PostSubject: Jonathan failed, not his generation – Fashola.   2015-01-14, 06:51

The Lagos State Governor, Mr.
Babatunde Fashola, on Tuesday said
President Goodluck Jonathan’s
comment that his generation had
failed Nigerians was personal to
him.
He told the President to accept
responsibility for his failure to
address the challenges confronting
the nation.
Fashola spoke at a town hall
meeting organised by the State
Ministry of Transportation which
had transport unions, including the
National Union of Road Transport
Workers’ in attendance.
The governor said the president
should summon courage and own
up to his government’s failures in
the last six years rather than point
accusing fingers to past leaders.
He said, “He (Jonathan) said his
generation has failed; he should
account for himself. I refuse to be
part of the generation the
President is referring to.
“He is in his 50s, I am also in my 50s.
But I don’t want to join that
generation because my own
generation has not failed; I have
done well on my job and I am
proud to say so. If he has failed, let
him account for himself, he should
not include us.”
The governor said the issues that
would form the basis of debate for
the elections would be how well
the citizens of the nation had fared
under the present administration.
Fashola said he was pained about
the situation in the North East
region of the country where
citizens had become refugees in
their country due to the inability of
the government to tame Boko
Haram.
He said, “Instead of telling you how
he plans to secure the nation, our
president was telling you they
tried to kill him four years ago and
we did not know. That is a serious
national security issue because
nobody wants our Commander-in-
Chief dead. If anybody tries to kill
him, we should have known. And if I
was Commander-in-Chief, and the
person who tries to kill me is in a
South African jail, I will ask that he
should be repatriated to Nigeria to
face punishment.”
Fashola accused President Jonathan
of looking for sympathy to woo
voters ahead of the presidential
election.
Earlier, the heads of the transport
unions present took turns to
endorse the governorship
candidate of the All Progressives
Congress, Akinwunmi Ambode, who
was present at the occasion along
with his deputy, Mrs. Oluranti
Adebule.
Ambode assured the transport
workers of his commitment to
further growth of the transport
sector if elected into office.
