"Most Politicians Have No Business In Politics" - President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday said over 50 per cent of politicians, are not supposed to be in politics. He said most of them opted to become politicians because they lacked any other thing they could lay their hands upon to do. Jonathan made the observation in a short message he delivered during the first Sunday service of the year, held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The service also featured a thanksgiving by the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission for the success of the 2013 pilgrimage to Israel, which the President participated in. Jonathan made the observation just as the Anglican Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Revd. Nicholas Okoh, urged him not to give up but continue to persevere until he leads the nation to the promised land. 

The President likened politics to professions, such as nursing and teaching, which should ordinarily not accommodate wicked people. However, he regretted that those under such categories had found their ways into the nation’s politics. He said, “Politics is just like some kinds of trade. More than 50 per cent of us, who are into politics, are not supposed to be politicians. 

“For example, in the professions of nursing and teaching, people with wicked hearts and unforgiving spirits are not the kind of people who should be nurses or teachers, but we find them there.
