First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari says she shares in the sorrow and agony of parents of all abducted girls in the country.
She expressed this distress in Abuja on Thursday while delivering a speech to mark the 2018 International Women`s Day. She entitled it: “Leave Our Daughters Alone.’’
She lamented, “as a mother, I share (in) the sorrow and agony which the parents are going through up to this moment. I am aware of the efforts being made for the release of the remaining Chibok girls as well as the recently (abducted) Dapchi girls. It is my sincere hope that the efforts will yield positive results.”
The wife of the President said that the abductions had further exposed the long-standing evil perpetrated against women in the society. She, therefore, called on relevant stakeholders, especially the media, to stand against the “disturbing issue’’.
“It is a disturbing issue for which we must put heads together, pray, speak out, show concern and ensure that the situation comes to an end.’’
According to Leadership Newspaper, Mrs. Buhari said it was unfortunate that celebration of the 2018 International women`s day came with pains and agony following the abduction of the Dapchi School girls. She also expressed concern over the use of young girls by insurgents to carry out suicide bombing.
