The Leader of the #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) movement, Oby Ezekwesilli , on Thursday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of not being emotionally connecting to the crying Chibok girls’ mothers that marched to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.
Ezekwesilli said from the feedback they got, it was clear the President feels he has already given his best in the efforts to rescue the girls. The former minister of Education spoke after members of the group converged at the Unity fountain after their interaction with the President.
She also said lack of response from government has made the girls’ parents to feel like they are being ignored simply because they are poor and reside in the village.
Ezekwesilli also accused the Minister of Women affairs, Aisha Alhassan, of attempting to break the ranks of the movement through her comments.
She said, “You heard all the parents said at the meeting, is it because we are poor? Is it because we live in the forest? Is it because we live in the village? But that has no meaning in any society, there is no basis for discrimination on the basics of social status, political view, religious belief and other primordial device against any citizen.
“In the feedback from the President you can see clearly that the President feels that he has given his best in the efforts to rescue our Chibok girls, our President however was not able to emotionally connect to those crying mothers. That is an important attribute but we will continue to demand and we will take up the responsibility that the NSA has taken and we will make sure that we don’t stop until our girls are back and alive.”
