I Don’t Mind Being Shot As Long As They Return Our Girls – Patience Jonathan

First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, has promised to stage a protest march to Chibok, Borno State, if the abducted schoolgirls were not released.

Mrs Jonathan said this in Abuja after a meeting with governors’ and ministers’ wives, female senators, commissioners and more than 200 women from various groups at the State House in Abuja, which was convened to seek the actual whereabouts of the kidnapped girls.

According to her, a committee will be inaugurated to include wives of all relevant stakeholders at a meeting scheduled for May 4.

She said that refusal of any of such relevant stakeholders to be contacted for the meeting would also lead to a mass protest.

“I cannot perpetuate hearsay and rumour; I must have facts to tell the international community.

“We will set up a committee to seek the truth as women.

“If any of those we call refuse to come, we will take the protest to Chibok.

“I do not mind being shot as long as they return our girls to us safely, we are tired of the kidnapping,” she said.

Jonathan said that the first ladies of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and various other countries had called to ask questions and offer assistance on the matter.

“They intimated me of their readiness to help, they also asked me questions that I could not answer ‎and as women we are the last hope of this nation. We cannot fail our fellow women and the nation.

“‎If need be, we will call on the northern elders to help us so that our children and husbands will not die,” Jonathan said.‎‎ ‎

The ‎Head of WAEC, National Office, Mr Charles Eguridu, at the meeting gave a clarification over the number of students enrolled for the examination in the school.

Eguridu said that those registered in the Government Girls School, Chibok include a total of 530 made up of 395 girls and 135 boys.

“The school had been reverted to a mixed school but the name remained Government Girls School.

“We were able to relocate 189 of the total number to write their exams at another village called Uba‎,” Eguridu said.‎

Others who spoke at the meeting included Mrs Yemisi Suswan, Sen. Nenadi Usman and Prof. Sarah Jibril.


  1. QUESTIONS:1. Why are their names not yet published by the school, state government and WAEC?2. Why are their pictures not over the news media?3. How come all 235 students are in SSS3 and all came to write physics examination when the total number of students in the whole school is around 1200?4. It was announced that the Borno states government gave N1m each to parents of the missing girls. If that’s true:QUESTION: 4(a).Why was these money given to these parents? Was it as compensation for the kidnap or compensation for their deaths?

  2. Please for crying out loud this girls have names let them publish the names its not only when plane crashed the manifest will be published for us to know eeh so Mr J was there,please do the right thing in publishing their names if not its hard to believe!
