| Leave a comment

The Bring Back Our Girls Group (BBOG) has expressed gratitude to the management of LEADERSHIP Newspapers Group Limited for giving the group effective coverage since it commenced the advocacy on the missing Chibok girls.
It is exactly 1070 days today, since the renegade Boko Haram insurgents stormed Government Secondary School Chibok, Borno State and kidnapped over 200 school girls.
Since the news of their capture broke, the LEADERSHIP Newspapers Group has been in the forefront of advocating for their release and has been giving the BBOG Group adequate publicity as it champions the release of the girls.
In a letter of appreciation signed by Oby Ezekwesili and Aisha Yesufu, the group applauded LEADERSHIP Newspapers for consistently covering its activities within the last two years.
“We specifically want to thank you for covering our year two and day 900 Global Weeks of Action,’ the group said in a two-page letter addressed to the Group Managing Director of Leadership Newspapers.
The group thanked LEADERSHIP Newspapers for upholding its role as the Fourth Estate of the Realm “with integrity and passion,” adding “we also appreciate your consistent coverage of our Chibok girls which is now a national and global issue upon which civil liberties, security and future of our children rests.”
BBOG Group said it was thrilled to learn that a third girl, Rakiya Abubakar, was recovered by the Nigerian Army stressing that her recovery meant the country was “one girl closer to finding the remaining 195 chibok girls still in Boko Haram captivity”.
Specifically, the Group noted that it was embarking on a Global Week of Action beginning from today to commemorate the day 1000 since the abduction of the Chibok girl
