Jonathan urges world lead­ers to un­mask ter­ror­ists’ spon­sors

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Haba! Oga Jonathan. If with all the in­for­ma­tion and se­cu­rity re­ports at your dis­posal, you can­not take ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion, please stop cry­ing like a baby. Con­front the chal­lenge be­fore you, please. Who ben­e­fits from in­se­cu­rity in Africa? Who sells gad­gets and so­phis­ti­cated tech­nol­ogy to us? Who are our so-called con­sul­tants? Are they not the same people that in­vited you to their sum­mit? What is the essence of the sum­mit in the first place – a di­rect re­ac­tion to the China-African sum­mit, right? The ma­jor rea­son for in­se­cu­rity in Africa is to rat­tle and dis­lodge China’s eco­nomic pen­e­tra­tion in Africa. So, stop wast­ing our time and face the re­al­ity of your coun­try’s chal­lenges. The era of beg­ging is over. Af­ter all, you told us in 2010 that you know the guys that did the Oc­to­ber bomb­ing. You equally told us that there are Boko Haram in your govern­ment. Mr. Pres­i­dent, all the onions are in­side your bas­ket; it is left for you to be­gin to slash it into the meat. But you know in slash­ing the onions, tears do come out; that is what you are afraid of right?

bukhar­i­ *********************** With gen­uine pa­tri­o­tism from all our se­cu­rity out­fits in the coun­try we can eas­ily over­come this in­sur­gency. The prob­lem is that some people are mak­ing a lot of money at the detri­ment of in­no­cent lives, most es­pe­cially se­nior of­fi­cers, con­sul­tants and con­trac­tors. More­over, it’s only “a small part of the coun­try.” But if there is sin­cer­ity of pur­pose and our se­cu­rity at the bat­tle­front are well kit­ted, we shall in­sha Al­lah de­feat the in­sur­gents. No western coun­try, Mr. Pres­i­dent, will help us de­feat the in­sur­gents un­less there is some­thing in it for them. Mr. Pres­i­dent, please ‘do the need­ful’; I be­lieve you can.


dan­ladee@ya­ *********************** How could you shy away from your re­spon­si­bil­ity and lay it on other people? The other time he asked Obama to fix Nigeria and now the call is on the world lead­ers in gen­eral ask­ing them to fish out ter­ror­ist’s spon­sors in his coun­try. He for­got what he told Nige­ri­ans that the spon­sors of Boko Haram are those close to him in his govern­ment. Mr. Pres­i­dent, the world lead­ers you are call­ing on are not so in­com­pe­tent.


babs200881@ya­ *********************** This should start here at home where the killings have been on for quite a long time, es­pe­cially the north east­ern part of the coun­try. As the say­ing goes, char­ity be­gins at home, Mr. Pres­i­dent.

Umar Sanda *********************** Let him ex­pose the ones he is hid­ing in his coun­try. How many times did some people bail the late Mo­hammed Yusuf from se­cu­rity op­er­a­tives? Where they ever men­tioned in his ‘fight against ter­ror­ism’? If he has noth­ing to say he had bet­ter keep quite.

fullmeshc­put­ *********************** GEJ, it is not their re­spon­si­bil­ity; in Nigeria you are re­spon­si­ble. You have said it be­fore that your govern­ment knows the spon­sors. There is no point in shy­ing away from this fun­da­men­tal is­sue of se­cu­rity of Nige­ri­ans and putting it as col­lec­tive re­spon­si­bil­ity of world lead­ers.
