Press statement from representatives of parents of
Chibok girls/survivors regarding the cancelled
meeting between them and president Jonathan
yesterday July 15th. Find it below…

We the members of the Kibaku (Chibok) Community
and representatives of the 12 fathers and 5 escaped
girls who were hosted by Malala during her visit to
Nigeria hereby speak on their behalf to offer to
Nigerians the facts as they are and to put the records
straight and correct the erroneous impression making
rounds in the media on the botched meeting with the
President: Continue… #Bringbackourgirls group also
released a statement regarding this. Continue…

1. The logistics and meeting between the twelve (12)
fathers and five (5) girls and Malala was facilitated by
the Abuja Chibok Community and the Citizens
platform of BringBackOurGirls with our consent and
on TRUST considering their sustained and focused
advocacy to Bring Back our daughters.

2. These parents and escaped girls did not come to
Abuja at the instance of government or its
representatives for a meeting with Mr. President but
on the full understanding that they were coming to
meet with Malala; an advocate of girl child education
and most importantly one who has suffered a similar
fate as their daughters’.

3. That in the course of the interactions with Malala,
NEITHER the parents nor the escaped girls asked for a
meeting with the President or any government
functionary, rather the narrative back home was to
persistently ask why the President has not visited
them in Chibok since the abduction.

4. It is obvious that their numbers of 12 fathers and 5
girls is about 2% of the parents of the 219 abducted
girls still with their abductors and the 57 girls that
escaped. Therefore, these parents DECIDED on their
own accord to review the announced visit, which they
FIRST heard of like every other person during Malala
speech in Hilton.

5. That consequent to their decision to revert to other
family members in order to incorporate every
stakeholder on the matter as well as avoid discord
and suspicion on a change of plans from the original
mission to Abuja, they reached out to the Malala team
and through them to the Presidency; to request for a
new date for an expanded and more representative
meeting that has a legitimate mandate to meet with
the President.

6. That their request is also in recognition of the huge
opportunity of a meeting with the President for the
first time and after over 90 days of the tragic
abduction of their daughters, and therefore required
better consultations, structure and formality as
against an instant advocacy request.

7. That it is totally misleading, unjust and without
foundation to hold the Citizens’ platform
BringBackOurGirls responsible for the decision made
by the 12 parents and our community. We therefore
take full responsibility for our decision and welcome
the formal invitation by the Presidency as a follow up
to Malala’s visit which we received this morning.
Thank You.

Response to Malicious Falsehood on Chibok
Parents Visit to President Goodluck Jonathan
In the last 24hours, the #BringBackOurGirls Abuja
family has observed with consternation the escalation
of the pattern of the campaign of calumny by
Government officials on our Citizens movement
advocating for the rescue of the 219 school girls of
abducted from Chibok Girls Secondary School, 93 days
ago. The latest in this trend is emanating from the visit
facilitated for the 11 parents and five escaped girls
who were visiting Abuja to interact with girl-child
education advocate Malala Yousafzai.

During the public speech by Ms. Malala she declared
that she had received a promise by President
Jonathan to meet with the 11 parents and five girls.

The movement was not aware and neither was it part
of the discussion of the said visit to our President.

However, at the BBOG daily sit out, our movement
was informed by the Chairman, Abuja Chibok
community of the outcome of a meeting held with
officials of the Presidency in Malala’s suite
(immediately after her speech). He conveyed that they
were informed at that meeting of a the scheduling of
the visit to the President for the eleven parents and
five girls at 4.00pm on Tuesday 15th July 2014.

Although some members of the movement were
surprised at the sudden invitation to meet with the
President, our leadership concluded that session by
emphasizing that it was the absolute right of the
Chibok community to decide on the matter. It is
instructive to note that majority of those at the Unity
Fountain on that day were visiting from the Chibok
community and were mostly the ones who vehemently
expressed dismay at the information from the
Chairman. He then clarified on the manner the
invitation was conveyed to him and the parents at that
meeting and reassured his community that he would
schedule an emergency meeting to discuss the matter
further.

On Tuesday 15th July 2014, the leadership of our
movement were invited to a meeting by the Chibok
Chairman and the leadership of their development
association with the eleven parents in attendance. At
the meeting they conveyed to us their unanimous
decision to request for a rescheduling of the Malala
facilitated meeting with the President. They further
informed us of their intention to reach out to the
Malala team and officials of the Presidency to request
for an expanded meeting within a sufficient time
frame for necessary planning with the rest of their
community in Chibok.

We want to repeat for the avoidance of doubt that we
are not responsbile for the cancellation of the meeting
with the President by the 11 Parents and 5 escaped
girls from Chibok as been insinuated by some
Government officials
As a movement, we wish to seize this opportunity to
express our gratitude to Malala who helped amplify
the advocacy for concerted efforts towards the rescue
of our girls.

Meanwhile, it is pertinent to firmly state that since the
inception of our movement in April 2014, we have
remained steadfast and adopted all means and
channels of civil engagement in the advocacy of our
singular issue, which is #BringBackOurGirls NOW and
ALIVE
