PDP faction's statement on freed chibok girls is indecent, inhuman - FG says

The Federal Government has described as indecent, inhuman and ill-timed the statement credited to a faction of the PDP criticising the process that led to the release of the 82 Chibok Girls over the weekend. Recall that the Makarfi-led faction of PDP released a statement yesterday alleging that the exchange of imprisoned Boko Haram members for the 82 Chibok school girls is a setback on the war against insurgency(Read here).

In a statement issued in Abuja today, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said it is patently insensitive for any individual or organization to seek to douse, on the altar of politics, the universal joy that has greeted the release of the 82 girls - the highest number so far freed since their unfortunate abduction under the watch of the PDP over three years ago.

He said from the ill-advised statement, it is clear that the PDP, whose incompetence and cluelessness precipitated the Chibok girls crisis in the first instance, is not wishing and praying for it to end with the safe return of the abducted girls.


''In his inaugural address, President Muhammadu Buhari said the Administration cannot claim to have defeated Boko Haram without rescuing the Chibok girls. He also said this government WILL DO ALL IT CAN to rescue them alive. If that includes swapping some Boko Haram elements for the girls, so what? Will the PDP rather have the girls stay in perpetual captivity, just to prove a ludicrous point? Didn't superpower United States engage in negotiations with the Taliban that led to the exchange of five Taliban fighters for US Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl in 2014? Didn't Israel release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for one Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, in 2011? A lot of factors come into play when a nation has to decide whether or not to engage in prisoner/hostage swap. None, however, trounces the sanctity attached to human life and the consideration for the pains of the loved ones of those involved,''Mohammed said.
He said it is clear that the kind of disdain for human life which the PDP exhibited in its incautious statement is the same reason the poor girls were kidnapped in the first instance, and for which then PDP-controlled Federal Government took what seemed an eternity before even acknowledging the abduction - thus losing critical time for their rescue.
''Since the PDP failed - as it did in everything - to rescue even one of the Chibok girls, the party should hold its peace while this Administration continues to seek the release of all the abducted girls, using every means at its disposal, in addition to working assiduously to end all Boko Haram hostilities,'' the Minister said.

Exactly my point.The previous administration run by the PDP were inactive on this very pertinent issue, now they have complicated issues by showing the same insensitiveness displayed when these poor girls were abducted. Good riddance to bad rubbish (PDP)

The Makarfi led PDP is the one that the nation detest, they want things reverted back to unchecked treasury looting, impunity and above the law administrators.

i totally agree with Lai here...Am surprised PDP has the gut to complain about the negotiation.While we would rather not want to negotiate,i think the deal is fair and they had no choice.Human lives is at stake and govt need to act.PDP has shown lack of proper message on this issue.Some member think it never happened,some question method of recovery and negotiation...but PDP has not shown empathy for these victims and their families.During election people remember these things.

APC created boko haram, they also kidnapped the chibok girls. Therefore, there's nothing special that they're doing. The fool will remain a fool if he refuses to learn.

In the process of trading there are at times means of infiltration. And also when they are debriefing the girls they get essential information which in the long run will be more effective.
When countries negotiaties to get back 1 citizen, apart from value of human life it also helps more in the war. You could never know where the Insurgents had slipped. Luckily they have heard or seen something that could be a major key. You need to look beyond the surface when it comes to security and diplomacy.
