Chibok nobody can bring back the girls Obasanjo

Chibok Kidnapping: "Nobody can
bring back the girls because they
are nowhere to be found"-
Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said the over
200 girls abducted by Boko Haram in Chibok,
Borno State may never be found because their
whereabout is unknown.
He stated this on Friday, February 5 while fielding
questions during the Seventh Roundtable with
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a programme organised
by Obafemi Awolowo University Staff Club.
"The search for the abducted Chibok girls
may not be fruitful. Nobody can bring back
the girls because they are nowhere to be
found." he said.
Obasanjo blamed former President Goodluck
Jonathan for ignoring the distress call to rescue
the girls on the day they were abducted.
"The former president heard about the
kidnap 8am in the morning of the abduction
but failed to act until 72 hours later and by
then it was too late."
"Anyone saying the Chibok girls will return
is telling lies, maybe some of them will
return to tell their story."
According to him, the best efforts to rescue the
girls can yield is that few of the girls may be
found.
He described the failure of the Peoples Democratic
Party(PDP) in the 2015 presidential election as a
blessing to Nigeria.
Responding to a question posed to him about the
constant fight between him and Prof. Wole Soyinka,
Obasanjo described the playwright and Nobel
laureate as a hunter rather than a political analyst.
"I will trust Wole Soyinka as an "aporo
hunter" than trusting him as a political
analyst. I have no ssue with him"
