According to Emmanuel Ogebe, the International Director, Education Must Continue Initiative, in a week that could almost be termed "Nigeria week at the White House", the Chibok schoolgirls visit last weekend was preceded by that of prominent upcoming New York Times best-selling author and blogger Luvvie Ajayi just the day before.
This is the fourth in a series of White House visits for the Chibok girls in US facilitated by US Congresswoman Frederica Wilson of Florida in conjunction with Education Must Continue Initiative. Over half a dozen Chibok girls had visited the White House in Easter 2015 and 2016 but this the first Christmas visit.
The high school senior and a college girl were sent to US to school by Education Must Continue Initiative, and NGO which is comprised of victims helping victims in northeast Nigeria. The two Chibok girls are the top academic performers of their set in the US.
