Why We Are Yet To Go To Chibok - Oby Ezekwesili by ochejoseph(m): 10:30am On Jul 04, 2014
he BringBack Our Girls group(BBOG) group, Abuja family has stated that apart from its daily sit outs and rally, the group is still determined to go Chibok to visit the family of the schoolgirls abducted by the Boko Haram sect,2014.
The group, which spoke through one of its leaders, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, while responding to questions from journalist yesterday, said that during the early weeks of its advocacy, the group had wriiten to the National Security Adviser (NSA) for security clearance to visit the place, she added that Col. Dasuki (rtd) the group is still waiting for the NSA response on the matter
Ezekwesili said that the visit to the community is important to the group as it will have the opportunity to empathise and engage with the families of the kidnapped girls, adding that the group has had many engagements with them through people from the community who were in the group.
She said ” We want to go to Chibok and see the families of the girls who have been in the hands of their abductors for over 80 days. Imagine what the families are passing through? We want to go there to empathise with them and make them know that they are not alone and that we stand by them in their anguish.”
Also speaking, the chairman of Chibok Community in Abuja, Tsambido Hosea-Abana, stated that his people appreciated the activities of the BBOG, saying that the group activities was the only thing that gives them hope in their present situation.
” The group gives us hope because what government promised us have not been fulfilled. My people call us every time to asks us what is happening here. They commend this group. If it wasn’t for this group, our girls would have been forgotten,” he added.

The people living there, do they have security clearance to stay there?
All this one na wash!! Go to Chibok if you want to. Sitting in a park is appreciated, so is holding bringbackourgirls signs as well as sharing on twitter. But the real brave ones would go all the way to Chibok, security clearance or not to show they truly care.
Like I always say, we need more actionists and not activists!!

Am glad this is public now. So can NSA do something about it. God bless Oby Ezekwesili and everyone that has supported #BringBackOurGirls

And may Devil punish all those that Hacked Nairaland to delete every news about #BringBackOurGirls Campaign and the records of government mismanagement of the issue.

It's actually very disheartening that the APC under the leadership of Buhari and Tinubu has not yet found it necessary to order the release of the over 200 girls kidnapped by boko haram at their command since over 80 days, which accounts for a whooping 2 months plus.

These guys are really hard hearted and stone livered to keep 200 plus girls away from their parents just because of some dirty politics that they play. I just hope they would be caught when their dirty linens are washed on public.

DeCritique, you are swimming in ignorance. Here is why:[b][/b]
- Both men, other APC leaders and as a party have repute in strong terms the abduction of these girls. They have asked the FG to do all within its power to bring back these kids. And has also welcome international help to ensure their return.
- APC both their leaders and members have no authority to ORDER their release. That is Jonathan's primary responsibility.
- Jonathan has lied and even denied it happened at some point. The government even funded a parallel group to beat-up the BringBackOurGirls group. Where was your outrage.

Now Nairaland was Hacked to delete the records of everything including how Okupe was crying on Twitter because he was refused a hug and how DHq lied that they rescued the girls, Commando Style. How about the skelewu dance of strength in Kano the day the girls were kidnapped?

Today you have the audacity to blame it on APC leaders not issuing Orders.
