A statement by the campaign media and publicity director Malam Garba Shehu pointed out that it was getting to almost a year since the girls went missing, and that all Nigerians have had since then was nothing but failed promises and dashed hopes.
"The government began by claiming that some of the girls were rescued, to doubting that the girls were missing, to declaring that they had been sighted in Sambisa Forest, to alleging that a ceasefire and hostage release agreement had been reached with Boko Haram," the campaign spokesperson said.
"It has been one long, roller-coaster emotional ride for the parents and families of the girls and Nigerians," he said.
The APC campaign also asked President Jonathan to take a moment and imagine that it was one of his own children who had been kidnapped and missing for almost a year.
"No amount of money disbursements or promises or emissaries would assuage the pain and extinguish the torment," Shehu said.
"All that those poor parents need at this time is to have their children back with them," the statement said.
The campaign also regretted the initial two-week delay which saw President Jonathan saying absolutely nothing immediately after the girls were kidnapped.
"Valuable time was lost then. We cannot afford to still be dilly dallying," Shehu said.
"This is one of those times when action is supposed to speak louder than words," he said.
