President Muhammadu Buhari said on Thursday that he is committed to rescuing all the girls that were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents including Leah Sharibu who was reportedly held back by the terrorists over her decision not to convert from Christianity to Islam.

Speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, the President said government would not relent in efforts to bring Leah Sharibu safely back home to her parents as it has done for the other girls after she was held back by the terrorists over her decision, as reported, not to convert from Christianity to Islam.

The President said he is conscious of his duty under the constitution to protect all Nigerians irrespective of faith, ethnic background or geopolitical location, and would not shirk in this responsibility.

He assured the Sharibu family that he would continue to do all he can to ensure that they also have cause to rejoice with their daughter soon.
