Are the Yanks still In Town? Whassup?

31 July 2014, 10:36 Peregrino Brimah

Whassup guys? You guys are still in town, right? So what’s the real deal? It’s been three months already that our daughters, sisters and friends have been in the jungle! In another 6 months, some of them will (God have mercy) become mothers in them forests, bear sons and daughters of the devil! Guys, what’s been happening? What’s the progress level, what’s the update?

Please, we the people of Nigeria hope you realize and recognize that it was us who invited you, not the handful of our rulers who tried their best to pray this away, harassed all those who sought their freedom, and went as wickedly far as claiming they had even freed the girls. We the people deserve to be in the know. We the people are motivated, willing, able and capable to participate in whatever is required to rescue these girls and destroy Boko Haram. Can you talk to us, please? We are human beings, we are the parents, the friends the relatives and the family of Chibok. We are the victims and our rulers are mere 'civil' servants employed as servants to serve us. We have not heard a word from you. Can you kindly give us the critical updates? Not a single of these girls has been rescued in three full months! Lord!

We do understand that the President of America is Barack Obama and he is bogged down in so many global crises; however we will like to advise that in this particular instance, you listen to Senator McCain, who seems to understand the challenges of Nigeria perfectly. In a ‘New York minute,’ shall we do what needs to be done to bring back our girls? Please as McCain thoughtfully said, we should not waste time considering and seeking permission from ‘some guy.’ We do hope you have not been Jonathanned – influenced by the rot and launder dependent decay in Abuja.

Consider: Bible, Matthew 18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Please let us bring back our girls and then we can return to the other agenda we might have become preoccupied with. That can wait. The girls cannot any longer. The people of Chibok, Damboa, Askira Uba, Gamboru Ngala and other neighborhoods can no longer afford to wait another day in this deadly desperation, betrayal and hopelessness. We the people are ready to fight. Make something happen. Every extra minute delayed is the worst possible level of failure to humanity.
