The parents of Leah Sharibu have accused President Muhammadu Buhari of not caring for their kidnapped daughter.
Speaking on behalf of the parents, spokesperson for and Executive Director of the Leah Foundation, Dr Gloria Puldu, said the Buhari government has failed to keep their promise made to them.
In an interview with The PUNCH, Puldu said the President’s body language towards Leah’s freedom has been frustrating and disappointing.
She said that the Sharibus are tired of speaking, crying and pleading with a government that had remained deaf to every legitimate demand to free their daughter.
Puldu stressed that the President has forgotten about Leah, stating the family will be marking the fourth-year anniversary of the abduction of their daughter by Boko Haram terrorists in February.
She said, “Thank you very much for your concern. Let me tell you how the family has agreed to spend this Christmas. They said they were tired of speaking, crying and pleading with the government of Buhari, which is deaf to every call.
“So, it is agreed that they should remain silent and just call for continued prayers. They said they were tired of routine calls, which hurt so much that they had to just call on anyone who wished to stand with them to do so only in prayers.
“We wish to respect the family’s wishes. We have only sent out Christmas greetings by calling for prayers.”
Naija News reports that Leah Sharibu was one of the 110 female students of the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, who were abducted on February 19, 2018, by Boko Haram terrorists.
While others were released by the terrorists following negotiations, Leah is still being held captive because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
