Chibok Girls: CAN President Oritsejafor Attacks Governor Shettima
The Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima has once again come under the attack of President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor over the April 14 abduction of school girls in Chibok, Borno State.
Oritsejafor, who is the The President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, in a telephone interview with Punch correspondent saidGovernor Kashim Shettima should be held responsible for the abduction of the over 200 schoolgirls for refusing to heed the earlier advice given by the West African Examination Council.
Oritsejafor flayed the governor for not relocating the girls before the Boko Haram insurgents seized them in their hostel on April 14, 2014.
He said many people had been killed by the Boko Haram terrorists because the governor abdicated his primary responsibility of protection of lives and property.
Oritsejafor, however, asked the governor to stop blaming the Federal Government for his failure to protect the lives of the citizens.
He said, “The principal of the Government Girls School in Chibok, where the girls were kidnapped, is a Muslim, the vice-principal is a Muslim, so, they should explain where these abducted girls are being kept.
“Despite the earlier advice given by the West African Examination Council that the girls should be relocated to a safer place because Chibok was not safe, the governor and the principal ignored the advice. So, they should be held responsible.
“Many Christians are being kidnapped daily in Borno State. Just recently, a pastor’s wife and her three children were kidnapped and nobody is asking question.
“It is also pertinent that the governors of the three states under emergency rule should be removed to pave the way for the military to ensure security of lives because it appears that the interests of the governors differ from those of the military.”
Oritsejafor, however, commended the military and their foreign collaborators for intensifying effort in locating the girls.
He said, “The military are doing their job; they are trying their best to secure the release of these girls, so they deserve our commendation.”
