After two years of the abduction of 200 female students from a boarding school in Chibok, Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Wednesday declared that no student was abducted by Boko Haram from Chibok.
Fayose, while declaring open a two day workshop on ‘political Aspirants Capacity Enhancement’ in Ekiti state, made adding that the news of the girls been abducted back in 2014 was a way of destroying Goodluck Jonathan’s administration ahead of the 2015 elections.

The Ekiti state governor said:
Today, many opposition leaders are underground. I don’t think any of these girls is missing; it is a political strategy. Who is fooling who? If you wanted to use it to remove some people, you have succeeded already.
I don’t know if there are missing girls but no indication has shown that. It is a political strategy, because I don’t think any girl is missing. If they are missing, let them find them.
Fayose further slammed the Bringbackourgirls campaigners, insisting that most of them are using the medium to seek political appointments.
He added that since President Buhari came into power, human rights groups have been silent which is not good.
I’m concerned about the activities of human rights groups. Today the government of the day is obeying court order of their choice, while human rights are not respected.
We must talk about government providing cover for criminals. You are now using that person to harass innocent person. You will never have peace when you hide justice.
Police came into town yesterday (Tuesday) to arrest political opponents. If you like, demonise me, I will demonise you. I don’t need the police and the SSS (Department of State Services) to walk in my state. It is when you are not popular that you walk with police.
Any government that rises against me, that government will come down. I’m Peter the rock. By engaging me, you make me more popular and relevant and then court sympathy. I’m one person that is going places. That is why all these challenges are against me.
