Charles Novia Weighs In On Ultimatum by Northern Leaders for GEJ



Charles Novia - August 2014 - BN News - 01
On Monday, Northern leaders declared that they are giving President Jonathan an ultimatum till the end of October to bring back the over 200 school girls abducted in the Chibok area of Borno state by Boko Haram and failure to do so means he is not fit to seek a re-election in 2015.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President, Doyin Okupe released a statement a day later, stating that the commander-in-chief does not need the threats by the faction to bring back the girls.

Opinionated Nigerian filmmaker Charles Novia is also speaking out on the topic.

    How is he opinionated? Everyone is entitled to an opinion.
    I like how he said the only way to stop the president is through the ballot box. YES!
    We need to realize this is 2014. We can’t keep acting like we’re running a traditional clan. Where did these people get their sense of entitlement even?
    And Nigerians love microwave work. When they can see everything you are doing? Real development especially where they has been none for a while takes time. The foundations have to be laid. You wouldn’t automatically start reaping the benefits

    I completely agree with him. If you don’t want Jonathan, then don’t vote for him. These so-called Northern elders have been silent for most of the reign of Boko Haram and now they want to give ultimatums to the president? How many times have they condemned the killings of all those innocent Nigerians? I’m not a fan of a lot of things that Jonathan has done but he is STILL the President and deserves that respect. If a fellow Northerner was in office, would they be giving ultimatums? What are they doing to find the girls? Very soon now Jonathan will be blamed because a woman burnt her pot of soup. We as citizens have to help ourselves too. Everything boils down to them and their belief that leadership of the country is their birthright.

    Only the ballot boxes can remove a president. If I may ask you Northern leaders where were your voices when your religion was hijacked by extremists? None of you came out to condemn or seek solution to the looming threats, now its out of hand you dare come out to give ultimatum . Why don’t you give ultimatum to every northerner that aids, helps or volunteers for BK . Nah una no try I no like uncle Jona but those states have chief executive and are their responsibility is to govern their states maybe if jona put a full emergency rule in place in the northern states that have BK threats maybe the girls would have been found.
