President Buhari promises rescue of Missing Chibok, Dapchi girls
Mar 14 2018 by Kathy Alvarado
Buhari is touring areas hit by security problems and this week will visit the state where the schoolgirls were abducted, the statement said. As a matter of fact, to prove to Nigerians how inept he is, the President canceled the Federal Executive Council meeting that was to hold after the Dapchi Girls were kidnapped because of a conference he had to attend.
"The Commander in chief also revealed that the security operatives have been mobilised adequately to ensure the rescue of the abducted Girls of GGSTC Dapchi".
"President Buhari added that Nigeria was working in concert with global organizations and negotiators, to ensure that the girls were released unharmed by their captors", the presidency statement said.
The President pledged free and fair polls in 2019, recalling that the then American Secretary of State, John Kerry, had visited before the 2015 polls, "and he told the party in government then, and those of us in opposition, to behave ourselves, and we did".
Many parents expressed optimism that the President's visit to Dapchi would avail him clear picture of the actual situation of the schoolgirls' abduction. "This is borne out of this administration's conviction that doing so is safer, so that it will not endanger the lives of our young girls".
At 3:48pm, the president arrived at the Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi, where he had face to face meeting with parents and students in the school before his final address.
He stressed that he will never allow Boko Haram insurgents to continue perpetrating evils of killing innocent people in Churches and Mosques.
"They are out there sweating it out in the sun, making a living".
The jihadists are still holding 112 of the 219 students they abducted from the Borno state town of Chibok in April 2014, and also 110 pupils taken from Dapchi, in Yobe state, in February. We are determined to restore peace to all part of the country - from the West to the East; North to the South. I call on law abiding citizens to shun activities and statements that may cause a breakdown of law and order.
