The Kibaku Area  Development  Association (KADA), (Chibok Community) has appealed to the federal government and its agencies to restrain from trying to portray the #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group  in bad light.

While briefing the  press, the National president of the association, Dr Pogu Bitrus ,    state d that the group was fighting for a worthy and just cause and have stood not only for the girls but for other abducted citizens.

“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“ Our religious principles demand us to do to others what we want them to do for us.” Therefore, BBOG is fulfilling divine mandate and should be encouraged and not maligne.

“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 recued alive and reunited with their parents, families and community.

“It has become imperative once again as community leaders and direct feelers of the unfortunate incident that brought our land to national discourse to come out and make clear our positions on the recent happenings in the country around the demand for the rescue of our daughters abducted on the 14th of April, 2014, with 218 girls still remaining in captivity for over 880 days today.

“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.  As community leaders therefore we identify and validate with absolute confidence and trust every individual, group, or organisation standing with us in this advocacy and demanding for our daughters’ freedom,” he said.
