DAY 4: #BringBackOurGirls Global Week of Action

 
 



 Here's #BringBackOurGirlsNYC's appeal: Please also tweet at President Buhari and VP Osinbajo, as well as Pres. Obama and Sec. of State Kerry, plus UN Secretary Gen Ban ki Moon.   Below my tweets to them today:

@NGRPresident @ProfOsinbajo Please redouble efforts to rescue our #ChibokGirls April 14 will be 2yrs in BH captivity http://blogs.afp.com/correspondent/?post%2Fchibok-two-years-on

@POTUS #BringBackOurGirls. Please prioritize rescue of #ChibokGirls. Approx 2 yrs Boko Haram captivity. #HopeEndures http://news.trust.org/item/20160408173256-2jw7n

@realJohnKerry #BringBackOurGirls. Please prioritize rescue of #ChibokGirls. Approx 2 yrs in Boko Haram captivity. http://news.trust.org/item/20160408173256-2jw7n

@secgen #BringBackOurGirls. Please prioritize rescue of our ChibokGirls. April 14 = 2 years in Boko Haram captivity. http://news.trust.org/item/20160408173256-2jw7n

My people, can you tweet these things and ask your friends to do likewise?

Another #BBOGNYC stalwart on FB drew attention to the fact that the US Democratic Party's New York City debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders is happening on April 14, which is the 2-year mark of our #ChibokGirls abduction by Boko Haram.  We should remind the two candidates that our girls remain missing. Both candidates are loving grandparents.  Both campaigns have flooded my mailbox with all kinds of solicitation and invitations. I will just keep responding to them with our "What you can do" demands and ask them to say what they're doing to help rescue our #ChibokGirls and all others held captive by brutal Boko Haram.  

Here are my tweets to both:

@HillaryClinton #BringBackOurGirls Pls prioritize rescue of #ChibokGirls. April 14 = 2 yrs in Boko Haram captivity. http://news.trust.org/item/20160408173256-2jw7n

@BernieSanders #BringBackOurGirls Pls prioritize rescue of #ChibokGirls. April 14 = 2 yrs in Boko Haram captivity. http://news.trust.org/item/20160408173256-2jw7n

Please also ask Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to work on rescuing our #ChibokGirls however they can.

Listen to Angelique Kidjo, who's right on point about the origins and perpetuation of Boko Haram violence, and the importance of educating our girls in the African continent:
