The Leader of the
â€ª#â€ŽBringBackOurGirlsâ€¬ (â€ª#â€ŽBBOGâ€¬) movement, Oby Ezekwesilli ,
on Thursday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of not being
emotionally connecting to the crying Chibok
girlsâ€™ 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.Â 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 girlsâ€™ 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, â€œYou 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.
â€œIn 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 donâ€™t stop until our girls are back and alive.â€
