    CNN Correspondent, Isha Sesay counters Nigerian President, says Abduction of 110 Schoolgirls A "National Disgrace"

    CNN anchor and correspondent, Isha Sesay, has countered President Muhammad Buhari's description of the abduction of 110 students from a school in Yobe State as "national disaster" ; for her, it is a "national disgrace".

    Last Monday, in a raid akin to the attack that led to the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok on 14 April 2014, Nigeria’s most dreaded terrorist group stormed Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi in Yobe State and made away with 110 students.

    President Muhammadu Buhari had described the incident as a “national disaster” and promised that his government would rescue the girls from captivity.

    But, in series of tweets, Isha Sesay disagrees with the president and argues that his description is an understatement and “doesn’t cut it” because it shifts blame and responsibility from the government

    She said, “#Nigeria’s President #Buhari calls abduction of #DapchiGirls “a national disaster.” That’s an understatement – it’s a national disgrace. More girls taken – again?? #Yobe #ChibokGirls.

    “I want to live in a world where the lives of the #DapchiGirls are held to be just as important as those of kids in other places. A world where everyone is talking about schoolgirls being stolen by terrorists. Is that too much to ask? #Nigeria #Yobe #ChibokGirls.”

    She added, Nope! “National disaster” doesn’t cut it. I’m taking “national disgrace” which implies blame and responsibility. #DapchiGirls #Yobe #Nigeria #Buhari.
