Buhari Tells Malala: Why We Cannot Disclose Details Of Negotiations With Boko Haram Malala
President Muhammadu Buhari has given reasons why the Federal Government cannot divulge the details of ongoing negotiations to secure the release of all the schoolgirls Boko Haram insurgents abducted from Chibok, Borno State.

The President, however, assured that the military, the State Security Service and other security agencies were intensifying their efforts to ensure freedom for all those in captivity.

President Buhari said this while responding to a letter written to him by the Co-Founder of the Malala Fund, Ms. Malala Yousafzai.

He insisted he could not divulge the details of ongoing negotiations to secure the release of the girls due to the sensitive nature of the negotiations, but however, reminded the Malala Fund of the doggedness, commitment and sincerity of the Nigerian Federal Government towards ensuring the safe return of the Chibok girls, and indeed all others still in captivity”.

In the letter quoted in a statement signed by Segun Adeyemi, SA to Hon Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and made available to DAILY POST, the President said the gallant troops of the Nigerian military had recently scored great victory by seizing control of the Sambisa Forest, the last stronghold of the Boko Haram elements who are responsible for the kidnap of the Chibok girls.

“In line with his pledge that Boko Haram will not be considered defeated without the rescue of the Chibok girls and all other innocent persons held hostage by the insurgents, the military, the State Security Service and the other security agencies are intensifying their efforts to ensure freedom for all those who remain in captivity.

“The Federal Government has taken over the responsibility for the personal, educational and professional goals and ambitions in life of the 21 Chibok girls who regained their freedom on 13 October 2016.

“They are being given comprehensive medical, nutritional and psychological care and support, and anyone who has seen them in recent times will attest to the fact that their reintegration back to the society is progressing well.

“The Federal Government believes that it is not too late for the girls to go back to school, and everything will be done to ensure that they continue the pursuit of their studies,” the statement added.

President Buhari, however, commended Ms. Malala for her continued caring disposition towards the release of the girls who remain in captivity, and the welfare of the girls who have regained their freedom, adding: “There is no better example of the fact that we are all linked by our common humanity.”
