The Presidency said the Buhari administration will not relent in efforts to bring Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi schoolgirl still in captivity safely back home to her parents.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, gave the assurance in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.
According to him, Buhari is as committed to the freedom of Sharibu, as he was to the girls’ freedom when all 110 were in the captivity of Boko Haram terrorists.
He said the President had assured the Sharibu family that he would continue to do all he could to ensure that they also have cause to rejoice with their daughter soon.
According to him, Buhari is mindful of the fact that true followers of Islam all over the world respect the injunction that there is no compulsion in religion and to this effect, no one or group can impose its religion on another.
