BUHARI: THE ADVOCATE OF BOKOHARAM.

BUHARI: THE ADVOCATE OF BOKOHARAM.

(For Family Writers)

The Nigeria and foreign media have been awashed with reports of President Muhammad Buhari shunning the United Nations meeting to tackle BokoHaram. The meeting was convened to discuss and proffer solution to the problem of refugees caused by BokoHaram and was chaired by UN aid chief Stephen O'Brien. The meeting had in attendance Chad, Niger, Cameroon and also, US and EU diplomats but Nigeria the origin of BokoHaram menace was conspicuously missing and was not represented. The Nigeria President's spokesperson was quick to lie to the world by claiming the meeting was "unofficial".

During the presidential campaigns, Buhari promised to "spare no effort" to defeat BokoHaram and also gave a month deadline. Vice President Prof Yemi Osibanjo in a town hall meeting in Abuja during the presidential campaign said "The first priority is security and to question what has gone wrong in the military. Then funding the military adequately and ensuring that the Commander-In-Chief leads from the front. But when he was Commander-In-Chief, Buhari led from the front as a soldier. You cannot lead from the rear. You cannot fail to go to where the insurgency is taking place and that is what Buhari has been saying".

Four months after getting the Presidential post, none of those promises has been carried out. Instead, Buhari has offered amnesty to the murderers,kidnappers and rapists, which they have vehemently rejected but insisted on Islamisation of the country. The Nigeria military is busy posting pictures and making statements on social media while BokoHaram has increased the killing and destruction of Christians and their properties. These are clear indication of the sympathy and love Buhari has for his brothers fighting for a Sharia state and his lack of seriousness to tackle them.

In 2001 at an Islamic seminar in Kaduna, Buhari was given an opportunity to choose between Nigeria's secularism and fundamentalist Islam, this is what he said: "I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria", he also added that "God willing,we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of Sharia in the country".

In Daily Sun newspaper of Sunday,8th August 2010, Buhari was granted an interview on the coming election. He was asked "Do you fear for the country that if we do not get it right now...?" The interviewer did not complete the question before Buhari interjected, saying: "There may be no Nigeria..,because I draw parallel with Somalia so many times; Somalia-sation of Nigeria, I am scared about that."

Junaid Muhammad, a member of the Northern Political Leaders' Forum [NPLF] and a vocal voice for Muhammad Buhari's government in an interview granted to The Guardian on 2nd November 2010, was asked what would happen if Goodluck Jonathan was selected as the PDP presidential candidate for the 2011 polls. He said angrily: "There would be violence. First,the PDP would never be the same again. People would desert the PDP in droves; secondly the North is not going to take it hands down; I want to assure that I want you to hold me to this after seeing the way events shape."

In April 2011,after losing the presidential election to Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari threatened to make the country ungovernable and incited the violence that led to the death of members of National Youth Service Corps [NYSC] most of them Christians from the South that were posted to the North. Buhari never cautioned the radical groups that always shouted his name when perpetuating their evil.

The Northern elites remained silent while BokoHaram metamorphosed into a more deadlier,coordinated and well equipped group and began to destabilize the country and also chose Muhammad Buhari as its negotiator. Buhari rejected negotiation and on the 3rd of June 2013 on ThisDay Live said: "Military Offensive against BokoHaram,Anti-north."

David Cameron,Barack Obama and other World leaders and the United Nation should not pretend or claim ignorance of the fact that President Muhammad Buhari is one of the boardroom voice of Sharia which emboldens members of BokoHaram that has pledged allegiance to ISIS and is now officially named ISWAP.
