“I’m Not Slow, I Think Properly Before I Do Things” – President Jonathan

Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has finally given an explanation for his perceived ‘slowness’, which has left a lot of the country’s citizens frustrated and angry.


Jonathan was speaking at a church service to mark the New Year celebration in Abuja, and equally vowed to improve on the speed with which he attends to issues.

“Sometimes, people say this government is slow,” he said. “Yes, by human thinking, we are slow, but I can say that we are not slow.

“Government must think things properly before it acts. When you don’t think through things properly, or when you rush, you will make mistakes.

“It is more difficult to correct errors. You can ask those who build houses. Government will not, because of the perception, begin to rush.”
