AS PRESIDENT, I WOULD HAVE VISITED CHIBOK-DELE MOMODU

NCP Presidential candidate in the last elections, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan has no excuse for not visiting Chibok to assess the situation and give a shoulder of support to the distressed parents of the missing girls.
Speaking as a guest on Channels TV’s Political Today programme, Chief Momodu who is the Publisher of Ovation Magazine said that by not visiting Chibok, President was sending a wring signal that he those not care and that he cherishes his life more than those of those Nigerians who live there.
“Those who are advising the President not to visit Chibok are not his friends, if I was the President, I would have visited the place long ago. It will be a signal and an assurance to Nigerians that I am with them and also to rally the troops against this menace to our society.
Also the action would have gone a long way to encourage the families whose daughters have been taken away that they have not been abandoned.
He called for Nigerians of all faiths, all political leanings and ethnic group to rally round the government and it agencies to fight the terrorists to a standstill.
He stated that he agrees with the views of activist, Shehu Sani that government should not shut out the offer of negotiation offered by the terrorist. “The government should not take any card off the table, all options should be open if it will help to bring back those girls safe and sound” Momodu stated
Why praising the Nigerian Army, he said that it was obvious that the security agencies have lost the upper hand to the Boko Haram insurgents because of their superior fire power, he therefore called on government to motivate and equip the military properly.
He also knocked the government’s communication strategy of always prepared to talk to foreign media as against local media organisations, he said this is not in the best interest of the country.  He advised the government to engage the people more and act more than it talks.
