The minister of Information, Alh. Lai Mohammed has told former President Goodluck Jonathan to stop pointing fingers to everyone as it concerns the kidnapping of the Chibok girls who were abducted under his tenure as the President of the country.
The advice was contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alh Lai Mohammed, following the former President’s reaction to the report by a British newspaper that the British armed forces’ offer to attempt to rescue the girls were rebuffed by then President Jonathan.
Mr. Mohammed said, ‘’While former President Jonathan reserves the right to defend his administration, he should not engage in finger-pointing by saying, in a statement, that ‘some people who have obviously been playing politics with the issue of the Chibok girls will stop at nothing to further their interest.”
He also said, ‘’After the girls were kidnapped and the Jonathan Administration did nothing for all of 15 days or make any determined efforts to rescue them thereafter, our party, the then opposition APC, told the nation several times that the whole Boko Haram crisis was allowed to escalate by the PDP-controlled Federal Government so they can use it as a political tool ahead of the 2015 elections.”
