PRESIDENT JONATHAN, IT IS TIME TO INVITE THE AMERICANS!
The likely disavowal in some quarters that this commentator sounds like a sell-out taken under advisement, Icheoku says to President Good(BAD)luck of Nigeria to hurry up and invite the Americans now to rid Nigeria of Boko Haram infestation or forever regret his inaction. It is obvious to any impartial observer that the security agencies in Nigeria have failed to live up to the billing of their offices and have also shameless refused and/or failed to resign as should be expected. Therefore, any similarly challenged president, privileged of some survival skills, would urgently look elsewhere to provide security for both himself and the people under siege; as a vote of no confidence on the local security apparatchik. President Jonathan therefore should immediately proceed to Washington to plead his case for help and assistance from the top-shelf security operatives the world has ever known - the Americans. Icheoku admonishes that no president or head of a family would stand by, hands akimbo, and watch helplessly as some maniacal Muslim terrorists incessantly kill, maim and destroy the citizenry without throwing his best punch forward and forcefully to help stop such wanton destruction of lives and properties. The level of the devastation, alarmingly, makes the president's signature speeches sound too hollow; now is the time to bring out the big sledge hammer and with it give those bastards hell. So President Jonathan, when would your red-line on the sand be deemed to have been crossed or are over one thousand Nigerian lives so far wasted not enough to say enough, never again?
