Mrs Pauline Tallen, the Minister of Women Affairs, yesterday paid a visit to the New Foundation School (NFS), Yola Adamawa.
Also, with her on the visit was outgoing Miss Nigeria, Chidimma Aaron.
The NFS located inside the premises of the American University of Nigeria (AUN) is a special education facility for the rescued students of Chibok following the April 2014 Boko Haram abduction incident.
The minister commended the girls for their courage and resilience, adding that as their, “mother” she would continue to be there for them, anytime.
She explained that her visit was to hear from them, get an update about their welfare and know the progress of their academic and other trainings.
“The Federal Government would continue to take care of their needs as well as provide necessary materials for development”, Tallen added.
In her remarks, Aaron stressed the need for young women to continue to maintain their dignity and esteem.
“It was a great moment for me, seeing those strong women who in the past went through horrible experiences. They are real women, confident and ready to face the future,” the beauty queen stated.
