APC demands Jonathan’s resignation; accuses President of allowing Boko Haram to fester

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said President Goodluck Jonathan bears a huge moral responsibility that will haunt him for a long time to come for deliberately allowing the Boko Haram insurgency to fester, leading to the deaths of over 15,000 Nigerians and the displacement of over 3 million others in the past six years.

In a statement issued in London on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party also hailed the military for the successes it has recorded in the battle against Boko Haram in recent times, saying the string of victories confirms the party’s stand that the Nigerian military can hold its own anywhere and anytime, if provided with the necessary equipment and if the morale of the troops is not undermined.

It said by his own admission that he and his team “underrated the capacity of Boko Haram”, President Goodluck Jonathan has finally owned up to his globally-acknowledged incompetence, a development which, in truly democratic societies, should be part of a statement of resignation by a leader whose terrible error of judgement has caused so many deaths and inflicted so much pain and sorrow on his compatriots.

APC said the truth is that President Jonathan deliberately allowed the Boko Haram crisis to fester because he and his team saw it as their trump card for winning re-election in 2015 by currying local and global sectarian sympathy with a Muslim-group-killing-Christians narrative that totally distorts the fact that Boko Haram is a band of marauders who have no consideration for ethnicity, regionalism, religion or any other thing beyond their mad disposition to terror.

The party said the marauders are equal-opportunity killers who went after Christians, Muslims, northerners, southerners, men, women, the old, the young, the rich and the poor.

It recalled that the APC had raised the alarm on many occasions, including during an appearance at the British Parliament in 2014 when the party’s spokesman, Lai Mohammed, said the PDP and President Jonathan were using the Boko Haram crisis as a trump card to retain power in 2015.

”Is it not curious that the same President who has stood by while Boko Haram decimates a whole section of the country over the past six years has suddenly realized there is something he could do to crush the sect in six weeks? Is it not curious that a military that has been globally acknowledged for its successes in peacekeeping at regional and international levels has suddenly found itself unable to tackle a band of criminals? Is it not curious that the necessary fighting equipment that have not been made available to the military, despite the injection of over 32 billion US dollars into the defence and security sector since 2008, have suddenly become available?

”There are more questions to be asked: At what point did President Jonathan begin to have a clear idea that Boko Haram is a major threat to the very survival of our country? Was it after about 300 innocent girls were abducted from their school in Chibok or before? Was it after hundreds of boys were slaughtered in a secondary school in Buni Yadi or before? Or, was it before or after the Nyanya bomb blast that led to the deaths of hundreds of people? Just when did our President wake up to his primary responsibility?

”The truth is that after their Boko Haram-as-a-trump-card strategy blew up in their face and their electoral fortunes plummeted, the PDP-led Jonathan Administration came to the realization that a stepped-up campaign against the insurgents is needed to revive their electoral fortunes, hence they then decided to pep up the military and rally regional troops – the same suggestions from the opposition that the Administration has pointedly ignored over the years – to combat the terrorists.

”President Jonathan, who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, must take responsibility for the monumental cost, whether of his incompetence or his political strategy-gone-awry or both, apologize to the nation and immediately back down from seeking re-election. The President must not be allowed to profit from an error of judgement that has cost 15,000 lives, forced over 3 million out of their homes and cost the taxpayers 32.88 billion US dollars,” APC said.

The party also expressed concern at the efforts of the Jonathan Administration to make Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau look invincible, with the President’s statement that Shekau will be caught before the elections.

”It is no longer news that the authorities have gleefully announced the killing of Shekau at least twice in the past, with the picture of the supposedly-dead Boko Haram leader widely circulated in the social and traditional media. That raises the question as to which Shekau is to be captured. Or are we to believe the stories making the rounds that the government plans to capture a ‘Shekau’ who will then be used to implicate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari as a sponsor of the sect, just to pull the brakes on his runaway acceptance by Nigerians?” it queried.

APC said while Nigerians will undoubtedly be happy and relieved to see the end of Boko Haram, they must be wondering what would have happened if the plummeting electoral fortunes of President Jonathan had not forced his Administration to push for the six-week postponement of the general elections. They must also be wondering what would have happened if the elections have been scheduled for 2016, instead of 2015.

The party commended the long-suffering, gallant Nigerian soldiers and called on all Nigerians to continue to support them and the battle against insurgency.

”We urge Nigerians to continue to pray for the successes of our troops in the battle to rid Nigeria of insurgency and return our displaced citizens to their homeland. Peace and security in our land will provide the necessary environment for our party to implement the plan for the rebuilding and rehabilitation of our economy especially the major theatres of insurgency,” APC said.

  • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

    Is it that APC must always be in the news?
    Even at this crucial time?
    They are afraid of every success this country records and will find anything to blackmail it.
    After being afraid of the possible apprehension of Shekau and insinuating a link to Buhari they have now asked for resignation now that the country has been recording the best response to the threat due to obvious reasons. Is it that APC does not like Nigerian progress or what?

  • Awarawa

    APC are jittery of Shekau’s confession. They ridiculed the army and derided GEJ when the army asked for 6 weeks to allow them have their major operation with the new equipments and the cooperative francophone neighbors. Now that they feel the pulse of the nation in the winning streaks of the army over the terrorists, they want to flow along. I won’t be surprised if OBJ start saying the same thing tomorrow. They’ve ran out of campaign promises..

    • adekenny

      How can the president undermine boko haram for good 6 years!after they have killed so many people!GOD deliver nigeria from jonathan lead administration!

      • Debo

        You seriously think he would do that and allow most people to crucify him like it is happening now, it doesn’t make sense to me. The longetivity of BokoHaram equals to the demise of GEJ, how will he sponsor his own demise.

        • Fireman

          Gej himself said he underestimated Boko Haram…after 5 years…he should resign

  • Ja’e

    UP APC !! That’s the end of their plot by God willing, linking GMB with BH is unrational, unacceptable and inhuman !!

  • Godfrey Etokebe

    I am so glad that for the VERY FIRST TIME Lai Mohammed has not called my dear PRESIDENT CLUELESS, SENSELESS and INCOMPETENT. This goes to show that APC has finally succumb to the overwhelming support that GEJ and PDP are gathering from the Nigerian electorate all over Nigeria. For Your information Lai Mohammed, the last imposter called SHEKAU is in custody. He was caught dressed up like a woman and he is singing his confessions without being ask. Some of you APC stalwarts that has ran away to London, has no hiding Place. You will be repartriated by the British Authority to answer for Your involvement in BOKO HARAM atrocities!!!

    • TRUTH MASTER

      ”Globally-acknowledged incompetence” is as hard-hitting as cluelessness! Of course GEJ is clueless

      • Godfrey Etokebe

        APC has just exposed itself. How can you Call Nigeria’s CHURCHILL (PRESIDENT GEJ who is LEADING and WINNING the GLOBAL WAR against BOKO HARAM and its affiliates incompetent? APC and Lai Mohammed are therefore SENSELESS, CLUELESS and INTELLECTUALLY INCOMPETENT!!!

        • Fireman

          A global war against Boko Haram?…by commenting, you’ve exposed your lack of exposure

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            BOKO HARM is Connected With all the JIHADISTS in the world!!! READ PROPERLY!!!

  • adekenny

    By GOD grace nigeria will survive these suffering!may GOD exposed the blackmailers,may GOD deliver nigeria from the devil minded people! May GOD bless nigeria

    • julius oke

      Amen! May God bless you too abundantly.

  • the truth

    Lol are nigerians watching the game being played by this blood suckers. Who remembers when we were winning this war when buhari stated emphatically “any attack on boko haram is an attack on the north” who remembers how lie lie mohammed went as far as to new york to protest boko haram being labelled a terrorist organization, who remembers how the sultan and el rufai stated the north was being wiped out due to the attack on boko haram.
    Now with us winning the war this blood suckers who want power at all cost are claiming their is a conspiracy to implicate buhari by arresting shekau. My people shine your eyes boko and AFFEECEE are one, there is no illusion on that.

  • UYI111

    Another distraction from the diarea mouth of apc!! show your certificate gmb and your london hospital bed nr.

    This is to inform Nigerians that Satan has finally stepped down and handed over his title of FATHER OF LIES to lai muhammed and his APC gang. In his defeat speech, satan admitted that he nearly lost his name, Satan to APC, but in other to save face, he will dash APC the father of lies title, while he retains the title of satan, to be able to moderate them

    QUESTION:
    Still wondering why the bombs keep coming? The jobless & irresponsible Terrorist vampire politicians need to explain. Pollution in Ogoni land continues unabated as it is everywhere in the Niger Delta as the irresponsible environmental terrorist oil companies continue to decimate and threaten the existence of the Niger Delta nation…How much long will the Niger Delta tolerate Nigeria…How much more will Nigerians have to tolerate incessant acts of destruction from the terrorists of the North & its so called leaders who are obviously not seen to publicly condemn these demons?

    In Belgium, France, Egypt, Kenya, Germany, Australia…and now Czech Republic, the entire population including the opposition teams up with the Govt of the day to condemn and fight terrorists, but only in continent Nigeria will you find the exact opposite. Only an irredeemable mumu will believe that Nigeria will survive this. I pray with all my heart that the useless British arrangement breaks up into as many countries as possible so that we would be spared the pain of having to listen to demented reasoning and unscientific accusations from so called spokespersons.

  • Anene Mercy

    These APC criminals are so disconnected and disoriented. Now that the war is being won, u credit it to army when boko haram was rampaging u said the president was incompetent.

    Very disjointed party. APC is pure evil.

    • Fireman

      You obviously don’t have a good mastery of english…if you did then you’d know what pure evil is

  • Anene Mercy

    Why is APC angry that FG is winning this war. Their plan to use boko haram to win 2015 election has failed. Up GEJ

    • Abdul

      APC is not angry, we are only angry because Jonathan allowed over 15,000 Nigerians get killed by BH before steeping up counter operation. What has changed now? why did he have to wait till now?

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Jonathan should resign so that the sponsors of Boko Haram (APC) can attain power through the back door? Another senseless call by the desperados that make up APC.

    • Fireman

      Can you dispute this;

      “It said by his own admission that he and his team “underrated the capacity of Boko Haram”, President Goodluck Jonathan has finally owned up to his globally-acknowledged incompetence”

      If you can’t then keep quiet boy

  • Etang Chris

    Hahahaha, impeach who? Chaiiiiii, I can now believe that APC is not happy that FG is winning the war. Shame on them.

    Instead of APC to face rejection on March 28, they are afraid. Shame to them. They will face the same defeat like boko haram. Up GEJ.

    • Fireman

      A leader that admitted that Boko Haram got out of hand because he underestimated them?…Gej is being voted out in March 28…ce fini!

    • Idy

      Afraid of what?! I mean, I’m baffled by the stupidity of you pdpigs on here!! Nothing tangible up there!!

  • Debo

    The moment I heard about the success of the current military campaign ( if punch, PT and SR can report it, then it is true), I knew uncle Lai will come up with something like this, they are so predictable. In fact, it’s very difficult for me to believe that APC can be behind such a cohesive and effective insurgency like BokoHaram. They are just taking undue advantage of the incoherency of the incumbent. The truth is, they are not that good to put up such a show. At least and at last some progress is being made; kudos to those brave soldiers.

    • Fireman

      Debo shame on you…you need to keep an open mind when reading the Apc articles to fully understand, if you can’t then why bother reading them at all?…

      • Debo

        Hmnnn….. Tell me more.

    • Idy

      You sure don’t know what your saying, cos I really don’t see any sense in this!!! You’re just being biased about this, if its the token given to u by those pigs, then be wise

      • Debo

        I am not surprised at the direction your shallow mind is pushing you to think. Once someone has a differing opinion, you claim he has collected a token. Such ideas can only thrive in the mind sets of those that live by it. You sound like those European racist who chant like a monkey in a bid to call another a monkey. My question is who is monkier than the one who chants like a monkey.

    • “incoherency of the incumbent President Jonathan to do nothing in 6 years against Boko Haram, then suddenly want to destroy them in 6 weeks, bah?

  • Victor Gee

    The truth is gradually coming out. Yesterday APC said Jonathan is trying to create a fake Shekau, Today they said Jonathan should resign. What will they say tomorrow? Frustration.

    • Fireman

      Yes he should…after the death of 15 thousand Nigerians, your leader comes out to say he underestimated Boko Haram?…in other words, it was due to his error in judgement that the death toll went so high…

      In any decent system, he should have resigned since

      • Idy

        I mean, stating the obvious has become a crime to Pdpigs!! Evil party!!

    • Idy

      Ode!! Read the article!!

  • TRUTH MASTER

    They, PDP rats, rush here to make silly comments for a paltry 5,000 Naira each (per month) which is not even paid on time! Can’t any sensible person see the logic in the APC statement? Jonathan didn’t give a damn about Boko Haram until he realized he did not have the votes for his re-election. He forced a postponement and then decided to ginger up the battle. Yes, we want Boko Haram crushed. We also want PDP and the GEJ government crushed with the people’s votes. Jonathan can’t benefit from incompetence.

Let me tell you what’s hap’ning… The APC are making a case for Dumbo’s removal from Nigerian soil after Nigerians toss him from power.

        Never seen a tribe of witches and wizards, stone-cold manipulators of vulnerable Nigerians, as janjaweed APC, which only was reined in by Obasanjo’s cautionary advise when they were hell-bent on fielding a Muslim-Muslim ticket!

    This is politics carry too far. I can never take APC serious, never. It’s simply about grabbing power.

Surely APC has exposed itself as a party of miscreants. Lai Muhammed should be ashamed that he agreed to put his name on this press release. There are opposition in US and other countries they don’t revel in politics when the issue of national security is at stake. I will rather not vote than to be one of those who will put this misfortune called APC at the national level. There should be a limit and boundary to everything.

    It is strange that suddenly the jonathan adminstration now realize that they can defeat boko haram within 6weeks. What happened during jonathans 3years. Buhari is correct boko haram can be defeated within months.

    • Gaskiya

      What happened in the last three years was the purchase of equipment which are not gotten off the shelve, set back to the efforts to equip the arm forces by uncooperative western Nations and SA, non support of the battle on insurgency by opposition, sympathizing with and even shielding of boko haram members by northerners and APC elements and many more.
      What is happening in 6 weeks is the manifestation of the gains of FG in the last 3 years in the battle against insurgency despite all the setbacks.

        IMAGINE!!!!
        He charged at GEJ for failing to give red-carpet treatment to BH unlike ND militants!
        Buhari conspired with other northern elders to cook up allegations to the effect that the Nigerian military were brazen violators of human rights in their fight against BH; and that was the card they sold to the US upon which basis that country flatly refused to sell weapons to Nigeria, and also commandeered its allies, including the UK, Israel, South Africa, EU, to decline Nigeria’s request for weapons sale!

  • True

    APC is always looking for cheap popularity and playing to the gallery. How many APC members are in London now? And for what? Jamboree!!! Lai Muhammed was in Nigeria few days ago but he is having a nice time now in London. How many of those ranting for this ‘violence lovers’ can afford a ticket to London now or can approach Britain for a visa now? Britain is about big money in your account for visa. How many of APC e-rats can afford a holiday in London? But your messiahs/saints employers go there like visiting toilets. They are not in government now and you can imagine if they get there? They are surely mourning now that our army is winning considering that they have consistently attacked the army and they were called unprintable names in the past by the same APC recanting now.

    • PDP = IMPUNITY

      This is not about cheap popularity or playing to the gallery it is about political will of the present leadership to fight boko haram. The fight against boko haram by the government of the day is being motivated because of the need for pdp led government to score cheap political gain. Jonathan did not give a dam n about boko haram but now that electikns are around the corner now he suddenly gives a damn.

      • Gaskiya

        The first question that reverberated within the APC camp was: “how can the government do in six weeks what they could not do in six years?” Now that they’ve seen what can be done in six weeks or even less, they’ve changed their tunes. Their major campaign sing song, hinged on the politicization of insurgency has been deflated.They therefore need other lines of battle. So we’re even brazing up for even worse propaganda.
        They have suddenly forgotten that their presidential candidate asserted that any fight against boko haram is a fight against the North, thus slowing down the decision on the strategy that is eventually working today.
        They have suddenly forgotten that their presidential candidate and other top party members insisted on amnesty for boko haram. which was eventually explored by the FG, and refused, even mocked by boko haram, thus slowing down the battle.
        They have suddenly forgotten how the efforts of Government to secure equipment for the troops were frustrated by US and SA and others, to their (APC’s) delight.
        They have suddenly forgotten how they directed their members in the National Assembly to filibuster all executive bills including the ones seeking the confirmation of the Service Chiefs.
        Opposition is not a curse to a nation and APC must not make it so.
        Terrorism is a global phenomenon, but it is only in Nigeria that it has been reduced to propaganda in the name of opposition. May God deliver us from desperation for power by politicians!!

        • otapete

          Now , why did he not do this for 4 years. He was waiting for the north to annihilate themselves.What do you do ordinarily seeing 2 people in a fist cut do you walk away or try pacify them,Jonathan thinks they are nuisance neighbors. He is just realising that they have put petrol on his bed and the other is looking for a box matches, he is now truly worried.

    • Godfrey Etokebe

      SHEKAU is in the COOLER and he is SINGING VERY LOUD. THEY (APC) are RUNNING AWAY!!!

      • PDP = IMPUNITY

        PDP created fake shekau to discredit Buhari and APC. The truth will always prevail no matter what. Pdp is the association of desperados.

        • Godfrey Etokebe

          Why are they (APC) not in Nigeria campaigning? Are they going to win election(s) in London?
          APC (BOKO HARAM) don RUNAWAY to London!!!

          • PDP = IMPUNITY

            Your comment is hilarious laughable. Null and void infact basless.

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            I will rephrase and simplify my question:
            Explain to me why all APC stalwarts are in London instead of canvassing for votes in Nigeria?

      • SINGING THAT MODU SHERIFF, JONATHAN, IHEJIRIKA ARE BOKO HARAM SPONSORS.

        • Godfrey Etokebe

          Sheriff, Jonathan and Ihejirika are all in Nigeria campaigning for PDP. Those mentioned in SHEKAU’S song are all in LONDON and they are all APC stalwarts!!!!

          • You must know them because you are Shekau’s co-sponsor along with Sheriff, jonathan, Ihejirika.

    • bib

      Why don’t you just address al the points Mr Muhammad raised? Answer questions he asked ,if not for this forum, loud to yourself and see if as human being your heart does not break. Presidents in more civilized climes would have resigned since if they were in moreGEJ’s shoes. Pls don’t toe the line where your crooked heroes cannot. Just take the galivating GEJ is undertaking going to far apart churches every week with convoy of presidential jets all on tax payers money.

  • Fireman

    Ruling a nation is beyond Jonathan’s power…#Buhari2015

  • adnoy

    APC’ s position is correct on the issue. It is a shame that the pdp led fed govt only began to find solution to the menance of boko haram the very day presidential election was to hold

    • PDP = IMPUNITY

      So sad my brother after so much lives have been lost.

  • President Jonathan must have to resign having boxed himself into a corner now. His and his VP’s term run out on May 29, 2015. The statistics are starkly against his victory in the elections which he will lose. He can humbly bow out and hand over to Buhari or play spoil-game, delay and hand over to an unknown Senate President, maybe a new APC senator.Whichever way, he loses. The game plan of the APC is to make sure they produce the new Senate President.

    • PDP = IMPUNITY

      Pdp we fail. The so called cabals have started running away to other countries thwy are aware that jonathan can not win this election.

  • Wähala

    President Dumbo is an evil man…
    There are a 100 reasons for him to resign with apologies, but with every acceptance of guilty… comes Judicial redress!
    Dumbo must pay for his crimes against humanity, not just Nigerians. His insistence on power is because he knows his last bus stop is the ICC at Den Haag… The Hague! Left to me he’s a common criminal and a very dangerous psychopath, even Ghanaian Prof. Aiyettey recommended psychiatric confinement for the Clown Prince of Otuoke. Supervising the slaughter of 20,000 Nigerians, 3million in exile including even his CDS, fat Alex Badeh; jumping over massacre victims in Nyanya to go gulping ogogoro and dancing in Kano, partying after 57 sleeping school boys got their throats slit at night… and sadistically withdrawing troops to allow the kidnapping of hundreds of virgins in Chibok while his drum-wife mocked grieving families: Dumbo’s Sins are Mortal Sins… Unforgivable! Resign ke? Mba o. Nigerians have a few weeks more to resign and evict Dumbo from Aso Villa so another occupant can steer the Molue Bus called One Nigeria, One Journey… One Destination. Sai Buhari!

    • the truth

      stop venting here, u dont have your pvc so shut up. Go and tell your candidate to provide his safiticate. Do you remember when lie lie mohammed on the 19th of june 2012 went to new york on the agis of ac to canvass for boko haram not to be labelled a terrorist organization. You and i were here on this forum when for the first time we both agreed that military hardware was important, but apc fought against approving more money for new weapons, were u too young to know when buhari said an attack on boko haram is an attack on the north, were you blind when el rufai and ango mohammed said if gej decides or shows interest in the election there would be hell, is ango mohammed not a stunch apc fellow. Be patriotic, leave your arm chair and save enough money from your egunje work to travel back home and see for yourself, maybe join the brave men who are surrendering their lives for nigeria. u stay on your computer everyday to spew bs

      • Omotolaaraujo

        There was a boat load of money for the military that obviously never went to its purpose. It doesn’t matter how much money was thrown at the military, it never would have gotten to its destination.

  • APC na wa 4 o na,lie lie party.

  • warry

    May God have mercy on this Liar and APC. Is this the same party that said no to the money meant to buy equipment for the military? Is this the same party that said ‘An attack on Boko Haram is an attack against the North? This party has as ideology, lies,deceit,Half Truths,misinformation,Deceit,manipulations,hypocrisy,blackmail,repeated lies,etc. This old man is a shameless Liar. True to his name.

    • Uzoma John

      Just shut up. Compromised devil’s advocate. See the kind of life you are living. Jumping from one online forum to the other to spew lies upon lies for crumbs. You have mortgaged your life, the life of your children and children’s children for an inept, wicked, corrupt and inhuman Jonathan, who has been experimenting his failed political strategy with the lives of innocent Nigerians. The battle is not online, it is on the election day. March 28 is around the corner. Prepare yourself with the crumbs you have picked so far and get ready for exile with your paymasters. Anuohia.

      • Lammyz Joy

        Uzoma John….. I just said quietly that God should treat your life the way GEJ is treating Nigeria’s case! Say Amen because GEJ is the one that turn this country this way!

    • Omotolaaraujo

      You missed the whole point. This isn’t about the APC, it’s about the guy who didn’t do his job.

  • Omotolaaraujo

    Jona did his U-turn too late. Niger and the AU had to force it down his throat. Goodbye Jonathan.

  • godwin

    Using the term globally acknowledged incompetence about the office of the prez is clear evidence that Nigeria as a corporate entity is not on your agenda,but a selfish last to grab power at all cost, I thought an elderly man like Lai Muhammed would set good examples for the youth to follow,.expose in mistakes made by govt,propagate ur arguments but let the office of the prez be sacrosanct as that is what is done in saner climes

    • Moe

      “Using the term globally acknowledged incompetence” may just be what it is at face value.
      look it up, major publications in the western world feel this way with regards to GEJ’s administration.
      What do you expect when an internationally convicted criminal like alamieyeseigha is pardoned by GEJ’s administration?

      What do you expect when GEJ’s answer to corruption charges in his administration is the redefinition of corruption to exclude thievery ?
      While I feel it is distasteful for Lai to ‘air our underwear” in public, it does not take away from the fact that what he is saying is in fact, FACT!
      You are a well meaning Nigerian and I feel you…..perhaps after all these have settled, you may hear from me. Keep up the good fight.

    Once there is Bombing APC rush to condemn Jona. Once the army gain, APC keep silence.

  • godwin

    @moe the truth about life is that it is the rat in the house that informs the rat outside that their is some fish left unprotected within the house, I will not hold brief for Jonathan or Buhari as I consider it an insult to our collective intellect that these are the best we can throw up as a nation, my take on the matter is that the foreign media only started having that opinion after the opposition had used and said it endlessly and for that singular reason they have done this country a great disservice and I can never believe in their change as they are all the same. The Political class are the Main problem of the nation and not the Presidency alone. Are the senators or reps ready to take a pay cut from their unholy vulgar take home that is out of proportion with the economic reality on ground of a minimum wage of 18k, whilst a Senator pockets 194,000 dollars per month(basic plus allowances inclusive).whenever we are ready for even God would acknowledge us,for now we are jokers

  • godwin

    Reading thru most of our comments on social media it is obvious that we need urgent national re-orientation as a people as we have lost it totally as all the challenges we have had since 1959 are still apparent today; tribalism,nepotism,bandwagonism, untruth,mental fraud etc. May God help us seriously

  • Nelson David

    APC will stop at nothing just to bring President Jonathan down, Everyday they will come out with different method and style all in name to bring down mr. president.

    • blueeyedkitten

      what have they said that was not true?

      • abuasmau

        You jumped into it without reading my first post.

    • Patriotic Woman

      Me tooooh my brother. Is either Gov is not fighting bokO haram and when Gov fights book haram, then fake shekau, from fake shekau to Bed rest in UK . Now that the Nigerian army is winning the war, APC calls for Goodluck to resign. What exactly can APC and Buhari offer to Nigerians? PROPAGANDA, CONFUSION AND ANARCHY!. The tide has turned please, let them go and cure themselves and also use the opportunity to recover Buhari’s certificate from UK. We wish them goodluck. Surely GOODLUCK JONATHAN TILL 2019. GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!!

    • Murtala Aliyu

      Use your imagination and reason, are they really wrong?

  • Divine West

    The country belong to all of us not President Jonathan alone, even if he is our leader we need to protect this not just him. What you people doing to stop Boko Harm ?

  • blueeyedkitten

    this is a serious question to be asked: why are they suddenly fighting boko haram so vigorously now? kai, we no be mumus fa. no be my head person go take play table tennis o. am to sophisticated for that. this guys had their chance….since 2010; but they misused it. this is simply “ehu bayan hari”

  • Uncle Charlie

    Let Buhari be kicked out for perjury first lets see where that will lead

    • Patriotic Woman

      Not just that, let his health status and sudden trip to the UK be clarified. Then Buhari should remember to bring back a copy of his certificate from Cambridge because the white man knows how to keep record or did book haram bomb Cambridge office too in UK too. Ha ha ha ha , Nigerians are laughing. APC used book haram insurgence to make cheap point, as the army is finishing boko haram instead of commending their efforts they came up with fake shekau story. Now that they know the axe is almost falling on their leader, they are calling for GOODLUCK to resign, what a laugh! A beg Nigerians are no clowns! If APC can lie about simple media interview done in Abuja and claiming it was done in LONDON, what other lie or comedy will they not come up with. Is Buhari and co in UK to process Asylum status in case the tide turns against them? A beg President GOODLUCK JONATHAN SIDON TILL 2019, NO VAVANCY IN ASO ROCK. GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!!

  • What has APC done for the country to show they are ready to handle the reins of this country. Buhari had to wait for GEJ to put all the almajiri children in school before he sends them meagre meals. Is GEJ a Northerner?

  • chi ngobar

    We must resist all antics by the ruling PDP to lure us into voting for them again. They have failed us completely and must leave the stage. How on earth does Jona expect us to believe that he under-estimated Boko-Haram? What a president? God, Save us from these self-centred, wicked and heartless people

    • Patriotic Woman

      Go and die, enemy of progress and haters of Nigeria. Your game plan is up. Either you remain in Nigeria under Goodluck Jonathan or you walk away, bloody foreigners! Goodluck till 2019. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Verify from Military history or take a walk to the nearest Library around your neighborhood:FG does no business with the US or SA on Military hardwares.We simply don’t have the that kind of money or expertise to operate their helicopters.We need NOT go to them.The noise isn’t called for.
    The jaguar jets in our arsenal were from France.The only c130 transport planes manufactured from US can be acquired from other countries.We had those as far back as Obasanjo/Shagari era.

    We have always bought hardwares from the then USSR now Russia.Our Tanks have always been Russian.Nothing stops the FG from acquiring weapons from Russia,China,Belarus or even North Korea.The last helicopters in our arsenal was purchased from Russia by Danjuma during Obasanjo’s 1st term.

    Its laughable when young men say US or foreigners are blocking the FG.Was the civil war fought with US arms?Did we borrow a dime during the civil war?The Ukrainian President just visited UAE today to sign an agreement on weapons purchase.We are a sovereign nation and nothing stops us from making smart moves.We were producing most of our ammunition for the civil at the Defence Industries in Kaduna.Am sure most young men don’t know this fact.We have the capabilities to do this.APCs[Armoured Personnel Carriers] are manufactured in Ekiti.Trucks are produced in Anambra.Boots can be produced in Aba.Russia buys her boots from Finland.Osogbo steel can produce bulletproof vests,vehicles…..I mean we just need strong and passionate leadership.
