The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said only God can tell when the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in captivity, Leah Sharibu will be freed.
Adesina made the remark on Tuesday during an interview program aired on Channels Television.
The presidential aide said the government is doing everything it could to make sure the schoolgirl regains her freedom.
His words: “When will she be back? That question can only be answered by God, but I believe that God is interested in that young girl.
“The Government is working on and at it, and we believe she will be back”.
Earlier on Monday, an audio recording of Leah, was released.
In the recording, the schoolgirl pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to help her regain freedom. She also sought help from her family.
Adesina explained that her plea won’t be in vain.
“Early in the life of this administration, the President said that whatever it will take to bring back the Chibok girls back he will do including paying.
“The President is on record for having said that,” Mr Adesina said.
He, however, dismissed claims that Boko Haram was paid for the release of the Dapchi girls.
“For the release of Dapchi girls, there were no payments made,” he said.
Leah, one of the over 100 schoolgirls abducted in February from the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe State, was kept in captivity by the terrorists reportedly for refusing to renounce Christianity.
She was the only Christian among the girls.
