From Tope Musowo, Ado-Ekiti
A women’s rights activist, Mrs. Funmi Falana, has accused the federal government of playing politics with the over 200 abducted pupils of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state.
She frowned at the inability of the federal government to secure the freedom of the students abducted by the Boko Haram group.
She expressed her worry during the annual Christmas party with inmates of the Erelu Adebayo Motherless Children Home, Iyin-Ekiti .
At the event, Falana presented items including toiletries, packs of noodles, children toys and others to the children.
“Rather than intensifying effort at winning the children back,” Mrs Falana lamented that “government had been playing politics and was not doing enough to free the captives.
“It is unfortunate. We have been making the advocacy at every opportunity that government should bring back our girls alive. We need them alive, they are precious to us.
“We are crying for their return. We don’t want Nigerian leaders to play politics with the lives of these children. The future is theirs. We need and want them to be brought back.”
