Chibok girls: We regret voting Buhari – Parents | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Parents of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls have expressed their regrets in voting President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

They expressed their feelings after security personnel prevented them from seeing President Buhari in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa yesterday.

Over two hundred girls were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State over 3 years ago by Boko Haram insurgents.

The protesting parents who said they were at the Villa to present their matter directly to the President, described as lukewarm, attitude of Buhari-led government towards rescuing the girls, adding that they regretted voting for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The parents led by Reverend Enoch Mark, who incidentally has two of his daughters among the abducted girls, decried the poor communication attitude of the Presidency with the parents.

While lamenting that several parents of kidnapped girls have died due to emotional trauma, Mark said many more parents were struggling to survive and send their wards to school.

At their resumed protest yesterday, a State House Security official received the parents and promised to pass their message across to the President.

Rev. Mark, on behalf of the parents said, “We are very sorry for giving Mr. President our votes. We voted Mr. President hoping he would rescue our daughters but we have become his enemy.

“Why can’t the President communicate with us, are we not Nigerians? Is that good for a president; a leader to show such attitude. We believe the President is against the Chibok Community.”

They said the Federal Government has continued to send messages of consolation to countries hit by tragedies like plane crashes and earthquakes but failed to do same to the Chibok parents who have been deprived of their children in the last three years.

  1. idiot nonsense ppl, who counts on your votes tlklss of regreting it? biting the hand that is feeding you..if u like regret ur existance not jus ur votes.
    if u regert voting PMB i think u are grateful to GEJ so that ur children hv bn kidnapped.

    1. 9ice one my guy...they should look for GEJ to go and rescuing the girls not PMB

  2. Stupid ingrates. Why didn't you follow GEJ to look for your girls since then? What pains me most is that NOT only chibok girls were abducted but also other women but only the chibok girls parents are the ones causing problems simply because they have access to the villa. So others are non-citizens abi? Abeg make we hear word.

  3. This people should have a heart of gratitude for little effort made by this administration and remember that it not easy as they thought.

    The first rescue started with this administration and it is still ongoing with a statement released some days ago by presidency.
