Boko Haram: Northern CAN Says Jonathan Has Failed and Should Resign
The Christian Association in Nigerian (CAN) in the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory has faulted President Goodluck Jonathan’s handling of the activities of Boko Haram, saying that the president has failed Nigerians and should resign.
According to CAN, the call on the president is imperative on the grounds that it is very clear that he is not capable of handling the danger posed by the Boko Haram insurgency.
A statement by spokesman of the association Mr. Sunday Oibe said President Jonathan had failed Nigerians and therefore ought to resign.
“With such submissions from the presidency, it further explains why the dreaded Islamic sect has continued to thrive and get away with their murderous acts or are those being killed by the sect, particularly Christians, not members of the Nigerian family,” he said?
While Oibe noted that President Jonathan seems not to understand that the Boko Haram sect is out to destabilize the country and undermine his administration, he said the manifestation of such statement by the president could probably be that he is shielding terrorist group at the expense of the lives of innocent Nigerians that are being killed on a daily basis by the sect.
“Soldiers, police and other security personnel are being killed by Boko Haram members and the president has the effrontery to tell us that these murderers are members of the family and he cannot mobilize the army to deal with them. Even in a family, we know that no responsible family will condone any form of crime or murder and destruction of property,
“It is clear that Jonathan is not bothered about the killing of Christians and other Nigerians. May be the Christians, non Christians and security agents being killed by this sect are not members of this family he is talking about. Jonathan has failed Nigerians and he should resign as president because by this statement, it is very clear that he is not capable of handling the danger posed by the Boko Haram sect,” CAN stated.
