Buhari, Jonathan not fit to rule Nigeria, says Borno cleric who exposed N7b bribe to CAN

The Borno-based cleric who accused the Christian Association of Nigeria of collecting N7 billion bribe from President Goodluck Jonathan, on Tuesday, lambasted both Mr. Jonathan and the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Muhammadu Buhari.

The pastor, Kallamu Dikwa, while reiterating his accusation against CAN during a Press Conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists correspondent chapel, Kaduna, also said Mr. Jonathan failed to tackle corruption and insecurity as President and that Mr. Buhari is not the right person for Nigeria.

Mr. Dikwa, who is the Pastor of Ekilisiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria in Maiduguri and the Chief Executive Officer​ ​of Voice of Northern Christian Movement, stormed the correspondent chapel secretariat with ​a ​42-page document to support his claim against CAN, Mr. Jonathan and Mr. Buhari.

“Buhari has incited youth because of his utterances in 2003 and 2011. I am praying that God will stop both Buhari and Jonathan and bring someone out.

“God has not revealed anyone to me and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is also not good. Governor Rochas Okorocha and Governor Musa Kwankwaso could have been better candidates if they had the chance because they have actually worked for their States,” he said.

The Pastor said he is unruffled by death threats he frequently receives because of his insistence that a N7b bribe was paid to CAN by the President. He said “I was at a time invited by the SSS​”​.

“I don’t work for anybody whether President Jonathan or Gen Buhari. The Presidency knows me since when I started publishing about Boko Haram in 2010.

“I stand for righteousness and fighting for the life of the people and we must stand up to defend the people. This stand has made the national body of CAN to deny ever knowing me as a member.

The General Secretary of CAN said I am not a pastor. Those saying they do not know me as a pastor are telling lies and I am here also with copy of my certificate from All Nation for Christ Bible Institute International, Benin City,” he said.

“My first disagreement with CAN was because of my vehement protest on the receipt of 50 thousand US dollars by Borno State CAN for Boko Haram victims by Nigerians in USA which was not shared to the victims of the insurgency,” he alleged.

    Kallamu (Musa) Dikwa is confused because there are two serious contending candidates for the election, President Jonathan whom he claimed bribed CAN with N7 billion for Christians to support him, and brought evidence to buttress his claim, and for General Muhammed Buhari, incitement on 2003 and 2007 election riots without a proof to support his claim. Dikwa is a leader now in the Church he knows how a leader can incite his followers either in the Labour Union or in places of worship, more common today Nigeria. There are leaders who out of love by the common man and youth do everything without the knowledge of the leader but seemingly as evidence of the leader being cheated by the system. Mahamtha Ghandi, Mathew Luther King Jr. and many more, their work was for the common man even though they were not in politics because of environmental handicap during their period. Ghandi, brutal British Administration and King Jr, races regimen which disenfranches blacks in America, the fruit of King’s Jr struggle was the election of President Obama. General Muhammed Buhari, popularly referred to as the masses General. In your town Maiduguri when GMB visited for campaign, did you hear of an elderly man running behind GMB car’s, the General was watching him until he fell down, stood up and then the General told his driver to stop where he called the old man to find out the purpose of this over zealous chasing. The old man said he did not know where to send his contribution for the General’s campaign, he therefore handed N2,000 as his contribution. He prayed for the General to win the election with God Grace. These are the people supporting GMB not donating public funds to interest Groups like CAN. Whom do you think would feel bad if either failed to win the election? GMB is a better candidate, Kallamu if you are to be sincere to your self and your communities, forget the threat made to you by CAN. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

  • Awarawa

    APC were busy praising this pastor when he accused CAN of collection a bribe. Now that he accuses Buhari of orchestrating the killings of innocent Nigerians in the north, they went on overdrive….

    • Jona Hari

      Like the guy above!
      I dey laff ooo!

  • Citizen

    what shall we do now since in reality we must vote one of them, shall we drink engine oil and die? this thing you are preaching is anarchy and mediocrity

  • Mr. Abdin

    We hope the pastor will help us pray for change in the polity.

    With the way people crave for cheap popularity in Nigeria today,it wo’t be a surprise if tomorrow someone comes up with his own version of a story that Shekau lives in his (the person saying it) house and has already concluded plans on how to be sworn in as the next president of Nigeria.
    Talking of 12 and 7 billion naira bribe from whoever to the religious bodies is nothing new. If the said Pastor did share from that of CAN how could he have known what happened? Or dis he also share from the twelve billion given to JNI as he said? And if he did then can he be called a pastor? But if not,who among the members of JNI shared the supposed facts with him? There are several questions that need answers from pastor Dikwa

    The real news is this – Jonathan have lost the election and this is why – Nigerians do not want to be slaves in their own country, and this pastor has one vote, if indeed he is going to vote. We all will bring in change by voting massively for Buhari

    Why? read on –

    Back of the envelope calculations puts it at about $200billion that have been stolen, shared or misappropriated in the past 4 years – through grand theft of oil, unmerited sale of oil, unauthorized subsidy payments, depletion of natural reserve, un-collected revenues through loopholes.

    One Aspect. President Jonathan have personally supervised the grand theft, through two contracts financed with tax payers money, since January 2012 (possibly fall of 2011) of 400,000 barrels of oil per day by those he hand-picked to safeguard the supply lines against theft. According to Soludo: “First, you (Finance Minister, Okonjo-Iweala) admit that ‘oil theft’ has reduced oil output from the average 2.3 – 2.4 million barrels per day to 1.95 mpd (meaning that at least 350,000 to 450,000 barrels per day are being ‘stolen’). On the average of 400,000 per day and the oil prices over the past four years, it comes to about $60bn ‘stolen’ in just four years.

    – This is done through two 2 contracts that Jonathan signed to rebel leaders from his tribe.

    These are the 2 contracts by the Jonathan administration that is a major feed to the monster bedevilling Nigeria and turning it into a failed state, and a personal estate of King Jonathan, it was fall 2011 & 2012 time frame – widely reported by Wall Street Journal and major newspapers in Nigeria – just google it – I like the composition in the piece titled, Help, This Nigerian State Is Failing By Ayobami Oyalowo:

    ”In August, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) broke some disturbing news about Nigeria. It was reported that some ex-militants in the Niger Delta had been paid about N6.32billion within the past one year by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Yes, for the ‘noble’ service of providing security against vandals for the Corporation’s oil pipeline network. Imagine! The breakdown, as outlined by WSJ, is this:

    Chief Government Ekpumopolo (alias Tompolo), Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, ‘General’ Ebikabowei Victor Ben (Boyloaf) and ‘General’ Ateke Tom were respectively paid N5.1 billion, N1.44 billion, N608 million and N608 million yearly by the state-owned NNPC, as ‘protection money’ to guard the pipelines they once attacked.

    As if that was not enough an insult on the collective intelligence of Nigerians, earlier in the year the Federal Government awarded a contract worth $103.4million (over N15billion) to the Global West Vessel Specialist Limited (GWVSL) – a firm widely believed to be owned by Tompolo to supply 20 vessels for the use of the nation’s military authorities to secure the waterways. Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Ziadeke Akpobolokemi, had last year sent a memo titled, “Award of Contract for the Strategic Concessioning Partnership with NIMASA to Provide Platforms for Tracking Ships and Cargoes, Enforce Regulatory Compliance and Surveillance Of The Entire Nigerian Maritime Domain,” to President Goodluck Jonathan.

    In considering the memo, President Goodluck Jonathan and Akpobolokemi chose GWVSL as the preferred company for the 10-year concession agreement, renewable for two terms of five years each. Jonathan, in a memo dated 9th November, 2011, with reference number PRES/99/MT/61, approved Akpobolokemi’s memo, which the Federal Executive Council rubber-stamped on 5th January, 2012. According to Akpobolokemi, GWVSL “will provide platforms for effective policing of Nigeria’s maritime domain and ensure compliance with international maritime conventions on vessels and ships voyaging the country’s waters”. NIMASA maintains that the concessionaire would help the Federal Government to enforce the sabotage law and collect levies on its behalf. This, in a country that still maintains a statutory Naval force, and without a track record for GWVSL?

    From the above, the current occupant of the presidential villa showed where his loyalty lies…rather than train the military, he equipped criminals and vandals who had taken up arms against the state. No wonder so much arms and ammunition have found their way into Nigeria and our country has now become one gigantic human abattoir where someone is killed on an average of an hour, daily. Between January to May 2014 it has been estimated that over 1,500 people have been mindlessly cut down by terrorists and blood thirsty killers.
