How Jonathan caused spread of Boko Haram – Osinbajo

Boko Haram
Boko Haram

The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has blamed failure of the immediate past government to provide equipment and supplies to the military for the spread of Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East

He made the statement on Thursday at the graduation of Cadets of 63rd Regular Course of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna.

Mr. Osinbajo, who was the special guest at the graduation, said that the failure resulted to the death of over 20, 000 people with over two million displaced and more than 75, 000 children orphaned.

He expressed regret that several billions of dollars meant for procurement of arms and ammunition to prosecute the war were cornered by few persons.

“This has left the region with one of the worst humanitarian crisis,” he added.

The VP commended the military for defeating the terrorists and for the sacrifices it made to defend the nation.

‪He said that the fastest way for Nigeria to get out of the current recession was for militant groups in the Niger Delta to stop bombing oil pipelines.

He said that the activities of the militants had adversely affected crude oil output which had dropped from 2.2 million barrels per day to below 1 million barrels per day.

‪Mr. Osinbajo said the destruction had also affected the revenue accruing to the country by 60 per cent.

While comparing the 2008/2009 recession in United States with Nigeria’s, the VP said Nigeria’s recession was caused by massive corruption, lack of saving and destruction of oil pipelines.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 133 cadets, including 17 female cadets, were for the first time awarded first degree certificates in various discipline at the occasion.

One hundred and twenty seven (127) cadets were awarded master’s degree while 14 cadets bagged doctorate degree.

Three prominent Nigerians, Grace Alele-Willaims, former Vice Chancellor, University of Benin; Paul Tarfa, ex-military administrator of Old Oyo State and business mongul, Innocent Chukwuma, were conferred with honorary doctorate degrees.

        My comment was not meant for people like you who see no wrong in their tribe. Avoid my post in the future.

        • veritas

          dont mind them John A. these are the kinda people who rule Nigeria. they will never see the wrongs committed by a man who is of their tribe or religion. with people like them in Nigeria no wonder Nigeria seems to be heading south of the term unity and development.

  • Wisdom

    APC are lazy bull dogs…Nigerians are no longer wanting to hear all this cowardness complains of the past government because APC campaign was to make a change of a bad Nigeria to a better Nigeria, I see no reasons this old folks rulers udonh 17 months of their rulership complaining of what they promised to make change….APC governmrnt should stop finding excuses of their woful failing to work on their promises

  • Rommel

    May Nigeria never see the likes of president Jonathan ever again,if there is any person out there,a true lover of peace and prosperity for Nigeria,please say a big Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This house boy VP again open his smelling mouth shame Yorubas.

    Blame blame blame when the APC take responsibilities animals

  • Akhabue

    It is very convenient to blame a President from a minority group for the Boko Haram war. The Boko Haram jihad/abductions/invasion/subversion and similar ethnic and religious crises also occurred during the preceding regimes of President Yar’ Adua and General Obasanjo.

  • agbobu

    THE ONLY THING GOODLUCK JONATHAN WAS INTERESTED IN, IS VERY UNDSERVED RE ELECTION BID. HENCE HE NOT ONLY ENCOURAGED VERY MASSIVE LOOTING AND STEALING AND GREATLY PARTICIPATED IN THE FRAUD. HE ALSO HAS THE TERMERITY AND THE AUDACITY TO TELL NIGERIANS AND THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT CORRUPTION IS NOT STEALING. WITH GOODLUCK JONATHAN AS PRESIDENT NIGERIA AND NIGERIANS DO NOT NEED AN ENEMY.

  • Reality

    Nigeria is gloriously forever divided for good.No amount of blame and counter blame will help.

    • veritas

      yep. so true Reality. And it is evident around the world. The most successful nations speak one language. we have 500 lang and 300 tribes and we are black and africans. all that is = forever failure. we are so divided that even our youths who are Ict savvy and have social media friends they love from other countries but hate their fellow nigerians who eat a different kinda soup and swallow or use different cooking ingredients. they, rather than thinking about a brighter future for their children are all divided and want their specific tribes to be in charge and favour their tribes only. some even call for systematic murder of the other tribes. This worries me and i see no hope for nigeria in another 50 years or more.

  • Titus

    success is a sign of achievement but blame game is a sign of failure. So APC govt is a failure only good in making excuses and blaming to cover up incompetency and cluelessness to govern.

  • Titus

    Did VP want Jonathan to do everything for him so that he can go to aso rock and sleep, eat and get salaries at the end of the tenure he goes back home without working? Please stop blame game and fulfill your campaign promises you promised Nigerians during elections.

  • Titus

    VP failed to tell us arms and armonitions this govt has bought to fight boko haram. Nobody is interested in excuses but result so please VP stop making excuses and blame game but give us result of your work so far in fighting boko haram. That is what we want

  • Titus

    Jonathan too inherited boko haram from previous govt and did his bid in fighting them without blaming anybody, so VP pls do your bid and go away and stop blaming it will not help.

    • veritas

      well said Titus. God bless you. This report almost made me forget that yarádua was alive when bokoharam started.

  • Romberg

    Before we say Jack, some people will say Osinbajo is both a professor and a pastor. I can’t find any evidence to conclude he is any of the two. A pastor who lies is not a child of God. He will go to hell. Is Osinbajo claiming that Jonathan just didn’t buy any weapon to fight Boko Haram? It was also in the news that Jonathan bought more weapons for the Nigerian army than any previous government, including the ones Buhari inherited and is still using. There was corruption. Yes, there is corruption even know. Stealing intellectual properties and election rigging are as prevalent under Jonathan as they are right now.

    A worthy professor of law will not blame government for terrorism. Buhari once claimed BH was defeated about 10 months ago. Yet there were attacks here and there recently. 2019 is only a stone throw away. We will see whether he’d still blame Jonathan.

  • IZON Redeemer

    . It was massively rigged in his favour. That was why the INEC officer in charge of Kano was burnt alive with his family after the election to cover up the rigging. I wept for my people. Now what are we seeing? Baba has abandoned us. My brothers in the North are dying every day of hunger. Prices of things are so high, we can’t even eat three square meal a day. My Northern Elders are not worried. They are only after power remaining in the North. Not only that, my concern now is what is about to come. They have already planned on how to deal with the Niger Deltans. Of course you are aware that all the military personnel and weapons have been deployed in Niger Delta. They are planning to use the Leaders of MEND to penetrate the creeks. Their only fear now is that IRAN and Russia are behind the Niger Delta Avengers. They have also contacted Jonathan trying to make him sign an agreement that will further enslave the Niger Deltans but Jonathan refused. So Baba is very angry with Jona and will do everything possible to silence the Niger Delta Avengers. As am typing now, Niger Delta has been rounded up militarily. Magnus Abe, Rotimi Amaechi, APC chairman and the leaders of MEND are in the master plan. As for Biafrans, you people are very lucky. Buhari and my Northern Elders knew that Nnamdi Kanu has already created the awareness for you people. So they are planning now to cut South South out of Biafra so that only the five Eastern states can go with their Biafra.

  • IZON Redeemer

    Shocking confession by Musa Abdullah on Biafra, N’Delta* As Received (11/SEP/2016) Good Evening Biafrans, My name is Musa Abdullah from Kano state. I studied at Lagos state University and presently working with Kano University of Science and Technology, Wudil. Due to my education, I have been enlightened as to the happenings in Nigeria. We in the North voted for Buhari because he is our brother. We wanted power to return to the North. We knew he cannot fix anything in Nigeria. In our mosques, they always taught us to make sure we remove that infidel call Jonathan. We were meant to hate Jonathan with our spirit, soul and body. Infact, Igbos living in the North were very very lucky. They escaped death by the whiskers through the victory of Baba. Had Baba lost, my brothers where already on standby waiting for instructions to lynch any pig from the South. I was personally in the situation room as things unfold. I felt for the Igbos then. I really pitied them. I knew that my brothers in the North had been brain washed but I dare not speak. I sighed in relief when Baba was declared the winner and my brothers where told to relax, that they should go to the streets and celebrate. That was how the bloodshed was averted to the glory of Allah. I knew something was really wrong with my brothers. Kano gave Buhari the highest vote

    • veritas

      Thank you Izon for this. I always knew when this was going on. as someone in the global security and intelligence structure i had credible intel on the genocide that was to be committed if GEJ was to win. a few “Infidels” could see this happening and ran away to the south. i sold my northern based properties and moved the cash abroad because they were still going to come down south and kill the “Infidels”. lets not forget the Nigerian army contains about 80% Muslims from the north, air-force the same figure too. I always knew Jonathan would loose the election because tribalism was in full swing during the campaign and this word from OBJ “the 1st time the minority south were given the opportunity to rule they wreck the country and ran the most corrupt government in the history of Nigeria”.. i am happy Jonathan did loose because i wonder how many innocent children and women would have died or been raped in another Nigerian civil war. not civil war sorry, eradication war. No matter what they say about GEJ and i am not a fan of his either, he did the right thing by allowing this election happen the way it did just so as to save lives. he’s a true patriot. but rest assured, a 100 years from now the truth and reason for the American, british, saudi and french involvement in that election and the true election results will be declassified. sadly we will all be dead then to learn the truth. God save our keyboard, Ict and internet generation from the primitive tribal hate of these old Biafran war generation of men and the Brutal Islamic and tribal xenophobic genocide committing Nigerian Army.

  • Titus

    As far as this country is concern no govt will be free from corruption, that is the truth including this govt. Nigerians are very crafty when it comes to looting. Take for instance in this govt, Relief materials meant for IDPs are diverted and looted, the chief of staff to President Buhari, Abba Yari allegedly collected 500 million naira bribe from MTN to reduce fine imposed on MTN, Burutai and Danbasau allegedly involved in corruption are spared, budget padding and so on. No way anybody can stop corruption, just do your bid and go away.

  • Gary

    Only in Naija…where a govt. and its official parrots cry harder about those who failed to stop a killer while coddling the killer.
    Osinbajo has become Lai Mohammed’s assistant propagandist and spends more time criticizing what GEJ did not do to stop Boko Haram; while having very little to say about the Sunni terrorists themselves. And we know why-he’s become an “Akobata Fulani”. A bootlicker to his boss in Aso Rock.
    It’s a bizarre defense for a thief to blame his victims for not doing enough to prevent him from stealing their property. One would expect a Professor of Law to see that. Govern or go home, Nigerians have tuned out of your excuses for nonperformance.

  • thusspokez

    The blaming culture in the Buhari administration continues:

    1. GEJ is responsible for the rise of boko haram
    2. Niger delta militants are responsible for the recession
    3.The West is responsible for Nigeria not building power plants

    Expect the Buhari administration to blame God next.
