Victory Over Boko Haram Is Incomplete Without The ReleaseOf Chibok Girls-Tinubu Tells Buhari

By Ikenga Chronicles December 26, 2016

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Bola Tinubu has on Sunday, December, 2016 faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim of victory over Boko Haram. According to him,there is no victory over Boko Haram without the liberation of the remaining 179 Chibok Girls.

276 Chibok school girls were in April 2014 abducted by Boko Haram militants. 57 of them escaped immediately in 2014, and one was found later ànd 21 released in October, leaving 197 still in captivity.

The Buhari-led government had last year maintained that the war against Boko Haram would not be said to be won unless all the kidnapped Chibok Girls are freed from the stronghold of Boko Haram.

Recall that the Nigerian Army’s Operation Lafiya Dole had reportedly captured Boko Haram’s Camp located in the heart of Sambisa forest, with the Presidency immediately claiming that total victory has been recorded against the dreaded terrorist group.

Tinubu has now faulted this claim in a statement released by his media office:

“I congratulate the nation, President Buhari and the army for crushing Boko Haram in their last stronghold of Sambisa Forest. I congratulate the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole for their bravery and resilience. They have given the nation a most wonderful Christmas gift.”

“I know the insurgents were engaged in their last desperate acts and merely clutching to their last straw. Now they have been put down. Terror will have no place in our land. The end is here.”

“I commend the troops. I thank them again for their courage and bravery. It’s time to finish the job and locate and liberate the remaining Chibok schoolgirls abducted from their school in 2014.”

“As we sink ourselves in the Christmas celebration, let us remember to pray for the troops. Let us remember that for them, there was no Christmas.”

“Let us also spare a thought for the Internally Displaced Persons. We must support them and give them hope.”
