Fed Govt Is Biggest Boko Haram, Says Buhari

Former Head of State and presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in last year’s presidential election, General Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday described the Goodluck Jonathan administration as the biggest Boko Haram in the country.

Buhari said he would make up his mind on the 2015 presidential election when his party reorganises.

Addressing Niger State CPC members, who visited him in Kaduna, the former military leader noted that “since the leaders do not listen to anybody but does whatever they wish, there is nothing the North can do”.

He added: “I will like to quote Prof. Ango Abdullahi, who said there are three Boko Harams, including the original one, led by Muhammed Yusufu, who was killed and his supporters tried to take revenge in attacking the law enforcement agencies and politicians.

“There is another developed Boko Haram of criminals, who steal and kill. The biggest Boko Haram is the Federal Government.”

On his political future, Buhari said: “God willing, something will happen in 2015.”

Buhari said the government has two options to conduct free and fair elections in 2015 or face humiliation from the people.

He said: “If what happens in 2011 should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon will all be soaked in blood.”

The former Head of State said whether or not he contests the presidential election in 2015, the party should be well organised while he re-considers his stand.

Buhari said: “That’s what I told those who have visited me in the past, but the press wrote that I said I have changed my mind about re-contesting.”

The former Head of State noted that the Jonathan administration has destroyed the petroleum industry, saying what is happening in the industry can only happen under the type of the leadership Nigeria has now.

He said: “There’s nowhere in the world where such things happen. There’s nowhere in the world where a government can increase the cost of petroleum product by more than 120 per cent. It is most insensitive. Besides the air people breathe, the next important thing to them is petroleum.

“Unfortunately, I know more about the petroleum industry than others in the government, because I was there for over three years as a leader. We started with Port Harcourt refinery producing 60,000 barrels per day. It was upgraded to 100,000 barrels per day. Another one was built there, also in Port Harcourt, producing over 150,000 barrels, making a total of 250,000 barrels per day. These were slated purely on Nigeria’s crude oil.

“I personally asked the owner to sign the contract for Warri and Kaduna refineries, 100,000 barrels each. There were more than 20 depots, more than 3,200 pipelines and there was even a time we were exporting 100,000 barrels per day of refined products. But the current leadership has destroyed the industry.”

    These guys are bloody torterisrs. What kind of government dialogue with a terrorist group? Its never done. They can’t possibly compare Boko haram to the Niger delta militants. Or how do you save someone that does not want to be saved. I never liked Obasanjo, but I am sure he would have declared a state of emergency. Leaders can not possibly tell a government how to deal with issues like this. I was shocked when I heard leaders in Maiduguri ordering the government to withdraw military action in the region. You kidding me? Jonathan! We might be running a democratic sys of government,it does not stop us from using force where necessary. In my opinion, I think the government is somehow strengthening these bloody bastards by giving them breathing space. If you think only the Northern region is in trouble,wait till next couple of months when these bastards find a reason or two to invade other regions. Jonathan! Wake up! This aint no the I never had a shoe story anymore . This is a terrorist attack.!. I am sure he wouldn’t need a lil piece of the action in his state before we start seeing effectiveness in his decisions.
