“You Must Rescue Chibok Girls At All Cost” – Tunde Bakare To Buhari
He stated this during the thanksgiving service of the church on the first Sunday of 2016 in Lagos, western Nigeria.
He said it was alright that the President told the nation the truth about not knowing the whereabouts of the girls during his maiden Presidential Media Chat last Wednesday, 29 December, he however, said it was unacceptable to give up on the girls.
He said a special taskforce should be set up specifically to rescue the girls wherever they are and if the heads of intelligence agencies fail to carry out the assignment, they should be sacked.
Pastor Bakare, who is Buhari’s friend and running mate in the 2011 Presidential election, said whatever it would take to rescue the girls, the President must ensure it is done.
Over 200 Chibok schoolgirls were kidnapped by Boko Haram in April 2014 and have been in the terrorists’ captivity supposedly in Sambisa forest since then.
Their abduction elicited sustained global outcry and the failure to rescue them was said to be partly responsible for the defeat of former president, Goodluck Jonathan, in the 28 April, 2015 Presidential election.
