Invite Goodluck Jonathan for Questioning – Northern Clerics urge Security Agencies

by on February 7, 2017

Northern clerics have condemned comments made by former President Goodluck Jonathan last week in a meeting with the United State congress where Jonathan described the religious crisis in the Northern part of the country is reckless and unpatriotic.

The national chairman of the Middle Belt Patriotic Front Musa Fomson urged security agencies to invite the former president for questioning.

Fomson said ;  “It was the mindlessness of his administration that amplified the schism to a point where persons that were once neutral learnt to hate adherents of other faiths. It was Goodluck Jonathan that made religion and ethnicity into campaign issues in order to cover the incompetence of his rule in the quest for re-election”. 

 “Ill advised romance with the then President of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, who even ran errand as weapons buyer, was instrumental to reducing Christendom into the current level where whatever CAN has to say is being second guessed.

He added that; Jonathan failed to tell his US audience that killers herdsmen would not be on rampage and occupy the position of the fourth deadliest group in the world if he and his aides had not stolen the money meant for buying weapons to defeat Boko Haram.

“Several of his aides, like Ankio-Briggs have stopped short of endorsing the war these militants are waging against the Nigerian state. His speech before the US House Committee stopped short of doing same by anchoring the attacks on oil export infrastructure on resource control”.

“If the former president thinks we have forgotten his foot soldiers and multiple persons from the Niger Delta threaten to make the country ungovernable should he lose the 2015 election, which he glaringly lost because of his serial failures and rejection by Nigerians,” he said.

“If Goodluck Jonathan truly loves Nigeria, he must immediately stop all his subversive activities like the speech he made before the US House Committee in which he usurped the role of a sitting government by negotiating a US intervention.

“He must speak with all his cronies to return all monies stolen from Nigeria, whether it was the one meant for arms purchase, stolen from crude oil sales or foreign loans that were channeled into their personal pockets.

“He must ask his militants in the Niger Delta and their proxies operating as separatists in the south-east to immediately cease hostilities against the Nigerian state.

He also added Jonathan’s coded call for Niger Delta militants to scale up attacks is well noted when he (Goodluck Jonathan) said ;
“Also, the military crackdown in the Niger Delta will not end the agitation there. It will have the opposite effect of provoking the youths which will cause them to seek to acquire sophisticated weapons to defend themselves and their communities.

This may in turn lead to secessionist movements and the reincarnation of the Isaac Jasper Adaka Boro led revolution and the Biafran civil war.”

    If truly this statement emanate from Northern Clerics,it means either they are myopic or they have nothing in their skulls. How could someone in his or her right senses compare the leadership of GEJ with hardship we are facing under clueless sets of APC administration. Our problem is not the president, our problem is that the cabal in the government of the day highjacked the system for their self aggrendizement just as the first lady accused. Why should you continue complaining about the past? You promised change but finally, we are at the negative side of the change mantra. If you can’t solve the problem, quit before we all die.

    it is very childish when somebody failed instead of accepting the responsibility that he has failed, he will start looking for who to blame. If at all that it is the northern clerics that said this then, it is unfortunate. Jonathan’s government favored the north more than any other region in this country. i think they should concentrate their thinking on how to solve the present issues and leave the past alone.
