Nigeria has failed the Chibok girls - Pastor Bakare

11 April 2016, 06:40

Abuja - Pastor Tunde Bakare has made startling criticisms against the Federal Government, saying that too little has been done in the bid to save over 200 girls who were abducted from Chibok, Naij has reported.

Speaking during a special sit-out of #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG), the senior Pastor of the Latter Rain Gospel Assembly lambasted the country for having "failed these children".

“Rather than rise to the occasion as stakeholders and custodians of the security and welfare of the citizens of this nation, political parties and politicians have paid lip service, using our pain and plight of our daughters to score cheap political points,” he said.

In addition, Bakare claimed that the girls would have been saved if they were the children of politicians and renowned religious leaders.

“We believe that they are still alive, at least no evidence, satellite evidence that they are in a mass grave. We believe they are alive. It remains a scar on the soul of this nation until these girls are brought back,” the impassioned Pastor stated.
