Members of the group registered their anger in a statement signed by Oby Ezekwesili and Aisha Yesufu in Abuja.
While expressing annoyance over the fact that the Buhari government had failed to rescue the remaining 113 girls still in captivity, the group also took the government to task over the fact that 6 months after their abduction, students of the Lagos Model College Epe had still not been rescued.
The statement read: “Today (Thursday) is Day 1200 since the abduction of our 276 #ChibokGirls in their school.
“A total of 106 are back but 113 remain with terrorists for 1200 today.
“It is also Day 785 that our 113 #ChibokGirls are missing under President Muhammadu Buhari’s watch.
“As part of our duty as a citizens’ movement to ensure that the federal government never forgets, never becomes complacent, never relapses into inertia as they are always wont to, our movement shall be back on the street on Tuesday August 1 on a march to the State House, from 9 am.”
