Jonathan's address to the 69th UN General Assembly

Again, one would have expected a more definitive and directed speech from the leader of the number one economy in Africa and the most populous black nation on earth.

When one considers how the UN has increasingly become the "fifth estate" (an organ of neo-colonialism), Jonathan should have asserted the non-negotiable independence and right to self-determination of the African continent and a renewed commitment to transparent and purposeful leadership.

Nigeria needs a strong and visionary leader that understands the importance of Nigeria to the African continent and the furthering of the agenda of meaningful development for the continent.

His speech (below) was not only lacking in specifics, but lacked conviction as well.
