BringBackOurGirls Press Release on Tomorrow’s March to the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock
On Thursday, 22nd May, 2014, the #BringBackOurGirls Team will embark on a protest march to the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock. This is in continuation of our citizens’ engagement over the need for the authorities concerned to take the lead in safely rescuing our over 200 schoolgirls still in custody of Boko Haram.
Therefore, as the President and Chief Security Officer of the country, this movement deemed it necessary to take its cry and demand to His Excellency, President Goodluck Jonathan.
Those intended to participate in the protest are to convene by 2:30pm at the usual venue of the
#BringBackOurGirls village square meetings, Unity Fountain, adjacent to Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Maitama, from where the march will commence at 3:00 pm.
The Thursday peaceful demonstration is sequel to similar such engagements such as those we’ve had with the National Assembly, the National Security Adviser, the Defence Headquarters, and the Borno State Governor.
Leaders of this movement have also had a fruitful exchange with the National Security Adviser.
It is the wish of this movement that this engagement will catalyse positive action towards quick rescue of our abducted girls.
Members of the public who share the passion and mission of this movement are hereby invited to join the march.
