Chibok Principal Nominated As Borno Commissioner For Education

BORNO State governor Kashim Shettima has nominated the principal of the Government Girls Secondary School (GGSC) Chibok Hadjiya Asabe Kwambura as the new commissioner for education.
In a surprise development, Governor Shettima has forwarded Hadjiya Kwambura's name to the Borno State House of Assembly. She will now be screened by the house and if approved by its members, will assume office as the new Borno State education commissioner.

Hadjiya Kwambura was the GGSS principal when Boko Haram abducted 234 pupils from the school in April last year in the middle of the night. Although she was not on campus at the time of the abduction, having travelled to Maiduguri for a medical check-up, Hadjiya Kwambura was informed on the night and informed about the kidnapping.

She later went to see President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja to brief him about the abduction, where she held a press briefing with his wife Patience. It was Hadjiya Kwambura who revealed that the kidnappers were disguised as soldiers and convinced the girls that they came to protect them from Boko Haram insurgents but by the time they discovered that they were not security men, it was too late.
