The National leader of the disband Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and 8-year former Governor of Lagos Bola Tinubu, over the weekend described President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration as a failed government.
He observed that after 100 years of existence, Nigeria has nothing to show for it.
Tinubu made this statement in Ado-Ekiti, during a condolence visit to Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State over the death of his Deputy, Mrs Funmilayo Olayinka.
He warned the Federal Government against offering blanket amnesty to members of Islamist extremists, Boko Haram.
According to him, the planned amnesty should only be offered to groups that were fighting for justice.
He said, “Amnesty must bring about justice and should be selective. It must not be a blanket approach. Those venting anger on Nigeria because there is no justice in the system should be offered amnesty.
“But those causing trouble under another guise, should be prosecuted and sent to jail. No one religion can eliminate the other in Nigeria. Nigeria is a secular state.
Tinubu said. “It is disheartening for Nigeria to be clueless after its 100th year of existence and 53rd year of independence. This has shown that the present government has nothing to offer Nigerians.
“President Jonathan and Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) have failed in terms of security.
In a Response, the Re-Elect President Goodluck Jonathan group dismissed the two face Bola Tinubu and his dead ACN group, who were at the forefront of the call to give Boko Haram Amnesty immediately the unregistered APC governors returned from their Maiduguri visit.
"It is shocking that the same Double-faced people that were playing to the gallery over amnesty to Boko Haram, will make u-turn when President Goodluck Jonathan just set up a committee to determine the viability giving boko haram Amnesty and otherwise".
