THE Nigerian government has finally thrown in the towel as the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, finally drops the bombshell why the Federal Government it could not secure more releases of the rest of the  Chibok secondary abducted from a secondary dormitory.
He stated this in an interview with Daily Sun newspapers published on February 2, 2017. He criticized the activities of the 'Bring Back Our Girls group which he said are becoming an irritating lot because the government has done exceeding well by carrying them along while in search of the girls.
Further in the interview, the minister gave reasons why it could not secure the release of other who are still in the custody of the terrorists and he gave the military a pat on the back for toiling night and day in search of the rest of them.
According to him, the government has worked so well that led to the release of the 21 girls and could not say why the others were not released. This, he blamed on the party the government has been negotiating with which probably felt the government has breached some of the agreements.
He said, ''The dividend of that was the release of those 21 girls and who knows we probably would have gotten more than that if not because the party we were negotiating with felt that we breached some of the agreements. That is why we cannot even tell you the stage we have gotten.
Below is an extract from the interview with Daily Sun newspapers:
Excerpt:
Towards the build up to the 2015 polls, the Bring Back Our Girls Group were your allies, but today you are referring to them as opposition, because you are in power. Some Nigerians believe this is not fair. What is your take?
Honestly, I think people are not being fair. The Bring Back Our Girls is an advocacy group and they are playing a very good role in reminding the government that this matter is still not resolved, which is good. However, we believe that it is  not fair on their part not to take a holistic picture of the situation and it is because  we wanted to give them information, we wanted to carry them along that I invited  them to Yola and from Yola, we were flown to Sambisa, both in the morning and  night. We went to the entire area to see what the Army and the Air Force do on a  daily basis in the search of the Chibok girls. 



We were together for more than 24  hours with them, we took briefings. At the end of that trip, they admitted that, yes,  the federal government, especially the military is professional in its conduct and that they are committed to finding and rescuing these girls. When we talk about  Sambisa, it is not Jabi Park, it is 60,000 square kilometers, which is 18 times the  size of Lagos State. But despite that, the military has been able to secure the entire  Sambisa forest today. When we came back they now issued a statement in which  they said they will not tolerate any delay nor will they tolerate any excuse from government of Nigeria. It was at that point that I said wait a minute. You can’t start talking about delay or excuses from government. These girls have been kidnapped  400 full days before we came in, if anybody dilly-dallies; it was the other administration, not us. Negotiations are very delicate, negotiations are not something you can invite somebody to come and join you.
You need to establish confidence building and trust. It took us a greater part of two years to be able to establish that trust and say look, these are the right people to talk to. The dividend of that was the release of those 21 girls and who knows we probably would have gotten more than that if not because the party we were negotiating with felt that we  breached some of the agreements. That is why we cannot even tell you the stage  we have gotten. There is the issue of national security in some of these  negotiations and that is why it is important for us to be careful in the way we go  about it.
So we believed that after what we did, we took them along, they saw what the  military is doing and we explained to them that negotiations is a different thing,  negotiation is ongoing and is a 24/7 job but is very complex. For instance, when  you are meeting these people, don’t forget this is not a conventional war;  sometimes when you meet them they give you a window of four or five days to get some things done which is virtually impossible. So what we are saying is that as an advocacy group, you must show some understanding especially when we have been transparent with you. That was why I said if you want to do advocacy, stick to it and if it is opposition, stick to it, otherwise you cannot come back two days later  and start issuing ultimatum. When you say go and bring back our girls, it is as if  we are keeping them in the Villa. If we knew where they are we would have  brought them back long time ago. Again, even in negotiation, what would be  paramount to your mind is the safety of those girls.
