President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday afternoon met with all the 21 released Chibok girls and their families at the State House, Abuja.
Today I received 21 dear daughters. They have seen the worst that the world has to offer. It is now time for them to experience the best.

The girls, who were among the 276 kidnapped in their Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok, Borno, on April 14, 2014, regained freedom from their Boko Haram abductors on Thursday, while the president was leaving to Germany on official visit.
Buhari said that the girls had experienced the worst the world could give, but assured that “they will now be getting the best the world can offer’’.
“We shall redouble our efforts to bring the rest back home,” Buhari said. “Aside from rescuing them, we are assuming the responsibility for their personal, educational and professional goals and ambitions in life.
“It is not late for the girls to go back to school and continue the pursuit of their studies,” he added.
The president also assured that his government would encourage them to achieve their personal and professional goals.
