We're negotiating release of Dapchi schoolgirls, says Buhari

We're negotiating release of Dapchi schoolgirls, says Buhari”

Receiving the American Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, at State House, Abuja, Monday, Mr. Buhari added that Nigeria was working with global organisations and negotiators, to ensure that the girls were released unharmed by their captors.

Parents of the remaining GGSS Chibok missing schoolgirls from Chibok LGA of Borno state are set to begin their journey tomorrow morning to Dapchi town to sympathize with the parents of the 110 missing GGSTC Dapchi schoolgirls abducted by boko Haram insurgents last month.

"But what we are cautioning countries is to look carefully, that the implications of the level of debts, the terms of the debts, and whether the arrangements around the local financing are intact creating jobs, local capacity or the projects being carried out by foreign labour being brought to your country".

In a statement by Femi Adesina who is the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, President Buhari also assured the U.S. of free and fair poll in 2019.

He commended Nigeria for the leadership role it has played in the Multinational Joint Task Force as the Lake Chad Basin Countries fight to lessen the influence and terrorist acts of Boko Haram and the Islamic State in West Africa, in their domains. "The same thing happened in 2013 when the military suddenly removed troops guarding the town and a week later Boko Haram went there to attack the town and the secondary school there killing 29 students", he reviewed.

"So, the United States is ready to engage and coordinate efforts as well".

With less than one year to the general elections, he promised to ensure free and fair polls.

Citing the recent abduction of the Dapchi girls as a case in point, the US Secretary assured of the United States' full support in the fight against terrorism.

"We hope that something can be worked out and they can secure the release of these girls quickly".

According to the top USA diplomat, the American government is creating other alternative financing mechanisms that are available for African nations, saying "we are developing mechanism that will also create alternative opportunities financing offer".

Excited, Buhari responded by saying moneys recovered from corrupt vices are being invested on development of infrastructure. "It was acknowledged immediately everything was being done and we were strategising".

"That was a situation where you have a classical military confrontation and Boko Haram were capturing territories, holding unto territories and hoisting flags".

"Now, there is a challenge with regards to sporadic suicides and bombings and of course largely, there is kidnapping of the girls".
