UK to support Nigeria on rescuing Chibok girls
By Shola Daniel, Abuja
The United Kingdom (UK), on Tuesday, restated its commitment towards rescuing the Chibok schoolgirls.
According to the UK, there is no justification for the abduction of the girls
The UK’s Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, in a statement titled: “One Year Anniversary of the Chibok Abductions” and made available by the British High Commission in Abuja, pledged that his country would work closely with Nigeria’s new government of Gen Muhammadu Buhari towards restoring security and prosperity to areas blighted by conflict.
“We must not forget the brutal abduction of 270 schoolgirls from Chibok one year ago today. My thoughts are with the victims of this terrible crime, their families and the thousands of other men, women and children abducted by Boko Haram in North East Nigeria. There can be no justification for these abductions.
“The UK is supporting Nigeria and its neighbours in efforts to end the conflict and find those abducted. And we will work closely with Nigeria’s new government to restore security and prosperity to areas blighted by conflict,” he said.
‘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.’
