If You Were Jonathan, Would You Attend Yar'adua's Burial Ceremony?

We all witnessed the drama and heard from Jonathan himself that he was not given access to the then sick President despite his office. If you were in his shoes, would you attend Yar'Adua's burial ceremony?

Hell naw. He has better things to do than to go and collect insults from some gworo eating Northerner people high on gutter fumes. Abeg the days of our people risking death and getting insulted all in the name of pleasing Northerner and Nigerians are over. Was Ojukwu and others there?

the security men are Northerner, while the crowd itself are also Northerner, the more reason why its not wise for OBJ and Jonathan to go, moreover its OBJ that the Northerner's are accusing now of being responsible for Yaradua's death, and if he had gone there they would have skin him alive, but couldn't Yaradua have refused? Or was the bait too much? Maybe it was long throat, he should have think of his health at first.

if for the sake of yar adua himself, every nigerian wld love to be there but for the sake of the uncontrollable Northerners in the north, it is not safe for the likes of jonathan.

if you followed the burial programme on tv, the commentator did mention that the security lost control of the crowd at a point.

i for once do not trust Northerner so going there could be at his own personal risk.

@poster .

Why not? remember he goes there as the president no more acting. Anybody wey do anyhow go see anyhow . Full state security.

Secondly i think it will be in Turai's best interest not to act funny, becuase she surely will need a lot of favours from Joe when their deals during UMYA era comes under the searchlight.

I call for objective response not sentiments. I am a Nigerian and prayed for the late president while he was alive. I lost a friend to kidney wahala too so can understand the pain involved. I want to know your candid opinion hence the post. As an acting President he was entitled to see Yar'Adua but denied access (not too good if you ask me)! The same family has the right too to deny him access now. The question is, would you wait to be invited by the family or attend despite all. I would if you ask me. What would you do?
