President Jonathan Should Never Be Called A Hero - Oby Ezekwesili

Jonathan is not a hero

I think this leader of the Bring Back Our Girls group and former minister of education, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, also deserves a heroine award, but she has refused to recognise President Goodluck Jonathan as a hero just for accepting defeat in the just concluded presidential election.

Recall that President Jonathan, before the INEC chairman could announce the final result of last Saturday's presidential election, had called General Buhari to congratulate him for winning the election.

Ezekwesili insist that there was nothing heroic about what President Jonathan did and at if only Nigerians knew the extent of damage President Jonathan has done to Nation, he won't be worship as a hero. See excerpt of her tweet below:
"When a review of President Jonathan's administration is done, we'll realize how much damage sycophancy did to governance. Example? Chibok Girls.
"A leader must be without an inordinate desire to be serenaded with 'good news' or their team will never let them know the true state of affairs.
" When a leader makes hero worshiping costly to those who engage in it, he/she deprives the 'sellers' market to set the 'Mediocrity Benchmark.
"A critical success factor in governance is for the leader to both in word and deed convey a culture that abhors sycophancy. No hero worshiping."
