I cannot imagine a better column than that written by one Sunday Dare on Punch Newspaper of Wednesday 31st 2011, which exposed the incompetence of Dr. Ruben Abati, the media spokesperson for the president of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
An article titled “The Broadcast President Jonathan never made”
Just after the notorious Bombing of the UN building in Abuja, one expected an instant reaction that will speak out the opinion of Nigerians, A reaction that will stress the non involvement or support for terrorist acts. This will be devoid of the usual sentimental reactions
One expected that the scrawling scribe of a president should generate a comprehensive explication as done by Sunday Dare to show how proactive we are, but unfortunately, none could do a speech for the President who visited the scene much later, excusing his delay to suggest that he was avoiding the public attention on him just after the incident.
Our speech came too late.
