The abduction of 276 Chibok girls by Boko Haram terrorists

On April 14, 276 schoolgirls were kidnapped from the Government Girls Secondary School in the town of Chibok in Borno State.

The abduction of the girl led to an outrage among local and international communities calling for the rescue of the school children through the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.

While over a hundred of the school girls have either escaped or been rescued, many are still left in Boko Haram captivity.

However, addressing the issues surrounding the kidnap and efforts to release the girls, the PDP accused Shettima and the APC-led administration of working against Jonathan.

The allegations by the PDP followed the release of some pictures of Jonathan, Bola Tinubu and Shettima who met at the 70th birthday event of Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah.

Ologunagba in his statement said it is shameful that Tinubu and Shettima now distance themselves from the “abysmal failure” of President Muhammadu Buhari.

His words:

“In a desperate design to whitewash their battered public image, identifying with the obvious successes of the PDP and in an attempt to posture as statesmen, the APC presidential candidate, his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, and other APC leaders shamelessly orchestrated a photo opportunity with the distinguished and successful former President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“This is a patriotic Nigerian leader whose PDP-led purposeful and successful government the APC leaders viciously harassed, constantly insulted, labelled, sabotaged and discredited for their selfish power-grabbing enterprise."

He also stated that Nigerians can equally recall how Shettima as governor of Borno state failed to act on a security report and directive to close schools in remote parts of the state and relocate students to the more secure capital of Maiduguri to write their GCE examinations.
