Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka has described the Federal Government’s failure to rescue the missing Chibok girls as shameful.
The learned Prof said this yesterday while speaking at the inauguration of the N750 million Wole Soyinka Government High School in Ejigbo, Osun State, he lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari and his team over the non-rescue of 219 Chibok schoolgirls, almost six months since Buhari’s inauguration.
“It is a shame that the nation cannot account for over 200 girls in Chibok. I sympathise with the religious policy of governments in school; children must not be brought up feeling that religion inhibits knowledge.
“In schools, we need not distinguish our children, the fatalistic religious holiness and the holier-than-thou attitude must be reduced among our pupils, ” he said.
But wait o, how far with the Chibok girls? Nothing seems to be happening as per bringing them back. Even social media campaigns have died down. Sad.
