A president playing dangerous politics with Boko Haram
This is your vintage, your judgement which usually veers off course to stand logic on its head. If the President is playing politics with Boko Haram, then Gen. Gusau and Dasuki’s appointments were mere political jingoism? Murtala Nyako’s speech in America is highly condemnable, coming from a former Military Governor, former Chief of Naval Staff and now a state governor. Let us restate the question: what has Nyako, as governor, done to keep the youth of Adamawa busy and away from the lure of easy BH recruits? Absolutely nothing! And you Mohammed support such person? It is a shame for an enlightened person like you to heap the blame of the BH scourge and massive illiteracy in the North on GEJ. Ebonyi State receives one of the least allocations in Nigeria, yet education there is free up to secondary school. Their state university is affordable for even an Okada operator to send his wards. Their youth are not idle because their governors deploy the very little they have to educate them. But the likes of Nyako who receive even bigger allocation divert the money, play religion and blame GEJ for their feudal governance approach. They are satisfied to grow mass illiteracy in their states because it has been the deliberate policy of the ruling dynasty in northern Nigeria to ensure that the masses are kept uneducated, so they can continue to deploy religion and subterfuge to perpetually rule them.
