The Labour Party have said that the Chibok Girls scandal were used by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to dent the image of erstwhile adminstration of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
The party stressed that the girls weren’t kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents, as widely believed.
In a statement issued by its national chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalami, LP said the ruling party should expect the wrath of God for deceiving Nigerians and manipulating the parents of the Chibok girls.
Stressing that the government should not claim credit “for what they have packaged, pre-arranged and now executing”, he stated that the current government has worsened the suffering of Nigerians.
Abdulsalami went on to state that if President Muhammadu Buhari does not leave office, nothing good should be expected from his administration.
“The government should expect the wrath of God for deceiving Nigerians and manipulating the parents of the Chibok girls. The release of the Chibok girls is a fluke and an ordinary abracadabra. If by this time, they claimed to have captured Sambisa forest, from which other forest will they say they have brought these girls.
“I think Nigerians need to be told the truth by our leaders, if they want sympathy from Almighty God, what happened to the Chibok girls. By the time we get to May 29 next year (2018), they will now release all the remaining girls to say they have fought the war, they have won the war.
“But the fact of the matter, as I have been saying before, during and after the campaign for the 2015 general elections, is that these Chibok girls were not kidnapped by any Boko Haram. They were prepared and arranged to destroy the image and administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“The present government has worsened the suffering of Nigerians. We have suffered enough, and if Buhari doesn’t leave office, Nigerians should expect worse repercussions from the government,” the statement read in part.
Abdulsalami said that if the APC lacks the capacity to lead, the party should step aside and let a responsible government take over.
His words, “The APC should step aside and let a responsible government take over the administration of Nigeria. You can’t talk of the government without bringing in APC. Buhari came on the platform of change, using deceit in all its programmes.”
