Nigerian govt can end banditry activities in Zamfara – Public commentator

El-Rufai Lied That Oritsejafor And I Are Boko Haram Sponsors – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has stated that the All Progressive Congress in 2014 embarked on propaganda to mislead Nigerians, including claims that his government supported the Boko Haram terrorists to reduce the number of northern voters.
