Meets with Nigerian President

14 Jul, 2014

nigerThe Pakistani schoolgirl meets with President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria in the country’s capital, Abuja. Her visit is in support of the more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram from a school in Chibok, Nigeria on a few months ago. Over the weekend, Malala met some of the schoolgirls who were able to escape Boko Haram and the families of the missing girls, and promised to take their messages to President Jonathan. She urges President Jonathan to meet with the parents of the victims. The president says he will do so before they leave Abuja to reassure the family of the victims that the government is doing everything it can to rescue the girls. Jonathan:

Terror is relatively new here and dealing with it has its challenges. The great challenge in rescuing the Chibok girls is the need to ensure that they are rescued alive.
