President Muhammadu Buhari’s has been blasted by a mother of the abducted Chibok girls, Esther Yakubu, who said Buhari’s administration is “more clueless than Jonathan’s government.”
Crying out in pain, Esther made the remark after sighting her daughter in the new video released by the Boko Haram insurgents demanding swap of their detained members with the Chibok girls.
“The Chibok girls must be rescued, they must have their lives, the future that Boko Haram tries to truncate. more clueless than Jonathan’s.” Esther said.
Boko Haram released the video yesterday as it sent another message to the Nigerian Army. The girls who were abducted in 2014 from their dormitory in Chibok, Borno State and has been held as prisoners for two years now.
Punch revealed that Esther said though she wanted the best educationally for her daughter, but regretted putting her in boarding school.
“I wanted her to have the best of education, I planned to sponsor her education to whatever level she wanted, but she could not sit for her final examinations because she was abducted.
“Boko Haram in the video asked the government to release their members so that they could release our girls. If the government knows that it cannot handle the insurgency, it should invite other countries. It is not a crime to seek assistance in a war. It is a shame for them to allow our daughters to languish in captivity for over two years.
“I don’t regret sending her to school, but I regret putting her in boarding school. If she was a day student, she would be home with me that night. The abduction affected her because she was in boarding school,” she said
