Nigerian Ambassador's Stupid Anger Against the US Refusal to Sell arms to Nigeria

 President Barack Obama and Mr. Adebowale Ibidapo Adefuye, Nigeria's ambassador to the United States of America.

It is really interesting to read the report on Mr. Adebowale Ibidapo Adefuye, Nigeria's ambassador to the United States criticizing Washington for refusing to sell lethal weapons to Abuja to fight the Boko Haram Islamic terrorists according to the Associated Press on Yahoo News. And he was also quoted saying the extremists otherwise would have been defeated long ago if the US had sold the required arms to the Nigerian government to fight the rampaging Boko Haram insurgents in the Middle Belt and northern states of Nigeria. What an irrational statement and clearly shows the ignorance and stupidity of the Nigerian ambassador.  So, without arms from the US, Nigeria cannot protect the lives and properties of the largest population in Africa?

 Abubakar Shekua, ruthless leader of the Boko Haram.

Boko Haram soldiers in action. Boko Haram is the common nickname for Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'Awati Wal-Jihad (People Committed to the Prophet's Teachings for Propagation and Jihad)
Boko Haram terrorists have attacked and killed more than 5,000 people, targeting mostly Christians in the northern states and Middle Belt of Nigeria.
Only ignorant fools are criticizing the US and they are the idiots in the southern states and outside Nigeria who don't have any clue on the facts that the CIA found out on the brains behind the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria. The US knows that the Nigerian government is implicated in the insecurity in the north with Boko Haram having access to the military depots of the Nigerian army and President Goodluck Jonathan cannot be trusted with Shekau making his videos in open savannahs and the Nigerian air force claiming not to know his whereabouts?
You wonder what has happened to the signals unit of the Nigerian army, because simple military intelligence is enough to end the insurgency destroying thousands of innocent lives and properties worth billions of naira in northern Nigeria.

President Goodluck Jonathan admitted that the Boko Haram terrorists have infiltrated his government.

The administration of President Goodluck Jonathan watches as AK 47 guns are freely carried and used by nomadic Hausa Fulani herdsmen in the Middle Belt and other parts of Nigeria and his Minister of Defence cannot stop the illegal use of these deadly arms against harmless civilians who are mostly farmers who feed the nation and the government watches as these defenceless and powerless farmers are attacked and murdered in their villages and farms without arrests and no prosecution of the marauders on rampage in the Middle Belt and northern states. Then sophisticated arms are exchanging hands in the Niger Delta as the so called militants are still attacking and kidnapping foreign workers and you wonder what happened to the Amnesty truce for which billions of dollars have been spent on the pacification of the Niger Delta militants whose leaders have become instant multimillionaires from questionable government contracts awarded by President Jonathan.

The US also saw how President Jonathan deployed a battalion of soldiers to frighten and bully voters during the gubernatorial elections in Ekiti and Osun states of All Progressives Congress (APC), the opposition party and saw how trucks of bags of rice from the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) supplied political bribes to the hungry poverty stricken voters to rig the election in Ekiti and the denouncement of that election by the highly esteemed Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka is enough for the US to dismiss the fake results. And who is Ayo Fayose of the PDP compared to the APC's Kayode Fayemi, whom the US and international community have known for years as Director of the Centre for Democracy & Development, a research and training institution dedicated to the study and promotion of democratic development, peace-building and human security in Africa. He was a prominent leader of the Nigerian opposition to military rule in exile and was responsible for the founding and management of the opposition radios – Radio Freedom, Radio Democracy International & Radio Kudirat and played a central role in the opposition’s diplomatic engagements in exile. And this is the person that President Jonathan manipulated the electoral process in Ekiti to defeat in favour of Ayo Fayose. Who is Fayose in the democratic struggle of Nigeria? Even where was President Goodluck Jonathan when Fayemi, Tinubu and other comrades were marching against the draconian tyrants of military misrule in Nigeria before 1999? And this is the kind of government that the US should sell arms to?
