| Leave a comment

Chibok community under the auspices of Kibaku Area Development  Association {KADA} has pledged it’s overwhelming support for the #BringBackOurGirls group which had continuously for two years advocated for the safe return of the 219 Chibok School girls.

While briefing the press, the National chairman of the association, Dr Pogu Bitrus stated that it had absolute trust in the movement and its members and expressed appreciation over the group’s  resilience in the issue of the abducted girls.

“ Let the truth be told, if not for BBOG the issue of Chibok girls would have been long forgotten. We therefore appeal to the Federal government and its agencies to restrain from trying to portray the BBOG in bad light for standing for worthy and just cause of demanding the rescue of our innocent daughters, many others in abduction and continues calling for attention on the IDPs and Northeast in general. Our religious principles demand us to “do to other, what we would want them to do for us.” Therefore, BBOG is fulfilling divine mandate and should be encouraged and not maligned,” he said.

He however stated that the advocacy for the rescue of the Chibok girls is not a struggle for the Chibok Community, families and parents of the abducted girls alone but it is a national and global advocacy that must be sustained until the girls are rescued alive and reunited with their parents, families and community.

“Regardless of all distractions by portraying the movement in bad light, we want to assure all the members of the BBOG movement and especially its leadership that the leadership of KADA and its entire membership are with you. We appreciate your empathy, sympathy, trust, and sense of patriotism as citizens for standing for one another no matter the social status. We earnestly implore you to continue with your good work of advocating for the rescue of our abducted daughters,” he said.
