Abduction of Chibok Girls: A Rejoinder to Femi Fani-Kayode’s Article of Disunity
The abduction of Chibok Government Girls School in Borno is totally condemnable but it is very sad that gradually everyday Nigerians are losing our sense of reasoning as a result of the insecurity we are currently facing. It is very pathetic that at this trying period a Public Figure like Femi Fani-Kayode can be inciting people against themselves all in the name of protecting his Paymaster by writing a shameless article that is full of bigotry and political undertone.
That Femi Kayode wrote in his article: “It has been brought to my attention that the majority of the girls that either ”escaped” or were released by their abductors were muslims”. It is very disgusting that a person who is supposed to be an advocate of peace, unity and instill confidence on people as a result of our state of security is now hiding under the platform of social media to pursuing his mischievous act of creating disunity, intolerance and ethnic rivalry
among the populace.
In as much as I do not dispute your claim because I do not know where you got the statistics that made you to arrive at your conclusion but one can deduce from your article that Fani-Kayode is using his religious sentiment to cause disunity and intolerance. When many Muslim students were killed in Yobe, Boniyadi, Dambuwa, Bama, Gwoza and even Maiduguri; we all condemned it without any sentiment and you didn’t even echoe your voice then based on religious bigotry.
Why isit now that we are all clamouring for the release of the abducted girls that you are now trying to justify the FG being your new employer of falsehood and deception to divert our attention from the “BringBackOurGirls” standpoint.
That in your quest to justify Federal Government, you mentioned in your article and further indicting Borno State Governor that the abducted girls was a calculated attempt to rubbish FG when you even admitted that one of the escapees made a testimony and also gave
account of the condition of her colleagues. In your attempt to blackmail Borno Governor you wrote also in your article that: “it has also been brought to my attention that the soldiers that were guarding the school in Chibok were redeployed at the last minute” just before
Boko Haram launched their attack and abducted the children. What hould pertub sensible mind is that- is the Borno Governor has power on the Armed Forces even when there is State of mergency in the State? Who controls the Armed Forces, the State or the FG? I neither try to defend Borno Governor because I am not his Spokesman nor trying to criticize FG but to condemn your shameless and baseless article.
I am very sure that if your children were among the abducted girls; you will prevail on FG to fastrack its attempt of rescuing the girls rather than sitting at the comfort zone of your room trying to promoting disunity and justifying the Federal Government. Nigerians
should wise-up, enough is enough of the religious sentiment; no trick can deter us from the rescue mission. All what we want is Bring Back Our Girls whether Muslims or Christians.
