Malala Yousafzai - July 2014 - BN News - BellaNaija.com 01
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani education activist, is on her way to Nigeria to campaign on behalf of the school girls abducted by Islamist militant sect Boko Haram.

The 17-year-old who also supported the viral #BringBackOurGirls social media campaign is expected to be in Abuja, Nigeria on Sunday, Telegraph UK confirms

Malala Yousafzai will meet with relatives of kidnapped girls and will seek an audience with President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Her presence will hopefully put more pressure on the government to help bring back the girls.

Malala Yousafzai became famous when she was shot by the Taliban in October 2012 after she spoke publicly about girls’ rights to education.

    Malala is an inspiration and I am so thankful that she is doing well. I hope that she can inspire many Northerners and Muslims to speak out against the culture in the North which oppresses women and children in the name of religion. The current custom of child marriage, almajiri, passivity about their future, reliance on others to take care of them, entitlement mentality, etc should be discarded.

    Such customs may have been good some years ago, but are not relevant in the 21st century. The only people who can bring out this change are those from within who have been exposed to more liberating ideologies. Please educated Northerners and Muslims, help your brothers and sisters to rise up. You have been empowered so that you too can empower others, not just your family. Please help them too, the government cannot do everything.

    All these acts is limited to the poor muslims family, community,etc. Have Boko Haram ever attacked a rich muslim family, child, their community, or their childrens’ school? They haven’t yet started and until they visit schools where all these rich past and present muslim senators, biz mogul, etc, children attend, to perform this act of abduction, they are not yet Boko Haram (Book is sin) but Boko Harass (Harass by Book). They are only envious of the vast knowledge the West has over them.

    This chibok issue is a complete failure of the government for the lack of communication if nothing else. Half of Nigerians doubt the kidnap is true, the other half are split between blaming the opposition and just giving up, as long as it is happening far away. US forces have come and gone, now poor malala. We should discourage any more international assistance so we don’t show our ignorance and incompetence.

    I love this Malala girl
    Adult men nearly killed her when she was 14 or so because she was going to school
    so she understands more than the rest of us when people are against you getting an education.
    As women we ought to give our best to school and training as entrepreneurs because the devil is afraid of women of influence
    He thrives in darkness and oppression.
    He wants always to pervert the plan of God. God is stronger anyways.
