Abuja - People from Chibok community resident in Abuja and members of the #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG), movement on Monday said they regretted voting for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 presidential election, Premium Times reports.
They expressed their regrets on in Abuja at a protest rally over the inability of the government to take measures to rescue the over 200 school girls kidnapped by the terrorist group, Boko Haram, in their school in Chibok, Borno State, in 2014.
The BBOG group said it was embarking on a fresh 14-day campaign to re-energize the clamour for the rescue of the girls.
Speaking during the protest on Monday, the chairman of the Chibok Community, Hosea Tsambido said members of the Community and BBOG voted massively for Buhari as against his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, who they voted for in 2011.
The protesters were, however, barred from entering Presidential Villa in Abuja according to News24.
They were barred from accessing the Villa by a full complement of security operatives drawn from the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) as well as the Department of State Services (DSS)
