May 23, 2013 – Buhari Calls For President Jonathan’s Resignation “Step Down For Competent Hand To Rule”

Former Head of State General Muhammadu Buhari has advised President Goodluck Jonathan to resign from office for his inability to tackle the security challenges facing the country.

“Jonathan should vacate and give way to competent hand to govern the country”, he said.

Speaking to newsmen in his residence in Daura town yesterday, General Buhari said the issue of security is a fundamental duty of any responsible government, but Jonathan failed to protect the lives and the properties of Nigerians since he assumed power.

“When the Niger Delta militants started their activities in the South-South, they were invited by the late President Umaru Yar’adua.

An aircraft was sent to them and their leaders met with the late President in Aso Rock and discussed issues. They were given money and a training scheme was introduced for their members. But when the Boko Haram emerged in the north members of the sect were killed,” General Buhari lamented.

“And when the police failed to address the insurgency, soldiers were invited and they captured the Boko Haram leader, Muhammad Yusuf alive and handed him over to police. But Yusuf was eventually killed, his in-law too was killed and their houses were demolished”, he said.

He said the murder of the Boko Haram leader however provoked his followers and that was what led the country to its present situation. He suggested that government should adopt a new approach that will end the insurgency without affecting the lives and properties of innocent people.

“In Bama and Baga towns, military personnel were reported to have been engaged in extortion and sometimes Molesting of women. And because a soldier was killed in Baga the whole town was sacked by military. This is not the best way military should have acted when they were sent to restore law and order in a town. How can a responsible government allow its people to be killed in this way,” he asked.

He warned that the police, SSS, army, navy and Air force should know how to conduct themselves and act professionally.

“The soldiers are not expected to go and sack a town because one of them is killed. They are expected to capture the culprits for prosecution. After all the soldiers are not meant to tackle internal crisis but when it is necessary they should act professionally.

“Whoever is sent to protect people should also protect their integrity. When the former England’s Prime Minister, Margret Thatcher decided to hold its political meeting in Brighton the security advised her to cancel the meeting because of the IRN rebellions, but she insisted and held the meeting. The hotel she was accommodated was bombed and some of her political associates were killed but soldiers did not condone the area and kill everybody there, rather they conducted themselves professionally,” Buhari said.

  1. Gen. Buhari has now finally shown dat he is d brain behind dis Boko Haram of a thing. How can he equate d crises caused by d Boko haram sect 2 the 1 of the Niger Deltans. Firstly, MEND’s actions is very justifiable cos dey were fighting for their right. Their land was being damaged, their water contaminated n their crops were endangered. Yet, al dis went on without due compensation for having their lands explored. Secondly, they only asked 2 be in control of their natural resourses, which is a normal thing anywhere in the world. Now, what on earth can any sane person say that Boko haram is fighting for? Boko haram’s modus operandi is very different from that of MEND. They focused their operation in the killing n burnin of d innocent citizenry, bombing churches n govt. properties. Wot is justifiable in their deadly operations? Wot sort of amnesty should be granted to people whose hearts have been seared with evil?. Are they to be granted amnesty for killing n burning innocent citizens or better stil, applaud them by giving them national honours for the mayhem they have unleashed on people.
    Boko Haram deserves nothing more than wot they are now getting from the millitary PERIOD.

    • Whatever names they called themselves or whatever point of view they hold, illegality/criminality cannot and should not be used to jeopardize the safety and rights of others. Things are going in the wrong directions in this country and we say we are a sovereign nation. Can anyone tell me what a real sovereign nation is and should Nigeria call herself sovereign when national security is nothing to write home about? Below is a link to the description of what soverign nation is http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Sovereign+nation

      • The problem should also be attributed to the FG inability to call for National Dialogue to address the issues of this country. Hausa man and their selfish leaders would only sit up wen they know what they stand to lose if the country should stop to exist as one nation. But bcos FG is afraid of them, compensating them for act of terror and treason, they’ll keep forming one religious sect and the other to frustrate peace loving Nigerians. Now, those caught in this emergency rule in the north are freed as ordered by FG; all the ruins are to be repaired by tax payers’ money, Southern oil money. Why wont they kill and destroy more? What are we not talking about? If we have president that is smart, buhari and co wud have been in prison long time ago. Itz a pity.

  2. it is bcos the boko’s r now facing wahala n they wll by God’s grace be brouth down,that’s what’s makin him 2 say all these brainwashed,fanatical gist,buari we all know that u r a boko haram.go 2 hell burn 2 ashes people like u r suppose 2 be in hell by now.i hate buari wit all passion,if God so like peace wll comeback 2naija but u wll perishe wt ur evil deeds.devil agent!, u wll never rule this nation again.

    • yusuf 4get abt religion and face reality,kidnapn and bombing are nt the same. Do u knw how many souls boko haram hv killed recently? Over 2000 souls and u got the mouth to suport buhari? If bombing is nothn may it hapen to u ok.

  3. Indeed gudluck is incapable nt only on d aspect of national security bt in all d entire national issues and sectors.., @ chris james, wat can u say to d high rate of youth unemployment? Corruption? Kidnapping?

    • Yusuf, what is kidnapping and robbery compared to the irresponsible killing and maiming of thousands of christians by your bokoharam just becos they want the country to be ungovernable for an Ijaw president? Just think about it. Robbery and kidnapping is nothing compared to the crime your people have committed against Christians and other people in the north. To worsen it, you guys hire Niger and Chad millitants to snuff live off your fellow citizens. It’s a shame.

  4. That is exactly what buhari plan..he is more than the brain behind boko haram..buhari is evil..God will total expose u one day.

  5. Buhari is the leader of boko haram he need to brought to book, if am the president i will kill buhari along side with his members, buhari ur noting but a slut, just thank God am not the president by now u would have been a dead man, buhari were u not invited and for settlement do u accept the offer ingreat like u shut that ur filty mouth because u deserve death.

  6. Dis buhari 4 long has shown him self as the BOKO HARAM leader is just that nigeria is a LAWLESS country,and our present president is a slugish man, how i wish i can bring back baba OBASANJO he is the one that can handle this useless desendant of ISHMAIL that beheav like the RAM they use 4 thie NAMING CEREMONY,i am from K.D but i regreat finding my self among this animals.

  7. Chris you are right. Can you imagine what he is saying, that jonathan should step down for a capable hand to rule. If i may ask, who is the capable person? Or is aso rock an inheritance for the northerners? Or when the millitants were killing did they kill any hausa,muslim or burn any mosque? Be careful because look at your reward before you.

  8. Gen buhari you are mad man you the brain behind this killing you father and mother made a very big mistake for bring you into this world you sholud be an animal like rat or insect like ant and fly fool i hate you, you will soon die

  9. Buhari
    u Can go to HELL and Burn to Ashes. Your people Boko Haram claimed they will make Nig ungovernable for President Jonathan. The aim has always been to get him out of power for a northerner to rule. WAKA dia. Who says Presidency is only for the North?
    If you are not happy about equal share of presidency let the south and east go their seperate ways without bood shed of possible and lets see how the North can survive on tomato and groundnuts. IDIOT thats what you are
    GET LOST

  10. u guys should abuse buhari all u want but lets come to think of it,is buhari not saying d fact?how can a good government send soldiers to be killing her people and call it a state of emergency?Jonathan is a failed president,he really should step down for someone capable to rule but not buhari

  14. Haaahahaha.. lol…. hohhehehehaha. Buhari, buhari. Father of bokoharam! You have finally opened up. Hahahaha. Why FG cant arrest these these fathers of the terrorists is what I dont understand. Anyway, for those who have been canvassing 4 buhari, I’m sure he has opened up who he really is: a sect, bokoharam and hausa leader, not a national leader.

  15. I pity this good for nothing animal or almajiri that calls himself buhari,whose father had sworn that he will never rule this nation again bcos of his disobedience to him.The God of christians is going to visit that your allah u mention every minute and we shall see who is more powerful. You are behind the insecurity we have in this country today, and you sit there full with fura & Nono in your stomach to talk rubbish. you and your colleagues (loosers of elections forever) should go to hell and burn to ashes, moreso go to that your aljanna that bears a female name called FIRDAUSI in the language you do not understand (ie arab language) and be the president to those your seventy virgins. The population is large enough to have a president,so go there and rule them.

    • @agnes……. Pls a true christian do not talk the way u commented.do we have christian God and Muslim God? In issues of national interest u ought to let sense people address it than ignorants like u who tanishes the christians image.be sensible nx time if u want to comment o national issues rather than de chaf u spit out…….racist!!!!!

  16. instead of Buhari should talk to his brothers for them to stop the killing of christains come to think of it the are destroying their own land and killing their own brother cus i dont that every sucide bomb killing that nsome of their brothers will die also.let me ask this question since thirty four year 34 that the northern has rule is their anything like boko haram no is just because the east side have enter the sit that is why the want to bring jonathan down to say during his regime boko haram destroy Nigeria wether Jonathan is during his Work or not he must go for second terno cus all those who rule Nigeria was on that sit for eight year if Buhair like it or not He should tell their brothers to stop this kill and he will see that Jonathan will be a perfect leader.

  17. Buhari or whatever he call’s himself should be in prison with his Boko Haram menbers he is the leder of bokos,,And he is be biggest fool to compare himself with GEJ,,, what do he has to offer nigerians,, to use tax peyer money to suponos boko haram,,,,After all this yrs in power the only thing they can boast of is poverty in the north,,shame to u Buhari

  18. I have always known Buhari to b a stupid sentimental moron, Yar’adua instructed d military to attack Boko haram hide out in Borno, Yar’adua was d president when deir leader moh’d yusuf was killed, so wat is dis dummy Buhari saying, I think dat man is crazy, foolish loser like U, very soon Boko boys will hunt him even though he is deir member!!!!

  19. We shuld always watch our utterances,especially when it comes to a national sensitive issues. Nigeria can only be better when we forget abt religion,ethnicities & political afflict.

  20. It is so unfortunate that animals like Buhari still exist in this planet. I think what former President of Ghana JJ Rowlings did to their past leaders should be done to this our past leaders so that Nig will be at peace.

  21. Haba, Buhari (which means in my nativ Igbo language: carry about) wier’s ur sense of reasonin? u tink naija’s ur toy 2 play around wit,,wen u had d chance 2 rule naija,wat did u do wit it? if we as a nation hav problems 2day,did u not kontribut 2 it?,,,,,,nemesis neva wil fail 2 catch up wit u & ur cohorts who has vowed naija wil knw no peace.Let me tel u,naija’s biger dan u & ur evil planners put 2geda,,,,God hav not 4saken naija.Just a mata of tym,u’ll hav ur reward!!!

  22. Oh!Buhari Oga Boko Haram I knw is u all d while,but u knw what d soldiers are still very much around,b/coz dey refuse u to rule dat is why u kill innocent people through Boko Haram,u will neva rule and ur Boko Haram member will all be killed. Wicked beast.

  23. Buhari is a frustrated MAD man! He should take his competency to his family n rule. As far as the president is not an Hausa man, we love n appreciate him. All buhari’s and other northerners efforts to frustrate him is in vain. Its even better we try dividing Nigeria between north and south. Let’s how those animal called Hausa will survive. Fools….

  24. finaly finaly the brian behide the insecurity is gradually comming out,the devil itself can no longer bear the pain of his children being kill and arrested (boko haram) Buhari is the cause of the trouble we are witnessing today God will judge you.

  25. Buhari try everymeans to distablize the president but he has fail and he will continue to fail, he always think he is the right man for the job,i pity yr supporters thy dont no who thy are dealing with,Buhari is a snake in green grass be warn!!!!

  26. Hahahaha. Hehehahahaa. Buhari, buhari. You have finally opened up who you are: leader of bokoharams and terrorists. Whenever the wind blows, buhari’s stuff shows. I wonder why the FG has refused oris afraid to arrest Buhari and co. In so many countries Buhari would have been cooling his feet in prison. For those rooting for buhari, now you know who he is; he is the most unfit to rule this nation because he is a fanatical sect leader not a national leader.

    Naijagists.com, I wonder why you refused to publish my write up.

  27. Buhari is a big fat fool! God will not allow u to live to see 2015.Hungary almajiri that has caused problems to Nigerians through Boko Haram.Live Jonathan alone to rule Nigeria as was initially planned. Nama!!!

  28. It is unfortunate,a dissapontment for a former head of state[though a coup plotter]to be defending these devils. Called boko haram.Asking Good Luck to resign is not my problem after all he has refused to proof his competency ,but defending the satanic being -boko haram it is a shame.Buhari has actualy not hide his hatred for xtian religion,for about his political gimmick and his desperation to be president that made him to visit redeemption camp..the man is a fanatics.if not for the incompetency of the man without shoe ,why should anyone be thinking of the presidency going to the land of Boko haram come 2015.

  29. BUHARI PLEASE YOU SHOULD SHOTUP,THE NIGERIA ARMY ARE DOING A GOOD JOB, BUHARI FELT IT,BECAUSE HIS BOYS BOKO HARAM ARE ON THR RUN, GOOD JOB 9JA ARMY,AIR FORCE,NAVY, THAT IS WHY HE IS SHUOTING,HE’S A MAD MAN.
