The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has told representatives of the United Nations Ban Ki Moon that Nigeria would require the UN to focus on the after effect of terrorism in the region. The president said this while speaking with the representatives of the UN secretary general for west and central Africa, Mohammed Ibn Chambas and Abdoulaye Bathily. He said that the countries of the Lake Chad basin area had collaborated to chase the Islamist sect Boko Haram out of most areas in the north eastern region of the country.
The president told his audience that Nigeria will not require the UN assistance that relates to military enforcement of peace as stated in chapter 7 of the UN charter. He said, rather chapter 8 of the UN charter which recognises regional organisations role in collaborating with the UN in promoting peace is sufficient in tackling terrorism in the region. He said that the cooperation of the Lake Chad basin countries has helped largely in containing the activities of Boko Haram.
Speaking on behalf of the representatives of the UN secretary general, Mohammed Ibn Chambas congratulated President Goodluck Jonathan for his ability to a successful election. He commended Jonathan for his statesmanship and exemplary leadership. He said the 2015 presidential election is a model of what a peaceful election should be. He said it was reassuring to the UN that Nigeria was able to conduct a successful election. He added that election is a model for other African nations. He said the team was visiting other countries affected by the activities of Boko Haram like Cameroon, Chad and Niger. He said UN was ready to support the nations affected by the activities of Boko Haram.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
