In the letter, the parents begged Tinubu to help them secure the release of the remaining girls still in captivity, saying that “Mr. President, as you are well aware, our predicament started in 2014 when 276 of our daughters from Chibok Government Secondary School were abducted.

“It has been years of pain and agony for us and we are disheartened that nine years later and a few months before the end of the immediate past administration, 92 of these girls remain in Boko Haram captivity, subjected to unimaginable ordeal and abuse at the hands of their captors.”

They said in Tinubu’s inaugural speech, despite not making a direct pledge particularly regarding their plight in Chibok, the president pledged to make security a top priority.

“It is on this premise therefore, we the concerned parents of Chibok humbly seek Your Excellency’s attention to once again beam a searchlight to the recovery of the remaining 92 of our kidnapped daughters,” the parents said.
