Ezekwesili challenges Buhari on Chibok girls’ rescue, requests meeting

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari on his promise to rescue the abducted Chibok girls.

Ezekwesili, speaking via Twitter on Friday, June 26, 2015, urged Buhari to present his progress report on plans to bring the missing girls home.

“DAY438 of OUR #ChibokGirls. Mr. President @MBuhari the whole world awaits THE PROGRESS REPORT on YOUR PROMISE to RESCUE OUR 219 Girls. #BBOG!” she wrote.

Meanwhile the BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) Campaign Movement, which Ezekwesili coordinates, has written to Buhari to request a meeting with him over the fate of the missing girls.

Ezekwesili disclosed this on Thursday, June 25, while speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

“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,” she said.

“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 added

The missing girls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014.
