71 die in Abuja blast

Daily Trust - - VIEWS - Gov Rabiu Kwankwaso

The time to put a stop to the mas­sive killings tak­ing place in this coun­try is now. Mr. Pres­i­dent should act and be­have like a pres­i­dent of the world’s most pop­u­lous black na­tion. The way out of this cri­sis is nei­ther mil­i­tary as­sault nor Na­tional Con­fer­ence but rather the po­lit­i­cal will from our pres­i­dent and his al­lies. I sug­gest that Pres­i­dent Jonathan shelve his 2015 am­bi­tion in the in­ter­est of our great coun­try and the souls of in­no­cent Nige­ri­ans lost; be­cause go­ing by what late Andrew Azazi told us, PDP zon­ing is re­spon­si­ble for the hor­ror we are see­ing to­day. Also, the Pres­i­dent should sum­mon a meet­ing of all past pres­i­dents, party lead­ers, state gov­er­nors and tra­di­tional lead­ers in a bid to end the go­rilla war fac­ing our dear na­tion, and none of them should leave the venue un­til they re­solve the en­tire cri­sis be­dev­il­ing our coun­try.

fa­had342@ya­hoo.com ****************************** First of all, my sin­cere con­do­lences to the fam­i­lies and friends of those who lost their loved ones, and I am wish­ing those in­jured quick re­cov­ery. We are yet to see a sin­gle man/woman of hon­our re­sign­ing from this in­com­pe­tent govern­ment. Ev­ery time some­thing tragic hap­pens, all we get is some hal­fre­hearsed com­ment about “God will­ing we will over­come this...” News flash for you: God is not go­ing to WILL any­thing or come down from the heav­ens to solve any­thing, un­less you are will­ing to do some­thing about it. Re­sign Mr.Pres­i­dent be­cause you are com­plicit in this crime and you will be pros­e­cuted for mass mur­der in the not too dis­tant fu­ture.


mouk­tar@gmail.com *************************** In­stead of sym­pa­thiz­ing with those that lost dear ones, we are here look­ing for 2015 ticket. How many of you are sure of see­ing 2015? The mis­rule of Nigeria started long ago and not un­der GEJ. Let us in­ter­ro­gate all the past rulers in­clud­ing the so-called an­gel, Buhari. We are jok­ing and if care is not taken Crimea, Rwanda and South Sudan ex­pe­ri­ences will be

child’s play.

og­bue­fi­aka­ji­aku@ya­hoo.com ****************************** This is not the so­lu­tion. The only so­lu­tion is that Mr. Pres­i­dent should re­sign. If not for the fact that we can­not blame God for hav­ing al­lowed this man to be the pres­i­dent of the most pop­u­lous black na­tion of the world, one would have thought other­wise. But God knows why He is pun­ish­ing Nige­ri­ans by choos­ing for them an inept, in­sen­si­tive, gen­tle-look­ing Jonathan as pres­i­dent. We should all pray to God against the come-back of this Jonathan-led ad­min­is­tra­tion come 2015. We have had enough of en­demic cor­rup­tion, eco­nomic wastage, ad­min­is­tra­tive in­ep­ti­tude, loot­ing of pub­lic funds with im­punity and, above all, demo­cratic op­pres­sion/tyranny. Enough is enough!

el­nasirkumo@gmail.com ****************************** Ma­jor­ity of the res­i­dents there are poverty-stricken un­der­em­ployed, un­em­ployed, me­nial work­ers and hordes of crim­i­nals. The sur­pris­ing thing is that the wealthy and the big wigs that are re­spon­si­ble for all the de­gen­er­a­tion in the coun­try are not be­ing af­fected. Per­haps, this is the rea­son why the in­sur­gency continues un­abated.

Com­rade Bishir Dauda Katsina

un­shak­able­com­rade@ya­hoo.com ******************************* May the Almighty Lord bring an end to this men­ace. It is time we put all hands on deck to deal with this is­sue once and for all. Those who use vi­o­lence to scare Nige­ri­ans will never suc­ceed.


mam­man­hyt@ymail.com ****************************** The act is get­ting nearer to the seat of power; Jonathan must wake up. I will sug­gest he re­move the three gov­er­nors of the trou­bled re­gion and put an ad­min­is­tra­tor there to suit what the con­sti­tu­tion says it’s proper. May God help us all.


gra­ce­nard@ya­hoo.com ****************************** Are we go­ing to con­tinue like this and for how long? What we hear ev­ery day is “we are on top of the sit­u­a­tion”. In­no­cent people are dy­ing ev­ery day; yet our lead­ers are cel­e­brat­ing birth­days and wed­dings of their sons and daugh­ters. If the sit­u­a­tion is be­yond their con­trol, they should let the whole world know and stop us­ing peo­ples’ lives to play kites. Or are they us­ing in­no­cent people’s blood to pay their vows to their gods for be­ing in power? If they are truly of God the Almighty, the Cre­ator of heav­ens and the earth, they should act fast be­fore the wrath of God comes upon them and their fam­i­lies.

Olatunji John­son

lekkyj2005@ya­hoo.com I re­gret voting for Jonathan– Kwankwaso Kwankwaso wants this power by all means. But Nige­rian pres­i­dency is not for people like him.

cdis2008@ya­hoo.com ******************************* ***

I do not think there is need for one to re­gret one’s ac­tion es­pe­cially when one took the ac­tion based on one’s con­vic­tion that one was on the right path. As hu­man be­ings, mis­takes are bound to be made at a par­tic­u­lar point in time. If for in­stance, I sup­port some­one who I am con­vinced can deliver and the per­son turns out to be a fail­ure, I will sim­ply take re­spon­si­bil­ity for my er­ror of judge­ment, with­out any form of re­gret. One only re­grets what one was forced to do and not what one will­ingly did with­out any form of in­flu­ence or co­er­cion. No­body is happy with the gen­eral sit­u­a­tion of the coun­try to­day but we should not re­lent on our prayer to the Almighty Al­lah to help us out of the un­for­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion.

Gover­nor, didn’t you hear about the bomb blast in Nyanya? Can’t you stop for a mo­ment from play­ing pol­i­tics? You don’t even care about the das­tardly act that took so many lives; all you care about is power.


ikeanosike@gmail.com I’m not against con­duct of elec­tions in North-East – Sheka­rau Sheka­rau is anti-north.

Abba Muhammed

ab­ba_y­ola@ya­hoo.com ******************************** Sheka­rau is a fail­ure, un­grate­ful and be­trayal to the high­est or­der. Sheka­rau can­not even win a coun­cil in his ward talk­less of as­sist­ing GEJ to win elec­tion.
