I warned Jonathan against Boko Haram ceasefire, Chad’s President opens up

President Jonathan & President Deby during a bilateral meeting in Ndjamena, Chad

President Idris Deby of Chad has spoken publicly about the 2014 botched ceasefire between the Nigerian government and the jihadist group, Boko Haram, which he was said to have facilitated.

Mr. Deby said he warned President Goodluck Jonathan against holding talks with the militant group, saying the whole episode was orchestrated by Boko Haram to buy time and regroup.

He said President Jonathan dismissed the advice and held talks with the group, a decision Mr. Deby said was for political reasons. He accused Mr. Jonathan of downplaying the Boko Haram threat.

“I told President Goodluck not to open negotiations with terrorists … but it was a political choice,” Mr. Deby told French magazine, Le Point, in an interview republished by AFP news agency.

“It has become something too serious for Nigerians to ignore. The blood of the dead that we have been counting every day for the past few years demands attention.”

The October ceasefire humiliated the Nigerian government after it claimed to have reached a deal with the insurgents, who are responsible for more than 15,000 deaths.

At the time, the Nigerian military said the talks were credible and directed its field commanders to immediately suspend hostilities against Boko Haram.

The talks were reportedly facilitated by Mr. Deby, accused earlier of providing safe haven for Boko Haram militants.

Shortly after the announcement, Boko Haram continued its attacks, sacking villages and killing innocent people.

The Nigerian government initially claimed splinter groups of the sect were responsible for the continued fighting, but later blamed the failure on sabotage.

Mr. Deby said President Jonathan and his military had underestimated Boko Haram for too long.

“The whole world is asking why the Nigerian army, which is a big army… is not in a position to stand up to untrained kids armed with Kalashnikovs,” he said.

Speaking about the ongoing war that involves Chad, Niger and Cameroun, Mr. Deby said the Nigerian military has not cooperated with his country in fighting the jihadists.

He said the two sides have not had any direct contact since Chad became involved in the conflict.

“Two months after the start of this war, we have not had any direct contact with the Nigerian army units on the ground,” he said.

“We would have hoped to have at least one Nigerian unit with us. It was even a direct request to the Nigerian government, but for reasons that escape us, up to now we have been unable to work together.”

He said his country has had to capture territories twice in Nigeria, as the Nigerian military would not take over towns, allowing Boko Haram to return.

“The Chadian army is fighting alone in its part of the Nigerian interior and that is a problem. We have had to retake certain towns twice,” Mr. Deby said. “We are forced to abandon them and Boko Haram returns, and we have to go back. That has a human and material cost.”

Mr. Deby said Boko Haram has long been trained by ISIS in Libya, and that the group’s recent public declaration of allegiance was a mere formality that did not surprise him.

“(IS) has always trained young people from Boko Haram in the use of explosives, the use of heavy weapons and armoured vehicles. They are trained by (IS) in Libya… and are then sent to Nigeria,” he told Le Point.

“I’m not surprised that (Boko Haram leader) Abubakar Shekau, who has difficulties at the moment… is trying to make people believe that he only just made contact with them.”

    It will be a disaster for all of Africa if Buhari is elected” –

    …………………..Says America’s U.N Diplomat

    “Mr. Muhammadu Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state
    would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the
    West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.
    Western foreign policy observers, pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS
    in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria.

    Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria.
    In fact, he wants it everywhere. “I will continue to show openly and inside
    me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over
    Nigeria
    ,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for
    the total implementation of the Sharia in the country [Nigeria]
    .”

    Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because
    the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an
    Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by leaders
    of the Obama administration.”

    ………..Richard Grenell

    Longest serving U.S United Nations Spokesman in
    history, was a spokesman for four United States
    Ambassadors to the United Nations. He wrote
    in Washington Times (March 20th, 2015)

    • Olu

      It will be a total and self-destruction to reelect Jonathan. Nigeria has never been this terrible.

    • zacchaeus Akinleye

      Grenell, who is a political operative in the ranks of conservative Republican party and was fired from the Romney presidential campaign because of his “gay” orientation does not represent a credible voice on foreign policy in America. His childish writing in the Washington Times is his jaundiced opinion with high nuisance value.

    • Mr Brenell, when was the last time a US President forced a religious system on the USA? Nigeria is running a democratic government modelled against the US’s. You must know that, as Buhari has said many times, no one can overlay a religious system also on Nigeria. Please, quit the sllander. Thanks.

    • Tanko Maihula

    Buhari’s pre-election position on Boko Haram

    “Former Head of State and National leader of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC,
    Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd.) has thrown his weight behind the proposed amnesty.
    for Islamic sect – Boko Haram – commending the Federal Government for setting up a committee
    that will look into the feasibility of granting amnesty to the sect’s members.

    This is not the first time amnesty would be given to a violent group, you remember it happened in the time
    of Yar ‘Adua when he granted amnesty to militants in the Niger Delta. Whatever that would bring us peace
    as a society, we should do it”.

      AT NIGERIA’S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TODAY; NAMELY:

      • Law Offices (New York, U.S.A)

        Investigator:

        Muhammadu Buhari is the most corrupt:

        Nigerians need to understand the meaning of ‘corruption‘ and use the word correctly.
        Corruption means dis-honest intention expressed by finessing a crooked outcome. Within that
        precise definition of corruption, Muhammadu Buhari is the most corrupt Nigerian.

        Anyone aspiring to rule a country must not lie, conceal or hide his qualifications for that office.
        Since December 10th, 2014, Buhari has lied against the Army on his supposed Waec certificate.
        Till today, he’s hung onto delay tactics and long adjournments in court to avoid a confession.

        He plots to wangle the presidency of Nigeria without confessing the truth of his qualifications
        That’s equivalent to forging an instrument to defraud a whole country and take over the treasury.
        Under the common law, an attempt to commit larceny of that sort is punishable as a crime itself.

      Buhari has asked the Federal Government to stop the clampdown of Boko Haram insurgents, saying Niger Delta Militants were never killed or properties belonging to them destroyed.

      Buhari who spoke on Sunday on a Liberty Radio programme, Guest of the Week monitored said accused the government of killing and destroying houses belonging to Boko Haram members while the Niger Delta militants get special treatment.

      The former dictator said that unlike the special treatment given to the Niger Delta militants by the federal government, the Boko Haram members were being killed and their houses demolished by government.

      While accusing President Jonathan of failing from the beginning to address the security situation in the country, Buhari said he has never been in support of the state of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa state.

Am sure if this killing is happening in Bayelsa he would have taken a drastic measures to stop it. Even though his wife lady hippo sacrifice Bayelsa PDP women for political ritual in a motor crashed. Nigerians this is the time to flush out this criminal from office, how can a responsible leader underestimate the capacity of this rag tag militia and watch them killed over 20,000 people and millions displaced, only to realize their capacity after election postponement. is it this kind of leadership should continue? Nigerians should bear in mine that the recent defeat of BH is political, if you mistakenly vote in GEJ, BH will resurface again, because we were only told story of recapture territories, but where are the bokoharam captured or even their corpses their leaders like shekau?

    Second Republic member of the House of Representatives and Russian trained Medical Doctor, Junaid Mohammed, has declared that blood would flow on the streets of Nigeria, should President Jonathan insist on running for the presidency in 2015.
    Speaking in an exclusive interview with Sunday Sun from his base in Kano, the former lawmaker, who chaired the House Committee on International Economic Relations and Socialist Bloc, argued that it was wrong for anyone to suggest that the clamour for power to return to the North in 2015, was coming from the North alone, insisting that there abound more agitators in the South-west, in this regard, than there are in the North, adding that “I can tell you today that there are more agitators in the South-west, for power shift to the North, than there are in the North. And they are doing this because they believe in justice and fairness. If you have faith in a system, you must ensure the system runs fairly and justly too.

  • GEJ failed on all fronts while compromising on security despite all OBJ’s advice on Boko Haram, This Badluck allowed his lieutenants to corruptly enrich themselves while he concentrated on the juicy national treasury. It has never been this bad even with the North that we usually associate with below par leadership.
    GEJ’s government of deceit has destroyed virtually everything that we hold so dear in this country. It is a shame that despite the high global crude prices, the campaign achievements of GEJ are located on the 18th century trains, Almajiri schools,13 one block Universities, Agriculture etc.
    On power, the guy simply looted the foreign component therein and transferred generation and distribution into private hands while launching already built power stations by OBJ like the Olorunsogo,Omotosho, Geregu plants etc as his without electricity to the poor folks. He converted OBJ’s Nomadic schools to Almajiri schools just a change of nomenclature like he did for the revamped rail sector.A train that still takes over three hours between Lagos and Ibadan is worse than a millipede, With all the hullabaloo about the successes in agriculture, GEJ gave imported rice as campaign gifts. GEJ encouraged vehicle assembly in a period when Dunlop, Michelin and other companies are relocating to Ghana due to power problems.
    Our reserves have dried up with exchange rate approaching N250 to the US dollar.
    We all need change but we must strive for it by informing our less educated families in the towns and villages to accept GEJ freebies but should reject him at the polls.

    Poll Of Polls, March 2015: FINAL RESULTS.
    1] Goodluck Jonathan (PDP) – – – 57.1%.
    2] Muhammadu Buhari. (APC) – – 40.6%.
    3] Others/Undecided. – Voters – – 2.3%.

    Poll Notes And factors.
    a) There have been a massive shift in support for Jonathan in S/West, as result of better understanding of his plans for the region since the election date was moved. 63% to 37% for GEJ.

    b) The Victories by Nigerian Troops, Buhari’s Chatham House lies Saga and exposure of how Tinubu and his groups squandered Lagos wealth and other APC states was damaging to Buhari who campaigns on Security and anti-corruption.

    c) The North central Minorities and Christians see the election of Jonathan as a Vote for their freedom of worship and security against domination from core-North.

    d) North West stands strong for Buhari as . 66% : 34% to Buhari.

    e) Buhari’s only strenght in S/South, Rivers state, has zeroed to what it was in 2011. 95% : 5% to GEJ.

    f) N/East result will not change significantly from 2011. Buhari has edge in the region. 60% :40% to Buhari.

    g) Imo state is the only stronghold of APC in Imo, but the Governor encounter with the catholic church has eroded that. APC members are voting for GEJ and Okorocha as their Governor. This will not change the 2011 result that much. 93% : 7% to GEJ.

    This result is the Aggregate Polls of the Presidential Election, conducted between March 16 -26, 2015. It is +4 and -4 Margin of error

      Daydreamer!!! Its evironmental sanitation day, the broom is essential today! Jonathan will not get 5% in almost all northern state. After allowing boko haram to destroy the north, do u think we are fools? The recent successes by the govt further enraged the ppl coz if the evil wicked heartless president can defeat boko haram in 6wks, why allow them wreck havoc, kill thouands, displace millions and destroy ppls lives in the past 6yrs? Moreover, the speech of the shepopotamus first lady further compounds issues for the PDP. Her insult against the people of the north has cancelled even the little support her clueless husband has. Personally knew of 8 ppl who angrily stopped aupporting GEJ.
      On the southwest, GEJ thinks by sharing dollars the ppl of the southwest are fools. Hell No Mr! This are educated and sophisticated ppl who knew GEJ has short changed them in 2011 and APC with Tinubu, Osinbanjo offer them better chance. Coz the APC is more of southwest than the North.
      The only savior of the PDP is to rig the election which the masses wld massively reject!

      Stop commenting on social media pls. U just keep on exposing ur stupidity.

      So Buhari is the founder of boko haram and he is walking around a free man? Even contesting a presidential election? Why can’t GEJ who is the C-in-C and controls all securities and resources of the federation investigate, probe, prosecute, arrest and jail him???????

      Wow! GEJ is even more dumber than we even envisage……..

  • Shehu Monguno

    During the cease fire the Chadian foreign minister was on AFP where he said the cease fire was real and was been negotiated by his president now this? hmmmm

    • West

      Can you give us the link for the claimed interview? Why was he not reminded by the person conducting the interview?Serial liar! Jonathan is a serial murderer and the whole world knows this and that explains why he is being isolated by the other world leaders. President Buhari will personally hand him over to ICC come May 29th 2015

          Oga God go helep you o, I just went through the article of the link you posted, so an insinuation from some Nigeria reporter as regards the last bogus Boko Haram ‘ceasefire’ which the Chadian President just clarified here is what you are posting as link to justify what! the fact that the Chadian President is lying that he warned Goodluck Jonathan about any ceasefire with them, that it was a decoy….who don’t know that Jonathan hurried over ceasefire so he could announce his bid for second term, it was the ‘following’ day after their useless casefire was announced that they rolled the drums for him that he’ll be contesting for 2015 elections, now the Chadian President is the one lying again…confused people..as if he is the one in the heat of Boko Haram…rubbish!

          • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

      • Daniel Ikwuagwu

        Shehu Monguno is right. I strongly believe the Chadian President is not to be trusted. The guys is VERY SMART. Smarter than our president, unfortunately.

        After reading the accounts of Dr. Davies, the Australian Boko-Haram negotiator (who this government tried vainly to discredit) and other related stories, I knew there were some other-current plays by some Nigerians working even within the government to either line their pockets mischievously (amnesty and all) or gain some diabolic millage. I, among others, sounded my suspiscions in commentaries. All you needed to have done to suspect fowl plays was read up news feeds and listen to the numerous high class inconsistencies flying around on our public domain to conclude that all was not well.

        What I found VERY PERPLEXING however was that our top notch security chiefs and outfits were TOO busy raiding the opposition party offices based on outlandish and upside-down accusations to even notice anything was wrong. The murderers had field days while the innocent were being haunted and hounded by Madam Orgar and the government’s defenders (Metuh, Okupe, etc).

        It was an AWEFUL and VERY ELEMENTARY judgement by the president. That kind of judgement costs. It will cost him some today, vote-wise.

        We need not harpoon one another here. Let us just analyze the facts. People who deliberately live in denials will only end up fooling themselves. Let us do all and say all for the sake of the nation. Sentiments aside please.

      • Shehu Monguno

        Nigeria’s ceasefire negotiation with Boko Haram is still on, an official of the Chadian government has told Reuters. The truce announced by the Nigerian government on October 17 appears to have broken down with renewed exchange of fire.

        But Moussa Mahamat Dago, the No. 2 at Chad’s foreign ministry, told Reuters that the negotiations brokered by the country’s government in N’Djamena were still on. The insurgents want a prisoner swap, which they had always demanded from the time they claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok.

        Nigeria is not inclined to a swap deal for the girls, except it would involve non-combatants such as women and children accused of aiding terrorism. “Quite possibly, those that are fighting are dissidents that even they aren’t able to control. So far, there is no reason for others to doubt this agreement,” he said concerning the renewed crossfire.

        He added: “The starting condition of Boko Haram was the liberation of some of their members … That is the compensation. “We remain optimistic. The two sides agreed to find a negotiated solution and to show their good faith, they already freed some hostages and announced a ceasefire.” Dago said he had seen a summary of the deal reached in Chad last month, according to Reuters.

    What really is the purpose of this wishy washy article?
    I thot campaigns ended hours ago according to INEC laws??
    Why then is PT ‘campaigning’ here for APC?? Only a retard will not realise this subversive write up is a poorly veiled campaign.
    For the brainwashed APC minions here, why have they turned a blind eye to the relevant post of burning spear as to what led GEJ to the so called ‘dialogue’ with BH??
    No if I may refresh their minds; WHO AND WHO WERE MOST VOCIFEROUS IN THE CALL FOR WHAT THIS CHADIAN MAN TERMED A ‘POLITICAL CHOICE’??
    What made this war prolong is the lack of cohesion amongst Nigerians. Unfortunately, the elites of this region INCLUDING THEIR ELDERS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS were in the forefront of the call for the grant of ‘amnesty’ for the BH..prodded on by most of the APC minions making noise here now!
    I am strongly beginning to align with the school of thought that APC is a party full of PROPAGANDISTS AND INSURGENTS!

        As a Nigerian with a stake in this country, part of my purpose is to see that the truth most be told at all times. PT’s purpose should be to provide news in an unbiased fashion..ours is to analyse..which I’ve done.

          You’re trying to make sense but as a media person you are wrong, news as long as it it genuine, of worth and can grab attention is the fuel of news mediums regardless of the day and time, but some of you have so judged anything that portrays Jonathan in ‘poor’ light to be a bad thing, do you not understand that those reporting can’t be using concerns for the President or anyone’s feeling to post their news, if that is what they have to do then many stuffs posted here will not be here except trash and nonone will come here to read, fact, just stop been judgmental people have to do their work, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan should have done his homework…bless!

          The only retard singing a different song here is you.

          And these are lies; we all told Dumbo not to negotiate with terrorists and Chadian President just also confirmed he told him same so, it was Dumbo’s choice. Stop making excuses for a lame duck President; it has not helped him this far and it will not help him at this moment. Your statement has only suggested he has no mind of his own ! It is better you keep shut and people assume u are intelligent that open up and remove all doubts. Only a psychopath would ignore the citizens he preside over for 6 years at the mercy of terrorists until 6 weeks to election. I guess we need to hold election every 6 weeks to get Dumbo to drop the bottle and do the needful . I never knew Boko could be constrained in weeks until now. Keep defending the clueless, i only wished your sister/brother/mother/father was one of the 15000 killed and would then have liked to see your opinion.

          • kamal Kamoru

            My people in the north central where I am from have been killed for donkey years even before this BH menace.
            That is why we cannot forget in a hurry your candidate’s stance on granting amnesty to terrorists!
            Or have you forgotten his position on this issue?? Be true to yourself Mr MESS.
            See, you’ve proven your dishonesty and vile nature time and time again on this forum, like terrorists, no decent person should ‘dialogue’ with u.
            Keep up the good work of mounting vigil here while others cast their votes.

          • tundemash

            Can you tell this forum the period that there was genocide of your people in North Central that got thousands killed in 6 years? Who cares where you are from ….. did abacha not kill yaradua a fellow northerner? Were fellow Ijaws not used as witnesses against Saro Wiwa in the murder case that got him killed ? Sorry that ethnic sentiment just exposed how feeble minded you are ! A sane mind would query why something that could be done in 6 weeks was deliberately delayed for 6 years but psychopaths think alike anyway.
            Give me the link to that position of your candidate on Boko Haram issue and how does the stance of anyone dictate to Dumbo his responsibility of protecting Nigerians he swore an oath to protect ? This exposes your stup1dity and i warned you earlier it is better you keep shut than open up and remove all doubts about your stup1dity. You claimed earlier the bucks stops at Dumbo’s stable and now you talking about someone’s stance on BH…. how do those two relate to each other Mr. Confused Soul ? Was Dumbo looking out for Buhari’s stance before he acts ?
            Be free for stup1dity, it kills.

As we share views and info online, please don’t forget to go for your accreditation and cast your vote for change. God bless you all.

      • Segun

        Was it not the entire Northern Elders Buhari inclusive who insisted that GEJ negotiate with these jihadists?
        In fact Buhari insisted that the Boko Haram insurgents be treated like the Niger Delta Militants and given amnesty.
        We must always speak the truth .
        GEJ acted on the advice of the north that truly did not want an end to the killing initially but wanted Boko Haram to act as some sort of pressure group on the rest of Nigeria.
        GEJ and the Nigerian army had almost contained Boko haram when Northerners started shouting Genocide.- specifically that Ihejerika and the Nigerian army was involved in a genocidal war.
        GEJ responded by removing Ihejerika and negotiating with the Boko Haram Insurgents.
        How disingenuous of you to now blame him for all the deaths
        Hindsight is 20 20
        The fact of the matter is that we as a country read these Boko Haram jihadists wrongly.
        Those like GMB who knew the real intent of this group acted the Camelon and played both sides with the hope of scoring political points later.
        GEJ is also to blame because as commander in chief he has the aultimate responsibility of ensuring that life and property is secure in Nigeria
        He should never have listened to the Northern elders.
        Anyway Never again would Any part of Nigeria be occupied by Jihardists.
        Never.

    “The Nigerian government, for its part, has flatly denied recruiting

    Nations International Convention against the Recruitment, Use, Financing
    and Training of Mercenaries, makes their recruitment for use in the
    country illegal. Instead, President Goodluck Jonathan, running for

      The war has been on for over 6 years now and the fact that civilian JTF was even more effective than the Army.

    This is not any campaign but to inform the good people of Nigeria that PDP is at it again. Since last night, the PDP and her evil agents have been using the name of APC and Alhaji Ahmed Bola Tinubu, sending out messages to people to vote for Jonathan. This is the height of irresponsibility and also flouting the Electoral Law that prohibits campaign of any kind after midnight Thursday, March 26, 2015. The desperation of Jonathan and PDP cannot be overemphasised. If they have done well, as they claim, why resort to bribery, impersonation and other criminal means to undermine the democratic process. Nigerian should disregard PDP and Jonathan’s evil machination. It over for them. God Bless Nigeria

  • BTT

    Nigerian army and the president are in dis-accord for the first time in history. If GEJ called for help from AU and Chad, why cant he direct NG army to work with them as the CinC? Thanks to neighbor Chad and Niger, albeit our borders are opened up to their military to come and fight BH at will. Even if they came on good will, honestly we are in trouble as a country. And for the first time in history, why must mercenaries, in pretense of training soldiers be used on battle front on NG soil? Things that had never happened before is happening now. Lastly why must GEJ politicize BH issue allowing thousands to die because it’s not a south-south issue? When it became obvious that PDP was loosing popularity, he decided to buy back votes by postponing elections to fight BH at all cost with glaring fact that the issue will cost him his political ambition. Nigerians should shine their eyes. We should not be moved by emotions or ethnic and religion sentiments that will take us no where. We need change. We should not vote again based on sympathy. No electric power in Nigeria, our industries are crumbling, children failing WAEC, doctors and lecturers tired of strikes, unemployment at its peak, corruption all over. What is the fate of our children’s destinies if things continue this way? We have seen what GEJ could do for 6 years, let’s try some else and see the difference. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • oma

      The one sympatic is opposition and the likes of you who fails to understand. You should blame the man who promised to make Nigeria ungovernable because he genuinely failed election instead of blaming GEJ. BH is not GEJ’s baby but an accomplishment of the evil promise made to us. They know the beginning of BH and because of it, told us to give them power so that they will reorder their militias to stop. God Almighty is above them and today will use their broom to sweep them back to the back where they belong since GEJ and the military have beat them to it. This of course they fought hard to stop by waiving the big issue of election shift, security by stressing that they need to maintain tempo whether or not the elections are safe. We are not surprise. After all, the dogs and baboons will soaked in blood if they genuinely lost again. It is a lie, God is above them

    I am happy! I am happy! I am happy! I am happy that today marks the end of one of the worst regimes in Nigeria. We asked for food he gave us stones. May we never see his kind again in this land.

    This is what most Nigerians have been saying that jonathan and the military went to sleep for six years and let the terrorist boko haram embarrass us to a ridiculous extent. In 2011, I campaigned for jonathan but not for pdp but today, I will not vote for him because everything about him and pdp is about power and politics not for the overall interest of Nigeria and Nigerians. jonathan is not fit to continue as Nigerian president IJN.

    some of you in this forum are sick for blaming the president for accepting a ceasefire with bokoharam. as a peace loving president I think it was appropriate for him to have done that. let not forget it is of customary to the principles of conflict resolution to sick for peace and settlement before going to war. we should appreciate the president for using SIX weeks to put the activities of bokoharam to an end , the same thing iran, Syria and Iraq can’t do to isis for two years now, even American has spent more than ten years in Afghanistan. Pakistan and Yemen. but can’t crush the taliban the hesbollah, and the alshabab then why can’t we praised Jonathan for this feet than saying trash.

      Dont be silly! You should ask yourself why it took 6 yrs for Jonathan to what he should do as president.

    My grouse with the President on this issue is the reluctance to face BH head on and fiercely the way Maitatsine was dealt with previously. He was myopic by believing it was a Northern issue let them carry on. This exposed him as weak and dishonest leader. It also eventually became an open secret that he was not a President for the entire Nigeria confirmed by his reaction to the abduction of the Chibok girls. With such attitude, BH became a menace under his watch even if it didn’t start during his tenure. Such groups the world over exploit weak or absent leadership as we have witnessed in Nigeria. The President also compromised the military and they were not able to fight back which was another terrible on our leadership and army. What I am trying to highlight here is, there would have been no need to contemplate negotiating with BH if we had decisive and honest leadership in Nigeria, we certainly did not have this under GEJ. No word on the Chibok girls still and the whole world is watching.

      Leave to where? No one person can govern that difficult country. Point out what Jonathan has done wrong and constructively encourage him for a change. Any new person in that Aso Rock will not fair better, if the criminal along the corridors of power are not changed. Given another chance he might turn things around.He obviously messed up in some areas, but has learnt his season, which informed the change of cabinet members. Obama in his first 4 years looked hopeless and didn’t believe he would be given a second chance. But American people knew better, economic process takes some time for dividends turn out. Now he has been able to stir American economy in the right direction, back to a string position it was before Bush came to power. Rushing to change government does not ogur well, especially when there is no civil strife

        My friend, have you been sleeping? Don’t waste our time here. How can someone be asking for what Jonathan has done wrong after all these campaigns? Is it the over 15000 dead? Or the depletion of our foreign reserves? Or that the exchange rate is now 230 to the dollar? Or the massive corruption in all spheres of life? Or the continuing use of militants, thieves and other undesirables as key spokespersons and leaders of his party? Or the ethnic and religious division that the moron keeps stoking? Or the disobedience of our laws?

        Stop lying about Obama. He achieved all his major agenda items – solving the financial crisis, rescuing the auto industry, pulling out of Iraq and setting a firm timeline for leaving Afghanistan, Obamacare, getting Osama bin Laden – in his first term apart from immigration. Even that, he used executive orders to grant two-year stays to illegal Mexicans. Typical PDP. Why are you asking us to vote for a guy who has failed? You think the 2nd term election is to reward failures and punish successful leaders? Upside down thinking.

        Good point,how about you name one good thing his done in the SIX years he’s spent in office……..I thought once bitten should be twice shy,may be i was wrong. P.S. ask the chibok girls what he as done wrong

  • Yahaya

    This Chadian President, are you campaigning against Jonathan? The reckless disrespect for Jonathan will be rewarded by his overwhelming victory. He is the best president Nigeria has ever had. Jonathan is bringing all the change we want.

    • August January

      You call it campaigning against Jonathan simply because you’re a mumu. The whole world knows what Deby is saying is true

    • vicky

      Yahaya you are the most insane person I have ever come across in my life. If Jonathan is the best president Nigeria ever had, then the country Nigeria is doomed.
