Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe has come out to say that the politicization of the kidnap of the over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State and the formation of the #BringBackOurGirls Group was aimed at embarrassing President Goodluck Jonathan.
Speaking via his official page, Okupe said the issue of the kidnapped girls was choreographed so as to present President Jonathan as incompetent and use it against him during the 2015 elections.
He wrote: “One of the reasons the Chibok girls were kidnapped was to present Jonathan’s administration as incompetent and hold it to ransom against 2015 elections.
“One of the reasons the BBOG was formed was to sustain and internationalise the embarrassment.
“One of the reasons President Jonathan lost the election was a national and international conspiracy predicated on this carefully choreographed and assiduously sustained perception.
“One of the issues that will be in the hand over notes will be the missing girls.
“What is reasonable and expedient for well meaning men and women of good conscience is to dialogue with the incoming administration on what best new approach to employ to find and rescue the chibok girls.
“Not much can be achieved, except mischief, by continuing to flog this administration on this matter. I REST MY CASE.”
