Jonathan reassures Nigerians on abducted girls

02 May 2014, 07:41

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has again assured Nigerians that the girls abducted from the secondary school in Chibok, Borno State, will be rescued.

He gave the assurance ‎at the May Day celebration at Eagle Square in Abuja.

The president  added that his administration was determined to end the Boko Haram insurgency and all other forms of insecurity.

He again vowed that  the perpetrators of Nyanya Bus Terminal bombing in the Federal Capital would be sought and punished in accordance with the law.

Jonathan said that the security strategies meant to curb the insurgents were constantly being reviewed in order to forestall the plans of the terrorists to frustrate the government.

He urged Nigerians to cooperate with security agencies to frustrate the terrorist sect.

"The government is constantly reviewing and upgrading mechanisms to curb this mindless act and together  with the cooperation of our citizens, we shall triumph over all this evil that wants to debase our humanity or obstruct our progress as a nation.

Those who want to re-define our country to be seen as a country of chaos will never succeed."

"We must find our missing girls and for this act of terror in Nyanya that led to the loss of lives of our people, the perpetrators must be brought to book,” said Jonathan. - CAJ News
