Dr Oby Ezekwesili, Co-coordinator of the BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) campaign Movement, says the group has written President Muhammadu Buhari, seeking a meeting with him over the missing Chibok girls. Ezekwesili told newsmen on Thursday in Lagos that the movement was seeking to meet President Buhari over the fate of the missing girls and efforts to successfully bring them back.
She said that the group was not giving up on the girls. ”We have written to request for a meeting with the President as we did on several occasions with the previous government. ”The meeting shall enable us to express our deep anxieties at the failure of the Federal Government to rescue our 219 Chibok girls.
”We shall also use the meeting to understand and contribute to the strategy for countering terrorism, ensuring post-insurgency recovery and other related issues. ”We have formally written on behalf of the BringBackOurGirls movement in Abuja, nationwide, and all over the world to the President and sought to meet with him.
”We now await official confirmation and schedule for the meeting from the President; 276 Chibok schoolgirls abducted, 57 escaped, 219 still missing, zero rescued and we are not giving up on them, ”she said. The female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State on the night of April 15, 2014. The Boko Haram sect claimed responsibility for the kidnap of the girls.
