Politics Okonjo-Iweala Admits Poor Communication on Missing Schoolgirls -This Day



The Nigerian government did not adequately communicate with the public on the over 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram last April, the Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala admitted to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour yesterday.

“We did not communicate that well and when there is gap, there is possibility that it can cause a problem. But this is a very delicate situation with an unpredictable group. And I think that maybe this is one of the areas where we have not been able to communicate as well as we ought,” she said.

“The president has two daughters,” she added. “These children are our children. But we did not communicate that well.” However, critics say that far from just releasing bad information, the government released demonstrably false information.
