#BringBackOurGirls: The beginning and the end of a movement

#BringBackOurGirls: The beginning and the end of a movement

| On 13, Jan 2015

The dawn of missing Chibok girls had the Presidency stating no girls were abducted.


The world rallied round and supported Nigeria as they canvassed for a safe return of over 250 girls abducted by Boko Haram.


In the wake of the hash tag; celebrities from all over the world voiced out their support. CNN, Aljazeera and notable foreign media outfits were not left out.


Nigerians took to the street in peaceful rallies all over the Nation like we saw in France on Sunday.


The unusual and amazing part is rather than the Nigerian Government support the #BringBackOurGirls movement with all available resources; the Government repelled protesters with “tear gas” and claimed it was propaganda by opposition political parties.


The President will rather meet with Chibok community living in Abuja rather than the real parents or families of the abducted girls.


The latest development and support by 40 world leaders and co was as a result of French Government’s integrity and support for fight against terrorism.


On the other hand, Nigeria’s case with our government was a ridicule of the Nigerian State, people and our identity as a Nation.


Yet, in about 10months…………………hundreds of thousands are displaced; tens of thousands are refugees while thousands are dead and hundreds missing in addition to the 270 missing Chibok girls.


I won’t also forget to add that three female suicide bombers that killed about 20people in Potiskum and another location over the weekend were 10yrs old.


I refuse to agree that Nigeria is a “failed state”. I find it very difficult to agree; no thanks to patriotism. But truth hurts – Nigeria of today is a failed state.


You can take that to the bank.
