Group set to march to Aso Villa to demand release of Chibok girls
Speaking at the group’s daily sit-out in Abuja on Wednesday, leader of the group and former Minister of Education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, said there was need to remind the President of the promise he made in the Villa during their meeting with him and also during his inauguration.
Ezekwesili said, “The need for the march is born out of the recent remarks made by President Buhari during his media chat that the Nigerian government has no credible intelligence about the Chibok girls.
“After our meeting with the President, we had promised not to disperse but continue to meet until the girls are back.
“But the feedback we got from the government, did not encourage us. It kept saying that there was no credible intelligence about the girls.
“On January 14, 2016,” Ezekwesili said, “we will walk all the way to the Villa and we will remind the president of the promise he made in the Villa during our meeting with him and also during his inauguration and every time he spoke about our Chibok girls.
“We will remind him that if there is anybody that will be uncomfortable that the girls are not yet rescued, it should be him,” the group’s leader added.
