Buhari Must Stick To His Campaign Promises; He Must Rescue The Chibok Girls – Lawyers


An advocacy group, Lawyers for Change, has charged the President-elect, Muhamadu Buhari, to focus on delivering on his campaign promises, especially with regards to rescuing the abducted Chibok girls.

National coordinator of the group, Mr. Adesina Ogunlana charged Buhari to live up to his earlier promise of finding the girls who were abducted by the Islamist sect Boko Haram, stressing that his comments after the general elections, which indicated that his government could not cannot guarantee the recovery of the girls, contradicted his promise before the elections.

“What he said is at variance with his promise. Chibok girls must be rescued, they must be found,” Ogunlana said.

He also advised that a project tagged, ‘real retooling of the national economy’ be commenced to adequately address and curb corruption.

“Misappropriation of government fund must end. To serve as a deterrent to others, wealth corruptly acquired should be relinquished. Our country must change and be changed.

“Life in Nigeria must not remain the same. What the people elected in is change, and change they will get, change not just transition,” he said.
