Two years after abduction, Buhari vows to redouble efforts on securing release of Leah Sharibu






President Muhammadu Buhari has said his administration will redouble its efforts to secure the release of Leah Sharibu, who was abducted two years ago by Boko Haram terrorists.

In a statement he personally signed to commemorate the second year of the abduction of 110 schoolgirls from Dapchi in Yobe State, the President also said his administration was poised to secure the freedom of all children abducted by terrorists, irrespective of their faith.

He emphasised Nigeria’s secularity, saying this guarantees that all citizens are free to choose their faith.

President Buhari noted that no one has the right to force any faith on any citizen of the country.

He urged Nigerians of goodwill to join his administration in its fight against terrorism by disallowing the divisive intents of Boko Haram terrorists and others like them, to succeed.

“As we as redouble our efforts for Leah’s return, we can never allow the terrorists to divide us – Christian against Muslim, Muslim against Christian.

“We are all sons of Abraham. And all Nigerians have the same worth and rights before the law, and before God,” the President said.
