Boko Haram Amnesty: Senate Backs Jonathan, Warns Kwakwanso

bhThe Nigerian Senate has declared its support for the stand taken by President Goodluck Jonathan over his refusal to grant amnesty to members of the Boko Haram sect. The Senate also advised the Kano State governor, Dr Rabiu Kwakwanso, to be mindful of his utterances on issues affecting the country.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Information, Media and Public Affairs, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, made the stand of the Senate known on Tuesday, while speaking with members the Senate Press Corps. He said the upper legislative chamber of the National Assembly agreed with the decision of the president: “I think the Senate position has always been constant and consistent.”

Meanwhile, reacting to a statement credited to Governor Kwakwanso condemning the reactions of some senators to the recent bomb blasts in Kano, Abaribe said people in high offices should used temperate languages in their utterances, especially when there was tension in the country.

His words: “As for the comments that were made by the governor of Kano State, we think that people in very high office should use temperate language, especially this time that there is a lot of tension in the country and we expect that in keeping with everybody’s high office, he will also act in the same manner,” he said.

  • Kwankwaso was right ol those useless motherfucking animals senetors where were they when thousands of northerners were been killed in every blessing day. Now because your useless igbo brodas were hit and now u began to open ur useless mouth after all you knew every thing and you are those that are planning it . Kwankwaso is far beyond ur imagination and PDP is olready dead waiting to be buried in 2015 in kano useless motherfuckers!!!!!!

    • Ozigiss your father is an ape and your mother a pig. The result of their combination is ur idiotic self. Islam is pure pig shit and hausa muslims are all scum. They deserve to be dumped into a hole.

    • Can you Ozigiss tell the northerners that were killed? What you should know is, all Christians are not from the north, they may be staying in the north, but are not of the north. I am from Kaduna south, I am not in the north. Do you know that Kwankoso is from Niger? because he has been building schools for his people there with our money and may be who knows he is training the terrorists with the name boko haram.

  • @ozigiss u re mad wit dat ur stupid statement, i blf u nd ur fada kwankwaso re memba of boko haram, blf me ur days re number u wil all die nd go a hel fire. Idiot

  • It’s high time,we understand that nigeria belongs to all of us,no reason anybody playing politics with boko haram insurgency,for those who do that are the real enemies of the entity called Nigeria.

  • you christain is dat the way bible teach you to insult other. why you people don’t have a respect of your self. you and johnathan are member of boko haram you are killin us pretending as you don’t know.

    • So Bokko Harams are now Christians? If u don’t have anything to contribute, better short your trap. Instead of coming out against these terrorists, we are playing hide and seek with innocent lives. The north should come out against them and not condemn the government for not yielding to their whims.
      I support the senate for siding with Mr president. How can u give amnesty to faceless people? If they want it, let them show face as did the Niger Delta people. Let’s call spade spade.
