Kema Chikwe, the National Woman Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has refuted a SaharaReporters story that she expressed doubt about the abduction of the Chibok girls. In a press statement released today, she said:
“My speech at the occasion of PDP Women’s Prayer on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 for the release of the Chibok kidnapped school girls and the Nyanya bomb blast victims was straight-forward and the interpretation of Sahara Reporters does not in anyway reflect my intentions,” she saidMrs. Chikwe noted that the prayer event where she supposedly doubted if the girls were really abducted was specifically organized to pray for the release of the girls, and wondered why she would have prayed for their release if she doubted their abduction.
