Nigeria's President Reportedly Negotiates Release Of Abducted Schoolgirls

Nigeria's President Reportedly Negotiates Release Of Abducted Schoolgirls

He also said that the president would hold a meeting with all relevant stakeholders and meet with the parents of the abducted Dapchi schoolgirls.

President Buhari was in Dapchi to meet with the Parents of the abducted Girls of the GGSTC.

The chairman, who encouraged government to go for dialogue to hasten return of the girls, said "the fact that the insurgents provide room for negotiation gives us hope for safe return of our daughters".

When the Chibok Girls were kidnapped, the Jonathan administration did not "look the other way" as President Buhari claims and historical records prove this. No, he has not. The Federal Government had earlier sent a delegation of senior officials to visit the Governor and the parents of the girls to re-assure them of the measures the government is taking as well as have an on-the-spot-assessment of the incident.

Between a President who calls an emergency meeting after Chibok and a President who canceled an important meeting so he could attend an economic conference, who can be described as looking the other way?

The President said he has ordered the re-strengthening of joint operations by the relevant agencies to coordinate the rescue mission apart from partnering with worldwide communities and organizations including neighbouring countries to ensure the girls are safely returned.

Buhari told the audience Boko Haram had controlled large parts of the northeast before the crackdown.

Again, three weeks ago, Chief Mike Okiro, the head of the Police Service Commission, revealed that under President Muhammadu Buhari, 150,000 police men are guarding "big men" instead of performing core police duties.

President Buhari tweeted about the mass kidnapping on March 2, condemning Boko Haram for it's "cowardly attacks".

Nigeria's presidency said on Monday it plans to negotiate for the release of 110 girls abducted from a school in the northeastern town of Dapchi last month, rather than use a military operation to free them by force.

That marked a shift from past statements when he had said Boko Haram had been totally defeated.
