Chibok Girls - One Of The Reasons Jonathan Lost - Okupe

Doyin Okupe, the senior special aide to the President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, has listed the probable reasons more than 200 Chibok schoolgirls were kidnapped by the terror Boko Haram sect in April, 2014.

Okupe via his personal Facebook and Twitter pages supposes that schoolgirls were abducted to show the government of Jonathan as incapable.

The presidential aide also alleged that the#BringBackOurGirls group was founded in order to “sustain and internationalise” the agenda of incompetency against the outgoing government.

He said: “One of the reasons the Chibok girls were kidnapped was to present Jonathan’s administration as incompetent and hold it to ransom against 2015 elections.

“One of the reasons the BBOG was formed was to sustain and internationalise the embarrassment.

“One of the reasons President Jonathan lost the election was a national and international conspiracy predicated on this carefully choreographed and assiduously sustained perception.

“One of the issues that will be in the handover notes will be the missing girls.

“What is reasonable and expedient for well meaning men and women of good conscience is to dialogue with the incoming administration on what best new approach to employ to find and rescue the Chibok girls.

“Not much can be achieved, except mischief, by continuing to flog this administration on this matter. I REST MY CASE.

The Сhibok schoolgirls were kidnapped on April 14, 2014, and the failure of the federal government to rescue them has been one of the talking points of the Jonathan administration.

Since the general elections were postponed by the electoral commission on February 7, the military has achieved success in the war against the Boko Haram insurgency. But despite all the efforts, the girls are still missing.
