General Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to statements credited to the Spokeman of Peoples Democratic Party PDP ,Chief Olisah Metuh over those allegedly behind Boko Haram insurgency.
Buhari who spoke through Engr Rotimi Fashakin accused Metuh of “despicable fabrications with a view to gaining political advantage through iniquitous revisionism.”
Buhari reminded Metuh that “The former NSA, Late Gen Andrew Azazi, was unequivocal in his assertion that the power play in the PDP was the raison d’etre of the Boko Haram insurgency. Apparently, the discomfort caused within the PDP hierarchy was the reason for his sack.”
The full text of Buhari’s response written by Fashakin said “Mr Olisa Metuh is showing as much desperation as Joseph Goebbels in the last days of the Hitler regime.
It is sad that Mr Metuh decided to deal in despicable fabrications with a view to gaining political advantage through iniquitous revisionism. The former NSA, Late Gen Andrew Azazi, was unequivocal in his assertion that the power play in the PDP was the raison d’etre of the Boko Haram insurgency. Apparently, the discomfort caused within the PDP hierarchy was the reason for his sack.
“Furthermore, we knew of the confessional statement to the SS by one of the PDP stalwarts that the contact with Boko Haram was with the imprimatur of the VP Namadi Sambo! It is well understood that after the ruinous Jonathan regime had impoverished the teeming population of Nigerians through its deliberate policy of leadership-centred corruption, there will obviously be a desire to attempt to deflect the pressure put on it by Nigerians.
“An exploitative and iniquitous regime that specializes in exploiting poor Nigerian youth on the pretense of providing elusive job placements. This is a regime that has shown culpability in the needless deaths of vulnerable Nigerians through the callous lusting for greedy gains by the key honchos of the PDP party, as seen in the botched immigration job recruitment earlier in the month of March. This is a regime that is now so desperate as to employ the services of an Olisa Metuh who, without scrupples, evinces infernal asininity with his Press statements.
“General Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) has proven his mettle as a patriotic Nigerian leader whose passion for the virility of the Nigerian Nation is untrammelled. He is still the reference point in transparent, honest and compassionate leadership. This, obviously, contrasts the present leadership that constantly evinces larcenous disposition in its governance of the Nation. Indeed, Nigerians are asking: where is the $20 Billion that NNPC has not remitted to the Federation account?
