President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met with two women, said to be mothers of some of the over 200 abducted Chibok girls.
Over 200 school girls were reportedly abducted over a year ago, from a government school in Chibok.
After the meeting with the President a teary-eyed wife of the Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo, told journalists that the President and the First Lady, Aisha Buhari met with the Chibok girls and condoled them.
Mrs. Osinbajo said, “Hajia Aisha Buhari had for many months, wanted to visit Chibok. She also wanted to meet with the mothers. Today, we had an opportunity for them to meet face to face.
“We had two of the mothers who still have their daughters missing after a year. Hajia being a mother met with them, held them and they cried, everybody cried.
“What only a mother will do is to say wait, I want you to see your father and see what your father will do. We were all extremely overwhelmed, that at this time when the President is so busy, he had time to meet with the women from Chibok.
“He spoke to them in English and Hausa. He explained to them how he keeps telling everybody to put themselves in their place. So, today, we have had the opportunity for the President and Hajia to show that they are our father and mother, for that we are glad.”
