The Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Students Affairs, Nasir Sai’du Adhama, has commended Nigerian troops for their successful operations in the rescue of two Chibok girls, Amina Ali and Serah Luka.
Adhama, who made the commendation at the State House, Abuja, said the development opens new vista of hope in the ongoing efforts to rescue the rest of abducted Chibok girls.
“We celebrate with the families of the rescued girls, and commend the gallantry of the Nigerian troops and the Civilian Joint Task Force in trying to end the insurgency in the North east of Nigeria,” he said.
In a release sent by his Media Aide, Gidado Yushau Shuaib, Adhama called on Nigerians to continue to give their support to the troops as government has intensified the search and rescue of the remaining girls.
He said that his office strongly warns against stigma or discrimination against the Chibok girls when they return.
Adhama also assured Nigerians of the federal government’s support to ensure the safety and rehabilitation of the rescued girls.
He said: “The continuation of education of the rescued and freed captives, which has been disrupted, will definitely be a priority. They must be enabled to go back to school and this will be some of the majority priorities.”
He joined Nigerians and well-wishers in the international community to pray for the safe return of other abducted women and children.
Adhama added that the development “would strengthen our collective belief that our missing Chibok girls that are still held hostage will eventually be rescued.”
