The Labour Party (LP) has said Boko Haram never kidnapped the 250 Chibok secondary school girls but a story concocted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to dent the image of former president Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
The party in a statement released Tuesday, May 23 which was signed by its national chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalami, described the recent release of 82 Chibok school girls as a fluke.
He said APC should expect the wrath of God for manipulating parents of the Chibok girls.
“The government should expect the wrath of God for deceiving Nigerians and manipulating the parents of the Chibok girls,” the statement reads.
It further added; “The release of the Chibok girls is a fluke and an ordinary abracadabra. If by this time, they claimed to have captured Sambisa forest, from which other forest will they say they have brought these girls. I think Nigerians need to be told the truth by our leaders, if they want sympathy from Almighty God, what happened to the Chibok girls.
“By the time we get to May 29 next year (2018), they will now release all the remaining girls to say they have fought the war, they have won the war. But the fact of the matter, as I have been saying before, during and after the campaign for the 2015 general elections, is that these Chibok girls were not kidnapped by any Boko Haram.”
“They were prepared and arranged to destroy the image and administration of President Goodluck Jonathan. The present government has worsened the suffering of Nigerians. We have suffered enough, and if Buhari doesn’t leave office, Nigerians should expect worse repercussions from the government.
“If they don’t have capacity, let them get away from government. The APC should step aside and let a responsible government take over the administration of Nigeria. You can’t talk of the government without bringing in APC. Buhari came on the platform of change, using deceit in all its programmes,” the LP said.
