President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, on Wednesday reassured parents of schoolgirls of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 that they remain on the minds of the government.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement, noted that the government is working on securing the release of the schoolgirls.
“No one is giving up hope here.
“Efforts to secure their release through various channels and activities of the security and intelligence agencies remain on course.
“The recent decisive push by the military against the terrorists gives hope that a breakthrough is possible and could happen anytime soon.”
The Presidency however asked for support, understanding and prayers for the military as they discharge what it called “their historic mandate to quickly finish off the insurgency war and free all citizens held hostage.”
