Buhari not mediating between Boko Haram and government – CPC

The news is a ploy to tarnish Buhari’s image, CPC says.

 

Nov. 2 (PREMIUM TIMES) – The opposition Congress for progressive change party, CPC, has said the emerging media link between its national leader, Muhammed Buhari, and a planned parley between Boko Haram and the Nigerian government is aimed at tarnishing his image.

The party denied that the terrorist group appointed Buhari, to mediate between them and Federal Government in a planned peace process.

The Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Rotimi Fashakin, said this in a statement on Thursday.

Mr Fashakin told PREMIUM TIMES that Buhari has never been contacted by either Boko Haram or government to mediate any talks.

Mr. Fashakin said that the news is a “cheap propaganda” by the ruling party, People’s Democratic Party, PDP. to tarnish the “quintessential image” of its leader.

“We call on all Nigerians to reject this latest deceptive ploy by this PDP-led government and demand for more transparency in the governance of the Nation.

The CPC insisted that the ruling party is the mastermind of the insecurity ravaging the nation. The party insisted that there are three variants of Boko Haram with the government running at least one variant.

“From recollection of events of the last two years, there are three variants of the Boko-Haram: the original Boko-Haram that is at daggers drawn with the Nigerian authority for the extra-judicial killing of their leader; the criminal Boko-haram that is involved in all criminality for economic reasons and of course, the most lethal of all, the Political Boko-Haram-which this PDP-led Federal government represents,” the party said.

The party said Buhari has never been directly or remotely connected with any insurrection or insurgency against the Nigerian Nation and her people.

    This is all sort of nonsense, PDP are always looking for a way to hold our beloved future president buhari guilty, and not to contest in 2015…God will see us through. And buhari shall be the president of Nigeria. For Better Nigeria.

      Future president ke. To add to your ‘dream’ we will declare this country an Islamic republic too. Happy?

      • Why not? I believe Buharia to deliver more than these thieves we have now.

          This myth that Buhari will fight corruption is a will-o-the-wisp. This was a man who lied to the whole world that Abacha wasn’t an armed robber. That was after the Swiss government returned millions of his looted funds. You think this pathological liar can look any one in the face and and accuse them of corruption. Well, I am wrong. If the person is Igbo, why not? Thats why he kept Shagari on house arrest to breed babies, while Ekwueme was locked up in Kirikiri to die. You should be scared of this man.

    Lots of Niger Deltans and South East commentators have wrongly assumed that General bUhari is the sponsor of Boko Haramm.I think these people are suffering from tribalism and religion sentimental virus and urgently need to be treated by neuro-surgeons.

    The South-South and South East commentators in Nigerian Punch newspaper forum are the worst tribal/ethnic bigots as shown through their naivety and sickening minds.

    Anybody from the Northerners is condemned without evidence and now they assumed General Buhari is the sponsor of Boko Haram crisis and Yoruba people too are abuse including Chief Awolowo and the same goes for the South Easterners.Nigeria has serious psychological problem to deal with to survive as an entity.Tribal and religion sentiments are gradually destroying Nigeria and no unity and the nation keep going down the hill toward disintegration.

      Buhari ordered his supporters in Boko haram to lynch voters prior to the 2011 elections. They did. It resulted in the death of more than 1,000 9jas and 10 youth corpers. Buhari swore he will never approach the courts again to enable him retrieve his so called mandate. He did. He went to court to enable him cover up the killings he organized during the post election riot in the North. Buhari should be told to retire quietly because he will never win elections in Nigeria except through a family coup in the North. Every Nigerian regardless of zone knows Buhari is behind boko haram. He came out at the same time with boko haram to chase obj out in 2003. Until then we knew little or nothing about them-above all Buhari is an Islamist. He introduced the the taliban type of politic into 9ja when he was recruited by the Fulani North to sack Obj from aso rock in 2003. The only solution to our problem is for the 6 zones to be given their political autonomy. Buhari threw Yoruba governors from UPN controlled states, south south and south east into jail. Ajasin was freed by the court of all the corruption allegation Buhari brought against him-but he refused to let him go. Is that the type of person u want as your leader-a man who has no respect for the rule of law-an executioners? Haba malam canada

        ALL I HEAR IS INSULTS ON GEJ. WHAT KIND OF A PRESIDENT WILL ALLOW A MAN WIDELY KNOWN TO BE BEHIND BOKO HARAM TO ROAM THE STREETS FREE? ONLY A MORON! BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE A FOOL AS PRESIDENT HE BE AFRAID OF SMALL FRIES LIKE BUHARI EVEN WITH HIS SSS, ARMY, POLICE AND ALL.
