Nigeria's military has promised increased security but appears incapable of halting a stream of attacks by extremists holding more than 250 schoolgirls hostage.
The kidnapping of the girls two months ago and failure of Nigeria's military and government to rescue them has roused international concern. The United States is searching for the girls with drones and has sent experts along with Britain and France to help in counter-terrorism tactics and hostage negotiation.

The reader should please pardon me if I sound a bit preachy and personal this morning. With the Ramadan fasting period here, the reader, I am sure, will understand, if not pardon, my preachiness today. I will like to start with a little introduction of an organisation based in Kaduna of which I am the chairman.

...
Vision Trust Foundation, VTF, was founded eight years or so ago at the initiative, as far as I can recall, of Alhaji Falalu Bello, Sarkin Bai Zazzau and Alhaji Ahmed Dasuki.
...
I took over as its chairman when he moved on to advise the Vice-President.
...
VTF was also concerned about the educational and economic backwardness of the region as well as the relative backwardness of Muslims in all parts of the country.
...
One of the small but practical steps we first took towards achieving our objectives was to start a micro-credit scheme and a motor-cycle ownership scheme for victims of the religious riots of February and May, 2000. Long before then we had agonized about what to do regarding the use of unemployed youth on all sides of our political and religious divides to foment the kind of violence that had changed Kaduna from being arguably the most accommodating city in the country into one hell-hole of religious riots.
...
At the end of the workshop, we received about N5,800,000 (Five million, eight hundred thousand Naira only) in cash, cheques and pledges from Kaduna State government, the Vice-President, business groups, the British-American Tobacco Nigeria, Foundation (BATN,F) and individuals including the chairman of the occasion, Alhaji Ismaila Isa Funtua.

BATN,F, represented by its General Manager, Mr. Folu Koku, offered to train twelve youths on computer and secretarial studies at a private computer school.
...
As at last month, we had a total of about N3,500,000 in our kitty for the project, with the balance of about N1,300,000 still outstanding as pledges. Out of the N3,500,000, we have spent over N3,450,000 to train 112 youths (including the 12 sponsored by BATN,F) in computer skills in Kaduna Polytechnic and at a private computer school.

Needless to say, if all of us in positions to do something about society's problems can commit ourselves to doing so, the difference would be a huge, huge one. Our regular introspections and our little experience at VTF suggests that one of the biggest obstacles to solving our problems of poverty is not any lack of resources - these are aplenty at both public and individual levels. Rather it is the mix-up in our priorities at both levels.
This is why I am writing this morning as we begin the holy season of Ramadan fasting to appeal to Muslims and Christians alike to lend a helping hand to the VTF and to all organisations that strive to help the poor and the underprivileged to become self-dependent.
In writing this piece I will like to refer the reader, especially the Muslim reader, to one of the most profound articles that anyone has written in recent times on how simple it is to solve the problems of our society - if only we sincerely wish to do so.
This is the article written by Adamu Adamu entitled Memo to Umra returnees in the January 17 th edition of Daily Trust and reproduced last week-end in the Weekly Trust by its editor, Garba Deen Muhammad, with a witty but profound small introduction meant to hopefully prick the reader's conscience.
...
For the benefit of those who may not have read the article, Adamu did a simple arithmetic which was highly revelatory of how privileged Muslims, as individuals and as political leaders, have got their priorities mixed up by regularly spending both private and public funds on the annual ritual of Hajj and Umra even when such monies could be better spent attending to far more basic needs of their less privileged compatriots.
...
The object of his article, said Adamu, was to "remind non-first-time pilgrims - and by extension all socially conscious Muslims - that while they flew out in droves to perform the umra, a bigger umra at home was left undone".
The author shows how Muslims spend an average of over 20 billion Naira annually on umra when Muslims are "behind in all indices of development", and when it is said that giving succour to the poor and needy or bringing happiness to the afflicted is better than a hundred Hajj after the obligatory one.
...
If we do so we will surely narrow, if not eliminate, the gap between the poor and the rich, a gap which invariably turns us into each other's enemy rather than each other's friendly neighbour.
...
As far as the editors at these global media are concerned, if Unicef says the vaccine is safe - which a Unicef spokesman says it is - there is no earthly reason why anyone else should have any doubt.
Yet anyone even superficially familiar with the mysterious ways of multi-nationals, including pharmaceutical conglomerates like Pfizer and Monsanto, knows that in their pursuit of profit, it is not beyond them to suborn governments and even international organisations like the United Nations and its organs, including Unicef.
...
In our BBC story about the polio campaign a spokesman of Unicef admitted that tests on the vaccine may SEEM to indicate the contaminations feared by those who have expressed reservations about its safety.
...
In my article, I said the retreat was held in 2001 at the onset of the bank's problems. I have since learnt that it was held in January this year as a desperate measure to halt the bank's decline that had started two years before.
...
In my article, I said the family of Umaru Majigi to which the late Etsu belonged, did not descend from Dendo, the founder of the Fulani dynasty of the Nupe Kingdom.

Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means Western education is sacrilege. The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom.
We were sleeping when we heard gunshots. When I woke up, someone was pointing a gun at me, Musa Hassan, 15, told The Associated Press of the assault on Government Secondary School in Mamudo village in Yobe state.
...
On Saturday, at the morgue of Potiskum General Hospital, a few miles from the scene of the attack, parents screamed in anguish as they attempted to identify the victims, many charred beyond recognition.
...
Islamic militants from Boko Haram and breakaway groups have killed more than 1,600 civilians in suicide bombings and other attacks since 2010, according to an Associated Press count.
...
On Thursday, gunmen went to the home of a primary school headmaster and gunned down his entire family. Witnesses said they attacked at 7 a.m. as the owner of the private Godiya Nursery and Primary School was preparing to leave his home in the town of Biu, about 180 kilometers (110 miles) from Maiduguri.
...
Residents told the AP that they had noticed suspicious movements of strangers and could have alerted soldiers and police, if their cell phones were working.
...
Borno state officials say more than 20,000 people have fled to Cameroon in recent weeks amid the violence.
...
However, the area covers around 155,000 square kilometers (60,000 square miles) or one-sixth of the sprawling country. The rebellion poses the biggest threat in years to security in Africas biggest oil producer.
Soldiers say they have killed and arrested hundreds of fighters. But the crackdown, including attacks with fighter jets and helicopter gunships on militant camps, appears to have driven the extremists into rocky mountains with caves, from which they emerge to attack schools and markets.

As many as 50 students may have been killed in the attack that began at about 1 a.m. Sunday in rural Gujba, Provost Molima Idi Mato of the Yobe State College of Agriculture, told The Associated Press.
...
The school's other 1,000 enrolled students have fled the college that is about 25 miles north of the scene of similar school attacks around Damaturu town, said provost Mato.
He said there were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances that they would be deployed.
...
Government and security officials claim they are winning their war on terror in the northeast but Sunday's attack and others belie those assurances.
The Islamic extremists have killed at least 30 other civilians in the past week.
Twenty-seven people died in separate attacks Wednesday and Thursday night on two villages of Borno state near the northeast border with Cameroon, according to the chairman of the Gamboru-Ngala local government council, Modu-Gana Bukar Sheriiff.
The military spokesman did not respond to requests for information on those attacks, but a security official confirmed the death toll. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to give information to journalists.
Also Thursday, police said suspected Islamic militants killed a pastor, his son and a village head and torched their Christian church in Dorawa, about 100 kilometers from Damaturu.
...
More than 30,000 people have fled the terrorist attacks to neighboring Cameroon and Chad and the uprising combined with the military emergency has forced farmers from their fields and vendors from their markets.
...
The attacks come as Nigeria prepares to celebrate 52 years of independence from Britain on Tuesday and amid increasing political jockeying as the country gears up for presidential elections next year.
