Women for Peace and Justice – Lagos, do not give into time squandered and insist : #BRING BACK OUR GIRLS!
We cannot forget! We must not forget! Our humanity and our respect for human rights of girls and boys, of men and women, rest on recovering all kidnapped victims. Justice must never be complacent or silenced. If we are complacent, we are complicit.

Agreed! This kidnapping of girls for a variety of reasons is happening all over Africa and has been happening for far, far too many years!
Absolutely Terrifying and Troubling!
It seems impossible one hundred days have gone by since the girls were taken. But, for the families of the children it must feel like an eternity. I think of the girls all the time and as the old Quakers used to say, “I ask God to shine his light on them.”
Former President Obasanjo recently said that ‘we’ have to be realistic that some of the girls will never be returned but on BBC Hardtalk, Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former Nigerian minister, says there is still hope and she believes in miracles. We can only hope this will be so.
