It Is Uncertain Chibok Girls Will Be Found - Buhari

On the first anniversary of the kidnapping of hundreds of girls by Boko Haram from a school in northeast Nigeria, President-elect Muhammadu Buhari said he is uncertain whether the 219 who are still missing will ever be found.

"We do not know if the Chibok girls can be rescued. Their whereabouts remain unknown," Buhari said on Tuesday. "As much as I wish to, I cannot promise that we can find them." The President, who will take office May 29, added, "What I can pledge, with absolute certainty, is that starting on the first day of my administration Boko Haram will know the strength of our collective will and commitment to rid this nation of terror, and bring back peace and normalcy to all the affected areas."

One year ago, the schoolgirls were kidnapped from the town of Chibok by the extremist group, which has terrorized the northeastern regions of Nigeria for six years in an attempt to establish an Islamic caliphate.

Chibok kidnapping first anniversary, 20 parents have died

On 14 April, 2014, Boko Haram kidnapped 275 girls from their local school in Chibok, Nigeria. It was the Islamic extremist group's largest abduction in a long campaign of kidnappings and it generated global headlines at the time, with even the likes of Michelle Obama speaking up on their behalf. One year on and most of the girls - Open Doors sources say 232 - remain missing, government assurances have come to nothing, and Boko Haram's violence in the region has intensified.

Sadly, whatever their eventual fate, some of the girls will never see their parents alive again: the charity has learnt that parents of up to 20 of the girls have died due to stress-related diseases during the last year. Their deaths reflect the devastation caused by these kidnappings.

Chibok is just one of many communities which Open Doors is supporting as it lives with the aftermath of extremist violence.

Depreciating Value of Naira Can Affect Christian Pilgrimage Adversely - Oyo State Pilgrims Welfare Board

The Oyo State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Christian Wing, on Monday in Ibadan said the depreciating value of the Naira could adversely affect the 2015 pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

Mr David Ishola, Secretary to the board, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the exchange rate of the Naira to the dollar was a major determinant of the cost of pilgrimage.

He said, "the exchange rate of Naira to the dollar is a major determinant of the cost of pilgrimage.

"Last year, the Federal Government gave concessional exchange rate of one dollar to N150 but as we speak now a dollar is over N200.

"This means that this year, pilgrimage's cost will be higher and very few will be able to afford going on self-sponsored pilgrimage unless the Naira appreciates in value".

Ishola said that in 2014, only 566 Christian Pilgrims from the state journeyed to the Holy Land out of the 1,000 target the board had.

He appealed to the government not to discontinue the sponsorship of pilgrimage.

Unite Nigerians, Christians urge Buhari

THE Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN) has urged the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, to unite Christians, Muslims and those of other faith, for him to have a successful government.

CCN, one of the groups under the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), also drew Buhari’s attention to issue of power supply, as well as tackling of corruption, which cut across every sector of the government.

Its president, His Eminence Emmanuel Udofia and the general secretary, Reverend Dr Wushishi Yusuf, made the suggestions at a press briefing on Wednesday.
