“Buhari Failed To Tell UK Audience He Loves Boko Haram” – Fani-Kayode
Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, spokesman of President Goodluck Jonathan campaign organisation, has stated that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, failed to inform his audience in the United Kingdom how much he loved dreaded sect, Boko Haram.
Buhari on Thursday at Chatham House in London, assured that he would restore Nigeria’s lost glory, if elected.
“We wonder whether General Buhari told his foreign audience whilst he was in London how much he loves Boko Haram,” Fani-Kayode said.
The spokesman also said he wondered whether Buhari told his audience that he once said that he believed that ”an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the north” and that the Boko Haram terrorists should be appeased, pampered, resettled and paid allowances.
“We wonder if he told them that he was once nominated by Boko Haram to be their spokesman and representative during proposed negotiations with the Federal Government,” said the former Aviation Minister.
He hinted that the president’s campaign would express its views about Mr. Buhari’s “stage-managed show of shame at Chatham House at a later date” and, that at that time, more details would be provided.
“For now, all we can say is that it is truly pitiful that a former Head of State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria believes that it is more important to win the hearts and minds of the British than it is to win the hearts and minds of the Nigerian people.
“General Buhari can run to any foreign country in the world to say anything that he likes but at the end of the day the decision as to who will lead Nigeria as from May 29th this year will be determined by no one else but the Nigerian people. The game is on here and not in London.”
