Dr.Goodluck Jonathan
God is not done with Dr. Jonathan Presidency as we can see, because the "Bible of our dear nation" [The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria} still gives him another chance to contest the presidential election that is coming next. That is very clear and it cannot be argued by any man who is not blind or stupid.
There are many who don't seem to understand what is happening in the Country, they don't know that nothing is happening by chance, because those who claim to have power themselves have not proved that they could or would be President or put themselves in any position except it pleased God to do so. That is why it is sad to note that some politically blind people continue to make noise saying Dr. Jonathan should not contest in 2015, such talks are nonsense and profoundly unreasonable and in fact grossly unbecoming of fellow Nigerians who aught to know the principle of righteousness that exalts nations, families and personalities.
No matter where you come from within the geographical space called Nigeria, you are a Nigerian and that is it. You are a brother or sister to the other Nigerian; therefore those who are trying to create division because of their selfish political interests should leave their prodigal ways and join hands with the positive national interest, to build a strong and united Nigeria that will guarantee peace and prosperity for all.
Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is a Nigerian citizen under the protection of "The Bible of Nigeria" {The Constitution}, which says that an elected President should go for re-election to seek a second tenure mandate, and that is what is supreme to all the side talks we have been hearing and seeing in the pages of newspapers. The surprise was that ill-fated letter of former President Obasanjo who wrote a mundane letter of eighteen pages to berate the president and called him all the bad names in his heart. But the fact is that Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is just what God Almighty says he is and should be in the future. In other words the destiny of Goodluck is not at all in the hands of Obasanjo or any human being with flesh and blood anywhere in the world, but in the HAND OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD WHO ANOINTED HIM PRESIDENT.
Those who think that their making noise or running around from party to party, deflecting and deflecting every day from one party to the other are just ignorant of what they are doing. The All Progressive Change APC as a party now wear the faces of political drop outs from other parties. That is unbelievably shameless on the path of those political divorcees from their husbands and are now flirts. What good thing will ever come out of such human beings who are unstable like water, thank God Nigeria had not made the mistake of sending any of those unstable PDP governors who prefer being called APC governors to represent Nigeria in any capacity, who may have dumped Nigeria's position to take citizenship in the country they may have been posted. Such people are dangerous, the cannot be trusted.
Nigeria is truly a great nation and that, we can see from the objective comments of majority of those who are national voices at moments of great challenges. That was played out in the controversies of Obasanjo's letter which was brutally criticized by many across the country, including the daughter Obasanjo and his former wife who so no reason Obasanjo could have written such letter in the first place. Nigeria had that spirit of coming together whenever there are major challenges against the peace and unity of the country, and that is the NATIONAL SPIRIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
No matter what had happened in the political environment with the defections, the intrigues, the name callings and the impeachment threats against Jonathan, and the moves to remove the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and all that, had changed nothing, PDP is still the best party in Nigeria and if Jonathan listens to the voice of God through the masses and go for a second tenure ticket he will win, and if he don't contest, any candidate that runs the race of the presidency in the platform of the PDP will will. Nigerians are becoming disenchanted with APC and will soon use the broom they have in their hands to sweep them out in states, its members are dotted.
Thanks to dramatic events that betrayed the APC of the sincerity of her members who ran to Chief Obasanjo's home to woo him to their side instead of going for peace between the former president and the incumbent. It was expected of the APC to have also visited the President, Dr. Jonathan to speak on the letter, but that they failed to do. Nigerians a not fools and can never be led by the nose, and looking at the faces of the spent horses claiming as being stallions, Nigerians, cannot afford to toy with the destiny of this great Country to miscreants and or political fortune seekers that are bent on taking power by all means for selfish purposes.
Dr. Jonathan is God's own chosen President for Nigeria, and the "Bible of Nigeria" {The Constitution} has it, that he [Dr. Goodluck Jonathan] has a right to go for a second tenure ticket, therefore anyone or group that go out of this arrangement is not just going against Jonathan, but God who made him president and the Constitution that gave him the right to contest a second tenure ticket.

NBA President Okey Wali and Gov. Dickson at a Transparency Briefing
The governor of Bayelsa State,Chief Henry Seriake Dickson Restoration administration is on the news again. This time around, the government has not only made news but also identified as the only government that is unmindful of the well being and prosperity of the governed. 
According to reports from some Ministries in the State, the state governor, Seriake Dickson did not release money to enable them perform their statutory functions of paying bills of individuals and organizations that rendered services to the government through the Ministries.,
Government officials who spoke to Golden Pen in Yenagoa stated that the governor had subjected the state to poverty which they described as unwarranted.
Our sources agreed that the governor abandoned the people of the state few days to the Xmas to enjoy the yuletide period outside Nigeria. Governor Dickson's action according to some Civil Servants whose salaries and wages did not come to hand when it was due into the Christmas described him as uncaring, selfish and insensitive to the plight of the people, thus accusing him of introducing hunger Xmas in the State
Some of the cabinet members of the Dickson government were said to have left office, during the Christmas week because of the emptiness of their treasuries. One of them spoke with Golden Pen saying,"I can't stay in my office there is no money to pay for services rendered to our Ministry, some of our staff are yet to receive their salaries, and the pressure is too much on me, and I cannot withstand such pressures. And it is difficult for me to open up to them that the governor traveled out of the state and country without releasing money", the Commissioner said.
Meanwhile Bayelsans are praying that God should touch the heart of the governor to consider the plight of the poor and to put food on their tables.
Dickson the Transparency governor as he is commonly referred has been in the business of bringing people from outside the state and country as special guests to listen to his transparency briefings after lodging them in Government House and expensive hotels.

The Founder and President of World Prosperity Organization, Chief Otonye Godman Evans-Tubonah has called on Nigerians to be united to achieve and sustain a prosperous society.
Speaking to newsmen in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital, Chief Evans Tubonah describes the "letter bomb" by former president Obasanjo at the door of the president and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and the Federal Government as a mere trial of the leadership of the nation.Christian leader knows that there is no leadership without trials and temptation, and those are the very steps of the ladder great people climb to the top and become heroes.
Some mundane intellectuals who don't understand the divine laws of peace, love and forgiveness have been making utterances to poison the heart of Mr. president that Obasanjo's letter tantamount "treasonable felony" but that Mr. president should discountenance all that and move ahead, Chief Evans Tubonah advised.
The Founder President of Prosperity Organization, noted the President was raised because of his down to earth humility and forgiveness of his offenders, and urged him not to make mistake to go for vengeance, but rather conquer or defeat the devil in the hearts of those who want to make a mountain out of the Obasanjo letter and put them to shame Tubonah said.
The best, president Jonathan should do is to triumph over the controversial, letter with faith in God that nothing bad will come out of it, the World Prosperity leader concluded.

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo
 Former president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo had given a hard knock on the incumbent president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan by writing him a strongly worded letter. Titled:- "A LETTER OF APPEAL TO PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN" dated 2nd December, 2013, Obasanjo raised some pertinent issues which he posited as matters of national interest.
General Obasanjo's attack on Dr. Jonathan was like a bombshell aimed at tearing down the presidency to pieces. Premium Times and Sahara Reporters provided enough space to publish the said letter and even the raw copy for Nigerians to comment on or condemn the presidency and by extension the Federal government. In view of the fact that Obasanjo was the godfather of Dr. Jonathan, it was more reasonable not to repeat the letter that had been read and read and read, by almost all Nigerians, Africans and the world.
What therefore Golden Pen would do is simply to say that the face-off between the former president and the incumbent president is not good enough for the peace and prosperity of the nation. President Obasanjo had been consistent with moves to put Nigeria on a lamp stand of gold for all nations of the world to see. He had for that purpose done so much for NIGERIA as the first Military Head of state that handed over power to civilian administration in 1979.
Chief Obasanjo who returned as an elected president in 1999, became the arrow head of the 4th Republic democracy, and was always at the forefront to see that the transition from democracy to democracy succeeded. T
His dream  came through as he handed over power to Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar'Adua and Dr Goodluck Jonathan as president and vice president respectively.
Some wrongly accuse Obasanjo,  that he deliberately made Yar'Adua having foreknowledge that he was going to end halfway, to make way for Jonathan's Presidency, but such reasoning and comments were unfounded, because some people that were not sick died before the former president. The rise of Dr, Jonathan to the presidency was a divine plan that played out with Obasanjo playing the role of the instrument for the unprecedented change with the first Ijaw, of Niger Delta and of the South/South emerged as president.
No matter what the truth must be told, whether it be a bitter truth of not it must be told. And that truth is that Chief Olusegun Aremu Kikiola Obasanjo is the political godfather of Goodluck Jonathan, who brought him as running mate, and today he is the president.   One truth is that there was no basis for Goodluck and Obasanjo to do things this way. The letter is very weighty, it is pertinent to suggest that President Obasanjo should not forget his avowed commitment to peace, security and prosperity of the nation.
Dr. Jonathan himself should not forget the god fatherly disposition of Obasanjo and relate with him in that light to explain some of the issues he raised to him so that there will be no second and third letters. Obasanjo and Jonathan should not fight.

  • In Nigeria, politicians are never stable, they are like the water that finds its own level. For the past 14 years Nigeria has been counted amongst nations under democratic rule. This is a plus for the country, as against military rule or military dictatorship which the global community frowns at. Thank God Nigeria is a fast growing democracy in her third Republic political experiment
General Abdulsalami Abubakar's name in history is already written in gold as the military Head of State who willfully handed over power to a civilian administration in 1999. General Abubakar set the pace for a promising democracy. From the 1999 elections the votes decided in favor of the Peoples Democratic Party {PDP} and Nigeria had always been in the hands of the PDP.
It was a point of interest to be with the ruling party, but to some honest leaders in the Niger Delta, The  political party one belongs to does not matter, provided the dividends of democracy are being realized. On this political journey of 14 years the people of Nigeria have been like a double headed serpent that insist on going different directions without minding that they belong to one body.
It has been so controversial for this nation called the giant of Africa to go on a political journey with a multiple party system that the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] failed to manage or co-ordinate, which gave a strong indication that Nigeria was moving into a turbulent sea of political uncertainties. Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who became the first Nigerian child to occupy the national throne as elected president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, ruled for 8 years, not because he was perfect but because as a nation which suffered from the hands of Military dictatorship, the citizens preferred democracy.
Nigerians though willing to co-operate with Obasanjo did not accept his attempt to a third term move, and forced him to go back to the political track of completing his second tenure and he left. The way was now open for a transition from democracy to democracy. Alhaji Shehu Musa Yar'Adua was favored as President,but did not even complete his first tenure leaving the seat to the Niger Delta born, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as President of the Country. 
Dr. Jonathan succeeded Yar'Adua from his vintage position of Vice President to Acting President, to a substantive President and an elected President in 2011. The journey has not been easy with the PDP as a party. The PDP which called itself the largest party in Africa, with the symbol of an umbrella they use as a representation of a family under same roof. 
But that was not the true situation in the PDP, it was rather a house where so many unbelievable things continue to happen in the family, one cannot give a blow by blow account of PDP crisis across the country, but 'the last straw that broke the camel's back' was the story of the breakaway 7 PDP governors who went away from a National Convention  to form what they called a nPDP which has now progressed to a controversial merger with the All Progressive Party [APC] that appear to be threatening the soft landing of democracy in the country, as the latter has vowed to clean power from the hands of the 14 year old PDP leadership.
Stories about the quick spread of the APC were recorded on daily bases in the media: print, electronic and the new media, always coming out with more stories of defection. Those were stories from far, but most baffling is the attitude of most Bayelsans who said they are waiting for the APC to come, so that they will defect.
Bayelsa like most of the states is a blue blood PDP state which has no strong political party as apposition, which the state wants to maintain; especially now that they have their own Ijaw son, Dr. Jonathan as President. 
From the look of things, the PDP in the country more so, the Bayelsa State PDP should wake up and work harder, and also be vigilant for the Judases who smile with their leaders and betray them, are very much ready to betray their leaders again to get cheap political appointments.
Some of those yearning for defection are said to be meeting secretly in Port Harcourt and Yenagoa while sending out representation to work out their defection plans.
