Former Minister of the
Federal Capital Territory
Administration, FCTA, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has
described President Goodluck Jonathan’s 52nd

promises that cannot come to pass.
The erstwhile minister described the president’s
18 minutes live broadcast as false claims and
waste of time. El- Rufai further referred to the
speech as a claim of no visible evidence to
He said: “Is it at all possible to react to nothing?
The speech was 18 minutes of false claims of
accomplishments no one can see or feel, and
promises that no one believes will be fulfilled.
“That is the tragedy of our nation today. That is why a country which constitution does not
recognise any ‘state religion’ has resorted to a year of publicly-funded prayer project, instead of
the hard work of providing inclusive leadership, honesty and integrity by example.”
He advised Jonathan to wake up and tackle security, unemployment and other challenges facing
Nigeria as a nation, instead of giving ‘unnecessary’ credit to himself.
Also, speaking on the broadcast, Senator Domingo Obende, ACN, Edo North, said Nigerians need
action, not words.
He called on president Jonathan to wake up before the nation hits the rock.
