The #BringBackOurGirls group has called on the federal government to work assiduously hard in the rescue of the remaining 195 Chibok girls before April 14 which will be three years of their abduction.
The group also stated that it was important  that the world works with the Nigerian government to rescue the girls as it would be three years in five weeks since the girls were abducted by the Boko Haram sect.
It called for a global voice in the call for the rescue of 195 remaining Chibok girls as the girls were world citizens whose crime was only to seek to be educated.
In a press release signed by the leaders of the group, DrObyEzekwesili and Aisha Yesufu to mark the International Women’s Day , it stated that a world that is truly working towards inclusion, gender equality, fairness, and equity must prioritise raising its voice for the return the  girls.
It added that it was necessary that the world works with the Nigerian government to rescue the girls as it would be three years in five weeks since the girls were abducted by the Boko Haram sect.
“The International Women’s Day 2017, marked also the Day 1059 since our #ChibokGirls were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok. 195 of our girls are still in captivity with only 24 returned from the clutches of Boko Haram just last year.
“This year’s theme #BeBoldForChange calls on everyone to help forge a better working world; particularly, a more inclusive, gender-equal world.
“Our Chibok girls remain in captivity for 1059 days for simply wanting an education to better themselves and improve the conditions of their families and community, despite the risks and challenges involved.
“A world that is truly working towards inclusion, gender equality, fairness, and equity must prioritise raising its voice for the return of our 195 Chibok girls who are a global symbol of what it means to be bold for change.
“This becomes more imperative as their protracted captivity enters its third year in just 5 weeks on 14 April,” it said.
