Or will he just allow Boko Haram to continue slaughtering the remaining Christians there? Barack Hussein Obama was behind the campaign to remove its Christian president from office and deliver Nigeria into the hands of the jihadists, the same way he was behind the Arab Spring and the ouster of Egypt’s Mubarak, Libya’s Gaddafi, and efforts against Syria’s Assad.
Muhammadu Buhari has won Nigeria’s presidential election, the country’s Independent National Electoral Commission said. He defeated incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian, by about 2 million votes.
His presidential win is the result of his fourth attempt to lead the country since he was ousted 30 years ago. Buhari is a Sunni Muslim from Nigeria’s North, unlike Goodluck Jonathan who was from the Christian South.
Washington Times Western foreign policy observers pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria. Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria. In fact, he wants it everywhere.
“I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country.”
Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an Islamic state?
Boko Haram has pledged its allegiance and support to ISIS. The Northern Nigerian based Islamic terrorist group wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria and beyond. They are also actively terrorizing Chad, Niger and Cameroon with their goal of an Islamic state.
Mr. Buhari has also spoken sympathetically about members of the terrorist group Boko Haram, has cautioned against a rush to judgement on its members and has personally been selected by the terrorist group to lead its negotiations with the Government of Nigeria.
Mr. Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state will be a disaster for Africa. (But a triumph for Obama who urged the Christian government in Nigeria to “show restraint” when dealing with Islamic terrorists)
