The wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday said the nation will continue to remember the kidnapped Chibok school girls.
She stated this at the 2nd Nigeria Police Force Quiz Competition for Secondary Schools in Abuja as part of the 2016 Police Week.
Over 200 girls were kidnapped in Chibok, Borno State, by members of the Boko Haram sect on April 14, 2014.
In her words: “I cannot but remember on a day like this, in a place like this, listening to the beautiful voices of the children; I cannot but remember the ones that we have lost and the ones that we are still searching for.”
Represented by the wife of the Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo, Mrs. Buhari urged parents to raise a generation of diligent, hard working children for the country.
The president’s wife noted that it is important for Nigerians to work together to make the country great.
She said: “The Police week 2016 clearly indicates the efforts been made by the Nigeria police to work hand in hand with the different parts of our society, in this case the youths.
“One of these lessons is a lesson of being a team player, the ability to work with others, work within a group for a common purpose. This is required more than ever in our nation because together we can do so much more.
“The students can make the connection between hard work and success thereby ensuring that we bring up a generation of diligent, faithful and hard working Nigerians in every field of endeavour.”
The wife of the President noted that the celebration showed the efforts being made by the Police to work with different segment of the society.
