No time limit for returning Chibok girls alive – Nigerian Presidency

The Nigerian presidency has dismissed concerns over the prolonged abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls from Chibok, Borno State, saying the government has no time limit to return the long-suffering teenagers alive to their families.

The message, delivered Monday by a presidential spokesperson, appeared to imply that the government is taking its time to rescue the girls who have been in Boko Haram captivity for nearly nine months.

The girls were kidnapped on April 14 by the extremist group, which has recently seized territories in Nigeria and is pushing for the creation of an Islamic State.

The Nigerian government has in the past ruled out the use of force for the rescue of the girls.

Attempts at negotiations have also failed, the biggest being a ceasefire the government said it agreed with Boko Haram in October, which turned out false.

Speaking on Channels TV programme, Sunrise Daily, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, said the government had no time limit on when the girls should be expected home alive.

“There is no time limit for returning the girls alive,” Mr. Okupe said. “The issue of the Chibok girls is a national tragedy that must be borne with fortitude. Government has not given up on finding and rescuing the girls.

Mr. Okupe said the Chibok girls’ case remains a “major thorn in the flesh of this administration”, and assured that the government would have done anything possible to have them released if that were possible “yesterday”.
Mr. Okupe said the issue demanded extreme caution to avoid losing the girls.

Describing the girls’ kidnap as not the regular incident involving the seizure of one or two persons, the presidential spokesperson said the rescue of over 200 girls must be handled with utmost care.

“Any mistake will lead to their death. That is why we (the government) are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea,” he said.

He cited President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to Chad’s President Idriss Deby, as an indication of the extent the government would be prepared to go to have the girls back.

On the security situation in the North East, particularly in states where emergency was declared, Mr. Okupe said the military was now in “total and perfect control”, as the insurgents have since been driven out from all territories, including Mubi, Baga, and Gwoza, they were said to have occupied.

According to him, the military has not only re-organised itself, it has overhauled its operational and administrative capacity with increased funding and equipment.

He said the insurgency in Nigeria has since taken a multi-national colouration, which was beyond the country, with the extremists group having contacts with networks in the Islamic Maghreb, Al Qaeda and ISIS that are ideologically highly motivated than the soldiers.

“Ideological insurgency is an extremely difficult situation to cope with. That is why I say we are in a state of war. Soldiers are not trained to kill themselves like the insurgent. They are trained to use their weapons to stave off the attack of the enemy,” he said.

“Even if the government were to line up the over 200,000 military men Nigeria has along the over 1,500 kilometres distance of the North East border, Mr. Okupe said it would not be adequate to secure the area, as they would still be about 10 metres apart from each other.”

  • GEJ could not have made contingency plans for an abduction he and his people never believed occured.

  • Olu Ade

    It took 18days for a Commander in Chief with all the apparatus of intelligence network (including Mariln Ogar’s DSS) to accept the reality that the girls were even kidnapped…even, there is still a sizable number of Dumbo’s supporters who still believe that the girls were not kidnapped, that it was to prevent Dumbo’s re-election…So, how do we believe anything that comes from Okupe’s mouth?

    • Mosaku 147

      An old acquaintance of mine told me last week that he and his people still don’t believe anyone got missing. Can you just imagine a nigerian’s thought all because it took mr dumbo and his fat for nothing SA Doyin and very ugly Abati plus his mascara painted face Marylyn,18days to believe that anybody got missing.what a leader!
      Why,why Nigerians. why did we allow this man in the first place.

  • Preco01

    Maybe the girls are “HOLED” up in a dormitory in the presidency..

  • endingNaija

    I have simple observations and questions. First , observation: On the eve of the declaration by President Jonathan to re-contest the 2015 elections, President Jonathan and his military said based on negotiation with Boko Haram, the Chibok girls would be back within 24 hours. The Nigerian military “suspended” the “fight” against Boko Haram then as a result of a “ceasefire” between Boko Haram and President Jonathan’s govt. After President Jonathan declared to re-contest, he “forgot” about the Chibok girls only to again “remember’ that they are not home! Questions: Why did President Jonathan and his military tell us on the eve of his declaration to contest 2015 elections that the Chibok girls would be back home “within 24 hours”? (2) Who or which “Boko Haram” did President Jonathan “negotiate” with? (3) Who in President Jonathan’s govt signed the “ceasefire” with “Boko Haram” which led to the PROMISE by President Jonathan and his military that the Chibok girls will be back in 24 hours?. (4) How much changed hands between President Jonathan’s govt and those in “Boko Haram” who President Jonathan negotiated with? (5) Why are the Chibok girls not home after President Jonathan’s govt “negotiated” with “Boko Haram” and allegedly paid some money? (6) If President Jonathan’s govt SIGNED an agreement and a ceasefire with “Boko haram” on the basis that the Chibok girls would be back in 24 hours and they are not back, is this COMPETENCE IN GOVERNANCE on the part of President Jonathan? (7) Can President Jonathan be trusted again as Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria? (8) Did President Jonathan DECEIVE us? (9) Was President Jonathan trying to calm the nation before his declaration so as to have the “right atmosphere” to declare? Doyin Okupe and Reuben Abati should try to answer to these questions. But more importantly I expect President Jonathan’s paid online names which are coordinated by his New Media Adviser to give prompt and as usual fraudulent and tribally motivated responses to my questions. These names which Reno Wendel Omokri coordinates are otile/oleku/akpos1/Tawanda/the truth/ Temmie/Deacon/mani_kay/mpitikwelu/. Others are Gideon Orkar/redeem etc. President Jonathan’s e-rats please RUSH in and give us what you people in Aso Rock have to say with these posers and questions.

    • Mosaku 147

      They can’t in this lifetime. Put all of them together,they still can’t sincerely answer you.instead they will come in the dark when you are asleep with insults. Useless,good for nothing animals.
      May God deliver his people from the hands of satan personified.Amen.

  • Wähala

    In crime watch, 24hrs is eternity…
    Dr. Dumbo did not believe the kidnapping took place when it mattered most, in fact, he went dancing in Kano after visiting the scene of a bombing carnage. Even after that, it took another 18days for him to sober-up and admit our virgins were missing before setting up a fact-finding committee to go tabulate their names. All his didinrin attitude towards the saga ridiculed Nigeria among the comity of nations, and his drum-wife was not left out in their show-of-shame… and of course, the BH had all the time in the world to tow the girls away which is still where we are. Would the insensitive Doyin Okupe be saying there’s no “Statute of Limitation” for rejoining the girls with their families if his daughter were among them… dead or alive? So, that is their evil attitude towards this world Boko Haram insurgency. Baba Iyabo said in his book, My Watch, that Dumbo once told him… “I don’t care about the war on terrorism because they are my enemies kidnapping and killing off themselves”. Therefore, only a pfool would believe anything that comes our of fat Okupe’s pungent mouth. Olosi ni !!!

    • Oleku

      Who told you the girls are virgin–desist from saying what you have no clue about. Let me enlighten you a bit, you see in Islam virginity is not encouraged, girls are deflowered before they could become women and start undergoing menstruation, this is evident in the quran where Mohammed himself got himself a beautiful child bride at 9years old,

      Nigerians Should be very careful of Buhari and Tinubu.

      In many Islamic countries, the penalties for crimes far outweight the crimes themselves.

      Saudi (population 28 mil), women even in their 60s are publicly beaten for leaving the home without a male escort.

      In Iran (pop 75 mil), women are not permitted to attend football matches and are stone to death for adultery.

      Afghanistan (pop 35 mil) the penalty for changing religions (“Abrahamic or not) is death.

      In Sudan (pop 34 mil) it is legal to slice the clitoris of a 12 year old girl to keep her from straying.

      In Pakistan (pop 177 mil), eight male witnesses are needed to convict a man of rape.

      The South is not a perfect place. There is crime a suffering there
      and there are many laws in the Judeo-Christian bible that are unjust.
      But these laws are not the laws of the land.

      The barbarity of the laws of many Muslim countries, with populations
      in the tens or hundreds of millions, proves their lack of civility and
      corruption of what the word of god is.

      • Okelade Kehinde

        What then is your point? If a government has shown that it is incapable of providing security for all, should we still keep that weak government? Let’s no trivialize the issue, these innocent girls have ben gone for over 9 months and GEJ is doing nothing to rescue them. What value does the government place on the life of its citizenry, to deny the abduction of these girl is the greatest sins.

  • Credo2015

    President Jonathan tenders excuses instead of results. That’s proof of his incompetence.
    Nigeria is in dire straits now and need get off the precipice of a steep cliff where it risks a fall.
    Excuses are worse than useless for Nigerians in distress. That’s the point Jonathan’s missing.

  • sammyctu ode

    This okupe of a man has nothing to say. He is just trying to reconstruct a bad script that can NEVER be repaired. There was a 48 hrs window to rescue the girls but jonathan and the likes of evil okupe went to sleep, secondly, it took 18 days for jonathan to admit that the girls were kidnapped, meanwhile jonathan illiterate wife was telling the whole world that the chibok girls were not kidnapped. What okupe is doing is trying to get the sympathy of Nigerians because of 2015 but he and his principal are not going to get it because they have mismanaged everything for the past 6 years and we are tired of an inept, clueless, evil, very corrupt an uncompassionate government that disrespect Nigerians at every stage. TIME TO GO jonathan and your government that has plunged us into many negatives.

    Blasphemy! Blasphemy!! Blasphemioo… Doyin Okupe compared Dumbo to Jesus Christ!
    “People do not understand the burden this President is bearing. He’s like Jesus Christ. He’s carrying the burden of everybody” – obese Dr. Doyin Okupe (ripe for Aro!)

    @Premium Times…
    Why didn’t you give us the full gist of what transpired at that Channels TV program… erh? Why didn’t this reporter tell us everything Dr. Doyin Didinrin said during the referenced Sunrise Daily show on Channels? Doyin Okupe committed the only unforgivable sin warned against in the Bible and you guys are hoarding the gist, ba? Well, I did my quick research of the said program and heard every word Okupe said, he blasphemed God by comparing a creek crook to God. We now have ‘Doyin Jesos’, Dr. Dumbo and the Jesos of Okrika, Lady Hippo… we’re getting there. Baba Iyabo said there are five Nigerian Presidents, maybe, there are also five Nigerian Jesos to go along with them. Kaka, indeed!

    • endingNaija

      the “truth” as an Ijaw man yourself, you are one of the most untruthful and hopeless partisan carrying your ethnic bias behind the Ijaw President-Goodluck Jonathan. President Jonathan and his military SIGNED a CEASEFIRE with a non-existent group, and President Jonathan with his mouth TOLD Nigerians that the Chibok girls will be back in 24 hours. Today the Chibok girls are not back. It means President Jonathan LIED and DECEIVED Nigerians. And you DEVIOUSLY EVADED that most sinful and evil act from Goodluck Jonathan. And you think we will not notice. You are one of the most horrible defenders of Goodluck Jonathan and your deception is sinful, disgraceful and shameless.

    • tundemash

    Doyin Okupe is an Hippocracy , a Sadducee to the core, when your boss uncle was kidnapped in Bayelsa , there was urgency to locate him , when Iweala Okonjo’s mother was kidnaped in Delta, the ransome was paid with speed and she was released witchin few weeks. You ,Okupe didn’t say u were taken time to make sure they both come back alive.Now these 200+ Chibok virgins are allowed to languish under the spell of terror , if your daughter and Abati’s daughter are among the 200+, is this the way you will be talking trash?

  • Oleku

    Delusionists!
    Now Buhari has made it clear he will contest again after lying to us in 2011 that he wont contest again.
    According to him the only credible elections of 2011 were those won by APC…what a childish mentality.
    From his stance the SE/SS don’t matter and he thinks he has the SW because King of Boudillon (Tinubu) is dancing with him. Rochas is ridiculing himself being there, he will surely loose at the end of the day

    Buhari was a dictator who had suspended the National Assembly and
    had the power of life and death in his hands..unlike our present
    President, Great GEJ….under PTF Buhari committed serious crimes of financial
    recklessness with his cronies Afriprojects and unbridled self
    enrichment…money he was unable to manage, hence his current financial
    state.. 53 suitcases….state murder of drug trafficking suspects by way of
    retroactive laws…brother I could go on…and on…and on…

  • Oro Sunnunkun

    Dr. Doyin Okupe , why are you telling cock and bull story? What a big lie? The presidency is taking time to rescue the Chibok girls? Is your Oga trying to rescue their corpses or what?

I encourage the Ijaw poeple to do this all the time for their Ijaw candidate. It works best for Buhari whose campaign is on ETHICS, KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE and COMPETENCE. Let the Ijaw managers of President Jonathan go on with the clowning. It is the clowing of a sinking Ijaw candidate.

      You are talking as if the Govt, not Muslim terrorists are the ones holding the girls in captivity. Did you hear that some time ago Muslim terrorists held many Americans hostage in Iran for over a year? America with their 1st class world power were powerless to help their people. The Muslims eventually released the captives at their own timetable.

      Jonathan is doing a fantastic job. But remember the obstacles he is facing: sabotage, APC obduracy, man made violence to make the country ungovernable for him, and the mentality of born to rule feudalism.

    Even if the Chibok girls are found and rescued today, the GEJ haters must latch on to other straws to destroy him…I bet that furtively they rejoice that the Chibok thing happened and pray it is never resolved…For a show they politicize it and bedraggle GEJ on that score!!! It is interesting that GEJ’s traducers hardly advert their minds to the fact that the CHIBOK saga couldn’t have ever happened if APC’s Governor Shettima didn’t stage it for Boko Haram to take the credit…

    • Abdulkadir

      I like to think that you have sense enough to distinguish between what is right or wrong.

      If GEJ brings back the girls alive, or dead after an inspiring attempt, don’t worry about the criticism he will suffer, wallow in the blessings he will get from the parents of the children and from the country at large. Criticism is not a reason for failure to act.

      You claimed the reason the girls were kidnapped in the first place was because an APC governor was in place. Common sense should tell you that the governor does not control the security apparatus of the state, or the nation, and thus cannot command them not to act, or to look the other way when terrorists in their multitude were coming to kidnap hapless school children. More so, this state was under a-state-of-emergency and a curfew was in place. There was no report that the locals have violated the curfew. It means someone should have to answer the question as to how 272 girls were moved in the night with curfew in place and no security breach was reported. Someone is hiding something. This is especially so when the government refused to indict anyone at all, signifying that a job well done was done. Remember, the security spokes person claimed a recovery of almost all of the kidnapped children the next day.

      ONLY A FANATIC OF GEJ WILL SEE HIM AS A SAINT. THE MAN IS AS OLUSEGUN OBASANJO DESCRIBED; “Jonathan is lacking in broad vision, knowledge, confidence,
      understanding, concentration, capacity, sense of security, courage,
      moral and ethical principles, character and passion to move the nation

    If GEJ brings back the girls alive, or dead after an inspiring attempt, people should not worry about the criticism he will suffer, they should wallow in the blessings
    he will get from the parents of the children and from the country at
    large. Criticism is not a reason for failure to act.

    Somebody claimed
    the reason the girls were kidnapped in the first place was because an
    APC governor was in place. Common sense should tell him/her that the
    governor does not control the security apparatus of the state, or the
    nation, and thus cannot command them not to act, or to look the other
    way when terrorists in their multitude were coming to kidnap hapless
    school children. More so, this state was under a-state-of-emergency and a
    curfew was in place. There was no report that the locals have violated
    the curfew. It means someone should have to answer the question as to
    how 272 girls were moved in the night, with curfew in place and no
    security breach was reported. Someone is hiding something. This is
    especially so when the government refused to indict anyone at all,
    signifying that a job well done was done. Remember, the security spokes
    person claimed a recovery of almost all of the kidnapped children the
    next day.

    ONLY A FANATIC OF GEJ WILL SEE HIM AS A SAINT. THE MAN
    IS AS OLUSEGUN OBASANJO DESCRIBED; “Jonathan is lacking in broad vision,
    knowledge, confidence,
    understanding, concentration, capacity, sense of security, courage,
    moral and ethical principles, character and passion to move the nation
    forward on a fast trajectory. Although he might wish to do well, he does
    not know how nor does he have the capacity to”

    This statement about No time Limit for return of the girls show that PDP should never return back to Aso-rock in 2015.
    Am not sure if Mr Okupe feel the pains of Mothers and fathers and other relatives who are hope daily for the return of their Children.
    The whole international Community is completely frustrated with the PDP (People Destruction Party) inability to fight security and Corruption in Nigeria.

    May what befell the Chibok girls befall Doyin Okupe and his cohorts in the presidency’s children and may then wait for eternity to rescue them (amen).

    They would return them after the youngest might have turned 90 yrs of age or after all of them might have been brain-washed, used and killed off as suicide bombers.

    Fat Doyin, when President Buhari throws you in jail next year, there will be no time limit to your jail term. What goes around comes around .

      Abubakar tundermash, I guess you call tell anybody off or abuse anybody with any foul language you like. You know they will publish everything you write. Ore mi, what did you do? Is it because you are a card carrying Mohammedan APC chieftain? How much is it costing you?
