Nyako Lauds Jonathan’s Handling Of Security Council Meeting, Denies Being Condemned

Published

Adamawa State Governor Murtala Nyako has dismissed reports he was condemned at last Thursday’s National Security Council meeting, held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, over his letter to northern governors, which alleged that the Federal Government was guilty of genocide in the North.

Nyako, in his response during an interview with journalists in Yola, Adamawa State capital, yesterday, said he was never condemned by anyone during the meeting.

“Neither my humble self nor my letter to northern governors was condemned. People made observations but nobody came out to ask why or how did I reach my conclusion and all that,” he said.

“Mr. President allowed everybody to speak, asked for comments and we were allowed to read the papers again and asked for comments and nobody condemned me for writing such a letter. For people to say that my letter was condemned was all nonsense,” Nyako stated.

He however lauded President Jonathan who, he said, presided over the Thursday meeting with decorum and allowed everyone to ventilate his opinion freely.

“Mr. President, to me, was really superb with the way he handled the Security Council meeting. He bore no anger, no sign of getting too involved and allowed everybody to speak and nobody condemned me for writing that letter. This is a democratic country and we are free to speak”, Nyako added.

The governor faulted the deployment of the military to curb insurgency in the three states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, saying history had shown that the involvement of the military to contain internal security situation always results in massive casualties and, as such, many countries had stopped the use of the military to contain internal security challenges.

According to him, knowing the implication of military involvement in internal security challenges, former Military Head of State, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, refused to send the military to contain violent bloodletting during Zangon Kataf uprising and also failed to involve the military during the civil crisis that rocked Taraba State.
