The Presidency has explained why President Muhammadu Buhari can’t be blamed for the inability to secure the release of abducted Chibok schoolgirls and Leah Sharibu.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the Chibock schoolgirls and Sharibu couldn’t be rescued because they could not be traced.

Adesina said the trail for the girls was cold when Buhari assumed office.


He spoke while appearing on Channels Television’s breakfast program, Sunrise Daily, on Thursday.

Speaking about the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls, Adesina said: “If a government came in when the trail was already cold, and you couldn’t trace where the girls were taken, you can’t then blame it solely for not bringing them back, that would not be quite right.

“Dapchi girls were taken under the administration, and within the week they were recovered except maybe five, including Leah Sharibu, sadly.”
