Day 193! ………………How Did We Get Here? (144)

“We’ll help Nigeria rescue Chibok girls –Israeli envoy”

I don’t know what to think about this new help that is being offered. Others before Israel has offered help that never materialized, so I don’t know whether to rejoice or to remain skeptical. Until I begin to see concrete results of this new offered help, I will remain calm, and watch.

“Still no trace of 200 kidnapped girls in Nigeria”

A man who claims to be Abubaker Shekau, the notorious leader of Boko Haram continues to make appearances and brag about his exploits. His claim about marrying the girls off is another brag, just a brag. We had known for long that the girls will not escape abuse from the hands of Boko Haram, so telling us now that they have been married off is to cover-up what we already know. What the so called Shekau doesn’t know or doesn’t want to admit is that no matter what they do, those girls will never belong to them. Their captivity will surely come to an end, as long as there is a God.

“Boko Haram: Nigeria not helpless, says CDS”

The CDS, don’t ask me what CDS stands for, continues to assure us that Nigeria is safe. We are not talking about safe from ebola, we are talking about safe from Boko Haram. In the face of all we know about Boko Haram, this man wants us to believe that Nigeria is safe?

“Tambuwal has right to defect —Sagay”

This story is about the sit-tight house speaker who defected from his party to another one while still sitting on his old party’s elected spot. The praise singers are out singing his praises and urging him not to resign. This is another of Nigeria’s style of doing things. We have not heard the last of this.

(We will continue.)
