Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari meets with Chikbok girls

Nigeria; Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari has met with the 21 Chikbok school girls. Remember that the 21 school girls were released by the Islamic terrorist organization Boko Haram last week. Boko Haram kidnapped about 200 girls from a school of Chikbok about two years before.

The girls were released by the book Haram after the successful negotiations  with the government and government also released some of the Boko Haram militants.

Buhari  said on his Facebook page:

:Today I received 21 dear daughters. They have seen the worst that the world has to offer. It is now time for them to experience the best.

They will be given adequate and comprehensive medical, nutritional and psychological care and support. The federal government will rehabilitate them, and ensure that their reintegration back to the society is done as quickly as possible.

Aside from rescuing them, we are assuming the responsibility for their personal, educational and professional goals and ambitions in life. Obviously, it is not late for the girls to go back to school and continue the pursuit of their studies. We will be with them every step of the way.

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.”

A total of 197 are still missing. The abductions led to one of the biggest social media campaigns under the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag on Twitter.

The government is very near to release 83 girls more and negotiations have been started between the two parties according to the credible resources.
