A Christian teen who was raped and forced to carry the child of a Boko Haram fighter in Nigeria has shared how God redeemed her tragedy to bring about blessing

Nigeria's president told the parents of 110 abducted schoolgirls on Wednesday he had ordered all military and security agencies to search for them, in his first visit to their home town since suspected Islamist militants took them a month ago.

I think that is the best way we have been helping the government of Nigeria secure the release of the girls, which we hope, will be done in a peaceful manner.

The President Buhari told the gathering that the Federal government is partnering with the worldwide community including Nigeria's immediate neighbours to ensure the safe return of the girls.

He is also scheduled to meet with U.S. Embassy personnel and participate in events related to U.S. government-supported activities. "This is borne out of this administration's conviction that doing so is safer, so that it will not endanger the lives of our young girls".

The President vowed to deal with whosoever found culpable in the situation that led to the abduction of the school girls. Why was there no immediate response to the abduction of the Dapchi girls?

When the Chibok Girls were kidnapped, the Jonathan administration did not "look the other way" as President Buhari claims and historical records prove this.

Boko Haram, which has killed tens of thousands of people since 2009 in its bid to create an Islamic state, lost most of its territory in the face of an offensive by Nigeria's army backed by troops from neighbouring countries in early 2015.

"They are out there sweating it out in the sun, making a living".

The Minister delivered a special message to President Buhari, in which Mr Beji Caid Essebsi, President of Tunisia, congratulated the Nigerian leader on his achievements in security, economy and role in Africa. We are determined to restore peace to all part of the country - from the West to the East; North to the South.

"The Government, under my watch, will continue to maintain normalcy and ensure that incidents of this nature are stopped". Be assured that measures are being put in place to achieve these objectives.
