Chibok Girls: Five years after abduction, Buhari says there is hope for their return

President Muhammadu Buhari has told parents of the schoolgirls of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State who were abducted five years ago that there is hope for their return.

Mr Buhari said he has not forgotten their daughters, who were kidnapped from their dormitory five years ago (April 14, 2014).

Mr Buhari promised the parents this when he met them (parents), at the beginning of his first term as president, that he would bring their daughters home. He is yet to fulfill his promise.

His spokesperson, Garba Shehu, in a statement Saturday said the president is aware that the promise he made is the main reason the people of Chibok voted overwhelmingly for him in the February elections.

He said although his government has so far succeeded in bringing back 107 of the girls, he will not rest until the remaining are reunited with their families.

‘Still on the matter, five years on’

Mr Buhari assured the parents that “his administration is still on the matter.”.

“Diverse efforts are being intensified to secure the release of the Chibok Girls, along with all hostages in Boko Haram captivity, including Leah Sharibu who was kidnapped from her school, Science Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State, on February 19, 2018,” the statement said.
