Jonathan Sponsored Boko Haram To Cover Up Corruption”, El-rufai Tells BBC by DivideUs(m): 9:56am On Jun 03, 2012
Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Nasir el-Rufai yesterday alleged the Federal Government of being responsible for the continuous bombing in the Northern states region.

El-Rufai who made this accusation while granting an interview with “BBC” said that government’s involvement was a diversionary measure.

He alleged that Jonathan always ordered Boko Haram to embark on bombings, whenever corruption in his government was about to expose to the masses.

“This will assist the government to change the attention of the masses on the Boko Haram’s activities rather than anxiously waiting to protest or sue the government for corruption” He said.

He recalled that Boko Haram engaged on daily basis bombings when the report of House of Representatives Committee on fuel subsidy came out.

He said,“We have to start accusing the government because anytime we are in this problem, like when the Farouk committee in the House of Representatives came out with its report on the fuel subsidy scam, at that time they started coming out with bombs all over.

“Therefore….we keep on asking the government : ‘ why is it whenever they have problem, that is when those they call Boko Haram will start bombing. Or are they working together?

“They are yet to give us an answer; there are many other things which up till now, there is no explanation. Every Nigerian knows that two years ago, there was rest of mind and he could sleep well at home. But today, there is no rest of mind, things have deteriorated.

“The economy has deteriorated; salaries are delayed in the Federal Civil Service. Since I left Abuja last week, April salary was not paid. That of March was paid in May, even the monthly allocation to states, they were unable to pay. We don’t know where the money is going so the economy is in trouble”.

The former Minister also alleged that the federal government has been receiving $1billion loans on every months.

He urged the masses to visit the website of the Debt Management Office (DMO) to verify his claim.

“We calculated and I wrote on it in the paper, nobody came out to say it is not true. Every month since Jonathan became the President, on the average, every month he takes $1 billion loan.

The Debt Management Office published it, it is a government office. So, I am not just saying it. Even last month, the Federal Government sold bond,”

But reacting to this, the political adviser to the President, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak dismissed the allegation, saying it is callous and unreasonable.

He urged Nigerians not to take the allegations of the former minister seriously as they were baseless and not true.

He described the allegations as “just an outburst from the opposition camp which cannot hold water. It is the figment of his imagination, it is not true.

“Every right thinking person will not listen to that and will never agree with what El-Rufa’i is saying. This is because they are so extreme in their opposition. For example, ministers came out some days ago and they reeled out all the achievements and successes of governments.

“In the next two months, you will see trains shuttling between Lagos and Northern Nigeria, God willing. Everybody knows that road construction is on. Is that not so? Look at the education sector, we have gone far”.

It remains a suspicion (albeit not unlikely) that there exists a faction of "boko haram" being sponsored by government!

But even if we can deny that on basis of zero proof aside supposition, we need to ask - how come salaries are not being paid? Even the military had not been paid now and some civil servants are owed 2 months + salaries! What is government doing with money? And why is every corruption case being swept under the carpet?

@nuclearboy,
what do u mean no proof and what is proof?
abu qaqa was arrested in a governor's lodge in abuja - pdp gov
senator ndume was indicted by an arrested member and traces of msgs from his phone were made public by mtn - he is pdp.
FG paid N100m to the family of the slain leader of boko haram and N5m to youth corpers killed by boko haram.
henry okah mentioned jonathan in his statement in south africa but leave that one.
pdp chairman only last week told nigerians that boko haram are fighting for justice.
uncle, what other proofs do u want?
jonathan himself on several occasions told us that they know who the sponsors of boko haram are.
joe said they will delete boko haram by june and here we are. it is a time to wait and see.
let no nigerian be biased about the role of boko haram in the polity because i can remember vividly how jonathan arrested Chief Raymond dokpesi over the 1st oct bombing in abuja. dokpesi according to joe was the masterminder. then dokpesi was in the camp of ibb but immediately after his arrest, he declared for jonathan and till today, nobody has mentioned that case again. could it be that the bomber(dokpesi) is now bombing for joe instead of against joe?

So sensational but incorrect heading.

El Rufai accussed THE FEDERAL GOV'T and I think that is different from Jonathan.

About the accussation itself, in my opinion, it is childish!
There is something called causation and another called associated and yet another confounding.
If El Rufai is serious, he will take time to give us more facts.
Boko Haram is a serious issue in Nigeria.

It sounded like a primary school boy just talking any how...

The question to ask el-rufai is why is bh centred in the north if GEJ sponsors it. What has bh got to do with corruption and gej? If elrufai is to be believed why hasnt gej used bh to eliminate his political opponents like tinubu, buhari and even the loud mouth himself?

I may nt be a fan of jonathan but isnt it stupid to hear a reknowned national clown and corruptn personified Nasri el rufai playing a saint.As the days passes by,am becoming more than ever convinced that El rufai and some other northern elites may have a hand or an indirect sponsorship arrangement with the dreaded boko haram!i ve waited with bated breath to just hear him and his cohorts condemn boko haram for what it is,but they play a role that is diversionary in nature!cant a man whom has lost out of the corridors of power,go back and get a life!i can see frustration written all over him,always seeking for cheap publicity.
