Outgoing President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, may have recorded a great feat by accepting defeat in the just concluded Presidential elections in the country, but some set of people might not out rightly be happy with the way he has ran his administration.

Why some would want to highlight a large number of things the President was slow about, some would chose to talk about the insurgency in the country and the kidnap Chibok girls.

But the Yobe State Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC) Alhaji Abubakar Bakabe, has recently noted that the North-east would never forgive President Goodluck Jonathan for funding the make-belief industry with same amount he gave the zone to revive its economy.

Revealing this to newsmen in Damaturu, Bakabe accused the President of allocating N2 billion to the area for reconstruction after giving N130 billion to Niger Delta and N2 billion to Nollywood, Nigeria's film industry.

“People of this area will not forgive President Jonathan for equating the whole zone with a film industry. We have been neglected,” he said.
