Metro Pakistani Activist Malala Convinces President Jonathan to meet Chibok Parents



Pakistani child activist, Malala Yousafzai, has convinced President Goodluck Jonathan to finally meet the parents of over 200 school girls who were kidnapped from government secondary School, Chibok in Borno state three months ago.

According to Premium Times, during a meeting between the President and Malala, the President announced that he was going to meet with the parents of the victims. He also promised scholarships for all the abducted school girls in any part of the country when they return home.

After the meeting, addressing the Press alongside president’s spokesperson, Reuben Abati; her dad, Ziauddin Yousafzai; and the Director of Operations of Malala Foundation, Eason Jordan; Malala said, "I am here in Nigeria on my 17th birthday for a price which is to see that every child goes to school. This year, my objective is to speak up for my Nigerian sisters about 200 of them who are under the abduction of Boko Haram and I met the president, Goodluck Jonathan, for this purpose".

"I convey the voice of my sisters who are out of school or who are still under the abduction of Boko haram. And for those girls who escaped from the abduction but still do not have education. And in the meeting, I highlighted the same issues which the girls and their parents told me in the past two days. The parents said they really want to meet with the president to share their stories with him. And I asked the president that if he wants to meet with the parents of the girls, the president assured me that he would meet with them", Malala said.
