At the meeting, the president welcomed the girls in the capital city of Abuja and said: "I can not express in a few words how happy I am to welcome our dear girls back to freedom".
The Boko Haram sect released 82 Chibok girls in a deal that reportedly saw the Federal Government swapping prisoners for the students.
"The party particularly commends President Buhari for his tenacity and dedication in ensuring the safe return of the Chibok girls who were abducted in 2014".
He said the current administration was averse to propaganda, adding that it was diligently working hard to put the country on the path of growth and development.
An unknown number of girls kidnapped from their Nigerian boarding school by jihadists three years ago have been released, a government official said Saturday.
The government secured the release with mediation by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
"After lengthy negotiations, our security agencies have taken back these girls, in exchange for some Boko Haram suspects held by the authorities". "Their release is tantamount to releasing them to resume their war against society", Dayo Adeyeye, spokesperson of the faction said.Читайте также: Assange Rape Inquiry Is Dropped but His Legal Problems Remain Enormous
Following the weekend release, 113 Chibok schoolgirls remain missing.
But the groundswell eventually waned and the Associated Press reports, numerous girls were forced into marriages with their captors and others were feared to have been forced into suicide bombing missions.
Their release will be a boost for Buhari, a former military ruler who made crushing the Boko Haram insurgency a major pillar of his election campaign in 2015. Neither Nigeria's government nor Boko Haram, which has links to the Islamic State group, gave details about the exchange.
Nigeria's presidency released the names of the 82 Chibok schoolgirls newly freed from Boko Haram extremists which parents anxiously scoured to see if their daughters were released three years after their capture.
"The Boko haram leaders said as the negotiation continue, no girl will be forced to renounce "her husband" the same way they were not compelled to renounce their faith in the last three years", he said.
Two days after the release of additional 82 girls kidnapped from GGSS Chibok in Borno State, credible sources told the Daily Trust yesterday that the third part of negotiations for release of more of girls has commenced.
Boko Haram seized a total of 276 girls in the 2014 abduction. Others have escaped or been rescued, but 195 were believed to be still in captivity before this release. "Our hopes and expectations are high as we look forward to this news being true and confirmed", the campaign said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
