The past few weeks has been a very trying time for Nigerians, especially the families of over 200 girls kidnapped in Borno state.
But beyond the sadness and despair we feel about the abduction of these girls, the incident has united Nigeria in an unprecedented way and proved what we can achieve through a united effort. We have all raised our voices against this injustice, sparing no means to express ourselves.
What began as a social media campaign initiated by a few concerned individuals has erupted to a global one with people across the world lending their voice to the cause. You would have to be living in a cave not to have heard of #BringBackOurGirls.
Celebrities, leaders, media personalities, youths and regular citizens across the world have lent their voice to this campaign and through our collective effort, the situation is now getting the media attention it deserves.
It is sad that it took this long to gather this momentum, but, better late than never. The noose is tightening on the abductors of these innocent girls and I am very hopeful that they would be found soon and returned to their homes where they belong.
We all deserve the right to be protected. And we must continue demand for change and value for our lives as Nigerians. Praying for positive feedback and the safety of our girls #BringBackOurGirls!
