No guarantee I can rescue Chibok girls, but I’ll do all possible – Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari talking
President Muhammadu Buhari

Nigeria’s President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has pledged to do all possible to rescue more than 200 schoolgirls abducted from Chibok in Borno State, by Boko Haram militants, a year ago.

The girls were seized April 14, 2014 from their dormitories as they prepared for exams.

The current federal government has failed to rescue them, and has been widely criticised for not doing enough, until recently, to tackle Boko Haram.

In a statement marking the girls’ one year in captivity, Mr. Buhari said his government will act differently.

But he warned that the new approach must begin with “honesty”, in admitting that the girls’ whereabouts are unknown, and that as much as he wishes to, he cannot promise his government can find them.

Still, he assured “every parent, family member and friend of the children that my Government will do everything in its power to bring them home”.

Read the full statement below:

 

President-elect Muhammadu Buhari: Statement on the first anniversary of the kidnap by Boko Haram of 276 schoolgirls from Chibok

“Today we remember the kidnapping of 276 girls from a school in Chibok one year ago. This crime has rightly caused outrage both in Nigeria and across the world.

“Today is a time to reflect on the pain and suffering of the victims, their friends and families. Our thoughts and prayers, and that of the whole Nigerian Nation, are with you today.

“I want to assure all of them, and particularly the parents, that when my new Administration takes office at the end of May, we will do everything we can to defeat Boko Haram. We will act differently from the Government we replace: we hear the anguish of our citizens and intend to respond accordingly.

“This new approach must also begin with honesty. We do not know if the Chibok girls can be rescued. Their whereabouts remain unknown. As much as I wish to, I cannot promise that we can find them. But I say to every parent, family member and friend of the children that my Government will do everything in its power to bring them home.

“What I can pledge, with absolute certainty, is that starting on the first day of my Administration Boko Haram will know the strength of our collective will and commitment to rid this nation of terror, and bring back peace and normalcy to all the affected areas.

““Boko Haram” means “Western Education is Sinful”. When they are defeated militarily, as they will be, we will ensure our citizens in the affected areas have improved educational opportunities as a direct counterbalance to Boko Haram’s twisted ideology. In particular we will educate ever more young girls ensuring they are empowered as citizens of Nigeria.

“Let us use this anniversary to remind each other that the attack on Chibok was an attack on the dreams and aspirations of our young people.

“We stand united in our pledge to resist terror in Nigeria– not just through military means but also through the power of opportunity and the hope of a better future for all”.

      Only in February 2010 Soyinka & Tinubu were on their way to Benin for a political rally with Oshiomhole as Host. At the Benin Airport the duo got hint that one Thief IBB was to be in that gathering as an invitee Presidential aspirant. They could not, according to them, imagine they sitting with one who TERMINATED democracy in 1993. They immediately got back into the airplane en route to Lagos.

      2012
      In April 2012, Mohammed/Mohammadu Bokohari who himself TERMINATED democracy with guns, Issued a threat: “If what happens in 2011 happens again in 2015, if I lose the elections, the streets will be soaked with the blood of the Dogs & Baboons” …and within 6months, the same Tinubu was in Kaduna to prostrate and lie down flat for Bokohari in that infamous photo of his which went viral but bacterial & fungal on the internet.

      2013
      …and the same Soyinka has kept his mouth shut as the Yorubas conspire to bring in Islamists to power who himself did worse things than IBB….. So, why are the Yorubas like this?

      So my prend, dont u see that HONESTY is alien to the musketeer APC regions of continent Nigeria?

    even if Buhari does not bring back the girls, the blame cant be on him rather it will be on GEJ because these girls would have been found a long time ago but because Jonathan was playing politics the their lives, who knows what would have become of them. also don’t forget that with the recent bombardment of the boko haram territory it will be very difficult to locate them. so lets give Buhari a breathing space to do his mandate. pls no useless comments, this is just my thought.

    • Shehu Monguno

      Caleb, that I will regard as an excuse. Part of the promises APC made to us is they will find and rescue the girls. If they cant do that alive they can do that dead or at least officially close the issue by telling us the girls have been killed. As the C-I-C from May 29 the ball is in GMB court

    President elect Buhari with a clean beginning of Nigeria rebirth. A President that realized that his government has to be accountable to the people. More importantly What Happened to our Kidnapped innocent school girls. Jonathan administration paid little or no attention to the rescue of the girls. Unfortunately Jonathan saw the missing girls issues as a distraction. A mistake for wish God and the Nigerian people’s had him punished him for. Buhari’s administration should operate as a democratic government. That is daily updates on the rescue effort by the Nigerian Armed forces and Police forces. No place should home for Boko Haram’s in our land..

    The Vuvuzelas And Propagandists in APC aided and abetted by some biased media houses latched onto everything possible to paint GEJ black.
    But deep down they knew grandad Buhari was no Magician and several of their promises during campaign were just empty propaganda based on deceit and lies.
    Those that will be thoroughly disappointed are their gullible minions..who are gradually coming to the painful reality that the ex coupist does not possess the ‘magic wand’ he claimed to have!

    Hilary with all her educational certificates intact has started her campaign for US presidency. She’s been engaging with the people and when the time comes will stand before the people together with other candidates in an open debate where voters will access their suitability, comportment, oratory skills, intelligence etc etc

    …but in continent Nigeria, Buhari REFUSED to attend a debate knowing the can of worms and skeletons that will be exposed will be too horrific to handle. He eloped. …But the Yoruba colluded to vote him in becos since 1777 when they lost Ilorin, they have become too accustomed to servitude.

    The elections have shown that Nigeria is divided into 2 political zones now.
    1. The parasitic West & North alliance with no economic resources
    2. The South & East with ALL the resources and economic power.

          Talking without thinking is really bad. Where all the girls supposed to relocate to maids guru to write exams? Who would have paid for their relocation? What if they didn’t have relatives in maiduguru? Would you have paid for their hotel rooms, for feeding etc? What does WAEC know about security that the govt should have taken their warning seriously? They only warned the government so that if anything happened they would cover their asses which is exactly what happened. The only option the government had was to cancel the examination based on a warning that did not come from the army or law enforcement ( the authorities where such a warning should ideally come from).

    • Abdul

      Lol, Jonathan would have told Nigerians that he will bring back the girls tomorrow. Jonathan is the clueless who have show his clueless level in so many ways.

        LAST Sunday’s visit of the United States Ambassador to Nigeria to the International Conference Centre, in Abuja, where the collation of results for the 2015 Presidential election was taking place, was a brazen breach of diplomatic protocol. It was a visit that should be condemned for what it represents: an undue interference in a sensitive and important internal affair of this country.

        James Entwistle, while at the ICC, was quoted as saying that the Permanent Voter Card employed in Nigeria’s 2015 elections, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, was of higher technological value than the one in use in his home state of Virginia in the US. “I think we need to come and study it so that we can use it in my country,” he said. Although seemingly well-intentioned and commendable on its face value, that statement, to say the least, was also patronising.

        While it is sometimes permissible, and indeed acceptable, to prod a reluctant country into taking actions perceived to be beneficial to the country, there should be a time to draw the line, especially on matters that have to do with the internal affairs of a sovereign state. If there are international rules and conventions governing conduct among nation states, such should be respected and applied in all circumstances. Policy options, especially on the choice of a political, economic, social and cultural system, and the formulation of foreign policy, fall into the category of matters which each state is permitted, by the principle of State sovereignty, to decide freely. It will be unimaginable for the Nigerian ambassador in the US to behave in a similar manner during an election in his host country.—THAT IS NIGERIA UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE CIA-VIA BUHARI

        • A person shall not be qualified for election to

        forged certificate to the Independent

      Some times good sense, and humility can come from them. Our forefather did not go to school, yet they managed the government in a so called primitive way before the advent of the white men. We are in fact ripping the fruit of what they built. To be honest with our self, most of the degree certificate carrying graduates in the country can not defend it, and can not express them selves. Please, put this certificate syndrome aside and lets face the real problems in the country. With constructive criticism from a strong opposition, Buhari can do a lot for the country, same with you, if you are put in there to govern.

    NIGERIA WILL NEVER EVER ACCEPT BUHARI AS PRESIDENT ……….. THOSE WHO ARE PARADING BUHARI AS PRESIDENT ELECT WILL BE DISAPPOINTED IN THE END.

    It is no longer hidden that Muhammadu Buhari provided false information in his completed and tendered INEC forms falsely claiming that he has WASC ………. truth is that Buhari does not have WASC and was not even qualified to join the Nigerian Army Officer Corp.

    For the avoidance of doubt ……. the issue is not whether Buhari has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President. Notwithstanding, it is instructive to note that going by the documents Buhari tendered to INEC, there is no evidence that he has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President.

    Furthermore, the issue is not whether Buhari committed perjury or not ……… the issue is that Buhari provided false information in his duly completed and tendered prescribed INEC forms … the perjury issue only serves as concrete proof that Buhari provided false information in his duly completed and tendered prescribed INEC forms contrary to the provisions of the Electoral Act …. the consequences are very, very clear and obvious …….. DISQUALIFICATION ….. PERIOD

    Section 31 subsection 5 & 6 of the Electoral 2010 as amended is very clear and states inter alia:

    S31.5: Any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information given by a candidate in the affidavit or any document submitted by that Candidate is false may file a suit at the Federal High Court, High Court of a State of FCT against such a person seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false.

    RESTATED FOR CLARITY: S31.5: Any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information given by a candidate in ……………… any document submitted by that Candidate is false may file a suit at the Federal High Court, High Court of a State of FCT against such a person seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false.

    S31.6: If the Court determines that any of the information contained in the affidavit or any document submitted by that candidate is false, the Court shall issue an Order disqualifying the Candidate from contesting the election.

    RESTATED FOR CLARITY: S31.6: If the Court determines that any of the information contained in ……….. any document
    submitted by that candidate is false, the Court shall issue an Order disqualifying the Candidate from contesting the election.

    It is not in doubt that Mohammed or Muhammadu Buhari submitted a document to INEC that contained false information viz. falsely claiming that he has WASC …… which obviously he does not have.

    What then is the basis of the delusion that Buhari is the President Elect ?

    NB:

    It is instructive to note that Section 31 of the Electoral Act also makes reference to “the prescribed forms” which indeed stipulated that Buhari attach copies of his academic qualifications claims to his completed “prescribed forms”.

    The essence of this provision was to ensure that crooks like Buhari and Tinubu who are veteran certificate
    forgers are not given an escape route .

    But Buhari, being a hardened crook who has been cheating on the certificate issue since 1961 when he joined the Army Officer Corps without WASC proceeded to commit perjury by claiming strangely that all his certificates are with a none
    existent Secretary to the Military Board.

    BUHARI IS A WORLD-CLASS LIAR AND CHEAT WHO WILL NEVER BE SWORN IN AS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

    • begy

      Please don’t put sand in the soup. If you want good for the country, don’t cry more than the bereaved. Nigerian spent a lot of money to conduct the election, it has been won and lost, acceptance rendered. There are many politicians that presided over the affairs of their country without certificate. President G. Ford of the USA did not have a wonderful education, yet he proved himself in managing the affairs if his country. Running a country is like running a business. Most of the successful businessmen in the world did not have exceptional education to manage their businesses. Please, let’s give this guy a chance to at least prove himself. To pull him down at this stage wont do the country any good.

        But elections must be conducted according to the laws of our land ……… the moral foundations of our country will crumble beyond recognition if we set aside the law of land and allow a veteran liar, a cheat and a certificate forger who did not meet required criteria to become President.

        What will be our basis for implementing the law against others if Buhari is allowed to get away with his criminal misconduct?

      @actionnigeria:disqus

      No lawyer in Nigeria ever said he expects Muhammadu Buhari to be sworn in as President based
      on this Wasc/Cambridge certificate scandal in court. I have become convinced that Buhari is going
      nowhere except his home town in Daura, Katsina state, after re-delivering his INEC certificate of a

      president-elect, since he can no longer bear that title after his 15m votes are nullified as in-eligible;
      and, after he is himself dis-qualified. I am already looking forward to American type politics in Nigeria.
      When Buhari is disqualified, we will have an ideal polity where APC controls the Senate and the House
      of Representatives whilst the PDP controls only the executive. That is the ideal situation for check and
      balance. Were Nigerian voters enlightened, they’d bring this about themselves, but they are not.

      Don’t forget that western counties, including USA and Canada sent I some experts with equipment to locate the girls, drones were also used but nothing was seen.

They were sent to military tribunal. I believe that the whole issue is a political manipulation.

    Observe that Boko Haram has suddenly gone underground since Buhari was illegally declared as “President Elect” despite the fact that he was not qualified to be on the ballot.

      We were told that the 200 girls were part if the girls that came for their physics exams. My question to CBC Canada current programm was : how many girls are registered in to take physics exams? How many came back home? From the aforementioned, we can deduce, how many girls are missing. However, I am seriously in doubt that, that number of girls will be taking physics in a school, that is basically science school. If it were Arabic studies or Biology, it will be making some kind of sense. No body,axtually knows the number of missing girls, if in fact there are girls missing. The school principal should know

Once a politician, always a chameleon. No difference between them. The beginning of things to come. I pray he gets the girls back, at least to rekindle my hope that new born politicians have come roast.

      A MAN THAT LACKS HONESTY ON WASC/CAMBRIDGE CERTIFICATE
      CANNOT BE HONEST IN ANYTHING ELSE – INCLUDING CHIBOK GIRLS.
      ON 22ND OF APRIL THE HEARING ON HIS DIS-QUALIFICATION STARTS;
      AND, BUHARI SHALL BE DIS-QUALIFIED FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

        Koboko flogging for Buhari

        Yes 0! Buhari lied and lied all through like a badly-trained child. He just wants to steal the presidency of
        Nigeria with tons of lies. But now the game is up, he is to face the court on 22nd April. He must confess
        he does not have any Wasc and that he lied on oath. The APC may then beg that Muhammadu Buhari be flogged instead of jailed for perjury. But whether flogged or jailed for lies-telling on oath, Buhari shall be dis-qualified in accordance with the mandatory law at § 137 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria

        .

        • dele akindimula

          I knew all along that Buhari was just wasting his time in this presidential race.
          Once news broke in December and WAEC said he did not sit for WASC exam,
          it was obvious to me that Muhammadu Buhari was not eligible to run under the law.
          Good he ran anyway since he now has some consolation of having the most votes.
          But the most votes is NOT what the law needs, but the truth of submitted credentials.

            “And now the conclusion seems to be inescapable in Nigeria that what we have
            as leaders in politics, business and the civil service are common thieves in high places.
            The rot is so deep that stealing is now in the family system, in the religious system;
            even in friendly and social clubs. Everybody is looking for somebody else to steal from.
            The day our leaders decide they don’t need James Ibori’s kind of wealth or Cecilia Ibru’s
            kind of property acquisition, that a good name is better than material acquisition; and that
            leadership at the end of the day, is about people and leaving a place better than you met
            it, is the day Nigeria will begin a positive walk into sanity and propriety. Until then, Nigeria
            is just a nation of common thieves.”

    Buhari must find those girls. That’s why we employed him. No excuses.

    • Ed

      Whaooooooo Nigerian just discovered that 219 of our Kidnapped innocent school girls were still missing. Going by the raging outrage at the president elect Buhari. There will be time when rational people will lead the opposition to Buhari’s failure to keep his promises. I’m going to be Part of that effort then.
      The Chibok girls issue and Buhari’s statements were right on point. Lack of honesty and accountability were the biggest contributor the frustration of the Nigerian and the World with Jonathan government.
      Buhari like every human beings can only do everything possible to rescue our girls.

  • Mani_Kay

    The Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani are the ones that set up the Chibok Girls Abduction for political gain.

    The Sultan of Sokoto and the Emirs are all involved in the scam ………. Buhari is the mastermind of the scam.

    LAST Sunday’s visit of the United States Ambassador to Nigeria to the International Conference Centre, in Abuja, where the collation of results for the 2015 Presidential election was taking place, was a brazen breach of diplomatic protocol. It was a visit that should be condemned for what it represents: an undue interference in a sensitive and important internal affair of this country.

    James Entwistle, while at the ICC, was quoted as saying that the Permanent Voter Card employed in Nigeria’s 2015 elections, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, was of higher technological value than the one in use in his home state of Virginia in the US. “I think we need to come and study it so that we can use it in my country,” he said. Although seemingly well-intentioned and commendable on its face value, that statement, to say the least, was also patronising.

      HOURS LATER THE USA GOPVT UNDER OBAMA———- HONORED JEGA WITH AN AWARD EVEN B4 THE GOVERNORSHIP ELECTIONS——————WHAT A SHAME——————————- WHAT A COUNTRY

      • Jossy

        This is funny! When people like you would organize thanks giving services for American Visas, an honest recommendation by the US government on a credible process is hurting your minds. Na wa for my brothers. Why can’t we grow up and join hands to appreciate good things when we see them?. INEC did well in this election and should be commended. QED.

      • Bestvoice123

        Exactly, now APC is crying for cancellation of Rivers state and Akwa Ibom governorship/house of assembly election.

  • Jaspa Matanga

    Hahahahahaha … the alibi and volte-face has started o. Buhari, that was not what you said during your campaign o. You either bring back the chibok girls or you resign in shame and ignominy.

    • Jossy

      I bet that if president Jonathan had expressed capacity to relay his thoughts so nicely like these on national issues in his entire six years in Aso Rock, a lot of Nigerians would’ve supported and probably reelected him; there perhaps wouldn’t have been an APC or another Gen. Buhari’s government. What can be more pleasing to the ear than hearing your president speaks so passionately about an issue as weighty as the chibok girls, which GEJ and his team seriously politicized. Am sure the remaining parents of the girls would sleep well by just hearing these comforting words; and I hope too that the next generation of GEJs would learn something from here. Sorry! we have to learn to accept that God loves this country and has heard our cry for purposeful leadership. Never again shall this country tolerate mediocre leadership.

    Muhammadu Buhari faces trial on 22nd April

    I am told that Premium Times has been supporting the APC Islamist party.
    May i just say it is their choice though i hasten to add they will regret it soon.
    On 22nd April – just eight days’ time – Buhari’s best-kept secret will be out.
    Hearing starts on his WASC/Cambridge claimed certificate in the High Court.
    This is a straightforward matter of ‘yes or no’ to be ended in a few days.
    Did you take the Wasc/Cambridge exam in 1961 with proof of Wasc certificate?

    If yes, show the Wasc certificate. Simple. No long talk. No need for any lawyer.
    If no, then, Buhari has to go his village in Daura, Katsina state, as dis-barred.
    Within two weeks, this Wasc case should be concluded and judgment rendered.
    That is when the Premium Times Mujahedeens will regret supporting illiteracy.
    It is always better to support what is better for your country on the choice on offer.
    Between Jonathan’s incompetence and Buhari’s Islamist Jihad, the latter is worse.

    This is a man with a word. Word that someone can hold on to for a decade, words that make someone believe in this country, words of possibility, words of courage, words of a LEADER. With GMB Nigeria will find her fit back soon. The CHANGE has come. APC for NEW Nigeria

    • burning spear

      Buhari said he will rescue the Chibok gals within hours of his victory——–now he has been lying from pillar to post since his janjaweed boko haramic victory which Obama sponsored–Tell him to keep quiet–because we know the gals are with APC——-IT WAS ONLY USED FOR PROPAGANDA PURPOSES—to paint Gej black

        Where and when did he say that he will rescue the girls? I will like you to provide a reference. What I have consistently heard/watched him saying is that he would fight and defeat BH.

    Another Church Burnt In Sokoto To Celebrate APC’s fake governorship Victory.

    A Pentecostal Church in Sokoto state capital, Sokoto was set ablaze by youths of the Nigerian first Islamist Party, the APC, to celebrate the Victory of Hon Aminu Tambuwal as their Governor elect.

    The Church was singled out according to locals because of its name, The Goodluck Embassy Church. A Muslim leader whom the youths accused of supporting President Goodluck Jonathan was also Stoned by the youths, but was rescued by his family and friends that Challenged the celebrating youths.

    About five churches have been burnt down by rampaging APC youths since Muhammadu Buhari was declared winner of the 2015 Presidential election.

    • Moses Olaniyan

      @buringspear:disqus,

      Please let the Christians burn

      I am happy to hear that so far five churches have been burnt since Muhammadu Buhari was elected.
      I will be so angry that i can wound any Pastor – whether Redeemed or Mountain of Fire – should i hear

      any complaint over it from any Christian Bishop or Prelate. I am saying it with all the seriousness in me.
      As Christians are being burnt on the streets, or in their churches, let me not hear any noise from them.
      I can be very brutal when i am angry. Let the Christians set on fire just burn quietly without disturbing me!
      They voted for CHANGE, so let them burn. Nobody should worry over how many Christians are burnt.

    When did Bokohari become a general? He was kicked out of Nigeria Army as a certificate-less major-general but he still signs his 419 statements as a general. Is this another case of a false affidavit?
