The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, said the federal government is very focused on finding other Chibok school girls in the custody of Boko Haram.
Osinbajo made this known while receiving a delegation of the United States Congress led by Christopher Coons, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday.
â€œIt is a front burner issue for us all the time, there is no question of not continuing to negotiate and looking for the girls.â€™â€™
He expressed gratitude to God for the hope that the girls are still alive and would be released.
The Vice President noted that â€œnegotiations were continuing and government would keep looking for the opportunity to bring them back.â€™â€™
Osinbajo also thanked the U.S. government for its recent decision to sell Super Tucano aircraft to Nigeria to aid its fight against insurgency in the North-East.
Coons said the visit was to reaffirm the relationship between Nigeria and the U.S., noting that the U.S. has â€œan enduring enthusiasm and partnership with Nigeria.â€™â€™
Other members of the Congressional delegation include Gary Peters, Jeff Merkley, Michael Bennet, Â Lisa Blunt Rochester, Terri Sewell, Charlie Dent, Barbara Lee and Frederica Wilson.
The delegation was accompanied by the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington.
