Oby rejects FG's invitation, demands apology for 'slanderous publication

Posted by FactNews | 7 years ago | 2,540 times



Former minister of Education and convener of #BringBackOurGirls, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili has rejected invitation by the federal government for a "guided tour" to sambisa forest, citing a slanderous publication sponsored by the chief of Army staff, Tukur Buratai less than 48hrs before the invitation.


The federal government through the office of the minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had requested the group to join in a guided tour to sambisa forest following its unwavering commitment to the freedom of the girls who remained in captivity.


According to Lai Mohammed, the trip is being planned by the military and would have the ministers of Defence and information as well as the chief of Army staff in the team.


In a reply letter to the Federal government, the group alleged that News Agency of Nigeria in its publication, reported that " During a visit to the Army headquarter by a certain group which was received by the chief of Army staff, our movement was attacked for engaging in social advocacy terrorism."


The group therefore demands an apology from the COAS for endorsing such publication against the movement. It further proposed a pre-tour meeting to discuss pertinent issues which will help inform its decision on whether to accept the invite.
