President Jonathan’s Critics Lack Home Training – Sarah Jibril
Barely 24 hours after the All Progressives Congress (APC) accused President Jonathan of running an incompetent government and flip-flopping in his style of administration, the presidency described critics of Jonathan’s government as individuals who lack basic home training and as a result of their ill-manner and philosophical bankruptcy, they have resorted to bad politics of insulting the president of their country.
Speaking at a roundtable conference on cultural diplomacy in Nigeria and Africa for peace and security, Special Adviser to the president on ethics and values, Dr Sarah Jibril cautioned critics of the Jonathan Administration to show decorum of self and national respect in the manner in which they address the president.
She said, “It is a mixture of ignorance and personal bad manners. In addition, it boils down to philosophical bankruptcy as well as personal ego for people to criticise rather than make contributions. It is the responsibility of the government to re-educate them. I appreciate that Mr President is not responding to every insult that is coming up. Our business in government is to continue tolerantly, patiently and lovingly to educate the people, explaining what we are trying to do.
“Insulting the president is a bad definition of politics. There is a way you can raise observations. But I think they should have much more human civilisation input that you are talking to a person you voted for and he has avenue of advice but you take it personally to insult the president of the Federal Republic of your country.
“It means that person is showing lack of home training. He is showing a lack of good manners and ethical maturity”.
