Will they be coming back?

By Chxta

One of the tougher aspects of trying to get things done in Nigeria is perception issues. Yes, those of us who call this, err, geographical expression home, tend to be faced with a higher pole than people from other parts of the planet. Hence a daily morning tonic to [snip: Marketing department] people can get red flagged as fraud. But thankfully, this morning tonic is back. For now at least. A luxury that so far has not been afforded the vast majority of a group of young maidens who were forcefully taken out of their beds in the middle of the night by evil men, six months and one week ago now.

In the period since the disappearance of the girls, a group of do-gooders have day and night, made sure that the issue has remained in our consciousness. Unfortunately, and as is typically Nigerian, even the best of intentions are seen through the prism of primeval intent. Thus it was that when the do-gooders began bringing pressure to bear regarding the issue of the missing maidens, some of our babarigas chose to play politics with the issue. In a frankly miraculous incident yesterday, one of those babarigas saw the light and said, sorry.

It is possible, following Mr. Ogbeh’s seeming penitence, that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Does Chxta believe that the girls are coming home? No, and statements by sources within the echelons of power bear that belief out. Should the #BringBackOurGirls campaigners stop because hope is waning? Why in the name of all that is good and holy should they?
