It is our hope that the release of more of the girls is imminent and that our nation remains vigilant in the face of the continued crisis in North East Nigeria.” “The release of the 21 girls is a testament to the perseverance of our men andWOMEN in uniform, the civilian joint task force and a clear indication that this government has been relentless in securing their release,” Saraki said, “Moving forward, we need to ensure that the girls that have been returned back to us are reunited with their families, and rehabilitated to become full members of our society.”

“We must also not take our foot off the gas, Nigerians must continue to be united and insistent on the safe return of the other girls that are still in the hands of Boko Haram,” he said. The Senate President restated the commitment of the 8th Senate to continue supporting the federal government to secure the release of the Chibok girls, highlighting the fact that their abduction still marks a dark notch in the history of the country. “On our part, the Nigerian Senate has been clear that we will continue to do everything within our powers to support efforts aimed at securing the release of the rest of the girls,” Saraki said.
