President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday promised that the 21 released Chibok girls will be given adequate medical, nutritional and psychological care and support by the Federal Government.
Buhari said this when he received the girls at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said the girls have seen the worst the world had to offer.
“These dear daughters of ours have seen the worst that the world has to offer. It is now time for them to experience the best that the world can do for them. The government and all Nigerians must encourage them to achieve their desired ambitions,” the President said.
He said the government will assume responsibility for their education and ambitions.
He added, “Aside from rescuing them, we are assuming the responsibility for their personal, educational and professional goals and ambitions in life.
“Obviously, it is not late for the girls to go back to school and continue the pursuit of their studies.
“The Federal Government appreciates the patience and understanding of the parents of all the abducted Chibok girls.
“We equally thank Nigerians and the international community for their support and prayers, and for never losing confidence in our ability to secure the safe release of our girls.”
