Obasanjo: Boko Haram incubated over time

Buhari scores himself on anti-graft fight security of Nigerians

"And although I do not know how long it took to incubate, I am sure if the level of education in the North-East matched the level of education in the South-West, there wouldn't have been Boko Haram".

In Nigeria, abduction of the girl child has become a common trend, the recent being the kidnap of 110 female students from Government Technical Girls College, Dapchi in Yobe State on February 19, 4 years after over 200 girls were abducted in Chibok, Borno State.

While flagging off a campaign tagged "Leave our girls alone", She described the abduction of the school girls as an evil on women.

She stressed that the girls' abduction was a stunt by the sect to fault the claims of the Nigerian Army that it has completely defeated them.

They are doing all that and we should now keep quiet and allow them to go on? If everybody now keeps quiet, what will be the result?

She said sexual harassment, violence and discrimination against women have captured public discourse, propelled by a rising determination for change, which she noted were instrumental to the declaration by the Wife of the President on the harmful practices affecting women and girls in Nigeria. "This is because there are many good stories happening around women", she said.

She said: "Habib, from what I heard, is so angry about the way his father was killed and he is also somebody that one can talk to because he has a soft heart like his father".
