Obasanjo-and-Jonathan-360x225Again, the Presidency has reacted sharply to statements credited to former President Olusegun Obasanjo that President Goodluck Jonathan should blame himself for not handling the menace of Boko Haram well.

The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak, said Obasanjo had earlier accused the President of using force and later he (Obasanjo) faulted the use of force.

Gulak said, “As far as the President is concerned, he does not take Obasanjo’s statement as something that is serious because the former President has unlimited access to him if he wants to proffer advice… If Obasanjo said what he said, we will just tolerate him because the other time, he said force should be used and he turned back to say dialogue must be used.

“Now, he is saying another thing. He is becoming confusing. I think the old man is becoming confused. The fact is that the insecurity issue started even during Obasanjo’s regime. It did not start with Jonathan’s regime.” Gulak said the present administration was focused on confronting insecurity through the use of intelligence.

The Special Adviser also said Jonathan had resolved not to use brutal force against innocent citizens: “The security agencies are deploying intelligence. The culprits are being arrested and arraigned in courts of law. Bomb manufacturing outfits are being identified and destroyed. That is the best way to go about it and the government is doing so reasonably,” he said.
