Chibok girls now ready for re-integration –Federal Government

The Federal Government on Friday declared that the 106 released girls of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, are ready for reintegration into the society.

The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Jummai Alhassan, made the comment while briefing the Press on the update of the released Chibok girls in Abuja on Friday.

Alhassan said the girls would be allowed to go to the communities in Chibok to spend  a week before proceeding to American University of Nigeria for their foundation programme in September.

The minister said the girls were not being kept in isolation and would not come back from Abuja as they would be expected to return to their homes having undergone full integration programme.

She also said that those who handled the reintegration programme did not observe any traces of abnormality in the girls.

According to her, the initial fear that girls had about going to school and continuing their education and going out had been conquered.
