The public presentation and launch of a book at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, to promote President Goodluck Jonathan’s achievements in office, became a total shame, as prominent Nigerians shunned the event.
President Jonathan, himself who was expected at the launch of the resource book that contains what the author called “proper and effective assessment” of his administration stayed away without sending any representative just as serving governors, ministers, senators, House of Assembly members as well as other prominent Nigerians failed to show-up.
When the organisers stayed for several hours, without noticing the presence of the invitees, they left without hesitation.
The book entitled: “President Goodluck Jonathan: His Speeches and Heroic Deeds”, according to the author, Tana Ejenavwo, documented selected speeches of the president which he noted, were indeed reflective of his deep philosophical thoughts on issues of governance, progress and unity of Nigeria.
The book, according to the chairman of the book launch organizing committee, Ahmed Danjuma Abubakar, unveiled the methodological disposition of President Jonathan in handling national issues in what he called “uncommon civility, instead of belligerent approaches that brutalises our national psych.”
He said the book also ‘divulges the prudency in the management of resources and accountability in allocations for infrastructural projects, as well as issues on how to balance Nigeria’s internal social and political conditions.
