Their words:??”As we open the page 100 of the history of our great country, today is the day to ensure that no Nigerian child is left behind. From Zungeru to Enugu to Abeokuta to Abakaliki, this is the time to send out a new message. This is the time to let our children know that the book, or Boko, or whichever name it goes by, and whatever language it is written in (Arabic, Chinese or English) it is the only way to that great future we all like to talk about.”

Further more, Boko Halal challenges Nigerian to take a stand and enjoined Nigerians to pick up the book as the most potent weapon for driving social change.

“Today is the day to read the handwriting on the wall. It’s all too clear. It is time we rewrite the current story and evolve a sustainable culture where every child has an opportunity to be the best they ought to be. This is when the world can truly look up to us as the giant that indeed we are. Dear Nigerians, today is the day for Boko Halal”
