The Peoples Democratic Party Councillors Forum has threatened to mention leaders of the All Progressives Congress who are allegedly sponsoring the Boko Haram sect in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.
The Chairman of the Forum, Mr. Collins Onogu, told journalists that by their recent activities and pronouncements, the APC leaders are poised to make Nigeria ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said the Boko Haram activities in the North East became so high because most of the rural dwellers in the area are PDP members.
Onogu said, “Most of those who have been rendered homeless in the North Eastern part of the country by Boko Haram are PDP members. What is their offence? The spokesperson of APC, Lai Mohammed has neglected his duty and he is now making statements on behalf of Boko Haram. The APC is calling for the probe Alli Modu Sheriff and Lt. Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika who may not even know anything about Boko Haram. Is that supposed to be his job?”
This plan to make the North East ungovernable for the President, it said, will not work as the group made up of grassroots persons will “soon start mentioning names of those behind Boko Haram activities in Nigeria.”
Onogu said, “Boko Haram cannot reveal their real sponsors to Nigerians, they will continue to lie. APC leaders are happy because the Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis, did not mention the names of their members as Boko Haram sponsors, we at the grassroots will soon mention their names, the truth will soon be revealed.
“APC has been using the media to blackmail President Goodluck Jonathan, their plan is to make the country ungovernable for him, they have plans of diverting the attention of Nigerians but it will not work out.”
The Chairman said the PDP Councillors Forum is fully behind the President in his fight against insurgency and for peace to return to the country.
“Boko Haram activities will soon be a thing of the past, it will not be forever, God is fighting for President Jonathan, He will fight for the PDP and the party will surely triumph in the forthcoming elections,” Onogu said.
