The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina has declared that the Muhammadu Buhari government has not abandoned negotiations for the release of Leah Sharibu, the abducted Dapchi schoolgirl, from her captors.
Adeshina stated this at the Easter Concert of Apostolic Faith Church West Africa themed: “Christ the King” held at the church’s National Headquarters in Anthony Village, Lagos.
He stressed that the Federal Government was working frantically to secure Sharibu’s release as well as the other girls that were abducted by Boko Haram.
Addressing journalists on efforts being made to secure the release of Leah Sharibu, the presidential spokesman said that efforts being embarked upon to free the teenager are classified and cannot be made public. He, however, urged Nigerians to keep faith, saying that the Federal Government was doing everything possible to secure her release as soon as possible.
