A popular, and number one critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration, Reno Omokri is surprisingly praising the President for using Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria sometimes called MACBAN to rescue abducted schoolboys in Katsina State.
While the President has gotten some knocks for using the group, Miyetti Allah to rescue the abducted schoolboys after some ransom was allegedly paid, the President has received some praise from his number critic, Reno Omokri.
Reno Omokri while reacting to some Nigerians who have questioned and condemned the President for using Miyetti Allah as negotiators for the release of the abducted Kankara schoolboys, said although he opposes the President, he will not join to condemn him for his move. He said as a parent, if his children were among the abducted kankara schoolboys, he will do everything possible to get them back. And the President has done the right thingg.
Taking to his official Twitter handle on Friday 18th December 2020, he tweeted this saying:
“I oppose General #Buhari, nevertheless, I don’t condemn his use of Miyetti Allah to secure #KankaraBoys release. As a parent, if my children were among #KankaraStudents, I‘d do ANYTHING to get them back. It is easy to condemn when it is other people’s children #OurBoysAreBack,” he said.
The over 300 abducted Kankara schoolboys from the all-boys Government Science Secondary School in northwestern Katsina state, were abducted last Friday.
Around 800 students had been present at the school when it was attacked by armed men on December 11, with hundreds held captive by Abu Shekau’s jihadists.
Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari announced on Thursday that 344 boarding school students have now been turned over to security officials.
The abducted Kankara schoolboys who were released on Friday, are already getting set to meet with the President, Governors of Kano and Kaduna State, in Katsina today.
