Nigeria's President Reportedly Negotiates Release Of Abducted Schoolgirls

Talking better to rescue schoolgirls Nigerian leader

President Buhari noted that Nigeria is blessed with a fertile land and other natural resources for agriculture development, saying it is an embarrassment that the country still imports most of the food items it consumes.

In a statement on Wednesday, the former Special Assistant on New Media to former President Jonathan queried; "Between a President who calls an emergency meeting after Chibok and a President who canceled an important meeting so he could attend an economic conference, who can be described as looking the other way?"

We, therefore, have no doubt that the Dapchi girls will be rescued or released.

"There will be no rest till the last girl, whether from Chibok and Dapchi, is released".

Boko Haram Kidnappings: Will Buhari bring back Dapchi Girls?

The group posed some questions to the federal government regarding the arrest, including: "How is it that almost four years since the abduction of our Chibok girls, we are faced with yet another similar tragedy by the repeat abductions of schoolgirls in the Dapchi girls' tragedy?"

It beats my imagination why a President who is close to 80 years of age will continue to lie like a child.

"The Dapchi and Chibok students are our girls and must enjoy our protection".

The Chibok Girls were kidnapped on April 14, 2014. While expecting the report of the Committee set up to investigate the abduction for implementation, I have asked that appropriate Federal Government authorities be in constant touch with the Yobe State Government and other neighbouring States to ensure a common strategy and line of action.

Is this the act of an administration or a President that looks away?

During the visit he will hold a town hall meeting with stakeholders and meet with parents of Dapchi school girls. No, he has not. The EU confirms its full support to the Nigerian government and people in their fight against violence in all its forms.

The group, which was set up in the wake of Chibok, accused the government of "incompetence and carelessness" and would sue it for criminal negligence if the girls were not freed.

Receiving the American Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, in audience at State House, Abuja, Monday, President Buhari added that Nigeria was working in concert with global organizations and negotiators, to ensure that the girls were released unharmed by their captors. I urge Nigerians to Google this direct quote to know their President better.

Buhari based his conviction on recent successes recorded by the administration in rescuing Boko Haram hostages and the backing of the worldwide community.

The government denied a ransom was paid.

Again, three weeks ago, Chief Mike Okiro, the head of the Police Service Commission, revealed that under President Muhammadu Buhari, 150,000 police men are guarding "big men" instead of performing core police duties.

Parents of abducted Dapchi school girls in Yobe State, yesterday lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for considering the option of negotiation against use of military force to rescue the girls.

"How were the school and community left to be vulnerable to this tragedy?"

Boko Haram, which has killed tens of thousands of people since 2009 in its bid to create an Islamic state, lost most of its territory in the face of an offensive by Nigeria's army backed by troops from neighbouring countries in early 2015.
