How Goodluck Jonathan And His Wife Disgraced Us At Villa Meeting..Borno Delegation

Residents and some government officials in Maiduguri have expressed dismay over alleged “ill treatment” of Borno State officials at the Presidency in Abuja during interrogation over the abduction 267 girls at secondary school in Chibok over three weeks ago.
A Protest Letter signed by Mohammed Bashir Shuwa, the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Kashim Shettima on ICT Alhaji Aliyu Biu, made available to newsmen says they have reservations over the “degrading manner in which Borno state government officials were chastised and reduced to nothing by the presidency.”
It would be recalled that last Friday, 2nd May, 2014, President Jonathan had invited some government officials to the presidency, Governor Shettima, the state commissioner of Education Alhaji Inuwa Kubo, some security officials, the Principal of Government Girls Secondary School Chibok, the Chairman Chibok Local Government Council and the Divisional Police Officer of Chibok as well as the Chief Security Officer of the school.
According to the protest letter, “Upon their arrival at the presidential villa on Saturday May, 3rd 2014, President Goodluck Jonathan personally interrogated these key officials from 9pm to 2 am as if all the official information relayed to him by his security apparatus in Borno were meaningless, unreliable and suspicious.
At the end of the interrogation, President Goodluck Jonathan (with the exception of Shettima) handed over these officials to the Inspector General of Police with the clear instructions to do his job. These officials were driven to the Force Headquarters where they were detained and made to make written statements on how the girls were abducted and later released on bail on self recognition as if they were directly or indirectly responsible for the abduction of there own children.
“The following Sunday May, 5th, 2014 they were again taken to the Villa at 5pm for further interrogation and this time by the First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan. While at the Villa, they remained standing for four hours after which they were ushered in into the First Lady’s chambers where they were treated to verbal assaults as to the veracity of their claims on how the school girls were abducted to the admiration of her cheer leaders including the President of Market Women Association and Ms Onyeka Onwenu as well as some members of the
northern governors wives association present.
“One would have expected that the first lady would have sympathized with these government officials for the traumatic event they went through but unfortunately they were subjected to all sorts of embarrassing humiliation.
“The sum total of the First Lady’s vituperation appeared to be directed toward negativity and substituting facts with fictions in order to give a dog a bad name in order to hang it. Also attempts made to play on religious sentiments failed woefully having realized that the girls abducted came from various religious groups.
“As if that was not enough the first lady made a number of threatening remarks including the order to security officials to arrest some women protesters and shouting down on the state Director of State Security Service and other officials whom she allegedly libelled as Boko Haram sympathizers. She also ordered all the officials to resign their appointments forthwith on their return to their respective duty posts.
“This is highly unfortunate and totally unacceptable because the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) has not mentioned or given any clearly defined responsibility, role or power to first ladies to issue such directives or exercise the powers of the state chief executive directly or indirectly or otherwise. The first ladies are enjoying the current privileges courtesy of their husband’s position.
“This official highhandedness exhibited by Dame Patience Jonathan is primitive and unconstitutional and therefore totally unacceptable. Similarly the president also need to clarify the grounds on which he
ordered for the detention and interrogation of the key government officials from Borno State who were equally victims of the insurgency in Borno State.
“In view of the foregoing we call on the International Community to ask President Goodluck Jonathan to explain to the world why he appeared to have doubts as the security information sent to him by his own security apparatus and decided to descend on Borno State Government Officials.
If he has any doubt on such reports are the Borno State Government Officials who did not write these official security reports going to be held responsible and asked to clarify what they have not written and reported? To us the sum total action of the presidency tantamount to blaming the victim, hence the purpose of our protest,” the letter said. End

All d teachers of d school and its caretakers should b arrested for conspiring wit boko haram. Muslim all over d world are d reason why there is no peace on earth. Northern elders should call there sons to order by putting a stop in shading d blood of innocent muslim and nigeria.

    1. Wallahi Henry u talk my mind finish gabadaya Gbam...

    2. Mr Henry tnx and God bless you...............let's wait and see what next and I pray God will open their buttock one after the other ............

  2. Super story,nothern leaderss knows the truth behind the abduction of the school girl.let them pay the piper

  3. No girl was kidnapped at Chibok. Just a drama. The truth will come out sooner or later.

    1. Then tell me why dıd the Army at fırst claımed to have retrıved some of the gırls? How come the retrıved somethıng that was not stolen ın the fırst place? All the world know what ıs happenıng vıa satlıtes ımages and you stıll ınsıst on your stupıdıty why? The gov ıs playıng pranks so ıs the Army and now the Amerıcan have joıned the party. The Amerıcans are here to destroy and soon you wıll be watched by the whole world the same way you watched ıraq,lıbya, syrıa etc. Enjoy

  4. I strongly believe that Nigeria should divide. We are not one,we have never been and we will never be one.Boko Haram is giving Nigeria a bad image all over the word but in the nut shell,the Northerners are the the ones destabilizing peace in Nigeria.Of what use are the Housas are to Nigeria?All the Northern leaders know for sure what they are doing.It is no gain saying that we will divide one day so why can't it be now? Please my fellow reasonable Nigerians.Let us put head together and consider this idea Ideal.God bless New Nigeria.

  5. I stronglyyy support dividing nigeria as a northerner I know we are not united

  6. Good talk

  7. If the President who has been described as slow and humble by many questioned these people and asked the IG to do his job then they must have all given contradictory answers when questioned. It is not easy to consistently tell a lie under serios intorogation. Most likely their stories did not add up. It does not necessarily mean they had something to do with the incident but if they had to coverup for anyone that is when the inconsistencies start to pile up. I strongly believe God is at work in this nation. Very soon we will see the outcome. God bless Nigeria.

  8. The drama will soon end. Let us wait and see.

  9. The First Lady has a right to talk down on u people for ur stupidity. She is a mother of the Nation. Why aint u guys looking for solution to the abduction before the First Lady intervened? U are all guilty! Remember that there is God o! May God expose all of u in the abduction case.
