Abuja - The #BringBackOurGirls group announced it will later on Tuesday march to the Presidential Villa in Abuja to meet President Goodluck Jonathan amid the failure to rescue the schoolgirls kidnapped in Chibok, Borno State.
According to the group, the meeting with the president is in continuation of its Global Week of Action to commemorate the six months since the abduction of the more than 200 dirls.
The group said it had secured an appointment to meet the president “to convey the urgency for the immediate rescue of our girls and to hear directly from our President and the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces the accurate status of the rescue effort for our Chibok Girls, whose six months period in captivity remains a source of deep anguish to their parents, Nigerians and people all of the world who believe in our shared humanity.”

The group expressed doubts the girls would be rescued from the Boko Haram sect.
“The last 180 days have been one of dashed hopes, intense pain, and confusion for the families due to the lack of accurate information from the Government on the current status of the rescue operation. The march will be joined by some of the parents of the abducted girls, as we continue to stand in solidarity with the abducted 219 girls and their families.”
The group called on concerned members of the public to join the engagement with the President.
