Abuja - Former Akwa Ibom Governor Godswill Akpabio lashed out at Dino Melaye and other leaders within the All Progressives Congress (APC) for allegedly cashing in on the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls.
According to Naij, the Senate Minority Leader claimed that the APC used the missing girls as a ploy to win the elections.
Akpabio has stated that the proof of his claims lies in the APC having gone quiet on the issue since winning the election.
“I wonder why those who led protests against the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan to rescue the girls have suddenly kept mum,” Senator Akpabio questioned.

Akpabio's allegations follow on from Senator Melaye's statements saying that the Federal Government cannot have claimed to have succeeded until the missing girls have been rescued.
“We cannot succeed as a government until those girls are released. Getting back the over 200 Chibok school girls into the society is important and a must for our security agencies,” he said.
Melaye was supported by various other senators who resolved that the National Security Adviser (NSA), along with all service chiefs, should be invited to brief the Senate on their efforts to recover the girls.
