Bring Back Our Country

#BringBackOurGirls. And bring back our country, President Jonathan

The Guardian's Chibundu Onuzo hopes the #bringbackourgirls attention forces the Nigerian government to be better. 

And yet, as elated as I am over the overdue coverage this issue is finally receiving, I cannot help but wonder what comes next. When the girls are released, will they be returned to a country where they are not at risk of being abducted again? Will they be released to families that are safe from the threat of Boko Haram attacks? Will they come home to a Nigeria where the money meant for their education, their health and their future is not siphoned off into accounts around the globe?
