…Donate N100 For All Victims Of Nyanya Bomb Blasts
The All Progressive Governors under the umbrella of Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) have expressed concern over the growing state of insecurity and also reiterated its commitment to working with the Government as well as international partners to ensure the release of Chibok school girls from their abductors.
The governors made the resolution at the emergency meeting held in Abuja by the governors.
Speaking on behalf of the Forum, chairman of PGF, and Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha noted that the abduction of the schoolgirls is an assault to the nation, as well as an attack on civility which he described as unacceptable that should be combated by all patriots.
“We are therefore very grateful to all Nigerians and international community for standing by the innocent schoolgirls, their parents, Chibok community and the people and government of Borno State.
“The Forum therefore pledges to assist both the parents of the abducted girls and government of Borno State to foot the bill of their treatment when eventually rescued.
“Once rescued, 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” Okorocha declares
While emphasising the Forum’s determination to support fighting insurgency, Okorocha noted that successful fight against terrorism is a critical precondition for stability and constitutional governance.
Similarly, the Governor donated N100 million to support all the victims of the recent Nyanya bomb blast.
