May 25, 2014 – Chibok Girls: President Jonathan Disgraced & Booed Off Stage In Pretoria South Africa

President Goodluck Jonathan’s perceived mishandling of the case of the more than 200 school girls abducted by Boko Haram in Borno State got further knocks yesterday in South Africa.

Crowd at the inauguration of President Jacob Zuma for a second term in office registered their disapproval of government’s inability to rescue the girls one month after, with boos of “Bring back our girls” directed at President Jonathan as he stepped into the venue of the swearing in.

By his side was the First Lady, Patience.

And for a moment, Nigeria became the issue at the Union Buildings, Pretoria, where the late Nelson Mandela who became South Africa’s first black president, took the oath of office 20 years ago in a ceremony officially ending white minority rule.

President Jonathan was one of the more than 20 heads of state gathered for the event.

Aside the shouts of “Bring back our girls” a non-governmental organisation – The Concerned Young People of SA (Cypsa) – handed out pamphlets at yesterday’s ceremony calling for the release of the kidnapped schoolgirls.

The pamphlets were entitled Umphakathi Ukhathazekile (The society is concerned).

“Now Nigeria. Who’s next? “, read a message on the pamphlet.

“Where can we hide our girls from Boko [Haram]?” read another excerpt on the pamphlet.

President Jonathan was due to hold talks last night with other African leaders in Pretoria on the security situation in Nigeria.

  1. Hello my naijagists miss u guys
    pls Africans should learn to respect their elders
    forget abt d situation in Nigeria, dis man deserves a bit of respect
    Nigeria is the largest country in Africa so what do dey expect

    • dotun no vex me ooo, he his meant to be thinking of way out, not going to for inauguration that does not concern him… Nigeria as never been this worst under a civilian government

  2. This is an indication of our insensitive and unseriousness.People outside Nigeria were more concerned about what is happening in Nigeria.Shame to our clueless leaders.

  3. what do you mean? He is a politician. He is a representaive of Nigeria and he is meant to answer for his shortcomings as a president. All presidents face criticism from individuals within their country and outside of it. He should be prepared to explain what the Nigerian government is doing to return these girls back to their parents. Its obvious Nigeria was embarrassed into taking action, which resulted in the presence of outside countries to come to aid us. if GJ cannot face this then he should kindly resign and let us find someone else to take his place.

  4. Ky sharrap ur stinking mouth, just bcos non of ur family member’s was among the girls tha was kiddnapped. How can our country be in fire. And mr president is not bothered about it?

  5. @Dotun KY, I don’t know who you are, but you certainly sound like a propagandist or perhaps a government agent. I mean what has respect got to do with the question being asked the president…governance is about accountability not like the dictatorial secrecy that is prevalent in the decorum of Nigerian governance.

    So please Dotun, if you do not have any positive comment to add here …I suggest you keep quite…that way you will be making more sense being quite than that poisonous comment of yours.
