  Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan challenged violent Islamist sect Boko Haram on Thursday to identify themselves and state clearly their demands as a basis for talks, while acknowledging that military confrontation alone will not end their insurgency.

In an interview with Reuters at the presidential villa in the capital Abuja, Jonathan also said there was no doubt that Boko Haram had links with other jihadist groups outside Nigeria.



"If they clearly identify themselves now and say this is the reason why we are resisting, this is the reason why we are confronting government or this is the reason why we destroy some innocent people and their properties ... then there will be a basis for dialogue," Jonathan said.

"We will dialogue, let us know your problems and we will solve your problem but if they don't identify themselves, who will you dialogue with?"

But he cautioned that the crisis would be much harder to resolve than the one in the oil rich southeastern Niger Delta, which was largely defused in 2009 under an amnesty he helped broker.

I dont think these pple hv any specified problem,they only derive joy in shading innocent bloods..I wish they will come out with a reasonable request, that would attract ''a dialogue''..Instead of sending those nonsense messages with baseless n dumb informations..

dialogue?Huh??this people have proved they dont have a tangible reason for what they do. one minute they tell us its because their leader was killed, the other minute they say it is d command of allah to kill infidels. countries that had experience with terrorists already warn Nigeria never to dialogue with terrorists, it only gives them more power to ask for the unthinkable. Jonathan is toooooo weak, way too weak. why wld anyone keep a terrorist with police in the first place? such pple are kept with counter-terrorist units or highly organised forces. y wld the president appoint an IG that cannot even run or carry gun(do y'all see his pot belly?) dialogue will only empower boko haram

MR PRESIDENT, THERE IS NO REASON TO DIALOGUE WITH MURDEROUS ILLITERATES WHO GO ABOUT KILLING UNARMED INNOCENT PEOPLE, CAN YOU TALK SENSE INTO A SLEEPY MAN? THESE PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH. IF YOU DIALOGUE WITH THEM TOMORROW ANOTHER GROUP OF BANDITS WOULD SPRING UP AGAIN AND HOLD THE NATION TO RANSOME. ISLAM IS A THREAT TO WORLD PEACE. FOOLS!!!

Negotiating with terrorists is very bad,!!! And will only embolden and legitimize them!!!
 Jonathan is setting a bad precedent,his desperation to secure his rule,should not blind him to this basic principles,
But,if it will help to restore security so be it.
