Start Your War Now Because Jonathan’ll Lose In 2015, Northern Elders Reply N’Delta Militants

asari-and-Ango-AbdullahiNorthern elders have emphatically declared that President Goodluck Jonathan will not be re-elected in 2015.

They, therefore, advised the President’s Ijaw kinsmen to start their much touted war now since Jonathan will not win re-election based on his record of performance.

The northern elders, under the aegis of Northern  Elders Forum (NEF), further argued that Jonathan was not supposed to be president in the first place if he’d respected his party’s much touted zoning formula.

Prof. Ango Abdullahi, a former Vice Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and spokesman for northern elders declared: “We in the North are not going to support Jonathan in 2015 because he has done nothing for this country since he became president.

“In fact, things in this country are worse than they have ever been. So far, in terms of the performance of this president, I don’t see how he can stand and win an election if you judge him in terms of the social, economic and political indices in the Nigerian environment where we are now. Things have gone from bad to worse since his coming.

“In the first place, he should not be sitting as the president of Nigeria going by the zoning formula of his party, the PDP. The president should have come from the North based on the zoning policy of the PDP.

“Under the PDP zoning policy, the North allowed the South to produce the president for eight years, which Obasanjo took and, by their own signature, including Jonathan himself, when he was the Deputy Governor, on behalf of his governor, that the North will then run for eight years and we agreed. Umaru Yar’Ádua started by died after two and a half years.”

Abdullahi continued: “Of course, the constitution allows that his vice should serve out the remaining term of the joint ticket and we did not complain. Commonsense should have dictated to Jonathan that he should be honourable enough to respect the zoning agreement which he was a party to.

“He should have been gentlemanly enough to say to his party, ‘look, I’m not qualified to put up myself for election beyond 2011 and that a northerner should run for the post as agreed.  He did not do so, but came out to say that he did not know about the zoning.

“So, how do you deal with this kind of a person who cannot honour a simple gentleman agreement? So, from all these perspectives, I don’t see how one can support the president or his ability to be able to lead this country.”

On the threat by ex-militant leaders to wreak havoc if Jonathan was not returned in 2015, Prof. Abdullahi noted that he wouldn’t have dignified them with a response but for the fact that he was aware the militants were speaking the minds of those in the ‘corridors of power.’

Abdullahi said, “The choice to resort to violence or not is that of the militants. The choice for peace or no peace is that of all Nigerians. No individual or group of individuals has monopoly for peace or lack of it.

“My reaction is that but for the fact that I am aware that (Alhaji) Dokubo (ex-N-Delta militant leader) is a spokesperson for the corridors of powers, I would have ignored him. But my reaction now is directed to their leaders, elders, including the president, that if it is their feeling that this is the way things should go, I am saying, on behalf of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, that they should start the crisis now because I’m putting them on notice that Jonathan will not be president in 2015. So they can start now and we in the North are waiting.”

Prof. Abdullahi boasted that the North would present a common front when it comes to picking a candidate capable of defeating President Jonathan in a free and fair election in 2015.

He said, “Look, what I want to see is democracy in practice so that as many candidates who want to contest the next presidential election, including Jonathan himself, can do so freely, without being witch-hunted or harassed by anyone.

“In fact, I would prefer that Jonathan should contest and I can assure you that he would lose. And as far as the North is concerned, there are many credible and qualified candidates and, once a free and fair election is guaranteed, the people would choose who they want to be their president come 2015.”

  1. Fuck all ye northen elder or whats ever, if that is the reason why you people went and be creating problems for Goodluck tenue, to used it as excuse to stop him lie lie, he must complete by peace or by war, and mind you northens can not continue reling Nigeria, are they the only people in Nigeria? so let there be war we dont care,

    • hey…before the uprise of bokoharam, he ruled nigeria for two good year in yar’aduas tenure.i knew he was a Confused Man….No boko haram is disturbing him, He is not Capable, he is just an empty brain.

  2. EVEN THEIR ELDERS TYPICALLY BEHAVES LIKE MORONS. THEY DONZKT THINK A HOOTH DAT THEIR SO CALLED HAS BEEN TOTALLY DECIMATED. D ONLY THING THEY THINK ABOUT IS 2015. POWER THEY HELD ON FOR D GREATER PART OF DIS COUNTRY WITHOUT ANYTHING TO SHOW FOR EXCEPT RUIN AND PLUNDER. ANGO ABUDULLAHI IS SUFFERING FROM D BLOOD INNOCENT ABU STUDENTS HE WASTED COS OF HIS LEADERSHIP INEPTITUDENESS. LET IT BE CLEAR TO THE MINORITY NORTHERN MOSLEMS DAT THE XTIAN NORTH HAS VOWEDS NOT TO VOTE FOR A MOSLEM AGAIN COS OF THEIR TREACHERY AND HIGH HABDEDNESS AGAINST THEM. SO WHERE WILL THEY GETTHE VOTES TO DEFEAT GEJ IF NOT FOR POLITICAL HALLAUCINTION.

  3. These ppl think they are smart. They speak of Nigeria but what they mean is Nigeria with them in power. They are d most tribalist of all. We don’t want you ppl. You contribute nothing! U frustrated the hell out of GEJ’s presidency u think u r smart Abi. No worry na. Everyday for Oppressor one day for d oppressed. Same way British left Oct 1 u too will be banished! 1000 armies cannot defeat an idea who’s time has come!

  4. The northern leaders made the country ungovernable for GEJ as they promised, simply because they’re not the one in power. Now, they want to term him ‘incompetent’ they can’t succeed. If they were in power, there wouldn’t have been anything like bokoharam. Do the north think they can spoil the govt of others, then have theirs in peace? Impossible! Power has changed hands, they should learn to live with it.

  5. “‘WA YAMKURUUNA WA YAMKURULLAH, WALLAHU KHAIRUL MAAKIREEN’, my prof make u tel dem let dem hear, we r nt afraid v any threat of any bastard, we r ready 4 any war, NO MRE JONATHAN 2015, so d animal shld start d war ryt nw. ‘ALLAHU MAULANA WALA MAULA LAHUM’.

    • THIS IS BECAUSE U JIHAD THINK THAT THE NORTH OWNS NIGERIA,YOUR WAR CAN NO MORE GO BEYOND THE NORTH , NIGERIANS HAVE REALIZED THEMSELVES,DON’T THINK THAT YOU WILL GET THE SAME SUPPORT YOU GOT FROM BRITAIN AND AMERICA DURING THE WAR OF 67-70BECAREFUL

  6. the original northerners because we know many states are use as north to complete numbers, should go and contest election in benin republic or chad that’s where they belong as far as i’m concerned they are not part of our country period.

  7. When you practice democracy you should practice it by the book. Let us plan on a free and fair election. No coercion, no guns, no threats and let the candidate with the largest number of votes win. Those who are beating the drums of war should visit Somalia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Syria, etc and come out with their impression of what a war can do to Nigeria. DEMOCRACY, DEMOCRACY NOT DEMONCRACY.

  8. Can d northern elders do wat they r sayin?They r betrayers of d highest order,ds is wat they said at d last election,bt they sold their votes,they r political freaks!Lets c,come 2015

  9. This Nation was not one from the start; we were almargamated into one. Surely one day the two parts that make up this nation (the north and the south) will break up. If this is the right time for the breakup, so be it. The south is ready, we are always ready.

    • southwest want a peaceful breakout too….let southsouth consume their oil and north feed on their cattle, and east feed on themselves once more,

  10. GEJ may be a bad president b/cos I don’t want to convience anybody, but lets look at the way things are take for example the nigerian railway was built by the british but destroyed by northern military leaders it’s being rebuilt by GEj. It’s very unfortunate this retired VC is truly retired as well as his brain, don’t worry am not a poliitician but angry citizen because each time I ask question about ownership of oil feild around my around my area it’s always associated to a northerner, pray the time dosnt because you will lose,

  11. D northerners are stupid, dat seat is not 4 a family property of d north,dey shud stay clear or face war. Who is dis foolish abhdulahi. Better watch urself as u talk, or u dance 2 d tone b4 even approaching d battle field.

  12. U pple only worries about urself nd yet u defended on one thing always,whn eva talks like dis take place u only sat trabelisim.then y r we saying nigeria since u talk abt tribe issue,dat means we’re nt d same nigerians we r different.nd mr badlock only hear ur word nt northern how do u think we north to feel abt this.i strongly believe our man jona wil nt win election on coming compaign.

  13. Hmmmmmmm!d foolishness of d fathers has affected d children even down to there elders,we southerns are not affraid,we will gv dem what they want.

  14. What is surprising me is that Nigerians hav forgotten the lyf they ar into, just bcos this cabals that cll themselves PDP have injected them with religious and cultural differences. The fact is let Jonathan continue if we Nigerians think that’s the best option for us. You cannot figure out any development apart frm power sect in Nigeria, our economy is worst dan before, our military (defence) is also worst dan it had ever been, wen it comes to educational sect the same story, yet we forgot all this things.
    Let me make it clear to u all Nigerians that all wat is happening in Nigeria is an insight job me nd u wll nt understand but go back to wat special adviser to Mr. President said (Gen. Late Andrew Azazi) nd former governor of Abia Orji Uzo Kalu also said.
    I’m nt saying that u shld vote for Muslim or non Muslim, northerner or southerner but let’s forget everythn and vote for the one that can transform our country.

    • thank God you were able to pin point one area that is working (power i.e Electricity), can you say the same when the so called north were ruling?

      • Ur prblm is dat, u guys ar bunch of pple dat base there judgement base on religious nd cultural differences, Nd i cn assure you dat if we cn continue lyk dis we hav never seen anythng yet. Even a mad man cn figure out the difference between northern administration nd southern administration. My friend cn u compare Yaradua nd GEJ regime in terms of development of the nation??? I dnt mean dat is only northerner dat cn rule, others shld be given opportunity to rule but nt lyk GEJ bcos he has to become a follower nt a leader if nt 2015 Nigeria wll be worst dan Sierra Leone. …………>>>Mark my words<<<<

    • He himself, did he govern his state in good condition when was elected as a governor of his state?
      Foolish man..Fellow Nigerians, If revolution will bring about transformation and a better change, Let is begin but for the Northerners, Remember..this is not the case of the Nigerian Biafran war where you are he goat where on power..this is a case of taken you back to where you belong.Immensely.

      Note! An absolute caution should be noted

  15. Let d war begin!We south are not afraid of u northern…U are just a vampire that use blood to survive.Fuck u northerns!!

  16. Which Northerners is prof talking abt? I’m 4rm de north n i don’t think i can recall when we all agree not voting GEJ come 2015. Truly 99days 4 de thief but 1 n i mean 1 day 4 de owner (99 days 4 de oppressors, 1day 4 de oppressed) . When BHRI n ATKU said dey will make 9Ja ungovernable 4 our belove GEJ what happen? Nothing absolutely nothing: 2day Alhaji Asari’s comments is heating headlines. Let me finally say we have some Northern Christians maybe n only maybe if 1 came out 2 contest come 2015, otherwise GEJ remains our pilot.

  17. Hmm all what the southerners are saying is war, and always put a blame on the north i believe non of you had experience any war at his doorstep believe me you wouldn’t want that. Let us all pray for the peace of this country. For those people abusing north watch your mouth cos you are not doing any good to this country, you need to go back to school and learn discipline cos you are lacking it. For the good once pray for peace.

  18. we Nigerian’s shd come to our senses instead of think about war we shd pray for the peace of this noble country.

  19. Aboki wey no dey go school wan rule me? i don see something for bangladesh! Northerners after throwing the country away for 32 years, after killing our economy, after enlisting us amongst terrorist nations, after slaughtering innocent lives and damaging assets, after taking the life of our human rights actvist ( Dele Giwa and then torturing Gani Fawemi), after looting our money is still fighting to rule again. Power has left the northerners long time ago. If you destroy this country for 32 years and above, and you want GEJ to fix it just in 2 years, then, you must be joking.

  20. You should not listen to educated fool that lack common sense. His brain is retired. If leadership is ur property or birthright come claim it . mumu wey manage go school under the tree desert region dey talk shit.

  21. The truth all have failed to see is that GEj is not doing well, is a result of continuous sabotage by elements from the north to discredit his administration. when a man is trying to fix things and you are busy light fire all around him, how does he concentrate? you smile at him in front and go behind to light fire, how will he concentrate. the northern elements are using there misdeed to discredit GEJ. to be fair to him he has being very kind and humbleness, accommodating all theses excesses in the name of peace and you the north say he has failed?
    think again, north think again and leave selfishness.

    the real solution to all these problems is God’s Kingdom, man generally has failed, in all governments in the world.

  22. All sensible Nigeria shud look at d past nd present, d security, power, agriculture, are d rest. Are dey improving or worsen? Concerning d Retired Vc comment, was he d first 2 make such a comment? Wat abt Dukubo’s comment. Be sensitive. Insha Allahu, may Malpa bazaya komoba.

  25. I think the prof.should go n have a re-think.tell me,what has d country benefited 4rm the past northern president for over 32yrs in power,you must have known by now that power has shifted base n you guys should support the president and stop looking for loopholes in other to paint his administration black by encouraging your boko brothers to perpetuate evil against humanity.lets see how 2015 election goes,we shall see who will start the war wen Jonathan wins.Gone are the days wen u import foreigners to come vote for u guys but i promise you that GEJ will emerge as commander-in chief under free and fair election.

  26. Hi my fellows 4rom d south, what makes U think PDP has been in control and it’s the most popular party in Nigeria? Can’t U see that it had cut across all the barriers U can think of in Nigeria, it’s the only party that has national affiliation and the reason why is, b/cos it is the only party that enshrined in its constitution that idea of giving a southern minority a chance to rule and be heard, if only we’re to be sincere, Gej would’nt have been where he is today if not for the zoning and rotation. How can a sincere gentle man turn blind to an agreement or party constitution to which he’s part and parcel. He will only succeed in destroying the party that made him b/cos of his greediness and divisive xracter. As for me personally iam symphathising with the pioneer’s of PDP.

  27. ‘P’ remature ‘D’ eath ‘P’ arty…. Una don start again?
    Anyway.. weather u like it or not, win or loose, d termite n co owns ur flesh when u r six feet.
    Just practice fidelity!
