IBB hails Buhari over release of Chibok girls

Former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, has hailed the recent release of 21 Chibok girls from captivity.
He described the development as a signal of hope for the nation.
Babangida, who rejoiced with the families, people of Nigeria and the Federal Government over the release of the abducted Chibok girls, said their release was an indication that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government was committed to ensuring safe release of all the abducted girls.
“It is a thing of joy for the girls to have been reunited with their families after being taken away in such painful and abrupt manner for over two and a half years,” he said.
Speaking with newsmen at his Uphill Residence in Minna, yesterday, the former military president praised President Buhari’s effort towards the freedom of the girls.
According to him, Buhari has proven that he is a man of his words.
He asked the Federal Government, security agencies and other partners to fasten negotiations to free the remaining girls and rehabilitate them from the psychological trauma they might have suffered in the last two and a half years.
The former military president restated his belief in the professional capability of the Nigerian armed forces and other security agencies to ensure that an end was put to the activities of the Boko Haram sect completely.
He maintained that the Nigerian armed forces had the training and professional background to end all forms of security threat to the nation such as kidnappings, armed robbery, cattle rustling, farmers/herdsmen clashes and other forms of vandalism.
Babangida further called on all Nigerians to offer all forms of assistance to the released Chibok girls, so that they could overcome the mental, physical and psychological trauma they must have gone through over the past two and a half years.
