The governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi, has announced that automatic admission and scholarship was available for any of the girls from the Government Secondary School in Chibok who have so far been rescued/escaped from the hands of their kidnappers and was willing to take the offer.

Amaechi said this on Wednesday during the inauguration of Port Harcourt as the UNESCO World Book capital.

Meanwhile, Wole Soyinka who delivered the keynote address at the evnt criticised President Goodluck Jonathan over his “insensitivity” to the plight of victims of the Nyanya bombings in which scores of Nigerians lost their lives and the abduction of students of Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state.

According to Soyinka, it was insensitive for the president to embark on a political rally where he went dancing away just few hours after many Nigerians were mowed to death by the insurgents.
