GEJ promises to meet Chibok girls' parents after meeting with Malala

President Jonathan yesterday promised girl-child education campaigner Malala Yousafzai that he will meet the parents of the missing Chibok girls. He's promised to do all he can to rescue the girls but he never attempted to go to Chibok and never requested to meet with the missing girls' parents...until Malala convinced him to do so. Speaking after the closed door meeting at the state house, Malala said

"I met with the parents of these girls who are still under the abduction of Boko Haram and they were crying and hopeless. But still, they have this hope that there is still someone who can help them. They asked me if there is any chance for them to meet the President because at this time, they need the President’s support, so I asked the President if it is possible for him to go and see them to encourage them and the President did promise me that he will meet the parents of these girls.

“I spoke to the President about the girls who complained that they could not go to school despite the fact that they want to become doctors, engineers and teachers. But the government is not providing them any facility. They also need health facility, security and the government is not doing anything.
