She quickly used the opportunity to call on the Jonathan’s administration to address the nation on the security situation, particularly, the North-East of the country, and outline any security plan to contain Boko Haram. She further urged the administration to immediately rescue the girls taken captive at Chibok. She believes that the Federal Government is capable of rescuing the girls from their captors because Nigeria has over 67 security agencies which include the SSS, army, Navy, Air force, Police, Civil Defence, NDLEA, Customs, Immigration So that the capture of the girls will not end up like the Malaysian flight MH370 that went missing and has not be found till date. Mrs. Iketubosin-Harry emphasized that the Association is deeply concerned about the girls and hoped that they would come out without any harm.
