Fulani, Kanuri behind Boko Haram, Archbishop says in Jonathan’s presence

A senior Nigerian cleric has accused the Fulani and Kanuri ethnic nationalities of being behind the jihadist group, Boko Haram, which has killed more than 13,000 Nigerians in five years.

Speaking Sunday at a church service as part of activities to mark the Armed Forces Remembrance Day at the National Ecumenical Centre in Abuja, the prelate of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Samuel Uche, said Fulani and Kanuri have engineered the Boko Haram insurgency to seize power.

The comments came amid rising tension and fears over violence as Nigeria prepares for general elections about a month away.

In the last one week, there have been political clashes in Rivers, Plateau and Gombe States where party supporters have been attacked, a party office bombed and campaign buses torched.

Mr. Uche said soldiers prosecuting the war against Boko Haram informed him and other bishops that except for some collaborators from Chad, Libya and Somalia, 95 per cent of those waging the war against Nigeria were Fulani and Kanuri, Daily Trust newspaper reported.

The cleric made the remark at an event attended by President Goodluck Jonathan, the Senate President, David Mark, the military top brass and other important personalities. None of the senior government officials commented.

He said those behind the Boko Haram insurgency were doing so in other to put the government of Mr. Jonathan in bad light.

“Let me reveal to you this evening and at this important service at this juncture that some of our soldiers, because you know we Bishops have impact in the society, we relate with soldiers and all manner of people. And some of the people in warfront have confided in us that apart from some mercenaries from Chad, Libya as well as Somalia, 95 percent of those fighting our country are of Fulani and Kanuri origin.

“They’re aggrieved because they want power at all costs. They believe Nigeria belongs to them alone and that they’re born to rule while others follow. It is deceit,” he said.

President Jonathan and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have repeatedly accused the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, of being behind Boko Haram.

The archbishop also said those sabotaging the war against terrorism “are within the political elites, some are within the armed forces and other institutions.”

The cleric said beyond taking power, those sponsoring the insurgency also seek to Islamise Nigeria and create another caliphate different from the Sokoto Caliphate.

He said the mission will fail because it is impossible to Islamise Nigeria.

“These disgruntled country men and women and have made themselves enemies of Nigeria. These people sabotage every effort of government to bring peace in the north-east of Nigeria.

“Some shameless individuals and groups make such utterances and use grievous situations as a tool for politicking, blaming the government in power as doing nothing to solve the problem of insurgency. Who is deceiving who?

“I believe Nigerians are wiser and our people know that it’s sabotage that’s making it impossible for our Armed Forces to recover the Chibok girls,” he said.

APC leaders should be committed to prison

Archbishop Uche also called for the arrest and prosecution of the leaders of APC over their threats to form a parallel government.

The APC has threatened to form a parallel government if the presidential election slated for February 14 is rigged.

Mr. Uche said such calls amount to treason. “They should be in prison because they are committing treason,” he said.

He also asked the armed forces to beam their searchlight on the party’s presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

“Any presidential aspirant that misbehaves should be imprisoned for at least 12 years,” he said.

The cleric urged the military to persevere in their efforts to restore peace to the country.

“Let me appreciate the Armed Forces. Whenever you hear that people have been killed, there is this temptation to say they’re not doing anything. Yes, we know there are some black legs within the Armed Forces, no doubt about that. Some have been caught, some are being prosecuted,” he said.

    Typical myopic mind from….. Instead of them to attack the insurgents, they are busy blaming the innocent people killed and our useless clueless president listens and concurs with what they say instead of correcting the wrong. It’s a pity such information is coming from a whole cleric. They are all wicked, heartless and don’t care. All they care is GEJ winning so that they will get their share of private jet and loot.

    story, story, Story what is important is how you handle the criminals not who are the criminals. We all know somebody is behind the problem, even Jonathan has mentioned in several occasion that he know them, he is eating with them; but he question is what are you doing as a commander in chief. OK who bomb APC office in Rivers, Boko boys ? Or Jonathan boys ?

    • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

      Do you handle something or someone you don’t know? Knowing your enemy is primary. After that you begin to terminate them.

      • amazing2012

        Jonathan said he know them ! And Dr. Davies pointed at Ali Mad Shaitan, while all those arrested have confessed who is part of them. Sambisa forest is known to be their headquarters.So what else Jonathan want to know before he act ?

  • endingNaija

    It is clear that Ayo Oritsejafor’s CAN works strenuously as one of the main Campaign Office of President Goodluck Jonathan. So, With this report from another cleric works under Ayo Oritsejafor, CAN, can members of Goodluck Jonathan Campaign office operate the e-rats who criticize Rev Mbaka please raise up their hands, and come out and say something please? I just dey laaaafu! It is unfortunate that Cardinal Onaiyekan hurriedly commented on Rev Mbaka. But what will Cardinal Onaiyekan now say about Mr. Samuel Uche who obviously was recruited to do a job. Me? I go laaaafu taya. Whiel this is a serious matter concerning the fate of our country, the hurried comment of Cardinal Onaiyekan on Rev Mbaka was nothing but a hurried comment. I just dey laaaf even thought this is serious matter affecting the fate of our country. Mr. Samuel Uche I have a question for you: can you tell us your post in Ayo Oristejafor’s CAN Campaign Office for Goodluck Jonathan? It is a shame that these clerics-Ayo Oritsejafor and Samuel Uche- are selling the Christian Faith Cheaply.

    • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

        This was GEJ smothering the Jihadists with love, as a means of ending the bloodshed. Again, he was listening to the Northern elders, who had told him that all the Jihadist illiterated needed was LOVE. The fact that it did not work is history. The only language they understand is taku taku.

  • endingNaija

    Mr. Samuel Uche , colleague of Ayo Oritsejafor on CAN Goodluck Jonathan Campaign office, how much were you paid from the 21 billion naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fund?

    • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

      Days ago you were hailing Mbaka now this is here talk to me.

  • Ayelala

    This is why some of us want this country to be broken or at least,go back to regionalism. Boko haram launched their first attack in Yobe under Obasanjo. Obasanjo promptly dispatched the military and sent them scampering. They regrouped and continued causing problems under Yar adua. Yar adua smashed their camp in maiduguri. They scampered into the Sahara, regrouped and came back with a venom.
    Boko haram has always drawn it’s members from the north. Anybody who reads or is curious at all,will know this fact.
    The fact that it is based in the NE is enough to deduce that the members of the terrorist group are from there.
    Now, I will show you have to determine the intention of this man by comparing him to Mbaka.
    Whereas Mbaka was talking about the common man sufferings as it relates to the country, this man is talking power and how basing his arguments on the country’s faultlines.

  • ABDUL

    With people like this Bishop how can jonathan win the war againts insurgents, Instead to pray and profer solutions for the
    govt to succeed they are busy mis advising the president. myopic mind.

  • endingNaija

  • Dumbo

    Same old story from Aso Rock through another food-is-ready bishop. With this kind of bishops Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Jesus is a child’s play.

  • What is Archbishop Onaiyekan going to say about this archbishop of Methodist now? Some of these so called religious leaders have really become very funny. Why can’t these funny Bishops and Archbishops leave politics to the politicians. What evidence on earth does this archbishop have to support his claim? Does Christianity teach this archbishop to accuse people without producing evidence? This archishop has not helped his calling if he was ever called. Methodist members should please call him to order.

    • Warri Boy

      This is a Bishop. They get inspiration directly from angels above. But SOME Rev Fathers get inspiration from ghosts and sometimes evil spirits especially after they take a little wine for the sake of the stomach.

      • endingNaija

        No Samuel Uche (is he a Bshop? Oh my God!!!!) gets inspiration from the 21 billion naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fund

      • Who or what inspires them, according to you, depends on whether they speak for or against the president. They are inspired by angels if they praise the president, otherwise they are inspired by demons? Is this what you mean?

Trust OBJ he will grab the mike and put that Bishop were he belongs. How did we degenerate or get to this level is the question I keep asking!

    • Lanre

      Obasanjo is the reason we are where we are today. The other day I listened to Jonathan campaign. He made some sense. Jonathan is the match for the hopeless generation of rulers like Obasanjo who continue to ruin Nigeria. Constituting themselves into a public nuisance. 2,000 people were just killed in a town in Nigeria and you are blaming Jonathan. Did Jonathan introduce Sharia which is the vehicle these murderers are using to spread their terror? Until we organize a United Nations supervised referendum where Nigerians are made to decide if they want to live together, we are going no where. Meanwhile let Obasanjo continue entertaining us (like a clown) jumping from one marriage to another, opening his buccal cavity to foul the air with another round of hypocritical comments.

  • Bishop

    Oh Father Mbaka! Ur comments have made paid Bishops to start talking. Why didn’t they speak before now? Talkin or not,I believe God always hear our cry and will come to our rescue at the appointed time. Civilians and military are killed in this Nation like rats on a daily basis. Families cry daily to cemeteries in Nigeria

    ========================================================

    “They’re aggrieved because they want power at all costs. They believe Nigeria belongs to them alone and that they’re born to rule while others follow. It is deceit,….”

    “…those sabotaging the war against terrorism are within the political elites, some are within the armed forces and other institutions….” (Same as posited by Late Comrade Azazi)

    “…beyond taking power, those sponsoring the insurgency also seek to Islamise Nigeria and create another caliphate different from the Sokoto Caliphate….” (As Fani Kayode told us)

    “ These disgruntled country men and women …sabotage every effort of government to bring peace in the north-east of Nigeria… some shameless individuals and groups make such utterances and use grievous situations as a tool for politicking, blaming the government in power as doing nothing to solve the problem of insurgency. Who is deceiving who?”

    But the only chronic simpletons who understand not, are those like the paid serial commentator who claim to live in Germany and of course the media houses of deceit who tell us that the army are ill equipped but the hunters are. Honestly, I am very surprised that the Bishop did not mention the non combatant army of the Yorubas whose heart & Soul are with Boko haram.

    This president is really bent on setting this country ablaze because of power. He is the first president in history that has polarised our political arena with religious intolerance. Must his own private fate and worshipping habits be broadcasted every hour? Part of his problem is rubbing his fate on faces of other Nigerians of different beliefs. That pastor is accusing an honorable man, GMB of terrorism in the presence of Dumbo and he wonders why this country has never had it so bad all over. so even religion is now on the table for political gain.?Shameful old men. These useless oldmen should just go ahead and die already. They have failed our generation. If Dumbo and his clowns allow this country to disentigtrate, Otueke will not be enough to safe him and his cronies. Becareful Dumbo because you have no safety net or strong base to protect you. Not in Otuoke or the west. Enough said.

    • umolu

      Not true that Jonathan is the first president to polarize Nigeria along religious line. That ‘outstanding achievement’ goes to IBB. He dragged us into OIC, caused Zango Kataf, remember Zamani Lekwot? etc etc.This is aside from being the first to devalue our curreny, the naira! !!!, from which we have never recovered. Please try to tell the truth as it is. The rest of Nigeria suffers because of the north. Not one leader from the Hausa Fulani House has been able to grow the economy under his watch. They can’t differentiate between their private wallets and public treasury.They can’t even help Nigeria by educating some 15 million kids that roam the streets with plates begging. Those kids if educated could help raise their own future kids thereby contributing to national growth The so called north at the moment is a drag . People who can’t read and write; how do you expect them to wisely use their votes in self determination?

      • endingNaija

        Did BiChop Samuel Uche say all these in his sermon yesterday in the Church?

      • kday

        Yes he is! Am not a IBB fan. Actually I can’t stand him for what he did and got away with so far in Nigeria. However, IBB never dragged Nigerians with him into the mosque or kneel for any Imam while he held sway. Yes he got us into OIC but he still did his worshiping away from the public domain. Is OBJ not a christian? Didn’t he lead us for 8 years without heating up the polity. Dumbo is not the only leader in the world who is religious but he acts as if all Nigerians are Christians. Not wise at all. His Obama not a christian? If Dumbo was a muslim and he behaves this way, a lot of our Christian brothers and sisters would have issues with that.

  • Gideon Orkar

    Everybody knows that the Kanuris are the majority in BH. Is it a lie?

    • Bishop

      It’s so true my brother,but as Nigeria is,such a comment from a Bishop will only increase the religious intolerance especially as we are close to elections. You think the DSS an co are not working? If preachers don’t have a revelation,then they should stop interfering in politics. One day a moslem can be on that seat,what if they choose to payback?

    • abc

      Who are the most affected people by BH. If you still believe that Kanuris are desperate for power, pls tell me a Kanuris man that even aspire for the president of Nigeria since 1999. I think the only Kanuris that ever seeks election into the number one office are Waziri Ibrahim in 83 and Kingibe in 93, and they all didn’t succeed. Let me tell you one thing, most of the people affected by this terrorism in Yobe and Borno state are farming communities that cares little or not even affected by who ever if leading the country. The highest of their expectations from govt is no more than just a fartelizer then peace. I believe 95% of them never knew the states of origins of Yar’adua, Buhari, Atiku, Obasanjo or Jonathan, not to talk of killing them selves for them. This is the most Carlos insinuation by GEJ for letting people killed by terrorist and blaming the same peole for itdespite all their sufferings. This inhuman insinuation is invented by Azazi and passed to all Non intelligent christians, and i believe GEJ is still living by it. Which one is the sabortage?, I believe if today GEJ is looking for 100,000 youth in North east to help the Military and go into Sambisa to find the girls and finish BH, I believe it will not take a day to get that number. Then who is sabotaging who. This man just have to go FeBuhary 14

      • Gideon Orkar

        Did Maitesine want to be President before he started his uprising? Your reasoning leaves much to be desired.mit is a fact that Kanuris constitute the majority of BH members and anyone with a modicum of sense knows this. Who told their agitation is premised on wanting to become President?

        Majority of the town that have been uprooted are Christain enclaves. I hope you will be able to live with defeat in Feb. #FailBuari 14

            anyway you are still learning “abc”. get back for an informed discussion when you learn how to write simple sentences!

      • Ha

        Good talk. But the point of correction is that what Azazi said was more negative to the PDP. If you could recall several PDP bigwigs asked for his removal which was subsequently effected. When he made the statement the opposition had cheered. His murder (by PDP) was a great sorrow because he had started revealing the secret.

        • abc

          I believe Azazi was misconstrued on that statement. Political speech is one thing that needs to be well thought of before reaching the audience, which Azazi is not good on. ( the same problem Buhari is also having, but he is now improving). But if Azazi means it, then it shows that he don’t know what he is doing. BH is pure terrorism, but our politicians want to push it to their opponent to their advantage. PDP, APC or any party has nothing to do with BH. bcos I believe if BH could get all Nigerian politicians in one hall, they will be very happy to kill( bomb) them all. not minding their party, religion or region. My serious question that all Nigerians needs to ask is; do DSS got no any dossier of BH activities and agenda from 2002 to date. Why is the president left for every noise maker to suggest things to him aboutBH. If DSS got no such dossier then, they are no more of any usefullness toNigeria. And if the dossier exist but the president decide to go for the gossips then the man has no business being the CinC.

    • endingNaija

      Goodluck Jonathan has just told us through his BiChop!

    • Ha

      I can believe they are. But it is not for Jonathan. Very similar event occurred in the 1980s by Maitatsine from the North East whom Buhari crushed. It was also said that in 1800s another incident similar to this happened in the same area. The major problem of that area is that it boardered three countries, and is a free entry and exit. Did you read how Buhari chased Chadian rebels to Ndjemena when he was the governor of the region?

      • Gideon Orkar

        You are comparing apples and oranges here.

        1. The scale or some of the conflict is much wider. maitesine was highly localised compared to Bh

        2. The Northern leadership were united in their fight against Maitesine and no accusation of genocide

        3. The Maitesine weaponry was crude and very basic, bows and arrows, matchetes, a few guns. BH are heavily armed and have large numbers.

        And by the way it was Kure that led to onslaught against Matesine in Kano and not Buhari.

  • _Prudly Niger Deltan

    BREAK UP NIGERIA BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE

    Festus Odimegwu spoke truth about the fake population figures of the North. He was forced to resign.
    General Azazi spoke of those politicians from the North who are behind boko haram islamist terrorists. He died mysteriously in a crash obviously arranged with the Fulani pilot who of course would have been willing to die for the Jihadist course.

    This is why this Bishop Samuel Uche & Fani Kayode must never enter a bicycle, car, plane, Chopper driven by a Hausa Fulani or Hausa Kanuri. Else, you already know what will happen.

It is just 100yrs old and there are still Nigerians alive who were not born as Nigerians and they may not die as Nigerians. This is my prayer.

Well there is no single Fulani or Kanuri christian, these two tribes are 100% muslim and all of the violence is inflicted on them so the pastor can simply stay where he is most secured and protected and continue to preach the “gospel” to his agents in the army and the president who tolerate such utterances without condemning it in public, until February 14, you will be voted out, this Country will be headed by a Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria will be safe and secured again, GEJ is simply an incompetent leader, this man is clueless about leadership.

    We love travelling to Dubai as Nigerians and we talk of how nice such place is. We even take weddings there now esp the popular Tuface and Annie’s. Now my question,is that NOT an ISLAMIC state? As a bible believing christian I will tel you that if Nigeria can be peaceful and develop like Dubai and I can freely worship,and Buhari is the Sheikkh,Iman,Khalifa that wil take us there,am ready. I feel much pain with GEJ as a christian and over 2000 churches have closed down and we hardly have weekly activities now. Some Sundays we have to remain home if there is red alert. In maid all public holidays now means no vehicular movt. Saddest of all that today is NO Solution BUT blames.

  • True Nigerian

    Hahahahahahahaha! Well, the only northerner who is publicly known to have sponsored boko haram is known as Mr President’s ally and still has the confidence of Jonathan to the extent that Jonathan even tweeted a photograph of himself in the cosy company of the murderer.

    But a Bishop is here pretending to love Jonathan more than Jonathan can love himself.

    Jonathan should enjoy this moment while it lasts. Each time Jonathan’s divisive politics brings him momentary gains, he usually forgets that it is divisive along religious lines. But when he hears that all northerners are in full support of Buhari, then he starts running around with his pants falling from his waist in frustration.

    When the votes are counted on 14th and 15th FeBUHARI, Jonathan will see that the stoopid use of religion as a political weapon is actually a two-edged sword that is capable of cutting the holder. He has already lost most of the votes of the South-West (both the Christians and the Muslims). Yet, he is busy alienating all Muslims, Fulanis and Kanuris from his candidacy by relying on thoughtless mouths like this bishop’s and by looking the other way whilst someone is making some baseless sweeping allegations that have absolutely no proof to substantiate them.

    Jonathan and his thoughtless goons should get ready. Kanuri and Fulani tribes have many Christians, and you have just lost their votes by labelling all of them terrorists. It’s a shame you don’t know that it is always illogical to assume that a tribe numbering in millions are all exactly of the same block in their opinions and convictions. Even among the soldiers that are being killed by Boko haram today, you will find that many of them are Kanuris and Fulanis who are sacrificing their lives for Nigeria.

    Shame on you, Bishop Uche. As an Igbo man, I am ashamed of you. Our people are not known for this measure of thoughtlessness. Or maybe you think that there are not Kanuris and Fulanis who are still supporting Jonathan. There are still Yoruba’s supporting Jonathan. Yet, no Yoruba bishop or Ifa priest has shown this measure of idyotic ethno-religious support on his behalf. Jonathan is the commander-in-chief of the Nigerian armed forces. And, in the past, he has used those forces to deal ruthlessly with innocent opposition politicians in order to give himself advantage during elections in Osun and Ekiti. So If he really considers rule of law a priority and genuinely believes that he has identified some sponsors of terrorism among the opposition, do you, Bishop Uche, believe that the Commander-in-Chief needs your ethno-religious encouragement in order to arrest them if he is really minded to do so?

    Like I said, as an Igbo man, I am utterly ashamed of this Bishop and all the other terribly narrow-minded Igbo leaders out there who think that Jonathan is worth selling the honour of the Eastern region for his narrow interests that have not improved most Nigerians, even in Otuoke where he comes from.

    This is shameful, more shameful coming from a bishop.

Just 17 people were killed in France, the government and country are in mourning. But Boko Haram killed 13,000 people in two days, it’s business as usual in my country

      Because this is what Goodluck Jonathan wanted to say and because he is a coward, he could not say it. So he recruited Samuel Uche to say it for him. This is what Ayo Oritsejafor’s CAN is doing for Goodluck Jonathan. Samuel Uche is one of the field campaign managers of Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Office. I think it is a good thing that all these are exposed. There is no CAN anywhere. CAN is just an outpost of Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Office.

    Just yesterday, Obanikoro (former Minister of State for defence) claimed on radio that the host communities and the military were sympathetic to boko haram, hence the military’s inability to quell the insurgency. Fani-kayode said the same and called for the break up of Nigeria. This alleged man of God has now parroted the same. Obj (in his more lucid moments) recorded in his book that GEJ’s view is that the BH insurgency is just a case of his enemies killing themselves.
    The unanimous feedback from the president and his hangers-on is that the helpless victims of this insurgency are self flagellating sado-masochists responsible for their fate. Yet the president can claim Fulani cattle rearers contributed to his campaign. Big question is, why does GEJ want to continue ruling a country whose unity he does not believe in?

      But that is the truth. Kanuri and Fulani tribes are the most wicked human beings ever created on the planet earth. Until you live among them, you will never know this. Kanuris think there are the most superior human beings ever created by God. So when people criticize hausas, I just feel sorry for them because they lack knowledge of northern Nigeria. An average hausa man is very tolerable and humble; very loving and caring, but not fulanis or kanuris. Bishop uche got his information rightly and I know the authorities knows it very well.

    These guys are really desperate. So, the ex Governor of Borno State is no more the prime mover of Boko Haram? It’s the Fulanis now who have managed to impose on the Kanuris the need to team together, attack the Fulani Emirate of Kano, overthrow the Fulani Caliph in Sokoto, eliminate the northern power structure, kill all Hausa-Fulani power create a new Caliphate of unknown configuration, kill tens of thousands of innocent Kanuri women and children, massacre innocent Hausa-Fulani traders in markets, invade Cameroon and pillage Cameroonian villages, all to make the country ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan, so that he will not win an election he supposedly won in 2011…on and his party retain Governorship in the northern states it presently control, including the state of General Muhammadu Buhari.
    To imagine that we have a President and Commander-in-Chief who sat glued in his seat listening, and believing this hogwash speaks clearly of the quality of leadership we have today in Nigeria.

    If one may ask, Nigeria at at any time t, had over 10,000 troops deployed and maintained in Liberia, in a course of war that lasted over 5 years. To secure Monrovia, General Joshua Dongoyaro asked for, and received 12,500 Nigerian soldiers, boosting the size of ECOMOG forces to 15,000 troops, to uproot a Charles Taylor’s NPLF force of roughly the same number as Boko Haram, using the same guerrilla tactics and terrorist practice of hacking of limbs and summary executions…if this was the case, why can our Commander in Chief not deploy even double that force to Maiduguri? Charity, they say begins at home. General Malu asked for and got 16,000 troops to execute the disarmament agreement in Liberia. Nigeria not only stationed an effective fighting force 900 kilometres away from its shores, the force came with results, internationally acclaimed till today. We have heard President Jonathan boast about this in the international media. Nigeria in 1990 earned less than 9 billion dollars as total revenue, yet, the country’s government took over the payment of allowances in hard currency of all ECOMOG troops.

    Nigeria was under severe international arms sanctions, yet in Liberia and Sierra Leone, the country’s political leadership complained to no one about the troops not being provided with choppers by the United States and EU countries. It is most remarkable that even the Russian Federation then under President Yeltsin could not be approached for arms supply, because Russia lacked an independent foreign policy then. The country was broke. The governments we had in Nigeria then, under Generals Babangida in Liberia, and Abacha in Sierra Leone had to contend with severe political problems at home. There was no democracy then. There was NADECO. The country lacked stability and cohesion, unlike now, we have a national parliament, we have democratic structures everywhere and Nigerians are unified in their support for the military’s effort against Boko Haram. In Liberia and Sierra Leone, the military was on its own. Nigerians at home were among the most vocal and unrelenting critics of military intervention in Liberia and Sierra Leone. This did not affect the morale of the troops. Worldwide, moral, physical, even media support for these interventions was next to none. But the troops achieved their goals, with less resources at their disposal.

    Why was this? Fantastic political leadership of the armed forces by the governments in power. Fantastic statecraft. Goal oriented diplomacy. Fantastic leadership of troops by field commanders. Political regimes that understood clearly what their goals were and appropriated resources they had available to the strategic pursuit of the visions they identified. It wasn’t a blame game. Media coverage of what the regimes thought of their detractors were rare. Burkina Faso, Ouagadogou and Washington were engaged in often diplomatically forceful manner, away from the media. In all the meetings, we saw Nigerian diplomats behave with dignity, honour and purpose. Nobody accused the USA or EU of wanting to crash Nigeria by withholding orders for which upfront payments were transferred. In while fighting in Sierra Leone, a second front opened in Bakassi Peninsula, with Cameroonian forces engaging Nigeria in an all out confrontation. The regime in Abuja didn’t moan. It didn’t invite some uninformed clergy to provide it with strategic information on who its enemies were. It didn’t need to. Because we had purposeful leadership of a military establishment at war. Nigeria’s war machine was well oiled, and in all occasions, rose to challenges confronting it.

    If Nigeria could deploy and sustain the deployment of over 10,000 troops actively engaged war theatres over 900 kilometres far away, in course of an over 10 year period, why in goodness name were there less than 1000 troops in a town as strategic as Bagga last week? If General Dongoyaro requested for and was given 12,500 troops to push the NPLF from Monrovia (a town just a little bigger than Mubi), why is the entire north eastern region of Nigeria protected the so called 7th Division, a newly created Division of about 7,500 troops, which aside from being constrained from performing as an effective fighting force by severe administrative and logistic problems expected of a newly formed division, also has to contend with the personnel problems? Where are the Liberia and Sierra Leone wars veterans? They have been sacked and hounded out of the force? And why were there less than 200 troops defending Mubi the day it was captured by Shakau? We are told that the unit defending Mubi was the so called Special Battalion. We know that a Nigerian Battalion should ordinarily be composed of close to 1000 troops. Why were they 200 in Mubi on that day?

    You don’t need to be a soldier to be able to ask these critical questions, or evaluate their impact on the consequence of a battle. You don’t need to even be a General to analyse plans presented to you by your war council. You don’t need to be a Field Marshall, to provide effective and purposeful political leadership of the armed forces. And you don’t need to waste your precious time, as Commander-in-Chief of an Armed Forces to sit down and listen to such hogwash, such arrant nonsense that smacks of very high treason from some man of God from heaven knows where, to win wars.
    Nigeria is truly in trouble. How did we get here, and how can we navigate ourselves out of this nonsense, in such a way that the country is not destroyed?

    How do we shoo away these journeymen from power?
    This is the question of our time.

    when did Mr. Bishop become intelligence officer? Can he know more than the govt
    that has all the apparatus of military intelligence? All I see here is a

    them did he arrest and prosecute? It is on record that Mr. President absolved
    MEND of the October 2010 bombing. How come he waited till almost one month to
    election to retract the statement? What did he do to those that he claimed will
    make the country ungovernable during 2011 elections? Why did he not arrest and
    prosecute them for treason? Truth is that the PDP govt has lost touch with
    reality and is doing all things possible to paint the opposition black. I see a
    situation where the incumbent will orchestrate nationwide violence & crisis

      Yes, but BiChop Samuel Uchop Uche is actually a BiChop of money inspired by the 21 Billion naira Goodluck Jonathan OILY Campaign Fund-Just a BiChop Colleague of “Pastor” Ayo Oritschopjafor president of CAN-They are Chop Chop BiChops.

    Editor Premium Times,

    I pity Yoruba Christians. They heard and read this warning issued since 2012.
    But they are heedless. They blithely remain un-armed and defenceless,
    even though they are in trouble as the targets of Nigeria’s Islamic Jihad.

    They assume Boko Haram is just a Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri murder machine.
    They do not fully understand the concept of global jihad underway.
    Yoruba Christians do not connect the dots that since Yoruba Muslims
    are active cells in Al Qaeda, those cells are invariably allied to Boko Haram
    – whose stated aim is the ‘mass killings of all Christians’.

    • endingNaija

      Please give the “Yoruba Christians” their own BiCHop too since ‘Pastchop Bosun Emmanuel is not yet a BiChop!!!

  • Bayo Ola

    I’m ashamed to observe that Bishop Uche is now occupying the esteem office once held by Rev. Sunday Mbang. Bishop Mbang spoke truth to power. I remember his preaching during church service to commemorate Obasanjo inauguration in 1999. He spoke truth to Obasanjo without playing to the gallery. He was so eloquent. He was not a preacher politician prophet of doom that intends to set one part of the country against the other. This Bishop Uche has put his church, and Christ ministry in unfavorable positions, with his comments, and it is not funny. If President Jonathan believes these craps( which I think he does) then he should solve the problems. Part of leaders job requirement is to solve problems not to whine about problems. If he cant bear the heat he should step out of the kitchen, and give way to another competent person to lead and solve the problems. And to all Christians in Nigeria, it is time to take back our faith from Bishop Samuel Uche,Ayo Oritshejeafor, Father Mbaka et al Father. Enough is enough

    “THIS IS A WAR TO DECLARE NIGERIA AN ISLAMIC STATE BY FORCE”

    ……………Pastor Bosun Emmanuel

    “Don’t look at Boko Haram as something that is isolated to the North-east; no, no!
    It is meant to spread and cover the entire nation until Christianity is eradicated
    in all its forms and ramifications. There is an Islamic Agenda for Nigeria.

    80% of their (APC) governors are Muslims but now there must be a restructuring.
    In 2015 the Christians must stand up and insist that the Lagos State governor
    must be a Christian. This Islamic agenda unleashed against Nigeria shall fail.

    In September last year God spoke particularly to Dr. Vincent Aigbogun –
    Director General, National Institute of Transformation – that if care is not taken,
    in 30 to 40 years Nigeria will be like Turkey. And God told him. ‘Go and learn
    what happened to Turkey’.
    Turkey used to be 100 percent Christian country.

    But today, Turkey now is 96.04 percent Muslim. Christianity is now 0.24 percent.
    Christianity was in Turkey for 1,123 years but Islam has uprooted it completely.
    Christianity in Nigeria is just 172 years old. If Islam could uproot the Christianity
    planted for 1,123 years in Constantinople, Turkey, tell me if it can’t uproot one
    that is just 172-years-old in Nigeria?”

      that you bear tijan kabba and wear your Islamist mentality on your sleeves,
      but soon you’ll be bracing for a gun on the run unless you are so naive to
      also expect that Yoruba Christians will lie down to be slaughtered by mad Muslims.

    Oga pastor, much as your revered office must be protected and sanctified by all, you allow yourself to be used by die hard ruling mongers, who accuse others of what they do. You openly sound the long held hatred you have over the “others” in your own parlance. It is your principal, who you supported, and still support to dismember Nigeria that wants to split Nigeria. Both of you cannot dismember us. Just collect your share of the loot and go to hide it in Swiss banks. Nigeria must remain as one. No one dare divide us. Whether it is Buhari or anybody we don’t care so long as looters and their supporters are silenced in their houses, not in any jail. They must live to see us great

  • Lanre

    Many Nigerians are still under the false impression that things are going to continue as normal. I doubt it. When the North went on its march towards Sharia, it signed its own death warrant. I have asked repeatedly for Jonathan to do what is sensible. Organize a referendum for Nigerians to decide how they want to live. But No. They want many more to die while Obasanjo keeps junketing around attending one marriage ceremony behaving like a clown.

    It is sad how religious leaders have turned themselves into tools for politicians to use to achieve their political ambition and might.Now the church is being used to deceive the people really sad. why can’t GEJ arrest those involved if he knows them? there is no evidence of any political elite from the north involved in BOKO HARAM. Yes BOKO HARAM members are northerners yes there are our brothers but they have gone astray and we can’t do anything about them if the president is not ready to work with us to kill this insurgents which he has clearly refused he has allow us to bed the consequences of the mistakes of few of us and yet he wants us to vote for him in 2015 after he has refused to come to our aid when we needed him most.

Please remember that what ever you said will remain in the history, therefore always try to control somewhat your emotion, remember you were addressing a congregation you are expected to observe a high level of decorum while on the pulpit because its not a political rally where are free to say what ever you like without recourse. By the way how much did His excellency promise you? . The scriptures said that “By their fruit……………… this is just an admonition. My God guide us

    I have been saying this same thing for years————but because most of the heads of our security agents are Fulanis they would always want to bury such assertions under the ground the same way the Night Soil Men and juju priest in APC are doing all in their power to hide the certificate wahala of buhari–the kanuris involved in boko haram –are fulanis who were born and raised in borno state—-that is why I find it hard to believe that–dasuki a Fulani prince cannot design a plan on how to end the boko haram crisis———————Fulani are one and same people all over the African continent—they speak the same dialect with Buhari–gusua–atiku—–elrufai—–sanusi and the sultan of sokoto—-so why have they not been able to tme them——the same way Nigerians are asking buhari to show his certificates to us

    It was Rotimi Amaechi, when he was in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that told Nigerians that “those who carry brooms are night soil men and juju priests,” but little did he know he was going to downgrade himself one day to that status and turn full circle to return to where he actually belongs.

    Recently, Amaechi reportedly threatened that the APC would form a parallel government should the 2015 elections fail to meet the expectations of the party. He was reported to have said he would lead a rebellion and spearhead civil disobedience across the country, adding that the days were gone when any figures ascribed as votes for former Head of State and presidential aspirant, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, by the electoral umpire in Rivers would be accepted.

I remember when Reverend Ejike Mbaka commented the whole manners of accusations were centred at him even though I’m not subscribing to what he said anyway. May God Almighty guide our religious leaders both Muslims and Christians so that they can focus on their ordained role as Imams or Priests/clerics not to be engaging in partisan politics. May God guide us aright and protect us and give good leaders.

    Just imagine how many innocent people have been killed?

    The whole world sympathizes with France for ‘just’ 17 people killed, but Nigeria has lost about 2,551 persons in one week and no external media is talking about it, no African, European or American leader is saying anything about Nigeria. Why? Bcos here in Nigeria, stuuuuupppppeeeeeed people support idddddddiiiiiooooots who sympathize with terrorists for political positions at all levels. So why should the world bother about Nigeria?

        Call it intelligence or stuuuuuupiiidddiiittty or both, a system that condones such discrimination is not one country…and no different from the partisan antics of many with regard to Boko haram islamic terrorists. In any case, one who has to score just 2 where the ideal is 135, would surely be willing to be a suicide bomber bcos the IQ to resist is just not there. So, in my own opinion, making cut off entry marks equal for all Nigerians (as long as we are yet to disintegrate) is a first step and probably a solution to stopping young children from taking up suicide bombing.

If Nigeria will follow your submission of entrance to unity schools as wrong, so also Niger Deltans will never be Our President when the Population of Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa comprises 85% of Nigeria population.

      Your stupidity is made poignant in this post. Because Jonathan is president no one else should aspire to the position. Are northerners not Nigerians? When Niger Delta militants were kidnapping people and creating mayhem in the region did Yar’ Adua maintain the same position this GEJ has taken? He found solutions and changed the situation he inherited. You people conveniently forgot that Obasanjo and Yar’Adua had to deal with similar problems. Your GEJ does not have what it takes to be president. He is just a PINO – President In Name Only.

        …however poignant, however not is left for only the sound mind to determine.

        But how are Northerners Nigerians when their students have to score just 2 marks and those from the East, South & West have to score an average of 135 and in some cases 137? Do not evade this question, just try and answer and let the world see how ‘sensible’ you are.

        But I tell you this day, a slave who loves his chains remain slaves forever. When a man takes his child to boko haram and offer her as a suicide bomber…and that man claims to share the same nationality with me? No! Person wey dey cry dey see road.

    My dear Bishop, are you making excuses for Jonathan’s government or pointing the way forward? Why did you not ask President Jonathan why he expressed his sympathies to the French government, but not to the people of Borno State killed by Boko Haram. We well know that Jonathan is wary of discussing Boko Haram, as it reminds voters that the conflict has erupted under his management and that his government has been unable to subdue the terror group. But be aware that Jonathan and Shekau are in charge of Nigeria today. This much is fact.

  • King Carlos

    It’s like bishops and pastors are now falling over themselves to cast aspersions on the opposition party. When the head is rotten, the whole body is useless. Ayo Oritsejafor set the precedence for all this. He dragged the church into politics and statenents from clergymen are now similar to political party spokespersons. I just wonder what comes to the mind of VP Sambo when his religion and his people are being insulted. It’s like he has sacrificed his dignity just to be in government.

    BUHARI Is Corrupt And Not clean.
    **a man that stole $2.8billion in 1978 as NNPC Fed
    commissioner.
    **Buhari advised Muslims not to vote any Christian
    candidate.
    **as PTF Chairman, Buhari embezzled billions of
    Naira through over-invoicing of supplies & the
    supply of fake & expired drugs to hospitals
    Which Buhari is clean? It is only in Nigeria that a
    man who embezzled $2.8 billion NNPC money while
    he was Federal Commissioner of Petroleum in 1978
    will be described as disciplined, isn’t it? “It is only in
    Nigeria that a man who led the criminal overthrow
    of a democratically elected government in 1984
    would later wish to benefit from the same
    democracy.
    “It is only in Nigeria that the man who, as Head of
    State, allowed 56 illegal suitcases of currency notes
    into the country through his ADC unchecked when
    there was currency change by his own government
    in the country at the time would be described as a
    man of his words. “It is only in Nigeria that the man
    who enacted RETROACTIVE DECREES and used them
    to murder Lawal Ojuolape, Bartholomew Owoh and
    Bernard Ogedengbe would be promoted as being
    better than others.
    “It is only in Nigeria that the man who enacted
    vindictive decrees which prescribed long jail terms
    for journalists for publishing stories which
    embarrassed government officials EVEN IF THE
    STORIES WERE TRUE resulting in the illegal jailing of
    Tunde Thompson and Nduka Irabor is now better
    than the President Jonathan who has signed the FOI
    bill into law to enable all citizens to have unhindered
    access to information on Government activities.
    What an irony! “It is only in Nigeria that the man
    who was overthrown in 1985 by Babangida and
    spontaneous jubilations erupted all over the country
    would have the guts to seek to replace people who
    are far better than he.
    **”It is only in Nigeria that the man who later
    accepted appointment as PTF Chairman under the
    MOST CORRUPT government ever in Nigeria’s
    history and then commandeered more than 200 PTF
    vehicles for private use in his home in Kaduna
    would not be in jail today.
    Remember, he later said that Abacha did not loot
    anything from Nigeria! This is the man who, in his
    supporters’ opinion, will have zero tolerance for
    corruption!

    With the present composition of officers in charge of security, there is no way Nigeria can defeat book haram unless we are deceiving ourselves. Secret Services – Dasuki (Muslim), Fulani man, Defense Minister – Rtd. General Gusau (Muslim), Fulani man, Inspector General of Police (Muslim), Hausa/Fulani man, Interior Minister – Abba Moro (Muslim), Fulani man, Attorney General/Minister of Justice – Muslim from north, Chief Justice – Muslim from core north.

    • Who appointed these people into these positions? Perhaps you should ask Jonathan why he appoints people he knows cannot give him victory over Boko Haram. This them opens up a big question. Did Jonathan appoint and retain these people he knows cannot give him victory over Boko Haram because Jonathan does not want victory over Boko Haram for reasons best known to him? Jonathan deliberately does not want victory over Boko Haram. Don’t ask me how I came to this conclusion. Your comment actually suggests this conclusion. In order words, you are the owner of the conclusion from the analysis of your comment.

      • TruNja

        @ Peace – it is just unfortunate that we elected a clueless, inept president. Dasuki who is charge of secret service, is an in-law of Babangida and once the latter’s body guard.

  • Omo Akin

    Jonathan started the politics of religion through Oritshajefor and the other “1,000 pastors” but the APC checkmate them with the selection of a pastor as the VP. Instead of Jonathan’s campaign to learn and focus on issues, it has been shopping for christian clerics to put in innuendos and sentiments without facts to hoodwink Christians for political advantage of Jonathan. The irony is that all these religious moves are counter-productive and will negatively affect Jonathan’s chances. When this bishop is castigating Hausas, Fulanis and Kanuris right before Jonathan, what will Jonathan tell these people when he goes up north to campaign there? It was the same way that Dokubo and Clarke were calling every other sections of Nigeria names without Jonathan cautioning them as a national leader. Now those sections do not believe they have a part in the Jonathan project. No wonder Obasanjo described him as clannish. There is no way Christians will give Jonathan a block vote no matter how many bishops they recruit, so the earlier they stop wasting their time the better.
    Actually, an average Christians (not the merchants ferrying millions of dollars in their private jet) should be angry with Jonathan (as the C-I-C) for his failure to protect them.

    I am a Northern Muslim I was very supportive of the doctrine of necessity that catapulted GEJ to act as acting president in 2009, I was alive when he diverted funds meant for the dredging of river Niger, I was alive when he absolved his people, the Niger Deltans for the October 1 bombing even after Orkar had insisted on his participation, and exposing a part of the Presidency for reaching out to him in a bid to implicate some people from the Northern part of Nigeria. I assess my support for him in 2009 and in that regret what I did. I can’t understand what this Bishop is thinking by this remark, I concede that the bulk of BH fighters are Kanuri, but what I find hard to beat is his saying that the insurgency is aimed at GEJ. I want to ask the man of God a question, who are the biggest victims of the insurgency? The Economy of the North has been brought to its Kness, our leaders have either been attacked by this sect, some even killed. Ordinary people in thousands have lost their lives, The late Emir of Kano escaped death by the whiskers, The Shehu of Borno, Emir of Gwaza, General Buhari and many others. The Central Mosque in Kano has hosted worshipers for over 500 years, this BH guys attacked it and put and end to that history, how many Muslim homes have been burnt, how many Muslim lives have been lost. And yet someone somewhere is telling me that BH is the brainchild of Northern leadership designed to give GEJ a bad name.

    MORNING NEWS NIGERIA: A PROACTIVE MEASURE FOR NORTH

    “Reports
    are flying that Northern leaders who had hitherto supported Buhari may
    be making a U-turn in the February elections after reports that the
    general may be having a serious health problem.

    This is following the online rumors that Buhari collapsed during his presidential campaign rally in Calabar.

    Even though the APC denied the report, it has given cause for worry,
    and the North has become wary, after they were ‘sidelined’ after
    Yar’Adua died in May, 2010 before completing his tenure, a development
    which led to the abrupt shift of power to the South-South under the
    rulership of incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.

    “The North is
    beginning to rethink the promised support for Buhari in view of reports
    that he is suffering from a certain ailment which is believed to be
    wearing him down. There are also reports that the elders are pushing to
    cut a deal with Jonathan to complete his tenure in 2019 but extract a
    promise that power would be returned to the North via a younger and
    energetic Northerner,” a source said.

    “If anything happens to
    Buhari, power will return to the South-West less than a decade after
    President Obasanjo left Aso Rock. The prospects are grim, both for the
    North and even the South-East that is queuing for their own turn,”
    another Northern top personality is reported as saying” —NIGERIAN
    BULLETIN

  • Shuaibu Bola Victor

    In the same vein, the APC presidential candidate,a former military dictator, General Muhammed Buhari during his 1983/84/85 junta
    cannot boast of any investment in agriculture. Today, with the unique
    intervention by President Jonathan, Nigeria’s food import has declined by $5.3
    billion between 2013 and 2014 even with our increasing population. Our nation
    now ranks as one of the biggest food producers in Africa with our food
    production expanding by an additional 21 million metric tonnes, between
    2011 and 2014, a record exceeding the nation’s set target of 20 million metric
    tonnes set for 2015.
