Chibok Girls: BBOG group accuses FG of complacency

The Federal Government has been accused by the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) campaign group for showing lack of commitment to finding the remaining 195 missing Chibok school girls.

This was said at a long week event organised to commemorate the third year since the abduction of the school girls, co-convener of the group.

According to the leader of the campaign Oby Ezekwesili, she said President Muhammadu Buhari must fulfill his promise and responsibility by ensuring the speedy return of the girls.

“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.

She ended by saying, “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.
