The United States Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said on Monday America is ready to coordinate efforts to rescue the school girls abducted at the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, by suspected Boko Haram fighters, adding the U.

The kidnapping is one of the largest since the jihadist group abducted more than 270 schoolgirls from the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014.

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday declared that NIGERIA would prefer to have the Chibok and Dapchi schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram back alive through negotiations rather than adopt a military option.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while receiving the United States Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

"First, we respect the responsibilities of the government of Nigeria and the territorial integrity of Nigeria". They reviewed plans for presidential elections in 2019, and considered opportunities to promote Nigeria's economic recovery, enhance trade, and increase investment.

Schuchat said that Cunningham was promoted to commander effective July 1 "in recognition of his exemplary performance in the U.S. Police said Cunningham called his mother, who missed the call, and he didn't leave a voicemail, WGCL-TV reports.

He commended Nigeria for the leadership role it has played in the Multinational Joint Task Force as the Lake Chad Basin Countries fight to lessen the influence and terrorist acts of Boko Haram and the Islamic State in West Africa, in their domains. But we have been supporting, equipping, training and when we can provide information.

She said they would go there, sit, listen and talk to one another about managing situations as traumatized parents whose daughters were still in Boko Haram's hands. I think that is the best way we have been helping the government of Nigeria secure the release of the girls, which we hope, will be done in a peaceful manner.

Tillerson also stressed the need to increase the volume of trade between the US and Nigeria which he said stood at nine billion dollars.

Meanwhile, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, while reacting to claims earlier made by the government that Boko Haram has been degraded, recanted by saying what the Federal Government actually meant was that the sect members now lacked the capacity to hold any territory to ransom.
