Next Friday (September 30) would be the 900th day since the abduction of Chibok girls and the BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) movement plans to mark the unfortunate milestone with a World Press Conference.
According to the co-coordinators of BBOG, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili and Hajia Aisha Yusuf, the focus of the group is for the sustenance of global interest in the plight of about 214 girls who were abducted from their school hostel by insurgents.
“Critical areas to be covered during the press conference include a chronicle of events and messages, our body of demands and a formal response to the Federal Government’s Press Briefing of Friday, September 16th, 2016.
“We call on all citizens and our friends in the media, from within Nigeria and across the world, to join us,” they stated in Abuja on Friday evening.
The BBOG movement has steadfastly pursued a relentless demand for emphatic action by Federal Government towards rescuing the girls.
Boko Haram insurgents who abducted the girls and the nation’s security agencies have been in a game of wits in truncated negotiations that is yet to reach a conclusion despite citizens’ prolonged expectations.
