The trip is meant to search for the abducted Chibok schoolgirls in the once dreaded forest, then occupied by Boko Haram insurgents.
Ezekwesili, in an e-mail to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed at 8.20pm on Sunday indicated the interest of her group to join the search for the missing girls in Sambisa forest by giving another conditional acceptance which the government met.
Here is the correspondence between Ezekwesili and Alhaji Mohammed on the planned guided tour of Sambisa forest tomorrow, sent by Segun Adeyemi, an aide of the minister.
”At 8.20 PM on Sunday Evening, #BBOG contacted the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, to indicate its conditional acceptance of the offer to travel with the team heading for the NE to witness first-hand the military’s ongoing search for the Chibok Girls.
This came as a surprise, considering that the #BBOG had earlier given impractical conditions for joining the trip, and the FG had rejected those conditions
But the FG still responded, meeting all the fresh conditions stipulated by the #BBOG in the conditional acceptance letter
Read below, the details of the latest communication between the FG and the #BBOG:
