I Can’t Promise My Government Will Find Missing Chibok Girls – Buhari

by

President-elect, Gen Muhammadu
Buhari says his incoming government
cannot promise the return of missing
Chibok girls but that they would do
everything within their power to secure
their return. He said this in a statement
he released today April 13th to
commemorate one year of the girls’
abduction. The statement below…

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 today. I want to
assure all of them, and particularly the
parents, that when my new
Administration 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
accordingly.
This new approach must also begin
with honesty. 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. 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. 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
improved educational opportunities as
a direct 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 just through military means but
also through the power of opportunity
and the hope of a better future for all”.
