Release of Chibok girls excites US

"The release of the Chibok Girls might appear to have delayed but we take cognizance of the fact that all hopes were lost in the months after their abduction until the coming of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration".

TheNewsGuru.com reports that the President's wife, Aisha Buhari met some of the released girls on Wednesday.

In spite of that Grace is "praying to God that is, I am praying that may God help us maybe my niece she is among those girls".

"So the moment of the celebration of the return of the girls is not lost on the remaining girls, we urge the Federal Government to continue to work with the same effort to negotiate the release of the girls still in captivity", Rev Ugolor said.

"As a lay person, not as a medical doctor, I feel that medically too they are not too bad", she added.

Observers and local media link the release of the girls to the President's nearly immediate departure for the United Kingdom where he recently spent nearly two months receiving unspecified medical treatment.

"I started comparing the list with the one that I have and I have seen a good number of the names that matched the list I have, so I believe that they are the Chibok girls", Tsambido stated. They are among thousands kidnapped by Boko Haram during its eight-year insurgency that has left thousands dead and driven millions from their homes.

"We're very careful who we grant access to #Chibokgirls".

The decision to quit the Indian market comes as a result of continuously falling sales figures and rising operational losses. India president and managing director Kaher Kazem said,"I can now confirm that GM India is making significant changes".

Twenty-four of the 220 girls abducted from their school in Chibok - including 21 released by the jihadists in October and three who escaped or were rescued - will resume their education, the president's spokesman said.

The released girls are now in the care of the government's women's affairs ministry. The government freed five top Boko Haram commanders in the deal, according to Sen.

"We are negotiating seriously to have the rest of the ChibokGirls released". Of the 276 girls originally snatched in April 2014, 113 are still held captive.

"We can't imagine the kinds of abuses they might have been exposed to".

Activists and parents of the girls say they have been frustrated by a lack of contact and clarity about their future.

When he received the girls, President Buhari said it was his government's second anniversary gift to Nigeria.

Human rights groups have criticized the government for keeping them so long in the capital, far from their homes.

"The government of Nigeria and other stakeholders must ensure that the services these girls need, including psycho-social and other health services and information on livelihood opportunities, as well as access to remedies, are available" said the group of special rapporteurs.
