CNN interview: Boko Haram and Black West Africa not a priority

You want to know why world leaders gathered in France when 17 people were killed and none have particularly shown much interested in the madness happening in Northern Nigeria with Boko Haram? Well, it's because West Africa is not a priority to world leaders. Boko Haram is not a priority to the US. Wanted to share this video because this kinds of utterances need to be brought to the fore; this ultimately shows the way we as blacks or "Black West African" are viewed by advanced countries. Unbelievable. Please watch

You should not just post the video and briefly mention what is said in it. Use your power of the blog to also respond and react to the nonsense they talk about. If Black West Africa is not of priority to them, why do they station and still want to spread their military bases in our countries such as Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Liberia and others? Now it raises the question of how Boko Haram gets the weapon and finding they use in destroying Nigeria and Cameroun. Sad our useless leaders were very quick to make statements about the happenings in France yet forget what is happening in Nigeria by our President and neighbouring presidents.

BONARIO NNAGS said...

I believe in the assertion that no one can do you better than you.
Other countries have issues facing them,the world is already tired of Africa,we sought for independence with the belief we can stand on our own.
We should learn to overcome our problems just like others have been able to overcome theirs.
Why should they prioritize our issues,when we don't prioritize them over here.

Yes it's true black ppl esp the west African blacks are not in any form of priority to them white ppl or the westerners, sometimes I wonder if there's anyfin wrong in being a black African?

Anonymous said...

When we Africans begin to make ourselves priority then others can value us high too. You don't shit yourself and expect respect from others. Our leaders don't make us a priority, we are politically illiterate and allow foreign religion ruin our sense of reasoning. Until we change and take our matters seriously, let's not expect to be priority to others when we are not even priority to ourselves.

U can't blame them. We haven't priotized ourselves either. That's why the killings are still on going. We have lost lives but we act like it's not our business bcos it doesn't involve our families or politicians. We can't wait for outsiders to put our house in order for us when we haven't even realized that we have a problem. .."stealing is not corruption. .." we claim to be suffering yet Nigerians are among the biggest spenders outside the country. We have a long way to go. They'll treat us the way we treat ourselves. No two ways. They try to help us fight corruption but we still cover the corrupt ones. We're not ready or rather we're not showing that we are "help-able". I can't blame them

Anonymous said...

Of course Boko Haram is a priority to the US. Why were they insisting on entering Nigeria to 'fight' Boko Haram? Was it not after some of their secret services were allowed into Nigeria that more mayhem has been caused in the three affected States? And stop using this belittling phrase of yours to describe what the interview says if you cannot put a statement out to dismiss it. You are only scared because you are in their country. Nonsense....so silly and senseless.

Absolutely ridiculous "Black West Africa is Not a Priority"

eka said...

hmm,truly not surprised. But D Dean of that Uni is right sha..
1. the affected countries presidents should have solidarity fight against boko haram b4 it engulfs western africa
2. where is ECOWAS?
3. where is AU?
when all these bodies show action instead of speaking voluminous grammar on tv,then the rest of the world would be more concerned and probably show action..........

It's clear that Nigeria cannot rely on the US. Aside from the racist under tone - "white Africa and black Africa", the US really cannot be bothered about Nigeria unless there is something of benefit to them. France didn't rely on America to neutralize the recent threat / attacks. We need a government that is willing to take responsibility and protect the country

Linda this is the bitter truth. Boko haram doesn't directly affect usa so they don't care. But they fear the middle east terrorists because they could link into europe. And besides gej made the mistake of supporting the killing of gaddafi because libya is now a failed state and their armory is open to extremist organizations like boko haram, our border with chad is too porous.

salifu ebiojo said...

How do you expect US to consider us as priority when we ourselves are busy fighting for our own personal interest and all our movement is to attract favour from foreign countries. The presenter said the "President sent greetings to France that lost only 7persons while nothing was done in his own country were about 2000persons were killed in cold blood". Tell me nw, will u take such country as a serious country or consider it as a priority? It's time we come together and show some sign of seriousness b4 we consider the help of US and co and that's if need be because I believe this country is capable of bringing a stop to this insurgency and pride, glory will be returned to Nigeria, west African and Africa as whole. God bless the Africa continent

Linda please don't try to whip up racist sympathy. The man only said the conflict in "black" West Africa is not a concern to America as long as the violence doesn't spread and is localised.
I don't even see why anyone in the west should be worried about us. Days after we in Nigeria heard about the violence, Buhari's daughter was trending on twitter, even when we had all heard about what happened in Baga. It took tweets from Boris kodjoe, kourtney kardashian and Angelina Jolie to get our attention away from Buhari's daughter to Baga again. And we're here crying that the west doesn't care about us when we ourselves don't care.

Linda, what exactly do you expect them to say? What has your government done about Boko Haram? Your leaders are busy spending money on political campaign and you expect US and world leaders to come and spend their carefully planned and prioritized money on Boko Haram problems for your country. Every man for himself God for us all. In how many days did France gun down the terrorists? How much has the Nigerian government done about Boko Haram?
More so, developed foreign countries (expected of every country) have prioritized interventions for different developing countries in the world for which budgets are set aside. Terrorism is just not on their list for Black West Africa just as he spelt it out. It's a hard truth, but we have to accept it. They are honest people and will never call black white. North Africa is priority for terrorism because of their link to middle east and past experience. 9/11 incidence is a huge lesson.
They are investing a lot in Health in Black West Africa, which is one of their priorities.

AGB said...

I really get angry whenever I see you mumus calling on these foolish western governments to "help". Why wouldn't they always treat us like shit when all of you would line up like mumu slaves and be calling these fools to come help. Have they ever called our country to come to their aid before? Why should we be proudly calling another country to come & help take care of our country? I'm so freaking pissed.
Look,we simply need to start learning to take responsibility & solving our problems by ourselves instead of always looking for cheap ways of having other people solve our problems. Let me paint you guys a simple picture, 4 houses got hit by a hurricane. After the hurricane, 3 owners decided to get to work to fix their house. The last owner decided to sit around lazily waiting for all the other 3 owners to come & "help" build his house. Now, the 3 other guys see the last guy as an unserious person who expects them to leave their own problems of fixing their own houses to come and fix his own. Can you blame them for thinking like that? I really don't understand why we lazy around looking for who will "help" us. How would anyone respect us in such light?

As painful as it sounds to the black African, it is the truth! The whole of West Africa with probably a population of 280 million has a GDP that is smaller than Belgium. We are ravashed by wars, diseases and poverty which is founded on corruption. We are of nuisance value to the world and very little economic relevance. We produce nothing of importance to the world. The man has put it very clearly black Africa is of little value. Until we have our nations ruled by selfless leaders working for the people, we will remain backward and be despised as a people.

Linda u make me laugh. Until you live in the USA, then you will know how they truly see us. This also is the case in the UK and other advanced countries . Heck I work in a predominantly African American institution and they even say worse things about us.... This is even small and nothing to the initiated but it is the fault of the government of Nigeria where education Is not a priority and ill gotten wealth is celebrated. Drug dealers over here in the states are looked down on and they quickly look for ways to launder their money to look legit... That's a community that functions.... In Nigeria , people want sharia to be entrenched as law and the federal govt allows it happen..... GEJ has no regard for his own citizens and he wants to return as president..... Buhari cannot do much himself.... The fall if Nigeria evn before it had risen has started.... Black people have always been evil and that's why they let slavery happen... Now they want white people to help them stop killing themselves.... Shame

We dnt care for ourselves.... why should they care

4 days after the acclaimed baga killing, Mr president is still galivanting in the name of re-election and did not even mention it in any of his speeches.

it took him 3 mths to even accept the chibok girls were kidnapped in the first place.

The agreement with US military was that they will provide instructional support and training for Nigerian military and the responsibility of the government was to provide equipment; Alas, Nigeria could not keep to their part of the bargain.

The president and our leaders are not bothered why should other countries be.

Quite frankly if we don;t value our lives this is what we will continue to get. We have the capabilities to destroy these bastards yet we seek help cos we simply can't be forthright with ourselves. I was president i will clear out the military top bras to Lt Colonels, then start a rebuilding process. This essential as the generals only steal and pursue young girls around town.

That's d way our leaders present us to them, if our president could nt say anything about what happen in his own country, and this same man feel concern about what happen in other country which is not even up to 10% of d damage in his own country, do u wnt outsider to take it more serious ? Charity begins at home. Now I blv our president is clueless

Linda clearly we should understand that the message here is if our own leaders are unconcerned why should they be?

Since we are not a priority we should solve our problems by ourselves and stop waiting for them. We are capable for goodness sake. The dependence on the white man is disgusting. Nigeria and Africa needs to get their act together! !!

Well, who do we blame for such utterances? when our leaders are not showing the seriousness in tackling the menace, We then want the so called "World leaders" to cry more than the bereaved?

I don't see a problem with this attitude at all. It is not for the West to get involved and sort out West Africa's mess. Last I heard Nigeria was a democracy and if the president can't be bothered to show solidarity with his own people why the heck should someone else? I am sick and tired of Africans acting like children. On the one hand it is you oyibos this you oyibos that but then when they leave us to our own self-created mess we start shouting. This isn't just BH, it is Ebola etc etc....

WESTERN leaders (not sure what that African despot was doing marching) came together to support one another after the Paris attacks. Oya now invite African leaders to march in Abuja and see who will come. Start showing empathy for one another and then perhaps the world will take us seriously.

Can You blame them? When you refuse to put your house in order and also fail to give it the respect it deserves. It's time for Africa to rise up and re-build her fallen walls. http://www.beriahng.com/2015/01/linda-ikeji-is-not-just-blogger-but.html

This man called Jonathan has simply just woefully let Nigeria be shamed utterly on the world stage. How the fuck can't a whole regional power like Nigeria contain little bastard insurgents like boko haram? It's really annoying. It's more shameful that we have to shamefully be looking to other countries to come & help us root out these small insurgents. Like Reverend Father Mbuka rightly said, "Now imagine a scenario where a president cannot fight a simple insurgency....this is not external country attack o,it is not just like another country invaded Nigeria,it is an intra-distraction". We don't have a leader in this country heading this nation at the moment.

It makes sense, Nigerians have to help themselves on this one, U.S already have their hands full.
Okay let's imagine U.S wants to intervene, where would they even start from???

Some Nigerians will continue to feast on sentiments, delusions and selfish interests until Boko Haram arrives at their doorsteps. The Nigerian military has become politicized, corrupt and incapacitated. All we keep getting are damage control speeches from defence headquarters, while soldiers are made to work under inhumane and substandard conditions. The president is busy expanding his re-election campaign train everywhere including parts of the country where the citizens are not sure they'll be alive the next day let alone still remaining within the Nigerian territory by the time Boko Haram arrives their villages, as their villages may be part of Nigeria in the morning but before night falls into Boko Haram captured territory.With all these, anyone who expects the international communities to take us seriously should think again, even Chad had to withdraw its troops from Nigeria while pledging its support to Cameroun to help ward off Boko Haram from the fringes of Cameroun. Nigeria needs to put its house in order before it can gain trust and tangible support from the international communities.

We need to solve our own problems instead of waiting for help from the Western World. This is a wake up call for Africa especially Nigeria.

Eugene Oiku said...

Since we are not a priority to the west , We should stop making them our priority, I refuse to believe that Boko Haram has become bigger than our Nigerian army,We can handle this menace if these factors are put into play ,Equip the Army ,Our Government just recieved 1bill last year why are the soldiers being made to buy their own arms?Secondly increase their moral instead of sentencing them to death over refusal to fight with no armour.Boko haram has grown from a small group of insurgents to a massive terrorist group and GEJ needs to realize that this is not business as usual but this is a full scale war,He needs stop pointing fingers and do the needful.Why aren't we carrying out airs trikes?When I Say airs trikes I don't mean the stupid helicopters strikes being carried out now .

linda, you are funny. How can the west take us priority when the useless govt we have here cannot even come to the aid of baga people nor take responsibility. the stupid hungry spokesman has not even said anything. the dumb dullard is busy campaigning every where as if we don't know his stooges are gonna rig the election in his favour. All I know is that jonathan must go. he looks so silly and incompetent

well its all said now, when a man hasn't properly attended to the issues of his house by keeping it in order what else does he expect from others,if i must ask what significant effort is Jonathan doing about boko haram? his silence,non nonchalant and laize-affair attitude is really not what is going to make the international community place him as a priority,the Nigerian Soldiers are one of the best in Africa, so why hasn't the president sat down with his cabinet to look into this issue that is fast spreading and spilling into nearby countries, and fortify our soldiers and military to put an end to this madness, if he is waiting for international community well am sure he has heard their response, this is our issue,we can handle this if we have a strong, firm and decisive leader in this country,now he is going around now campaigning to return back to power in February but has forgotten our girls who no one now knows their fate so far....this is pathetic,you see why Nigeria cant be a priority?

Nnenne George said...

We don't have to blame them...but blame our leaders and bad governance...we can't expect them to kill themselves on our behalf when every weekends our leaders are busy somewhere lavishing money from one wedding party, wedding anniversary(plus owambeee) to another neglecting what's at stake.We really don't appear like people in need of help. So nobody is ready to die for u when you're not ready to die for yourself...

But why should it be a priority for them when Black West African Presidents are not treating the death of their OWN citizen as a priority.

Anonymous said...

Until black Africa wakes up and realizes that it is responsible for it's own sustenance and development, this menace will continue. We cannot keep depending on the west. Where our president utters statements like "America will know", it goes to show the level of seriousness government attaches to our security as a people and a nation. I will say God help us, but it's high time we stood up to help ourselves. God is always just, if we do our part He will do His.

Anonymous said...

yorubas will say, ''ile la ti n ko e so rode''. We will blame the west but before then, let's look within us. Our own President never said anything about the baga killings but yet sent words to France and also went about with his campaign. Also, how many of us Nigerians went on the street to protest this killings in the North just to be on the side of our fellow country men Or probably just go on the street to show our solidarity with the victims and pressurised the government on doing something substantial to cub this manace?
We don't show affection for ourselves here, our then do we expect outsiders to show affection for us? We hate ourselves in this country. We are divided. For us to be justified in blaming the west, we need come together as one family with one voice.
However, i'll only blame the west for allowing these idiots called boko haram to gains access to weapons (e.g. Libya). They knew when these weapons were being transported to west africa but did nothing to stop it when they were responsible for the Libyan rebels gaining access to same to fight Otunba Gadaffi(orun re o).
So much to say on this devastating issue but...

abisola agbaje said...

Lets not turn this into a race issue. The truth hurts doesn't it? Compare what France brings to the world table and what Nigeria brings?. It is about time we brought our leaders to book. They have defaced this country and reduced our dear nation to garbage. Why won't an American wnabe talk about our Nigeria like that!

omoiroro omu said...

so we are not a priority until we are totally wiped out yeah?!!
well all i heard there was a bit racist they are not concerned with BLACK west africa but once it reaches WHITE north africa they can swoop in.
i just hope they know that their purposeful refusal to help us will result in the further loss of innocent lives. Edmund Burke said "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
i personally believe that a good man cannot watch evil prevail and do nothing about it. if you choose not to help you are only as evil as those who perpetrate these evil acts. you either stand together with us or against us.#godblessnigeria

To be honest West Africans and entire sub saharan Africans should not start this mentality of always feeling like a victim if the rest of the world does not want to help us fight Boko Haram to hell with them. Nigerians all of can do this without international help it's time for us to stop this whole idea of always looking for the western world to help us we as Africans already know how the view us so why do we want to associate our self with those people.

Zain said...

Linda ar u surprise... U ar a frequent international traveler so u should know better. D western world does not care about Africans, especially d black Africans... It really hurts to see Africans not in unity...Only Africans can care for Africa, only Africans can take care of their problems. they have all it takes but they lack faith and confidence in themselves...

Stephanie Chizzy said...

But we are not even a priority to ourselves Linda. Patience Jonathan rightly said in her "diaris God" video that u can't cry more than the bereaved. Till today, protests are still going on in France because 17 people were killed but in Nigeria, we are preparing for elections. Before we accuse other people of neglecting us, we should ask ourselves how much interest we have shown in saving ourselves. Truth be told , Boko Haram is not even a priority to you Linda. When something is a priority to someone, you don't need a soothsayer to tell you. World leaders are very concerned about France because the death of the 17 people threw the entire country off balance. In Nigeria, apparently we are still stable with everything that has been going on in the north. How many posts do you see on social networks from Nigerians condemning terrorism other than those from northerners? I mean everyone is busy campaigning for one candidate or another, compare it with posts on social network from the People in France, that alone will buttress my point. Ngwa Byee!

It is up to our leaders to tackle our problems and not wait for 'world leaders' to come to our aid.

Its breaks my heart when i see videos like this, but he actually spoke his mind. Its really not their fault but the fault of our so called leaders. Why would our president commiserate with France when they are yet to do same regarding what is happenning in northern Nigeria. The truth is that, Boko Haram is been sponsored by either Americans or British with their agents and the help of some Nigerians, even the ISIS was created by the secret service in the US, enough said....
