The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, on behalf of the organization has commended the Federal Government for the breakthrough recorded by getting 21 of the kidnapped Chibok girls released. Ayokunle, in a press statement issued and signed by his spokesman, Bayo Oladeji, described the news of their release as great and pleasant. He assured the Federal Government of CAN’s prayers to ensure the remaining girls are released.
“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 prayer in getting the rest of the girls released and that they should leave no stone unturned in getting the rest that are still alive released,” he said.
The leadership of CAN also rejoiced with the parents of the released girls while praying that the rest of the parents would also have their children returned to them very soon.
“CAN rejoices with the parents of the released girls and we are still praying that the parents of the remaining girls would soon be reunited with their own very soon in Jesus name”.
Ayokunle also appeals to the Federal Government to not only release the girls to their parents but to organise a special rehabilitation program in collaboration with CAN for them that would cover their full integration into the society. The statement further called for free education at all levels to everyone of them as part of the integration programme and compensation for the unprecedented trauma and ordeals they suffered.
