BBOG Family ReEngages President Buhari

“On January 14, 2016, we will walk all the way to the Villa and we will remind the president of the promise he made.” – Oby Ezekwesili

Last Monday made it 90 weeks since our Chibok Girls were abducted.

On July 8th, the BBOG Family marched to Aso Rock to restate its demand for safe rescue of our Chibok girls under the new administration.
Remarks made by President Buhari during his media chat on Dec 30th were very discouraging and the BBOG Family will march to the Presidential villa next week Thursday (January 14th) to remind Mr President of his promises and the find out why none of the suggestions for communication and liaising with the family have been implemented.

We will continue to demand of our government that Nigerian lives matter!

Join a gathering in your city to stand for our girls:

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