Esther Yakubu, mother to one of the abducted Chibok School girls has said that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is not fit to called a president.
Esther who was almost in tears at the 900 days commemoration of the abduction of 218 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists from their hostel, said the attitude of the president towards the rescue of the girls is unfair.
“It is unfair, he did not deserve to be my president (sobbing) because if he be one, people used to risk life of thousands to rescue one life but 218 are still missing and he has the guts, he had that spirit in him to say that he does not want to talk about it,” Esther said.
President Buhari had at a United Nations meeting in New York said that he would not want to discuss the issue of the abducted school girls anymore.
The president had also called for assistance from the international body in fighting terrorism in Nigeria.
“As my sister said, the president said he doesn’t want to speak about it, we too we don’t want him to say anything but all what we want him to release the fighters so that our girls can come home,” Esther continued.
“We don’t even want him to discuss anything about our girls but to release the fighters (Boko Haram terrorists held by the federal government) so that our girls can come home.
“That is what we want from him and that is what we want him to do for us.
“If our girls are back, we would not have to come and stay here and be saying all sorts of things that you don’t want to hear,” she said.
She said what is important to her and her family is for the missing girls to be rescued so that they can be reunited with their families and siblings.
Esther is a mother to Dorcas, one of the girls that was abducted by the terrorist group on April 14, 2014.
Dorcas who appeared in a recent video released by the group had in a similar note begged President Muhammadu Buhari to bid to the demands of the group and facilitate their release.
