Sounds like President Jonathan did not enjoy being the leader of the nation. He has just compared his last 16 years in government to being in a cage.
While receiving Easter visitors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja yesterday he said
I have been in government for 16 years beginning from 1999. Not in government as a parliamentarian because if you are a Senator or House of Representatives member, you take care of yourself, you live in your own house. I was in a cage, being taken care of by government. From May 29, 1999 to date; 16 good years. I think it is enough and I am happy.
I have been saying for some time now that GEJ in his heart of hearts did not want to be president any more….
He also said that he considers himself one of the luckiest Nigerians,
For me as an individual, this Easter coincides with the time I am leaving(office) but I always say that I am one of the luckiest Nigerians. I have yet to see somebody luckier than me.
He then went on thank God and Nigerians
Please help me to thank God for that. I will continue to thank Nigerians for giving me that privilege. I became a deputy governor because Bayelsans voted for me and my governor then (Diepreye Alamieyeseigha). I became a Vice-President because Nigerians voted for (Umaru)Yar’Adua and myself.
Awww I wish him well, he definitely is over being the president of this country!
