Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the freedom of the rest of the Chibok girls still in Boko Haram captivity and Leah Sharibu, the Christian girl still held by the insurgents before the general election.
Dogara and other members of the House were reportedly embittered as they debated a motion on the fate of the Chibok girls yesterday.
The house noted that, it was embarrassing that, four years on, the government was unable to rescue the girls from Boko Haram adding that government’s success in negotiating the release of the majority of the Dapchi schoolgirls would be rated as “nothing,” so long as the last girl, Leah Sharibu, remained in captivity.
Dogara urged the government to make the rescue of the girls its top priority ahead of the 2019 polls.
