The President of Christ Apostolic Church, Worldwide, Pastor Abraham Akinosun, on Friday commended President Muhammadu Buhari over the release of 21 out of the over 200 girls abducted in their school in Chibok, Borno State in 2014.

He said whatever method used to ensure the release of the girls was immaterial as the end justified the means.

The clergyman, who had earlier paid a courtesy visit on Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, spoke at the Pastors’ Conference of the church.

The pastor said, “We are very happy at the release of the girls.

“Some were saying Boko Haram prisoners were exchanged for the girls, some said they were freely released, whatever the method used, the end seems to justify the means.

“All we are after is for the rest of the girls to be released to join their families. That is what will give us lasting happiness.”

He urged the President to expedite action on the release of the remaining girls.

Akinosun also commended the Federal Government and the Nigerian Armed Forces for keeping the Boko Haram sect at bay.

He, however, advised them not to think that the battle had been completely won until the last bastion of Boko Haram insurgents had been routed.
