PDP slams APC for blaming Jonathan over Chibok girls' rescue

PDP says it was unfair of APC to accuse Jonathan of refusing help to rescue abducted Chibok girls.

In a brief statement posted to the opposition party's official Twitter handle, it accused the APC-led government of succeeding only in blaming past PDP governments for everything wrong and doing nothing more.

It tweeted:

The party's reaction followed the denial of the British government that at no time did Jonathan reject any offer from the country to help rescue the abducted girls.

The British high commission in Abuja responded to the allegations on Tuesday, March 7, describing the report as false.

Mathew Rycroft, who is the British ambassador, said he was briefed on the matter and the allegations were not true.

The British High Commissioner briefed me on that today (Monday) and said that the allegations are not true.”

Recall that UK media outlet The Observer claimed in a report that the British Armed Forces had reportedly offered to rescue the girls and had conducted air reconnaissance in a mission named Operation Turus over the region where the girls were believed to have been moved to, but Jonathan was said to have refused their help.

Jonathan had also denied the reports.
