Goodluck Jonathan gives reason for Nigeria’s current state

Former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has saidNigeria is where it is today because of nepotism as Nigeria’s leadership style puts family, friends, and acquaintances over merit, ability and capability to deliver.

He said this while speaking on Tuesday, April 6, at the Palace of the Emir of Bauchi during a one-day working visit to Bauchi state.

“In Nigeria, we have this tradition where some people feel that some ministries are big and juicy and must be given to a special person or that you have to know someone before you give him a responsibility role or put him somewhere. It is not like that with me, it is not my way of doing things,” Goodluck Jonathan said.
