Nigerians Should Hold President Jonathan Responsible Over The Identity Of Boko Haram – Rep. Member

NASSHon. Shuaibu Gobir, a House of Representative Member representing Isa/Sabon Birni Federal Constituency of Sokoto state, has said that President Jonathan must hearken to calls by reasonable Nigerians on the issue of Boko Haram by granting them amnesty.

Answering a question during a media chat with members of NUJ Correspondents Chapel in Sokoto on Sunday, Hon. Gobir said that the referral of Boko Haram members as ‘ghosts’ was a misplaced definition since Jonathan had said he knew them.

Apparently backing the recent and repeated call by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III that President Jonathan should declare amnesty for the radical Islamist sect, the Rep. member said that there was no better advice than that offered by the Sultan.

According to him, “The Boko Haram people are not ghosts. Mr. President told us he knew who these Boko Haram people are; that they are in his cabinet, in the legislature, in the police, in the army,” he said adding, “Let everybody go and rest. Mr. President knows who and who members of Boko Haram are. Let him call them to order since he knows them. If he refuses to call them to order, it means there is hidden agenda about this Boko Haram.”

Speaking further, Gobir said, “At least, every reasonable Nigerian has advised him to give amnesty to them but he insists he is going to fight them.”

  • Hon Gobir just made political statements about the whole issue. Since members and their sponsors don’t want to come out and tell nigerians their mission, how then do you expect mr president to grant amnesty to people we know nothing about ,

  • This shows the level of illiteracy in this country. How can a serving member of the house of reps. Say amnesty should be granted to people who agitate for nothing, other than killing innocent souls. Shame on him!

  • You southern ppl are vry selfish nd crazy. Can’t u remember than former president granted amnesty to useless armed bandict in the south? Just because this is an issue concerning north nd u hate north. To hell with u.

    • Muhaammad, you are Idiot, the amnesty to Niger Delta freedom Fighters is well deserved, they fought for their resources, they do not burnt mosque or Churches, Do not Kill, they stated their reasons for agitation, and they unveil their identities. While you and your brothers are killing Christians without any reason know to well meaning Nigerians. NO AMNESTY FOR TERRORIST, OUR SOLDIER CAN HANDLE THE SITUATION. GOD BLESS NIGERIA AND UPROOT EVERY Enemies OF PEACE OF NIGERIA. IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

  • Is a pity that who called himself a house of Reps member dont know the meaning of amnesty. And this shows that he is one of them, so he can now tell us there promble

    • PLEASE SHARPEN YOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE ABILITY BEFORE QUESTIONING OTHERS’. SO WHAT IS THE MEANING OF AMNESTY WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE NORTH, AS AGAINST ITS MEANING WHEN TALKING ABOUT OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.

  • Yes Gobir now our president should be held responsible for your brothers who are busy hiding under rocks in your village deserts abi? Tell us that you are not one of the sponsors. Its a shame to you & your kins. the is that no northerner I repeat no arewa especially hausa fulani man will rule this country again if it does not go down well with you try otherwise infact you have no choice.its our time to shine by possessing our possessions illiterates keep feasting on colanuts mugu

  • You’re all ethno-religious savages because none of you answered the question he asked and the issue he raised. Your ethnic President said he knew Boko Haram members ,they’re in his government,he ate and wined with them. For this the Hon. Rep. member was saying why your ethnic saviour failed to explain fully who were the Boko Haram in his government. Forget about amnesty. Perhaps that is not important but why can’t this dummy tell Nigerians who are the Boko Haram since he knows them? These ethno-religious bigots of the South will be disappointed one day when it’s revealed that their ethnic lord is behind Boko Haram.

  • Well said rep,why would mr president call them ghost since he knows them.if he refused to fish them out from his administration,that shows there is a hidden agenda.so take a bold step to stem this insurgency,and listen to the northern people’s advice since we are the one suffering from the menace,and not the southerners who knows nothing about it.

  • HEAR THE LOUD-MOUTHED OPINIONATED BIGOTS WHOSE HATE-LADEN THINKING FACULTY GOES NON FUNCTIONAL BY MERE MENTION OF ANYTHING NORTH. THEY GET SWEPT AWAY BY THE URGE TO SAY SOMETHING EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE NOTHING REASONABLE TO SAY. CAMPAIGNERS OF HATE. FOLLOW THEM ON COMMENTS IN NEWSPAPER SITES SUCH AS VANGUARD, PUNCH ETC THEY MAINTAIN THE SAME CHARACTERISTICS. AND WHEN A COMMENT REDIRECTS THEM TO REASON, THEY SHOW A POORLY ORGANISED CRITIC BY HURLING A TORRENT OF ABUSE ON THE PERSON WHO COMMENTED. AND MOST OF HEM ARE TUCKED-IN THE FAR CORNERS OF THE SOUTH AND DEPEND ON NEWSPAPER FOR ALL THEIR OPINIONS. BY THEIR COMMENTS THEY ACCUMULATE HATE INTHE HEARTS AND PLACE AT RISK PURPOSEFUL NIGERIANS WHOSE ENDEAVOURS HAVE MET WITH SUCCESS IN THE NORTH. YOUR GROUP ARE THE FUEL AND THE OUTLAWS THE FIRE TO WHICH WE LOST OUR PEACE. PATHLESS, BLINDED MINDS WIDE BUT SHALLOW LIKE A SOUP DISH. PLEASE FIND SOMETHING USEFUL TO DO.

  • u northern pple are sick, always too sectional, unreasonable. wat is really wrong wit you pple? the best thing is to divide dis country so dat you pple will go and suffer. you don’t have doctors any more, no good schools. Allah has foresaken you pple.
