buhari-meets-21-chibok-girlsFollowing the return of 21 Chibok girls,  the Federal Government of Nigeria is set to rehabilitate the girls and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has advised that the Federal Government involve experienced clerics to assist in counselling the girls.

Speaking for the association, the Niger state chapter chairman, Mathias Echioda said that the call became necessary to help rebuild morals and lives of the affected girls. “I appeal to the Federal Government to involve clergymen that will use their professional based knowledge and faith to counsel the girls.

“Government should involve seasoned, experienced and informed clergymen to assist in counselling the girls to rebuild their morals and lives,” he said.

He added that the effort would help the girls to overcome the physiological trauma they went through in the hands of their abductors.

“It is a welcome development because it is a miracle that Nigerians and the world have been expecting to happen, long ago. It came at a time when there was no clear knowledge of it coming.

“Our continuous prayer is that the remaining girls be released and reunited with their loved ones.”

Mr Echioda expressed delight on the dialogue for the release of the remaining missing girls and also adviced that government should “weigh the pros and cons of whatever decision to take in the process of dialogue.”
