Nigeria’s President has again renewed his commitment to the rescue of the Chibok girls, saying government will not give up in the search.

Commenting on this in his Twitter handle on Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari paid glowing tributes to the military for their efforts in the war against insurgency in Nigeria’s northeast.

Our gallant troops in the Northeast have already rescued thousands of people. We will never give up on the Chibok girls.— Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) August 28, 2016

The President also said he is willing to swap Boko Haram prisoners for the Chibok girls.

But that is on condition that they are able to list those they want released and then come out to discuss with the Federal Government.

He says the Federal Government will want the girls out safe without any harm done to them.

I reiterated it in Nairobi, that we want our Chibok girls safe, we want them out. We’re doing all we can to reunite them with their families— Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) August 28, 2016

Recently, the Bring Back Our Girls campaigners had called on the President to accept the swap of the Boko Haram prisoners for the Chibok girls who were kidnapped in Borno State two years ago.

The President was in Nairobi, Kenya for the African economic summit which dwells on diversification and advancement of African economies.
