Malala’s Visit Helpful In Terms Of Attention – Macebong

A social commentator, Joachim Macebong, says the visit of the Pakistani

Child’s Right activist, Malala Yousafzai, to Nigeria to support the call for the rescue of the over 200 girls abducted by members of the Boko Haram sect was helpful because of the attention it drew to the issue.

There have been several reactions raised by the visit after the Nigerian President, Goodluck

Jonathan, decided to schedule a meeting with the parents of the

abducted girls, a meeting critics said was long overdue.

On a Channels Television’s programme Rubbin’ Minds, on Sunday,

Macebong said that Malala’ visit rekindled the feelings of people over

the abducted girls’ issue which was almost loosing relevance because

of the crisis in the Middle East.

“People now remember that there is this unresolved issue that has not

come to a conclusion,” he said.

On the possibility of finding the girls, Macebong said that there were no

easy answers at the moment.

He stressed that the inability of the government to secure lives and

property in Nigeria led to the abduction of the girls, a development he

said would continue if the government failed tackle the challenge.

A scheduled meeting between the President and the parents of the girls

did not hold after the few parents of the girls that were in Abuja to meet

with Malala decided not to attend the meeting because other parents of

some of the abducted girls were not with them.

Macebong said that scheduling the meeting three months after the

abduction of the girls was awkward and not acceptable in the African

Impeachment Of Governors, Price For Lack Of Control

On the impeachment of governors in some states in Nigeria, Macebong

said it was a target on areas where larger numbers of members of the

State House of Assembly were from the Peoples Democratic Party.

He insisted that the impeachment of the Adamawa Governor, Murtala

Nyako and the process of impeachment of the Nasarawa State

governor, Tanko Al-Makura, that has started, were political.

The governors of Adamawa and Nasarawa States are of the opposition

All Progressive Congress.
