Muhammadu Buhari has told Nigerians and the international community that he is very committed to securing the freedom of all children and other victims who have fallen prey to terrorism in Nigeria.
In a recent statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, PMB vowed to stop the war on kids affected by armed conflicts in the country.
According to him, he has already been freeing some of the affected persons and he praises the Multinational Joint Task Force for integrating the released Chibok and Dapchi girls into our society.
He added that he will not stop until every Nigerian kid or adult is free from Boko Haram.
His words, “A number of school girls from Chibok and Dapchi earlier abducted by Boko Haram have regained their freedom.
”We commend the gallant efforts of the Multinational Joint Task Force and the partners in supporting the reintegration of the girls.
”Let me categorically reassure you of the steadfast commitment of the Government of Nigeria to ensure the freedom of all kidnapped children from the shackles of Boko Haram.
”We will not relent until every child, boy, or girl, every Nigerian adult in custody of Boko Haram, is freed!.”
”It is for this reason that the Nigerian government has severally condemned, and is combating frontally the dreadful activities of terrorist groups like Boko Haram and the so-called Islamic State.
”Of course, the severity of these grave violations varies from country to country.
”The incidence of a single violation of children rights in any country is an indelible dent on the African consciousness and is to be deplored and condemned.”
”To stem, the tide of out-of-school children Nigeria embarked on an all-inclusive reconstruction of schools vandalized by the ravaging terrorist activities of Boko Haram while returning children are rehabilitated and reintegrated into society.
”Our Nomadic Education policy is also being implemented to reduce the number of out-of-school children. We have also prioritized de-radicalisation and demobilisation of ex-combatant children of Boko Haram insurgents.”
