Group launches #BringBackGoodluck2015 campaign; ...mocks Chibok girls’ #BringBackOurGirls

The Goodluck Initiative for Transformation (GIFT) 2015 has launched its global campaign to ensure President Goodluck Jonathan declares for re-election in 2015, with the hash tag #BringBackGoodluck2015.

At the launch in Abuja, during its sit-out solidarity programme for President Jonathan at the Unity Square, the group reiterated its commitment towards ensuring the president declared for re-election.

The group pledged that the sit-out which is scheduled to run daily until the president declares to contest the 2015 presidential election, would be a success because “we have the capacity, man power and followership to ensure that the president is re-elected into office.”

The #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) protesters have said President Goodluck Jonathan’s new campaign slogan, #BringBackGoodluck2015, does not only show his inhumanity, but also mocks the grieving Chibok girls’ parents.

They said it was unfair for the President to mock the parents “because he does not know what will happen to him tomorrow.”

The protesters said government tried to stop their advocacy through intimidation, “which will not work because we shall stand firm until the schoolgirls, who were abducted 146 days ago at the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok are rescued.”
