Charly Boy: Nigerian entertainer marches for Chibok girls

* Charly Boy marches for Chibok girls

Musician and popular Area Fada, Charles Oputa, Aka Charly Boy Monday embarked on a lone march for the abducted Chibok girls.

Charly Boy who marched from the Unity fountain in Abuja to the Villa gate stressed his support for the Chibok girls who were abducted from their school in Chibok by Boko Haram almost three years ago.

He said that the government is sitting on a keg of gunpowder because their protection cannot be guaranteed since that of Nigerians is no longer guranteed.

His words, “It seems our mumu never do, because if our mumu don do, our girls should have been back but I see that we are pandaring to a government that is insensitive and dont care for its citizens, the government can’t protect us, they can’t do anything for us and for a government that can’t protect its citizens, that government is sitting on a keg of gunpowder because their protection, the looters, the scammers, the cheaters we all have here, cannot be guaranteed, if our protection is no longer guaranteed, theirs cannot be guaranteed, bring back our girls.

“I decided to match because there is enough of impunity, enough of misgovernance, everything is wrong with Nigeria and I am just mad because my fellow frustrated Nigerians are just becoming too docile for my liking, it is time to do something.

“Our girls are missing, they can’t get back our girls, they can’t give us a good life, so what are we living for? I don’t look that I will die for nothing, I can’t die for nothing, I must die for something, it is some people’s blood that we will take to wash the road so that Nigeria can be better.”

Former Minister of education and leader of the #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) advocasy Oby Ezekwesili thanked Charly Boy for standing up for the Chibok girls and added that his actions shows that the Chibok girls belong to all.

“We want to appreciate Charly Boy for being the face of #IMatchForChibokGirls today, thank you for being an important conscience of the nation, especially I, waking to the younger people to the fact that our mumu don do. You dont just have daughters but granddaughters and your coming out shows that our Chibok girls belong to all of us.

“For as long as we are Nigerians, we share in the heritage of our Chibok girls and by being the one that matched for them today, you are calling on us all especially the leaders that have the responsibility to bring our girls back to their duties and that silence on our Chibok girls is unacceptable.

“It is not good governance to be quite about 195 young women that have been left with Boko Haram for almost three years.”
