The #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group has postponed its proposed march to the Presidential Villa, Abuja to Tuesday, next week.

The group had planned the march as it’s fourth march in the marches it had held every 72 working hours since the Plea For Rescue Video was released by the Boko Haram sect recently.

While disclosing the reason for the shift of the March, a member of the media team of the group, Emman Shehu stated that it was postponed so that it will enable the Muslim faithful to say their Jumat prayers and Asr prayers held at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.

The group had revealed that it will continue with its advocacy and other activities until there is a persuasive action from the federal government to rescue the abducted Chibok girls.

Shehu also revealed that on Sunday September 4, there will be an engagement with Christian Leaders and also a Christian service at Unity Fountain.

“On Saturday, September 3, there will be an engagement with Elder Statesmen.

We will also have engagement with the French Embassy, September 6, and with  ECOWAS, September 7,” he said.

The group had also added that it  will continue to monitor the response of President Mohammed Buhari until the desired action it wanted is gotten.

“We renew our demand for decisive action to #BringBackOurGirls and a deliberate and urgent response to the catastrophic humanitarian crisis.

“This must be accompanied by swift investigation and prosecution of root causes, governance failures, and cases of diversion of food and other relief materials.

“In conclusion, as Nigerians, and concerned citizens around the world, we join the parents in saying #NoMoreDelays,” it said.
