Obajeun.com Blogging Contest On #BringBackOurGirls

Obajeun.com Blogging Contest On #BringBackOurGirls

On the night of Tuesday, April 15th 2014 (approximately 100 days ago), about 300 school girls were abducted from Chibok Government Secondary School – Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, Nigeria. This barbaric and dastardly act of crime was perpetuated by the notorious terrorist group – Boko Haram.

A powerful media campaign tagged #BringBackOurGirls was launched to voice out the grief of the world on the issue, and bring the attention of the Nigerian Government to the pain and sufferings of the abducted young girls. The whole nation and indeed the world at large have been expectant and positive; but till this moment, the girls have not been rescued.

Do you think that the #BringBackOurGirls campaign has outlived its relevance?
