The rescue of 21 of the Chibok girls is a hopeful development. Even it will shock a lot of Nigerians who didn’t believe the girls were truly kidnapped. I am particularly happy for their parents. But Buhari shouldn’t stop at that, he should continue his search for the rest. If he can achieve that before the end of this year, the whole country will be thrown into wide jubilation.”

I am sure a lot of Nigerians are happy now that gradually, we’re getting there concerning the rescue of the girls fully. Last time, two were rescued and 21 today. I am sure more will still be rescued before the end of this year. But to me, there shouldn’t be any celebration now until the rest are rescued and reunited with their parents. But as it’s now, we should commend Buhari and the Nigerian Army for the efforts so far.
