Maiduguri: Jonathan Finally Summons Courage, To Visit Borno State Next Week

1606N.Goodluck-JonathanPresident Goodluck Jonathan is not afraid of visiting any part of Nigeria and this is according to his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak.

Gulak was reacting to Thursday’s visit of governors of the parties in the newly formed All Progressives Congress to Maiduguri, Borno State where Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola made a veiled reference to Jonathan as lacking in courage, compassion and decisiveness.

Borno State has been the hot bed of the fundamental Islamic sect, Boko Haram and since the insurgency – which has claimed several lives, began in 2009, Jonathan has not visited the state.

The governors said they chose Maiduguri to prove a point that “there should not be a no-go area for any Nigerian leader.”

The presidential aide stated that to demonstrate Jonathan’s courage, he would be visiting the state on Thursday.

He said, “Who is afraid to visit Borno State? The President will be on a state visit to Borno State next week, March 7 to be precise.

“The governors are just trying to pre-empt the President. Goodluck Jonathan is not afraid of visiting any part of the country. He is the President of all states and all parts of the country without exception.”

  1. soldiers spread bullets on students demonstrating because of lack of water in their university and killed , wounded many and up till now the President of Nigeria have not made any statement on this outrageous issue. Yet the army is coming out to deny that it was not them even when a lot of people witnessed the shooting.I cry everyday because of this penchant of killing our youths just like that for demanding their rights. Johnathan is always quick to issue a statement whenever one illiterate chinese man is kidnapped in Nigeria but feels it not important to step in to this type of callous display by our soldiers. By the way who instructed soldiers to go deal with students demonstration? Dont we have the police again? I weep for NIGERIA.
