Borno state Governor, Kashim Shettima has said the Bring back our girls group (BBOG ) has never taken out time to visit Chibok community.
Shettima stated this when Minister of women Affairs, Aisha Jumai Alhassan paid him a courtesy visit at the government house Maiduguri on Friday.
Shettima said the protests could be seen as politically motivated since none of the members of the group has deemed it fit to visit the affected community.
“Just last week, we expended a whooping sum of N25 million for the education of the 56 Chibok school girls that escaped from Boko Haram and none of the members of BBOG has visited Chibok to know about the feelings of the parents of the girls.
“They can make a whole lot of noise from the comfort of Abuja, they can dramatize the whole thing. Some of them are former minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and know the protocol of visiting the President, but choose to dramatize their visit.
“Majority of victims of Boko Haram are women and children. In Maiduguri, the capital city of Borno state, we have over 39,000 orphans and in Monguno local government area of the state, we have over 38000 of them and the same applies to other parts of the state. And yet no group or pressure group nor characters in the social media cares to know about this “, Shettima said.
He said the group has to be controlled urgently before it transforms to something more than Boko Haram.
