Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan has said 106 Chibok girls will begin school in two weeks after reuniting with their parents and friends in their hometown.
The minister disclosed this at a send-off party organised in honour of the girls in Abuja on Wednesday night.
The girls will commence a special foundation programme at American University in Yola, Adamawa state.
On the fate of the remaining schoolgirls in captivity, Alhassan assured Nigerians that they would be released because negotiation was in progress.
“The good news is that very soon I assure you that by the grace of God we will have our remaining girls released. That is to say negotiation is still on and we will see light at the end of tunnel and very soon we will have our remaining daughters back,” she said.
