Boko Haram remains undefeated until Chibok girls are rescued – Oby Ezekwesili

Must read

The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group has faulted the Federal Government on its alleged deepening silence and complacency concerning the search for the remaining 195 Chibok Schoolgirls in Boko Haram enclaves.

Co-convener of the group, Oby Ezekwesili, while speaking at the third year remembrance of the abduction of the schoolgirls urged President Muhammadu Buhari to fulfill his promise by bringing back the remaining girls held by Boko Haram Islamic extremists.

She said the government cannot claim of defeating Boko Haram until the remaining Chibok girls are brought back home, adding that agitations for their release will not end no matter the silence treatment from government.

“There shouldn’t be any sense of complacency, on the part of any leader of a country, when you’ve got 195 of your children with terrorists.

“This government seems to want this whole agitation of Chibok girls to end so that everybody will just move away, No.

“There was a promise made that except the government brings back Chibok girls, it cannot say that it has defeated Boko Haram.

”It was the statement of our president in his inauguration address; it was the statement he revealed to us during our July visit in 2015 to him.

“He cannot run away from it, he cannot back away from it.

“The parents on the other hand, who lamented over the situation, however expressed hope that their children would return.”
