Chibok Girls: Bakare blasts Buhari, says president not doing enough

Senior Pastor, Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress (APC) of not doing enough to secure the release of the remaining 130 Chibok schoolgirls and Leah Sharibu.

Bakare stated this while speaking during the Bring Back Our Girls Lecture on Saturday in Abuja.

“If any of the Dapchi or Chibok girls were their daughter’s, would they not have done more than they have to ensure their freedom? You can then conclude that we have a government that does not represent our interests as it ought to,” he said, stressing: “If they feel what we feel, they will empathise much more with us and go the extra mile in ensuring that everyone connected to their captivity today is brought to book.”

Referring to both abductions, Bakare wondered how the Federal Government could watch the country ‘beaten twice’ by terrorists and not be ‘shy’. “Whether it is Jonathan’s administration or Buhari’s administration, any government that does not prioritise the security and welfare of the people is already a failed government to start with,” he said.
