President Jonathan rules out amnesty for Boko Haram Sects
- Written by Abdullateef Abubakar Jos
``You cannot declare amnesty for ghost. Boko Haram is operating like a ghost, they have remained invisible.
``They have to show their faces and state their problems for government to think of amnesty.
``The amnesty issue of Niger Delta was that if you call them they will come and tell you their grievances rightly or wrongly so,
let the Boko Haram come and tell us their problems,’’ he said. .
The president refuted claims that his visit to the state was belated, saying: ``it is not true that the president did not show
concern for Borno and Yobe following the security challenges.
``I would have been in Yobe much earlier because what affects Yobe or any part of Nigeria, affects the entire country.
``I have come to reassure the people of Yobe that there is no difference between Yobe and other parts of the country nor do I discriminate between sections of the country.’’
According to him, the issue of terror is global because the victims are not limited to citizens of that area or country alone. It
has nothing to do with politics.
Jonathan said government would liaise with the affected states to rehabilitate the victims, women and orphans.
