Some parents of the missing Chibok girls have said that they are yet to receive the money donated to them by Mrs Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Mrs Buhari, in May 2016, donated the sum of N30 million to the Chibok parents and N25 million to the parents of the Buni Yadi schoolboys, who were killed in a 2015 explosion.

"We only hear that something has been given and we have been waiting endlessly for it to get to us. Will it come today or the next day? This has always been the case, whereas the assistance may never get to us,” one parent, Ladi Lawan Zannah, told Punch.

“The only thing we have ever got was two pairs of wrapper and N5,000 which accompanied it. If the money was released, it hasn’t reached us. The N5,000 I talked about with the wrapper was given to us during the second anniversary prayers of our missing daughter’s,” she added.

 “Some people have been making money out of our grief. Never at any time has any of these officials who have gone to meet with the government on our behalf, either come back to brief us or revealed to us the outcome of their meeting,” another parent, Ayama Pogu, added.

Mrs Buhari made the donation after raising the funds from the sale of her book, “The Essentials of Beauty Therapy: A Complete Guide for Beauty Therapy” which was launched on Thursday, April 14.
