They also want to call on President Buhari to address Nigerians on the effort made so far in rescuing the girls.
According to the group, “During this meeting we shall not only convey our deep anxieties at the failure of the Federal Government to successfully rescue and bring back our 219 Chibok girls after 443 days (as of Monday), but will demand a specific timeline that the new administration may have for bringing back our girls and other abducted citizens and ending the insurgency.
“We shall also use this meeting as a citizens’ movement to understand, and contribute to the strategy for countering terrorism, ensuring post-insurgency recovery, and other related issues”.
Sesugh Akumen while talking to journalists said it was over 428 days since the advocacy of the group and said it was time for action and the rescue of the remaining 219 girls are long over due.
