Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has blamed nepotism for where the country is today.

 

Jonathan stated this on Tuesday, April 6, at the Palace of the Emir of Bauchi during a one-day working visit to Bauchi State.

He said the problem with Nigeria’s leadership style is that it puts family, friends, and acquaintances over merit, ability, and capability to deliver.

 

He said for someone to be appointed to an office or given responsibility in Nigeria, they must know someone at the top. This, he said, has been drawing the country backward.

 

“In Nigeria, we have this tradition where some people feel that some ministries are big and juicy and must be given to a special person or that you have to know someone before you give him a responsibility role or put him somewhere. It is not like that with me, it is not my way of doing things,” Goodluck Jonathan said.
