The #BringBackOurGirls group has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of conducting its affairs like the past administration of Goodluck Jonathan.
It noted that this was apparent in its handling of the issue of the abducted Chibok girls, insecurity across the country, welfare of the internally displaced persons, military welfare, corruption and poor governance.
According to The Punch, the group said this on Sunday during its commemoration of the 1000th day of the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls in Borno State by the Boko Haram sect.
The coalition members, who marched towards the Presidential Villa, Abuja, were blocked by riot policemen and women who cordoned off the entrance road to the seat of government.
But the Co-coordinator of the group, Oby Ezekwesili, informed the leader of the police team who was in mufti that the BBOG members were not interested in marching to the villa.
The group thereafter addressed newsmen and pasted the posters of the Chibok schoolgirls on the bridge.
A co-coordinator of the coalition, Aisha Yesufu, who read a statement on behalf of the movement, noted that the Federal Government had not given any update on the status of the remaining girls in the Boko Haram custody after 21 of them were released last year.
“As with the Jonathan administration, the Buhari administration’s response to issues about the Chibok girls is representative of its handling of other issues — insecurity, welfare of internally displaced persons, military welfare, corruption and poor governance,” the BBOG stated.
The group said it had resolved to carry out a series of activities for a period of one week to compel the government “to accelerate the decision and actions necessary to bring back the rest of our Chibok Girls to an anxiously waiting nation.”
The actions, it added, would also serve to remind Nigerians and the international community of the continued state of insecurity in the country.
“Painfully, #Day1000 of their tragic abduction is here and there has been no status report provided by the Federal Government. As such, we are constrained to resume our various activities to mark this tragic milestone, expecting Mr. President to regard this #Day1000 milestone as an overdue time to bring this horrific saga to an end,” Yesufu stated.
