The Federal Government has confirmed that it was yet to seal any ceasefire deal with the Boko Haram sect on the fate of the abducted Chibok girls.

It, however, lamented that the media misinterpreted it to the public.

Governor Godswill Akpabio made this disclosure while briefing State House correspondents on the outcome of the meeting presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan.

Akpabio was latter joined at the briefing by his Edo state counterpart, Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Idris Wada of Kogi State.

The governor noted that the council was briefed by the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), on the efforts being made to rescue the schoolgirls.

He said, ?The NSA was of the opinion that high level contact with the Republic of Chad was made and that some persons who acted on behalf of Boko Haram and who claimed to have authority also had discussions with them and there are some Nigerian officials with them.

?Of course, no agreement has been reached yet; it is just that the press probably misunderstood what was reported, the discussions are ongoing.

?What came out of the NSA?s briefings was that the President will do everything possible to ensure the release of those young girls and to ensure protection of lives and property.

?That will include dialogue where you can have the people to dialogue with, because you cannot dialogue with people that are faceless and therefore, every opportunity must be explored to ensure that peace return to the region.?

He added that the President was on course, assuring that sooner or later, Nigerians would hear good news.

?There are some instances in which countries had to contend with insurgency for years, but in the case of Nigeria, we said we must find a practical means of bringing insurgency to an end in the shortest possible time so that Nigerians can sleep with their two eyes closed?, he added.
