Former President Goodluck Jonathan says he is ashamed that Nigeria is now being used as a negative example in the international community. He cited recent instances when the Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, mocked the poor state of security in Nigeria and the naira’s weakening status.

Jonathan spoke at the inauguration of the first bridge built by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, on Friday night.

The former President lamented that things were so bad in the country that Nigeria had lost its respect in Africa.

He said, “He (Ghanaian President) said Ghana is not like Nigeria where cattle roam the streets. At another occasion in the United Kingdom, he made scathing remarks about Nigeria’s currency.

“I feel ashamed as a former President that the president of a neighbouring country used Nigeria as negative examples.

“If a neighbouring African president will use Nigeria to make negative examples, then we as leaders must know certain things are wrong in the country. That means we as leaders must change the way we do things.”

The former President, therefore, urged Nigerian leaders to show serious concern, noting that many things had gone wrong in the country.

other Africans now laugh at us, because we were just taking things for granted, we have abundant resource but we perish and lack, we bow to our former colonial masters, we beg, no electricity, we are still busy trying to make our roads, we are trying to make the train system work, while other African countries like Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, even Uganda, are surpassing our transportation system, other African countries dont suffer electricity like we do, again we must find some excuses to explain why we can not make it work.

The most humble president in nija,you failed but your administration was far better than this present one whom the leaders always claims to be saints  while they are looting our money in a daily bases.Our problem here in nija is that we're over whelmed with religious and tribalism which leads to killing ourselves.
Go to other african countries you will know that nija is behind we're only answering giant of africa for mouth,i have been to Senegal,Ghana,Gambia,Morocco,Algeria and many other africa countries and i found out that they have steady electricity and water while here in our country no water and no electricity while citizens are paying their bill every month.
My prayer is that may the wind of God blow upon nija and consume all the evil men and women that are the problems of this God blessed nation in Jesus name amen.

no more thieves, look at our nation, so shit, so stone age, a joke, a story by others to laugh at, a beggar attitude, poor in producing, destroyed the ecology of the niger delta, polluted air of river state, Taliban of the northeast, cows of ravages, kidnapping of the south areas, now we want to even add drugs like Mexico, superstition, and rituals, so much for the BACKWARDNESS.
