May 9, 2014 – Hillary Clinton:”President Jonathan Embezzles Nigeria’s Oil Money & Promotes Corruption”

Ex-United States Secretary of State has lambasted Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan over corruption in Nigeria and reckless spending of Nigeria’s oil money

Hillary made this known while speaking in separate events in New York City.

Clinton said President Jonathan has squardered Nigeria’s oil resources and has indirectly aided corruption in the country.

Clinton, who also expressed her anger over the abducted schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, spoke with ABC-TV’s Robin Roberts on American national television, and also at a public function organised by the International Crisis Group.
Later, the former Senator and First Lady made other critical remarks concerning Nigeria at a philanthropy parley, as she was widely quoted by several American media outlets, including CNN.

Clinton stated the following position in the New York events she attended, challenging the credibility and quality of the country’s leadership under President Jonathan’s watch.

“The seizure of these young women by this radical, extremist group, Boko Haram, is abominable, it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism, and it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Nigeria,” Clinton told ABC-TV.

“The government of Nigeria has been, in my view, somewhat derelict in its responsibility toward protecting boys and girls, men and women in northern Nigeria over the last years,” she said.

“The Nigerian government must accept help – particularly intelligence, surveillance and recognizance help – their troops have to be the ones that (are) necessary, but they could do a better job if they accept the offers that are being made. Nigeria has made bad choices, not hard choices,” Clinton said, parroting the name of her forthcoming memoir.

“They have squandered their oil wealth; they have allowed corruption to fester, and now they are losing control of parts of their (own) territory because they would not make hard choices,” she went on to say.

“The Nigerian government has failed to confront the threat, or to address the underlying challenges. Most of all, the government of Nigeria needs to get serious about protecting all of its citizens and ensuring that every child has the right and opportunity to go to school,” she said in her address to the function organised by the International Crisis Group.

“Every asset and expertise should be brought to bear. Everyone needs to see this for what it is, it is a gross human rights abuse, but it is also part of a continuing struggle within Nigeria and within North Africa,” she added forcefully.

  1. Yes I believe dis administration is the most corrupt and violent in the history of Nigeria
    President Jonathan knows boko haram and he is the one behind all the kindappings in Bayelsa over Oil

  2. That was a wonderful speech , the president of Nigeria don’t cars about the people , all he cares about is enjoying the oil money with his family and friends It is very sad that a country so rich is so poor , the president and his wife are having a joy ride with there power . I pray America come to the aid of the Nigerian people.

    • Bezo, my good brother, your are absolutely right. President Badluck Ebele Jonathan is the best ever at looting our national treasury; he is the best ever at destroying Nigerian image abroad; he is the best ever that had increased the prices of petrol and kerosene by 75% just less than three month he was reelected in 2011. The effects of that oil subsidy scam by Badluck Jonathan and his criminal friends in politics are great hardship, high cost of transportation fee, increase in the prices of food products and great unemployment among ordinary Nigerians. Badluck Jonathan is the best ever at shattering our national security, and best ever at killing over 50,000 innocent Nigerian citizens because of his political ambitious, low mentality and gross I incompetence. He the best ever that married an illiterate first lady that had brought Nigeria great shame and dishonor because of her missteps, grammatical errors, and poor judgement. He – Badluck Jonathan will end up in 2015 has the worst president Nigeria ever had. My good friend bezo, I believed he is the best ever in terms of my comment and that from many right thinking great Nigerian people. Hillary Clinton, president Obama and the U.S government have facts and classified information about president Badluck and his corrupt practices in the last five years. And they are all wondering how great Nigerian people voted for the most corrupt, low IQ and most incompetent president ever in African history.Thanks.

  3. All what Mrs Clinton said in her speech about the insecurity of Nigerian citizens in the country, the Government’s failure to take hard and. Decisive steps toward curbing the insurgency in the country, I totally agreed with her.. But telling the world that President Jonathan embezzles oil money is not true. Jonathan isn’t corrupt..its people around him that embezzles money and all that.. He is honest and wants the best for our country…

  4. Where was Hillary Clinton? Why is she speaking out now? Nigeria name is corruption so don’t blame GEJ

  5. Watch yhur comment kid! Jonathan knows what? Its a free forum 2 express yhur thoughts doesn’t mean yhu do that in an awkward manner.. Corruption is every where.. Clinton complaining, US is more corrupted than any other nation in the world.. Many forces are against jonathan administration.. It has happened, no one is ever changing it but we can make it better 4 next generation.. #CorruptionIsEveryWhere.. GOD bless Nigeria

  6. Nigerians should leave President Joenathan alone, he is not a corrupt leader, he is a quite simple person who want to please every body and all tribs in Nigeria, had it been that he statred arresting all this old wicked past leaders, people will say he is like Idi Amin, but he was following things easy and respecting the human right laws.

    where i can blame him is not removing the governors of those states that he declears Emmangency and replacing them with Militray admistrators, the Emirs and the chief security offcers there for a while because they quite know what is wrong in those states,may be Boko harm and salutring of innocent people is their tradition, no body can tell us that some body at home dont know what is happeing in his house.

    The president is not from there and can not know what is happing or happened prevoisley,we Nigerians know where our proble comes from, but we are very afrid to say it, some leaders sometimes said that they will make his government ungovrnorable when they fail election, but no body took them serious, but now it is happeing all bleaming the president, PLEASE NIGERIAN LEAVE THE MAN ALONE, HE IS DOING HIS BEST.please American try to help us expose the people behind this atrocities

    • My only problem is that many comments here are written by Jonathan’s Sycophants. They are all over the web doing the job they got paid for by stolen oil money

  7. SORRY GEJ, IT,S VERY OBVIOUS TO THE WHOLE WORLD THAT YOU ARE CONFUSED.BESIDE CORRUPTION, YOU ARE ALSO A VERY WEAK PERSON. SORRY!
