‘Chibok Schoolgirls Were Never Kidnapped’ – Labour Party
The Labour Party, LP, has unleashed a damning verdict on the country’s politics and the fight against terrorism by claiming the Chibok schoolgirls were never kidnapped by Boko Haram Jihadists but were used to dent the image of former President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
In a shocking statement Tuesday, LP, which has been known to be close to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said the ‘wrath of God’ will be visited on those who manipulated Nigerians with the staged kidnapping.
According to the National Chairman of the party, Abdulkadir Abdulsalami, there’s nothing to celebrate in the release of the girls, Vanguard writes.
“The All Progressives Congress, APC-led government should not claim credit for what was packaged and pre-arranged,” he said.
“If they claimed to have captured Sambisa Forest, from which other forest will they say they have brought the girls recently released? I think Nigerians need to be told the truth by our leaders, if they want sympathy from Almighty God.
“When we get to May 29 next year, they will release all the remaining girls. But the fact of the matter, as I have been saying during and after the campaign for the 2015 elections, is that these Chibok girls were not kidnapped by any Boko Haram.
“They were prepared and arranged to destroy the image and administration of Goodluck Jonathan.”
There has been a back and forth between the ruling APC and members of the opposition following the release of 82 Chibok girls earlier this month.
While President Muhammadu Buhari said it was his second-anniversary gift to Nigerians, his critics claim it was the plan all along, a position many say are backed by the intrigues surrounding the girls’ release.
And the recent stand by Labour Party will only stoke the fires of debate, leaving Nigerians, and the world to wonder what really transpired with the Chibok girls.
