    Mr President wake up,those children are not in SAMBISA forest,they just make a cover up so that you will not order the securities body to burn down the forest,the Governor of Borno state cannot deny that he did not know what is going on about the matter,am sure those children are keeping in an apartment as part of the northern effort to frustrate your government,wake up from your slumber mr President

    In as much as one wishes terrorism comes to an end soonest.One has to be careful of the US and its role in impoverishing , destabilising, and siphoning the wealth of the African nations, with a view of maintaining its dominance globally. A critical example is the case of Libya, similarly Iraq and Afghanistan.

      @MKO, many people have been or are still saying what you said. But I do not seem to get it. If we are capable of maintaining a stable security (which I know we are except the absence of “goodwill”), why are those innocent young girls suffering for nothing? We are yet to start living like humans. Over 200 girls kidnapped? For over 3 weeks? And people are still debating whether we should use force to rescue them or not. It’s quite unfortunate. We have educated people. Of course the US would not offer help for nothing. But remember that we are also an important nation to them economically. So what’s about that? Strike a deal! Pay them for their services. Learn from them. The day Boston had a bomb explosion, I guess less than 10 people died but the entire city was shut down until the culprits were napped. All hands were on deck. That’s how “HUMANS” live. Within a space of 20 days up to 40 people died in Abuja, the nations capital. Hahaha! What happened? Nothing. The Human heart is not supposed to stand INHUMANITY. It is part of our nature. So when those who are ignorant or say psychologically deranged due to long brain-washing are in operations, nature demands that sane people react or else NIgeria becomes an animal kingdom. God help us!

    Thats a step in the right direction. For those who say that Nigeria is weak. That we are the giant of africa and we cant handle our affairs. We all know that the issue of terrorism is a global issue. And i believe with the help of International organisations that shakau and his members, wherever he may be, will be flushed out, disgraced and our girls will be rescued! Let us join our hands and pray that the aim of Boko haram on the life of these girls should prove abortive and the mission of our military men should come to fruition..

    That is a welcome development. But mr. President you should be aware that conditions will be given to you by the American government, i.e if and only if you agreed to those conditions (1) you must implement gay marriage into law. (2) they (america) must have their own share by 50% in nigerian’s crude oil etc. Before they can offer any help to you to overcome the group of idiots called b/h. Shine your eyes mr. President. May God bless our nation.

      Holy prophet Gbenga Rotimi, where have you been? We Nigerians have been waiting for you all these while. Now that you are here, and prophesied in the name of “God” right? Ok. Which God by the way? Is the boko haram allah or the god with which many of your compatriots uses to exploit innocent-religious-vulnerable citizens? Or the God Who is Love? We all hope you should be speaking on behalf of our Loving God. However, if the Lord has not spoken to you be mindful of this: “a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death”(Deut 18:20); “Then the LORD said to me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds” (Jer.14:14); “I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied” (Jer 23:21).

      All I am saying is that God in His Divine Power and Love “has given us EVERYTHING we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness”(2 Peter 1:3). When read further, you will discover that it is now our RESPONSIBILITY to take action using everything that has been given to us.

    Good luck Johnathan a curse to the Nigerian political class. How he managed to become president of Nigeria is what beats my imagination. Just like many African Intellectual class who have failed to come up with meaningful reforms to stir the continent economic glory, Johnathan represents a shamble of Academic qualification and a disgrace to PhD holders in Africa. That A president in his right sense will afford to celebrate his daughter a wedding with 81 cars and thousands of custom made cell phones, while millions of his youths die either in the hands of terrorist of stampeded upon in an effort to secure a Job, leaves me with a broken heart to conclude that Nigeria’s political elites are morons who care only at how much is entering into their accounts illicitly, from contracts to oil money than the future of their youths.
    This explains why, Mr President was dancing in Kano clamoring for a another term of office while his girls where being subjected to the most inhuman indignations in the sambasi forest of Death, by Boka Haram. As if that was not enough, his security men openly lied to the world that the girls have been rescured before their parents discounted that claim. In fact in any civilized country in the World, that security officer will be dismissed immediately and send to the guillotine. Even within Nigeria, Nobody saw any reason why government should act in rescuing the girls, until the Nigerians in the Diaspora started rallying global support about it. After-all there are 170 plus million Nigerians of which 70% of them live below poverty line while the director of the national Pension funds gallops $29 bil. But was asked to pay N.170,000 in return to the whopping by a credible court in Nigeria.
    I just learn that the US government has given $20. million to Nigeria to fight insurgency. How on earth will you accept that money when mr President has caused the disappearance of $20. bil of oil money and yet no investigation. In fact Nigeria is a class of its own on this planet earth where every bad element of debauchery and sinister acts of dehumanization occurs on a daily routine. The drive for fast wealth and money glutenous mentality has made an average Nigerian to look like a beast, with some changing into carnivorousness humans and others wolfs and lions. Mr president and wife. what a disgrace to Nigeria.

    @prophet, I agree with ur number 1fact.. We Nigerians can fix our problems but its getting beyond expectations.. BH boys are getting stronger each day that passes.. C’mon, don’t tell me nigeria is that big that we can’t know the location of those bloody scavengers? Well, we have always believed and trusted in God.. That is why God loves us and he is going 2 protect those kids till rescue teams show up.. USA intervention? Hmmmm its “eye 4 an eye” .. Well, in God all our hope remains.. But I hate the US, if helping us stopping this tragic violence in Nigeria is their top priority, then am liking. #God bless Nigeria
