President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday reiterated the federal government’s resolve to negotiate with Boko Haram for the safe return of abducted Chibok school girls, saying their release will be one his greatest achievements as president.

He, however, warned that he will not “fall for the antics of fraudsters” demanding money from the government to help negotiate the release.

The President made this known when he received the Primate and Archbishops of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) at the State House.

He insisted that government would vet anyone claiming to hold the girls before agreeing to negotiate.

President Buhari also assured that government will pay attention to the clean-up of Ogoniland.

“We inherited the United Nations Environmental Project report from the previous administration. We decided it needed urgent attention, in spite of the economic crunch because of our concern for the welfare and environmental comfort of the people of Ogoniland,” the statement quoted the President.

Leader of the delegation and Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev Nicholas Okoh, promised the support of the church for government’s efforts in securing and improving the welfare of Nigerians.
