Saudi Arabia and Qatar are responsible for funding Boko Haram – Ex-president


The terrorist group has grown to constitute a threat to the Western African Region as well as the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), which is an affiliation of the Islamic State in the Middle-East, is a potent threat to the security of the region.

Soglo, who spoke at the constitutional term limits summit in Niamey, Niger Republic, said Africans must stand united to solve their own problems. He said Africa, and West Africa in particular, must work at solving it is own problems and that it should be able to identify its real friends.

“Boko Haram is funded by our friends from Saudi Arabia and our friends from Qatar. Are we friends or not? Let’s tell ourselves the truth. We have to stand together. I’m optimistic we are going to win if we stand together” he said.

The ongoing summit is organized by the National Democratic Institute (NDI). Former President Goodluck Jonathan is one of the speakers.

  1. NO THESE PEOPLE FROM SAUDI ARABIA AND QATAR CANNOT BE OUR FRIENDS.

    THEY ARE OUR ENEMY AND UNIVERSAL ENEMY TOO.

    BUT THE GREATEST ENEMY ARE MEMBERS OF OUR HOUSEHOLD-THESE ARE NIGERIANS IN NIGERIA WITH SOFT SPOTS FOR BOKO HARAM. THEY NOT ONLY KNOW THEM THEY SUPPORT THEM ALSO WITH

    – INFORMATION
    -FOOD
    LOGISTICS.

    THEY ARE NIGERIANS.THEY ARE NOT SAUDIS.THEY ARE NOT QATARIS.

    THEY FIRST BEND OVER BACKWARDS, ACCEPTED TO DESTROY THEIR NATION BECAUSE OF RELIGIOUS MADNESS.THERE RELIGIOUS INCLINATION AND BROTHERHOOD IS STRONGER THAN THEIR NATIONHOOD.

    RELIGION FIRST,NATIONHOOD SECOND.OTHERWISE, HOW CAN YOU KILL YOUR BROTHER BECAUSE A MAN IN A FAR AWAY COUNTRY OF QATAR AND SAUDI ARABIA SAYS SO.

    BUT THAT IS THE LOT OF THE AFRICANS.PAWNS IN THE HANDS OF OTHERS.NO MATTER HOW HIGH AN AFRICAN HAS RISEN,THERE IS NO REAL VALUE BEHIND HIM.HE BENDS AT THE SLIGHTEST COERCION.

  2. SAUDI ARABIA and QATAR have no interests on their own to fund Boko Haram. If the fund is coming from them it is on behalf of thw American CIA. i believe the USAID, a soft cover for the CIA is actually funding Boko Haram with the complicit of the Chadian president Idris.Saudis and Qataris might just be third parties.The CIA never work directly.The biggest problem in solving the Boko Haram issue is our corrupted elites , coupled with the naivety of African states toward America. Americans are good salesmen with fine words. While their gov’t is seducing and corrupting our elites, their secret agencies are carrying out their nefarious agenda undercover.Nigeria is the only wholely black nation on earth with the potential to compete with the best in the world, and shatter the negative stereotype the West had painstakingly created over the ages. They do not want Nigeria to be a positive reference point, especially for Black Americans and the rest of the Black race. The CIA has been putting a lot of resources to break up Nigeria and make sure it never realizes its potential and independent. Boko Haram is actually a hybrid war against Nigeria.
    In my humble opinion, here is how to solve the Boko Haram conundrum. It will not take any spiritual intervention, just a political will and a lot of intelligence and commonsense. I believe Boko Haram commanders are trained in the USA and French bases in chad, with the connivance of the Chadian leader, who was supposed to stand trial at the ICC.He agreed to play ball with them for his case to be dropped. CLOSE all land and lake border ( airtight) with Chad with elite garrisons with top patriotic and incorruptible commanders. Remove all foreign forces from Nigerian military bases. These foreign forces and their drones flying over West Africa, provide logistics and Nigerian troop movements to Boko Haram.This is how they are able to ambush Nigerian troops at will. Nigeria should be assertive in securing their security, like every other reasonable country. Never listen to any so -called “international” institution , like amnesty international, etc,, controlled by the West. Nigeria should know their true friends, not who call themselves our “friends”. Nigeria should ask the USAID to leave the North, and look into their finance book and how they spend their money in Nigeria.If they refuse to provide their financial book, kick them out of Nigeria. Impliment all these and Boko Haram will die a natural death within six months!!!!.
