President Jonathan says his name has brought good luck to Nigeria

President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday Saturday May 25th that his first name has brought some good luck to Nigeria. While granting an interview yesterday, the president said:
"Traditional societies attach some values to names. That is why people select good names for their children. In the scriptures sometimes, when God sends you on some special assignment, He could even direct, ‘change the name of this child from this to that. But the name in itself does not make much difference because even from my village, there is one of my peers that also answers Goodluck.  Another one that is a little older than me answers Lucky from my small village and I didn’t see the good luck and lucky in them.
“In terms of bringing my name to bear in Nigerian affairs, within this period, we have our challenges. Of course, you are aware that we have our security challenges. But in spite of the security challenges, the country is moving on. I will say yes, it (his name) brought some good luck to the country.”
 With the emergence of a third terror group, I don't think so, Mr president.

This is the full text of the interview..if you like publish it...but stop copying where you like only..

President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday said despite the security challenges in parts of the country, his first name had brought some good luck to Nigeria.

Jonathan said this while granting an interview to a 10-year-old Nigerian girl based in California, Miss Zuriel Oduwole, on the sideline of the ongoing 21st ordinary session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the Africa Union holding in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Oduwole who was said to have earlier interviewed some other African leaders is working on a documentary on the union’s 50 years of existence.

She had sought to know from Jonathan how much good luck his first name had brought to the country under his leadership.

Jonathan said religion and traditional societies attached some values to names.

This, he said, was why parents select good names for their children.

He said, “Traditional societies attach some values to names. That is why people select good names for their children.

“In the scriptures sometimes, when God sends you on some special assignment, He could even direct, ‘change the name of this child from this to that.’

“But the name in itself does not make much difference because even from my village, there is one of my peers that also answers Goodluck. Another one that is a little older than me answers Lucky from my small village and I didn’t see the good luck and lucky in them.

“In terms of bringing my name to bear in Nigerian affairs, within this period, we have our challenges. Of course, you are aware that we have our security challenges. But in spite of the security challenges, the country is moving on. I will say yes, it brought some good luck to the country.”

On the legacy he would want to leave behind at the expiration of his tenure, Jonathan said he would like to be remembered for sanitising the nation’s electoral system as well as fixing the power poor and security challenges.

“If we can stabilise the electoral process, sanitise the political environment, then we make sure that we have power in this country and of course, security, every other things will take off on its own,” the President said.

Jonathan said he would also like the sanitation going on in the electoral system to be internalised in all sectors of the country.

He said, “People should be allowed to decide who governs them, who represents them at the parliament, who runs their affair at the local government level; the country never had that opportunity and the elite were no longer interested even in voting.

“Democracy was almost left floating in the hands of people who ordinarily have no place there. So, we are sanitising the electoral process. Now, Nigerians can select who they want to be their President, who they want to be their governor, who they want to be their senator, who they want to be their House of Representatives member or even their state House of Assembly member or even chairman of their council.

“We are doing that and I want that to be internalised in all the ways we do things. I want people to remember me for that.”

Jonathan also talked of his desire to put the nation on a better stead in the area of Information Technology.

He said with technological development, power could be stabilised and then, micro, small and medium scale enterprises would be encouraged.

These, he added, are the areas that create jobs for the people, improve the economy and reduce poverty to the barest minimum.

Also, the President said for African countries to come out of the woods and take their rightful positions among the comity of nations, their leaders must deepen democracy by avoiding abuse of power and impunity.

Better answering Obama because in terms of security in Nigeria, it has become worsen with kidnapping and stealing everywhere compared to your predecessors. In the states, security seems a little improve compared to his predecessors. So forget name and act. Good name is right and fine but you must act and keep striving, be righteous man.

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. You may think that this is just comments from just a tiny drop of Nigerians in the country BUT you should try to just place yourself ALONE without the military or police at a central area for example like Obalende and you will see what the true nature Nigerians have become. Lets see if you can survive the hardship you have brought on the people with your tenure. Where is the minimum wage you used the gain votes from people. You will only bring destruction if you come in a second time. As far as I am concerned your lilly-livered personality has only been able to make non-corrupt people corrupt and those who were already corrupt more corrupt people. You should be ashamed of yourself and causing you is just a waste of time because Lord knows that and your party and any other party have only the more corrupt people to offer us in the next election. The big question now is who will be the next Nigerian President that will not give us excuses for promises, who will make the people to help in cleansing the country of bad evils physical and spiritual. Who the Almighty Lord Most High will give to help us out of the depths of suffering that Nigeria finds itself. Whom will work together with the people to make Nigeria a respectable country where Obama can come to visit and the government won't really spend more than 500 000 Naira to welcome and NOT 500 000 000 naira as GEJ government would want to spend. I bet you that if GEJ were to go to USA they probably won't spend much to receive him. Do you know how many people in his government are not happy that Obama is not coming again? You know how much that could have gone into roads, hospitals, education, agriculture.... that his government would have spent if Obama had decided to come? Shame on you gej,,,shame on you.
