What Does Datti Know About Boko Haram?
What informed the federal government’s decision to even agree to dialogue with Boko Haram last week, with Dr. Ibrahim Datti as mediator? Tired of fighting terrorists and murderers, and tired of protecting its citizens?I suspect two things might have happened: It is either members of the deadly sect and their sponsors are fast losing ground to security agencies and, by extension, the war and wanted soft - landing or some people in the corridor of power wanted to prove to President Goodluck Jonathan how influential they are.

Sensing that President Jonathan had pulled a fast one on him by tacitly disqualifying him from the 2015 PDP presidential race since he and President Jonathan's hand picked favourite for the PDP chairmanship come from the same state (and the party chairman and the presidential candidate cannot come from the same state) the wily Atiku Abubakar had pulled all his strings to see to it that his zone, the Northeast, rejected Bamanga Tukur in favourite of Musa Babayo, the outgoing National Secretary of the PDP.
Babayo scored 14 votes to beat Tukur who got 2 votes, with Alhaji Ibrahim Bunu and Dr Shettima Mustapha also getting 2 votes each. Former Bauchi governor Ahmadu Adamu Mua’zu and outgoing PDP publicity secretary Rufai Alkali scored 1 vote each. Add a comment
