Reports reaching NIGERIA NEWS reveals that the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, have reacted to the trending audio message from Leah Sharibu.
Recall that Leah Sharibu is still the only girl held up in Boko Haram’s custody since the release of the Dapchi School girls.
Adesina who spoke on a Television interview stated that only God knows when Leah Sharibu will be released.
According to Adesina, “President Buhari had made a commitment to do anything to rescue the kidnapped girls even if it means paying for their release.”
He said, “For how much longer, I think that question can only be answered by God. I believe that God is interested in that young girl and will ensure that she is preserved.”
“I think when that clip that we have is verified, at least one will be sure that it’s her and when that is determined, we should all be glad that she is alive.”
“When will she return, by the grace of God, the government is working on it and we believe she will be back.”
“One thing we should always remember as Nigerians is that early in the life of this administration, then it was Chibok girls, the president said that whatever it will take to get the girls back including paying, he would do. It’s on record.”
Adesina also re-emphasised that no ransom was paid for the girls that were earlier released.
“That is not confirming that there was payment on Dapchi because the then DG of DSS was categorical the day the girls were brought back and it was in public glare that no a dime was paid for Dapchi girls. On Dapchi, there was no payment,” Adesina added.
