The All Progressives Congress, APC says there is need for the Federal Government to look into the ceasefire deal reached with the dreaded Islamic-sect, Boko Haram on 17 October; this is contained in a statement issued Sunday by its National Publicity Secretar, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
The party said Nigerians would like to know how the FG got swindled by an impostor, who the major players were and what the government planned to do to address what had now become a monumental national and international embarrassment.
According to the APC “President Jonathan owes Nigerians an explanation on what has now turned to be an unprecedented global faux pas. Engaging in cheap damage control by insisting on the genuineness of the deal will only amount to taking Nigerians for a ride.’’
The party also berated the FG for giving false hopes to parents of the kidnapped Chibok school girls, who have remained in the den of the dreaded sect despite the ceasefire agreement.
‘’Now the parents and indeed all Nigerians have been victimized for the umpteenth time by the same government that has failed in its main reason for existence, which is the security and welfare of the citizenry, the highest level of the military and supported by the political authority on Oct. 17th. Now that it has been described as a fluke, there is every indication that the JonathanAdministration was swindled by someone masquerading as a Boko Haram negotiator, while the Administration itself went ahead to fool Nigerians as well as the international community. Whatever happens, the sole responsibility falls on the Administration,’’ said Mohammed.
