      Abi? let’s actually protest against the government too because they are not only failing to instil confidence in the people through the effective administration of the rights and duties conferred onto them by virtue of their post, they are also ludicrously failing to act as the upper guardian of all Nigerian children. Nigerian government needs to fix this terrorism issue–it is their responsibility to do so. Inasmuch as citizens must be patriotic enough to involve themselves in alleviating the crude conditions in which we live in, I for one was not elected President and so my primary function is not to oversee all sectors of the economy, it’s not to ensure that my people have good roads, good healthcare, basic amenities. I did not take an oath and swear that I will protect my land and its inhabitants. Someone else signed up for that. Why should the layman now be burdened with the obligation of usurping powers conferred on a democratically elected governmental body just because they seem too content living in lavish splendour to care for the everyday troubles of that layman that “press their haan” to put them into power.

    Like play like play, it’s been four weeks and these clowns are “demanding” their release, you are right on time people. Well, guess what, the good people of the world have been ‘condemning and demanding’ too for weeks. Who exactly are you demanding to release the girls, the president? Are you not the president’s helper or why were you elected?? I wish ‘demanding’ can solve the problem
