Boko Haram: Shehu Sani, Datti Ahmed Seeking Personal Glory – Presidency

datti-ahmadThe Presidency has described the withdrawal of two members – Shehu Sani and Islamic cleric Datti Ahmed – from the 26-member Presidential Committee on the North’s security as shameful and self-serving.

The Special Adviser to the President on Public Communication, Dr Doyin Okupe, who spoke in Lagos, accused Sani and Ahmed of seeking vain glory and unpatriotic.

Okupe spoke even as Presidency said there was no going back on its amnesty plan for Boko Haram.

He said: “I feel that their influence has been reduced. They wanted to do it alone and take personal glory. But with the committee in place now, they decided to pull out.

“Withdrawing from that committee is shameful. If the government invited you, you should feel free and happy to serve.”

It was learnt that the Presidency might adopt an “open” approach by mandating the amnesty committee to “begin dialogue with willing Boko Haram leaders and factions”.

Furthermore, the Federal Government is banking on the support of prominent Emirs, political leaders and clerics in making the amnesty programme a success.

The fate of Boko Haram detainees, their wives and children will depend on the recommendation of the amnesty panel.

    mindless bigoted jihadism. The plans of boko
    to islamize Nigeria will not prosper.

    the Northern /Niger-Delta parts of the Country We the Eastners are watching the Senario. Lets the truth be known and the reality being faced. This advice should not be over-looked, because the real Bomb will soon Explode if not checked Now!

  3. Gabe or what ? U re very stupid, a wild animal like u is not suppose to talk when it comes to national issues like this. The fate of nigeria is @ the hand of northerners….hausas in particular, had it been hausas are in the interest of joining boko haram, making nigeria to disintegrate or not allowing any christian to leader we would have already done so. We rfgard most of nigerian xtians as traditional worshippers for only few of them do practice the real xtianity i.e the (orthodox xtians), islam does not allow such child-play that’s why a muslim must practice islam as a whole….what is prohibited MUST be avoider and what is obligatory must be followed strictly, unlike dat ur religion dat only few of u follow its teachings righly and care to know the fact about it. Gabe, u do not deserve to be human. Idio, fool wrongly guided somebody.
