A bold decision

Right or wrong is a separate issue

A breaking news item on Yahoo News :

Nigeria's president has suspended his nation's football team from international competition for two years after a poor showing at the World Cup.
Special presidential adviser Ima Niboro told reporters the decision by Goodluck Jonathan will "enable Nigeria to reorganize its football."
He said: "This directive became necessary following Nigeria's poor performance in the ongoing World Cup."
There would be a lot of buzz in the football loving/promoting media and in FIFA too.  There would be arguments in favour of the decision and against it.  The reaction of Nigerian people is still unknown.
Nevertheless, I take it as a correct decision.  And perhaps we also need one of the two high-ups in Islamabad like Goodluck Jonathan who could take a bold decision, whether right or wrong.  The guy has demonstrated his ability of taking decisions unlike our president and prime minister who make a decision overtly and do not have the courage to defend it.
And then the decisions taken by our subservient rulers are either to satisfy their foreign masters or to fulfill their own desires and of their surrounding stooges or to drop bombs of increased tariffs of electricity, gas and petrol.

If a student, failing to achieve desired marks, is not promoted to the next class they why anyone else, be it Shahid Afridi, Ejaz Butt, any Chief Minister, Prime Minister or the President, should be allowed to enjoy his position after failing to achieve desired and committed results.
I second your decision Goodluck Jonathan!
