President Goodluck Jonathan has been asked to do everything in his power to rescue the over 200 female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, who were abducted a year ago by members of the Boko Haram sect before May 29 hand-over date of the current administration.

House of Representatives on Tuesday made this call to the presidency and security operatives saying it was a shame and embarrassing that the girls were still with their abductors a year after they were kidnapped.
The abduction of the Chibok girls by Boko Haram insurgents has led to outrage both within and outside the country.

Describing their abduction as a national embarrassment, the House charged the Presidency and security operatives to ensure that the girls were rescued before the expiration of the President Goodluck Jonathan's administration.

According to Sun online, the House's resolution followed a motion under matters of national importance, sponsored by Abike Dabiri-Erewa (Lagos, APC).

The Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, said:"As a nation, we must do everything humanly possible to recover these girls.
"We pray that God in his infinite mercy should guide our security agents on the recovery of the girls."

He lamented that the claim by security operatives that they knew the whereabouts of the girls was not correct, saying:"As a government we should do everything possible to bring them back."

President Jonathan has been heavily criticized for his failure to respond quickly enough to the abduction of the school girls. The president himself has remained calm and assured that the military is working hard to rescue the girls and liberate Nigeria of the Chibok girls.

Col. Sambo Dasuki, the National Security Adviser (NSA) retired, on Sunday (the anniversary of the kidnaping of the Chibok girls) assured Nigerians that the federal government was making every effort to enable that the girls along with every other Nigerian kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists are freed.

The security adviser also stated that the girls will be rescued before May 29.
