Senate leader, Ali Ndume has urged the Federal government to make good its pledge of rehabilitating the just released Chibok girls insisting that the girls need special attention.
After spending over one thousand days in the captivity of Boko haram who captured them in their school at the sleepy community of Chibok, 21 of the Chibok girls were released on Friday.
Ndume who is the Senator representing Borno South senatorial district also applauded LEADERSHIP Newspapers Group Limited for consistently reporting the issue of missing chibok girls.
In a telephone interview with LEADERSHIP Sunday, Ndume said, “we are so excited and grateful to Nigerians, especially LEADERSHIP Newspaper for consistent support to the extent that it dedicated a page and has been in the forefront of reminding the world and the government about the girls”.
Continuing, Ndume said, “we hope government will rehabilitate these girls because the girls now need special attention because of the trauma they have gone through for close to one thousand days. The government should therefore, stick to her promise to take care of them”
He appealed to the security agencies to sustain the pace and ensure total return of the remaining girls just as he enjoined Nigerians to intensify prayers and support government efforts in that direction.
“Government has made efforts and it has started yielding result.
