Jonathan eats humble pie, woos Obasanjo to help tackle Boko Haram insurgency

President Goodluck Jonathan has reached out to former President Olusegun Obasanjo for ideas as the deadly Boko Haram insurgency ravaging the North-East region of the country spirals out of control, with the terrorists capturing Gwoza, a Nigerian territory, and declaring it an Islamic caliphate.
The development suggests a rethink by the Jonathan administration which had all along disregarded Mr. Obasanjo's proposal to commence talks with the extremist Boko Haram sect through an informal channel.
Both leaders, PREMIUM TIMES learnt, met in Abuja Wednesday at the instance of President Jonathan and had extensive discussion on how to tackle the insurgency.
In fact, ostensibly desperate for solution to the problem, Mr. Jonathan offered to fly to Abeokuta to meet with Mr. Obasanjo.
The former President however offered to travel to Abuja to meet Mr. Jonathan out of respect for the office of the president.
Mr. Obasanjo confirmed the meeting on arrival back to his base in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
"Yes, I can confirm that I met with Mr. President on his invitation," he told journalists. "In fact, he had wanted to come down to Abeokuta, but as a sign of respect to the Office of the President, I had to go. We had discussion
on the country's security issues and that is all."
The former President appreciated the invitation of Mr. Jonathan and assured the administration that, in the interest of peace and progress of the country, he would continue to make himself available whenever solutions are being sought for knotty national issues.
Details of the discussions between the two leaders are unclear.
It is also not clear whether Mr. Jonathan has now given the former President the nod to explore talks with the Boko Haram contacts he has identified.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, as well as the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Public Affairs, did not answer or return calls.
Mr. Obasanjo has for years advocated the use of force alongside peaceful negotiation as a panacea for tackling the insurgency in the North.
In May, Mr. Obasanjo commenced efforts to reach out to the Boko Haram sect, in a series of attempts at negotiating with the sect to free the over 250 school girls it abducted in April from their dormitories in Chibok, Borno State.
At the time, the former leader contacted a go-between, who assisted him in his unsuccessful attempt at mediating with the Boko Haram group in 2011.
The go-between, a lawyer, was led by a prominent civil rights activist, Shehu Sani, to meet with Mr. Obasanjo in his Ota farm in an "exploratory" effort.
After meeting with the go-between, Mr. Obasanjo contacted President Jonathan for clearance to continue with the talks. He was ignored.
"Without a response from the authorities, no one can proceed," Mr. Obasanjo told PREMIUM TIMES at the time. "If they agree to negotiate then we can begin to talk with them (Boko Haram). Nobody can do anything alone. You cannot do it alone, it is not a one man mission, it's not even a two man mission. It's a collective mission. It can even be an international mission."
Mr. Obasanjo's 2011 attempt at negotiations with the deadly sect ended on a bloody note with the murder of Babakura Fugu, the man who received him and made effort to establish a link between Boko Haram and the former president.
The effort was reportedly not at the instance of the federal government, officials said at the time.
Mr. Fugu, a brother-in-law of the slain leader of Boko Haram, Mohammed Yusuf, was shot to death shortly after Mr. Obasanjo's departure from Maiduguri, Borno State, to seek peace talks with the group.
The attack ended one of the best known efforts at reaching out to the deadly sect, which is responsible for thousands of deaths.
Since 2011, the group has killed thousands more, and recently drew the outrage of the international community with the abduction of hundreds of girls from their dormitory in Chibok, Borno State.

7 Signs You Are in a Bad Relationship

Here are signs that you are in a bad relationship.

You are not happy

This is the number one sign that you are in a very unhealthy relationship. When asked, most couples say the best thing about being in a relationship is the happiness being with the one they love brings.

If you are not happy with your partner or he or she seems not to be happy with you, your relationship isn't healthy for one party and until things change, there will be one unwilling and unhappy partner in that relationship.

There is no trust

A lot of couples check through their other half's phone but the question is, for what? Are you sniffing through? Are you checking to see who they last called/spoke to? Are you checking to know who they regularly send messages to?

If your reason for checking your spouse's phone is to keep tabs on their lives then trust me, everything is wrong with your relationship.

Trust comes with love and the moment you start pulling an FBI on your partner's phone, it means you do not trust them and your love isn't genuine.

Y'all cheat

I am not a member of that school of thought that says open relationships/marriages are great so for me, when you are with someone that is not your partner then you are cheating.

If both of you cheat on each other and you are still together because you believe nothing can tear you apart, then be ready for a very unhappy journey which begins now.

You don't respect each other

By respect, I don't mean kneeling to give him his coffee/meal, I am talking about respecting his/her wishes/decisions/opinions. I am talking doing the things he/she wants and likes and not acting like they do not exist.

A relationship that lacks respect lacks what it needs to last long. Y'all are closer to rock bottom than you think.

Your relationship is emotionally and physically abusive

For a lot of people, abuse starts and ends with the physical violence. When you are being emotionally abused, then you are as unsafe as the person who is being physically abused. And this is not just for the women, because there are a lot of men out there who are stuck with women who emotionally abuse them.

This is unhealthy for you and it means your relationship, rather than helping you grow is killing you.

You cannot recall the last time you laughed

You certainly remember the times when he/she made you mad, made you sad and made you worthless but the good times? That must be ages ago.

Your quarrels, fights and misunderstandings have overshadowed your happy moments and these days if he is not the one mad at you for something, you are the one mad at him for something.

Maybe its time to fix it or kill it, you have to decide now.

You never communicate

You just realize that these days, you both never say anything to each other anymore. Conversations are empty, you don't desperately need each other's company and you don't look forward to discussing anything with each other.

Maybe this needs to rest?

There are a million and one signs that show you are in a relationship that is unsafe for your health and if you listened carefully, you would see the signs screaming at you. Take these signs seriously and take the needed steps towards whatever decision you have decided to take.

PHOTO: New Map of Nigeria, as proposed by National Conference

The National Conference in its final report recommended the creation of 19 additional states to bring the number of states in the country to 54.
The recommendation was made by the Committee on Political Restructuring and Forms of Government jointly headed by Ike Nwachukwu and Mohammed Kumalia.
Initially, some Northern delegates kicked against moves to create additional states apart from the one proposed for the South-East which was overwhelmingly supported. But after series of consultations by the leadership of delegations, the Conference unanimously adopted the recommendation for the creation of additional 19 new states.
PREMIUM TIMES obtained a copy of the proposed map of a new Nigeria after the states proposed by the conference are created.
