Members of the #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) advocacy are set to meet President Muhammadu Buhari over the missin schoolgirls abducted by the Boko Haram sect 420 days ago.

The group also said it was saddened by the continuous death and suffering in the Northeast.

It urged Buhari to address the country on the moves he is making to ending insurgency and bring back the Chibok girls.

A member of the group, Aisha Yusufu, who spoke on other members’ behalf,  said Nigerians gave the President their mandate because they believed in him.

She said: “The Chibok girls have been in captivity for 419 days and they do not have the liberty to decide to stop living the life of captivity that they have been caused to live. Our daughters have been living in the forest for the past 419 days and still we have not heard anything about them.

“Now the new President has been sworn in and we in the #BBOG decided to give him one week in power before writing a letter demanding to meet with him. We will send our letter to him next week and we will not be begging to be seen but we will demand to be addressed as citizens of this country.

“We are impatient and are tired of being afraid. We are tired of wondering who will be next; we expect that by now, President Buhari would have addressed the country and told us what he has been doing so far. We are tired of being kept in the dark. Nigerians need to know of the steps being taken to end this scourge of insurgency because our Chibok girls are tired of waiting.”
