When Will #bringbackourgirls Become #bringbackourwomen

This post has been seen 4485 times.

I had this sketch idea for about a month now. And I kept saying the girls are coming back soon…they are coming back soon, no need.

But in the past couple of days abi weeks everything has gone kinda quiet. The media is quiet, the government is quiet and the military … well they are not telling us anything lest it jeopardizes that super secret clandestine plan to bring back our girls…cough.

In fact and ironically the only people making any noise are bokoharam members as they kidnap more people and detonate even more bombs. Soon our #bringbackthegirls hash tag will disappear under the sounds of their bombs. But it is sure to resurrect again when the 2015 election fully kicks in. Then the political world will rise as they utilize the hash tag as a wedge point … as a tool to win an election. But once that attention goes away …

It will be back to the silence we hear right now, until we get to 2019 and it will no longer be #bringbackourgirls but #bringbackourwomen that’s even if we still remember…

  1. Nice write-up. You just read the minds of many Nigerians. I was actually thinking about this topic of late…about how the whole #bringbackourgirls movement has gone quiet. It’s really sad. Hopefully those girls will be found before they become women…

    The othertime I said no girls were missing they said I was a fool.. Now no one is talking about ’em girls.. Na why the #News has been lyk “another chibok kidnapped victim excaped”.. LMAO! And I’m lyk WTF! Excape! How?

    And if the’re missing let’s hope we find them before they become women lol

    even P.Diddy didn’t know shit abt the kidnap but he was promoting #BringBackOurGirls

    That’s what the Jobless situation of ma country can cause..

  3. I recently wrote on this last week because it was as if the #bringbackourgirls campaign has run it’s course in Nigeria and you know what someone said to me, “I know you are very passionate about these girls and about the need for them to be released but I think there was no kidnapping of any girls because the whole thing appears staged.” Then I asked him, “what about the evidences, Burnt hostels, footage of the parents and some escaped girls?” He replied, ” A beg, when no government official went to Chibok.” If our mindset is like this, then I wonder how we ate going to move ahead. Everyone’s mind is now on politics and election and like I said to a friend, ” I won’t be surprise if our girls were never found until years later because we have forgotten about them and like everything in Nigeria it has become stale news.

  4. Nigeria – theatre of the absurd, nuff said. Yesterday a facebook friend said “if they can bomb Wuse, that means nowhere in Abuja is safe” couldn’t help rolling my eyes at that, we are all watching the country spiral out of control but we cling to the delusion that “they” won’t come for “us” one day. The Chibok girls have been swept under the carpet just like the young boys who were killed in FGC Buni Yadi on the 25th of February this year and nobody has been brought to book and there was miniscule media attention.

    Well, it’s all about the nigerian factor. But for crying out loud, the Americans are here! Everyone thought it’s only a matter of hours before all is well again. Are we cursed or are we the course? The common saying and believe world over is that: things can only get better. In Nigeria however, the reality is: things can only get worse. Am not a pessimist, but a realist. Thanks ofili, you are as brilliant as ever.

    We (Nigerians) seem to have a knack for letting ourselves get easily distracted from the situation at hand.

    Girls get kidnapped…we rally and demand that the government do what is right… President makes a speech… first lady makes her own “speech”…security agencies tell the worst lies ever conceived about how they know where the girls are blah blah blah…a fact finding committee is formed (nearly two whole months after girls were taken, seriously??)

    …we decide that these little gestures are signs that the government is “doing their best’ and everyone jumps off the #bringbackourgirls wagon as quickly as they got on.

    NO FOLLOW THROUGH!!

    We need to learn that a task cannot be completed if it isn’t seen to its end!
