A mother to one of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram, Esther Yakubu, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari over comments he made about the abducted schoolgirls at a United Nations meeting in New York.
Recall that President Buhari had issued a statement during the meeting where he said he was not going to address the issue of the abducted school girls any further.
But Mrs. Yakubu , who deemed the comment as one from a weak leader, described President Buhari as a blunder in Aso Rock.
“It is unfair, he did not deserve to be my president because if he be one, people used to risk life of thousands to rescue one life but 218 are still missing and he has the guts, he had that spirit in him to say that he does not want to talk about it,” said Yakubu during the 900 days commemoration of the 218 abducted girls.
“The president said he doesn’t want to speak about it, we too we don’t want him to say anything but all what we want him to release the fighters so that our girls can come home.”
“We don’t even want him to discuss anything about our girls but to release the fighters (Boko Haram terrorists held by the federal government) so that our girls can come home.
“That is what we want from him and that is what we want him to do for us.
“If our girls are back, we would not have to come and stay here and be saying all sorts of things that you don’t want to hear,” Mrs. Yakubu added.
