A statement by the national Publicity Secretary, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Chief Olisa Metuh, has contended that the Boko Haram sect is a local terror group, and that poverty and misrule were not responsible for the insurgency.

According to PDP, poverty was not a recent phenomenon in the country “and therefore cannot form the basis of the sudden wave of criminal attacks on innocent victims, most of whom live within the poverty bracket.” The party also urged those behind the violent attacks against Nigerians to have a rethink and understand that life was sacrosanct and that nobody has the right to shed innocent blood under any guise.

Chief Metuh said that the PDP was throwing its weight behind President Goodluck Jonathan for his forthrightness on national issues especially the Boko Haram insurgency in his interview with CNN on Wednesday. The PDP also agreed with the President that there has been tremendous improvement in power supply in the country under the current dispensation.

Metuh’s words: “The President is right and we fully align with him on his position that Boko Haram is not a product of poverty or misrule as some people are suggesting. We agree with him that it is a local terror group… There have been successive regimes before this administration but this insurgency increased the same way terrorist activities are escalating in other parts of the world at this time. So it is clear that some people are out to perpetrate acts of terrorism in Nigeria to create a semblance of insecurity as it obtains in other troubled spots of the world.”
