”We want him to prioritize the security, education, and freedom of girls and women, our girls should freely go to school in a well secured environment. We have so many school girls in captivity and our president-elect should ensure our schools are safe and Nigerians are safe to practice their religion by the time he is sworn-in,” she said.


Puldu urged President Muhammadu Buhari, to use his remaining days in office to secure the release of all those in captivity.

She also appealed to terrorists to free all the girls and women in their custody to enable them pursue their dreams in life without hindrance.
