President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that the return of over 200 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamist sect, Boko Haram, 626 days ago is the “most worrying issue to hi government”.
Buhari who stated this in Abuja on Friday in an audience with Women In Politics Forum (WIPF) said the fight for the return of the Chibok girls is ongoing and “continues to be a most worrying issue” to his government.
He, however, emphasised that the administration would do all within its powers in making the best efforts to secure their freedom.
The president acknowledged the case made by the WIPF for better representation of women in his government and assured that women would fare well in the composition of parastatal agencies and their boards in the first quarter of this year.
He also defended the records of the administration in response to criticism that it was slow, saying that steps must be taken with caution to avoid mistakes.
“People say we are slow. We are trying to change structures put in place by our predecessors in office for 16 years. If we hurry it, we will make mistakes. That will be a disaster,” he said.
