Presidency Lied! Aso Rock’s Letter to Chibok Parents Exposes Unjust Attack on #BringBackOurGirls Group
The politicization of the abduction of over 200 girls from Chibok in Borno State and the desperate attempt by the presidency to link it with the opposition and in particular, the Bring Back Our Girls movement has been exposed in a letter the presidency wrote to parents of the abducted girls. [See letter below]
The presidency had yesterday accused the BringBackOurGirls group of deliberately stopping 12 parents of the schoolgirls from meeting with him as scheduled, an accusation the group vehemently denied.
Addressing State House correspondents after leaving the president’s office, Okupe said, “The meeting was scheduled for 4pm today at the instance of the request that was made by Malala and the president graciously agreed within 24 hours to meet with them. But, unfortunately, the #BringBackOurGirls leadership prevailed on the parents of the girls, and stopped them from coming.
Subsequently, the presidency wrote a formal letter to the parents asking for their audience, letter sent from the State House to parents of the Chibok girls clearly shows the State House was aware the parents couldn’t attend the meeting with the President because they wanted more parents of the abducted girls represented.
A part of the letter which reads: “This meeting was to have taken place today (15th July 2014) but had to be postponed as we were informed that the parents needed more time to be organised” corroborates the position of the Chibok parents whose statement released on Wednesday described Totally Misleading, Unjust, the claims by the presidency that the group encouraged them into shunning the meeting with Jonathan.
It thus put paid to the claim by the presidency that the Bring Back Our Girls group were responsible for the cancellation of the meeting with the president.
