Nyako Fires Back, Calls Jonathan’s Govt The Most Confused, Corrupt And Incompetent Regime Ever

Published

on

Nyako Murtala, adamawa Gov.-

The presidency and Adamawa State Governor Murtala Nyako have continued trading words over terror attacks in the state and the north eastern region.

Nyako fired back at the presidency, following remarks by presidential aide, Doyin Okupe. He accused President Goodluck Jonathan of being incompetent.

Speaking through his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Ahmed Sajoh, the governor said the response by the Presidency was an indication that those running the Federal Government were more confused than ever while claiming to be more knowledgeable than other Nigerians.

Nyako had on Friday night raised dust, when he reportedly wrote a letter to the Northern Governors Forum, accusing the Federal Government of committing genocide in the North under the guise of fighting Boko Haram.

The Adamawa governor however, yesterday, said he stood by his statement and challenged those who claim to have a better sense of history to desist from semantics and address the core issues he raised in his letter to the northern governors.

“Feeding the public with untruth is becoming a new culture in Abuja. The statement on the supposed rescue of the abducted girls is enough to prove that. It is a pity that responsible and supposedly educated people could manufacture statements and attribute them to others just to create an escape route from their glaring failures. None of the statements attributed to Governor Nyako by the Presidency was ever made by him. They were all manufactured for lack of a sound counter argument.

“If indeed the Presidency is not complacent about the killings in the country, how come the President went dancing a day after several citizens were killed in Abuja? If they claim that Nyako does not deserve to be governor, are they fit to be where they are?

“When we say the Boko Haram phenomenon is phantom, we are talking based on several testimonies by the President. At one point, he said there were Boko Haram elements in his government. At another point, he said they were ghosts he could not dialogue with; yet recently, he admitted that the young poverty stricken persons so far arrested could not afford the guns they carried.

“And we say to them you have full command and control of the armed forces and security outfits with all the intelligence units, investigate their activities, expose their patrons, sponsors and strategic commanders and arrest them.

“We also challenge them to expose their sources of arms. We still repeat the earlier questions we raised: How come the insurgents move about unchallenged at night in our states under the so-called emergency rule when we have a night time curfew in place?

“How come the insurgents operate for many hours unchallenged when we have military units all over the place? How come the insurgents move with a large convoy of vehicles through routes that have 24 hours military check points?

“How come statements by the Presidency and other authorities in Abuja are always at variance with realities on ground at the theatres of conflict? We want answers not insults or empty rhetoric.”

“On the issue of creating divisions among the people, no one does it better than a Presidency that urges its backers to direct its people to implicate innocent Northerners in Bombings they know nothing of, or one whose known official uses online sources to implicate someone it chooses to hate for no just cause.

“This Presidency also encourages some of its spokespersons to speak ill of certain persons and religion without a reprimand. This is the most divisive leadership in the history of this country and it also the most desperate to cling to power even at the cost of several lives of innocent citizens. Unfortunately, it is also the most inept, confused, greedy, corrupt and incompetent regime ever.

On the corruption mantra, while the Presidency is fond of asking governors to account for allocations given, we challenge them to live by the same token, declare what you got and account for it.

“After all we now have proof that certain projects which are not executed have been announced as completed such as the Hong to Mubi road in our state which the Minister of Information announced its execution at their Bauchi Rally.

“Meanwhile, someone should help us ask the President under what budget sub-head did he get the money he allegedly gave Governor Kwankwaso to bribe delegates to vote for him which was allegedly diverted. We think rather than vent their venom in insulting people, presidential spokespersons and media managers should do better by re-focusing the man to be more open minded and competent in grappling with the myriad of challenges facing the nation,” Nyako said.

    Question to Governor Nyako…if I have a rat invasion in my home should I point my fingers to the landlord? The question is how would you govern a state and weapons and terrorist are playing jamboree with human lives…you have taking no measures to curb it, instead you are fighting the government that is trying curb insurgency so you will be able to fund nd encourage boko haram with your cohorts… What reasoning is there, that you could not check mate the borders around your state, even when the killings where unbearable, u did nothing…you were in your gov lodge eating fura…My friend will you shut up and do your job

    Mr. Nyako, this is not time for abusing offices or calling a particular group names. In your letter you said Mr. President is from East to kill the north. What do you stand to achieve on that statement? The Lions and Lioness (Easterners) are on their own and you want to rope them falsely. I’ll advice you and your party to form an alliance with the Presidency and tackle this insurgency issue once and for all. Calling names will not do anything, moreover we’re talking peace and you are talking war, the 3 million igbos you people killed, do you think its not in our memories, as a youth I cry every day because of the mass murder, please don’t start what you can’t finish. Kindly be cautious of your statement. Enough is enough

    I am not sure if GEJ’s government is the most corrupt, but I do agree with the governor that it is the most confused and clueless.
