Dec 9, 2013 – ASUU Strike: “President Jonathan Is Nigeria’s Mandela” – Doyin Okupe Tells AIT

Doyin Okupe, a political appointee in President Jonathan’s administration has come open to praise him during an interview he granted on African Independent Television few days ago.

On Friday December 6, 2013, hear what Doyin Okupe said about President Jonathan’s commitment to the ongoing ASUU strike.

“Nelson Mandela was a great leader, he lived his life for the people of South Africa. I check through the history of Nigeria, among our past and present leaders, the only one we can call our Mandela here in Nigeria is President Jonathan. There is no any President in Nigeria that has sacrificed 13 hours to discuss with ASUU.”

Did I hear him compare President Jonathan to Mandela?

Can someone sense the political game here.

How can he make such comparison when Nigerian students have been home-bound for the past 6 months.

So because the oga at the top spent 13 hours with ASUU officials, that automatically qualifies him as the Mandela of Nigeria…. Doyin Okupe should wake up from his slumber abeg.
