Chibok parents need comfort, not sorrow; Presidency tells Ezekwesili, others

By Abiodun Alade

The presidency has urged Nigerians to desist from spreading false stories capable of compounding the woes of the parents of the abducted Chibok girls.

The presidency made this statement following accusations by leaders of the BringBackOurGirls campaign that the parents of the abducted girls were given N100m during their visit to the Aso Villa.

The Special Assistant to President Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri via his twitter handle @renoomokri, noted that, “Chibok parents are hurting. We must all comfort them as we await rescue of our daughters. Let’s not compound their sorrow with false stories”.


It will be recalled that former Minister of Education and a leader of the BringBackOurGirls campaign, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili condemned the presidency for allegedly doling out money to the parents of the abducted Chibok girls during a visit to the Aso Villa.
