…As Jonathan Leaves Aso Rock

Image
Alas, May 29th beckons and time is fast running out for the first family to depart the inordinate luxury of the Villa. With fortune has come thorns, and even the most ardent of Jonathan detractors will agree that it has been a turbulent six years for the president.

The jury is still not out on the lasting legacy of the Goodluck Jonathan administration. Contrary to what is in public domain, his tenure have not all been doom and woes. However, where it is not turmoil, one struggle to find a name for it. As a man, Goodluck Jonathan’s tale could have only been conjured by the gods, or how do you explain the chronicle of his lucky ride in Nigerian politics. Even GEJ acknowledged that Nigeria has been kind to him. If anyone ever needed inspiration that he can raise to the pinnacle in his chosen vocation, the tales of Goodluck Jonathan should be your pastime.

Poem: His Presence, Our Sweet Obsession!

They say true happiness comes from wealth
They say fulfillment can be found in life’s fleeting riches
They say you can find love in nature’s material possessions
They say joy resides in the strangest of places
But men have gone and seen, yet they keep toiling
Like a troubadour traversing for a treasure he can’t fully explain
The souls of men scampers around, toiling in futility, groping in the dark

But, cheer up! We have the panacea. A cure that no one can contest
It is His presence!
