Oby Ezekwesili condemns Femi Adesina's comment on Leah Sharibu's release

Femi Adesina, while answering questions on efforts to secure Leah Sharibu’s release during an interview, said only God knows when she will return.

Oby Ezekwesili, the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) co-founder, has described the Presidency’s comment on Leah Sharibu’s release as a shame.

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, while answering questions on efforts to secure Leah’s release during an interview on Channels TV, said only God knows when she will return.

Ezekwesili reacts

The BBOG co-founder said “Who else listened to the President’s media aide Femi Adesina find anything worthy to laugh about while speaking about abducted children & their parents?

“A Spokesperson that never has FACTS on Hot Button Issues — ‘I believe’ ‘I expect’, ‘some agency not Presidency’. Na REAL waa.

“I forced myself to listen to a Media Aide to the President who seems to blame Nigerians for not ‘seeing’ the imaginary great things that have been done.

“Totally TONE DEAF and lacking the capacity to LEARN from perennial failures of the administration he communicates. BIG SHAME.”

Sharibu was among over 100 girls abducted by Boko Haram from a secondary school in Dapchi, Yobe state.

She was held back when they released her mates because she refused to denounce Christianity.
