Dear President Buhari, the Missing Chibok School Girls Are Still Missing

Dear President Buhari, the Missing Chibok School Girls Are Still Missing

Lest we forget that 219 of the 276 kidnapped Chibok school girls are still missing and President Muhammadu Buhari seems to have ignored them.
Many other countries in the world, including China, Canada, UK, USA, Israel, France and Iran are still concerned about these missing girls. But it is business as usual in Nigeria. Life goes on.

It is going to two years since they were kidnapped midnight of 14–15 April 2014 by Boko Haram terrorists from their dormitory at Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, after their principal, teachers and matrons abandoned them and fled. And the Nigerian government since the immediate past administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan to date is becoming less concerned about them as the new ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) and new opposition party, People's Democratic Party (PDP) and others are busy contesting for bragging rights over ministerial appointments of sharing the national cake, taking and sharing selfies in social media of their red carpet events from Lagos to Abuja to Adamawa. None of them has bothered to talk about these precious missing daughters of fellow citizens of Nigeria, because their own children are not among them.

Dr. Oby Ezekwesili is still leading the the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, but the first ladies and their privileged daughters who should have joined the campaign are busy competing for celebrity status on Instagram and Nairaland. 

Have we lost our humanity in the insanity of the vanity of celebrity ego trips and greed for political power?
