The minister said other Chibok girls who were earlier released had improved on the their spoken English.
Aisha Alhassan, the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development stated this on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, when she received the girls.
The minister noted that the 24 Chibok girls who were released in 2016 have improved on the their spoken English.
“I thank the teachers and vocational trainers for training them,” she said.
“The 24 girls who could not speak good English, can now speak good English and I am sure by the time they handle the new ones (82), they will also speak good English and will be able to pass JAMB, WASSCE and NECO when they go back to school.”
Alhassan stated that by September, the rehabilitation of all the girls would have been completed and they would be enrolled in school.
She said since the girls had missed three years of school, they would need to take remedial classes.
“We are going to keep them till the school year starts in September. Dr. Anne (Okoroafor) said they are both medically and psychologically stable.
"The therapy will go on for four months till September when they will be enrolled in school. Therefore, the programme will last from now till September when they would be in school. By then, they would have overcome the trauma,” she added.
The minister said the girls would be taught handcrafts, including sewing and baking.
