Aisha Yesufu, the co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls group, has heavily criticised President Muhammadu Buhari over his handling of increasing cases of abductions across the country.
She stated that the statements of assurance by Buhari on the efforts being made to rescue all those who have been abducted mean nothing to her
“We are used to a president whose words mean nothing. He says one thing, and another thing happens,” she said on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday.
Yesufu, who has been at the forefront of calls for the release of abductees said the President’s body language had been an enabler to the bandits.
“The body language of President Muhammadu Buhari enables the terrorists. They know that we have an ineffective President and Commander-In-Chief, we have an incompetent one a clueless one, who does not even bother about what is happening in the country.
“Yesterday we buried seven military officers, the best that we have, the nation was in mourning and the President was a few minutes away from where they were and the president didn’t even turn up, what does that signify? It Is high time we begin to make serious demands on the president”.
“This is such a sad moment especially with the fact that our government has not learnt anything in spite of almost seven years of advocacy that we’ve been calling on the government to do the right thing and to do the needful to ensure that the citizens are protected.
“Before the Chibok Girl’s abduction, there was actually the Guniyadi killings where 29 boys were slaughtered in their schools,” she said.
