A Civil Society Organization, Africa Arise for Change Network, has asked ex-president Goodluck Jonathan and Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to apologize to Nigerians for not believing that over 200 girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Borno State, in 2014.
Jonathan and Fayose, both of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had said the girls’ abduction was a hoax designed by the then opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to destabilize the government.
The group blamed the long captivity of the girls on the failure of Jonathan’s government to take immediate action after the girls were abducted from their school.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Friday, the National Coordinator of the group, Nkechi Odoma, commended the present administration and the military for the sustained onslaught on the insurgents and the rescue of two Chibok girls.
She expressed confidence that the military would rescue more Chibok girls from their Boko Haram captors in the days ahead.
