Chibok community leader thanks Jonathan for sending emissary

The missing Chibok schoolgirls held captive by Boko Haram

A community leader in Chibok, Borno State, on Sunday lauded President Goodluck Jonathan for sending the Minister of State for Power, Mohammed Wakil, to reassure them of safe return of the abducted students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok.

Mr. Wakil last week held a meeting with members of the community in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on the orders of President Jonathan.

A spokesperson of the community, Hauwa Chibok, made the commendation in a statement in Maiduguri.
“I, on behalf of Chibok women, write to thank President Goodluck Jonathan for sending one of his ministers, Mohammed Wakil, to sympathise with us and reassure us over our missing daughters.

“Wakil briefed us on the security efforts being made to rescue the girls and we appreciate it.
“We are from Chibok, not Damboa, and the minister met us at about 10 p.m. on Thursday morning in Maiduguri.

“He was with us for two hours. We prayed together for our daughters and we prayed for the military.
“On behalf of our people, we convey our appreciation for the visit.

“We prayed God to bless the efforts of our military,” she said.

    APC lying machine would soon come to town to spread the usual falsehood for which they are holding an unbeaten world record that this person is not from chibok and/or she was paid to make the statement

    • PROF

      Just wait for the abuse from the apc e-monkies

    • Maryam Audu

      We all know what they are capable of doing…but they can only bark like hungry dogs but they just bunch of losers.

    GEJ is an intelligent leader who threads with care. He always ensures there is a balance by weighing his options. This is a kind of leader Nigeria need…Let us vote for continuity, vote GEJ. #GEJ4NAIJA

    A mentally and physically fit President like Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is what this Country requires, not a 73 year old, frail looking President. GEJ till 2019… GEJ all the way… #GEJ4NIJA

  • Maryam Audu

    His character depicts the one whom encourages peace and unity amongst his people. Jonathan has displayed the highest level of sportsmanship and how much he cares for the masses. GEJ is a man of great wisdom! he has the ability of serving this country!#GEJ4NAIJA

    The best solution to peace and coexistence in the country is the re-election of Dr Goodluck Jonathan as the President in the coming election. This is a leader that can protect the lives and interest of the masses…#GEJ4NAIJA

      Maryam Audu and Mustapha Idris I believe both of you are not Borno State extraction. When late President Yar Adua was alive where was Boko Haram? When President Jonathan became Acting President where was Boko Haram? I believe it was non existence. He became President in 2011, then Boko Haram surfaced at our back yards. Has he ever visited Chibok? He was not convinced that the girls were kidnapped. What a shame to both of you. You want the people to continue with him for another four years? Do you believe the few currency given to both of you is worth the lives of these girls and those killed. WE BELIEVE CHANGE! YES WE CAN IN NIGERIA.

      • Maryam Audu

        Boko Haram has been existing since 2011, and i can tell you that they increased when Jonathan became the president because the northern leaders refuses to support him in fighting them.

  • MUSTAPHA IDRIS

    GEJ has been trying his best for the nation, just that the oppositions and saboteurs are too many. trying to pull him down at all course. Allah kiyaye. #GEJ4Naija

  • Wait s minute. What is the community thanking the government for? Are they thanking the government that the girl have not been or will never be found? Is the thank for those girls whose parents have died since the incident without opportunity to bid them farewell? Is the thank about the people of Chibok who were killed in Boko Haram’s subsequent raid on the community?
    Chibok is predominately Christian community which made it vulnerable to attack. A sensible government would have marked Chibok for more protection. Instead, the government deployed only 17 soldiers carrying rusty AK-47 who were quickly overpowered by Boko Haram and abducted 300+ girls under the watch of Jonathan as he was dancing in far away Kano. Now he’s playing politics over the lives of poor people of Chibok. Jonathan and his officials are nothing but demons in human form. It is better to have a wise tyrant as a leader than a sympathising dullard.

    Nawa o! Indeed..he who wears the shoe knows where it hurts most.
    It would appear the good people of chibok are very appreciative of the visit. Yet, the Vuvuzela of the ONE WEEK-ONE LIE Party whose name rhymes with ‘LIE’ had told his Angry-Peoples-Club members that Jona is just playing politics with the chibok issue! Meanwhile the move was welcomed by those in the thick of things!
    How many more blunders and serial gaffes will these tell-tales exhibit before d-day??
    Nawa o!

    • Musbau Hamzat

      My friend, Jonathan need to be tapped or shake before moving. If not APC that challenge him & the Election, he doesn’t send them.

  • Advocate

    gej, patience can not be bothered about chibok girls, one of the most defining events in this presidency, so instead they send a messenger. waow. we are very grateful

    There is no doubt that President Goodluck Jonathan mean well for this country. However there are forces that have vow not to see Nigeria move forward and that is where the problem lies. If you look back at the history of this country you will discover that at any time a sincere person is at the helm of affair of this nation, one forces or the other always play out to terminate it. Even the masses that is suppose to understand this better are clamoring for change they cannot even define. Have you ever settle down to ask yourself why all this power hunger, are all against President Goodluck Jonathan? President Jonathan has scored a moral victory against his opponents, as a role model for the younger generation to emulate as the new face of modern Nigeria. President Goodluck is the best President in Nigeria. Vote for Goodluck.#goodluck4president
