Jonathan called me 19 days after Chibok girls’ abduction -Shettima

Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State on Monday said former President Goodluck Jonathan did not call him until after 19 days after the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, in 2014.

Speaking while receiving former President Olusegun Obasanjo at the Government House, Maiduguri,Shettima said he believed Obasanjo would have handled the issue of the kidnapping differently were he to be the nation’s President at the time.He said

He stated, “In our own case, Your Excellency, after the Chibok abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in April, 2014, it took 19 days for me to receive a call from the Presidency. I brought this mainly to show the difference, because we will only appreciate scenarios when we make comparisons.”
