You are a bare-faced liar, President Jonathan – MEND

In response to President Goodluck Jonathan’s allegation that Henry Okah was paid to assassinate him during his speech at his campaign rally penultimate Thursday, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has replied, describing the president’s allegation as outrageous and ridiculous.

MEND expressed its displeasure towards the allegation in a statement signed by its spokesman Jomo Gbomo. Gbomo also said by such frivolous accusation, Jonathan justifies MEND’s endorsement of General Muhammadu Buhari and solidifies his status as a clueless, inept and bare face lair.

“We challenge Mr President, Goodluck Jonathan to come out and reveal to the nation, the names of the “persons” he claims paid Mr Henry Okah to assassinate him,” Gbomo said in the statement.

“Goodluck Jonathan should also explain why these “persons”, as he obviously knows who they are, were not arrested, tried and convicted.

“Nigerians may recall that prior to the bomb blast of 1st October, 2010; the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) issued a warning of an impending attack in Eagle Square, Abuja, where we also advised the public to stay clear of any parked vehicles to avert any casualties.”

He pointed out that the warnings were ignored by the Nigerian Security agencies, hence the unfortunate and regrettable casualties.

He maintained that if Jonathan was a target of an assassination attempt, MEND would not have issued a prior warning?

“Where in this world would an assassin warn their target in advance of an attempt on their life? This false allegation by Goodluck Jonathan, further confirms our earlier assertion of how he takes Nigerians for stupid as he seem to have forgotten how he openly came out to absolve MEND of any involvement in the attack,” Gbomo said in the statement.

“Rather than address his administrations failures, he chose to descend so low by using a very cheap bare faced lie to get sympathy. Is this the kind of President the country wants to be stuck with for another four years of misery?”

He restated MEND’s stand against Jonathan, urging Nigerians to vote him out.

“At this point, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) urges the nation to use the power of their vote in securing this great country back from the claws of Goodluck Jonathan’s corrupt and inept government and the Peoples Democratic Party.
