Good News soon, the Nigerian Council of States tell us this morning. What exactly does that mean? Does it mean we should begin to rejoice before the deed is done? Or that we should heighten our expectations on the return of the girls before they actually do? We have always said that the Military and the law enforcement agencies know the whereabouts of the girls, as now they claim they do. There was no way that number of people could be so hidden without a trace.
The President, we hear is till refusing to negotiate with the vandals. Let’s just assume that one of his daughters were among the captured girls, will he not have ended this drama long ago? He would have been the one offering heaven and earth to Boko Haram for the release of the girls. Unfortunately, this is a case that is so remotely connected to him, in fact, the only connection is that this whole drama is happening during his watch, and so he does not feel the urgency of it all.
President Jonathan should be advised, if he has advisors, and if he listens to them, that time has already ran out for his style in handling this matter, and he should change his style and quickly, without any further delay, bring those girls home now, then we will rejoice.
(We will continue).
