Nigeria’s first lady, Aisha Buhari has used the occasion of this year’s International Women’s Day celebration to call for the release of kidnapped Dapchi and Chibok school girls.
She also used the opportunity to call on security operatives to be more awake to their responsibility of protecting lives and property of citizens.
The first lady took to her social media accounts on Thursday, March 8, 2018, to make the appeal.
She posted, “Today, I congratulate Nigerian Women on the occasion of International Women’s Day. For us in Nigeria, this year’s #InternationalWomensDay comes with a difference.
“We have to reflect the sad incidences of the abduction of our daughters, especially the recent one in #Dapchi Yobe State. This for us should take center stage.
“That is why we decided to develop a local theme: #LeaveOurDaughtersAlone as a strong call for the end of this national disaster and hope for their release.”
