Buhari Tells CNN, Meeting Chibok Parents “On A Regular Basis, Not Good For His Emotional State”

President Muhammadu Buhari says meeting parents of the schoolgirls abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state, on a regular basis, is not good for his emotional state.

Lamenting the plight of the parents in an interview with Christine Amanpour, a CNN correspondent, Buhari said he could not imagine his own daughter in such situation.

“I saw the families as a group twice. The first time, they came to visit my wife. The second, they came as a group to see me, and the less I see them the better for my own emotional balance,” he said.

“I try to imagine my 14-year-old year old daughter missing for more than two years. I try to imagine what condition are they in. A lot of the fathers would rather see their graves, than imagine them under such condition.”

He also opposed the idea of showing a proof of life video to the parents, saying there was no point raising their hopes when the girls had not been rescued.
