Aisha Buhari Urges Rescued Chibok Girls To Rise Above Their Fears

Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari has asked the eighty two recently released Chibok school girls to try their best to be strong and try and forget their ordeal and go on with their education.
Mrs Buhari was speaking when she visited the girls at their location in Abuja, to have a talk with them.

She said strong prayers of the nation had kept them and she believed that the one hundred and thirteen girls still in captivity would soon be released. She further advised the girls that in addition to their education, they should also learn a trade as no knowledge is lost.

Speaking further, Mrs Buhari enlightened them on all the efforts that had been put into negotiating their release as well as the meetings that she personally held with their parents as well as the financial consideration raised for them and given to their parents to ease the pain, from her book launch.
The President’s wife praised all the agencies and individuals that were involved in their release.
Mrs Anne Okarafor in whose care and guidance the girls were placed, informed Mrs Buhari that medical intervention for the girls has begun and physiotherapy, psychological analysis and surgical intervention were on for the affected ones.
