In mid-April this year, we woke up to the heart-breaking news that over 200 girls were taken hostage from a secondary school at Chibok, Borno state, North-Eastern Nigeria. Although, this was one in the series of the stories of insurgency in Nigeria, things took a new turn. A month after the awful event, it became global news after much protesting and campaigning-including the popular #BringBackOurGirls on Twitter. Every news media ran a story or more on the unfortunate happening, c...

Once again our collective opinion on voice as a strong vehement Nigerian youth for a revolutionized nation cannot and will never be hidden nor intimidated to extinction. While the insurgents are maiming, killing, and kidnapping innocent Nigerians, the military that was supposed to be our strength as a nation has been compromised leading to the death of more officers than the Islamist groups themselves. The lives of Nigerians far north means nothing to political cabals but an instru...

They killed forty eight men one night ago. They came in to the town, took out a police station, demobilized them and then proceeded to shoot at everything male in their path. They shot them and left their bodies lying in the dark to be collected and disposed. They didn't care; shot at close range and left them for dead. They killed forty eight people in less than four hours. Sadly this is not a one time only incident, there is more... A well executed shoot to kill attack in a h...

It has been 7 weeks since Boko Haram has kidnapped girl students aged from 16-18 in Nigeria. Reports say that 329 girls were kidnapped, 53 had escaped and 276 were still missing. The students are being forced to change into Islam and into marriage with members of Boko Haram.

Its 5 o'clock in the morning, my alarm rings, I snooze it and try to continue my sweet dream from where the alarm intruded. My alarm rings again. *phew* with a sigh I ask myself two questions-- “Is it 5 am already?” or “Did I set my alarm wrong?” I reach out for my watch to confirm the time. Oh dear, it’s really 5 am. A premonition of a hectic day ahead makes me wish the night was starting all over. Still caught between the land of my dreams and the real world, I mana...

If the children of Nigeria are given the right education, they would become clear future leaders. When our girls are kidnapped, that shows the future is dented. We need to advocate for the rights and education of the Nigerian child, particularly the girl child. She has to be prepared and equipped while at school with better exposure so she would understand her issues. Then she ought to be guided to learn more, know more and do more about our world. Society needs to ensure that the...

I would first like to dedicate my condolences to all the girls in Nigeria who went missing. I don't even know where to start. I feel like what Boko Haram has done is very foolish. Who would have thought of taking over 200 girls from their homes and then selling them? Are they mad? I mean I am 11 and if I went missing my parents would be overcome in sorrow. The more I think about the issue, I feel like the military in Nigeria and the President Goodluck Jonathan should be doin...

Education is important for everyone, but it is especially significant for girls and women. This is true not only because education is an entry point to other opportunities, but also because the educational achievements of women can have ripple effects within the family and across generations. Investing in girls' education is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty. Investments in secondary school education for girls yields especially high dividends. In our quest to enhance...

8 more girls have been abducted. Will you sign this petition made by Ify Elueze to help bring back all the girls that have been taken? (The photo is mine. It is not from any site.)
