I was very diappointed"- Oby Ezekwesili Reacts to Buhari's CNN Comment on Chibok Girls


In an exclusive interview with Christine Amanpour, CNN's senior international correspondent, which aired by 7:00pm yesterday, President Buhari, was quoted as saying that he has not seen the proof of life video released last month by CNN where 15 of the abducted Chibok girls were recorded by Boko Haram showing they are alive and well. 

 
President Buhari said in the interview that he has to protect his own emotions in issues pertaining to the missing girls. "I haven't seen that video but even if I see it, I will be very careful about showing it to the families. There is no point to deliberately raise hopes of the families if you can't meet them. I saw the families as a group twice. 


"One, they came to visit my wife, two, they came as a group to see me and the less I see them the better for my own emotional balance. I try to imagine my 14 year old daughter, 14-18, missing for more than two years and trying to imagine what condition are they in. 


"A lot of the parents will rather see their grave than imagine the condition they are in now. Its tragic," he said.

 
The president's comment triggered mixed reactions and criticisms from the general public, as former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, also reacted to the controversial comment which was aired worldwide last night.

 
The outspoken Bring Back Our Girls campaigner feels Buhari's comments are disappointing.
