President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has been called out again for the rescue of the 112 Chibok and Dapchi girls captured by Boko Haram.
The call was made on Friday, December 18 by the former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, Naija News understands.
Ezekwesili in a thread on her verified Twitter account following the release of hundreds of students of Government Science secondary school, Kankara, Katsina State, wondered why the dreaded group have not released the 112 Chibok girls and Dapchi girls.
The former presidential candidate lamented over the continues ‘imprisonment’ of Leah Sharibu, the Chibok girl who was trapped in the Boko Haram den because of her Christian faith.
Reacting to the rescue of the Kankara schoolboys on Friday, Ezekwesili said Nigeria is not being governed and shows characteristics of a failed state.
Her tweets read: “We rejoice in the freedom of our innocent Kankara Boys! But, Nigeria is not being governed at all now. All the characteristics of a Failing State are evident in this country and must be averted by citizens.
“Where are the remaining 112 Chibok Girls and the only remaining Dapchi girls, Leah Sharibu who is a Prisoner of Faith?
“Buhari should we assume the 344 (a new number from 333) Kankara Boys went on an excursion to terrorists who have out of magnanimity released them to you?
“When will 112 Chibok Girls and Dapchi Girl, Leah Sharibu also be released by terrorists to an irredeemably uncaring Buhari who has for 3 years and two years respectively not considered it worthy of a Leader to engage their parents? When will our Girls come home?”
