Boko Haram’s god is ‘Satan’ — Tinubu

Bola Tinubu

A national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has condemned Friday’s terrorist attack on a mosque in Kano describing the perpetrators as “godless people”.

In a statement in Lagos, Sunday, Mr. Tinubu said that numerous attacks by Boko Haram on innocent people demonstrate how heinous and debased the group and those who sponsor it have become.

“So depraved, they have become heartless and filled with enmity against all that is good and proper. This was not the act of human beings,” said Mr. Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor.

“These attacks could only have come from the hands of those who do not know God or Serve God. This is the act of godless people.”

More than 100 people died and hundreds more injured after multiple explosions ripped through the Kano Central Mosque, near the Emir’s palace, Muslim faithful prepared Jumaat prayers.

The blasts occurred as the Chief Imam of the mosque, Sani Zahradeen, was about to start the prayers.

Mr. Tinubu said that the explosion was the handiwork of evil forces propelled by wickedness.

“No reason can be found for what was done except that BH (Boko Haram) has once again shown its lust for innocent blood and its disdain for life peacefully lived. Boko Haram killed people praying to God because the god of Boko Haram is Satan himself.

“Boko Haram seeks to scare and intimidate Christian and Muslim alike through wanton destruction. They may attack us but never shall this evil force subdue us. Christian and Muslim must stand arm-in-arm to face down this terrorist onslaught.”

The APC had postponed its House of Assembly primaries earlier slated for December 1 by 24 hours to sympathise with victims of the attack.

Mr. Tinubu urged Nigerians not to allow the activity of the terrorist group from creating hate and divisions among them.

“Nigeria can and will defeat this terrorist machine and those behind it. We have no other home. We have no other choice.”

      And Allah said to attack muslims while they are praying to him in the mosque. Bravo! Brainless tosser!

    Bola Tinubu: Is APC an Islamist party – yes, or, no?

    All Progressives Congress [APC] and Boko Haram are one and the same.
    They are united in the evil to exclude Christians from top government posts.
    Boko Haram does so by killing whilst APC does the same by Muslims-only policy.

    Firstly, the Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] which last year morphed as APC,
    has NEVER presented a Christian as its governorship candidate in Yorubaland.
    So, the question is, why did APC never do so? Alhaji Lai Mohammed –
    the APC Spokesman – said it is because APC chooses its candidates ‘on merits’.

    So, what does Lai Mohammed’s explanation mean? Very simple, it means
    as far as APC is concerned, Yoruba Christians have no merits to hold
    top posts unless they are appointed either as assistants to Muslim overlords,
    or, as Commissioners taking instructions from a Muslim governor.

    Fact two: APC was formed with 100% Muslim national executives and registered
    with the National Electoral Commission [INEC] as such. What does this second fact mean?
    Very simple, it means morning shows the day. Not only does APC deem Yoruba Christians
    useless, the APC also by starting out with 100% Muslims as interim national executives,
    invariably deems all Christians in Nigeria as worthless.

    In the light of these two clear facts the next logical question is this: “What is an Islamist Party?”
    Very simple – again. An Islamist Party is an association registered as a political party
    but which internally decides the question of ‘merits’ for its members based solely on Islam,
    by pre-judging every non-Muslim; and in particular a Christian, as un-qualified for top government
    position on its party platform. Therefore, is APC an Islamic Party? The answer is, yes!

      @ Taire:

      Fantastic analysis! APC is an illicit organization – full of Alhajis – signifying nothing.

      The APC Jihadists have even come again in Lagos. They’ve lined up another set of Alhajis
      for naive Christians to choose one.

      The list of Muslim Mujahedeens on APC platform seeking to replace Alhaji Raji Fashola is as follows:

      • Alhaji Ganiyu Solomon

      • Alhaji Olasupo Shasore

      • Alhaji Femi Hamzat

      • Alhaji Adeyemi Ikuforiji

      And so on and so forth but with Leke Pitan and one Mr. Ambode thrown in as Christians
      just to make the rabid Islamism look less brazen in Lagos state APC party.

      So you don’t care whether those candidates are qualified or not as long as they are muslims it is an agenda? So far the so called “muslim” candidates they have presented have they not delivered? Is tinubus wife not a christian? Shouldn’t that “deem her useless” ? As for me, I don’t care where the next president comes from or which religion he adheres to, for example Rochas or Amaechi would get my vote. As long as that manky president of yours doesn’t win.

      • Segun Cole

        But wait first, Todocapista,

        Just say one multi-religious country that was under armed attack by Muslim Jihadists, like Nigeria today,
        where people there rushed to the polls to vote en masse for an Islamist party, like APC, as the solution.

        • blueeyedkitten

          so why is APC bombing their own states? you people should start using your common sense. or is common sense no longer common again?

        • Todocampista

          The fact that you refer to boko haram militants as muslims after they masscred over a hundred worshipping muslims just few days ago is insulting.

    • FDEE

      LIAR LIAR! John Kayode Fayemi is a Christian. Please stop using religion to divide Nigerians. Thank you.

      • Fari

        Alhaji Kayode Fayemi – the waterbed governor of Ekiti state – is a good Muslim, please!

    • blueeyedkitten

      you’re surely from the presidency. your lies would come to an end in 2015, God willing.

    • blueeyedkitten

      why are you dwelling in yorubaland? is APC/ACN a yoruba party? by the way, adams oshiomhole is a christian.

    • Kolawole Obafemi

      So,the former gov of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi is a Muslim!! Thanks for the information

  • emmanuel

    Tinubu lied again.

    Your prophet Mohammed ordered them to kill christians and those who support christians. Sanusi ordered people to fight against Boko Haram, while forgetting that someone from CBN once funded them with FG money until the table turned.

    The implication of Sanusi’s statement in Islam is that he support the infidels against Mohammeds people, as such he must be killed with them or taught a bitter lesson. Yet Sa’ad Abubakar dey open im mouth say na state of Emegency approval cuase am.

      your head. When you fix your head then we can have a reasonable discussion.

    • Todocampista

      What he’s writing doesn’t even make sense, This guy is clearly as mad as a bag of ferrets!

    • concernedcitizen2014

      Oga confusionist. The Muslims in Dubai, Quatar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, Morocco, Senegal, Gambia, Yorubaland and other peaceful countries also hold the Honourable Prophet Muhammed in high esteem. They live and work peaceably with Christians. What do you want? A religious war for what? To die, to lose our loved ones for these adulterous, greedy, selfish and wicked politicians.
