President Muhammadu Buhari-led government on Friday affirmed its commitment to rescue Chibok and Dapchi girls.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed this during a press briefing on Friday.
Mohammed congratulated the parents and guardians of the students of Government Science Secondary School following their release on Thursday.
The Minister further stated the abduction of the Schoolboys makes it the second such would happen under the Buhari administration.
The Minister noted that just like the Kankara schoolboys, all but one of the kidnapped schoolgirls from Dapchi, Leah Sharibu, were rescued unharmed.
He recalled that in 2014, 276 schoolgirls were abducted by terrorists in Chibok, Borno State, but government had been able to rescue over 100.
“Each time this has happened, we have always accepted responsibility, rather than being in denial.”
“We will not relent until all those who remain missing in Chibok and Dapchi and reunited with their families.”
“The reactions in certain quarters to the Kankara incident was shameful. Some Nigerians went as far as denigrating their government and country in the most uncouth and irresponsible manner.”
“They simply threw decorum to the wind and allowed their emotions to take a better part of them. We hope the naysayers have learnt their lessons.”
“And we hope those who have started trading and politicking with the hashtag ‘BringBackOurBoys’ can now go home…”
