The Federal Government of Nigeria has condemned comments made by the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the PDP over the recent rescue of some girls kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists years ago.

“The release of the terrorists is a setback for the War on insurgency. Their release is tantamount to releasing them to resume their war against society,” Dayo Adeyeye, spokesperson of the Makarfi faction had said.

Reacting, Nigeria's Information Minister, Lai Mohammed, in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Segun Adeyemi, said it was insensitive for any individual or organisation to spoil the joy that heralded the release of the girls because of politics.

“It is clear that the kind of disdain for human life which the PDP exhibited in its incautious statement is the same reason the poor girls were kidnapped in the first instance.

“It is also this attitude the then PDP-controlled Federal Government took that seemed an eternity before even acknowledging the abduction, thus losing critical time for their rescue.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari had stated that the defeat of Boko Haram would not be complete without the rescue of the Chibok girls.

“If that includes swapping some Boko Haram elements for the girls, so what? Will the PDP rather have the girls stay in perpetual captivity, just to prove a ludicrous point?

“Didn’t superpower United States engage in negotiations with the Taliban that led to the exchange of five Taliban fighters for US Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl in 2014?

“Didn’t Israel release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for one Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit in 2011?

“A lot of factors come into play when a nation has to decide whether or not to engage in prisoner/hostage swap.

“None, however, trounces the sanctity attached to human life and the consideration for the pains of the loved ones of those involved,’’ he said.
