New ministers: I’ll score more goals, says Jonathan


…President swears in Nebo, Turaki


President Goodluck Jonathan said yesterday that like a coach of a national team, he is under pressure to score more goals at this critical time of his administration.

He disclosed this when he swore into office two ministers, Chinedu Osita Nebo (Enugu) and Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (Kebbi). He charged them to prove that he is a good coach by scoring more goals for his administration. The President, who was still basking in the euphoria of Nigeria’s victory over Cote d’Ivoire, watching them cruising into the semi-final at the ongoing African Cup of Nations on Sunday, stressing that Nigerians would judge his coaching abilities by the new vigour the two ministers bring into the federal cabinet. According to him, “we are admitting two new ministers into our fold. From the profile we have heard about them, they are eminently qualified to serve this country at all levels.

If it is political, they are eminently qualified to serve as councillors up to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by their antecedents. “But then, background qualification is one thing, but serving as a minister is another because the challenges are different. One thing I believe is that you will succeed, but to me, is a big challenge on me and you because if a coach of a football team sends his 11 players and decided to make changes getting close to half-time then he knows that there may be weaknesses in some areas and he is bringing people to strengthen the team to make sure they score goals.

“So, Nigerians are expecting that if I am bringing ministers in at this time, I must be bringing people that will strengthen the team and make sure I bring people that will score more goals than we are already scoring. And If Nigerians don’t realise that they will feel that I am not a good coach. If they realise that then they will know I am a good coach.

So it is quite challenging for me for bringing you in at that time and also to you because they will expect you to perform extremely well. “Just like when the coach introduces sometimes, 10 minutes to the end of the game and you are introduced to the field, they expect you to score the next goal.

So, you are welcome on board, you will be formally inaugurated again on Wednesday (tomorrow) when we will have the FEC meeting. You will get your letter from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), and I assign you to where we think you will serve this great country. Congratulations,” he said. Some of those in attendance include Deputy Senate President, Senate Majority Leader, Deputy Speaker, ministers and families of the new ministers.
