Dr.Datti Ahmed
By SaharaReporters, New York

The Boko Haram amnesty committee set up by President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday has suffered yet another blow as a second nominee, Dr. Ibrahim Datti Ahmed pulled out of the committee today.

The renowned medical doctor and President of the Supreme Council of Sharia in Nigeria, Dr. Datti will be the second person to pull out of the committee in the last  24 hours.

Yesterday, civil rights activist Shehu Sanni and president of Kaduna-based Civil Rights Congress (CRC) pulled out of the committee through an announcement on twitter. Comrade Sanni said the Nigerian president did not contact him before including his name.

@Baba Gambo

Why must you use the term 'ignite'? Does it mean any time someone says something against Islam or Mohammed, then it means instant death or destruction of lives and property? All these have gone to buttress the fact that Islam is NOT a religion of peace after all; it is a religion of blood-letting and human sacrifice. Why can Muslims not use debates, human logic and arguments to address issues tendered against their religion? The use of force to counter any statement against Islam and Mohammed goes to say that the Muslims are bereft of all ideas and philosophies associated with their religious belief; and so the only available means of reaction is to resort to violence! That's very unfortunate and unacceptable in any modern society. The Muslim's notoriety for terrorism is beginning to be seen all over the world. Muslims should think and quickly come out of this religion for IT IS not a religion!

RE - Who Pulled Out Of What? They Are All Boko Haram Members!

@ Omoaholo Imogirie ( April 19, 2013 - 01:59  )
The writer should have think twice before making such comments, afterall he needs not to generalise on all the nothern muslims, and he also needs to tender apology for such comments on the PROPHET MUHAMMAD (S.A.W). Such issues and comments can do more destruction, more harm than good to any one. It is true that every body needs peace in Nigeria and many souls were lost in this country, but that can not in any way attributes such losts with the highly respected PROPHET who teaches only peace. Omoaholo Imogirie , you have not done the MUSLIMS any justice and believe me, the comment can ignite any thing in Nigeria. Please reject them for the betterment of unity and peace..

AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. WE

AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. WE KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED WHILE WACTHING THIS CHARADE THAT PASSES FOR THE PRESIDENCY'S MASTER PLAN.

RE: DATTI AHMED AND SHEHU SANNI REFUSAL TO ACCEPT NOMINATION

That these persons pulled out are reasonable. If you will accept nomination purely because you believe it is a juicy office even though you were never consulted before the government went to the media to announce your name, then you should check your value system and your head. So if you will be called to lead a death squad and you will be well rewarded that means you will accept the nomination. Now I know why this country's problem will linger. Datti Ahmed and Shehu Sanni have done the right thing and there may be many things happening behind the scene that you and I do not know. Why should a reasonable President go on air to embarass an individual to accept a nomination. That is called psychological blackmail. I QUIT.

Constitution of Amnesty Committee

Who dare say Datti and Shehu Sani are well respected people in the north. as far i am concern nobody recognize these blood suckers sponsoring Boko Haram. The same people clamouring for amnesty for their brothers (BH), now turn back declining the membership, whom do they want to do the work for them. NIGERIANS it's time now to open your eyes and see what i have been seen before. They are on a mission and that's why they will never want peace in the country until they fully execute the already mission designed for them by their fulani brother (Uthman Danfodio). May God never allow them to succeed in Jesus Name.

DATTI et SHEHU SANI

I have only one question for Shehu Sani and Sheik Datti> If they were nominated to the office of MINISTER will they reject it because they were not contacted first?????

@Anonymous: 'think before you comment'

It has become a norm in Nigeria to appoint or dismiss people over the media or other public means of info dissemination! If the noisemaker and hypocrite, Shehu Sanni, who has now made a nonsense of his human rights poise were appointed a minister or any other national office the same way, he would have been throwing jubilation parties all over the place! Who is Shehu Sanni to say that he was not personally consulted by the president before such appointment? People may understand that conventions are not necessarily written but yet are binding norms. That was how somebody came on this forum to say that geopolitical zones are null and void since they are not in the Constitution! But it is already a convention in Nigeria since it is used in most national matters! So it has become a binding matter! It is as binding as matters written in the Constitution; ditto for the conventional way of making appointments in Nigeria. Such may not hold elsewhere but each nation has its own idiosyncrasy.

Non sense!

Non-sense, late the chicken so called president go ahead and grant that amnesty. He don't knw now but surely he we see sooner. The islamits want to islamised the country ryt, and now they want to use FG money to do that. He soon see it when his head is placed on his chest, he surrounded by them so don't border to ask how.

COW DIES

My friend surprises ll never finish in naja, Mr. OBJ took his time to consult with the BH at the beginning of this Admin only for presd to disgrace him.Henry (SA Prisoner) committed his atrocities from niger delta to other neighboring African countries and disgrace naja on her 50th anniversary ceremony with 1st boom blast in the history of Abuja. surprisingly the no. 1 citizen exonerate him and his brothers from the accusation who is the fool.
The best that can happen to this country is for it to split, we at the north don't need your oil, your salty water or vegetation. we love our desert and we are proud of it to developed Lagos and the bloodsucking oil of the niger delta. save your breath and enjoy your GOODLUCK.

If they were nominated to

If they were nominated to head the Ministries of Petroleum and finance as Ministers of Petroleum and Finance respectively, would they turn it down on the basis of no prior briefing? These Northern chaps are bent on killing and wasting innocent blood. 1914, what irony of life bringing in together of murderers!

Re:sapele water

It seem you are coward for not displying your true identity , but use media and abuse the northern people. But what you said is not perculiar to north rather than southern part of nigeria,..wajoko ! Is part of your culture , that is why is hardly to get a home without a harlot or arm robber busy patroning abuja and lagos looking for customers. But with regard to amnesty let the govt that formed the group , negotiate with them. The now believed they are not ghost becouse they started approching them .What about the souls of innocent and ordinary people they lost before ?

pity

I'm really sorry for Jonathan!!!!.really the man is not capable of thinking on his own.pity

BOKO HARAM SUFFERS ANOTHER SET BACK.

IF his name was announced as the secretary to the federal govt,he will call it the will of ALLAH with or without consultation he will accept.

Now come and settle the problem caused by your people you say no.The truth will come out soon.

Who are these poor idiots waiting for President to call them

Who are these poor idiots waiting for President 2call them? Nonsense. Jona is an Ijaw. He has a core Igbo man, NOT Ibo, as army chief. These two SS&SE citizens are nt used 2prostrating. This is not 1960-1999 when these Northern scallywags ruined continent Nigeria frm Lagos unchallenged by their "Brave" hosts...Lets face it & call a spade a spade. D arrogance & stupidity of these unproductive North has reached intolerable limits. It is also laughable how the West fraternizes & cringes at d intimidation frm these idiots. Now they, the West are running left, right, centre, back & forth coming up wit mergers wit Northern elements in order 2transfer power 2d North which has been bombing & kiling worshipers & passengers just bcos they want power. D West has been cowed & stampeded 2its knees. So d West wants power 2go back to d North. Don't d SS&SE & Igbos hav right 2be President of continent Nigeria? It will be fire for fire.God bless United SS&SE

I do not wish the Committee well!

In fact, I am glad, and wish that they would all REJECT THEIR APPOINTMENTS! I pray that the Committee fails! Boko Harams do not need 'AMNESTY'. They need to be flushed out by a COMPETENT AND INTELLIGENCE LED SECURITY NETWORK.

And to those who are not READING BETWEEN THE LINES and see the President's MASTER-STROKES, these REJECTIONS are making his case, THAT AMNESTY IS NOT WHAT BOKO HARAMS NEED. He agreed to the 'CLAMOUR' because a section of the Country called for it. BUT DEEP DOWN, he knows it wouldn't succeed! And it is becoming GLARING by THESE REJECTIONS! He is not 'DUMB' after all!

BTW, WHO SAYS THIS MAN IS DUMB? I WANT JONATHAN'S 'DUMBO PORTION'! THE TYPE THAT MAKES ONE A UNIVERSITY DON. AND PROPELS ONE FROM DEP GOVERNOR, TO GOVERNOR, THEN VP, AND LASTLY PRESIDENT! I WANT THE SAME 'PORTION'! If this is what 'DUMBO' does to people, then God, I DON'T WANT TO BE SMART!

Why are these Nigerians

Why are these Nigerians rejecting the offer yto come and "EAT"

Why does it take weeks 4

Why does it take weeks 4 comments to appear on SR-haba? Must everything Nigeria be so problematic even in the USA? Yet they are the ones who use their loud mouths to blame government for lack of water, roads, light and safe clinics. Then call the president dumbo-but cannot manage a small outfit like SR. If you aint able to handle a simple media organisation like SR, is it aso rock that buhari-and tinubu would be able to take care of? The duo are a disgrace to the nation-Are they the first people to be appointed by government on AIR without due consultation? Rather than have d cows see it as a privilege--an opportunity to serve the nation that used our oil resources to send them to school-them want to abuse the honor done to dem! Soon they would be calling on government to give them state burials--what would they say to their children tomorrow? That they rejected call to national duty abi? Madness of the highest order-what a shame

@Olamide - No one needs to know the reason!

We do not need to know the reason WHY ANYBODY WILL REFUSE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP RESTORE PEACE IN HIS REGION AND THEIR COUNTRY! I don't want to know the reason! In fact, there is no REASON GOOD ENOUGH, to refuse to HELP RESTORE PEACE AND END THE KILLINGS AND CARNAGE!

And if his reason is the same as the reasons given by SANI SHEHU, then that again is unfortunate! It is not GOOD ENOUGH REASON to refuse because:

1. YOU HAD NOT YET BEEN CONSULTED. (It may be bad practice, on the part of Government, but that is not enough to cause a REJECTION and THROW OUT THE BABY WITH THE BATHWATER), OR
2. REJECT BECAUSE YOUR PREFERRED PERSON WAS NOT APPOINTED ON THE COMMITTEE!

THAT IS ARRANT NONSENSE! They should come up with very GOOD REASONS than those!

Dr. Ahmad is the co-founder

Dr. Ahmad is the co-founder of Boko Haram... Ahmad was, until Mohammed Yusuf's death co-member of the Supreme Council of Shari'a in Nigeria... Dr. Ahmad was the doctor who told the Muslims not to accept polio vaccines because it is laced with contraceptives... The same Dr. Ahmad was the uncultured guy who slapped Dr. Tahir Ibrahim the Talban Bauchi at the height of Obasanjo's third term bid.... Dr. Ahmad it was who generated so much heat about mediating on behalf of Boko Haram with the Fed Government, but now that he's got the chance, he is zooming off... Arrogant, boastful and most times stupidly thinks he is God's spokesman....

Ahmed Datti pulls out

Why won't Datti pulls out..can someone tell me hw many committees were constituted by Gej admin and their recommendations thrown away even b4 submission of reports. .Ahmed lemu report on election crisis, Ribadu report, and all the resolutions or both chambers referred to as mere advicery...who will waste his time and at the end be termed mere advicery...let them explore means of resolving the crisis...force alone has never quel insurgency.

You Agreement....?

Asede, you are in agreement that the president can give an assignment to somebody without the person being informed of such assignment? What manner of distorted reasoning are you supporting? Only dafts run governments in Nigeria. God will us all. AMEN

deception

why are nigerians so gullible that we cannot just be smart for ones. gej is the bokoharam himself. He is the one using bokoharam to distract nigerians knowing how incompetent he is. Why is it that each time he commits a blunder that is when bh would strike, is it not obvious? Nigerians wake up.

You started on well but yet

You started on well but yet ending up spewing garbage. What you deserve is no different from what you claim on others!

@ 'SAD' BY ASEDE HENRY

You have captured the mood so completely that there is nothing more that can be added. These goons are only playing games when they call on the govt to act but now that they have been given the opportunity to prove their sincerity, they suddenly develop cold feet and spin out excuses. What is going on now in some parts of the north is a carefully planned assault to regain political control and spread a deadly virus in the guise of religion. These people know everything about boko haram and for as long as there is a remote possibility that this fits into their plan, they will do all within their powers to keep it alive. None of them wants an end to boko haram because that will render them irrelevant. This is seen in their ironical position of not wanting a military solution while at the same time rejecting to work towards an amnesty. Which way should the country go?
The govt should develop the necessary will and deploy the military might to crush this mess.

Frankenstein

They have created a monster-Frankestein. Who will now bail the cat? If you Northerners don't destroy this monster, it will destroy you and the stupid South.

PLEASE LET'S SPLIT IN THE COUNTRY

I AM ONE HUNDRED PERCENT IN AGREEMENT THAT NIGERIA SHOULD SPLIT INTO NORTH, SOUTH EAST (TO INCLUDE NIGER DELTA), AND SOUTH WEST. THIS WILL BE PERFECT.

Who Pulled Out Of What? They Are All Boko Haram Members!

Please do not mind the senseless Northern Muslims. They are all family of the Boko Haram. They are ashamed of their dirty behaviors. The Northern Muslims think they can hide and claim Amnesty for themselves. Their shameless behaviors make them look bad to appear in person and be pardon for the distortions of innocent lives and properties of non Muslims. Did prophet muhammad have shame? He preached violence against those who refused to accept him as a prophet. How can God direct such lunatic to kill for Him? It is God that says vengeance is of His & also says that thou shalt not kill. This lunatic prophet muhammad who soiled his hands with blood wants to make himself equal to Christ who did not kill but forgave those that killed. Dog shit be upon prophet muhammad.

The leaders are the reflection of you as a group

You cant be better than your leaders, the kind of leaders you have shows the kind of people you are QED. SO if your leaders are Mumus it shows that all you are Mumus as well, if your leaders are thieves it show that all of you are thieves.

Amnesty Committee is dead on Arrival

President Jonathan may not be a clever President by the usual metrics of assessing one; or, for that matter, understand a circling of the wagons following the Sultan of Sokoto’s public declaration of non-involvement with the Boko Haram amnesty committee, leading Dr. Datti’s own virtual renunciation of it.

But if President Jonathan can see the wood for the trees, this time, he’d see that his announced Boko Haram amnesty committee is dead on arrival, once the duo have publicly distanced themselves from it, shortly after Boko Haram’s denunciation of it.

Northern Hypocrites

Shehu Sanni is one of the noted Northern hypocrites who say one thing and do another. He had in the past repeatedly consulted with Boko Haram terrorists without mandate from anyboby. At those times, he had tried to impose his solutions on the president and on everybody else.

Now that he has received a mandate, he wants the president to kneel down for him first. What an arrogant hypocrite.

It will be good if they all withdraw so that JFT can have free hand. Who will blame Jonathan? After all these people are the creators and sponsors of BH.
