Jonathan, sack these good for nothing Chief Security Officers and reshuffle your Cabinet now...failure is at your peril!

Jonathan: Never man possesses such an immense power, but does not know what to do with it. Pity! Pity! Until this man realises he’s not just the President of Nigeria, but the leader of all persons of African ancestry, pity, pity then.
With respect to the security situation in Nigeria we have for the umpteenth time written editorials suggesting to Government as to what to do. Before the President of Nigeria Goodluck Ebele Jonathan came out belatedly to say Boko Haram had infiltrated his Government, we had warned him in all our editorials that the real Boko Haram are not the band of miscreants carrying bombs, but the promoters of the vested interest of the rotten Oligarchic class of Northern Nigeria, amongst whom are Generals, serving and retired; the traditional rulers; past Heads of State from the North; civil servants; diplomats, serving and retired; business men and women, students; professionals; politicians who failed in the last elections, both national and at States levels: religious leaders; Governors; Senators and Legislators; ministers, etc, etc. So for Jonathan to say Boko Haram had infiltrated his Government is to expose his crass naivety and a lack of understanding of the complexity of the Nigerian polity. In fact, Boko Haram began since 1809 with the founding of the Sokoto Caliphate by Uthman Dan Fodio.
The presence of Boko Haram in Nigerian polity is the reason for Northern domination of the Nigerian polity, the military, the para-military, the civil service, the police, sensitive positions, etc, etc. The entire Nigerian security outfits are Boko Haram, hence the armed forces and the police are not serious in tackling the Boko Haram menace. Boko Haram has been very active in Nigeria since the colonial period. Boko Haram was the reason Britain handed power to the North to occupy until they come back; Boko Haram caused the pogrom of the 60s which led to the civil war; the various censuses conducted in Nigeria have been Boko Haram censuses, hence the North, an arid zone, have more figures allotted to it than the South where people live in clustered settlements compared to the North which live in scattered settlements; Boko Haram led to the partitioning of Nigeria in form of States and Local Government Areas not minding their viability; Boko Haram was the reason for the various coups in Nigeria. They had come in form of Almajiris, Maitasine riots, Zango –Kataf, various killings of Igbos and young Nigerians sent to the North by their fatherland to participate in the National Youth Service Scheme, but taken home dead to their parents from the North; Boko Haram has been the reason for the various religious riots in the North including the Plateau/Jos one which has merely subsided to start very soon.
Boko Haram was the reason Mr Ibrahim Babangida smuggled Nigeria into joining the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation without consulting anyone, not even his then second-in- command Chief of General Staff Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe. And Nigeria has been a registered member since 1986. Boko Haram was the reason Umaru Yar’Adua, Nigeria’s former President was taken to Saudi Arabia for treatment with his bills reportedly paid by the Saudi monarch. Saudi Arabia is an Oil-rich nation like Nigeria!
Boko Haram is the reason why Nigerian rulers of Northern extraction are forming new alliances with the Arab world to the disregard of the circular nature of Nigeria as a polity. Mark my word, the next stage will be to register Nigeria in the League of Arab nations any time they grab power again. And the Igbos of Nigeria will be stupid as not to start putting appropriate machinery in place to rule Nigeria after Jonathan. The North certainly cannot dream of ruling Nigeria after Jonathan in the guise of saying power now is between the South and the North, after all they had held power for upward of forty years out of Nigeria’s 51 years as a nation! If anyone from the North respects justice and wants peace, they should keep quiet until the Igbos of Nigeria have ruled that country like anyone else, before we can at the table of brotherhood decide on the next agenda and the way forward. Wherever our Igbo brothers and sisters are they should get ready to enter Aso Rock after Jonathan. And my advice to them ahead of time is that they MUST bury their differences and present a credible person acceptable to all Nigerians!
In fact, Boko Haram is the reason why the website of the Ministry of External Affairs is currently linked to the website of the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, Boko Haram is the reason why Nigerians have not been able to hold National Conference, hence the Nigeria we have now is MADE IN BRITAIN NIGERIA, instead of having a MADE IN NIGERIA, NIGERIA. Boko Haram was the reason why Kenule Saro Wiwa was killed to satisfy the Oligarchic bunch, etc, etc.
***Because we have a very comprehensive editorial coming up shortly, we shall not go further than this at this time.
In the main time, if Mr Jonathan loves himself he MUST without further delay sack all the services chiefs and reshuffle his Cabinet and get himself new aides.
