Boko Haram: PDP chieftain blasts Ngilari, Boni Haruna, others over support for Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Adamawa State, Umar Ardo, has blasted citizens of the state campaigning for President Goodluck Jonathan while their villages and hometowns remain under Boko Haram’s control.

Mr. Ardo gave reasons why Mr. Jonathan’s campaigners would not be able to vote in the 2015 general elections. He said all the PDP chieftains showing support for Jonathan’s re-election ambition had been disenfranchised following the takeover of their constituencies by the Boko Haram terrorist group.

“For instance, Governor Bala Ngilari, Alhaji Hassan Adamu, Hajiya Zainab Maina, Mr. Boni Haruna and Ahmad Umaru Fintiri, who were all at the Eagles Square for Mr. President’s declaration, cannot vote as their polling units are all under the Boko Haram caliphate,” Mr. Ardo said. “Instead of them to concern themselves with the liberation of their home towns and working towards re-joining Nigeria, they are busy advocating about elections in which they have no votes.”

He said Mr. Jonathan was “unrealistic” in his approach to issues.

“Our people are forced to re-think their allegiance to the government of Nigeria,” he said. “To us, this is what Jonathan’s presidency means in Adamawa State. Under this circumstance, how can we think of election?”

An indigene of Madagali Local Government which was recently captured by Boko Haram, Umar Duhu, said government was not serious enough to re-capture towns and villages taken over by Boko Haram in Adamawa.

He noted that soldiers often fled their duty posts whenever Boko Haram insurgents attacked.

“How do you expect us to vote for a failed president?” he asked. “Those that are campaigning for him should re-think and bury their heads in shame. I believe that the government or soldiers are aiding the annexation of many towns and villages as I cannot understand why they always leave their duty posts and leave the insurgents to overtake our towns.

“The primary responsibility of the soldiers is to defend Nigeria from external aggression but it seems they have failed to discharge the onerous responsibilities leaving vast territories to be captured on a platter of gold. I am very sad about how the insurgents captured Mubi without any fight from the soldiers which exerted the belief that the soldiers are playing double games in the whole saga.”

Mr. Duhu urged the people to take more action towards enhancing their security. He said mobilizing local hunters and Civilian JTF was a step in the right direction, adding that he was ready to contribute financially to maintaining security.

Another indigene of Adamawa North, which is currently controlled by Boko Haram, Ahmed Sajoh, said it was shocking that while local hunters and Civilian JTF pursued the insurgents, the fleeing insurgents in turn pursued soldiers. He said it was easy for the insurgents to settle in Hong and Gombi local governments because the soldiers had fled those areas.

Mr. Sajoh questioned the soldiers for leaving their duty posts few hours before towns and villages were captured by the insurgents. 

“Let them dare to come and campaign and witness the people’s anger,” Mr. Sajoh said.

      • PROF

        Good luck to you and the clowns .lol

        • Spoken word

          I dont need Good Luck in my life. dont believe in luck. If you work hard you get your just rewards. But if you focus on women, stealing and drinking ogogoro you know what you will get. The result is what we are all suffering now.

      • Otile

        Are you therefore going to hang yourself when Jonah crushes Imam Buhari again?

        • Primus

          May God run your life the way GEJ is running Nigeria, can you say amen pls?

          • Otile

            What are you trying to say?

        • Spoken word

          How can I hang myself for someone so pathetic. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that with millions of nigerians it is Jona we could end up with.obviously our current leaders are not the country’s first eleven.I just feel sorry for the millions of Nigerians that have remained impoverish over the last 4 years.

          • Otile

            Blame the past administrations more for they dug the hole.

          • Spoken word

            This is such a cop out.With people like you nigeria will always be in a hole because GEJ will never take responsibility for the present and blame everything on the past.if he cannot improve our lives he should leave the office for someone that can.

      • sharp shape

        Lazy man go get a job! Sitting at home and talking rubbish won’t cut it! Roaches will be exterminated! Insha Allah GEJ for now then the dissolution of this British fraud! Rubbish

  • JI

    This man is working along with the script written in 2011 to ensure Jonathan is abandoned by all. afterall, the essence of heightening the insurgency is to ensure Jonathan does not win another election. unfortunately, for Boko Haram sponsors, the more they engage in destruction of churches, the more resolute voters are to support Jonathan.

    Shame to bad people

    • clairvoyance

      Did u just write support in ur post, who is gonna support a sinking man. Ardo stated the obvious.

      • emmanuel

        I will remind you two days after the Presidential election in 2015. By which time you would have changed your Alias.

        Obvious ko obvious ni!

        JI, Jonathan for sure has my vote. My Brthren from Kaduna, Plateau and Bornu I relate with know were their vote is going – GEJ

      • Otile

        Are you therefore going to hang yourself when Great Jonah crushes Imam Buhari again?

        • Ade

          Satanc Pastor Otile, you are a religious bigot and fanatic. A disgrace to humanity at large. If you had a chance, you would be worse than Imam shekau, the leader of boko haram. You reason just like him.

          • Otile

            That is your opinion. I am a good Christian man. I cannot behead anybody or plot a coup like your masters Imam Shekau and Buhari are doing.

      • sharp shape

        Then form your own caliphate or janjawred republic! Must we be together as a country? Nonsense

  • Frank Bassey

    Where were you when the seen of BH was planted in 2002 and germinated 10 years after, when GEJ assumed office? Is GEJ also responsible for the Fulani Herdsmen ferocious attack on innocent citizens? If you are one of those who believe that planting and fueling BH is a way to return power to the North, you have failed.

    • kcee

      Etubom Frank. In a proper Country or Community. Once you pay your Tax. You have the right to question the Government on Security, Water, Electricity, Health and Infrastructure. Obama travels to Middle East unannounced to visit Soldiers and check on their welfare. Our Own GEJ cannot even go close to Maiduguri to encourage the soldiers. Why did he accept to be The Commander In Chief of the Arm Forces. That title comes with responsibility of defending our Great Nation whether it is in Otuoke, Badagri or Bama.

  • Joe

    Ngilari and Boni Haruna are weightless politicians. With the support BH is getting from Aso Rock, our people cannot and will vote out and cast out Jonathan in 2015.

    • Otile

      He does not need your vote to hand a staggering defeat to your master Imam Buhari.

      • Joe

        I would rather vote Asari Dokubo than Jonathan if we insisted that Ijaw man should rule for the next four years to complete Jonathan’s tenure. If it were Asari that is the C-N-C of the federal republic, I believe he could not allow BH to terrorize us like this.

        • Hassan Garga

          ……….. or why wont they support Gov. Akpabio for 2015, who is currently performing magic in Akwa Ibom State

  • favourtalk

    I’m happy someone is thinking well in adamawa, what a pity that PDP candidates are only after themselves and nothing for the people of adamawa. We need a change and better people for the transformation of nigeria

  • Ananas_yolawa.

    Pls, every reasonable commentator should stop replying to any person that does not care for these country.
    In Nigeria, any person that support these worst government ever produced by these country, fell in one of these category.
    1. He is benefiting from the stole billion of $, either through himself or his sponsored.
    2. He is being paid by some corrupt elite.
    3. He is mad (he can’t diffriantiant btwen what is good or bad for these country).
    May Allah save us from the time-bomb that GEJ plant for these country, All say ameen.

    • sharp shape

      You are a wasted bullet ! Rubbish
