Nigeria?s President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday indicated there is hope the over 200 schoolgirls abducted from their hostel in Government Secondary School, Chibok, in Borno State will be rescued.

The girls were abducted in April 2014 while waiting to sit for their final examinations.



Mr. Jonathan, during a media chat with a panel of journalists in Abuja said ?the story (of the Chibok girls) will be better? in a few weeks.
Asking that additional time be given to the government to rescue the girls alive, the president said there is ?more? hope to rescue the abducted girl especially with the collaboration from neighbouring countries.

?I believe the story of the Chibok girls will be better now that we are working with Niger, Cameroun and Chad,? Mr. Jonathan said.

Mr. Jonathan reacted to criticisms that he ignored the abduction once it was made known and went dancing at his party?s rally, saying, ?I did not go partying when the Chibok girls were abducted.?

President Goodluck Jonathan only reacted to the news of the kidnap of the girls three weeks after the incident. He then set up a presidential fact-finding committee to investigate whether the girls were really abducted.

The committee, led by Ibrahim Sabo, in its report submitted in June 2014 confirmed the abduction of 276 girls. The report also said that out of the 276 girls abducted, 57 managed to escape from the Boko Haram terrorist group.

The terrorist popularly known as Boko Haram in their attempt to Islamize Nigeria have killed over 13, 000 people, displaced many others and also destroyed lots of property in the North Eastern part of Nigeria, especially, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.

The Nigerian government has entered an agreement with its bordering countries ? Chad, Niger and Cameroun ? through a Multi-National Joint Task Force, MNJTF, headquartered in Baga, Borno State, to fight terrorism which has been ravaging the country.

The terrorists have in their quest, captured many communities in the region, while the Nigerian military have also repelled some of their attacks.
