Whether people believe it or not, it is better that someone dies and he is buried than for him to be lost and relations are looking for him. The trauma and unending hope awaiting the lost one can be killing.
In the last one year of this global outrage, nations, including the United States, United Kingdom, France and China have vowed to help find the missing Chibok girls, yet, all went back without given any clue on their whereabouts.
While still in this trauma, the Federal Government planned to rebuild the school where they were abducted. Is it rebuilding the school that will bring back the girls? Thank God the parents of the abducted girls insisted that the offer could not take priority over their daughters.
According to a report released by UNICEF, more than half of the 1.5 million people made homeless by Boko Haram are children. “Boko Haram uses children as fighters, cooks, porters, scouts, sex slaves and human bombs and are also used as weapons”, said Manuel Fontaine, UNICEF’s regional director for West and Central Africa.
Now that it is a year that the more than 200 girls have been missing inspite of the demonstrations in Nigeria and many other parts of the world, the new government taking over on May 29 must, as a matter of responsibility, see that these girls are rescued. Nigerians children are hopeful for the release of their friends. Let the ‘CHANGE’ start with the release of the CHIBOK girls
