Nigeria’s President Jonathan To Meet Families Of Kidnapped Chibok Girls Next Tuesday

Some of the demands are as follows:That the federal government goes into immediate negotiation with the Boko Haram sect with a view to securing the safe return of the girls.Immediate establishment of a rehabilitation centre at Chibok to address psychological, medical and traumatic effects of the abduction on parents, escaped and yet-to-be rescued girls and the Chibok community.Reconstruction of Government Secondary school, Chibok, and the building of another secondary school within the Chibok community, considering the huge number of over-500 students in one class.Stationing of an army battalion at Chibok town so as to provide the necessary security to protect the Chibok community and its environs.Construction of the 40km Mbalala-Chibok-Damboa federal road, which has been on the drawing board for over 20 years, to enhance immediate and fast response to emergency occurrences.”Provision of relief materials to the suffering people of Chibok and those who relocated to Chibok town from adjoining villages and local governments.”An earlier meeting with the girls and their families, which was organized by Levick, Washington-based PR firm, was cancelled by the parents, forcing the presidency to claim that the cancellation was the handiwork of opposition and the #BringBAckOurGirls movement.
