News Release: Nigeria’s “Progressive Governors’ Forum" Position On Abducted Girls


The Progressive Governors Forum, PGF is unequivocally committed to working with the Federal Government, local communities and international partners to ensure that all the school girls criminally abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state, and other places are returned to their families safe and sound.

The abduction of these innocent school children is an assault on our nation, an attack on civility and constitutionalism and colossal descent to barbarism, which is unacceptable and should be combatted by all patriots. We are therefore very grateful to all Nigerians and international community for standing by the innocent students, their parents, Chibok community and the people and government of Borno State.

We will support the parents and government of Borno State to ensure that our girls all receive treatment for the physical and psychological trauma they might have suffered in captivity. We shall also undertake the rebuilding of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok to ensure that the students are able to resume normal life once the girls are rescued.

More than ever before, we are resolute in our determination to move our dear nation forward. Successful fight against terrorism is a critical precondition for stability and constitutional governance. Together with all progressive and patriotic Nigerians we will join hands to restore peace all over Nigeria.

We have also decided to support all the victims of Nyanya bomb blast with a total sum of N100 million.

HE Owelle Rochas Okorocha,
Chairman, Progressive Governors Forum
