Tinubu Backs Amnesty For Boko Haram by 2iic(m): 1:34am On Mar 21, 2013
Former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Thursday in Kano called for the granting of amnesty to Boko Haram militants, insisting that they are not ghosts as alleged by President Goodluck Jonathan.

Tinubu, the National Leader of Action Congress of Nigeria, who was in Kano to commiserate with the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, over the attack on him and his convoy recently, explained that the amnesty must be based on justice, particularly for those with no blood stains on their hands.

He however said those involved in criminal activities among them must be made to face justice.

He said, “For the innocent ones among them, there must be amnesty. We cannot fight a war in our own country against minor crimes and minor people. We would only end up multiplying these people by trying to use force against our own citizens.

“I therefore disagree with the President; they are not ghosts.

“Are those people in prison ghosts? If they are, why are prison officials looking after them? Are JTF operatives fighting ghosts, do they possess magic power to see ghosts?”

According to him, security challenges in the country could also be attributed to the duplication of ministries related to Police affairs, which he said, could render the Inspector General of Police, M.D. Abubakar, incapacitated in taking firm control of security in the country.

At the Emir’s palace, Tinubu condemned the attack on the royal father, describing it as unfortunate.

The Emir, thanked Tinubu for the visit, describing him as a visionary and purposeful leader in every aspect of life by showing good example to the ordinary people.

GEJ said and i adduce him “Some of them are in the executive arm of government, some of them are in the parliamentary/legislative arm of government while some of them are even in the judiciary.

“Some are also in the armed forces, the police and other security agencies. Some continue to dip their hands and eat with you and you won’t even know the person who will point a gun at you or plant a bomb behind your house.”

Is Tinubu in charge of the intelligence and security apparatus of the Nigerian federation.

Obj was the first to advise this man on the carrot and stick principle of tackling such internal insurgency ..but he was shouted down...now the NASS and most senior and experienced citizens are calling for change of tactics that presently involves mainly armed confrontation.

Honestly the people handling GEJ are really messing up the man.

Why is the man so adamant in destroying a part of the country with his manner of approach to such security challenge?

@ilugunboy,
Carrot and stick principle,yes but OBJ never said anything about amnesty Tinubu is talking about here. Tinubu is not in charge of security so he should leave that to the experts. Pretty sure the Emir might have wanted to spit at his face for saying that(He's had a close shave) with the BH guys before if you've forgotten.

Lolzzz.....what is amnesty and what does the term carrot meant for?

Guy! Keep quiet if you don't know what you are talking about!

Probably you think amnesty is all just about doling out cash like they are doing for the ex-militants that are not really "ex" but simply on idle-mode.

Waiting for some people to call Tinubu sponsor of Boko Haram.

As GEJ said, boko haram are ghosts, but only to the common man on the street.But to the Ogas at the top, they are not ghosts. They know them.

Since the emergence of boko haram,a trend that almost brought the country to its knees,many have been arrested, and none has been tried and giving the necessary punishment, nothing serious has come out of any of their investigations. If GEJ does not consider amnesty, what serious measure is he taking to tackle this menace.

We, the residents of Kano are sick and tired of these blood thirsty monsters brought into Kano to destroy our commercial activities.

Sorry to burst your bubble, never been an advocate of GEJ and never will. Still want to know the rational behind Tinubu's thoughts on why he made that statement when the militants who enjoyed amnesty were fighting for a right and BH fighting for an ideology of ethnic and religious cleansing. Prove me wrong on this. Certainly, Emir will be so disappointed with the likes of senior citizens such as him.

That I.D.I.O.T,Tinubu should just shut his big kpomo mouth.Am sure the Emir couldn't wait to see his back.Dancing on the Grave of Boko Haram victims.Does he know the untold hardship families who had lost their love ones are going through.Maybe,when your dear Oluremi or any of your close family member is attacked by Boko Haram,let's see if you will suggest Amnesty.

1: fighting for you right by bombing national assets, looting and robbing banks in PH and environs, killing several innocent people, killing and maiming many fishing trawlers crew on the high sea in the name of piracy and commiting so many atrocities that led to so many losses ( our memories is short in this country)
2: fighting for your right by almost bringing the economy of this country down ( a truly treasonable offence)

Whatever the BH is fighting for ( catalogue of them which ordinarily don't make sense to me by the way) is also leading to several death, destruction and dislocation of several businesses and families.

Just like the armed confrontation in the creek did not solve the problem then ..people are equally saying it won't stop it now....why not explore alternative means of finding a solution rather than the armed tactics?

Fellow NLanders would easily give you all you need about the above.
In your opinion, which one make sense die,
1) Fighting for the wealth under your feet which outsiders have been exploiting and same time degrading your environment for,
2) Fighting to instill your ideology of what and who you are on others, maiming and killing even those who barely know what you're talking about.

Answer this: did the militant killed innocent people and destroyed innocent people's properties or not? The bottom line is they may have different motives and goals...but they both went for it the same way...killing and destruction. The goals may be different but the means are the same.

If armed tactics didn't solve the problem the first time ...it will probably or most likely not going to solve it this time around.

We shall see who is right and who is not between the army of well intentioned Nigerians and GEJ and his handlers.

At least you agreed to the fact that both groups had different goals and i will never dispute that that the militants were destructive too but the militants had leaders ready to talk to someone ...anyone about their grieviance unlike BH we only get to know their intentions on YouTube. You know better buddy, Tinubu goofed so stop making excuses for any charlatan no matter how high you place him.

jona is too dull to know that arms struggle alone can't defeat terrorism because it is an idealogy.you can defeat the terrorist but you can't defeat the terorrism mindsets.that why all might America will negotiate with Taliban in Qatar.but our gej is so dumb and thinks he knows all and has choose to turn a deaf ear to all voice of reasoning telling him to grant amnesty.anyway I pray he uses his dead brain cells before it is too late.
