During Jonathan’s Govt, the Northern Governors traveled to the US, convinced Obama’s government not to sell weapons to the Jonathan’s administration.
Obama agreed with Northern governors plans and placed an embargo on weapon procurement by the Jonathan’s administration.
To ensure that that Nigeria defeats Boko Haram, Jonathan contacted a licensed private arms dealer who traveled to South Africa to buy weapons for our military. The Boko Haram members in the Presidency leaked out this secret arms deal to thier Northern leaders and Governors.
The Northern governors immediately contacted President Jacob Zuma who seized the money, $9.34million which they tagged “Money laundry”. They got the information that Jonathan has contacted another South African arms dealer, and reported to Zuma and he seized the $5.7m to frustrate his anti-terrorism fight.
Northern leaders in order to frustrate Jonathan also threatened to drag the former Chief of Army staff, General Azubuike Ihejirika before the ICC for brutally dealing with their ‘Boko Haram’.
To the US has lifted the sanction and the $1b given to Buhari developed wings as the soldiers are complaining of lack of arms to fight Boko Haram and those criticising Jonathan then had gone silent. – @Political X-Ray
