How Jonathan & Nigerian State Governors Escape From Boko Haram

Just came across this interesting piece that depicts the situation Nigeria is presently facing.

Boko Haram commmander, Abubakar Shekau has demanded for a 2-day urgent meeting with the President, his Vice and the 36 Governors in the country. It will start on Sunday and end on Monday. The meeting is to hold in their Camp in the dreaded forest.

Government reaction: President Goodluck Jonathan has directed that all the Governors should be present in the meeting as he wont be able to be there because he has an urgent meeting in Paris. Oga Jona escapes.

Governor Amaechi called Fashola today and told him that he is travelling tomorrow and that he wont be back until Tuesday,
Fashola said he should call another person because he himself is already on his way to England to see the Queen.

Oshiomole called Uduaghan to tell him that he is travelling to Senegal and he will come back on Tuesday,
but Uduaghan said I was about calling you to tell you that am on my way to UK Prison to see my Oga, Ibori.

When Okorocha called Vice President Sambo to ask how the meeting will be, Sambo said: my brother I am not feeling fine o and I wont feel fine until Tuesday evening…
Okorocha said ehyaa, I just want to tell you that I am in One Airport in Ghana, and many of the Governors are also here with me, we are on a queue to get a ticket for night flight. Please we are all coming back to Nigeria on Tuesday evening.

Ajimobi got to the Airport trying to jet out, he saw Aregbesola booking for a ticket to move with the next flight.

When Ibikunle Amosun called Kayode Fayemi to tell him dat he wont be able to come to the meeting because he wants to go to Portugal, Kayode Fayemi told him: I am presently in India, in fact Mimiko is also here wit me, we wont be back until Tuesday evening…
When Okorocha called the Vice president to ask how d meeting will be, Sambo said i am not feeling fine and i wont feel fine until tuesday evening……..Okorocha said ehyaa, i just want to tell you that I am in One Airport in Ghana, and the other 35 Governors are also here with us, we are on a queue to get a ticket for night flight…….we are all coming back on Tuesday evening.

Fellow Nigerians: who will now attend to this Boko Haram and save Nigeria from this madness?

“Nigerian Soldiers Afraid Of Fighting Boko Haram Terrorists” – US Air Force Chief Of Staff

Few days after US Marines were moved from Nigeria to Sicily, US General Mark Welsh hinted that the United States might limit its involvement in the ongoing search for the kidnapped school girls in Borno state because the Nigerian Military are very afraid of the dreaded extremists.
While speaking on Thursday before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, the US Air Force Chief of staff, Gen.
Mark Welsh III, said, “We’re now looking at a military force that is, quite frankly, becoming afraid to even engage. The United States doesn’t have the capacity, the capability to go rescue every kidnapped person around the world.”
Saturday PUNCH learnt that the US had questioned the ability of the Nigerian military to rescue the girls even with
international help.
The Pentagon’s Principal Director for African Affairs, Alice Friend, also said, “The Nigerian military has the same
challenges with corruption that every other institution in Nigeria does. Much of the funding that goes to the Nigerian military is skimmed off the top, if you will.”
US officials have also said that its involvement had also been made difficult because Nigerian officials ignored past warnings to soften brutal tactics that only fuelled the Boko Haram’s insurgency.
At Thursday’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, officials condemned the kidnappings and committed American aid to help rescue the girls. But they also expressed frustration at Nigeria’s political and military leaders for failing to heed Washington’s warnings about the extremist group.
“We have been urging Nigeria to reform its approach to Boko Haram,” Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Robert Jackson, said.
He added, “From our own difficult experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq, we know that turning the tide of an insurgency requires more than force. The state must demonstrate to its citizens that it can protect them and offer them opportunity.
When soldiers destroy towns, kill civilians and detain innocent people with impunity, mistrust takes root.”
A retired Head of the US military’s Africa Command, Gen.
Carter Ham, said, “My sense is that US Government will
remain in a supporting role to Nigeria. I do not think the U.S.G. will seek unilateral action.”
The size of the Sambisa Forest is also believed to make the
search for the girls difficult.

“We are basically searching for these girls in an area that’s
roughly the size of West Virginia, so it’s a tough challenge, to be sure,” state Department spokesman, Marie Harf, said on Thursday.

Patience Jonathan’s Bad English Caused By Lack Of Primary & Secondary Education” – Ali Baba

Nigerian comedian Alibaba in a recent interview on Hip TV
blasts First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan for her recent
grammatical blunder on national TV.
Ali Baba said the First Lady lacks basic education and that is why her grammar is very poor.
He further lay emphasis on the importance of Girl-Child
education in the country In his own words;

“The education of the girl child is very important because if
Patience Jonathan were educated, we will not have the problem that people think we have with her not being able to speak English”.
“Having a primary and secondary education helps a child to
develop (into) whatever the child wants to become later. It is
obvious that Patience (Jonathan) did not get any of the above, or did not get it properly”.

Some Nigerians have gone to the extent of creating a remix
video of Patience Jonathan and Patrick Obahiagbon.
