Parents of the remaining Chibok schoolgirls in Boko Haram’s captivity have expressed worry that President Muhammadu Buhari has not yet sent a delegation to console them as he did for the mother of Leah Sharibu, the only remaining Dapchi schoolgirl abducted by the sect.
The chairman of Chibok Parents Association, Yakubu Nkenke, told Daily Trust yesterday, that the parents were anxious to hear directly from Buhari, not from the media.
He said although the parents were grateful to the federal government for negotiating the release of 112 girls and rescue of four others, sending a delegation to Chibok would enable them to interface with the government.
“There is need for President Muhammadu Buhari to send some representatives to Chibok, if he cannot come himself. This will give the parents of the still missing girls a sense of belonging and solidarity from the federal government.
“I just had meeting with the parents. They were worried that if Buhari could send officials to Dapchi to console the parents of Leah, why not send another delegation to parents of more than 100 girls in Chibok?”
