Pres. Jonathan declares state of emergency in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe

President Jonathan has declared an indefinite state of emergency in three Northern states, Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, citing insecurity. He made the announcement in a nationwide live broadcast this evening. With this declaration, the president has given the military the authority to take over the security of the states, though all political office holders in the states would still continue in office.

President Jonathan said the efforts at dialogue with militants will continue but will take extra ordinary measures to maintain peace. He immediately ordered troops to be deployed to the states to arrest and detain suspected terrorists, take over of suspicious buildings, and detain persons suspected to be in possession of arms. On terrorism, he said:
"We will hunt them down, fish them out and bring them to justice. No matter what it takes, we will win this war against terror"
This action is so long overdue. Just wondering why Nassarawa wasn't included.

Best decision Ever mr president though u should have damned the consequences and dropped the govs too

Declaring state of emergency is not the solution to the problem , rather they should invite the USA and British security support to fish out those involved in all this problems and put an end it.

Normally with a state of emergency, a military administrator will be appointed to overlook the state in the place of the Governor. Doesn't look that way here.

go to section 305 of the constitution. there is no place where the president is empowered to remove a democratically elected governor. in fact the governors of the affected states are in the know and can even tell the president to declare state of emergency

Dear compatriots,
1.    It has become necessary for me to address you on the recent spate of terrorist activities and protracted security challenges in some parts of the country, particularly in Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Kano, Plateau and most recently Bayelsa, Taraba, Benue and Nasarawa states.  These unfortunate events have led to needless loss of lives and property of many innocent Nigerians including members of our security forces.
 
2.   The recent killing of security operatives by a cult group in Nasarawa state is particularly condemnable. I have directed that no effort or expense be spared in identifying and bringing to justice all those who had a hand in the killing of the operatives.
 
3.   The activities of insurgents and terrorists have been reprehensible, causing fear among our citizens and a near-breakdown of law and order in parts of the country, especially the North. We have taken robust steps to unravel and address the root causes of these crises, but it would appear that there is a systematic effort by insurgents and terrorists to destabilize the Nigerian state and test our collective resolve.
 
4.  Since I returned to the country after cutting short my visit to South Africa and aborting a planned state visit to Namibia, I have received detailed briefings from our security agencies. These briefings indicate that what we are facing is not just militancy or criminality, but a rebellion and insurgency by terrorist groups which pose a very serious threat to national unity and territorial integrity. Already, some northern parts of Borno state have been taken over by groups whose allegiance is to different flags and ideologies.
 
5.   These terrorists and insurgents seem determined to establish control and authority over parts of our beloved nation and to progressively overwhelm the rest of the country. In many places, they have destroyed the Nigerian flag and other symbols of state authority and in their place, hoisted strange flags suggesting the exercise of alternative sovereignty.

ADDRESS BY PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, GCFR ON THE DECLARATION OF A STATE OF EMERGENCY IN BORNO, YOBE AND ADAMAWA STATES IN ORDER TO RESTORE PUBLIC ORDER, PUBLIC SAFETY AND SECURITY IN THE AFFECTED STATES OF THE FEDERATION
 
MAY 14, 2013
 
 
Dear compatriots,
 
12.  Following recent developments in the affected states, it has become necessary for Government to take extraordinary measures to restore normalcy. After wide consultations, and in exercise of the powers conferred on me by the provisions of Section 305, sub-section 1 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended, I hereby declare a State of Emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.
 
13.  Accordingly, the Chief of Defence Staff has been directed to immediately deploy more troops to these states for more effective internal security operations. The troops and other security agencies involved in these operations have orders to take all necessary action, within the ambit of their rules of engagement, to put an end to the impunity of insurgents and terrorists.
 
14.  This will include the authority to arrest and detain suspects, the taking of possession and control of any building or structure used for terrorist purposes, the lock-down of any area of terrorist operation, the conduct of searches, and the apprehension of persons in illegal possession of weapons.
 
 
15.  The details of this Proclamation will be transmitted to the National Assembly in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. But in the meantime, let me make it clear that within the purview of this Proclamation, the Governors and other political office holders in the affected states will continue to discharge their constitutional responsibilities.
 
16.   I urge the political leadership in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states to co-operate maximally with the Armed Forces and the Police to ensure that the exercise succeeds. We call on the citizenry to co-operate with our security agencies to ensure a return to normalcy within the shortest possible time.
 
17.   I am again approaching our neighbouring countries, through diplomatic channels, as done in the recent past, for their co-operation in apprehending any terrorist elements that may escape across the border.
 
 
18.  Nigerians are peace-loving people; these sad events perpetrated by those who do not wish our nation well have not changed the essential character of our people.
 
 
19.  I want to reassure you all that those who are directly or indirectly encouraging any form of rebellion against the Nigerian state, and their collaborators; those insurgents and terrorists who take delight in killing our security operatives, whoever they may be, wherever they may go, we will hunt them down, we will fish them out, and we will bring them to justice. No matter what it takes, we will win this war against terror.
 
20.  I am convinced that with your support and prayers, we shall overcome these challenges and together, we will restore every part of our country to the path of peace, growth and development.
 
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Pls ff me @tweetercabal

when u declare a state of emergency in a state, it means the Governor of such state can no longer guarantee the safety of lives and properties, since he is meant to be the chief security officer of that state... So, retaining his power in a state of emergency situation is ridiculous.... If ur gonna let d military function well, u have to give em absolute power... All d same this move is long overdue

Mr. President is protecting his political interest of actualizing his 2015 ambition to be re-elected at the expense of the Nigerian state.

State of emergency is a welcome development but the issue of the sitting Governors still at helm of affairs of the affected States is not appealing because it was because of their inabilities to see to the end of these insecurities in their various States that the State of Emergency was declared.Therefore,they are not supposed to be in the office but Sole Administrators should be appointed to avoid interference.Let this State of Emergency be extended to both Kano and Nasarawa States.

This president is an idiot, he didn't deploy troops to Nassarawa and kano but sent them to Adamawa. THIS IS NOT A SOLUTION.

What has these so called troops done for Maiduguri (Borno) and Yobe state. State of emergency will only cripple us (northerners) further, in Yobe/Borno right now young women are raped by these stupid military men, they go round entering pple houses doing "search" (stealing gold/jewelry), they shot young boys on sight saying they are boko haram members, there is no mtn , glo or other telephone network in these states, no way for people there to communicate.

I am a northerner who lives here in Lagos but my parents are based in Adamawa and I think this fool (GEJ) needs to go.

Imagine if this happened in Lagos.
