Nigerian Government moves to rehabilitate freed Chibok girls

The Federal Government has donated drugs and other essential commodities to an undisclosed medical facility for the rehabilitation of the 82 rescued Chibok school girls.

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, presented the items to the clinic on Monday in Abuja.

Adewole made the donation during a visit to the rescued girls at the health facility where they are currently receiving care.

The minister assured the recently freed 82 Chibok Girls of the determination of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to ensure their complete health and wellbeing.

“We are happy for you and we thank God for your release.

“President Buhari has shown his commitment to your plight and has directed that we offer best of medical services.

“We are going to take care of you so that you can go out and live productive lives again.

“It is our job to help you. Please, do not hide anything from us,’’ Adewole said.

The minister also assured Nigerians that every needed commodity shall be provided as soon as the laboratory results are delivered.

He called on the medical team to setup individual chart to track the progress of each of the girls.

Adewole called on the care providers to give special attention to psychosocial services bearing in mind that the girls have been held captive for almost three years.
