What Obasanjo told parents of Chibok schoolgirls



Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Saturday received some of the parents of the abducted Chibok girls, who are still kept in an undisclosed location by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

The girls were abducted from the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Bornu State, in July 2014.
The Chibok parents included 17 women and 13 men. They met with Obasanjo in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital and pleaded with him to prevail on the Federal Government and the international community to expedite action towards freeing their 112 daughters still in Boko haram captivity.
In response, Obasanjo quoted bible passages to encourage the parents and reminded them that God has a purpose for everything.
“I want to share with you some of my own thought about the sovereignty of God and what he can do. He is all knowing, powerful and can do anything.
“I want to share some passages in the bible. Some of the passages in the bible have similar passages in the Holy Qur’an. (John 16vs 33). I have told you this that you may have peace and confidence in me, but I the world, you will have tribulations, trials and distress, and be undaunted for I have overcome the world.
“That is our Lord Jesus talking to his disciples and all of us who are Christians are Jesus disciples. Jesus did not say we will not have Tribulations in the world, he said we will have tribulations, trials and distress. Our faith will be tested.
“Whatever God allows to happen, he allows it for a good purpose, to test our faith and it is in testing of our faith that our character is shaped and strengthened.
“I understand how you feel now, I understand your pain and your anguish, God never does evil whatever happens to strengthen and make us perfect,” he said.
