Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday at the Harvard University, accused former President Goodluck Jonathan of not being interested in the defeat of violent Islamist group, Boko Haram, during his time in government.
Osinbajo who was delivering a lecture titled, “The unraveling of Boko Haram and the rebuilding of the North-East of Nigeria” said it was convenient for the last administration to claim that Boko Haram was sponsored by northern elite to rubbish the administration led by Jonathan, a Christian, the Punch newspapers reports.
In the statement which was released by his media office, Osinbajo said the former ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party claimed All Progressive Congress (APC) was the political wing of the Boko Haram sect. According to him, this continued until President Muhammadu Buhari was nearly killed in an attack in Kaduna before the narrative began to subside.
He said, “As the government dithered and equivocated, BH proceeded to realise the objective of occupying territory and establishing Islamist states in Nigeria and in the Lake Chad basin.
“In Borno State alone, it occupied and hoisted its flag in 20 of the 27 Local Government Areas that constituted the state. In Adamawa State, BH took Mubi and some villages in Yobe State.”
Osinbajo said what exposed the government’s inept handling of the Boko Haram insurgency to the world was the kidnap of over 200 Chibok school girls by the sect.
He noted that since Buhari took over office, the government has approached the insurgency in the North East with renewed vigor, adding that the strongest reasons for Buhari’s victory in the March 2015 presidential election was the expectation that going by his reputation as a no-nonsense soldier, he would defeat Boko Haram and restore peace to the North-East.
According to him, Buhari was largely elected into office because people believed that he would bring to play his no-nonsense attitude toward dealing with the insurgency.
October has just ended and this pastor didn’t give us the 200,000 jobs he promised to give us before October. All these guys are playing with our heads.
No mind dis government lie lie people..
No be una get time to dey believe dose fools, dey have nothing to offer and that’s d truth
Maybe October, 2020. Lol
Hmmmm pliz who is this I dont know him who is osibanjo…..Jonathan I know Sambo I know but Buhari and osibanjo I know not

Hajiya you seriously need oxford dictionary, kin ji kwo?
Nawa oo am not trying to credit any one hear oh bt i still respect ds present government in the security sector serious have been a victim of ds insurgency n d nation buhari did more dan jonathan
if not that your a fan of APC led by buhari you shud b clever enough to know buhari n his cohuts were behind d insurgency it was a tactics used in ruining jonathans government pple had to vote them just for peace to reign, have you forgotten buharis threat that if he doesnt win that there will be mass massacre n blood shed innocent will perish so jonathan was kind enough not to watch innocent citizens die out of bad politics ,ever since APC was declared winners d bombings reduced drastically ,
you will agree with me
He has 100% interest but just that you people were behind the boko boys just to make sure he leave the seat for you people now he has gone instead of u to fulfill the promises you people make you are there blaming the man whom we enjoyed his time well keep blaming him while your tenure runs out fake pastor
Colanut that last long in the mouth of them that value it#Goodluck Jonathan.

He did all his possible best to better the country bt failed bcos he was surrounded by fake and greedy people…

U ar rite dear
let this fake pastor no let me hate am o…so as them d so them don defeat boko haram, obori george like them
Am wondering, is osinbajo really a pastor. If he is/was a pastor, with all these his lies is he not afraid of incurring the wrath of God
Yes because BOKO was a cabal formed to work against him and make his government useless
i tot short pple are supposed to be wiser,but in this man case is the other way round, his thinking faculty is as short as his height, #Nwa_akpuda
You that have interest defeated them, useless goat

Osibanjo or whatever you called yourself bear it in mind that your days are numbered you and that ingrate that called himself President just very soon that seat will be too hot for both of you and remember that seat you both are enjoying now belongs to the dead so be care full.
Pastor start making wrong judgement and criticism, in fact you’re not a true pastor.
Foolish vice president
This VP is always spewing thrash. Today is 1st November , where is the 200000 graduate jobs you promised to achieve by October?
Maybe October next year. 2017
Even October 2019. Bunch of lairs
Do you have the interest Mr osibanjo?
Osibanjo Gerrahere, in Igbo siyabapuwo, in Hausa ka bar nan danshegiya
Talk about recession and leave boko haram,bcos u have not defeated boko haram.Osinbajo u are trying to pls ur boss,Buhari.Name just one effective contribution u have made in this ur focusless and lack of creative policy in this govt,that is causing economic backwardness,hardship and lawlessness as a swegbe SAN wen u bi.Osinbajo stop talking attacking Jonathan,bcos u are a boy to Jonathan in any level u would find urself.Jonathan is more u and Buhari,the whole APC govt.So,u and Buhari should defeat boko haram first before u accuse Jonathan,ok.Just keep quiet and face the reccesion that u and ur illiterate boss cause in this country,stupid man.
Hahahahahahaaaa, u don crack my ribs o. Who provoke u Sir
U don vex
Na these bastards dey make me vex,dem bi swegbe.The most painful thing is Osinbajo,a professor for that matter,a professor of law.Who do not. understand the law of Nigeria,all he knows how to do best is to criticise Jonathan and Osinbajo needs to know that Jonathan passed him in all ramification.
Bros no talk wetin u no know ds weapon dey re not jonathans
u dey talk watin u know,abi?
but pls sir, who are u?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought u are a pastor? Y nt say the truth
Just as Apc has no plan about restoring the economy to part of progress
In all the political parties today whether opposition or not, there is no political or economic value for the youths in Nigeria.
Only God will judge our Nigerian greedy politicians. (MK FORMULA…)
You are a big lier, if you don’t know what to say can’t you keep quiet, must you talk. Ok let me ask you Mr osibanjor, since you and your wicked buhari entered that seat. How many of the boko haram members have you pple arested alive or dead. Rather what you pple did in secret was to realise the ones Jonathan captured back to shekao whom you and buhari have killed over 5 times and he is still alive so that he can continue his work. No wonder the attack have resume to his fullness in borno again. See no matter what you come out here to say so as to cover you shame, we Nigerians know the truth. So stop deceiving your self. See you and buhari should be thinking of how to bring out this country from where 2 of you have landed us because of your senseless and stupid behaviours.
You are a fool. What have you done since you took over office???? You are just a tool for Buhari
U talk to much . I pray that every lying spirit from lai mohd depart from u now in jesus name amen
I don’t know wen dis short man will wake up from sleep……
Osibanjo sir we do not know where u are getting ur facts or are being used
Ok….agreed, now that u have defeated boko haram n brought back the girls. where are the 200,000 Jobs u promised?
Who even said dey defeated boko haram,dose bunch of useless liars
We know its all a scam,….they themselves are scam personified.
Brought back just 21girls at of, 200and. With the exchange of releasing BokoHaram leaders that where arrested in Jonathan regime. Where are the other girls?
U cant defeat Bokn haram
And who told u guys dat u and buhari defeated boko haram….we no be fools na, keep acting d movie u guys are acting God go catch una soonest!!!
Have u bn able to defeat it? Since Jonathan failed so u said
This man like story l never see u talk like chairman talk less of vice president
#Thunder wey go enta dat una kabal jst dey observe wia una left yansh position. make im do press up finish. #419_CHANJII
Bt he had interest in defeating ebola
oga,Vpppppppppppppp.Make u nor go talk the one wen go mke God vex o
Just compare the past and now than you will know the differences between who is willing to defeat the killer squad. Jonathan has more money to defeat the haramites but foolishly concentrated on his continuation project on second term. Evidence emerged from when the election was postponed to six weeks and yet he still failed woefully. Thanks to God with the change at least the Boko Haram has been defeated by 99.9%.
Hw was bokoharam defeated 99.9% abi na u defeat dem? Oluku
That’s the problem with you young prostitutes. Lack of manners.
bros take time, u know ur Bro the presido is the boko haram. so wetin he fight. no vex me
Hahaha Timothy you vex they make me laugh.
Auwalu Adamu Aliyu heard your mother is a dick sucker.
Who is this gay again? (Prize Nwenearizi )

Hey hey hey shut and sit
Look at his ugly face foolish man
It APC ideology to create boko in so called born to rule
I hear xa dis man na pastor cee de kyn nonsense way he da tlk Hu day sponsor the boko haram if no be dem the apc oya mk dem start day defeat dem mk we day cee God pass dem
You didn’t pray well for him to defeat Boko Haram. Instead of praying for the country, u were killing the country. My questions is, what have you done since you are in Govt.
Sire with all due respect stop saying nonsense. instead of you looking for a way to restore your faith, you are there saying all the rubbish from your mouth. we all know that buhari is the one in charge of bokoharam. Even his regime is much more better than that of you and your so called oga.
If u want to criticise u talk small small cos u no holy pass my broda. MR V.P u think say nigerians go ever forgiv u n ur oga? Jona keep economy steady @ least person go fit use 1k take make small pot of soup use eba enter d soup life. But u n ur oga time now person no go fit use 5k do anytin. Hell fire wey dey wait una 2 eeeeeh for wetin una dey do us so. Don turn innocent girls to prostitute finish, boys to armed rubbers/ritualists. How wish u no be man of God, e get wetin i for tell u…
Dareth vgfdyui great bihcb IOM hg gfsytb rewstc
Jonathan’s administration is come and gone let him alone. Now it’s your turn for you to defeat Boko Haram for us to see.
this osibanjo,,is he truly a pastor in reddem??
osibanjo go look for work to do in niger rather than talkin rubbish.
We can see how well this regime is curbing the menace called boko haram
Please oh nobody should get annoyed, who is osinbajo n what is his position in Nigeria?
Hahahaha. If u ask me na who I go ask?
He is your vice president
He had the intention to. but, he was surrounded by wolfs and vampires…
Because you guys swore to make the country ungovernable for him
Na you get interest abi
Sorry oo, I tot dis Vp is pst so to say, God dey ooo
Which boko haram are you fighting oo? Cause I am confused.
Is it the one that at random lay siege and kill soldiers or the ones who had fulfilled the plan to disorganise Jonathan’s government or the one you made unknown arrangements with to return 21 Chibok girls?
Please, which boko haram oo
See his mouth!
Hmmmmmmm Sir hu told u dat Jonathan has no interest in defeatin boko haram? Plz wat ever u say will nt make pple lyk ur regime
Is that the condition they gave you b4 they allow into the board meeting room ?
Talking down on GEJ ???
Just know that you will remain a door side VP after they finish using you !
Pastor ni !
VP ko !
Please EFFECT the change your government promises .stop casting fort. Effect change
Mr man go face ur problem plz
You are the leader of the present govt economic team. Tell us what is in place to cushion the effect of the hard times Nigerians are facing and how to exit recession.
Clap for urself mr committed and interested have u defeated bokoharam what about yesterday attack are they ghost?pls unfortunate pastor respect urself and stop criticizing GEJ and leave tribalism alone.
He used to be a pastor. Now he’s a politician.
Shut up your mouth… Incompetent leaders
Has Buhari defeat BokoHaram? Or it is because Buhari released 5 BokoHaram leaders that where arrested in Jonathan regime and only 21 chiboke girls was released as a result of the exchange. Game of shame. Leave Jonathan alone and do your own. BOMB Is still exploding but not longer new to Nigeria ooooooo
Though i voted for APC + buhari
but 2day i beg God to forgive me
Allow Jonathan to be please
Are you sure that pastor osibanjo
Osinbajo go sleep joor.. U & Buhari when get interest to fight boko haram na which reasonable thing una don do since ? Instead of una to think of how to make Nigerians happy. U dey there dey talk nonsense. Make God punish u & president for the automatic hardship when una put us.

Ws all of this a game plan or just for him to have it in record that his church produced a V.P, cos I dnt understand why they wud gladly open their door to partner with a buhari who has no other agenda than revenge, kill, and mortgage Nigeria.

Continue to look back as you walk
The import is that you will fall because tiu have no full concentration on your journey
Dia is god
Good boy gone bad, he haf join bad gangs
A man cannot give what he doesn’t have… The president and his Vice are totally confused from the Dept of their heart they knew it. They are like men in the middle of an ocean drowning to death pretending to be swimming. God have mercy.
The truth hurts, but VP Osinbajo seems to be right. The truth is always bitter especially to losers!
Had GEJ tackled Boko Haram as he should have, perhaps he would still be president today.
The way boko haram spiraled out of control under GEJ is mind boggling. Given that Yar’dua did not waste time in cutting them to size. Another confirmation that GEJ purposely left them to fester was in the way the military was now able to record some victories against them 6 weeks to the election.
When GEJ realized that the boko haram issue was going to affect him at the polls as against being an advantage, it was then he gave a marching order to the military to push them back.
And to the surprise of many, the military that has been losing countless battles against boko haram for the past 2 years was now able to record victories against boko haram in 6 weeks. Something they have been unable to do in 2 years! Anybody that does not agree that this is fishy needs should have his/her brain properly medically examined!!.
And we have also heard and seen documents where the fighter jets and other weapons they claimed they bought was never bought, and in some cases grounded and cannibalized equipment was delivered while the Army and Air force chiefs smiled to the banks. In many cases, the National Security Adviser used money meant to fight a war to finance PDP elections – Does this show seriousness and a commitment to defeat boko haram?
GEJ does not know strategic planning. He got it all wrong. He thought boko haram will destabilize the major places PMB will gain votes from. When it became obvious that the exact opposite is what was going to happen, that was when they panicked, postponed the elections and then properly mobilized the military to degrade the boko haram to an extent.
I hope you saw that Buhari did not sack the service chiefs immediately. You need to properly assess and consider the past before you can properly manage the future. He properly got a history of boko haram from them before letting them go.
The mistakes of the past will continue to be documented in books and speeches to guide the coming generation. All the mistakes and ills of past governments of Nigeria are well documented. In fact, they have all been used as research materials at one time or the other.
GEJ will not be an exception. All his mistakes, ill-decisions and miscalculations will also be assessed for years to come. When PMB concludes his term in office, his own records will also be there for discussion and scrutiny for years to come.
Continue to abuse Vice President Osinbajo, it doesn’t change the fact known even to a mad man on the street that GEJ and PDP were asleep while Boko Haram thrives.
Big mouth talk na free
How can he be interested when they are busy sharing money
Osi, u ar becoming the most foolish man on earth
Oooo u see your life pastor
