The VP, in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, said the FG will make provisions for the girls’ education and desired career.

The statement reads in part: “We are also going to see to it that everything that you require going forward.

“Perhaps your education, those who need to go back to school, those who need to find employment, we are going to make sure that we make all the provisions for you.

“I am sure you are going to be very well taken care of. We have provided very good accommodation for you where you will stay where you will sleep and your parents will come and meet you there also,” the VP said, adding that the FG was very committed to their rescue and welfare.
