Jonathan can be harmed in Chibok, says Jang
President Goodluck Jonathan got yesterday the support of Plateau State Governor Jonah Jang for his decision not to visit Chibok – the Borno State village where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted from their dormitory on April 15.
Anybody who insists Jonathan should visit Chibok wants Jonathan to be harmed, Jang, whose state capital, Jos, was bombed twice last week, said yesterday.
He also questioned the intention of the free-Chibok-girls-campaigners.
Jang said: “There has been crisis in the country before now but some politicians are making it look like it all started with the present administration. Meanwhile it is fellow Nigerians who are supporting and sponsoring terrorists and criminals coming from outside Nigeria to perpetrate crimes in the country.”
On the peaceful protests over the abduction of the Chibok girls, he said: “All these protests here and there over Chibok girls are questionable. Because, before the Chibok incident, children have been killed both in schools and other places in past attacks. All those did not attract protest until now, so this to me amounts to politicising the abduction for cheap political gains.
“I spoke with Mr President, and he confirmed to me that the government is conquering and will conquer the current challenges. I feel sad when I hear people calling on President Jonathan to visit Chibok, such people are not interested in the life and safety of their president. Some people want the president to be exposed to danger and be harmed so that they will rejoice.
“No nation’s security will want to expose its leader to unnecessary danger.”
He urged Christians to pray regularly because “the purpose of terrorism is to make you so afraid that you give up on life and may even be tempted to give up on God”.
Plateau House of Assembly Speaker Titus Alams said they “will not be distracted by distractors”.
