#OfficeOfTheCitizen on NigeriaInfo 99.3 FM – “Bring Back Our Girls – 2 Years On”

On this week’s episode of the program, EiE Nigeria’s Executive Director (and an active member of the #BringBackOurGirls family), ‘Yemi Adamolekun engaged listeners on the journey so far. Whilst 18 parents of the missing girls have died, it was also heart-breaking to realize (from callers during the program), that some still believe that the cause was a political agenda against Goodluck Jonathan’s government at the time.

The BBOG Family’s advocacy for the return of the Chibok girls continues. Join a BBOG gathering in your city as we countdown to 2 years without our Chibok girls:

Abuja – Unity Fountain, Daily, 4:30pm – 6pm
Lagos – Falomo Roundabout, Ikoyi, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
Osogbo – Freedom Park, Sundays, 5pm
