Former Nigeria President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has said that all hope of bringing back the Chibok girls alive after about two years of being captured by Boko Harram militants seems to have been lost finally.
He also asked Nigerian leaders to stop deceiving the populace for Chibok girls cannot return again.
Fielding questions from the audience Friday Night, at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Staff Club, at a programme tagged, “7th Roundtable with Obj”, the former president blamed the immediate past administration for the fate of the Chibock girls.
He attributed the non discovery of the Chibok girls with non-challant attitude of the previous leader who he said failed to take the right action immediately which constituted impediment to their return.
His words: “72 hours after the Chibok girls were adopted was too late for their rescue, not talk less getting to two years by April. “So if any leader is promising bringing back the Chibok girls to Nigeria, he is lying” .
Obj stressed. According to him, majority of these girls would by now have died, while those alive would have married or sexually violated.
On the discord between him and Nobel Laurete, Professor Wole Soyinka, Obasanjo said Soyinka is no man to be trusted. According to the ex-president, ‘I will trust wole soyinka as an “aparo hunter” dan trusting him as a political analyst. I have no issue with him.
