Nigerians Demand Action From Buhari On Chibok Girls

Nigerians Demand Action From Buhari On Chibok Girls

On April 14, 2014, Boko Haram stormed a Government Secondary School in the town of Chibok in Borno state, kidnapping over 200 female students in the dead of the night.

The abduction of the girls in Chibok, north-eastern Nigeria, sparked global outrage, with nations such as the US and China promising to help find them.

But one year since the girls were snatched from the loving care of their families, Nigerians are still perplexed that there are no clues yet about their whereabouts.

A cross section of Nigerians have called on the incoming government of the president-elect, Gen Muhamadu Buhari, to make the rescue of the the girls a top priority, just as they urge the military to do more to spare the country the distress and tackle the Boko Haram insurgency.

According to AP, Buhari has said he cannot promise to find the missing Chibok schoolgirls but promised his administration will do everything in its power to ensure the girls are rescued.

However, some Nigerians who spoke with The Sun have maintained that finding the Chibok girls must be Buhari’s priority. They described the Chibok girls saga as a show of shame which Buhari’s administration should remedy.
