The activist who missed death by the whiskers under the late General Sani Abacha’s dictatorship for his outspokenness against the government, said the GEJ administration’s response to the Chibok girls case was a colossal failure.


In an interview, Ogebe stressed that what the immediate past regime did regarding the abducted girls was an unmitigated disaster.

He noted that instead of addressing the issues at hand, Jonathan’s cabinet raised conspiracy theories, attacked the parents of the abducted girls, claiming that the opposition were out to rubbish them.

According to the rights lawyer, the Jonathan administration turned the event into a publicity stunt.

He said Jonathan and his team went on to hire PR companies at millions of dollars to launder their image.

According to Ogebe, more money has been spent by government fighting the campaign than it was used in assisting the cause of the girls.


He emphatically stressed that last year alone, records published in the US have it that the Nigerian government spent over $4, 000, 000 (4 million dollars) on lobbying.
