President Muhammadu Buhari and his wife, Aisha, on Friday in Abuja met with the mothers of the missing Chibok Girls to re assure them of the government’s determination to rescue the girls.

The meeting was at the instance of the wife of the President.

Addressing State House Correspondents after the meeting, the wife of the Vice President,  Dolapo Osinbajo, said the meeting was a dream accomplished.

“Her Excellency, Hajia Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has for very many months wanted to visit Chibok. She also wanted to meet with the mothers. So today we had an opportunity for them to meet face to face. We had two of the mothers who still had their daughters missing after a year. And Hajia being a mother, she met with them, she held them, they cried everybody cried; and whatever a mother would do is to say wait I want you to see your father and see what your father will do,” Osinbajo said.

“So we are all extremely overwhelmed that at this time when the President is so busy doing so much he had time to meet with the women from Chibok. He spoke with them in English, spoke to them in Hausa and he explained to them how he keeps saying to everyone: put yourself in their place. So today we have had the opportunity for the President and Hajia to show that truly they are a father and a mother for the nation. And for that we are glad.’’

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Chibok girls were abducted from their school in Chibok, Borno, by the Boko Haram terrorists on April 14, 2014.

The abduction raised both local and international outrage and drew the attention of the international community to the bitter experiences of victims of the terrorist organization, Boko Haram.

    I pray ? these girls be found!
    If it has been a hoax let the perpetuators be shamed!
    Not impressed a very influential Northern leader as Aisha and the President are meeting them the first time! All these tears where have you been?
    How can such happen in the West and late Gani ,Tinubu,would wait until they become president to visit the parents? Or Ojukwu, will wait in SE?
    Attackers reason it out first before attacking.

      Where is Aunty Obi? Ministerial nominations are in order. The Evil Men/Women do. Unfortunately, the self serving mourners have ensured that all other missing human beings in the NE are completely forgotten all in the quest for stomach infrastructure. 300+ women and children hv been rescued from Sambisa yet, no hint of the “Chibok girls” Not even one! No one saw them. This is baffling indeed and the silence is deafening.

      May God continue to console all Mothers who have truly lost children to this menace.

    Biggest election winning point in the history of Nigeria!
    If the likes of Buhari had genuinely assisted the govt in stopping this menace in the North all these wouldn’t have been. Like shiek Gumi said the North went silent and all these went wrong! Too bad, after the political point have been scored the girls are still missing. The entire region needed to cooperate before it went out if hand. Shettima ought to be questioned ICC as to how he defiled the Federal govt warning on that night. Mrs Osibajo nice speech but don’t act unimportant your self for you are the genuine one not PMB and wife who has been in the North but failed in their duty.
    All these tears are belated.

      What you’re doing is akin to blaming New York for failing to stop 9/11. Do I need to an “ELI5” version of what federalism is for you??

      Its not enough that private citizens must provide their own power and water, they must provide their own security now??? I hope you’re being paid and not sincere.

    PMB should strengthen effort on the rescue and investigation of Chibok girls and boko haram as a course. General security need to tighten and develop in this country. A repeat of Chibok girls or kidnapping mustn’t happen again. That’s the vision

    Its a good step from Aisha. At least it will give them hope that their daughters would be found one day

    Okay let me be the one to rip off the bandage. Its been more than a year. The girls are probably dead, the media spotlight is preventing them from moving on. In Nigeria far much more than the Chibok girls have died from insurgency and kidnapping but as long as the media circus continues the parents will never heal.

    Yes if it were my children I would have given up hope and started moving to get my life together after they’d been missing for one year. I’m pragmatic like that.
