#BringBackOurGirls : BBOG Group Set For January 14 March To Villa
The #BringBackOurGirls(BBOG) group has stated that it will march yet again to the Villa on January 14th in continuation of its advocacy for the rescue of the Chibok school girls abducted since April 14, 2014.
Speaking during the normal sit-out of the group yesterday, the leader of the group stated that the march was aimed at reminding President Muhammadu Buhari of his promise to the parents of the abducted Chibok girls and Nigerians to rescue the girls.
“After our meeting with the President, we had promised not to disperse but continue to meet until the girls are back. But the feed back we got from the government, did not encourage us. It kept saying that there was no credible intelligence about the girls.
“On January 14, 2016, we will walk all the way to the Villa and we will remind the president of the promise he made in the Villa during our meeting with him and also during his inauguration and every time he spoke about our Chibok girls. We will remind him that if there is anybody that will be uncomfortable that the girls are not yet rescued, it should be him,” she said.
Ezekwesili also stated that on January 15, 2016, the Armed Forces Remembrance Day, the group will be holding a candle light vigil in respect of the fallen heroes who had fought tireless ly for the nation especially during the fight against the insurgency.
“We will celebrate our soldiers. We spoke, we figured that based on the antecedent of the soldiers, there was something wrong with the soldiers, we figured that their officials were not doing what they are supposed to do.
“The military top brass should not exhibit the same character of the past officials. When they were appointed, people had a lot of confidence in them. They should not lose the confidence the people had with them. Once you lose confidence, it is a difficult thing to gather. We want good officers so that we can have good soldiers,” she said.
As part of the programs planned for the day, the BBOG plans various activities, which may involve visitation to the families of the lost heroes and holding other activities, even on the social media to show that the group and Nigerians, appreciate the sacrifices made.
