Jonathan politicizing Boko Haram, Chibok girls’ abduction — Senator

The Senator representing Nasarawa West senatorial district, Abdullahi Adamu, has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of playing politics with the lives of over 300 Chibok school girls abducted by Boko Haram nearly a year ago.

Speaking inn Keffi local government area of Nasarawa State, Mr. Adamu said that the federal government should put more effort at ensuring the release of the Chibok girls alive rather than dramatize the arrest of the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, for the purpose of the 2015 general elections.

Mr. Adamu said the federal government’s effort to divert the issue of the whereabouts of the Chibok girls has always hit the bricks because Nigerians refused to let it go.

“The issue of Chibok girls is just diversionary; they are taking the issue of Chibok girls as another thing Nigerians will forget. They think Nigerians will just forget, I am happy this is one thing they will not be able to bury because any attempt to bury it, it re -surfaces we want Chibok girls alive,” the lawmaker said.​

“The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, is taking Nigerians for granted too much. The same federal government and the service chiefs whom Jonathan is the commander-in-chief told us not once or twice that Shekau has been killed”.
“Nobody has come back to tell us Shekau is alive, but from nowhere now they want Shekau alive”.

Mr. Adamu claimed that the purported ploy to get Mr. Shekau alive by federal government is a diversionary plan to manufacture a fake Mr. Shekau that will be assembled by the Peoples Democratic Party led federal government to score a cheap popularity and try to associate him with the All Progressives Congress and its leaders.

“You see all along they have been trying to associate the APC leadership with Shekau and Boko Haram even though Boko Haram started in 2003 while the APC came into being in 2013. They are not ashamed to associate the APC, a completely new party for a new Nigeria with Shekau and Boko Haram just to give a dog a bad in other to hang it, this one two will also not fly”.

He said that federal government has been economical with the truth over the military operations in the fight against Boko Haram.
“The issue of bringing Shekau alive is only one of the many deceptive activities of the ruling party PDP”.

“Shekau is one person but we are talking of over 300 girls that were captured at different times because life is a valuable asset, my life, your life is the same and the only one greater, is the one that fears God.

    With the way these people are going about Shekau, Buhari knows something about the terrorist.

      If Buhari is in the know and the president is not in the know then the president should resign. it points to the fact that some people are more powerful than the president. A president of a country should be bold and fearless. A president should be daring and responsible not passing blames. A country where a president and its security outfits take a position of accusations and finger pointing while its citizens are being killed in thousands and displaced without single arrest is not worth living.

  • Awarawa

    The janjaweeds definable know something about Shekau and the guy would sing when captured. They’ve been busy preparing the people’s mind in case the guy sing. Each time FG said a Shekau is killed, it’s this evil party that first counter them that it is a fake Shekau they killed. God would judge these evil people.

    • SAM .A

      e-rat /creek monkey , you are free to write here & make yourself happy all u want. Government that claimed they have killed Shekau twice, displayed the Pic of dead body once, went ahead after and negotiated cease fire with the dead man that turn out to be fake . The credibility gulf has already been created in this Shekau/BK/ Govt palava . Only u and your cohorts will swallow the next bait hook,thread and sinker.The rest of us will use microscopic lenses to examine it

  • tyson

    his comments does not make sense one little bit———————–how is Jonathan using the Chibok girls for politics–would the capture of the girls not add to his electoral chances————there is no where in the books where Jonathan said unless shekau is captured alive elections would not hold—————-again————some shouléd try and reach out to these types of people——–what hope do we have with his likes in the senate-why is he scared of shekau being captured alive———–

    Dr. Dumbo is the evil psychopath behind this Boko Haram phenomenon, there’s no doubt on the minds of intelligent folks worldwide that his Govt. is actually using the war on terror for political gains. Yesterday, the Minister of State for Power, Mohammed Wakil, claimed he met with Chibok parents of the kidnapped girls. But the Director of Publicity, Kibaku Area Development, Dr. Allen Manasseh says…“Barrister Mohammed Wakil, the Minister of State for Power, was never in any meeting with any parent of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls. He met with some displaced people from his local government, Damboa… The entire Chibok people are planning a media briefing to set the record straight.” Who but an evil and callous criminal would exploit the plight of over 300 girls for political dividends? Lying thru his teeth at every turn. First claiming no girls were abducted, now claiming they’re doing everything possible to secure their release. First claiming Shekau is dead, now claiming he’s using the Chibok girls as human shield. JonaDaft is a pathological liar and a wicked Ijaw crook who went stealing our land in Abuja with his aging mother, both will end up in jail and his co-travelers will not be too far behind. Animals!

  • smart G

    We will recognize original shekau if he is captured.
    Let us not speculate who he will name as collaborators.
    The body language of APC speaks volumes.
    Let’s wait and see.
    I know he will also have audio and video evidence

  • Comfortkay

    This is 419 PDP government, What kind of game is this? Playing Politics all the time with human Life. It took the Nigerian President Jonathan about months to believe that 300 school girls were abducted. Now he acknowledge they are all pregnant and shekau will be arrested and parade around the world.
    This President needs good press advisers that will guide his funny utterance.

  • Nelson David

    This northern people knows how to stop this Boko haram but they chose not because President Jonathan is not from that region and are using it to attack him and his government.

  • Divine West

    Only God will save us from this greedy northerns, they know who these BH members are and they didn’t want to stop them because of their greedy nature.

  • Ndubuisi Chinedu

    Senator Abdullahi Adamu is talking nonsense. How can say such about mr. president when he is doing nothing to stop this insurgency.

  • Let Us Pray

    In November 2012,Islamic sect Boko Haram opted for dialogue with the Federal
    Government, picking former military leader Gen. Muhammadu Buhari as mediator.

    On march 2012, Buhari said, If what happened in 2011 should again
    happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked
    in blood. In 2013 Maj-Gen. Mohammadu Buhari,
    described the war against the Boko Haram sect as injustice against the North.on

  • Let Us Pray

    The move by Nigeria to join the Organization of Islamic Conference (O.I.C), initiated by Buhari and amplified by Babangida,
    also almost tore the nation apart. General Babangida, whose regime was welcomed because of his restoration of the freedom
    of speech after the days of Buhari/Idiagbon, shocked many Nigerians with this development. It was ironic that many of the
    key members of his government who were Christians claimed to be ignorant of such move

  • Let Us Pray

    It was Buhar who i said that he would make the country ungovernable if the 2011 presidential election did not favour him.
    **during the campaign, he said that if he lost, people should go for blood.
    **if there were those to be blamed for the insecurity in the country, the name of Buhari should top the list.
    **He doesn’t have any other interest in Nigeria but his ambition to rule.

  • Let Us Pray

    Although Babangida took the rap for Nigeria’s sneaky upgrade to full
    membership of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), according to
    a study on Nigeria funded by the US Defense Department in the early
    1990s, it was actually Buhari who without any regard whatsoever for the
    sensibilities of Nigerians of other faiths, submitted the application to
    upgrade Nigeria’s membership from the observer status it had enjoyed
    since the Gowon regime to full membership. The OIC’s review of the
    application was concluded after Babangida’s palace coup. Rather than
    reverse Buhari’s action, Babangida quietly allowed Nigeria’s new status
    as a full-fledged member of the OIC to stand. Buhari’s OIC action
    exposed him as a religious zealot, who will have no qualms in rousing
    and ginning up Sharia issues, quiescent for several years now, following
    its aggressive unveiling in Zamfara, where Buba Bello Jangebe’s wrist
    was amputated for stealing a cow, and Safiya Husseini was sentenced to
    die by stoning for adultery while her co-participant in the act was not
    prosecuted because he was male.

  • Let Us Pray

    In the run up to the 2011 general elections Buhari categorically said that Muslims should not vote for Christians and
    that Northerners should not vote for a Southerner

  • Let Us Pray

    Buhari is national leader of antagonists of Nigeria. This man could not
    be trusted with the affairs of the country. Always scheming, deceiving,
    talking from both sides of his mouth. It’s obvious he is the greatest
    supporter of Boko Haram and a major sponsor. Is Nigeria presidency his
    birthright? Sai Buhari, you would never become the president of this
    country again. Nigerians are wiser and was the reason you failed in your
    comeback bid. You will fail again and again and again. No wonder Boko
    Haram couldn’t surface for amnesty.

  • uduak akpan

    this is just another lie from APC

    propaganda is the work of APC which will land them in defeat

  • Whats politics here, we are talking about the lives of young girls and how to get them back, must everything be politics.

  • The insurgency will soon end, its just a matter of time.

  • chinwe davis

  • Kufere

    This Chibok girl thing is just a scam, Northern leaders should tell us where they are hiding those girls.

    • Maitama Tambari

      Just as your Presidential Candidate, under whose watch the girls were snatched and said that it was not true by not taking action immediately within the territory under emergency rules, that is completely under his security watch the girls went missing. Direct your question to him not the victims in the North. WE BELIEVE CHANGE! YES WE CAN IN NIGERIA.

      • Blessing Ndubisi

        These are the sponsors of BH

  • Ukpono

    The opposition should pls mention 3 ways they have help alleviate the political tension in this country.

    It is a pity that he sees the abduction of chibok girls as politics.

  • kingsley obi

    Soon our girls will be back to us and all this will stop.

  • faith adams

    Buhari should tell Nigerians where our girls are.

  • Wale Williams

    Banji u can as well write a Bill

    • Gunnermachine

      My thoughts exactly. Denying that it’s not a crime while it is in our laws is playing the ostritch.What the writer can do as a psychiatrist is engage the lawmakers and make them see reason why attempted suicide should not be a crime.

  • Dolapo Oseji

    Well written. I do pray someone of influence reads this and does something.

    • Gunnermachine

      Why pray for someone of influence when you can start the campaign yourself?

  • We need to mature beyond psychiatry, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), and the National Assembly and other systems of Caucasian aquarian alchemical manipulation.
