Photo ReportingNigerian girls' abduction shakes Ghanaian women into Mothers' Day protest

“How can we celebrate mothers' day when our daughters are missing,” was a popular refrain from the protesters as Ghanaian women show solidarity to the crisis of 230 missing Nigeria teenage girls.

Hundreds of well-meaning women and men from across the length and breadth of the country have matched to the Nigerian High Commissioners Residence to present a petition on Sunday.

The women believe it is time the Nigerian Government puts in more effort to finding the more than two hundred abducted young girls.

At least 200 school girls remain missing and the government's slow response to the abduction by terrorist group, Boko Haram, has led to protests across Nigeria.

Nigeria's military denied Amnesty International reports that it had advance warning of the attack on Chibok in Borno State.

The girls remain unaccounted for.

Solidarity for the girls has been global. It has been condemned globally including US first lady Michelle Obama.

Here in Ghana, several Ghanaian women have inched up African support this Sunday morning. 2012 Running mate of the Progressive People’s Party Eva Lokko who was part of the demonstrations in Accra said this year’s mother’s day is not worth celebrating following the abduction of the girls.

Eva Lokko said the abduction of the 230 girls in Nigeria dealt a blow to parents, adding this year’s mother’s season is one that brings heaviness to the heart.

She asked that the girls are brought back home by making a legitimate demand since children are a gift and it is essential the world go at length to finding the girls.
