its u dats brainless,even when abacha was the head of state places like ajegunle and its likes gets 48hrs straight power supply,because you are now getting 12hrs, u are saying power has improved,some places in satelite town have not seen power supply for more than two weeks,whether he's being figurative or not,no Nigerian with his or her right senses will second that crap, power has improved my dick.
he's a bloody liar, thumbs up mr. president
am just tired of Jonathan.
Abeg go ND sit Down! Even if dis blog was perfect, u'll still complain. Dats why we're humans ND Linda is not perfect. Maybe u should start ur own lets see how it goes.
Some Nigerians are just on their computer and phone to insult president without any prove,he talked about boko haram,crude oil theft and electricity,even before the interview many people have started sending tweets to CNN about light,what will you gain when you run down your own president even before he came to the interview?OBJ spent 18billion USD on power sector for 8 years without adding 1MW nobody calls for his head,in 1999 our power sector was 1,555MW before OBJ left office it was 1,355MW,who did well here? You guys should grow up and stop this insults.
Most of you out here are just as guilty & insincere as the President you accuse. If u're really honest with yourselves, u'll admit you all use one form of electricity to write on this blog sometimes. I knw there are cell phones & all but @least be sincere with ur opinions. Things are not where they should be right now in NIGERIA but Jonathan hasn't been ur PRESIDENT in the LAST 50yrs+. SO when next u go to the POLLS 2vote. Vote for someone who u can hold accountable don't jst come out here pouring ur ill fated frustrations on just one MAN.
i agree with good luck it is a slow process why should they make it seem like he is not working? also i agree that the boko haram issue like he said can only be treated with military force.
why must they always make it seem like johnathan is not working atall?

U're as GUILTY i REPEAT, because you don't know the VALUE of YOUR VOTE.. USE Ur POWER thru ur VOTES., ALL NIGERIANS SINCE are GUILTY AS their PRESIDENTS.. BECAUSE U GAVE ALL POLITICIANS thru the POWER of ur VOTES. MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE when u go to the POLLS next TIME.:.
he did well
Fashiola for 2015...infact we need revolution..
U guys are absolutely blind deaf dumb n daft... Seriously where is d improved power supply? U guys blabbin rubbish shud ask bizness owners all over Lagos wat power the run their bizness with... Mikano diesel gen is sellin like lifesavers... How abt ur homes... U pay exorbitant tariff for electricity u didn't use or rarely see AND u fuckin come here to preach improved power supply??? How stupid r u... Wat u lack in ignorance u make up in stupidity
How does it make sense to say that cos of nigerias ineffieciency and corruption in guarding her crude oil,that d blame now lies on American govt for buying them!This is d dumbest excuse I have ever heard frm a lazy,corrupt fool who calls himself presodent!We have three refineries in Nigeria for crying out loud! Why r they not functional??Why do our ppl send crude oil to other countries to refine and then they send it down and sell it at exhorbitant prices in Nigeria?Who r the ones stealing this crude oil? Fuck this idiot!
MR Replier!!! What seems to be your issue here? Clearly you're being paid from the villa to spy and monitor what the people are saying on social media networking sites... The president is supposed to the a Leader that's leading 150million people +..... Now he needs to speak english fluently, be eloquent, and confident.... But I'm afraid GEJ lacks these attributes! 2015 is shakky for him right now, and NO we don't want him back!!!! You heard!!!
the guy dey lie bustaid!
Before you comment on his answers THINK, before you Rush to INSULT the OFFICE of THE PRESIDENT be Rational and SINCERE. HE WAS COMPLETELY RIGHT, THE ENERGY SECTOR WOULD TAKE TIME TO TRANSFORM. THE QUESTION you ALL SHOULD BE ASKING IS, HIS HE MAKING ANY EFFORT? OBAMA HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO TRANSFORM AMERICA OVERNIGHT, IT'S STILL A STRUGGLE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. DON'T JUST COME ON THIS BLOG AS EDUCATED & UNEDUCATED ILLITERATES SPILLING HATE. THAT WON'T TAKE NIGERIA ANYWHERE OR SOLVE NIGERIANS PROBLEMS. WATCH HIS SPEECH AGAIN & LISTEN CAREFULLY, HE MADE A *BOLD PROMISE ON CNN LAST NIGHT* THAT WE ALL CAN HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE FOR. HE SAID.. & I QUOTE, "THAT BY THE END OF THIS YEAR, NIGERIANS WOULD SEE A VISIBLE IMPROVEMENT IN THE POWER SECTOR". NOW THAT's A STATEMENT/PROMISE WE CAN ALL HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE FOR, GOD KEEP EVERYONE OF US ALIVE. NIGERIA'S PROBLEMS STARTED MORE THAN 50YEARS AGO.. & JONATHAN HASN'T BEEN IN POWER FOR THE LAST 50YEARS. OBASANJO WHO MADE BOLD PROMISES & SERVED FOR 8YEARS DIDN'T DO MUCH EITHER. IT's A GOOD THING WE ALL CAN EXPRESS OUR OPINIONS WITHOUT HEARING A SUDDEN KNOCK ON OUR DOOR LIKE THE MILITARY REGIME.. BE REALISTIC AND RESPECTFUL WHILE YOU DO SO.. I'M SURE JONATHAN HAS HIS ADVISERS WHO READS & SEES UR FRUSTRATIONS.. THAT WAY THEY WOULD BE UNDER PRESSURE TO DELIVER. AFTER HIS !ST TERM, IF YOU"RE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE SATE OF THE COUNTRY, YOU GO & EXPRESS YOURSELVES THROUGH YOUR VOTES..DON'T EXPECT MAGIC TO HAPPEN OVER NIGHT NIGERIANS.:.
God, shall we continue with same shit. God, i can't imagine to have this man win the next election because then Nigeria will collapse totally.
Light is quite stable in Abuja....pussy 12:09 try looking outside your cave.
Only tax payers in Nigeria have the right to insult Jonathan on the issue of electricity. Pay your taxes!!!!!I do agree Jonathan lacks self confidence. Like Homeboy was staring down throughout the whole interview. People who compare him with governors of flourishing states like Lagos, Abuja, Rivers and Calabar fail to forget that these governors are dealing with their states alone. Try dealing with 36 states that have political and cultural tension. Nigeria has definitely improved and if you fail to see that, then there is a problem. The problems in Nigeria can not be solved in a day. His last answer with crude oil was very accurate.External forces definitely play a big part in the issue of missing barrels of oil When next you want to insult our great President Jonathan, make sure you put your 2cents on the international policies and external forces that affect his decisions. A country with so many states, cultures and ethnic group is not easy to maintain.
your president is a JOKE! Your government is a FARCE ! and the whole country is a LIE !
Many comments on dis blog are as a result of biased and stupid reasoning by disgruntled and ill-mannered individuals frm wrecked and broken homes, who are looking to place dia frustrations and failures in life on another man simply bcos he came frm another tribe. Useless and gd for notin bigots. Most of ur parents are d fraudsters dat hv bn ripping dis country off for the past 50yrs. GEJ hs spent 2yrs+ and he hs made +ve impacts much more dan ur wicked and devilish uncles hv done; exposing d great evils perpetrated and entrenched by ur kith and kin. Here u are using d media to discredit and frustrate GEJ's efforts at sanitising d system. Shame on all u criminal-minded elements whose kith and kin have ruled 9ja for over 4 decades, with corruption and lawlessness to show for it. Tho' u succeeded in looting and converting our common wealth to ur private estates; acquiring gd education and positioning ursef strategically for another round of loot, nemesis will surely catch up on u. Come 2015 we shall c wht will happen; either u'l declare ur fake republic with ur loot or u will use ur loot to plot coup to install dat ur uncle whom u think is well educated and fit to rule.Fashola/El Rufai ko, Buhari/Duke ni!-Dox
What is this guy smoking????!!!!! What planet is he on?? Ask an ordinary Nigerian on the street!!!! Dude, wake up and get your head out of your asssss!!! He sounds like my brother in-law; too smug for his own good. Naija is in deep shit!
what a liar, whenever i call my sis in Nigeria she complains of no electricity
some people are so rude i.e. kaly; can u call ur father a mad fellow???and what is wrong wt the interview? what is fidgety about him? do u expect him to be screaming and aggressive like u guys are in Nigeria?i watched d interview and christin amanpour was shocked when he said d stolen crude r been bought by refineries abroad? What else do u expect him to say? or u expected him to be dancing atilogu on d TV?silly rude people, anyway some people they slap them babas, so am not surprisedgoodluck may God always be wt you, i know its not easy but wt God all things are possible
You leave your house wide open for thieves to come and take what ever they want, yet you are blaming the poeple buying the stolen goods for you problem. Where's the sense in that? idiot!!!
the only question he answered ok was the one on crude oil theft,about light i agree production definately have increased bt the problem is with distribution.total flop on BH issue
THE PRESIDENT LACKS ANY IDEAS ON HOW THE COUNTRY IS RUN .... I GUESS HIS MEDIA ADVISERS ARE IN PEPPER SOUP.CAN'T GIVE A STRAIGHT ANSWER ABOUT BOKO HARAM, ANGROUP THAT STARTED IN NIGERIA AND EXPANDED DURING HIS REIGN. ELECTRICITY HE HAS NO CLUE SO WHAT DOES HE HAVE A CLUE ABOUT .. MAYBE CORRUPTIONhttp://applytojobs.blogspot.co.uk/
Fine and good interview. All our prayers is to have a better Nigeria we can all be proud of no matter where we may be. Evidently,power has improved in the nation. Good luck Jonathan is a progressive leader and has said that power would even improve further. Forward ever, backward never. For better, we support you our president. God bless Nigeria! We are for progress and advancement. If God has to bless Nigeria through Jonathan, so be it. Nothing personal really but for national development, I say MORE GREASE and may God see you through. All the best. Do not let the BH bother you. These are a bunch of evil no goods, they will eventually destroy themselves and their sponsors. Them that live by the sword,shall die by the sword. Enough said!
He spoke about Nigeria as a whole, not Abuja. Light is very unstable in my area. Both home and office. Improved power? Hell NO. Get your fact right mr. President.
Your are sick. Mr brainless or brain dead. I live in Lekki. Both home and office, no light. Go and sleep.
oh GOD! wat planet did jonathan come from? thank GOD i never voted for you. oga of bunkery.
Pls guy let jst pray for our leaders their is no point insulting our president, he is human like us can make mistakes let politely advice in our on little our insults will not make any difference he the president and we are the followers.
Typical! Nigerians will always find excuses for everything, saying he's human and all. He knew he was going to be interviewed, why didn't he prepare himself? He's the President for God's sake, he should learn to sound like one; confident and eloquent and probably he would have impressed me a bit but sincerely, i was disappointed as usual. Christiane had more facts about his country more than the President. Maybe if Jonathan had backed his answer about power supply up with facts and figures, maybe, just maybe i would have pretended to believe him despite the epileptic power situation in my area. We need more than a man with no shoes to solve our problems. God help us
lol..i really love his last statement...
OMG, see how Nigerians are castigating abuses on their Mr. No 1, this is what comes out when SENTIMENTS clouds your judgments. I told people in 2011.. Forget about this man, forget about his sweet name, he does not have the will to drive us, even by an inch closer to the promises land. My problem however is that 'so na like this we go dey dey' until probably 2019 (two tenures), because that same SENTIMENTS still exist in the hearts of NIGERIANS. Lastly if you VOTED JEG and you are among the people raining abuses on him here... GOD IS WATCHING YOU IN 3D!!!! because you have directly pressed 'the spoil key' one the keypad of the progress of Nigeria. GOD bless NIGERIA!
One thing i must say to Nigerians is dat we shud stop lookin for a President that speaks wit an American accent. Our President has spoken with his true Nigerian accent and there is nothing wrong with that. But i always say poverty amongst so much riches is a the cause for BH, same with the Niger/Delta issue. He has spoken that by the end of the year there will be much improvement in Power, we pray so. Corruption is a thing that has to be seriously looked into, let those that have be caught by EFCC be brought to book quicker than they do now. they shud not set example with small Fish, but with BIG Fish that way Nigerian PPle will bliv there is no one above the law.
