Blame your husband for Chibok abductions – Borno elders tell Patience Jonathan

“If the First Lady leads protest to the governor of Borno, should the governor’s wife also lead protest to the Chairman of Chibok local government area as the one to be blamed?”

The Borno Elders Forum, an umbrella body for elders in the troubled northeast state, has criticized the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, for appearing to blame Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno State for the kidnapping of over 200 girls from Chibok secondary school.

At a meeting with the wives of state governors Saturday, Mrs. Jonathan had questioned the decision of the Borno State government to open the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok despite warnings about insecurity.

The students were in the school for their final certificate examinations conducted by the West African Examination Council, WAEC.

The head of WAEC’s national office in Nigeria, Charles Eguridu, who attended the meeting with the First Ladies Saturday, said the Borno State governor should be held responsible for the abductions. He said the governor ignored the council’s warnings that students be relocated to safer areas for the examinations, and gave a written assurance of security in the risk-prone community.

Mrs. Jonathan said the meeting agreed that she leads a protest to the Borno State governor’s office and other prominent officials if the girls were not found by Sunday.

The spokesperson of the Borno Elders Forum, Bulama Mali Gubio, said Mr. Shettima cannot be responsible for the security of Borno State since the state is currently under an emergency rule imposed by President Goodluck Jonathan.

“We have listened to the very disturbing remarks of our First Lady saying Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, should be held responsible as he is the Chief Security Officer of Borno State,” the group said. “It is very important we remind her that the emergency declared by her dear husband, Mr President is still in force and this means, the constitutional powers of the Governor as Chief Security Officer have been temporarily withdrawn by the President in accordance with section 305 of the constitution which the President relied upon.”

“The President is at the moment the chief security officer of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States while the governors have administrative powers as democratic structures in compliance with the provisions of the constitution. The President as chief security officer of Borno exercises his powers through his appointees, the Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff or any of the service chiefs and the Governor administers other aspects of Governance that fall under the concurrent legislative list of the constitution”, the group added.

The forum said described as “very ridiculous” Mrs. Jonathan’s plan to lead women to protest at the government house in Maiduguri when her husband is the still the commander-in-chief of armed forces with the provision of security directly vested on the Federal Government that he leads.

“If the First Lady of the Nation absolves the president of blames and leads protest to the governor of Borno, should the governor’s wife also lead protest to the Chairman of Chibok local government area as the one to be blamed?” the group asked.

“Should the wife of the chairman also lead protest to the principal of the school as the one to be blamed and possibly the principal wife or husband lead protest to the gateman at the school as the person to be blamed? This is funny indeed, the First Lady should grow to be the mother of the country and not to be seen doing things that can best be seen as un-presidential and capable of causing unnecessary confusion in the land at a time that the country desires for leadership from her husband”.

President Goodluck Jonathan met with the Borno State governor and other officials of the state government in Abuja on Saturday.

    This in a way looks like what she did in Rivers state that caused the governor to have problems with her husband.
    When did we start to have our First Ladies castigate elected governors in public? Someone should call this woman to order before she gets BH angry the more thereby endangering our girls.
    What does this woman take herself for? I don’t blame her.after all her husband threatened to withdraw soldiers from bornu state during his last media chat.

      if there is state of emergency then what is the governor still doing in that state-stealing security votes?-he has admitted that the president is now the chief security officer of the state–fine-then let him pack his entire boko haram kaya from the state and relocate to Sudan if he likes- until the situation is brought under control-the president should no longer listen to all these fake unpatriotic calls for him to exercise patience-in the matter-concerning the removal of the governors–why should some governors in Nigeria behave as if they are above the law–Clear as day light that the governor has said he is not the one in charge–yet wrote letters to WAEC without informing the man he claim is the chief security officer-of the federation-if that is not madness them tell me what it is-u cannot eat yr cake and have it-Jonathan fire the animals

          But the figure obtained by THE PUNCH on Sunday from the President/Founder of Old Time Revival Hour, Kaduna and immediate-past chairman of Northern States Christian and Elders Forum, Evangelist Mathew Owojaiye, puts the number of the abducted girls at 180.

    Should… “the Principal wife or husband lead a protest to the gateman at the school as the person to be blamed? This is funny indeed.” – Borno Elders
    Truly sad that the plight of the girls has now been reduced to finger-pointing as with every aspect of this Boko Haram saga from the beginning. It may sound funny but, it’s absurd that those responsible for concerted efforts to find & rescue the girls after three weeks are busy trading blames. My Suggestion: Accept outside “logistical” help from the UK, US and other willing Govts… Nigeria-wise: the military should encircle the entire forest area but instead of invading and risking mass loss of lives, wait out the insurgents until they run out of supplies… just like Nigerian Peace Keeping Forces did in Liberia against Samuel Doe’s thugs until they were subdued. Meanwhile, negotiators should be engaged to try and secure the safe release of the girls as this is now a “hostage situation” which needs patience and skilled approach. Either way, Lady Hippo should not be allowed to muddle-up things with her silly marches for partisan purposes… she can contribute “consolation” to the mothers by visiting/assuring and appraising them with her Dumbo’s efforts thus far… mehr nicht !!!

      The head of WAEC’s national office in Nigeria, Charles Eguridu, who attended the meeting with the First Ladies Saturday, said the Borno State governor should be held responsible for the abductions. So the question is was it the President of the FRN, that ignored the council’s warnings that students be relocated to safer areas for the examinations? Who issued the written assurance of providing security in the risk-prone community to WAEC? Perhaps the socalled Media agents is thinking Nigerians are fools abi?Did the socalled Governor alert the president over his concerns-b4 sending the said letter to WAEC? why did the governor not transmit the said query from WAEC to the office of the president-or the Commander of the JTF? since the president was now the chief security officer of the state- following the declaration of emergency rule in Borno state among others in the Fulani North? When the army called for the removal of the governors, APC was all over the place staging all kinds of protest-and using people to insult the president-now the governor foolishly admits that the president is the chief security officer of Borno state-That was no longer his worry–but was still collecting his security votes-even in an emergency situation–abi-?-Can u see how some liberated almajiris from Sudan who sneaked into Nigeria undetected via Darfur to Borno behave-and think in Nigeria’? What a shame-

      • Wähala

        Is the head of WAEC the head of security in Bornu? Dumbo is in charge and transmitted a “safe” message to Gov. Shettima who consequently told the students the SoE meant they were safe to sit for the exams… always follow the chain of command in sharing blame. president Obama and ex-UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown do not call Shettima for updates, neither do they call the head of WAEC… guess who they hold responsible? Pour yourself another Og. shot, Drunkard !!!

          You would recommend Shettimas removal or his resignation if you are not baised.

          What he did was to work behind the FG’s instruction by pushing WAEC to act based on a piwer he did not have and he knew. He eventually succeeded in having his infantary soldiers toabduct Christian Girls, freed the Muslims among them after ascertaing their religious status.

          The non- Muslims among these people should know what dangers they face if they ever mute the idea of bringing them near the presidency.

      What amazes me is, in what capacity is she undertaking this “investigation”. So all the statutory institutions saddled with the responsibility for such activities are not competent enough and Madam “Jesus Christ” is the one to run it?

      My take on this is simple. If democratic institutions that should work to entrench and promote the tenets of democracy, rule of law, human rights, justice and security are non-functional, then why are we wasting our time. Lets get the military boys to take over. There is no such thing as half-democracy. It is either we have it or we don’t. Right now, WE DON’T.

      • Naijagogoodagain

        You speak well!

  • chukzee

    The Borno elders are technically correct, which is why I prefer full state of emergency. If the governor has no more role why is waec heeding his advice on matters comcerning security? This bipolar state of emergency is just confusing everyone at the end of the day everyone will keep pointing fingers and no one will take responsibility

    • Joe

      The governor is morally wrong and bankrupt for telling Waec that he guaranteed security for the students. If the governor have no skeleton in his baba riga (gown), he should have referred waec to the military, since he claimed that he was not in charge of security.The governors of the three states under emergency have never hid their disrespect to the presidency and the Nigerian military. Jonathan should declare total emergency by removing the three governors and let soldiers take over, I can assure u of peace in the north east. Remove these guys and submit them for interrogation. They are mortal beings just like any other persons.

      That aspect of the information was not-never communicated to WAEC-The governor only tricked WAEC into accepting his conditions and assurance of making security arrangements for the students-it turned out to be a lie-a big lie-another 419-what WAEC got from the Governor was a letter of assurance that the state will provide security for the students during their WAEC exams-Instead arranged with boko haram to abduct the school girls-to enable APC score cheap political point with the incident-period–there are too many un-answered question in the whole mess-and the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the governor-if he says the president is now the chief security officer of the state–then let him get the hell out of the government house-in Borno state –What is he still doing in there-chopping awuf security votes from the revenue base of the SS abi?

    • Dan maikoko

      After the declaration of emergency, WEAC has no right to ask anyone for security clearance except the president or those in charge of security in the state.

      • chukzee

        That is exactly my point. No one understands this bipolar state of emergency. Okay waec made a mistake, why would a governor that knows he has no power over security reply them in writing assuring security of students? Let there be a full state of emergency let us know who is doing what!

        • Dan maikoko

          The gov does that because he does not have any regards for the president. And see what happened, the president is not even aware that his powers in a state of emergency zone has been usurped!

    Chibok has never been attacked in the past hence we can it was safe not until the kidnap of the girls. However if you look back to the series of attacks that has rocked Borno…most of these attacks took place in Maiduguri which is the state’s capital. Likewise the attack on military barracks and Nigerian Air force(which took the lives of some soldiers) took place in the same Maiduguri.

    With these facts…kindly tell me if Maiduguri itself is safe or even the barracks. I wouldn’t blame the governor for not moving the girls out of chibok…because from own knowledge chibok has always been a safe village compared all other cities in Borno. You should ask the Military what they are doing? do they have a strategy ?

    There is a price to pay when upstarts and fakes are allowed at the helms, this is one of those prices.A real commander in chief would have been holding meetings, visiting the scene of the crime, planning strategies, gathering info, sending more boots on the ground and analysing data available from a set up mechanism from the theater of war. Not our commander-in-cheap! You can bet without losing Patience’s mind is his mind. So i was not surprised when WAEC handed him this latest straw to hold on to.I bet GEJ’s most important regret so far is the cancellation of his campaign jamboree.

    I think the BEF don’t understand what they are saying
    It would be recollected that most of the protesters were blaming the President on this issue
    Others were demanding that the President put on his military uniform and enter Sambisa forest to rescue the girls
    Others still were asking where is the First Lady ; that she ought to be spearheading the search for the girls if she is a mother
    It is obvious the First Lady had no option but to defend herself and her husband
    That led to the revelation that WAEC warned against holding the exams in the school but the State Governor promised them adequate security
    Now that the girls have been abducted only shows that adequate security was not provided
    It was the State Governor that gave the undertaking ; not the Local Government Chairman nor the School Principal
    Who do you then blame if not the State Governor
    I think the Chibok community has a share in this blame
    It is said that Federal Colleges in those states were closed and still they could not assess the level of risk they were exposing the girls; more so that most of them are Christians – the usual targets of Boko Haram attacks
    That some people connived with Boko Haram to perpetrate this abominable crime may not be far from the truth
    Otherwise why did the insurgents not go to communities with muslim preponderance
    It is so unfortunate/sad

    Now i feel that its what you have that you give out, the president’s wife should be exonerated from her kitchen attitude; after all blame is the bane from not knowing what to do and from shifting blame to not doing what you ought to do. It is a sit down look approach which is common among the elites of the first lady’s.

    A system that accomplishes its stinks on blames cannot solve any problem; checking why such ever occur is however the first thing to solving a problem, a reflection on how it began and a reflection on how such can be stop from occurring elsewhere. The first lady is only trying to play politics with her likes, as she considers the frequency of protests from one parts of the country to the others, all against the slow response of the president. Will the protest to the gov. a fun fair or a political statement or a rally or will she be identify with the very people whose children are being sexually molested? Mrs GEJ answer me

    Bukar and cohorts..dont be absurdly naive betterstill stop being hypocritical faithfuls and face the reality of new Nigeria-no more second-class citizenship. The creme de la’creme of political northern extraction unequivocally threatened GEJ in the build up to 2015 that-“they will make the country ungovernable if he wins”-are insurgency, the resurgence of communal clashes mere coincidence? Or instrumentalities used to implement such threats? The minorities in the north are treated with utter disdain&highhandedness only seen as pawns. Now The middlebelt have chosen not to pitch tent with fulani/hausa north anymore-how do you intend to actualize the northern project come 2015-banking on tinubu that betrayed atiku, ribabu in 2007,2011 poll? What makes u think he may not replicate it again come 2015? that is that.

    History provides an unbiased platform for recontructing past events to present happenings-how the present came into being. Fighting, killing, irreligious pluralism and territorial conquest are ideologies well enshrined in a holy book shared by scores of million northerners and minor southerners. The shabaabs, maitatsine, mechanikic abdullahi, alzazawakis, dares salaam derived their inspiration from this holy books. Yet hypocrisy and shame has made us denied them and dissociated them from a pillar we actively or subtly share in. Those larvae of insurgency of d 90s, 80s and 90s that were not uprooted, later metamorphosed into BH plaguin us today.

    Your kinsmen brainwashed a large number of folks by relegating the paramountcy of education in self-development a strong weapen in other to keep you in perpetual darknes so that they could continue to manipulate you to whichever direction it pleases and best serve their self-serving interests. Having made a mess of 38yrs of central stewardship, having adequately self-served their pockets, all you are given as dividends of their unscrupulous rulership are pervasive polio, unprecedented abject poverty, deception of uncontrolled child birth to exploit the numeric edge to their personal political advancement, they over-hyped the almajiri system over anything of which in reality has no personal economic benefit other than breed army of political mercenaries for their election. Given these myriad of mischief well orchestrated by your kinsmen, it wont be out of place to say they are more heartless than the colonialists with few exception of ahmadu bello, aminu kano and the like. You should be should be throwing stones at them for largely contributing retrogressively to our national stagnancy rather than try to defend the undefendable. The wasted IBB’s 8yrs in power alone was enough to better the lots of his kindred(talakawa)-he could do and undo using his dictatorial powers but instead, he cared less and did little to nothing aside loading his accounts with stolen legal tender. are you perpetually hypnotized or spelled for life not to see that your leaders have colosally impoverished you region, when would you wake up to this consciousness that their ploy to pit you in battlefied to fight till death fellow Nigerians while their children are abroad is an attempt to evade your possible unleashing of your dragon on them and demand of accountability for all the years? when would you realize that they have attracted hatred&contempt upon you by fellow enlightened nigerians given their unguided remarks? it is unfortunate that you are all seen as intolerant, inhuman, selfish, sleepy self-acclaimed demi-gods. when would you realize that thes politRickians have “subtly” sown seeds of antipathy, intolerance, animosity in you? they have manouvred u using the medium of religion that they do not even practise-“The religion of every politician is his/her interest”. I.G.P,N.S.A, C.of Custom, defence minister, chief of defence are all Northerners yet when Nyako wrote a memo accusing Govt of genocide you danced to that recklessly played gallery-are all the soldiers christians, do u know that there are more christians in adamawa, southern borno than muslims?why do u allow wickedness to prevail over object. From 1999 till date, every year, between USD500-1Billon is recovered of Abacher stolen loots in foreign accs. USD5billon will send scores of million helpless children currently hawking groundnut&doya to school from primary to tertiary level, would send tens of million of beggars to schools. This is only one loot amongst too many to count. No wonder the southerners call you ABOKI figuratively meaning the GULLIBLE DUMMY…if i were you, i wl keep mute, bury head in shame and vote for an alleged Infidel who has helped restructured and reformed the dysfunctional religious institutions, given more infrastructures than any notherner to you come 2015. Now that you can see, Wouldnt you rather tell them that GEJ is also a human being not a perfect creature. Muslims are fighting muslims in syria, muslims are fighting muslims in iraq, aghanistan, egypt, algeria,tunisa, yemen, lebanon, djibouti, C.A.R, libya, sudan-if there is grave confusion within same faithfuls, what more do expect between two dominant faithfuls!? Since patrick Yakowa died no bomb has exploded till date in kaduna-whyyyyyyyy? It is a pity. Brother rise above d innanities of ethno-religious sentiment. We are human before any other artificial attachment.
