The European Union (EU) has expressed solidarity with the #BringBackOurGirls’ group on the occasion of the one year anniversary of the abducted schoolgirls of Chibok Community in Borno State.
In a statement by the EU Spokesperson, Catherine Ray, yesterday in Abuja, the commission said it is ready to assist the government of Nigeria, including the newly-elected president, Gen Muhammadu Buhari, in the fight against Boko Haram and all forms of terrorism and criminality.
“A year has passed since 287 school girls from Chibok, in north-eastern Nigeria, were abducted by Boko Haram. Though some girls escaped, others have since been taken and more than 300 girls are still missing.
“We express our solidarity with the plight of the families and with the ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ campaign. All efforts must continue to be made to rescue and reunite the girls with their families, and bring the perpetrators of this terrible act to account.
“The EU remains ready to assist the Government of Nigeria, including the newly elected President and local authorities, as well as others in the region in their fight against Boko Haram and all forms of terrorism and criminality,” the statement read
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
