Also, it’s no coincidence that all of the players on this list are on successful squads.

Jonathan did not have a national constituency or following. He did not espouse any set of galvanizing agenda. He came from Baylesa, a riverine state which, in the estimation of some, is merely required to provide oil, but otherwise to keep quiet.
