Boko Haram Planned to Attack Whole Country After Abuja – Pres. Jonathan

Published

 on

Goodluck JonathanPresident Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday said various attacks by Boko Haram in Abuja were planned to extend to parts of the country with the intention of bringing down the nation.

He stated this when he attended the revival service of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement at its headquarters in Ijesha, Lagos.

“The idea of the group was to start from the centre of the country and then move to bring the whole country down,’’ Jonathan said.

He listed the United Nation’s building, Police Headquarters, Army barracks market and Nyanya Motor Park as some of the places the terrorist organisation attacked in the federal capital.

He, however, said that the efforts of the Federal Government had curtailed the spread of the attacks to other parts of the country, except in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.

The president said that insurgency and terrorism were global phenomena that were not peculiar to Nigeria, but added that with international collaboration, the Armed Forces would defeat the extremists.

We are working hard as a government and with your cooperation, we will eliminate terrorism.

We will work harder to protect all Nigerians. We will improve the economy so that people will have jobs so that these distractions about terror will end,’’ he said.

He thanked members of the church and the Christian community in the country for their intercessory prayers and urged them not to relent.

“We believe we should not campaign in churches but I am here to thank the General Overseer and members of the church for what you are doing.

Your spiritual work has not only helped members of the church but helped the country,’’ Jonathan said.

The General Overseer of the church, Pastor Lazarus Muoka, led the congregation through intercessory prayers for God “to bless the nation with unity, peace and stability’’.

The faithful also prayed to God to give the president good health and strength to continue to prosper the nation.
They also prayed for pre-election and post-election peace in the country and for the Lord to protect and preserve the president to enable him to achieve national prosperity.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      A clueless witch doctor have spoken again, and you will continue to be disgraced in this life and the life to come.
      Now for those who are still running rats for Dumb and clueless, heartless and shameless President Jonathan. You can hear this from the horses mouth, let the fouls tell me that this did not happen.

      Have you all also learnt that Allison Madueke has ordered NNPC to refund the Federation, wonders shall never end. How can a Minister of Petroleum order her agency/Ministry to refund the government? Only in Nigeria.

      People and fellow Nigerians, this is what we have on our table now, Jonathan must be voted out because he is fraud, soulless, wicked, brutish, clueless, foolish and horrible.

      They have sabotaged Nigerians and blackmailed Jega INEC to postpone the election hoping that Jonathan can force an interim government, we are getting ready, it will not happen, we will mobilize Nigerians like ever before, no one will suppress us and i am ready to spill my blood in defence on my Nigeria. This wickedness must stop, we must stand and defend the honor of Nigeria, Jonathan and his criminals think that they can make us cower and let them have a free ride, impossible,it will not happen.

      Shame on you Jonathan and all your armies, Nigerians has rejected you, the gods arr angry with you and they have made you mad, the next is to crush you finally. You will be shamed in such a way that you have never been in your entire life, all your armies must have you say in court and must be jailed.

      Okonjo Iweala, Stella Odua, Allison Madueke, Oronto Douglas, Hassan Tukur, Kennedy Opara, Patience Jonathan, Obanikiro, and many more to be listed must serve your time in Jail.

      All the people making stupid comments here are fools, u tink u kw d system bt u dnt. Wat ur parents don’t even understand is wat u all tink u kw wit ur empty heads. If GEJ is nt good point sum1 better cos as far as I kw Buhari is nt better. He is nt fit to replace GEJ cos he is worse. After so many years pple seem to hv 4gotten d bad tins buhari did, suddenly he is a messiah abi b’cos boko haram didn’t exist den. And y’all must kw dat naija is nt d only country experiencing terrorist attacks daily yet we’ve nt heard any news abt dere citizens insultin dere president, it only happens in naija. Any1 dat doesn’t hv anytin reasonable to say rather dan insultin d president shld go n read newspapers or a book to help d brain.

      Wait, is BH not sponsored by Jonathan himself? I know well placed people who have evidence he is…he will be revealed at just the right time. PDP’s fear tatics has been played out. There is an Ace coming and there is nothing he can do about it. Removing Jega will not help him-they feel this is do or die. Well, we are on the “do” phase at the moment.

      I know some well-place people that have said this too, and as far as i’m concerned there can’t be smoke without fire… I also remember getting texts about bomb attacks from concerned citizens group at occupy Nigeria rally sites during the protests in 2012, btw this group are one of uncle jona’s sponsored groups…People keep saying this man is stupid, he’s not! He’s pure evil and acts stupid to disguise his level of depravity…

      People have said the same about Buhari, plus how many people have forgotten Buhari’s “blood will flow” statement? Then there’s the one about Buhari rushing against time to be president so he can pay some annual fee to an Islamic organization that hasn’t been paid since Abacha’ or Yaradua’s time before Nigeria loses its membership. Everybody has slanderous theories and speculations and stories about both candidates. Bring out your proof or take a seat.
      This election should just come and go so that whoever wins can actually start pretending to work.

    GEJ thinks he can get more votes by going from one church to the other bcos he is a christian. Mr President, wake up! we dnt care what religion he practices, we dnt care abt his tribe anymore, all we want is a man that has the fear of God and is ready to make Nigeria the best nation! He keeps kneeling at d feet of both fake and real pastors. Talk to ur maker yourslf abeg. Who knws maybe you are also part of BH. mshwwww

    If it were GMB going from one mosque/imam to the other now, people would say it is because he wants to islamize Nigeria. But of course, GEJ can be jumping from one church to the other and there is no problem with that.

    When did it become the job of a President to thank people for going to Church? What’s with the selective appreciation anyway? please Mr President, make it a point of duty to visit other denominations too, they also pray and fast for Nigeria *rme* Celestial Church of Christ, Cherabium and Seraphim also have members in droves, go and thank them.

    It is just funny and ironical that everything they’ve accused GMB of, GEJ personifies.
    GMB is a religious bigot yet GEJ the model of proprietary and moderation is the one who has the CAN President permanently on his entourage, he is the one who would publicize his visit to Jerusalem along with numerous Pastors and Governors, he is still the one that would move from church to church.

    GMB is desperate yet I’ve not seen a more desperate Presidential candidate than GEJ.

    GMB is intolerant yet GEJ’s govt is the most intolerant of any kind of criticism. GMB is old and tired but GEJ is the one who is been caught dozing even at conventions.

    GMB promotes violence yet it is GEJ’s kinsmen that are holding meetings and threatening the nation from the Govt House in his state and they are still moving about freely and making threats daily.

    GMB is an ethnocentric individual yet under whose watch did an unapologetic militant become a warship supplier to the Navy or militants become billionaires overnight handling sensitive contracts because they are the President’s brothers?

    GEJ is the most divisive President Nigeria ever had and hopefully will ever have. A very devious man who will stop at nothing to divide the populace.

    Fatimah, may God bless you for this comment! GEJ’s supporters are so blind to his own faults but their eyes are wide-open to GMB’s “non-existent” faults. Don’t let me even start cos i’m on my way to getting angry already.

    For PDP chieftains to be saying they are ready to flee the country if GMB wins because of corruption probes, one would know they are very jittery.

    I have not seen people dat are as foolish as dis 21century northerners. so for a president brief his people of a failed plan attack frm some group of terrorist mean, he is clueless, he is bad, he is sponsoring ur own brother’s to kill u people, otherwise mean u groups of northerners here on social media can also be paid to kill ur parent and brother’s and dat show d kind animal brain dat u people hav adopted bcos dis kind of foolish tinkin and wisdom can not come from GOD. come to tink of it,dis whole thing started even wen Goodluck was not even dreaming of bcomin a vice president tlkmore of bcomin a president, how come u are now saying his is d behind ur own brother’s dat are killing u people. i tink is a better thing dat ur bokoharam brothers shuld kill especially all of you dat are here on social media so dat u people will not transfer dis hight of coconut adopted brain ans foolishness to ur children and young ones.
