80-Days After Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala admits Bad Communication on Chibok Girls



Earlier today, Nigeria’s Coordinating Minister for the Economy Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in London spoke to CNN‘s Christiane Amanpour on the Federal Government’s Safe Schools Initiative, as well as the missing Chibok girls abducted by the Islamist militant Boko Haram.
When Christiane asked if there was one criticism from the press and masses about the school girls that was right, Okonjo-Iweala who was named as the most powerful woman in Nigeria by Forbes, says they didn’t communicate well enough.
“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 can.”
“The president has two daughters,” she said. “These children are our children. But we did not communicate that well.”
“I don’t know how that happened. The issue now is not whether we are criticized or not criticized unfairly. I think we should forget about all that.”
