Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has urged the incoming government, to be headed Major-General Muhammadu Buhari to reinforce efforts at finding and bringing back the missing Chibok girls. Soyinka made the call on Tuesday, at a forum organised to mark the one year anniversary of the over 200 missing girls, who were abducted on April 14, 2014 from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State. The event, which took place at the Airport Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, was organised by a Women Arise, followed by Dr Joe Okei-Odumakin. Soyinka also said that the country and the citizenry owed it a duty that such assault did not happen again. “We must make sure that such assault on our humanity doesn’t happen again. The survival of humanity and of the nation must remain paramount,” he said. Speaking further, the Nobel Laureate maintained that terrorism was not a Nigeria phenomenon alone and, therefore, might not be going away soon.
He contended that Nigerians must not get used to it, while urging for vigilance on the part of everybody.
