The Federal Government on Tuesday said former President Olusegun Obasanjo is entitled to any opinion or comment he made regarding the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.
The FG said it will remain focus, undistracted and committed to the safe return of the girls to their parents.
It would be recalled that the ex-president last week said many of the abducted schoolgirls may never be reunited with their families.
He told The Hausa service of the British Broadcasting Corporation that in the future, the world will still be hearing of the abducted girls because some of them may give birth to children belonging to members of the Boko Haram sect., who kidnapped them
But the coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri, while speaking with journalists in Abuja, Tuesday, said, “Obasanjo is a respected man and a former Nigerian president who is entitled to his opinion, comments and views”.
“The Government of Nigeria will remain undistracted, focused and committed to rescuing the girls alive”, he stated.
