The presidency has released a statement
urging the advocacy group of the missing
Chibok school girls, Bring Back Our Girls, not
to give up on efforts by the government to
rescue the missing girls. Read the statement
signed by Senior Special Assistant to President
Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba
after the cut…
The BringBackOurGirls group claims in a
recent statement that President Muhammadu
Buhari has “broken all promises” made to the
group about rescuing the missing Chibok girls
and that the government had been
“lackadaisical” in the rescue mission. The
Presidency will like to appeal to the officials
and members of the Bring Back Our Girls
(BBOG) campaign group, not to waver in their
support for the government in the war against
terrorism and in the ongoing effort to free all
Nigerian citizens taken captive by the Boko
Haram terrorist group.
The past year of this administration has seen
the Nigerian military step up bombardment of
the Sambisa Forest, a stronghold of the Boko
Haram terrorist group, leading to the capture
of hundreds of insurgents.
Also, records from the Army show the rescue
of no fewer than 15,000 captives, mostly
women and children from the terrorists from
February to date. In addition, dozens of
communities that were previously under the
control of the terrorists have been liberated,
allowing thousands of previously displaced
citizens to return home and resume their
normal lives.
Thousands of these women and children freed
from captivity have also been reunited with
their families. This huge number of rescued
women and children may not be prominent
names, and their disappearance may not have
generated any massive media attention and
campaign.
However, their liberation is just as important
as that of every other missing woman and
child, and a testament to the devotion of our
military personnel who daily risk life and limb
in the effort to bring back every Nigerian
citizen kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists.
Along with these ongoing efforts to rid our
country of terrorists and terrorism, the
Nigerian government is focused on the
welfare and rehabilitation of rescued
Nigerians, many of whom were found in a
state of severe malnutrition and illness.
While their intentions are honourable,
perhaps the BBOG leadership have not
considered the collateral damage which must
inevitably follow its riveting and dispiriting
claim that the President has “broken all
promises” allegedly made to the group on this
issue. Or that he has been “lackadaisical” in
rescuing the Chibok girls. The Federal
Government’s focus has always been to free
the Chibok girls alive and unharmed.
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.
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 renew 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 society.
Groups such as the BBOG can also lend a
helping hand to military families whose losses
need to be appreciated and focused upon.
The life of every single Nigerian matters to
this government and the security agencies,
under the command of President Buhari, will
continue to exert all its powers to ensure that
every Nigerian is safe from the brutality of
terrorists and terrorism.
