The President affirmed that, as a parent and leader of the country, he understood the torment, frustration and anxiety of the parents and will not spare any effort to ensure the safe return of the girls.

"The President continues to believe that with the total commitment of the Federal Government, Nigerian Armed Forces and security agencies, and the support of the international community, the girls will be eventually rescued.

"President Buhari notes that thousands of persons, mostly women and children, who were kidnapped by Boko Haram, have already been rescued and reunited with their families.

"He shares the hope of the parents that the Chibok girls will ultimately be rescued and reunited with their families as well.

"The President assures the parents that the Federal Government and security agencies will continue to explore all possible options for the safe return of the girls.

"President Buhari urges the parents to continue to exercise patience and understanding as the government works diligently to ensure that the girls return home unharmed", the statement.

The President also thanked Nigerians, religious and civil organizations, and the international community for their continued sympathy, support and prayers for the return of the Chibok girls.
