Don’t Blame Buhari’s Govt For Not Bringing Back All Chibok Girls – Presidency…
Written by City Radio on April 27, 2023
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has asserted that Nigerians should not hold the President Muhammadu Buhari administration responsible for not rescuing all the kidnapped Chibok Girls.
It is like a self-accounting when you are exiting a position of public office to be humble enough to know that you have not done everything perfectly, Adesina said during an interview on Thursday.
“In 2015, we knew where Nigeria was, today we know where we are… Two hundred and sixty-seven were spirited away, about 57 escaped immediately, and over 100 have been returned by the administration.
“The ones that are left, I think 90-something, they are Nigerians, they have the right to be brought back,” he said about the girls who were kidnapped in 2014.
The special adviser stated that the government was proactive to tackle the kidnap at the time it occurred, adding that the incoming should take up the responsibility to recover the girls.
“And because the government is a continuum, the incoming government, if it recovers more of those girls, the country will gladly receive them,” he said during the show.
