Chibok girls: Niger state cancels Children' Day and Democracy Day celebrations

The Niger state government today May 22 cancelled the forthcoming Children's Day and Democracy Day celebrations in the state. According to the state's Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Danladi Ndayebo, the celebration was cancelled because of the missing Chibok girls and the security situation in the country.

Briefing newsmen in his office, Alhaji Danladi Ndayebo said the Governor, Alhaji Aliyu Bababngida directed that both days be used to pray for the girls as well as the nation
"Owing to the security situation in the country, Gov. Babangida Aliyu has directed that this year’s Children’s Day and Democracy Day be used to seek God’s face and intervention for the nation. The Ministry for Gender Affairs and Social Development will mobilise children on that day across the state to pray for the release of the girls abducted by Boko Haram in Chibok, Borno State.” he said

It is well. Our Tarba, Our Billboard Governor will be the first to do that forgetting that charity begins @home. He should first mend his broken fences.

Its a good idea but gathering the children again for prayers? Hope thehy are safe o.... Why not allow the innocent children to rest in their various homes?

Why will u not cancel when your administration has nothing to offer children except to marry them. And u also don't have any project to commission on democracy day. Ode! Backstaber former G7 member.

Good! Now we are thinking. What are we celebrating when the children who are the future are being hounded and kidnapped? We are helpless in looking for them so we should be helpless in celebrating.
