Till date some of the girls that were abducted haven’t been rescued, it is said that some of them have even started families while in captivity.

“We are all witnesses to what happened in the recent past like the abduction of the Chibok girls, the slaughtering of students at Buni Yadi and abduction of students at Dapchi.

“These are all that happened and we have turned around that narrative.

“It will be gladdening to note that for the first time in the past six years, WAEC successfully held WASSCE in Chibok with the military providing security,’’ he said.

According to Ibrahim, the Nigerian Army played a crucial role in the the resuscitation of education in the North-East by fighting the insurgents, causing them to retreat from the North-East.
