FG not doing enough, says Ezekwesili

Former World Bank Vice President for Africa, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has said she is not convinced that the Federal Govern­ment is doing enough to bring back schoolgirls abducted by terrorists from a secondary school in Chibok, Borno State.

Ezekwesili, who spoke on the programme 'Face The Nation', broadcast on Rock­City 101.9 FM in Abeokuta, Ogun State, said the initial 24 hours after the adoption was very critical and since government drag-footed and wasted time, doubting if the abduction was real or not, the kidnappers settled down to re-strategise.

She said: 'I am not yet persuaded that our strategy is top range. We had meet­ings with the NSA's office, with the Chief of Defence Staff's office and there were many of the generals in at­tendance. Later, we met the delegation of the president. In all of these, I am not yet persuaded that we, as a coun­try, are asking the right ques­tions on what's going on. My greatest sadness is how there is a whole political context within which a scourge that threatens the existence of our country is being looked at. For me, that is shocking.'
