The parents of the abducted Chibok girls have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to step down if he can’t rescue the missing girls.

The call was made by a parent, Reverend Mark Enoch on Thursday, August 25, 2016, during the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) protest march in Abuja.

“The Chibok girls’ parents are sorry for voting you as president. We expected you to work harder for Nigeria. We voted for you because you promise to rescue our girls. You said you don’t have any credible intelligence but the insurgents has helped you by saying that they are open for negotiation. We are asking you to go there and negotiate,” Enoch said.

“Are you not interested to bring them back? We have intelligence in Nigeria, why don’t you bring back this girls. Are you not a general? We are all Nigerians. As it happened to us, it will happen to the others. If the president is incapable to rescue the girls, he should step down. He cannot say you don’t know where they are.

“I cannot sleep thinking about my two daughters. If they are your daughters, won’t you have given orders for them to be rescued? Why won’t you give order? Why can’t you give orders? Is there something behind the whole Chibok girls’ abduction thing?

“You are not even listening to the parents. The way you entertain us the last time, show you don’t have interest in us. If you can’t work, get down and let somebody take over,” he added.
