Count us out of FG/Boko Haram negotiation – BBOG | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


The BringBackOurGirls coalition has said it does not wish to be part of the ongoing negotiation for the release of the Chibok girls.

The group, said while it welcomed the decision of the government to swap Boko Haram fighters in detention for the girls, it was not interested in being part of the negotiation team.

The BBOG spokesman, Abdulahi Abubakar, said the coalition, would however continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly.

He said, “This (negotiation with Boko Haram) is what we have been asking the government to do all this time. But we would not be part of the negotiation, the government should go ahead with the process, we welcome it and would continue to monitor developments.”

The group had earlier expressed hope that the disclosure of the ongoing negotiation with Boko Haram, would signal a new period of feedback to the Chibok parents and the public by the government.

It said, “Our movement has been asking for feedback on our government’s rescue efforts since our last meeting of January 14, 2016 to no avail. So we consider today’s (Friday) briefing by the Federal Government, a start.

“We welcome every factual communication of their effort to bring back our girls and hope that this signals a new period of continuous feedback to parents, our movement and the general public. Our movement will monitor progress in the next one week and act accordingly.”

  1. Count you out of negotiations for the possible release of the Chibok girls, yet you take your protest to the president everyday , seating always at unity fountain. If the military don't trade with cautious and the same girls are hurt in the use of kinetics in forceful rescue operations , you will still blame the president and military. Please advice the president on the way forward. Enough is enough of your back and front talk.

    1. God bless you.Similar to my feelings. All some people keep doing to this govt is criticise everything about it without offering alternative solutions to it for people to assess how sound they are.And if you dare challenge them they return with insults.
