We Shall Return Remaining Chibok Girls Back Home – Osinbajo

Nigeria’s Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to securing the release of the remaining abducted Chibok girls.

Osinbajo stated this in Abuja while playing host to a delegation of girl child rights advocates from various schools in Abuja, who were led by officials from the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Save the Children International and the UNFPA on Wednesday, as part of the activities to mark the International Day of the Girl Child.

This is contained in a press statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the vice-president on media and publicity, on Wednesday.

“We are sending a clear message to the rest of the world that such criminal acts of abduction would not be condoned in the country.

“We want to be able to challenge men and women all over the world about this sort of behaviour, and this is one of the reasons why we are advocating that this kind of conduct must be met with the greatest possible objection and force.

“It is very important for us that those girls are returned; anyone who has a friend or child or anyone among the girls recognises that girls are more vulnerable than men, especially when they have been abducted by men stronger and older than themselves, and held in captivity for so long.
