Lawyers under the aegis of Lawyers for Change has called on the president elect, General Muhamadu Buhari to take giant strides in recovering the Chibok girls abducted over a year ago.

The group national coordinator, Mr. Adesina Ogunlana disclosed this while addressing newsmen in Lagos. He urged Buhari to live up to his earlier promise of finding the girls who were abducted by the Boko Haram sect. Ogunlana said that his comments after the general elections in which he stated that he cannot guarantee the recovery of the girls, contradicts the promise he made prior to the elections.

“The girls were abducted on April 14, 2014 from their dormitory as they prepared for their examinations. What he said is at variance with his promise.

Chibok girls must be rescued, they must be found”, he said. The lawyers therefore charge the newly elected, at both the national and state level not to bask in the euphoria of past glory, but to create the much awaited change Nigerians have been craving for.

In order to adequately address and curb the issue of corruption, there must be a project tagged ‘real retooling of the national economy. “Misappropriation of government fund must end. To serve as a deterrent to others, wealth corruptly acquired should be relinquished. Our country must change and be changed”, they insisted.
