#BringBackOurGirls “GEJ is weak, we need help”’ – Stella Damasus, Mercy Johnson on Chibok school girls

Stella Damasus and Mercy Johnson
have lent their voices to the ongoing social media campaign #BringBackOurGirls
– to rescue the 234 female students kidnapped by Boko Haram in Chibok, Borno
state.

Stella Damasus in a Vlog published
on Youtube a few hours ago stated that the Nigerian Government has failed to handle
Boko Haram.
‘Nigeria has been described as the
giant of Africa, the wealthiest nation and so it shocks me that such a huge
crisis is going on and the world seems to turn a blind eye…The Nigerian
Government and GEJ are weak, Mr President Are You Too Ashamed to Ask for Help?
‘It is an open secret that the Boko Haram is a politically motivated group that
cannot be reasoned with. In fact, their main goal is to prove to the world that
the Presidency of Goodluck Jonathan is as weak as being weak can be. And I’m
sorry to say, the Federal Government, your actions is proving them right.
Mr President if this issue is beyond
you, go out and ask for help…. Mr President, why have you not asked for help?
Are we too ashamed to ask for help?’… The things that happened to the missing
girls could have happened anywhere in the world. How are the explosions in
Abuja different from the bombings that happened at the Boston Marathon in 2013?
The world should come to the aid of Nigeria. Dialogue cannot work, amnesty
cannot work’ she cried out.
Mother of one, Mercy Johnson in a press statement ALSO wrote “All well-meaning Nigerians must come together and help these
mothers who have been in pain for more than two weeks and make the memory a
reality — the reality of seeing their children again. Let us not for once think
that the evil-doers who turn the realities of these mothers to memories cannot
do the same to us if they have the opportunities.
This is not a war against select
group of people; it is a war against all well-meaning mothers in Nigeria as
injustice to one is injustice to all. Let the mothers rise, the men who love
them should stand by their right hand and the children who adore them on their
left and do all we can in our spheres of influence to ensure that the children
come back home safe so that the mothers can smile again.
Can you pray? Increase the tempo of
your prayers. Can you fast? Add extra days to it. If what you can do is protest,
please do; perhaps you are a soldier and can go to the war front please do not
sit still. You are a politician or a voice that Boko Haram can listen to,
please speak.
We need the girls back!!! They are
innocent, they have their future ahead of them, please do not cut it short. I
dare say some of them will end up being the solution we desire to restore the
lost and battered glory of this nation. Please don’t kill or damage the future
all in the name of militancy.
I appeal to the soldiers and other security
operatives, don’t be demoralised, please fight hard, fight more and fight on.
Do not let this evil people for once think that they can get away with this. If
they ever get away with this, let me assure you that we won’t all be able to
sleep with our eyes closed and that includes you, your wives and children. If
an Emir can be killed in his palace, who is safe in his or her home? Nobody!
I appeal to the political class and
those in power, do not think that any right-thinking Nigerian would allow that
this matter be swept under the carpet, this isn’t one of the matters we would
keep mum about. We will continue talking, praying, protesting until you make
the matter your matter. If your child were one of the children that was
abducted, we would probably have heard of the end of the matter. Let’s not fold
our arms and let evil reign.
Nigeria shall be great, only if we
do the right thing and the right thing at this moment is to bring our girls
back and alive.” She concluded.
