Jonathan Should Resign if he Cannot Tackle Terrorism – Mallam el-Rufai

One time Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to quit if he could not solve the growing security threats to lives and property in the country.

Mallam el-Rufai made this statement in an interview with Vanguard newspaper which was published o the newspaper’s website. The former minister condemned the way innocent souls are being slaughtered daily without any response from the administration.

El-Rufai’s statement appeared to be a response to Chief Edwin Clark’s assertion that northern leaders were not doing enough to curtail the Boko Haram sect. While dismissing Clark’s allegation as untenable, the former minister warned the elder statesman to desist from making inflammatory and unverified statements capable of exposing him to ridicule instead of applause that he deserves at his age.

He then pointed out that President Goodluck Jonathan has already made it clear to Nigerians and the international community that he is unable to handle the security situation of the country: “Why is it that only President Jonathan cannot solve Nigeria’s security problem?… If he cannot do the job for which he was elected to do, he should consider going home. No president has ever sought the help of the ordinary people in tackling security problems in this country.”


  1. Let me say that I have never liked President Jonathan only because I don’t like PDP but I’m very sad about the way he is being blackmailed! Does it mean another ethnic group cannot rule this country? Haba! Wanan bai yi dadi ba! Walahi! It is very clear all these bombs and insecurity is a ploy to frustrate this man and its very bad walahi! I am a core northerner from malala, Gombe, but honestly my religion preaches peace. Why all these nonsense? El rufai and IBB are evil,why are they playing politics with innocent lives? infact the northern elite are not being fair to Nigerians Gaskiya, have we not been living in peace before? Why now for all these matsala?tou idan bamua so one Nigeria mu raba she mana?I don’t like this at all. Infact what we need to do is kill the likes of IBB, Buhari, el rufai,etc these people are playing politics with our lives walahi.

  2. Senseless tall. Is only Boko Haram issue/problem that Jonathan is facing in Nigeria. Why cann’t Mallam el-Rufai and his Northern brothers and sisters fish out Boko Haram in their Region. What efforts has the Northern Govenors made to provide security and check Boko Haram manace in the North.
