President Muhammadu Buhari today received the 82 recently freed Chibok girls in at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa.
Buhari who received the schools girls who have been missing for three years expressed joy on their freedom and welcomed them back to the society.
Naija News obtained the statement from the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina and it reads:
This is a pleasant 2nd anniversary gift to the people of Nigeria.
I cannot express in a few words how happy I am to welcome our dear girls back to freedom.
On behalf of all Nigerians, I will like to share my joy with you, your parents, your relatives, friends and Government of Borno State on regaining your freedom.
The Federal Government will like to commend the Security Agencies, the Red Cross, local authorities, local and foreign NGOs and all those who contributed in one way or another to secure the release of our Chibok Girls.
Let me reassure Nigerians, especially relatives and friends of the remaining girls that the Federal Government will spare no effort to see that they and all other Nigerians who have been abducted safely regain their freedom.
Finally, I am very pleased to have personally met you and let me assure you that the Presidency will personally supervise the performance of those entrusted with your welfare and commitments made by the Federal Government on your health, education, security and general well-being.
No human being should go through this kind of ordeal. The security agencies and state governments should continue to provide special protection to educational institutions vulnerable to this kind of outrage especially in remote areas.
This administration is resolutely determined to safeguard the security of all Nigerians at all times.
Once again, I congratulate you and your parents on your safe return.
Meanwhile, President Buhari is expected to leave Nigeria for London tonight for a follow up medical check up.
