March 17, 2014 – Humility Or Politics: Jonathan Knees Before Yaradua’s Mother

Y’all must have seen this picture of President Goodluck Jonathan kneeling before Hajiya Aya Dada, the mother of late Nigerian President Yaradua last week.

The photo was taken during a courtesy visit to the Octogenarian on Friday in Katsina by State House photographer.

Is this true humility in display or politics at work?

    Beneathe dis cloak of facile humility is d fiery fire of politics. It is dis same fire dat bore out d recent honour of late general Abacha by President Jonathan@dat centinary celebration.
    Our president is being smart, & dat is knowing d game.

    What a fake humility from a president who had failed Nigerian people in all areas. Kneeing before a wonderful mother who gave birth to one of Nigerian finest citizen-Former president Yaradua is nothing but politics. This is a clear indication that this do-nothing-president will run again for his third term in office come 2015. Kneeing before any pastor, mother, father, Obas, Obis or Emirs will not convince great Nigerian people to vote again for a president who had intentionally imposed great harshship on the masses. On his watch as the president of great but unfortunate Nigeria, more than 15,000 of our people have been killed by Boko Haram terrorists in the northern part of the country. The prices of food products have sky-rocked in our various markets. The cost of transportation is nothing to talk about and millions of Nigerians are living in abject poverty than ever before. This president can travel to various churches and palaces and knee before pastors, kings and many other, but he will loss the 2015 election in a landslide defeat to the opposition party. Nigerian people from all sections of the country are tired of Mr. Jonathan’s failures. We can never be deceive again by any form of fake humility like he did just before the last presidential election. My people please open your eyes and ears wide this time around.

    Hi Guys,Kneeling, Prostrating or standing will never change Mr Jonathan of his clueless. Why I appreciate giving respect to Elders,If he feels that is the best way to appreciate and to repay his master.he should have done that off camera. Mr Jonathan should bear in mind that He is our president, Nigeria is bigger than anybody.No president of any country will go to that extent in greetings.Lets stop this High service and stop behaving funny.
