Nigeria's first lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has encouraged the 82 Chibok schoolgirls released to put their ordeal in the hands of boko haram terrorists behind them and refocus on a brighter future ahead of them.

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) - One of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014 and who had the opportunity to be released on Saturday chose to stay with her husband, the spokesman for Nigeria's president said Tuesday.

"We will continue to meet with the girls and monitor their health", Straziuso said. We rejoice at the return of 82 more of them and hope the rest make it home soon.

"The president made a promise that he will educate them", he said, adding that parents of the girls were anxious about having to pay for their schooling if it was not covered by the state.

Meanwhile, the dateline of Chibok girls' abduction and how the federal government was able to swapped them has been explained.

The release of the 82 girls followed negotiations led by the Nigerian government; the Swiss government also participated, while the Red Cross provided transportation for the freed girls.

Women's Affairs Minister Aisha Alhassan said the girls will be ready psychologically.

"I believe in God and I trust in God that one day they will be released", Rebecca Yaga said and her long held belief appears to have paid as she said "I see now they begin their coming out now".

"We'd like to point out that they're among thousands of victims of Boko Haram and its offshoot, ISIS West Africa, " Holt said. "But I'm keeping praying because even (if) I cry, I would not bring her back with my strength or power" she conceded. According to the United Nations, "it includes, among others, access to quality education to bridge the learning gap created during the abduction, access to reproductive health care for their sexual well-being and rehabilitation support, and a skills-acquisition programme to ease their reintegration into their society".

"We'll do it again if needed", she said in comments tweeted by Nigeria's government. "I'm happy where I am".

He also disclosed that most of the girls released were not from Chibok town but villages scattered around the area.

There are also fears some of the girls may have been radicalised while in captivity. Soon after the initial kidnapping, some of the students escaped, and a year ago, 21 girls were released as part of an International Red Cross operation.

Nigeria's government has come under fire for the length of time it has taken to reunite the former hostages with their families.

"We're negotiating seriously to have the rest of the#ChibokGirls released".
