After one in captivity, all hope seems to have lost on Chibok girls as President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has said that he’s not sure if the abducted Chibok girls can still be rescued.
Buhari, however added that his government would do everything possible to bring the girls back home.
The President-elect made the comment via a statement released on Monday, April 13, 2015, in commemoration of the one year anniversary of the girls’ abduction.
“Today we remember the kidnapping of 276 girls from a school in Chibok one year ago. This crime has rightly caused outrage both in Nigeria and across the world,” Buhari said.
“We do not know if the Chibok girls can be rescued. Their whereabouts remain unknown. As much as I wish to, I cannot promise that we can find them. But I say to every parent, family member and friend of the children that my Government will do everything in its power to bring them home,” he added.
Speaking further, he said: “What I can pledge, with absolute certainty, is that starting on the first day of my Administration Boko Haram will know the strength of our collective will and commitment to rid this nation of terror, and bring back peace and normalcy to all the affected areas.”
The abducted girls were taken from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014.
