Remember how Chibok mothers were left to weep like wailing wailers at Aso Rock by President Muhammadu Buhari, after he stormed out of a meeting with the the Bring Back Our Girls activists and the parent of the schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram in April 2014 from Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State?

Anyway, the story for today is that President Buhari has finally revealed why he walked out on the mothers and avoided any future contact with the Bring Back Our Girls group.
Hear this: Anything Chibok, appears to affect his emotion health and the president needs to keep his emotions in a healthy mode to govern Nigeria well.
Speaking to CNN’s Christine Amanpour as he attends the global anti-corruption summit hosted by British Prime Minister, David Cameron on Thursday, May 12, 2016, Buhari said,“I saw the families as a group twice. The first time, they came to visit my wife. The second, they came as a group to see me, and the less I see them the better for my own emotional balance.”
Going further, Buhari said, “I try to imagine my 14-year-old year old daughter missing for more than two years. I try to imagine what condition are they in. A lot of the fathers would rather see their graves, than imagine them under such condition.”
Amanpour had asked why his government was suddenly hostile to the Bring Back Our Girls group who were locked out of Aso Rock on the 2nd anniversary of the kidnapping of the Chibok girls in April 2016.
Remember, this is the man who proclaimed he would lead the charge to wage war against Boko Haram from “the front” as president. This is also the man who sold himself as the mean army general who will land in Borno and Boko Haram would come to an end like Maitatsine riots ended “once I landed in Yola”.
It is interesting to find out that Buhari has some kind of “weak heart”.
This is definitely content for the Chibok deniers who feel that the event was stage managed and blown out of proportion by the All Progressives Congress to make then President Goodluck Jonathan look bad in the international community and give Buhari an edge in the 2015 elections.
