In an new interview with Bloomberg TV aired on Saturday, former President Olusegun Obasanjo said President Jonathan didn't believe girls were really kidnapped..
“On the kidnapping or abduction, the President did not believe that those girls were abducted for almost 18 days.
If the President got the information within 12 hours of the act and he reacted immediately, I believe those girls would have been rescued within 24 hours, maximum, 48 hours.Don’t forget, they are almost 300 girls.
The logistics of moving them is something (delay the sect would have encountered). Unfortunately, the President had doubts;
‘Is this true? Is this a ploy by some people who don’t want me to be President again, who is doing this?’I think that was unfortunate aspect of the whole exercise or situation.”
