Shameful! FG Can not Account For Missing Chibok School Girls – Prof Soyinka
Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka has described the inability of the federal government to give account of the over 200 missing Chibok girls abducted by Islamist sect, Boko Haram, as a shame.
Soyinkas reaction to the federal governments shortcoming was expressed after a mega-school was named after him in Osun state by Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

He also said the school was an an emphatic rejection of what Boko Haram insurgents preach.
It is a shame that the nation cannot account for over 200 girls in Chibok. I sympathise with the religious policy of governments in school; children must not be brought up feeling that religion inhibits knowledge.
In schools, we need not distinguish our children, the fatalistic religious holiness and the holier-than-thou attitude must be reduced among our pupils.
Meanwhile Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state has asked Nigerians to plead with Soyinka not to resign as the chairman of the Centre for Black Culture and International Understanding (CBCIU).
