about what he wants the US to do for Nigeria as it relates to the fight
against Boko Haram

equipping and in intelligence gathering for Nigeria to be able to fight
Boko Haram” – he said

As regards speculation that Boko Haram wants to trade some of their
members in prison for the kidnapped Chibok girls, President Buhari said

leadership coming up and claiming that they can deliver. We have to be
very careful indeed and we are taking our time because we want to bring
them safe back to their parents and their school”he said

“I cannot be against it because as I told you our main objective as a
government is to rescue those girls back to their schools and rehabilitate
them back to normal sight. If we are convinced that the leadership that
presented itself can deliver those girls safe and should, we will be
prepared to negotiate what they want”he said

that can escape justice”he said
