Jonathan, gov­er­nors: We must find miss­ing school­girls

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Let us get this mes­sage cor­rectly, the girls are re­ally not miss­ing; govern­ment knows where they are, so they should go and res­cue them. We should stop say­ing we are look­ing for miss­ing girls but rather res­cue the ab­ducted girls. If the girls hap­pened to be daugh­ters of those in author­ity to­day, we would have seen ac­tion but as it is now, only God can save and deliver them un­hurt. For the Chief Ser­vant and oth­ers to con­demn Nyako’s memo, I think it is rather un­be­com­ing. Af­ter the con­dem­na­tion, what next? Busi­ness as usual? Let us call a spade a spade.

deen­bash@ya­ *********************** It looks like the ul­ti­mate goal of the meet­ing was to dis­cuss and crit­i­cize Nyako’s memo; noth­ing new from that. The lead­ers have been reaf­firm­ing their com­mit­ment and the se­cu­rity agents have re­it­er­ated times with­out num­ber that they are work­ing hard. So vir­tu­ally, it is the same old fairy tale; I still can’t come to terms with the fact that Boko Haram has not been crushed to its feet, it’s scary!


u.a.dan­ *********************** These people need to tell them­selves the real truth that they are pre­tend­ing; they are di­vert­ing them­selves from the real thing that is hap­pen­ing. Let them know that if they keep rul­ing this coun­try as their milk­ing cow by tak­ing the ad­van­tage of the in­se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion to achieve their po­lit­i­cal goals, a time shall def­i­nitely come when enough will be enough. In fact, no one is tak­ing this govern­ment, from federal to states, with an iota of se­ri­ous­ness about their com­mit­ment, be­cause they lack sin­cer­ity of pur­pose.


amin­u­gandhi@ya­ *********************** We hear ev­ery day: “we are do­ing our best”. Tell us the per­cent­age of Sam­bisa for­est you have combed so far. What is the ex­tent of your pen­e­tra­tion into the for­est? We need de­tails as it is tak­ing long now. Now that we know the bat­tle field, send troops in full scale to go and fin­ish the job for I be­lieve the Nigeria Army is up to the task.
