The kidnapping of the Chibok girls shocked the world. Unfortunately, many of them are still in captivity today, and other kidnappings have occurred, the majority in schools where girls were being educated.
This has created setbacks for the statistics of girl children who access education, particularly in the north, and this creates other chains of vulnerabilities affecting their future. As a family mentioned, it's going to go generations, because, indeed, it took generations to get a girl child to have some level of education in Nigeria.
The government is not doing enough. It's not doing enough to reassure parents that they can send their girls to school, and it's not doing enough to protect the children who are in school or those who are travelling to school.
This is one key area where the government has failed the people. The government has failed the children, particularly girls. It should be a priority for the nation, for the government and for the entire society.
We have very weak security structures around schools, obviously, because schools are being targeted. The fact that it happened the first time, the second time and the third time shows that the government has clearly failed in this regard.
