Donbrig: GEJ has just won the heart of millions of Nigerians. I like his boldness, that is what we've been missing from a real Bayelsan. Never take a quiet man for a fool. If 2015 election were to be held next week, it would have been a landslide victory for GEJ. Proud of my president once again.
Wc heart has he won? What happened to the one earlier declared in those region. Let's forget Boko haram; hw will dis stop d barbaric fulanis' from attacking pple in Plateau, Benue and Nassarawa?

It took him so long to do this, its really disappointing, after thousands of Nigerians had died, its piteable. I hope the state of emergency addresses d issue; God help them.

alnaijiri: State of Emergency in the North is a codeword for restricting democracy and autonomy of the Muslim North and subjugate Muslims under this Xtian Crusader government. We know this is what the South wants. Maybe they're bankrolling BH and other "Islamic" groups all along to get what they want.
South is bankrolling BH and you are habouring them....you slowpoke.

Henry120:


Ordinarily, It means that the military would take over the civilian regime.

However GEJ version which is more democratic I must say, the governors are to continue with their legally appointed roles as public office holders, but they have no say in security whatsoever, as their powers have been relinquished to the military administrator appointed by the chief of defence staff. Who now has sweeping powers in the 3 affected states.

Here is a short precise excerpt of the speech


BEEGEAGLE’S BLOG
14 May, 2013

That is the main plank of a special address delivered by President Jonathan at 1900hrs today

- State of Emergency declared in the northeastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.

- Chief of Defence Staff ordered to immediately deploy more troops with sweeping powers to vigorously combat insurgents and to destroy any facilities used by terrorists

- Governors and political office holders in the affected states to continue in the execution of their offices

Thank you for the education

Policewoman: WAIT O, IT'S LIKE THE GOVERNORS WERE NOT SUSPENDED. PRESIDENT JONA HAS GOOFED AGAIN

OK. I guess he didn't want to do it the OBJ way; but the military will be the lead agency in handling security. Therefore, the governors will temporarily not be the "Chief security officers" of their states.

I want to know the CPC+ACN=APC thought on this as they seems to politicize everything.
Kudos to you GEJ, you are beginning to heed to my advise.
Re: State Of Emergency Declared In Borno, Yobe and Adamawa by Maxymilliano(m): 8:00pm On May 14, 2013
This is State of emergency with human face. GEJ greatest undoing is his humility and his gentle approach to burning issues and which is interpreted as stupidity by some ne'er do well.

All democratic institutions should have been suspended!

But since it's synonymous with military action, it is a good move!
