An Igbo group in Nigeria, Ndigbo Unity Forum (NUF) has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to hold himself responsible if his government collapnses and for the escalation of the insurgency in parts of the country.
The President of Ndigbo the group, Augustine Chukwudum, who reacted to President Jonathan’s assertion on Sunday that some people are trying to bring down his government by using Boko Haram Islamic sect said that the President has been too lenient and slow in acting to stem danger.
Chukwudum admitted though that Jonathan was not the originator of the Boko Haram crisis, but that he has continue to fail to act as the Commander-in-Chief.
“He has not brought the military to do their duty as they ought. Let him do the right thing and the Boko Haram issue will die naturally. We have said it long ago that a former governor of Borno State should be arrested and prosecuted for his role in propping up Boko Haram, but government has failed to do this.”
The NUF president said that the military too should be indicted for their failure to bring the religious sect under control. [myad]
