Pakistani child rights activist, Malala Yousafzat, has finally met with President Goodluck Jonathan. And according to reports, one of the outcomes of her meeting with the President is that finally, he will be visiting the parents of the Chibok girls who are passing through horrifying experience following the abduction of their children over three months ago by the terrorist group, Boko Haram.
Malala, who has been in Nigeria to join her voice in the condemnation of the abduction of the
Nigerian girls, as part of activities to mark her seventeen birthday, said she was hopeful that the girls would be released soon as promised by the President. Adding that President Jonathan had also promised that once the missing girls were rescued, they would be given scholarships to go to school in any part of Nigeria.
Pressed by journalists, Malala said Jonathan described the girls' situation as "complicated" and that their lives could be put at risk by a military rescue attempt. She told reporters she would hold the Nigerian leader to his pledge that the girls would be home soon.
"I will from now be counting days and will be looking. I can't stop this campaign until I see these girls return back to their families and continue their education."
