Dapchi Girls: Obasanjo’s Coalition Condemns Abduction
The Coalition for Nigeria Movement, led by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has condemned the abduction of Dapchi schoolgirls.
In a statement by one Omoruyi Edoigiawerie for the National Steering Committee, the coalition called on the Federal Government and security agencies to do everything possible to ensure that the girls were rescued.
The CNM said terrorists must not be allowed to stop or hinder the girl-child education.
The statement read in part, “While we empathise with the parents of our dear daughters, we call on the Federal Government of Nigeria to intensify its fight against terrorism and all forms of extremism and criminality. This cannot become the norm.
“Our resolve to push for a Nigeria that typifies socio-economic development, social justice, equity, equality of opportunity, human security, human rights, good governance and the general wellbeing of all its citizens and inhabitants remains unshaken.”
