Emergency Rule Should Be Extended To Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Others, Monarch Tells Jonathan



SoENatMirrA former national chairman of the Traditional Rulers of Oil Minerals Producing Communities of Nigeria, TROMPCON, HRM Charles Ayemi-Botu, has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to extend the state of emergency to Kano, Zamfara, Kaduna, Nassarawa, Benue and Plateau states.

Speaking in his palace at Okpokunu in Burutu Local Government Area, Delta state, when he played host to Ijaw Professionals in Diaspora, who came with medical and flood supplies to his people, the monarch commended the President for the initial declaration of emergency rule in the three states of Adamawa, Borno and Yola but flayed him for his indecisiveness.

According to the Pere of Siembiri kingdom in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta state said, “He (Jonathan) seems to be fidgeting.”

Shedding more light, he said: “These persons want to Islamize the country, they are saying they abhor western education, you can see that they have no cogent reason for the killings, they are masquerading and doing all these things because their sponsors do not want Jonathan. Therefore, a state of emergency declared should involve those in the neighbouring states. Stepping it down the way it was done is not a full- force declaration.

“If the governor of a state supports the Boko Haram, leaving him in the position will not work. He should have included these states. It has been predicted that in 2015, Nigeria will break into many parts, if he does not want all these doomsday prophecies, as the Commander in-Chief, he should damn them and declare a full state of emergency.

“In my opinion, these boys can move to the nearby states, he should place these states on standby, the step is not enough but he should brave it. He should declare it and deal with them adequately. He should step on toes,” he added.

“Has (sic) the Northern Elders gathered together to talk to the Boko Haram sect all these while?” He asked. “They are doing this to rock Jonathan’s government; they want their person to be there so that it can be business as usual.”

He stated, “My stand is let the Federal Government convoke a sovereign conference for the people to decide whether to stay together, let us know where we will go and let everyone go and manage its resources.”

The monarch said, “They want to continue to chop our oil money, they have 83 per cent of oil blocs, it is like a family affair to them, and our people are suffering. We should prepare for 2015, if Jonathan will be the last President then let it be so.”

He stated, “If we are practicing a presidential system of government, we should practice true federalism. Let the people control their resources and pay royalties. No wonder they are fighting the PIB bill.

“Jonathan should step on toes, revoke all the oil block licences, Nestoil belongs to Yar’Adua. Posterity will not forgive Jonathan if he fails to revoke the oil licences, 50 per cent should go to the Niger Delta, oil is exhaustible, we want to control it and see how to invest the money before it is finished. They are angry that Jonathan is there now, they want their person,” he asserted.
