Nigeria president, Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that there will be no rest for him or the Nigerian security agencies until all schoolgirls kidnapped in Chibok and Dapchi are reunited with their families.

President Buhari said this during his official visit to Yobe State on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 as part of his tour of states most affected by violence and insecurity.

“There will be no rest till the last girl, whether from Chibok and Dapchi, is released. The girls, like all our citizens, must enjoy unhindered freedom and pursue their legitimate aspirations,” President Buhari said.

Addressing residents of Yobe, Buhari further said: “I am here in Yobe State today, to express my sincere sympathies with the parents, families, the Government and the entire people of Yobe State whose daughters were callously abducted by unrepentant terrorists.

"Since this ugly incident happened, I have not left any stone unturned in making sure that the girls are rescued. I have ordered the Service Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to take direct charge and brief me on a daily basis on the efforts to bring back the girls.

"Furthermore, the government is partnering with the International Community and organizations including our neighbours to ensure that these girls are safely returned. Just recently, I reiterated our resolve to negotiate for the unconditional release of the girls. This is borne out of this administration’s conviction that, doing so is safer devoid of risks and will not endanger the lives of our young girls who are in harm’s way."

The President also said since the inception of his administration, the government has remained resolute in the fight against terrorism and Boko Haram insurgents saying his government has explored various strategies including regional and international collaborations to exterminate terror.
