The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has said that Nigerians need no ‘marking scheme’ to assess the Goodluck Jonathan Administration or any administration for that matter and noted that the people know when a government has impacted positively on their lives.
In a statement issued in Ibadan yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also reminded President Jonathan that it was not the business of the opposition to spoon-feed his administration on how to govern, even though the party has, time and again, gone out of its way to proffer solutions to the myriad problems facing the nation, out of sheer patriotism.
‘’Needless to say that such suggestion from us and other well-meaning groups and individuals have been so arrogantly ignored by the administration,’’ it said.
ACN wondered why President Jonathan is suddenly irritated that Nigerians have not given his administration a pass mark, after about three years in the saddle and two years since he was elected.
‘’Mr. President, Nigerians need no marking scheme to know that the rate of unemployment went up, under your watch, to an unprecedented 23.9 percent by December 2011, according to figures given by the National Bureau of Statistics. Today, the figure must be hovering above the 50 percent mark!
