Update on President Jonathan's security meeting today

The 7 hour extraordinary meeting President Jonathan ordered with the Service Chiefs has ended in the state house. Briefing newsmen after the meeting, the Minister of Information, Labaran Maku said the meeting focused on the missing Chibok girls and yesterday's bomb blast.

According to Maku, President Jonathan, while addressing the issue of the missing schoolgirls, said "wherever the girls are in the world, we will get them back, apprehend and punish the culprits." 
"On the unfortunate kidnap of the Chibok girls, the security chiefs briefed the meeting on efforts so far made to locate and rescue the girls, and bring the perpetrators to justice. Extensive and intensive aerial surveillance by the Air Force has been carried out in all the routes leading into and out of Chibok up to the Chad and Cameroun borders. Other parts of Borno and Adamawa states are also under the searchlight. Every information relayed to security agencies has so far been investigated, including the search of all places suspected as a possible hide-away of the kidnapped girls", Maku said. Continue..
Maku said President Jonathan understands the plight of the parents and says Nigerians are behind them
"The president’s heart goes out to these our unfortunate daughters who have had to endure the trauma of abduction and separation from their loved ones. The government and people of Nigeria stand solidly by them".
On the recent Bomb blast, he said President Jonathan commiserates with the families that lost loved ones during the attack and has ordered that security agencies increase surveillance and also expedite action in their investigations so that those behind the dastard acts will be brought to book. He also said President Jonathan has directed that all the victims in the various federal hospitals be treated freely, saying the Federal Government would take up all bills incurred.
 
On the forthcoming World Economic Summit taking place in Abuja from Wednesday May 7th to Friday May 9th, he said there was no going back. Reports has it that Federal Government offices and schools are to be closed down as from Wednesday next week to Friday so as to control human and vehicular traffic during the period of the summit. 
 
The meeting had in attendance Vice President Namadi Sambo,  Minister of State for FCT Jumole Akinjide, Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Interior Minister Abba Moro as well as Trade and Investment Minister Olusegun Aganga. Service Chiefs in attendance includes Defence Minister  General Aliyu Gusau (rtd), National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki,  Chief of Defense Staff Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh, Chief of Army Staff Lt General Kenneth Minimah, Chief of Air Staff Air Marshall Ademola Amosu, Chief of Naval Staff Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin, Inspector- General of Police Mohammed Abubakar and Director-General of State Security Service Ita Ekpeyong.

JJ said...

The President should have opened the meeting by reliving the service Chiefs of their jobs. They are simply not up to the job. The Service Chiefs (Ihejirika & Co), who were there before these new group had a better understanding of the task and how to tackle it. They had record success until they were removed for obvious political reasons. The Northern leadership were complaining if high handed ness on the part of the Ihejirika group. So they removed them abd brought in people who don't have a handle on the job. How many more killings and kidnappings will take for GEJ to know he has the wrong people on the job. It reflects badly on him and the international community tend to feel he doesn't have a handle on the threat Boko Haram poses to the country.

Wow seeing this pic makes me feel for Gej, he's lost alot of weight. We might think all these happenings dont affect him but its obvious they do. Gej ur enemies want you to step down, don't, nigeria doesn't belong to the hausas alone so what's their problem? They want to be on power at all cost and control oil money that doesn't even belong to them. Let nigeria separate so everybody can keep their resources. They want an islamic country and we say no to that. The northerners have too many issues so please let us leave them to their own palava.

Its only in a country like Nigeria that bad things happen n we blame the president. If Jonathan is so useless let's all travel 2 d forest wia they are nau?. Terrorists attack America they all stand by their president 2 ensure d culprits are brought to book. Nigerian should learn 2 b supportive. The soldiers out there are humans too. N SO MANY of them have lost their lives too. Nigerian need 2 support each other realize we are 1 wiv this we can withstand Boko Haram. It's obvious it's no more a political tin, Boko Haram has gone out of hand. Any body, rich or poor, east, west, south n north, civilians, soldiers, anybody!! Can b a victim.

Abeg he shld check his 'inner cacus'. The whole world musnt even know he is doing his "Meetings". He shld combat the issue and address the country. Us embassy are already writing to his citizens & gearing up to protect them, yet he couldn't reach out to protect his, esp in Ghana and Malaysia when they cried out for the mal treatment meted on them. He shld just do smfin to kill this insurgencies..we tired. I am

Shut your mouths and use your brains better-still pray to God and stop insinuating rubbish about the President. You or even you father couldn't do better.

Their sponsors are part of government and are top politicians who don't just like a southern president. It takes intelligence to fish them out and deal with them. All these insults on GEJ shows how shallow minded some Nigerian peeps are...When you become president, you can lock all the boarders and make your country an island..EWU!!!

@anon 4:06 shut up we know you are working for him . How can you compare the Nigerian government to the US government , what you fail to understand is the Nigerian government have proven time without number that they don't care about the welfare of their citizens while the US government has proven time without number that they care about the welfare of their citizens . How can we support a president who doesn't support the citizens they are leading , who acts as if he is doing us a favour by saying they will take care if all hospital bills of the nyanya bomb victims that are being treated in government hospitals and his wife acts as if she is doing is a favour by providing hospital equipment . Which is what he is meant to be doing , however I don't think he should take all of the blame all if those useless ministers and security chiefs that were given money for their sector to improve security that chopped the money are also to blame , and I don't blame the soldiers I blame the leaders because they are not providing the adequate resources for the soldiers to combat Boko haram . And it is political , all if the people that are suffering from these attacks are poor people , the rich people are fine and safe but the poor are not . GEJ needs to check his staff because we all know there is a snake among them , a lot of the people mentioned above are northerners . I personally believe that because GEJ is a southerner they want to make sure the country is in total chaos , but he also needs to be tough GEJ is very weak . You guys should remember during the 2011 election time , a candidate said if he doesn't win the country will be ungovernable now see . The real question we should be asking is how on earth can Boko haram afford all of their weapons ??? Who is funding these idiots ??? I wouldn't be surprised if it was some northern politician or America .
