President Goodluck Jonathan has again re-emphasized that the government will not negotiate with the Boko Haram for the release of the abducted girls, saying they must be released unconditionally.
The president re-echoed the government position at the weekend, in Abuja, at the Asu Ekiye musical concert and fund raising ceremony, held at Sheraton hotel.
The president, who was represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Youth and Students matter, Comrade Jude Imagwe, commended the resolute spirit of the Nigerians masses in the face of the insurgency, saying that the Nigeria people have won the fight against terrorism by their resolute spirit.
He urged Nigerians to support government efforts to bring back the girls adding that the terrorists have declared war on the citizens and they must rise up as one to fight and win back the country.
He said Nigerians must stop the blame game and the pull down syndrome which is distracting the fight against the insurgents.
“These are trying times for us, nobody believed that this can happen in Nigeria yesterday. No Nigerian would have imagined that a Nigerian will wake up one day to commit suicide but that is where we have found ourselves, so we must fight together.” he charged.
