The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday said only God knows when the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in captivity Leah Sharibu will be freed.
Mr Adesina said despite relying on the Supreme Being, the Federal Government is working hard to ensure she is rescued from her abductors.
“When will she be back? That question can only be answered by God, but I believe that God is interested in that young girl,” he said.
“The Government is working on and at it, and we believe she will be back”.
His comments come after an audio recording of Leah obtained exclusively and published by online newspaper TheCable, had her pleading to the presidency to intervene and set her free.
“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.
Leah was one of the over 100 schoolgirls abducted in February from the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe State.
She was kept in captivity by the terrorists reportedly for refusing to renounce Christianity and convert to Islam.
