#BringBackOurGirls Protests are a Distraction to Government – Mike Omeri




Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mike Omeri, reportedly stated that the activities of #BringBackOurGirls protesters has become a distraction to the government.

Omeri made this statement during a press conference in Abuja yesterday, Daily Newswatch reports.

He reportedly accused the protesters of politicizing the issue, and stated that “It is necessary to caution those involved in daily protests that there is a clear difference between credible civil agitation and subversive preoccupations.”

Omeri is also said to have mentioned that the protests have become more of a distraction to the government  and must be stopped.

“While democracy encourages peaceful and meaningful protests, such protesters especially as it relates to the Chibok incident should focus on the broader and all-encompassing concerns on lives being lost daily since terrorist actions broke out in the northeast,” he said.

    Idiot! If it were one of your daughters that had been kidnapped- possibly being raped, beaten and subjected to incredible trauma on a daily basis; would you call protesting about it a distraction. Hiss!
    We have a bunch of callous and evil people in our government. Nigerians should vote wisely in the coming elections

    What a twat. What an absolute and completely irredeemable twat. Hang on a moment, whilst Boko Haram discover the location of your own children’s school and attack it. And then cart the daughters you bore away into a forest to commit all kinds of attrocities upon them.

    Hold your foolish tongue until then so that we can find out what tune you’ll be singing when it happens to you.

      But Mz S.A. these people will probably send their kids out of the country to school, the same way they rush out of the country for medical intervention.

      They have no faith in the same system they helped to make rotten. I’m just so incensed ehn, I cannot even begin to type out the words forming in my head now.

    My sentiments preciesly Omo, what an ignorant statement to make. Peoples children are missing and are possibly being abused but protests should stop because ” its a distraction to the government” What rubbish!

    What a f****d up idiot! No you don’t tell people what they should be protesting on. How dare you try to belittle the protesters. This is precisely why protesting should happen, to put pressure on our government. They are so used to getting away with everything and this current protest just frustrates them that they can’t continue to enjoy their millions in peace. You still have no answers, peoples lives have been affected at levels unimaginable what answers do you have for them, what clues? Although not completely different the fighting in the northeast is a continual problem and that deserves its own protest but we are currently talking about the girls, what of them?

    Why do we allow foolish human beings like Mike Omeri speaking for the general public to hear? Mike Omeri is a definition of what Nigeria government does not need. He is an example of mistakes Nigeria made in government. That this foolish idiot doesn’t know what his job is, is a clear sign that is time for him to get down out of government and go.
