             I was tremendously excited when I heard that the incredible and award winning child education activist, Malala Yousafzai will be visiting Nigeria to show support for the #bringbackourgirls campaign. The girls abducted by Nigeria’s radical Boko Haram have been gone for more than three months now.
          The Pakistani activist, who turns 17 on Monday, held an early birthday celebration with some of the girls who escaped the mass abduction in the north-eastern village of Chibok in April. “I can see those girls as my sisters… and I’m going to speak up for them until they are released,” she said during a meeting on Sundaywith some of the parents of then abducted children in the capital, Abuja. “I’m going to participate actively in [the] Bring Back Our Girls campaign to make sure that they return safely.”
Later, standing beside four visibly delighted children from Chibok, she blew out the candles of a birthday cake.

    I admire and respect Malala so much. Being just a few months older than her, I’m so inspired by her large heart and great works which have received a lot of recognition. This young fighter actually went to Chibok despite the insecurity. Of course, I’m not so surprised. Someone who could really challenge the Taliban is truly a fearless fighter!
     I couldn’t however agree more with Malala. We can’t keep silent.  We can’t sweep this away! Our innocent girls are still missing! The Nigerian government must wake up and do something.
