Released girls to undergo spiritual rehabilitation –Presidency
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, has said the released Chibok schoolgirls will undergo several months of spiritual, psychological and physical rehabilitation before they are reunited with their families.
Adesina said this during a live television programme on Channels Television, ‘Sunrise Daily’.
He also revealed that the 21 schoolgirls that were rescued in October last year had yet to be fully re-integrated with their families.
When asked to explain why the girls had yet to be returned to their parents, he said, “It is because the rehabilitation and re-integration is a process. Since they came back, they have undergone physical rehabilitation, spiritual rehabilitation, psychological reconditioning, meeting with their families and going on holiday with their families.’’
When asked if it was the same programme the rescued 81 girls would undergo, Adesina said it was likely.
He added, “It is most likely, but as you progress, you know you may add and subtract, but most likely, it is going to be the same process, but from some lessons learnt from the 21, there may be improvements with the 82.”
