    I just like him without reasons.

      1. Jonathan had tried his best,let’s try another person that will touch the live of Southerners even in Vice capacity, a grassroot Politician,Someone like Senator Godswill Akpabio.

  2. Thats the African problem. For no reason, you’ll handover your destiny and that of the generation to come to someone? Even a goat or dog won’t do that.

  3. GEJ, do not be deceived to contest 2023 presidential election by APC or PDP, the same people planned for defeat in that election are very much around. Respect your self and remain an elder Statesman and World Peace Ambassador.

  4. GEJ should not think of coming back. This country is beyond repair. Thanks to the people that brought PMB. GEJ should not spoil his name, Just rest sir.

  5. Dr. Good luck should buried his ideal if at all he have interest. More than 85% are not interesting in such an expired nation called Nigeria. There should be referadum before 2023 if anyone can live till then with these kind of barbaric killing everyday by day. If he nurse abittion, he he may……..

  8. Chinedu, you are suffering from a condition called Stockholm syndrome. It is a type of disease that makes a slave love his master for maltreating him

  9. That is the problem of Nigeria, illiterate electorates like you who go to the polling booth to elect vagabonds

  10. With what we have seen and experienced so far, let GEJ please take over and restore the country economy back, this time, he will have the political will to deem the nation.The North in particular and the nation in general should apologize and beg him to rule us again.

  11. Jonathan is right and wise.
    Presidential race for him in particular is not something one should just rise up hop into.
    He would have held to power by all means in 2015 if he had wanted to be like other African presidents, but he felt, as I believe, to give peace a chance as he had been threatened by his successor for the same lack of peace if he were to remain on seat.
    The waters of insecurity and lack of peace that were turned on for his stepping down reason are yet to be still. He doesn’t need to be in a hurry to join the race when Boko Haram, bandits, herdsmen, etc are yet to leave the stage.
    I rest my case.

  12. Johnathan has change the economic impression of massis about Nigeria. If given chance I believe he will set Nigeria on a step to greener pastures.I have confidence in him.
