Former Minister for Education, Oby Ezekwesili, who recently held a night vigil at the ThisDay Dome Abuja, with parents of the kidnapped Chibok girls and several other #BringBackOurGirls protesters, Continued today with an organised rally at Maitama Abuja.
Oby Ezekwesili at an 18th day sit- in of the Bring Back Our Girls held in Abuja resolved to forge ahead with the struggle until the girls are safely returned, Ezekwesili said that she was not moved by innuendos and insults now being directed against her. She said that she and others involved in the campaign had legitimate businesses to do, but that their revulsion at the kidnap of the girls stirred them to set aside personal business and comfort to project the interest of the girls.“And by the way, I don’t spend my time here loosely, the opportunity cost of my time is incredible,” Ezekwesili, a former vice-president of the World said.
“Many of you don’t know, but I advise presidents on the continent, in the month of May, I was supposed to be with four of them with their respective cabinets on the kind of economic reform I give to them. I spend an average of a week in this country doing the work that I do for these countries, but I had to cancel them because of this.”
“God forbid that it should be said that Oby Ezekwesili was alive and 276 girls were taken and all we did was sit in our little rooms. You can continue with your insults, but all I say is bring back our girls,” she said to the wild applause of the gathering yesterday.
