Former Petroluem Minister, Prof Tam David West has again taken a swipe at the President describing as being incompetent and perhaps afraid of Boko Haram. He could see no other explanation for the refusal of the President to visit Chibok after the abduction of the Chibok girls by the Boko Haram group. He believes that it was wrong for Jonathan to have invited the parents of the girls to Abuja when he should have visited them to give a psychological and emotional support.
“Anyone that is complacent about the state of affairs in the country is an enemy of Nigeria. It is a terrible situation and we should be ashamed, President Jonathan should be ashamed. He is the Commander-in-Chief and the number one security officer and citizen of the state.
“Over 200 of your girls taken away from your territory for the past three months and you are still talking. First, you are not even sure, his wife said nothing happened, then he also did not believe that anything happened and later he changed and said he knows where they are. If you say you know where they are, why can’t you save them?
“With all the security forces in the country, you cannot bring them. Our President is afraid of Boko Haram. He claimed they have infiltrated his cabinet and isn’t he ashamed? Since you know they have infiltrated your cabinet, why don’t you expose them?
“Up till now, he has not gone to Chibok and when he made that cosmetic move to see them, he invited the parents to come to Abuja and when they were going, he gave them money which has now been exposed and that is why Boko Haram has been so because they know that the President is weak.” He said.
