Boko Haram: CPC rejects nomination of Buhari as mediator

The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) has vehemently rejected the nomination of its national leader and presidential candidate in 2011 general election, General Mohammdu Buhari as a mediator in talks with Islamic sect, Boko Haram.

An alleged member of the sect on Thursday declared that the group which has been staging insurgent attacks against the Nigerian government was ready to cease fire and hold talks, giving some conditions and nominated General Buhari to be part of those that will negotiate on behalf of Nigeria.

The party in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Engineer Rotimi Fashakin, stated that the move was a “cheap propagandist endeavours of the PDP (People’s Democratic Party)” and it called on Nigerians to “reject this latest deceptive ploy by this PDP-led government and demand for more transparency in the governance of the nation.”

Political Boko Haram

According to the CPC, this move is the “latest gambit in the desire of this organically corrupt PDP-led Federal Government in diverting the attention of the unsuspecting Nigerian public from the on-going massive looting of their common patrimony”, as it heaps the blame for the insurgency on the ruling party.

“The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as a corporate entity, is the harbinger of the insecurity travails of the Nigerian People for the sole reason of ensuring perpetuity in governance” the statement alleged.

The opposition party claimed that there are three variants of Boko-Haram adding that the PDP federal government is a “political Boko Haram”.

“The original Boko-Haram that is at daggers drawn with the Nigerian authority for the extra-judicial killing of their leader; the criminal Boko-haram that is involved in all criminality for economic reasons and of course, the most lethal of all, the Political Boko-Haram-which this PDP-led Federal government represents.”

CPC recalled that “President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan had once alerted the nation of the ubiquitous presence of Boko-Haram in his government- a fact aptly amplified by his erstwhile National Security Adviser, General Andrew Azazi.”

“Undoubtedly, the latest revelations by the State Security Services (SSS) on the complicity of the top echelon of the PDP leadership in Boko Haram activities aptly bear testimony of the noxious subterfuge to extirpate the essence of our nationhood.”

The party therefore rejected the planned use of its leader (General Buhari) in any mediation with the sect, noting that “without any scintilla of equivocation, General Muhammadu Buhari has never been directly or remotely connected with any insurrection or insurgency against the Nigerian Nation and her people.”

“He remains the quintessential patriot that continues to magnetize the very best across the ethno-religious boundaries within the Nigerian nation-space.”

     PDP federal government is a “political Boko Haram”. says CPC

  • OKEGOD

                             NIGERIA IS BIGGER THAN ANY POLITICAL PARTY
     
    Does the CPC as a Party think about Nigeria and Nigerians, or does it exist for itself alone? If the CPC loves Nigeria and Nigerians, how can a well meaning NIgerian, or Party say peace is not his or its priority as the CPC is posturing. Let the CPC not make Nigerians believe the Party is happy with the wanton destuction of lives and property by the BOKO HARAM SECT. If it is Muhammadu Buhari’s presence in the mediation that should bring the needed peace in the Northern part of the Country, why should any sane person make it a cheap political issue?

       I think you have missed the whole point.I have to remind you that boko haram did not make any seize fire proposal. the pdp led government is trying to distroy the image of one of the proven innocent men in nigeria. they may convince many, but not the majority of us that have uncovered this plot. they have failed totally.

    General Buhari has never and can never be a good man. He has never and will never mean well for the country. I am very sorry for all you lame Buhari supporters. Buhari said he will make the country ungovernable if he is not President. Since he left the office of the President he has been contesting to be re-elected. That is his curse, he will continue to contest election and lose and go to court and lose till his grey years. His evil agenda, what he has planned to do, those he wants to deal with, the money he wants to recover, will never materialize.
