Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, has said that his administration is still optimistic of rescuing the remaining Chibok schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity.
Zulum who made an appearance on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Friday, said this while responding to questions about the state of security in the northeastern state.
It’s been six years since over 200 girls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from their secondary school in Chibok town.
While many have been rescued and several others escaped, many still remain in captivity.
When asked if the government had lost hope in the rescue of the girls, Zulum said: “not at all”. “We are still optimistic,” he added.
