Goodluck Jonathan's London Jamboree.

Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and his handlers made a BIG DEAL of British Prime Minister. David Cameron’s “London Conference on Somalia”.
Leaving serious security challenges at home.

Jonathan left Nigeria with two Presidential Jets, his wife and over 47 handlers, arriving in London with fanfare, the Nigerian President did not play any significant role during the entire proceedings, that role was left for President of Djibouti Ismail Omar Guelleh who applauded “the unique character and timeliness of this conference on Somalia”.

President of Uganda Museveni who spoke about the importance of controlling the Somali mainland to prevent piracy and advised that international efforts should be focused on securing Somalia.

Kenyan President Kibaki who welcomed the United Nations resolution in support of (amisomsomalia) African Intervention Force on Somalia.

No word from President Goodluck Jonathan, aside his famous handshake with David Cameron. The Nigerian President appear to be on a Jamborree to an event he could have sent delegates or attended only if he had something meaningful to contribute.

As Goodluck Jonathan fête himself and his associates in London, Boko Harram, the irritating Nigerian terrorists group struck in Kano, killing police guards attached to Jonathan’s new inspector general of police Mohammed Dikko Abubakar and some civilians.

The terrorists group also killed two policemen in Minna Niger State. Jonathan promised to cut waste in government and foreign trips but it appears Mr President is not ready to take his own advice. Nigeria had over 50 hangers on in London. The entire Somalian delegate to the same conference was 5 short of 60.
