President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday spoke in phone with Mrs. Rebecca Sharibu, mother of the Dapchi secondary schoolgirl, Leah, kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists since February but would not free her along with others because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, he said that Buhari assured Leah’s mother that his administration would “do everything it would take to bring her daughter back home”.
The President consoled the Sharibu family and assured the parents that the Federal Government would do its utmost for the safety and security of their daughter.
“I convey my emotion, the strong commitment of my administration and the solidarity of all Nigerians to you and your family as we will do our best to bring your daughter home in peace and safety,” Buhari told her.
Shehu said the President further assured the mother that his heart was with her family, as that of the entire nation which continues to pray for the safe return of “our daughter, Leah.”
