Why Is President Jonathan Fighting Boko Haram ‘6 Weeks To Election’ – Nneka Egbuna Tells CNN

During a recent interview on CNN, Nigerian German singer Nneka Egbuna talked about her displeasure with President Goodluck Jonathan over the way he handled insurgency in Nigeria.

She said herself and some other musicians like Seun Kuti are not very happy with the way GEJ handled the Boko Haram issue.

Nneka challenged Goodluck Jonathan for fighting the insurgents late when he could have wiped them out a long time ago.

In her words:

“He [Goodluck Jonathan] says he wants to tackle Boko Haram, obviously every Nigerian is asking why now, he could had done it a long time ago… I’m not good at the whole blaming game, I don’t want to blame anybody but I pray that he comes up with a good idea for us if he is an honest and genuine guy. But I know that Fela [Kuti] would definitely not be cool with him if he was here, Seun [Kuti] is not cool with him, I and many other socially conscious musicians who are very outspoken are not cool with him”.

She raised a very valid point.

Why didn’t President Jonathan take this battle serious all this while, why six weeks to the election.. It is pure politics to deceive Nigerians.

  1. It is a pity African leaders lead only for their pockets. These black niggas have no vision for their people that is why people living in countries like Nigeria are still subjected to poverty

    • Tokunbo or whatever you call yourself, you need to be more respectful but I suppose you cannot give what you do not have.

  2. The citizens and security forces will have the opportunity to dismiss Mr Goodluck Jonathan. He lacks sensible leadership qualities and should not be returned to the legislature. He should be impeached for having failed to take concrete steps to suppress the insurgency. He has had several years to do it, but he his action reveals that he is not qualify to lead Nigeria. Waiting until a few minutes to tackle the hooligans is comparable to a groom waiting until a few days before his wedding to order his suit.

    If any of his daughters were among the schoolgirls kidnapped, I doubt that the President would have been so passive. He has sent his children into hiding in England–according to news reports–while the children of the poor and others suffer the wrath of the hooligans. Mr Goodluck Jonathan must go!

  3. Abeg where I can finding this fine girl? I am want her to teaching me German. I have sabi English. Now is German I want to sabi.

  4. I prefer my bingo to this bitch, nneka egbuna u are a disgrace to ur parents, do u know what terrorist is all about ?

  5. @Nneka, I resent ppl dat grants interviews and comments on issues they r totally naïve of. In ur water filled brain u refuse 2 undstand dat terrorism was alien 2 Nigeria and security agencies. We wr cot by surpriz & d govt needed 2 train our armed forces 4 counter-terrorism combat. Then d issue of purchasing arms from countries dat wr happy wt d insurgents. Thanks 2 Russia & Isreal dat came 2 our rescue lately. Election or no election

  6. You have a good point Nneka , Jonathan is using fighting against boko haram for political game and his plan cannot work.

  7. Nneka good questn, terorist was orchestrated by northern cabals, dat s why dey complain d first time boko haram was crush even buhari said soldiers r killin poor cattle rearers goin abt dia biz, secondly anoda reason was dat military equipment was dilapidated so wen d president ask 4 loan, d house of reps delayed n wen it was release america did nt wnt to sell dia weapons to our military, dat led d federal govt. To look elsewia dis time russia n ukraine who took abt some months to sell n sent d equipments dat s why u r nw seein d results, thirdly dia was colaboratn wit africans leaders around nigeria, whch s chad, cameroon, n niger, whch d letter accepted recently dat s why u r seein d result….so my sister if u dnt knw wat s wrong in nigeria knw dat jona hv d masses at heart all dis killings n bok haram s orchestrated by northern cabals, to frustrate GEJ admin. We can see in 2011 buhari even confess to make nigeria ungovernable so if u knw was s right 4 u vote GEJ or tk nigeria bk to period of cabals

    • My friend, abeg *****.Would you av said dis if your family members were victims of Boko haram bomb explosions?.Mumu.

  8. Nneka is right. Is the president just waking up. Thousands of people has been slaughtered by these boko haram and it is now that election has come that the president suddenly realize he will do something. Who is he fooling by the way. Clueless president with blind followers.

  9. Another election gimmick by Jonathan. The only two reasons he is now “fighting” Boko Haram that he referred to as “our siblings” or our “brothers and sisters” recently, is either (1) to delay the election date further by saying we are busy fighting Boko Haram and not ready for elections now or (2) to make people believe he is an efficient President (bullshit)!. Don’t be fooled, all these propaganda is a cover. All this government has achieved is looting the treasury. God have mercy on Nigeria!

  10. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Jonathan is the most incompetent President Nigeria ever had. He knew what was at stake before taking the seat, it was voluntary, nobody forced him to do it. He is as senseless and clueless as his wife. Nothing that comes out of his mouth makes sense, in a country with world acclaimed intellectuals like Professors Wole Soyinka and Chinua Achebe. Nigeria is now the laughing stock for the world as our President talks like someone who just came out of the pub after drinking his brains out. So please allow those that know how do the job and leave with dignity.

  11. Nneka is right, am a son of a millitary man counter terorism training is nt more dan 3month. Wat has GEJ been doing dt is nw bcos of election he is fighting BH. He shud go nd stop deceiving Nigerian bcos his daughter is nt among dos chibok girls or his brother is nt among dos soldiers dt died in maiduguri. Nonsence.

  12. what is the difference between Democratic government and Military government? Do u want GEJ to become a tyrant? or a democratic president?

  13. Im just curious why must Jona suporters comment abusively..it reflects the entire PDP campaign strategy..insult other people and balame them for failures. Show me one Jonathan supporter that is able to articulate rationally and intelligently, why he should be re-elected.
    Just look at the comment trail here…all the abusive comments are from Jonathan supporters. what a shame!
