Buhari Confirms Fraudsters Asking For Money For Release Of Chibok Girls

Buhari recieves BishopsPresident Muhammadu Buhari has confirmed that some fraudsters are all over the place now, asking for money to negotiate the release of over 200 students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state, who were abducted from their school premises by members of Boko Haram in April 2014.
The President made it clear that he would not fall flat for the antics of such fraudsters even though the rescue and safe return of the girls remains a top priority of his administration.
Buhari, who received the Primate and Archbishops of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday, said that his administration will continue to insist on a thorough authentication of the identities and bona fides of any persons or groups claiming to have custody of the girls before entering into negotiations with them.
The President assured the Anglican Bishops of his steadfast commitment to the rescue of the Chibok Girls, saying that their safe return will be one of his greatest
fulfillments in office as President.
He also assured the clerics that the Federal Government will give maximum attention to the clean-up of Ogoniland which was launched yesterday.
‘‘We inherited the United Nations Environmental Project report from the previous administration. We decided it needed urgent attention, in spite of the economic crunch, because of our concern for the welfare and environmental comfort of the people of Ogoniland.”
Earlier, the Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh pledged the support of the church in helping the Federal Government to achieve its objectives of improving security and the welfare of Nigerians. [myad]
