Dapchi abduction: Buhari’s administration surviving on deceit – Group


A Non-governmental Organisation, Advocacy for Advancement of Peace and Harmony in Africa Initiative (ADAPHAI) has said that the circumstances that surrounded the abduction of 110 school girls from Yobe State portrayed Muhammadu Buhari led administration as a government of deceit.

The group, in a press statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Sulaimon Suberu and made available to newsmen on Monday noted that porous security architecture around schools in the frontline states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe, after the ugly incident at Chibok in 2014 suggests lack of proactiveness and sensitivity.

Subaru argued that the All Progressive Congress(APC) at the opposition then had criticised President Goodluck Jonathan for lack of proactiveness, adding that for the party to have committed the same error shows that the present government of APC is “solely predicated on sheer deceit “.

According to him, the earlier reports of denial of any abduction and subsequent rescue of the lads, which eventually turned out to be falsehood were a big embarrassment for the country and a government that won election on change mantra.

“Going by the intensity of criticism that greeted the lukewarm disposition of Jonathan’s administration towards the abduction of over 200 girls from Government Girls Secondary school at Chibok, Borno State mainly from APC, one would have thought that this party has better alternative to governance.

” The array of unresolved socio-economic challenges in Nigeria of today, coupled with degenerating internal security, Nigerians need no soothsayer to tell them that the APC’s government was ill-prepared for governance.

” It should not take a serious government more than 24 hours to brief it’s citizens the fact of such a matter of National disgrace, unlike what is obtainable in Nigeria, where the government could not confirm the kidnap of over hundred school girls until after seven days, this is pathetically bizarre”, the statement said.

The group however said the state of girl-child education in the region is presently in shambles, since the security and safety of young girls could not be guaranteed, saying every effort to change the high level of illiteracy among young girls in the region is becoming counterproductive.

” This development in the North East, with high prevalence of illiteracy among young girls is a big National challenge, it poses a serious danger to girl-child education in the region.

“The girl-child is indeed the harbinger of nationhood, no nation develops and attain enviable growth without giving qualitative education to the girl-child.

“This government must quickly live above political gimmicks and deceit, it must take the security and welfare of its citizens serious the way it had painted itself before 2015.
