[NIGERIA] $9.3m Arms Scandal: We Will Not Sue Oritsejafor

Following the controversy sorrounding the seized $9.3m found in a private jet belonging to the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor in far away Africa, members of the #BringBackOurGirls advocacy group have dismissed reports of plans to sue the embattled president of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.

The BBOG said that like every Nigerian, the group would require a thorough probe by the Government of the $9.3million scandal for every Nigerian to see.

They also said several strange statements have been attributed to the advocacy by people who do not represent the advocacy.

 BBOG said it is a well-organised advocacy with well-respected leaders, who represent them.
The group added that any statement that is not made by one of the representatives should not be associated with the advocacy.

A statement by the BBOG media spokesperson Abuja, Rotimi Olawale, said: “We have in recent times observed a ratchet of very strange statements being attributed to our Movement, the #Bringbackourgirls campaign for our 219 abducted Chibok girls.

Recent news reports now quote anonymous individuals.
Those statements do not represent the position of our Movement.

“We are a well-organised citizens movement with appropriate leadership and official spokespersons who are mandated according to our public communication strategy to speak on behalf of our Movement.

“Therefore, any public statements not made by our leadership or officially designated spokespersons of our Movement should be discountenanced and ignored by the public because they do not represent the position of #BringBackOurGirls. Statements made by members not designated in their personal capacity cannot and should never be attributed to our Movement.

“For the avoidance of doubt, those designated to speak on behalf of the Movement at all times are the Co- Conveners of #BringBackOurGirls – Abuja Family— Hadiza Bala Usman, Oby Ezekwesili, Maryam Uwais, Saudatu Madhi.

All members of our strategic team also speak on behalf of BBOG- Abuja Family, namely Jibrin Ibrahim, Bukky Shonibare, Florence Uzor, Rotimi Olawale, Aisha Yesufu, Maureen kabrik, Mariam Ikunaiye, Dauda Iliya and Tunji Olanrewaju

“From time to time, our Movement can officially designate specific members to represent us and speak on our behalf on issues touching on our advocacy. In such instances, whoever that individual may be will represent our position and so attribution to #BringBackOurGirls will be appropriate and in order.”
