The Chairman of the House Committee on Diaspora Affairs, Mrs AbikeDabiri-Erewa, on Wednesday said that whatever strategy the Federal government was using to curb the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria was not working hence the need to seek help of experts both within and outside Nigeria.
Dabiri-Erewa while speaking at a “Girls in ICT Day” workshop in Lagos, described President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to Kano to sing and dance a day after the Nyanya bombing and on a day 234 girls were abducted in Borno as insensitive, callous, preposterous and very very annoying.
She called on President Jonathan to apologize not only to the families and victims of the Nyanya bombings but also to the families of the abducted girls and to all Nigerian women.
Dabiri-Erewa also called on all mothers to be united and mobilise in demanding and pleading for the release of the abducted girls.
“The recent bombing in Nyanya, an outskirt of the Federal Capital territory and the abduction of over 200 girls from a secondary school in Borno has shown that efforts by the nation’s security do not seem to be working effectively.
“The fight on terrorism is yet to curb the insurgency situation in Nigeria and such huge security challenge cannot be allowed to continue.
“Nigeria needs assistance even from security experts across the globe that must not necessarily be Nigerians” she stated.
The Lawmaker decried the abduction of innocent little girls by the Boko Haram sect and appealed to them to set them free.
