The Bring back our Girls campaign group have begun a 43-day countdown in anticipation of the release of the about 219 girls kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Borno State still in captivity.
The group launched the countdown today in Abuja, the nation’s capital, citing their confidence on claims by security agencies that they will restore peace and normalcy to the troubled northeast of the country within 6 weeks.
That was the key factor considered by INEC in altering the timetable for the general elections; though for many Nigerians, the postponement of the general elections citing security concerns was a big disappointment.
This however for the bring back our girls movement has come as a blessing as the news of the Nigerian military’s renewed offensive against the boko haram insurgents gives fresh hope for the rescue of the kidnapped Chibok girls.
With The countdown already begun, many Nigerians especially those of the bring back our girls campaign group will be hoping the girls ten months ordeal, finally comes to an end.
