Showing Some Testicular Fortitude, Goodluck Jonathan Promotes Himself To Field Marshal
Who would have guessed Goodluck Jonathan wanted to join Mobutu Sese Seko, Idi Amin and Jean-Bédel Bokassa as one of Black Africa’s handful of Field Marshals? Not I, and probably not you, but hey, dreams do come true, and I guess GEJ can finally celebrate this milestone.
It’s interesting to note that GEJ did what Johnson Aguyi-Ironsi, Gowon (Nigeria’s last and only war C-i-C), Murtala Muhammed , Obasanjo, Buhari, IBB and Abacha could not do, promote themselves to Field Marshal.
Oddly enough, Next to him is another dunce, the Minister of State for Defense, Olusola Obada, also decked out in military uniform, although her epaulets are not visible.
Congratulations to GEJ for finally showing some real testicular fortitude…
