Dasuki’s call for postponement of February polls puerile

Sambo Dasuki formal National Security Adviser

The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) is outraged over the statement made by the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, at the London think-tank, Chatham House, calling for the postponement of the February 2015 scheduled election.

We are outraged because the reason he adduced is puerile, bare face lie and a dummy meant to deceive the international community, portray Nigeria in bad light and scuttle regime change.

CNPP challenges Dasuki to tell the world where the 30 million Permanent Voters Cards (PVC) he bandied is located; for without holding brief for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), it is common knowledge that over 60% PVCs have been collected nationwide, by anxious Nigerians who earnestly yearn for regime change.

CNPP is worried that the NSA has joined some anti-democrats and less than patriotic groups like the Pastor Ayo Oristejafor brand of Christian Association of Nigeria, the Ijaw Youth Council, Federation of Middle People, and Ohaneze Youth Council to plant land mines to scuttle our fledgling democracy.

Dasuki’s statement clearly exposed his gross incompetence on his primary mandate to secure the country; hence the Boko Haram insurgents escalated since his appointment on 22nd June, 2012.

The NSA should tell the world what happened to the billions budgeted for defence in the past three years under his watch, since he has turned the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) into procurement agency of the Ministry of Defence.

Our understanding is that elongation of President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure, automatically elongates that of Dasuki’s less than successful tenure.

A man who deliberately abandoned the late General Andrew Azazi’s concept, his predecessor that Boko Haram insurgents are located in the forest and should be fought with Isreali Satellite Images, Drones and modern equipment.

Had Dasuki adopted the Azazi concept it could have been very easy to use satellite images to recapture the Chibok girls few days after their unfortunate abduction.

Is it not a paradox that an NSA who procures equipment via the black market is condemning those who insist that the Nigeria Armed Forces is under equipped and under funded?

Is it not corruption under Dasuki’s watch, one of the reasons that made the Americans to stop supplying vital military equipment to Nigeria?

In sum, we call on Dasuki to apologise to Nigerians for his anti-democratic tenure elongation canvas and for calling our soldiers he under equipped cowards

    His father is a rouge and so is the son. Selfishness runs in their blood.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    It is this write-up that is puerile. The polls ought to be postponed so that eligible voters can claim their PVCs.

  • Dumbo

    Some of those deceiving GEJ. No wonder Abacha dealt with your father. Full of insincerity. As your boss is preparing to pack to Otuoke, hope you have also started packing yours to Sokoto.

    What is the intendment Prof. Attahiru Jega concerning the forthcoming general election ? I ask this because, there are over 6 Million Easterners (4 Million of them Igbos) who fled from the North owing to the killings by Sharia agents – Boko Haram. While Prof. is much more interested in catering to the IDPs in camps who are Northerners that have no other place to go than to remain in their indigenous territories, Jega has bluntly refused to address the concern and interest of those 6 Million Easterners who fled from the North. In one State alone (Borno State) we read that Jega is making a provision of over 900,000 PVCs available for the IDPs; there is no doubt whatsoever that these 900,000 is inclusive of those Easterners who have fled Borno State. It is obvious now that there is no way the PVCs will get to these fleeing Easterners at the moment. But these 6 Million Easterners are equally citizens of Nigerian and should vote in this election, Jega must devise a means to cater for them if he is honest of his intentions concerning the forthcoming elections.
