Jonathan is not being Properly Advised – Babangida

Former President, Ibrahim Babangida, has responded to Chief Edwin Clark over his allegation that some Northern leaders including him (Babangida) have remained indifferent about the Boko Haram insurgency.

Babangida also distanced himself from Nigerian politics, saying he has since left the Nigerian ‘political industry’. He then decided to trace the difficulties of the Jonathan administration to divisive people he said were of the same mindset with Clark, who he claims have prevented the present administration from seeking reasonable counsel from those that could help it.

In a statement issued on Sunday by his spokesman, Kassim Afegbua, Babangida has denied having anything to do with the Boko Haram sect; he also did not fail to dress down the elder statesman, Edwin Clark for the allegations against him. Below is an excerpt from the statement:

“The statement reportedly credited to Chief Edwin Clark on Friday, August 3, 2012 in several newspapers and online media to the effect that General IBB has a hand in Boko Haram, is the subject of this response. We are ashamed to state here that rather than coming up with plausible and efficacious solution[s] to the insecurity in the country, what the self-acclaimed elder statesman came up with was buck-passing, such odium and rancid outburst, to the extent of trying to accuse General Ibrahim Babangida on the Boko Haram menace. We view this misguided and senseless statement in very bad taste and we take very strong exceptions to his drooling and implied conclusion.”


  1. Thanks be to God; IBB could talk now disclaiming Boko Haram. Why now? What have you (IBB, Atiku, Buhari & other Nothern leaders) done or are doing to curb this Boko Haram menace? Are you affraid of being attacked by them if you conderm their bloodletting acts? God’ll sure expose all the supporters, sponsors & financiers of Boko Haram in Jesus name Amen.

  2. Babangida &his cohorts will pay for all they have planted. When a woman is pregnant, no matter how she conceals it, it will show one day and delivery is coming! After killing Dele Giwa and master minding the murder of MKO, not to mention others, the evil genuis & his cohorts will pay dearly in this llifetime; they will all die slowly with agonizing and groaning pain; just like all the innocent souls and bood of the women and children of God in and out of the churches they have selectivly killed in Northern Nigeria!!!

  3. Babangida. Is among those tha are fallin NIGERIA.He witdraw him politices b,cuz he kws wat is cumin up.nw hs among the Leader that ar fallin our country.

  4. it is easy to make a tyrant but very very difficult to get rid of him see Saddam, Gaddhafi, Bashar Al-Assad etc. We have make a tyrant in IBB and others to get rid of them is a problem but like the arabs, we can ijn.

  5. Why are you blaming IBB, Buhari and other northern leaders over Boko Haram bloody activities while former Borno state Governor, Ali Madu Sheriff has been vividly acused or having link with the boko haram and GEJ did not do any effort to arrest this man. This shows that GEJ himself is the head of boko haram. God will surely expose you people.
