Abducted Chibok Girls: Mild Drama as Confab Delegate Embarks on Solo Protest

Abducted Chibok Girls: Mild Drama as Confab Delegate Embarks on Solo Protest


A mild drama ensued at the ongoing National Conference on Monday, as a delegate, Alhaji Buba Galadima, threw the delegates into bewilderment by a solo and mute protest over the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State.

Galadima, who is a member of the confab committee on devolution of power, refused to speak during the protest seen by many delegates as “comic relief.”

He walked out at a time the committee was in a stormy session over the derivation principle and resource control carrying a placard with inscription: “#Bring Back Our Daughters: President Jonathan, Stop Shifting the Blame, The Buck Stops On Your Desk.”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain and former national secretary of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) was visibly seeking attention of the media but refused to utter words.

Galadima has been a staunch critic of President Goodluck Jonathan and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)over what he has consistently described as their misrule of the country since 1999.

He was quoted in some national dailies as labelling the president as a tribal jingoists, just as he accused him (president) of sitting and administering the disintegration of the country.

“President Jonathan is sitting and superintending the disintegration of Nigeria when he was voted for as president by Nigerians to lead them,” he had said.

The politician, who was not given attention by mediamen during his 10-minute action, even after attempting to draw journalist covering some committees’ sittings out, rejoined the members of his committee after walking round the Studies Department of the National Judicial Institute, venue of the his committee’s meeting.
