The Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, on Saturday said that the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno state on April 14, 2014, was to present the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan as incompetent.
In a message posted on his personal Facebook timeline on Saturday, Okupe also alleged that the renowned #BringBackOurGirls group was formed in order to “sustain and internationalise” the agenda of incompetency against the outgoing administration.
“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,” he said. “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 handover 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.”
The Chibok schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents have spent over a year in the den of their kidnappers.
