#BringBackGoodluck2015 launched Campaign Causing controversy

share on:

Lately, banners that arouse public interest to vote for Goodluck Jonathan at the upcoming presidential election have been seen in the streets of Abuja.

However, the slogan on these banners has stirred controversy as #BringBackOurGoodluck2015 looks just like variation of #BringBackOurGirls campaign.

#BringBackOurGirls campaign was created to reunite over 250 abducted by Boko Haram Chibok girls with their parents.

A lot of media resources expressed their irritation to this insensitive move. It has been almost 5 months since Chibok girls were kidnapped, and it seems that the government has forgotten about their rescue.

It is not the first time Nigerian politicians distort #BringBackOurGirls slogan. For example, the former Governor of Oyo State, Alao Akala made #BringBackOurMan as his new campaign slogan.

Do you think this campaign intended to mock the movement in support of Chibok girls advocacy?

Share your thoughts.

  1. as insensitive as the post seem. you will find out that it has a also reawaken the cry for the release our girls.
    most media houses, individuals and celebrities who were once very concern about the girls must have even lost count on how many days the girls have stayed there. but now this “insensitive hash-tag should awake your prayers and call for the release our girls.
    for me (not political) its a gimmick to reawaken your cry for bring our girls i see they have launched a new campaign #releaseourgirls
