President Jonathan: Please act now!

13 August 2014, 08:55

Kudos to the Nigerian security agencies and Interpol for the arrest of Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, the mastermind behind the Nyanya killings of our people. It is a great job!

Our security agencies must equally step up efforts to have Shekau located and arrested. Is Shekau really operating from Sambisa forest with internet access? Which service provider is available for his use? With internet usage, all users are traceable through technological efforts. Shekau is traceable since he uses internet and uploads videos regularly.

Are the planted bombs being detonated miles away from Sambisa forest actually coming from the forest? How are the terrorists able to move across several check-points in states under emergency to cross to other states with weapons and explosive materials? The terrorists have abducted more of our daughters and mothers after the Chibok incident. How are they able to move their captives across states under emergency? Where are our abducted girls?

Furthermore, unless President GEJ becomes presidential by bringing the sponsors of terrorism to book, the battle is yet over. The devils have wreaked terrible havoc on our dear nation and have continued to kill us with impunity despite previous arrests of terrorist leaders such as Kabiru Sokoto and others. President GEJ had said previously that he knows the sponsors of terrorism in the land. As our Commander-in-Chief, we believe him. The time to act is now!

So long as the terrorists have access to political, financial and material supports through their sponsors, they will continue with their devilish activities. The arrests of Kabiru Sokoto and others (and now Ogwuche) should remove the dark veil protecting sponsors of terrorism. When the supplying wells of terrorism are dried up, the protective cover of terrorism will be blown off.

There is no doubt that our dear president loves the nation. The terrorists have continued to attack us with impunity because President Jonathan has failed to be presidential. As the father of all, he must deploy the required political will to deal with the sponsors of terrorism without any regard whatsoever to whose ox is gored. This is the only way to bring the efforts of our security agencies to fruition. This is the way to victory!
