Home » » Nigeria abducted schoolgirls latest: President Goodluck Jonathan cancels Chibok trip
Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has called off a visit the town where more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted, officials say. Instead of stepping up he's stepping down. Bad move, bad advisers, bad message to send to victim families and frustrated Nigerians.
President Goodluck Jonathan was scheduled to visit Chibok, in the north-east, on his way to a conference in France and as of today, called off for security reasons, the officials said. The state of emergency in the north-east states of Yobe, Borno and Adamawa had been extended on Thursday for another six months.
His cancellation has called on more criticism and claims he's only ruling over the south.
President Jonathan has been criticised for not visiting the town - more than a month after the girls were seized. What a relief and hope, the visit would have been to the troubled families and region. Nothing was seen of the girls for almost a month after they were taken from Chibok.
President Jonathan had requested a six-month extension, calling the security situation in the region "daunting" and saying he was concerned by the mounting loss of life among civilians.
