Borno to relocate Chibok girls to other states

The Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, has promised to relocate the abducted Chibok schoolgirls to other parts of the country to complete their secondary school education after their release.

He said this when the Chairman, Chibok Local Government, Mr. Baana Lawan, led the parents of the abducted schoolgirls to his office on Monday.

The governor said the state government would sponsor all the girls to schools in Abuja, Kano, Lagos, Kaduna or any other states of the country to complete their secondary school education.

Shettima said, “It is mandatory for the state government to ensure the speedy return or release of the girls and it is the sole responsibility of government to see that these our children are back home without politicising the matter.

“This is not politics, there is no need to play politics with the abduction of these children. We have children and we know what it is for these girls to be missing,” he said.
