The community spokesman said he was shocked that the president did not even say a word about the Chibok girls abducted on April 14, 2014 , adding that he doubted the Federal Government was doing anything to rescue the schoolgirls.
“As a director of information of the Chibok Community nationwide, I am short of answers when people call to ask me why did the president keep mute about the Chibok girls on occasions and in places [where] he needs to touch on them.”
President Jonathan made a surprise stop in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State on January 15, 2015, Thursday, which has been the epicenter of deadly attacks, abductions and destructions of property by Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram. After talking to soldiers, the leader of Nigeria visited a camp for people displaced by insurgent attacks, assuring the victims that they would soon return to their original communities.
