The Federal Government says it has begun teaching the rescued Chibok schoolgirls how to speak proper English.
The government has also employed 20 teachers to help the girls with remedial classes.
The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan, said this in Abuja on Tuesday while receiving the recently rescued 82 Chibok schoolgirls.
At least 219 girls were kidnapped in April 2014 from Government Secondary School, Chibok
Borno State, where most of them were preparing to sit for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
About 24 were released in 2016 while another 82 were released by the Boko Haram terrorists, who abducted them over three years ago, on May 6, 2017.
After their rescue on May 6, 2017, the 82 girls were kept in a health facility under the supervision of the Department of State Services, where they underwent medical tests and treatment.
While receiving the 82 girls at the National Centre for Women Development, the minister said the 82 girls would be taught English.
The minister stated, “I thank the teachers and vocational trainers for training them. The 24 girls who could not speak good English, can now speak good English and I am sure by the time they handle the new ones (82), they will also speak good English and will be able to pass JAMB, WASSCE and NECO when they go back to school.”
The minister said by September, the rehabilitation of all the girls would have been completed and they would be enrolled in school.
