The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), Rev Dr. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, on behalf of the organisation has commended the federal government for the breakthrough recorded by getting 21 of the kidnapped Chibok girls released from the captivity of Boko Haram insurgents.
In his statement he says “It is one of the best news we have ever received this year from the government as a nation. Let the government be aware that CAN is with them in prayers in getting the rest of the girls released andthey should be no stone unturned in getting the rest that are still alive released”.
On behalf of CAN, he rejoiced lwith the parents of the released girls and also say “we are still praying that the parents of the remaining girls would soon be reunited with their own very soon in Jesus name,” He further encourage the government in his statement saying: “We ask the federal government not only to secure their freedom and release them to their parents but to set up a special rehabilitation programme in collaboration with CAN for the girls that would cover their full integration into the society again.”
Stating that “Securing their future through free education to tertiary level should be part of the integration programme. It is to compensate for the past failure of government in allowing the girls to be kidnapped and kept in incarceration for too long”.
God be praised!
