Dapchi schoolgirls: We have no faith in Buhari’s promises – Parents

Posted by
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari

Some parents of the 110 Dapchi missing schoolgirls have expressed their lack of faith in President Muhammadu Buhari’s promise during his visit that the girls would be rescued.

DAILY POST reported that President Muhammadu Buhari last week Wednesday visited families of the 110 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents at Government Girls Science and Technical School, Dapchi, on February 19.

But the parents have now said that they were not convinced by the president’s words and promise to use military operation to rescue their daughters.

Kachalla Bukar, the secretary of the forum of parents of abducted Dapchi girls, said only the rescue of the girls could convince them of government’s efforts.

He told Sun, “We are not convinced about efforts to rescue our girls because we haven’t seen anything. We haven’t seen much of the military work.

“The Buhari that we know is a gentleman. I don’t think he will stand before us and promise to rescue our girls without fulfilling it. Of course, we are not convinced about the efforts to bring them back since we’ve not seen anything.”

Similarly, Zara Adamu, one of the parents, said only the safe return of her daughter could convince her.

“Baba Buhari has spoken. I don’t know what they are doing to bring our daughters back, but he said they are doing something. I will be convinced when I see my daughter back alive,” she said.

Mother of one of the girls, Harira Damagun also said, “Only Allah cannot fail, not human being, we have taken the incident as an act of God.

“We see it as an act of God. Oh Allah, help us from this predicament and save our children!

“All we plead is for the government to help us secure the release of our daughters,” she said.
