Even if GEJ will not help, positive voices all over the world would!
What a clueless president! his next trip would be to go and campaign for 2015! If your child was among the victims, perhaps you'll understand better! Your is deaf & dumb now, but when it comes to useless meeting with governors wives she'll be on the headlines....enough of this, pack your bags and go. Nigeria deserves a better president!

Can we just take the female race serious as the westerners does? Is a shame that most nollywood A-list celebs can't even use their little spotlight to gather freedom fighting for these girls.... What exactly makes you qualified to be among the powerful public figures on Time magazine when you can't flex your charisma? I remembr the Trayvon martin's protest and how many hollywOod celebs(jayz,beyounce,russel simmons,etc) dedicated theiR "too cool time" to express their disapproval to the injustice.... Down here,celebrities are more silent than the grave in political/societal issues and yet they want to be appreciated the same way their foreign counterparts are treatd? Abomination#cheEzyjayne

@ Anon 9:48 I shared the same opinion with you until I realized that anything can disappear in a country where 20 Billion abi na 20 Million dollars could miss without a trace. Dont be surprised that we will wake up someday and Nigeria will be gone!!! So Anon doubt no more as anything no matter how ridiculous or outlandish is possible in Nigeria.

I don't think any girls were kidnapped. How many bh members went for d operation?how come the names and faces of these girls havnt been released?even the escaped ones,why haven't d authorities questioned them or some news from them? All these are strategies. They know what they are doing! Nigerians be wise

vanguardnewsandgist said...

I have been pondering over this kidnap situation and some things dont add up hence these questions. 1. The students are said to be SSS3 student writing Physics examination. Question: why are their names not yet published by the School, State Government and WAEC? Why are their pictures not over the news media? How come all 235 students are in SSS3 and all came to write Physics Examination when the total number of students in the whole school are around 1200? 2. It was anounced that the Borno State government gave N1m each to parents of the missing girls. If this is true: Questions: Why was these money given to these Parents? Was it as compensation for the kidnap or compensation for their death? 3. On Tuesday 29th April, 2014 the Senators from Borno said in the Senate that the girls has been taken out of the country to Chad, Niger and Cameroon and married off to their adoptors. Questions: How come these Senators know so much. Who are their informants. Why is the wife of the State governor organising women to pressure FG in Abuja after the National Security Council has ordered the armed forces to use all State resources to secure the release of the adopted Girls. I need objective answers please. Its time for all Nigerians to start asking questions than drawing conclusion.

Most times most of you talk like fools, cos America is "developed" doesn't make it better than Nigeria, why will nigeria be better when as a nigerian you have forsaked your country. All you do is blame the government while you do nothing on your own to make it a better place. There's no place like home and nobody will make this place better except we individuals start developing in our little. The earlier we begin to recognise that the better and the fact that God gave you the opportunity to afford a mobile phone and internet doesn't give you the right to use it in commenting stupidly. Stop blaming anybody and let's work together, borno Governor can't do it alone, GEJ can't do it alone, Nobody can. Peace

Anonymous said...

They won't do anything, cos most of them suck up to the the govt for financial benefits. Some of them though are speaking up in their own little way Eg banky,waje . I even heard a song that one girl that won west African idol did for this cause yesterday. God will help us.

Unknown said...

#blackgirl is in line with the 'black girls rock' campaign. Pls don't misunderstand her. Its a BET thing that supports & helps black girls in america and around d world.

The problem with Nigeria is not only the leadership...the followers are even worst than the leadership...you guyz sit in the comfort of ur homes criticising the govt, when you do woest things in ur own little world...you that employ pple you dont pay them or you pay them pea nuts over work them despite the fact that you make so much money from the business...madam you that have house help mis treat her as if she is not a human being, oga business man u dupe ur customers, policeman u take bribe, driver n conductor you raise prices of tranport needless at every opportunity, pastors you exploit ur
congregation, bankers you defraid your banks, Student union president emblezzle school funds, lectuers take bribe..nothing is on merit..to get a job you have to know someone that knows somebody..to get admission into university same thing.....Civil servants want to be bribed before they can do their jobs..you hypocritse...you go to church on sunday n speak in tongues then its business as usual on monday....and you wonder why God is not answeeing yiur prayers....Nigerians need to repent...we are the cause of our problem...we have only produced the leaders that we deserve...afterall the leaders are not from space they are from within our midst..Awithin thw followers themselves...so stop the blame game.
