Enough Is Enough, Northern Christian Group Warns Government, Condemns Amnesty Initiative For Boko Haram

The Northern Christians Forum has demanded that the federal government return all schools and hospitals taken from Christians, and pay compensation for having ruined them.

In a statement signed by its chairman, Evangelist Matthew Owojaiye, the Forum also demanded the sum of N5 billion for Christian schools as has been given to Muslims, and an equal amount to be given to be given annually henceforth to both Muslim and Christian schools.

In the statement which was released today, the group said that contemplating granting amnesty to the people who have wrought wanton destruction of lives and properties in Nigeria is a call to other interest groups to rise up in arms against their fatherland, in order to be blessed when such an action should be treated as treason!

It said it totally objects to even discussing amnesty in the first place when nothing has been done for the victims of Boko Haram violence. “Intimidating the Federal Government to grant amnesty is the highest display of hypocrisy and impatriotism,” it said, asking if the proponents of the idea are not indirectly admitting that they are the shadows or ghosts behind the Boko Haram.

“The Northern Christians Forum have been marginalized, deliberately underdeveloped, treated like vassals, seriously brutalized and slaughtered under the watchful eyes of this regime more than in any other regime before,” the statement said.  “Government spent billions of naira on nomadic education, N5 billion on almajiri schools which is specifically for Muslims, while Christian schools and hospitals taken over by the Government without compensations are still held tight by Government.”

It regretted that while Boko Haram has tried to annihilate its members as well as their Igbo Christian brothers, the Government is talking about granting them amnesty without saying a word about the people victims.

“Who underdeveloped the Muslim North?” the statement asked.  “It is definitely not the Jonathan Government, neither the Christians in the North! It is the Northern Muslim ELITES that impoverished the Northern Muslim youth. The Northern Muslim Elites pocketed the largess that came to the North. Only they and their families benefitted. They turned the attention of Boko Haram to the innocent Christians in the North.”

It is even more annoying, the group said, that instead of the Northern Muslim Elites releasing 50% of their wealth to solve the poverty problem of the Muslims North they are crying and putting pressures and intimidating the Federal Government to set up a Boko Haram commission.

“It is wickedness, since the post-election violence, thousands of Christians have been killed or maimed, thousands of Christian businesses have been ruined, and hundreds of Churches destroyed or closed down for supporting the Jonathan Administration. Nobody is talking about compensating the innocent people who have been affected.”

The group, which is also demanding the establishment of a Northern Minority Commission, at the ministerial level, warned all those who collude or sponsor Boko Haram or refuse to come to the help of Christians for political or economic reasons to know that heaven is watching and NOBODY will go free!

“The blood of the Christian martyrs is crying to haven for justice,” the statement said.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! NOBODY SHOULD TAKE US FOR GRANTED!

The Northern Christians Forum have been marginalized, deliberately underdeveloped, treated like vassals, seriously brutalized and slaughtered under the watchful eyes of this regime more than in any other regime before. Government spent billions of naira on nomadic education, N5 billion on almajiri schools which is specifically for muslims, while Christian schools and hospitals taken over by the Government without compensations are still held tight by Government.

Boko Haram has tried to annihilate us and our Igbo Christian brothers and now the Government is talking about granting them amnesty without saying a word about the people they bombed, slaughtered and traumatized.

 Who underdeveloped the muslim North? It is definitely not the Jonathan Government, neither the Christians in the North! It is the Northern muslim ELITES that impoverished the Northern muslim youth. The Northern muslim Elites pocketed the largess that came to the North. Only they and their families benefitted. They turned the attention of Boko Haram to the innocent Christians in the North.

 

 It is even more annoying that instead of the Northern muslim Elites releasing 50% of their wealth to solve the poverty problem of the muslims North they are crying and putting pressures and intimidating the Federal Government to set up a Boko Haram commission.

 

 It is wickedness, since the post election violence, thousands of Christians have been killed or maimed, thousands of Christian businesses have been ruined, and hundreds of Churches destroyed or closed down for supporting the Jonathan Administration. Nobody is talking about compensating the innocent people who have been affected.

 

 Intimidating the Federal Government to grant amnesty is the highest display of hypocrisy and impatriotism. Are such people not indirectly admitting that they are the shadows or ghosts behind the Boko Haram?

 

 We totally object to even discussing AMNESTY when nothing has been done for the victims of the Boko Haram.

 Let all who collude or sponsor Boko Haram or refuse to come to the help of Christians for political or economical reasons know that heaven is watching and NOBODY will go free! The blood of the Christian martyrs is crying to haven for justice.

 

 Rev. 6:9-10

 

 10: and they cried with a loud voice, saying, “how long, o Lord, Holy and true, until you Judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

 

 NORTHERN Minority Commission is overdue. Do we need to take up arms before our plight comes before government?

 

 We hereby demand:

 1 Return of all schools and hospitals taken from the Christians and compensation paid for ruining them.

 2 Release of N5 billion for Christian schools as done to muslims and henceforth equal amount given us as given them yearly.

Signed:

 Evangelist Matthew Owojaiye

 Chairman

Full text of the statement:  Contemplating granting amnesty to the people who have wrought wanton destruction of lives and properties in this Nation is a call to other interest groups to rise up in arms against their fatherland, in order to be blessed when such an action should be treated as treason! Till date the killing continues!  9: When he open the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  We totally object to Paul Unongo and his friends speaking on behalf of the Christians challenging the authority of CAN President. The Christians in Nigeria know their leaders. Definitely their teams are not among our leaders.   3 The setting up of northern minority commission and a minister to be in charge.
