The national chapter of the Medical and Health Workers Union has decried the inability of security forces in taking decisive steps to rescue the 276 school girls taken hostage by the Boko Haram sect three weeks ago at Government Girls College Chibok, Borno State.
Speaking to newsmen in Jos, Plateau state through its national chairperson Women Commission, Comrade Sylvia Dagu, the union condemned in strong terms the seeming ineptitude of security forces in securing freedom for the abducted girls even when the emergency rule imposed on the state is still in force.
She stated that inaction by the government amounts to severe abdication of responsibility since governments anywhere in the world exist primarily to safeguard lives and property and guarantee the welfare of its citizens, which the Nigerian Constitution also upholds.
Mrs. Dagu appealed to President Dr.Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to expedite action to rescue the abducted girls who are in gruesome and horrendous anguish.
“The excruciating pain and trauma that parents of the abducted girls are going through can better be imagined than experienced,” she said. She said the President must act now to restore dignity and worth to human lives that are perishing daily on the alter of insurgency in the country.
