The Federal Government of Nigeria has vowed to cater to the needs of the 21 Chibok girls released recently by Boko Haram.
This responsibility from the FG includes: the released girls’ personal, educational and professional goals and ambitions in life.
The President also promised that the released girls will be given adequate and comprehensive medical, nutritional and psychological care and support.
This assurances was made by President Muhammadu Buhari while he hosted the girls and their parents on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The 21 girls were released last week following negotiations between the sect and the Nigerian government.
The International Red Cross and the Swiss Government played some mediatory roles in the negotiations.
President Buhari further said:
“The Federal Government will rehabilitate them, and ensure that their reintegration back to the Society is done as quickly as possible.”
“It is a moment your parents, the Nation and the International Community have been eagerly waiting for, since your abduction on 14th April 2014.”
“The Nigerian DSS, Military and other Security Agencies have spared no effort to secure our girls.”
“These 21 girls are the manifestation of our doggedness and commitments to the release and return of the Chibok girls.”
“While joining their parents to rejoice and praise the Almighty, we shall redouble efforts to ensure that we fulfill our pledge of bringing the remaining girls back home.”
“Already, the credible first step has been taken and Government will sustain the effort until all the remaining girls return safely.”
