Jonathan responsible for escalation in Boko Haram insurgency

Osita Okechukwu

The spokesperson of All Progressives Congress, South East zone, Osita Okechukwu, on Sunday said President Goodluck Jonathan is responsible for the escalation of Boko Haram insurgency.

Mr. Okechukwu made the allegation, Sunday, at Eke in Udi local government area during the burial of one Godwin Aniakor, said to have died from complicated health issues, following his displacement from Biu, Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents.

He said Mr. Jonathan’s last week’s visit to Borno State has got nothing to do with the horrendous sorrows of Nigerians, arguing the presidential visit was election-motivated.

“What has that got to do with the death of our kinsman and the horrendous sorrow of millions of Nigerians? His visit is too little too late. I personally challenge Mr. President to tell Nigerians why he didn’t muster the political will to chase away the Boko Haram from the onset?

“One sees the visit of President Jonathan to Maiduguri as election motivated. Otherwise how can it take the C-in-C years to come to terms with such important show-concern visit?”

Speaking further, Mr. Okechukwu said “Methinks Nigerians should hold President Jonathan culpable for the quantum escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency, senseless killings and wanton displacement of people. For his failure to listen to elder statesmen like Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and host of others and hence the under equipment, under funding and low morale of the military”.

Lamenting the agony of his kith, Igbos and other Nigerians displaced by the insurgency, he said, “My pain is that many Igbos and indeed bulk of refugees dotting the whole country are in agony and excruciating pains following their dislocation from their abode.

“How do you feel if you are my master Major General Anthony Haladu Hananiya (rtd) whose house and the entire Hong village, in Adamawa State was razed by Boko Haram fire? I am at a loss why a C-in-C allowed such carnage to escalate?”

    brainless Ibo man–thinks Nigerians are fools with his haggard looks–a vote for APC is a vote for boko haram

    • Naira

      Useless Igbo boy. A vote for PDP is a direct vote for Shekau aka Ali Modu Sherriff.

      • George

        A vote for Buhari is a vote for BOKO HARAM COMMANDER

    • Naija youth

      your concern is his haggard looks……. but trust at his age, he is smarter and more educationally qualified than you are! If APC is Boko haram and our President can not do anything to them, is he not a weak president?

      • George

        If he is qualified let him contest

      Tyson- you may have a point, but cursing someone because of his ethnicity is one of the cancers affecting our country. However on the point of Boko Haram someone recently said on this site that the Nigerian army was the best in the world and that they just lacked equipment. That was so laughable it made my stomach hurt ! Try telling that to the USA, British or Israeli military. Nigerian army cannot defeat rag tag Boko Haram and some deluded people think we have the best army in the world. The only thing we are best in the world at is…. corruption.

  • Frank Bassey

    But this is not true and you know it. BH is the brainchild of Northern Islamic leaders in collaboration with APC

    • Mr. Abdin

      Are you sure of what you are saying? Which side of the country are you staying.

      • George

        Where you born in Morroco

  • concerned9ja

    GEJ doesn’t give a damn even if the whole of the country is overrun by BH.

  • Yusuf

    his re-election is more important than the 170million Nigerians minus himself, I am sure he will be very happy to live alone in Nigeria and call himself president

  • Dapostle007

    Clueless,shameless government.. the time for the anticipated change is now… a new governance for a new result.. vote GMB/OSINBAJO for federal…
