Boko Haram should fear Nigeria Revolution


Before being accused of supporting one Political Party over others, I want to say that I care less about PDP or APC, or any other political party for that matter with Presidential flag bearers, who have at one time or another governed this country with little or no success.

My philosophy from time immemorial has always been – if you have to lead me, then you must be smarter than me in terms of ideas and otherwise, and from all indication this quality is greatly and enormously lacking in the candidates that has emerged so far from the different parties.

It must be stated though, that President Jonathan has the right to contest according to Nigeria's judicial system operating within the tenets of our constitution, so also does the electorates has the right to decipher and properly diagnose situations before casting their vote this time to avoid four massive years of abandonment and untold suffering.

When a father continuously promise his child of a gift if he performs exceptionally in his study and the child makes it home with a perfect record in school only to find out that his father has shifted his words, not once or twice but all the time, even the most religious child will lose faith in that father. That is exactly what we get from a government who is so comfortable speaking from all sides of the mouth – the citizenry are at a lost on what to believe, because at every turn they have been misled. Hence, when it comes to fighting insurgency (i.e providing security) and rolling out the big hammer on corruption, President Jonathan is exactly the same with the 'promise and fail father'.

In his declaration rally, President Jonathan said in respect of the over 50 young children who died from the bomb attack in Government Secondary School in Yobe State and to Nigerians who has lost properties and loved ones, “Clearly this has cast a dark cloud on our nation but we will surely win the war against terror. A number of young men and women have been kidnapped by these criminal elements including our daughters from Chibok. We will free our daughters and defeat terrorism.” How does President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan plan to accomplish this feat exactly?! Because the statistics and facts speaks volume against such huge claims.

Boko Haram from all indication has won the war against the Federal Government and they have appeared clueless, which has left the citizens defenseless and helpless. Nevertheless, the insurgents and the government should fear the might of Nigerians. The masses' insurgency that could arise from the massive neglect for citizens' lives and properties could consume the country more than what the Boko Haram is laying down on the feet of the nation.

Government of any nation loses face when they start speaking from every corner of their mouth which is clearly what  this administration has been characterized with over the years. Jonathan said: “We are equipping the armed forces and deploying special forces to engage the terrorist and end this senseless war. We must protect our country.” 'senseless war', true! But 'We are equipping the armed forces and deploying special forces to engage the terrorist', I can't quite put my hand on it, then 'We must protect our country', just lies from the pit of hell.

Both the Nigerian government and the insurgency group it founded should be weary of the rise of the Nigerian people.
