-News:-I Cannot Guarantee Rescue Of The Chibok Gir

Mohammadu Buhari
says as much as he
wants the
abducted Chibok
girls rescued, he
cannot assure that
his government
when sworn-in will
be able to do so.
“As much as I wish
to, I cannot promise
that we can find
them,” Buhari
was quoted to have
said in a statement.
“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.
“Today is a time to
reflect on the pain
and suffering of the
victims, their
friends and families.
Our thoughts and
prayers, and that of
the whole Nigerian
Nation, are with you
“I want to assure
all of them, and
particularly the
parents, that when
my new
takes office at the
end of May, we will
do everything
we can to defeat
Boko Haram.
We will act
differently from the
Government we
replace: we hear the
anguish of our
citizens and intend
to respond
“This new approach
must also begin
with honesty. We
do not know if the
Chibok girls can be
rescued. Their
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.
“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
“’Boko Haram’
means ‘Western
Education is Sinful’.
When they are
defeated militarily,
as they will be, we
will ensure our
citizens in the
affected areas have
opportunities as a
counterbalance to
Boko Haram’s
twisted ideology. In
particular we will
educate ever more
young girls ensuring
they are
empowered as
citizens of Nigeria.
“Let us use this
anniversary to
remind each other
that the attack on
Chibok was an
attack on the
dreams and
aspirations of our
young people.
“We stand united in
our pledge to resist
terror in Nigeria– not
through military
means but also
through the power
of opportunity and
the hope of a better
future for all,” the
statement read.
