"...You see in the case of the Niger Delta militants, the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua sent an airplane to bring them, he sat down with them and discussed with them, they were cajoled and they were given money and granted amnesty.
“They were trained in some skills and were given employment, but the ones in the North were being killed and their houses were being demolished. They are different issues, what brought this? It is injustice.”---- BUHARI-( JUNE 2013).

“Whoever is peddling these rumours that Boko Haram is being granted amnesty and so on, I would ask them who doesn’t want to make peace with the enemy? In any case, as it is proverbially said, all wars end up in the boardroom.
“You can defeat people technically in the field but at the end, you must come to the conference room to resolve all issues. So, if Boko Baram would lay down their arms and stop fighting and stop preaching that negative ideology, the country should be able to embrace them, welcome all of them so that they continue to live normal lives and be useful to the nation,"----- Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity. (APRIL 2018).

The type of politics that is being played in this country is enough to make a dead man who is lying faceup in his grave, to turn himself upside down and even use his hands to cover his face and his ears properly in order to immune itself from the odoriferous political atmosphere that has irredeemably ravaged Nigeria as a country. A type of conscienceless politics that has forced people like me to die permanently in Nigeria and resurrect completely and totally in the spirit of Biafra.

In civilised countries, politicians amongst other things, undergo psychiatric evaluation before they are qualified to contest for any political position. But in Nigeria, what defines your political career is your level of psycho, your rank of terrorism and your unapologetic level of nepotism. Not surprising, few days after kidnapping and returning over a hundred Dapchi girls in grand style amid security escort, the dreaded Boko Haram sect are on the verge of being granted AMNESTY by the Muhammadu Buhari led Nigeria government; and there is veritably nothing anybody can do about it. As days go by, this APC government of Nigeria and Boko Haram terrorists are becoming a march made in heaven. This sudden outburst of their paddy paddy relationship is simply beyond asunder.

If you like weep and cry until blood starts oozing out from your eyes; the simple truth remains that the 'Unchangeable Changer' in Aso Rock or whoever is acting his script has now decided that what is good for Niger Delta militants is also good for his boys in Sambisa forest. He has been doing it informally, but because all fearless  personalities in this country have either been assassinated, kidnapped, silenced or forced into infinite incarceration, the tyrant has now grown wings. Now the naked-dance has been brazenly taken to the market place.
 Let's just leave it here until a reconciliatory party between terrorists and terrorist-sympathizers is announced. You know, there is nothing impossible in Nigeria, including Nigeria breakup.

But before I go, I'll like to remind you that the 'Amnesty-Elect Boko Haram sect' are yet to return Leah, that Dapchi teenager that refused to convert to Islam, neither have they accounted for five other innocent girls that allegedly died in their custody.
In no distant time, an average Almajiri northerner will no longer be begging on the streets; all they need to do is just to sit comfortably in their huts waiting for monthly amnesty stipend for both Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen.
"The only language Nigeria understands is violence," says Nnamdi Kanu; and he can't be more right about it.
