Erstwhile President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday doubted the ability of the President Muhammadu Buhari?s Federal Government to rescue the abducted Chibok girls alive.

Speaking at an event organized by the Staff Club of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State,
Obasanjo affirmed that anyone saying the girls would return was simply lying.

promises by the current administration that it would rescue the abducted Chobok girls alive.

Obasanjo blamed the immediate past
President, Goodluck Jonathan for trivialising the distress call to

He stated that the failure of the Peoples
Democratic Party in the 2015 presidential election is a blessing to

?We tried, but with Jonathan, it was best
that PDP should fail to save Nigeria,? Obasanjo said.

Obasanjo observed that the Jonathan?s
administration trivalised issues of importance as politics, particularly that of Boko Haram.
