The co-covener of the #BringBackOurGirls group (BBOG), Obiageli Ezekwesili, has urged the federal government to expedite action in rescuing the remaining 197 Chibok girls and bring them home so that they will also celebrate with the rest of the girls and their families.
Ezekwesili, in her tweeter handle, urged the government to hurry up with the rescue of the remaining girls so that the celebration day will come quickly.
“Pres @MBuhari, can the day of celebration also please com quickly for the remaining #197 of our girls,” she tweeted.
Meanwhile, the #BBOG group has also called on the federal government to begin the rehabilitation, restoration and reintegration of the 21 abducted Chibok school girls that were released recently.
It added that the rescue of the girls was not enough but that government should strive to make sure that there was an effective and credible identification, rehabilitation (physical and psychosocial), resettlement and reintegration.
“We wish to again recommend the use of the instrument of Verification, Authentication and Rehabilitation System (VARS) which our movement developed and had twice at our meeting with our President offered for Federal Government use. VARS is a process that can help achieve a most effective and credible identification, rehabilitation (physical and psychosocial), resettlement and reintegration of our released girls in a systematic and structured manner.
“’Our movement is very supportive of an immediate commencement of the programme for the physical, mental, emotional and social recovery process of our released 21 girls and we stand ready to support the Federal and Borno State Government in every relevant aspect,” she added.
