Obiageli Ezekwesili on the importance of challenging extremism

obiageli-ezekwesili-1-Arab Woman PlatformObiageli Ezekwesili, co-founder of Bring Back Our Girls, discussed how the world has handled the missing 219 young women abducted from Chibok by the militant group Boko Haram, during the 7th annual Women in the World summit, at Lincoln Center in New York on Wednesday. 
 
“The issue with abduction is you’ve got to sustain your action. You’ve got to make the victim — in this case 219 girls — so important that you cannot ignore,” Ezekwesili told AFRICAN JIHAD panel moderator Margaret Brennan of CBS News. “We don’t want a situation where forces of evil and extremism thinks it’s O.K. to cut off from learning society. It’s an assault on our society….without the world pushing back.”
