We want our daughters back home!

08 May 2014, 12:51 Abdulazeez Adelaja Akinlolu

Why is it so difficult for President Jonathan to be presidential? One expects specific updates on efforts being made to free our abducted daughters. Why will defenseless and unarmed parents enter the forest to search for their daughters? One expects that military helicopters and other war machinery would have been deployed immediately to free our innocent daughters and ensure they come to no harm. Is Sambisa forest impregnable by both land and air? Why were Sambisa forest and other camps on our borders not combed and destroyed before now? To what intelligence use was the information received from our brave daughters who escaped from the devils? Why is this government so corrupt? What happened to the several trillions of naira spent on security?

I cried deeply when I read the news of the abduction of our innocent daughters. The inner workings of my brain were filled with parental concerns as a father of a daughter. What is the fate of these young girls? Are they alive and safe? What will be the psychological effects of these eternal assaults on these young innocent girls? What happens to their future? What happens to their educational careers afterwards?

What if they are being raped? What if some of them are not only raped by one beast but gang raped? What happens if any of them get impregnated? What if any of them gets infected with HIV or acquires other life threatening conditions? What if some of them become used for violence?

Will I as a father embark on any merry making with my daughter in captivity? Will I not work non-stop without any distraction and ensure our daughters are brought back home safely; as the President and father of the nation?

Mr. President: We want to hold our daughters in our arms! Be presidential! Please, bring our daughters back home!
