President Jonathan Is Afraid Of Boko Haram - Tam David-West

Professor Tam David-West in an interview with Sahara TV, said he was convinced of the fact that President Goodluck Jonathan was indeed afraid of the dreaded Boko Haram sect, the former Minister of Petroleum, not happy with the security situation in the country accused President Jonathan of failing to address the security challenges facing the country.

He insited that it was the fear of Boko Haram that prevented the president from visiting the parents of the abducted Chibok girls, insisting that a visit from the president to the parents of the girls would have gone a long way to boost the psychology of parents and Nigerians

He said Jonathan had no right to seek a second term in office and urged Nigerians to rise against bad governance. He said it was unfortunate that more Nigerians were being abducted by terrorists.

He described as shocking, the takeover of several towns by Boko Haram members.

He said, “Anyone that is complacent about the state of affairs in the country is an enemy of Nigeria. It is a terrible situation and we should be ashamed, President Jonathan should be ashamed. He is the Commander-in-Chief and the number one security officer and citizen of the state.

“Over 200 of your girls taken away from your territory for the past three months and you are still talking. First, you are not even sure, his wife said nothing happened, then he also did not believe that anything happened and later he changed and said he knows where they are. If you say you know where they are, why can’t you save them?

“With all the security forces in the country, you cannot bring them. Our President is afraid of Boko Haram. He claimed they have infiltrated his cabinet and isn’t he ashamed? Since you know they have infiltrated your cabinet, why don’t you expose them?

“Up till now, he has not gone to Chibok and when he made that cosmetic move to see them, he invited the parents to come to Abuja and when they were going, he gave them money which has now been exposed and that is why Boko Haram has been so because they know that the President is weak.”

David-West said even though he is Jonathan’s kinsman, he would not turn a blind eye to the incompetence of his administration.
