The demand was made by the group’s National Coordinator, Nkechi Odoma while speaking to journalists in Abuja, Vanguard reports.

“In 2014, when over 200 girls were abducted from their school in Chibok, Borno State, the wife of the then President, Dame Patience Jonathan released that blockbuster of “Na only you waka come? Diaris Guuuud o”. We recall this unfortunate episode, because, funny as it was then, it typified the mind-set of the Goodluck Jonathan government and all its officials, and as we saw including spouses,” she said.

“So widespread and effective was the propaganda that many Nigerians were misled into believing that the whole kidnap story was hoax or a plot by the opposition to make trouble for the ruling party. It was this criminal denial that led to sincere efforts being made to liberate the girls when efforts should have been made.

“We are therefore elated that one of the Chibok girls, Amina Ali-Nkeki has been rescued and reunited with her family. It is equally uplifting that that reports were filtering in that a second girl was rescued within 24 hours after Ali-Nkeki regained freedom.

“We salute President Muhammadu Buhari for the unique leadership he is providing which has made the same Army that was earlier being humiliated into the effective liberating force that we see today.

“On his part, we expect former President Goodluck Jonathan to take a break from his visits to fancy restaurants and shopping malls around the globe to tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians for lying that the Chibok girls were not abducted and attempting to pass off agitations for their rescue as paid for.

“We similarly call on Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose to do something he is allergic to, apologise. We would have asked him to hang his head in shame now that he has been proven to be a monger of all that is vile, but even that is beyond his reach as he has no capacity for shame.

“The entire saga might have bruised us but we are beginning to find our girls. We are optimistic that there will be a massive liberation soon,” she added.
