Doyin Okupe Mocks #BringBackOurGirls Protesters, Says El-Rufai is their Sponsor
Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe has made a mockery of the protest organised as part of the Glabal week of Action to commemorate the 183rd day and the 6th months since the Chibok Girls were abducted from their school in Chibok.
The presidential adviser took to his twitter handle to mock the group few hours after the engaged officials of the government near the villa.
The group has turned out in numbers in Abuja to march to the Aso Rock residence of the president to demand answers to about 11 questions bothering on the fate of the girls, but where stopped by a team of armed mobile policemen and soldiers who provided cover behind the policemen.
Okupe who started his tweet saying that the group must change their tactics, opined that Nigerians don’t just believe them. He said only 48 persons attended the protest and called it a no show.
This is however contrary to what we witnessed throughout the over 3 hours that the protest lasted. Hundreds of protesters participated in the protest, a feat that may have necessitated the heavy presence of security personnel at all entry and exit route leading to and from the villa.
According to Okupe, “BBOG must change their tactics.d present style is neither working nor producing d desired result. Or is it that Nigerians just don’t believe in them?”
“BBOG’s outing with 48 people today was a no show & why insult min of water resources Sarah Ochepa for God’s sake? Frustration or anger from failure?”, Okupe added.
Okupe, who had earlier accused the former minister of the Federal Capital territory, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai of sponsoring the group, said the leader of the group, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili and her team should disband and go home.
“Evidence abound that mallam el Rufai is the principal founder, financier and promoter of the BBOG advocacy group. Now elections are close again.”
“With today’s poor and shameful outing, Oby and her team should disband and go home. It’s becoming a sordid affair. There must b other ways of seeking attention”
“BBOG said they wanted an update. The NIC invited them to come for briefing. But they chose to roam d street in a fruitless pursuit”, Okupe said.
