Veteran music producer and singer, Martins Okechukwu Joshua Kalu known popularly as J. Martins, believes Nigerians owe ex-President Goodluck Jonathan an apology over the present farce the nation has descended into.
In an Instagram post shared on Tuesday, the 44-year-old disclosed that the freedom of speech Nigerians once enjoyed when Jonathan was president is no longer available, even as corruption has worsened under the administration of Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd).
Martins also lamented that the rate of insecurity along with banditry and kidnapping had reached a scary height.
The musician then made a plea for Jonathan to forgive Nigerians, especially those who upbraided him when he was president.
His post reads;
“Jonathan Oh Jonathan The freedom of speech we all enjoyed during your stay in office as president of Nigeria is no longer available, yes we never valued it then sir.
“The corruption your government was accused of then have now graduated with a double PhD in this prestigious government and yet they’ve kept a blind eye thinking that they will all go free? even if they leave the government today? Nope never!
“There is no part of this country that’s not under attack, if not banditry, it’s kidnapping, or boko haram or killing of security officers, this things were never heard off before but now it is our everyday living experience.
“Oh Jonathan i know you were called all sorts of names, those who betrayed you some of them are dead while many of them have no shame, they’re still busy jumping from one political party to another, the few others cannot look at you in the face because they failed to learn from Judas who betrayed his master.
“Please I have a question for you and in as much i recognise that you are not a perfect person sir, you could have also had some mistakes you made in times past but sir, can you forgive all those who betrayed you? and bless this country from your heart? I know you would say you’re not a pastor but you’re a Father and fathers blessings go a long way in helping his children succeed sir, please and please sir, do this for us all,” he said.
