GEJ on AIT this morning, speaks on Chibok girls, Interim govt, Jega, others

President Jonathan was a guest on AIT's current affairs programme, Kakaki this morning where he spoke on many issues including the Chibok girls, managing the insurgency over the years, purported plans to remove INEC Chairman Prof Attahiru Jega, the opposition, the stoning of his convoy in the North and how he wanted to come down from his vehicle and many other things. Read all that after the cut...Reacting to the stoning of his convoy during his campaign rally in some states in the North, president Jonathan said some politicians have brainwashed young people who sometimes do not know their left from their right in carrying out such actions. He said he wanted to come down from his car when he saw that some of the people who were stoning his convoy were of 14, 15 and 16 years old who obviously did not know what they were doing.
"Of course people are worried about the issues of crises following the elections, security and the conduct of politicians especially politicians who employ young people who sometimes don't even know their left from their right because if you look at some of the people and the way they behave, you know that they are not even aware of what they are doing. For example, when my convoy was been stoned in some cities , I realized that some of them were little children who weren't even up to voting age. Some of them are 14, 15, 16. I wanted to come out of the car because they are children so you can see that some people are trying to brainwash the children" he said
