Presidency finally admits not knowing whereabouts of Chibok girls

Boko Haram

The Presidency has finally opened up on the issue of Chibok Girls, saying that they do not know the whereabouts of the girls. you will recall that the President’s camp had earlier said during the campaign that he was contacted by the militant group who they said were willing to negotiate the release of the girls with him.

Well, it seems this wasn’t true.

The current administration has received a lot of criticism on the Chibok girls issue and the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu has said if the military had any clue as to the whereabouts of the abducted girls, they would have moved to rescue them.

“The President is conscious always about the fact that terrorism in Nigeria is part of a global phenomenon. Since coming to office, his response to it has been firm and well considered,” Shehu said in a statement.

“President Buhari will never make bogus promises or play to the gallery. It is misleading of anyone to preach that the Chibok girls are within an easy grasp. If the military under the President knew where they are held, they will bring the Chibok girls home today.

“The Presidency is open to renewed cooperation with the BBOG group, international bodies, religious groups, social workers, and all others who are assisting in the field to ensure that those who have so far been rescued from Boko Haram captivity are given the support they need to make a full recovery and be reintegrated fully into the society.”

Does this mean that we have lost the Chibok girls forever?
