I have daughters too and as a leader, people’s lives and property must be protected, including the rehabilitation of traumatized girls and their parents. “These girls have no other place to go.

“We are taking these girls here in this council chamber to a school in either Zaria, or Abuja or Lagos, but we will not disclose the name of the Secondary Schools in which they will complete their secondary education that had been interrupted by their abduction.”
