President Jonathan – “Bombings in Nigeria will soon be history”

Speaking at the Walkerhill Hotels in Seoul Wednesday, President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria said that the current spate of bombings in Nigeria will soon be history and will hopefully be resolved by the middle of 2012.

ThisDay reports that according to him, his optimism is based on a series of arrests that have been made that the State can currently not publicize.

According to him:

 “a number of people have been arrested that we cannot advertise. There are certain critical people that if you get, you will be able to extract information from them. We have the freest media in the world and every little thing is blown out of proportion, even to the disadvantage of the media people themselves. When you are dealing with this kind of situation, you have to be mindful of how you handle issues of security. That is why we don’t have this kind of briefing but I can assure you that the security agents are working extremely hard”.

President Jonathan in addition reminded the audience that terrorism is not an experience unique to Nigeria.
“Some people are becoming so evil that they can kill people carelessly. Even quite a number of foreign leaders are praising us; that is the commendation we have been getting since Monday. Most countries that have this kind of experience have not moved as fast as we have moved. We have moved very, very fast,” Jonathan said.
“All over the world, there are security challenges. Human beings by nature want to do something that is evil, so government must be on its own toes and will continue to be on its toes. This is because foreign direct investments will be affected and our economy will be affected, so we are working very hard.”

What do you think of President Jonathan’s recent statements? Are they credible?
