Goodluck Jonathan got it right again! Kayode Ogundamisi



Goodluck Jonathan got it right again! Last week I supported President Jonathan's declaration of State of Emergency and the blitz on the affected state. I am not of the opinion that the opposition got it right in opposing the Presidents move.

I am glad some ACN lawmakers agreed with my opinion and voted against the party in support of the state of emergency. Today GEJ made another wise move, he'sordered the immediate release of all WOMEN held by JTF for being associated with Boko Harram and also ordered the release of suspects held for months without trial.

The president got that right, no Nigerian should be held indefinitely without being charged to court. What Jonathan is proving in the last one week is that he can be a Commander in Chief and also listen to the voice of reason by respecting the rights of those unlawfully detained. It is also pleasing that we've not heard of a repeat of the Baga incident and that the military seems to be threading with care. If the current trend continues GEJ would have made a huge turn around on National Security at least in the short term. In the long term the duty to bring about permanent peace would have to include stakeholders from all sides. I do not have to overemphasise that I am not a fan of the President but I cant but help to say it loud that GEJ GOT IT RIGHT AGAIN!
