CHIBOK: 'The Federal Govt Could Have Acted Quickly' - Obasanjo

Former Nigeria’s President, Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday, condemned the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State.

Speaking shortly after the signing of MoU between Jigawa State government and Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation, at Government House, Dutse, Chief Obasanjo said the delay by the government over the matter led to their being moved away from the school, adding that if urgent rescue action was taken, the girls could have been saved from their current hardship.

“The Federal Government could have acted quickly when the news broke so as to save the innocent girls, but nothing was done,” he lamented.

Obasanjo described the abduction of the girls as unfortunate and pathetic, considering the future of their lives.

“Their future is significant as such everything possible must be done to rescue them,” he said.

He, however said that, “whatever might have been the grievances of the group of people behind the adoption of these girls, whatever might have been their anger or objectives, it was uncalled for, considering the importance of these girls.”
