cheque to parents of Chibok school girls and
Buni Yadi school boys, who were abducted
and murdered respectively by Boko Haram.

Mrs. Buhari presented a cheque of N30
million to parents of the Chibok girls and
N25 million cheque to parents of the Buni
Yadi boys.

She said the presentation of the cheque was
part of her promise that proceeds from the
book she launched on “Essentials of Beauty
Therapy’’ would be used to empower parents
of the Chibok girls and Buni Yadi boys.

She said,

“The day I launched my book, I promised that the proceed will be used to empower the parents of missing Chibok girls and the Buni Yadi boys.

“And I am here today to present a cheque of N30 million to empower the parents of the girls and also a cheque of N25 million to empower the parents of the murdered Bunu Yadi boys.”

Mrs. Buhari said the rest of the proceed
would be used to take care of Internally
Displaced malnourished children. Vice President Yemi Osibanjo’s wife,Dolapo,commended Mrs. Buhari for the gesture, saying “this shows the quality of a good leader”.

On her part, Asabe Bashir, member, House of
Representatives for Gwoza and Damboa constituency, commended the Federal Government for putting more efforts toward
finding the missing girls.

She said

“government attached great
importance to the issue of Chibok girls and
security of the country and that is why people
could move around freely in the country
today”.

She said the missing Chibok girls case was a
global issue as the whole world was involved
to ensured that they were found and reunited with their parents.

The Chairman of Abducted Chibok Girls
Parents, Yakubu Nkeki, said 19 of the more
than 200 parents of the missing Chibok girls
had died.

He urged the government to put extra effort
to get back the girls soon in good health, saying “we, the parents of the girls are not happy about the situation as over two years now we didn’t hear anything about their
whereabouts”.

He, however, commended the government for all efforts toward finding the girls and bringing peace to the North East as many in the region had returned home, adding that they still believe that the girls are alive.

“Now, we can sleep in our houses peacefully without any attack by the insurgents in the Chibok area. This is a clear indication that insurgency will soon come to an end,’’
he said.

The wife of the vice president received the cheque on behalf of the parent of the Chibok girls, while the Minister for State, Foreign Affairs, Khadijat Bukar, received the cheque
on behalf of the parents of the Buni Yadi boys.
