Tweeps Slam Ex-MPA Boss, Hadiza Bala-Usman Over Tweet On Chibok Girls

Former NPA Managing Director Hadiza Bala-Usman

Former Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala-Usman was the recipient of a rash of criticisms for her tweet lamenting the high level of insecurity in Nigeria.

Hadiza tweeted in the context of the commemoration of eight year anniversary of the abduction of Chibok school girls. The school girls were abducted in Borno State by Boko Haram terrorists.

“It is eight years today since 276 girls were abducted in Chibok Secondary School, 109 still remain in captivity. Many more girls, boys and indeed citizens of all ages have been abducted from schools, communities and while enroute journeys,” she tweeted.

The former NPA chief was suspended in May 2021 over the allegation of failure to remit the N165 billion operating surplus to the coffers of the federal government. Though she was later cleared of the allegations, President Buhari, however, did not reinstate her to office.

In recent times, several states in the country, including Kaduna, Plateau, Zamfara, Benue and others, have witnessed large number of terrorist attacks.

The volatile security situation made northern elders demand the immediate resignation of President Buhari.

Usman, a co-coordinator of the #BringBackOurGirls movement, which came to life on the heels of the Chibok abductions was very active in the movement’s activities until she was appointed the managing director of the NPA.

She had thereafter gone silent on issues around activism, or matters critical of the government.

She was, however, recently shown the way out of the appointment after a fallout with the minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

Her new posture has however sparked criticisms, with some Nigerians labeling her as a ‘shameless hypocrite’ and fresh attention seeker for not speaking out while she was in office as NPA head honcho.

Chibok! The bring back campaign gave your popularity and negotiation power to NPA then it became abandoned project. Aside chibok, zamfara, kaduna etc, then the recent train attack. People are still in captivity. Chibok is special because it was a propaganda machinery for APC.

If you don’t Gerrit forgerit, this is methodology for shopping for a post-2023 appointment. It worked before, and we are hoping it will work again, hence the tweet
