The Boko Haram pandemic which has generated intense agony, anguish and bloodletting since President Jonathan’s victory in the 2011 Presidential election appears to be a pet project of Emirs and the Northern elders. We have kept sealed lips on the rampaging Boko Haram menace in the hope that they would see reason to withdraw from the carnage and tribulation which its activities have unleashed on the hapless and helpless citizens of this much maligned country. Long before the ongoing Boko Haram menace, there were other kindred groups such as b Maitasine, the ELZakzaki group and several others. Perhaps, what makes Boko Haram group spectacular is that there are empirical and cogent facts to lend credence to the fact that the group is a pet project of Northern elders and the Emirs.
It is pertinent to state that the ongoing Boko Haram menace is a fallout of the Fatwa which was made by the Sultan of Sokoto at the meeting of the Northern Traditional Rulers(Emirs) in Kaduna in July, 2007. Perhaps, the verbatim report of the Daily Champion newspaper of July 5, 2007 page 6 on the Sultan’s Fatwa is preferable in order to put the issue in correct perspective. Hear the Daily Champion: ”The Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam(JNI) Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar the 3rd had during a meeting of Northern Emirs at Arewa House in Kaduna last Monday expressed concern over the increasing missionary activities in the country and urged the JNI to take steps to counter the development”.So, it is correct to infer that the dare devin bombings, abductions and related acts peaking at a meeting of Northern Traditional Rulers(Emirs) at Arewa House ,Kaduna State the Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji SA’AD Abubakar the 3rd said that the upsurge of Christian Evangelism in the North is worrisome adding that such spread of Christian faith makes it urgent that the message of Islam should be proclaimed loud and clear. The leader of Nigerian Muslims and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji SA’AD Abubakar the 3rd vowed to counter the overpowering evangelism of the Christian religion in Nigeria(The Leader newspaper of JULY 15,2007 PAGE 1 and The Daily Champion newspaper of JULY 5,2007, PAGES 1&6)So, the ongoing nefarious activities of the Boko Haram is an effort to carry out the directives of their leader, the Sultan of Sokoto and the elite of the North as enunciated in the aforementioned Arewa House meeting.
The ongoing series of indiscriminate bombings culminating in mass deaths is a deliberate plot to spread a contagion of fear and panic around the President and to restrict his movement within Aso Rock. In this way, they hope to defuse the firepower and intensity of the President’s courtesy visits to several parts of the country in readiness for the 2014/2015 electioneering which is due to kick off presently. A content analysis of the reports on the recent spate of bombings shows that the bombings were set off in order to stop or frustrate a presidential visit to some critical events. On the eve of the president’s visit to honour the Olubadan of Ibadan on his 100th birthday anniversary, the Boko Haram hoodlums set off a bomb in Abuja which culminated in mass deaths of innocent citizens.On account of this, they succeeded in frustrating the president’s plan to grace the birthday party with his presence. Her is a need to recall that during the 99th birthday anniversary last year, President Jonathan had promised to personally be in the 100th birthday anniversary. This is why the Boko Haram bloodhounds and vampires preempted the visit by unleashing bombs in highly populated areas with the concomitant fatalities. As a result of this tragedy, the President was not in the 100th birthday anniversary of the Olu of Ibadan. However, he still made the visit the next day.
You may also recall that during the President’s visit to Katsina State recently, the Boko Haram deviants unleashed bombings on the eve of that visit and this culminated into mass fatalities. The intention was to force the President to abort the Katsina visit. The President shocked them when he went ahead to visit Katsina State where he was very warmly received by the government and people of the State. With the exception of the All Progressives Congress (APC) states of Bornu, Yobe and Adamawa where bombing and mass killings have become a routine, most of the bombings in other states were unleashed on the eve or very close to the president’s planned visit to some states or events. So, it is safe to conclude that by spreading a contagion of fear around the president, they’ll succeed to make him a lame duck president in an election year when there is so much to be done. Should the president proceed on such visits , in spite, of the bombings and deaths, they will embark on a propaganda that he is insensitive and uncaring.So, the reason for the upsurge in bombings by the Boko Haram is to render the president politically impotent so that he loses the firepower to execute his electioneering project.
A keen study of the so-called abduction of the Chibok female students in Borno State shows it is a gambit by the APC demagogues and henchmen to slow down the pace of presidential maneuvers ahead of the 2014 election campaigns. The intention is to make it impossible for the President to maximize his opportunities in making critical visitations and flag stops in the build-up to election 2015.It rankles that in a Muslim State, over 70% of the so-called abducted girls are Christians. How could this be justified? The only explanation is that the Chibok saga is a war against Christians by other means. So far, we are told that about ten of the girls escaped from the abductors. If you do a de facto analysis of the girls who were said to have escaped, you’ll find out that they are likely to be children of the big Alhajis who were kidnapped in error. I am now calling on the sponsors of the Boko Haram to release the Christian girls they are holding hostage or the wreath of God will descend on them, after all, nobody can fight God’s battle.
When the South Korean President resigned because of a road mishap in which there were casualties, the National Publicity Secretary of Arewa, sorry, All Progressives Congress and pathological lier, Mallam (LIER) LAI Mohammed, swiftly called on President Jonathan to toe the example of the South Korean Premier and resign. This confirms that the only reason for all the carnage and bloodletting is to force President Jonathan to abdicate the Presidency and nothing more. Of course you recall that in 2011,MallamAdamu Ciroma had warned that they would make the country ungovernable should President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan(GEJ) win. Of course, BUHARI ,the man the columnists of The Daily Sun newspaper lionize and call him such pet names as : Buhari Hurricane, Buhari Tornado, Buhari, the Best Foot of the North, had said in a public function in 2013 that in 2015, the dogs and baboons would stew in their source, should he lose the 2015 election. A short while ago, he threatened that if he was not given the APC presidential ticket, he would quit the APC.

When you juxtapose all the facts together ,you come to the inescapable conclusion that the issue at stake is that the Northern emirs and elite do not want the South to rule Nigeria. Recall how they secretly dragged Nigeria into the Organization of Islamic Countries(OIC) in 1986without the courtesy of informing the then Chief of General Staff(CGS) and second in Command, Navy Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe. Shortly after that misadventure, on Monday, October 6th,1986, they sacked Okoh Ebitu Ukiwe from the military because of the so-called “Abuja Incident”. The real reason for the sack is because he is an Igbo . Also recall that Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, appointed a fellow Northern Muslim, GENERAL Tunde Idiagbon as his second in command. In the entire Nigerian Army, he could not see one Christian General to pair with. Does this not send a message about what lurks in the mind of these people?”Fortunately for the North, they have succeeded in brainwashing some eminent personalities in the South into forgetting their roots. These politicians belong to the group I describe as “Caliphate/Sultanate Politicians”. They remember they are Igbo, Ijaw or Yoruba during elections. Once they are voted into power, they owe their loyalty to the Kaduna/Sokoto Mafia and not to their ethnic origins. That is why you shed tears when people like Professor Tam David West and Governor Rotimi Amaechi are used to undermine President Jonathan 2015 presidential project. In the case of Professor Tam David West, he tells whoever listens that President Jonathan was in the secondary school when he was already a Professor; and so what? What has the age of Methuselah got to do with the wisdom of Solomon? In any case, it is God that gives power; it is not by might, lest anyone should boast. The hostility of Professor Tam David to his kinsman, GEJ, rankles when you recall that he(Prof WEST) has since forgotten his travails in the Mafia Group when he was Minister of Petroleum. He was prosecuted and jailed by the Northern Mafia on the grounds that he had the effrontery to drink tea with the Whites and even had the bravado to accept a gold watch from them. They accused him of a trumped-up charge of enriching a foreign Oil Conglomerate, Stinnes Oil Ltd. It’s a long story for another day. In the case of Governor Rotimi Amaechi, he is a victim of advanced amnesia ,otherwise, he would not have lost sight of the travails of Isaac Adaka Boro and Chief Ken Sarowiwa; both were his kinsmen who were killed by the hegemonic power mongers in the North who see themselves as ‘born to rule Nigeria”. In the fullness of time, he, Amaechi, will take his turn to drink the same hemlock. It’s for the like of Governor Rotimi Amaechi and Professor Tam David West that the great poet, George Santayana, lamented that “Those who do not remember history, will repeat the same mistakes”.
Those who blame President Jonathan on the upsurge of the Boko Haram menace are misguided and gullible people who cannot think on their own. They swallow hook, line and sinker the propaganda of the pro-Buhari boys in the Press (e.g. The Nation and The Daily Sun). The crux of the matter is that the North has since vowed not to be ruled by the South-whether the Southerner is a Muslim is immaterial. This is why the Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida(retd) annulled the most free and fairest election of June 12th, 1993 when Chief Abiola, a Southern Muslim, won the poll. If the candidate of the National Republican Convention (NRC) , Alhaji TOFA, a Northern Muslim , had won that poll, IBB would not have annulled the election. In order to buttress this point, Alhaji Sani Kontagora, a Muslim irredentist caused a stir in a press chat with the editors of TELL Magazine when in answer to a question, he screamed:”Southerners can’t Rule Us….”. The full interview was published in the TELL Magazine of July 8, 1996 Page 9.
In the same vein, in an interview with The African Guardian of August 8th, 1994 Page 13, Umaru Dikko screamed:”WE ARE READY FOR WAR”. So, the Muslims of the North had long prepared for this Boko Haram War. It’s their option B should a Southerner become President of Nigeria. They planned to start it in the administration of Chief Obasanjo, hence they first introduced Sharia Government in Zamfara State in 1999- a clear violation of the Constitution. However, being a man endowed with immense native wisdom, President Obasanjo simply ignored them. There was a limit to what they could do under Obasanjo’s watch because he was too rugged and deadly for childish pranks. Just two months after Chief Obasanjo left office and a Muslim, Musa Yar’Adua, became President, the Sultan of Sokoto had the courage to mobilize the Muslims to stop Christian Evangelism in the North when he addressed Northern Emirs and Elders as discussed above. Also recall that although the Constitution classifies Nigeria as a secular State, Nigeria was smuggled into the Organization of Islamic Countries(OIC) in 1986.
On the strength of the points canvassed above, it is my recommendation that President Jonathan should call in the United States to deploy their drones in the troubled APC States of the North East .A Drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle(UAV).It is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. Its flight is controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle. A drone is a very highly sensitive military craft that has the capability of detecting its targets accurately and thereafter release bombs and missiles to destroy such targets with computerized accuracy. Once the U.S drones take over the air space of Nigeria, the Boko Haram group and their sponsors will surrender or be blown to smithereens. With its state of the art intelligence and surveillance capabilities, the U.S drones will detect the place/s where the Chibok Girls are kept and the U.S Seals who killed Osama bin Laden can finish the task in a jiffy. We need the U.S drones now!
President Jonathan should impose full emergency rule in the three states while the other three states should be under scrupulous surveillance in order to ensure that the terrorists do not flee to those other States when the U.S Drones commence its fusillade of sorties on the hideout of the criminals. The idea of exchanging Boko Haram Prisoners of War(POW) to the release of the Chibok Girls is not an option. Nobody will accord them that honour because they and their godfathers are cowards and little minds. If they were really rugged, they would have captured some Nigerian soldiers in return, not harmless Chibok girls. In that case, we can even exchange one Nigerian soldier to 100 Boko Haram The Israeli MOSSAD must be moved in to work with the U.S Seals and Marines in order to smoke the terrorists out from their comfort zones.
There is a need for the various ethnic Militia Groups in the South of Nigeria to decide if it is proper for the South to continue to cohabit with a specimen of humankind who are so mean and parasitic that they can abduct little girls in their sleep and take them to the jungle. Must we live together with a group of people who are so unconscionable to bomb motor parks in broad daylight? they go to Churches and massacre those who have gone to commune with the Supreme Deity.; they sneak into male secondary schools under cover of darkness and massacre the male students and whisk the females away. For how long will the tree of Nigerian unity be watered by the blood of Christians? Is the Christian Concept of Protestant Ethics not incompatible and incongruous with the Muslim concept of Fatalism? Are the two concepts not mutually exclusive? There is something intrinsically absurd in a situation where the leader of Muslims in Nigeria and the Emirs are not able to rein in the impunity and anarchy of a section of their subjects. In the same way non-performing politicians can be recalled, I deem it wise that those Emirs /EZES/OBAs who have lost relevance among their subjects should be dethroned or suspended in order to inject sanity in the system. We need the U.S Drones/Israeli MOSSAD now.
In conclusion, those who still doubt that the BOKO Haram is a pet project of the Emirs and Northern Elders should listen to the late Sheikh Gumi, a revered Islamic scholar before he died. Hear Sheik Gumi: “Christianity does not mean anything. On Sundays, you only go to listen to songs. Christianity is a religion for young people who cannot reason. If we want Nigeria to be a good country, we have to follow one faith (Islam).I don’t think we can accept a Christian to be our leader unless we are forced. The only alternative of having a Christian as a leader is for the country to be split” (Newswatch,September 28,1992:54).Although Sheik Gumi has since passed on, his doctrine that ”A Christian cannot rule Nigeria” is still ubiquitous and pervasive among the Emirs and Northern Emirs. This is the genesis of the Boko Haram menace. It was the Northern Premier and Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello KBE, who once told the Great Zik : “Let us understand our differences first” in reply to DR Nnamdi Azikiwe’s plea that “We should forget our differences”. So, the political leaders of the South as well as the various militia groups therein must understand the genesis of the Boko Haram menace in order to have an option B. The global community is anxiously waiting on the South of Nigeria to articulate what they really want the World to do now.. It was Victor Hugo who once said: “There is something greater than all the armies in the world and that is an idea whose time has come”. This is our chance.
