The South East caucus of the All Progressives Congress has said the rescue of one of the abducted Chibok school girls has put former President Goodluck Jonathan, his wife Patience, and Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose to shame.
Amina Ali, one of the school girls, was rescued on Wednesday by the Civilian Joint Task Force and Nigerian troops.
Spokesperson of the caucus, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, who spoke on behalf of the caucus in Abuja, on Thursday said these Nigerians were among the cynics who doubted the veracity of the abduction of the girls.
He explained that if President Buhari has remained indifferent like his predecessor, Jonathan, the penetration of Sambisa forest would have been impossible.
Okechukwu said, “Indeed the rescue of Amina Ali has put to shame people like the former First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan and Governor of Ekiti, His Excellency, Ayo Fayose, who up to date thought the abduction of the girls was a scam, meant to demonise Jonathan regime.
“We salute the gallant Bring Back Our Girls, the Nigeria armed forces, the JTF and the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria, for their fortitude, resilience and perseverance.
“Our message to the parents of the remaining school girls is that they should bear in mind that with God nothing is impossible. Their hope should not wane, as we have every hope that more girls will be rescued.”
According to him, the South-East APC remains hopeful that the remaining school girls will be found and rescued.
