He also promised that his administration will ensure that Amina gets the best medical, emotional and other necessary care towards her full recovery and integration into the society.‎

The President made the promise when he received the girl in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said: “Like others all over the world, I’m delighted that Amina Ali, one of the missing Chibok girls has regained her freedom‎. But my feelings are tinged with deep sadness and horrors the girl has had to go through at such an early stage in her life.

“Although we cannot do anything to reverse the horrors of her past, the Federal Government can and will do everything possible to ensure that the rest of her life takes a completely different course.

“Amina will get the best care that the Nigerian government can afford. We will ensure that she gets the best medical, emotional and whatever care that she requires to get full recovery and be integrated into the society‎.

“Yesterday, medical personnel from government and other NGOs examine her for about five hours, trauma experts from UNICEF also met her. The FG will get the Murtala Mohammed Foundation, which has already been providing support for the families of the missing Chibok girls and which runs a trauma and counseling faciity in Kano to also be involved in the ongoing work with Amina in monitoring her progress and any additional support she requires.”
