“I have forwarded this video to the FG, Presidency, First Lady Aisha Buhari, Speaker of the House Femi Gbajabiamila, Min. of Aviation Hadi Sirika, & Min. of Foreign Affairs Geoffery Onyeama for N/A. I appeal to them & President Buhari, in the name of God & humanity, to help them out & bring our girls home
“I appeal to them to wipe away our tears &put an end to this national shame & disgrace. First our people are sold into slavery in Libya &it is shown on CNN. Now our girls are caught in the evil web of human trafficking &are stranded in Lebanon &it is shown on LondonRealTV.
“The whole world views these two powerful media mediums and are laughing at us. Please let us do something to salvage the situation and regain our honor. These are OUR girls: we cannot and must not abandon them. Barka da sallah.”
