22 Things President Jonathan Said During Yesterday's Presidential Media Chat

Here the highlights of what President Jonathan said during yesterday's media chat 

  •     In 2011, I was already in my village when INEC announced elections had been moved by 2 weeks. I didn't know

  •     INEC did not consult me before postponing elections. I don't even want to be consulted by INEC-President Jonathan

  •     INEC is an independent body and if INEC conducts this election poorly, it's on my head

  •     People are not being fair to me over postponement of election, I do not decide the date for the elections

  •     Few people are doing things for me i think are not the best, there must be a nation before you do what you want to do

  •     I appointed Jega and if I think he's not good, I have the power by constitution to remove him

  •     I've not told anyone I want to remove Jega

  •     I don't see why we continue to doubt that elections will hold. Elections will hold!

  •     Election is like any tournament, FIFA says March, later say April or May. The winning team will still win. No big deal

  •     Let me reassure Nigerians that elections will be conducted in this country and a govt will be inaugurated on May 29th.

  •     We found it difficult to contain BH because we didn't get the necessary equipment and our neighbours were not too committed.

  •     Nobody is saying Boko Haram must be wiped out completely before they conduct elections

  •     I had meetings with the President of Chad and he said before he can send troops the AU have to be involved

  •     Is it by going to carry flags and singing around the world that we'll bring our girls back? Why use your international links negatively?

  •     I cannot give a time frame that the Chibok girls will be rescued, I don't want to be quoted

  •     I am more hopeful now than before on the Chibok girls

  •     If you put a goat where yam is, it will eat it. If you put people where money is, they'll steal it

  •     The word corruption we have abused it and it's not making so much sense. I did not say stealing is not corruption

  •     A thief is a thief. Don't use the word corruption to cover stealing. Call the person a thief

  •     We must not destroy Nigeria because of elections

  •     I attend Muslim programmes like youth programmes

  •     Nobody will go to war. Nigeria will remain Nigeria
