Buhari: All Kidnapped Children Will Be Freed by Ebullience(m): 4:53pm On Feb 10, 2020
President Muhammadu Buhari has assured all children, as well as adults, held hostage by terrorists and other criminals in Nigeria will be freed.

President Buhari gave the assurance on Monday at a breakfast dialogue with the theme: ‘Stop the war on children affected by Armed Conflicts, Dividend of Silencing the Guns’, on the sidelines of the ongoing 33rd African Union (AU) Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The programme was co-sponsored by the governments of Nigeria, Uganda and Norway, the AU Commission and Save the Children.

The President also charged AU Peace and Security Council to energetically champion the strategy to stop the war on children and adopt the Child Protection Architecture within the African Peace and Security Architecture and the Road map on Silencing the Guns.

A statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, stated Buhari assured his administration is committed to get all kidnapped child, male and male, out of terrorists’ captivity.

Speaking of the situation in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria, President Buhari said ”a number of school girls from Chibok and Dapchi earlier abducted by Boko Haram have regained their freedom.

”We commend the gallant efforts of the MultiNational Joint Task Force and the partners in supporting the reintegration of the girls.

”Let me categorically reassure you of the steadfast commitment of the Government of Nigeria to ensure the freedom of all kidnapped children from the shackles of Boko Haram.

”We will not relent until every child, boy, or girl, every Nigerian adult in custody of Boko Haram, is freed!.”

The President urged African countries and stakeholders on the continent to work fervently towards strengthening the protection of children from the six grave violations during armed conflict.

The six grave violations are killing and maiming of children, recruitment or use of children as soldiers, sexual violence against children, abduction of children, attacks against schools or hospitals and denial of humanitarian access for children.

President Buhari expressed concern that these grave violations against children have continued unabated.


”It is for this reason that the Nigerian government has severally condemned, and is combating frontally the dreadful activities of terrorist groups like Boko Haram and the so-called Islamic State.

”Of course, the severity of these grave violations varies from country to country.

”The incidence of a single violation of children rights in any country is an indelible dent on the African consciousness and is to be deplored and condemned,” he said.

Reminding AU Member States of their commitments to protecting children affected by armed conflicts in Africa, President Buhari reaffirmed Nigeria’s commitment to the protection of children in armed conflict zones.

He also used the occasion to outline some concrete measures taken by Nigeria towards tackling the root causes of child soldiers and the misfortune of out-of-school children.

”To stem the tide of out-of-school children Nigeria embarked on an all-inclusive reconstruction of schools vandalized by the ravaging terrorist activities of Boko Haram, while returning children are rehabilitated and reintegrated into society.

”Our Nomadic Education policy is also being implemented to reduce the number of out-of-school children. We have also prioritized de-radicalisation and demobilisation of ex-combatant children of Boko Haram insurgents,” President Buhari said.

Charging the continent on protecting children against the abuses of wars and conflicts, the Nigerian leader said ”the call to action is now for accountability by all African States to the rights of the children caught up in wars.

”Let us stop the war on children. This is a wake-up call for us all to create the enabling environment for rooting out the impact of armed conflicts against our children across the continent,” he said.

So help us God.

Even though it seem impossible, it his expected of His Excellency to boost the moral of his people and also show his optimism.


Once upon a time when it took a dullard months to admit (that's if he ever truly admitted in his mind till date) that over 200 girls were kidnapped and he was busy arguing with Borno state government.

The shipopotamus on the other hand was setting up a committee of 'na only you waka come'

So the other kidnapped men and woman are not part of the citizens that deserve the protection of the state.

So u guys don hear am, if you're above 14 years, and u get kidnapped. U no dey baba agenda o. U dey on your own.

But on a side note. I stopped taking this boko haram situation serious about 7 years ago, where I saw a video of these terrorists praying together with these villagers, laughing and going about their normal businesses. The truth is that if the villagers don't want them there's no way they can stay and operate. But why blame them, an hausa man that has 15 children who he can't feed, gets free 3 square meal plus light and water at the IDP camp without any work or stress. It's a free meal ticket to him. Free education too for his kids.
In borno alone, they had more votes for this clueless govt more than most southern states. They're voting for continuity. Don't pity them, they like what's happening, that's why u can never see them protest or lash out against the govt

If the octogenarian president has not fulfilled previous promises, he has no moral right to make another one.
But one wouldn't expect Buhari to understand that.
