    My apologies if I may seem ignorant, but what do these walks and condemning speeches achieve?

      They create awareness, which when properly harnessed in turn creates pressure on those who rely on the votes of those marching to stay in power.

      My thoughts exactly, it’s high time they stop walking in form of exercise, wasting their resources to organise uniforms and pray for this country, God will not reveal His secrets when you’re organising road walks outs, when you’re on your knees the deepest secrest of God is revealed. throwing accusing fingers to the federal governement or the law enforcement agents is not the way forward. abi the law enforcement agents dey no be human beings as we be?

      God didn’t give us brains, hands and feet for nothing. We can and should take action when we can.

      Believe it or not if it wasn’t for protests like this, the girls would be a forgotten issue by now. Now there is global pressure on our leaders to act, and we have help from outside. We are even finally cooperating with neighboring countries to solve this issue. You really have to commend everyone (and I am proud to be one of them) that took to the streets to speak out on this issue. If you’re so hellbent on staying on your knees without taking any other form of action, that’s fine. But don’t discourage or attempt to dissuade those that have taken other actions.

      The young guy that got arrested by SS because he tweeted pics of the army quelling a BH attack, how do you think people even found out he was arrested without charge? It was a simple twitter campaign and protests in Nigeria that led to his release. This stuff works.

      By any means necessary. That should be our mantra. Those that want to pray, do so. Those that want to protest, keep on protesting. Those that want to do both, kudos. That is the way we should be viewing this issue.

      I really hope this proactive nature lasts till elections. Staying at home and praying for good leaders is not the way great democracies are built.

    “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere “. We must not stop using what ever means we have to keep this awareness up and this pressure on! When Nelson Mandela was locked up for 27 yrs the songs and marches NEVER ceased! Over 200 innocent girls haba! #Bringbackourgirls

    God bless everyone who attended. We need to continue the marches, and rallies – let us not forget our Northern brothers and sisters.

    My pastor from back in the day – Pastor Tony Rapu! Iwill never forget how Pastor Rapu reached out to my family after we lost my sister at the age 2o yrs. I was in secondary school then, and wasn’t a tithe payer. My parents went to Anglican church, and I went to Pastor Rapu’s church. When he heard he came to our house for the service of songs. Thank God for pastors like this who reach out to people regardless of whether or not they pay tithes or huge donations to the church.

    @Confuzzled, thanks for that informative piece of information. A lot of people are uninformed when it comes to how things are run/should be run in a democratic and effective manner.
