Former minister of education and leader of the Bring Back Our Girls group, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan does not deserve the hero tittle for accepting defeat in the just concluded presidential poll.

President Jonathan had called General Buhari to congratulate him for winning the election before INEC chairman could announce the final result of last Saturday’s presidential election.

Following his decision, many Nigerians have been praising the president for saving the entire nation from disaster.

However, Ezekwesili says if only Nigerians knew the extent of damage President Jonathan has done to Nigeria, they won’t hero worship him.

She took to her Twitter page on Thursday, to air her views on the recently held presidential election.

She tweeted: “When a review of President Jonathan’s administration is done, we’ll realize how much damage sycophancy did to governance. Example? Chibok Girls,” she wrote.

A leader must be without an inordinate desire to be serenaded with ‘good news’ or their team will never let them know the true state of affairs.

“An environment that rewards sycophancy encourages team to withhold accurate ‘bad’ news (problems) from the leader while serving up ‘good news’.

” When a leader makes hero worshiping costly to those who engage in it, he/she deprives the ‘sellers’ market to set the ‘Mediocrity Benchmark.’

“A critical success factor in governance is for the leader to both in word and deed convey a culture that abhors sycophancy. No hero worshiping.”

Madam, I respect you for your views, but your behavior towards Jonathan seems to suggest that your heart is a reflection of your face. Can't you for one minute leave Jonathan alone?.

I' m inclined to agree with her ......

A kleptocrat cannot be a hero ; Nigeria should  stop worshiping  Mediocrity ...

The real Hero is the. Man who nevr gave up his dream.......

GMB is the hero .....

Accepting defeat isn't a mark of herosim . Especially after the debacle in rivers and the SS/SE it's okay to comment GEJ but please don't obscure and rewrite history in the process , more importantly anyone who can receive praise must be ready to receive criticism .....

Madam you ve spoken well ....

That woman is a hater of peace and progress,I believe she is just jealous of GEJ.I wish to ask her if GEJ was the one who kidnapped or sent boko haram to kidnapped those girls.Maybe she should have also blamed GEJ for the collapsed building of SCOAN too,nonsense woman.Surely she is one of the destroyers,traitors and APC power striving vampires...Rubbish Lips Sealed Lips Sealed Lips Sealed Roll Eyes Shocked

You Guys should stop fooling urself. Jonathan dont have choice than to accept, The era of pple staying in power without the will of the people have gone, He knows the result if he decided to hold on to power. He is not hero. cos. what impact has he made in Nigeria before he luckily attain power by luck.?
He got there cos of the constitution which allow the vice to take over.
Ordinarily PDP can not make Jona a candidate if he has gone tru primaries in party level.. But being the man in power they bargain with him to stand there like figure to allow them to loot the country.
Jona is never a hero cos the havoc he cause is more than Chibo girls alone.
