We Will Not Stop Protesting Till The Kidnapped Girls Are Found! Genevieve On CNN

By 03:20 Sat, 10 May 2014 Comments

Genevieve Nnaji tonight granted

CNN an interview about the

missing school girls, where she

said 'we won’t stop until the

girls are found'. The interview

was conducted by Max Foster.

Find it below;

Genevieve: Everyone is involved.

We are all mothers, we are all

humans and these are young

girls that have been taken into

captivity and uh.... we just felt

that as.. some of us who have a

bigger face and more

recognizable in terms of being

celebrities and having a large

fan base, we thought it's our

responsibility to help shed light

and bring the fight to the

forefront and stop this inhumane

act. Continue below....

There has been some criticism of

the authorities in Nigeria that

they were slow to react to this.

What's your reading into that?

Genevieve: Um, for me I think it

would be unfair to say our

government was slow to react

because no one knew whether

they reacted or not. The thing is

we weren't told, that's the

problem, we didn't know if they

were aware of the situation or

not. So, the major problem

people are having is that lack of

communication between the

government and the people. We

just wanted them to, at least,

react to us. And make it aware to

our knowledge that they know

what was going on, we knew

there was a problem at hand, its

just that lack of communication..

Has it improved now?

Genevieve: Well, it has improved

a whole lot, Now we can see

things being put in place, now

we can see the efforts being

made and again, that will be

credited to the noise that has

been made, towards the

campaigning that's been made

around the world, you know, the

global community having an

interest in this. So, we are

grateful for all the attention.

What it has done is create hope

in a situation that seemed

hopeless in the beginning.

What do you make of other

countries offering military

support of various forms. Is that

something that you welcome or

would you rather that the

Nigerian authority deal with it


Genevieve: This has been going

on way too long and um....

there's no shame in asking for

help and in taking it. The truth

is, terrorism is not a country's,

it's not our problem, it's not a

continent problem, it's a global

issue and if everyone can come

together and help fight it at

every point, at any part of the

world, as long as we act as one

again. This is a breach of human

rights, it's something that should

concern each and everyone. So,

it's welcome.

How has this affected Nigeria as

a nation?

Genevieve: I think this situation

is becoming a bit too close to

home and this has nothing to do

with gender, religion or

whatever. This is a human right

problem and we are all human

and what is going on is very, you

know, inhumane if you ask me.

And what it has done now is

given us that confidence to know

that our voices are loud enough

to heard all around the world

and we won't stop.
