Nigerians have been urged to continue to pray and support the government in its efforts to secure the release of Chibok School Girls in captivity.
A member House of Representatives from Taraba State, North East Nigeria, Hammanjulde Garba Chede made the appeal while commenting on the three years anniversary of the abduction of the School Girls.
The lawmaker who commended the Nigerian Security Forces for the successes recorded in the fight against insurgents Boko Haram said soon the remaining school girls would be released.
He said “though some of those school girls have either escaped from their captives or rescued by the security forces, but some are still in the hands of the Boko Haram insurgents, I am confident that they would be rescued very soon.”
Mr. Garba Chede also reiterated the House of Representatives’ commitment to the security and well being of Nigerians in line with the Legislative Agenda of the 8th Assembly.
The House had in a motion on the Three years Anniversary of the school girls’ abduction urged the Nigerian government to expedite negotiation for the release of all the remaining abductees.
The Sponsor of the motion, Asabe Vilita Bashir from Chibok, Borno State stressed the need for government to intensify its effort at negotiating with the Boko Haram sect as the government informed the Nation in October 2016.
Hajiya Vilita Bashir also expressed concern that if Government did not hasten its efforts, the chances of rescuing the girls in good condition were diminishing by the minute in addition to finding it more difficult to rehabilitate them if and when eventually released.
On April 14th, 2014 insurgents Boko Haram stormed the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok, Borno State and abducted over two hundred school girls, many of them still in captivity.
