Chibok Girls: Action confirms Buhari’s sincerity, says Shettima
Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State yesterday said that the rescue of 21 Chibok schoolgirls by the military has strengthened the determination of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to rescue others.
In a statement issued in Maiduguri by his Senior Special Adviser on Media, Isa Umar Gusau, Shettima said: “As people of Borno State troubled by the deaths and destruction of Boko Haram insurgency, one of our major sources of strength since May 29, 2015, has been the undiluted sincerity we saw in President Muhammadu Buhari based on his administration’s absolutely genuine commitment towards recovering our schoolgirls.
“We had faith in Buhari from the very day he took off as President.
“I am certain that the recovery of our 21 precious daughters from insurgency only strengthens the resolve of the Buhari administration to continue to work tirelessly until all the girls and all Nigerians abducted are freed.”
Shettima also commended the Nigerian armed forces and all those who worked towards the release of the 21 Chibok schoolgirls, saying: “We shall forever be grateful to those who contributed in any form towards this major feat that renews our hope to recover all our girls alive and in good health.”
