The National Leader of the ruling party of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari and the Governor of Katsina state, Governor Masari over the freed Kankara schoolboys.
Senator Bola Tinubu who joined other Nigerians to rejoice with President Buhari and the people of Katsina on the freed Kankara schoolboys, said the initial abduction of the over 300 Kankara schoolboys from their dormitory in broad daylight was unsettling and raises serious concern.
“However, their prompt rescue from their abductors is heart-warming,” he said.
Bola Tinubu, speaking further on the freed Kankara schoolboys, said:
“It vindicates President Buhari in his untiring commitment and determination to rid the country of insecurity and confront Boko Haram insurgents and bandits operating in some parts of the country.
I congratulate and commend the president for his prompt and decisive intervention. I must also congratulate Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari and men of our armed forces for bringing the boys back home,” he added.
He also said that this laudable effort must be sustained. “We must all do more to tackle the evil-doers and see the back of the Boko insurgents and bandits.
We need to upgrade our security infrastructure and re-strategize. The armed forces themselves must renew their efforts to make not only our schools safe for students but also our cities and villages.
No development can occur in a climate of fear, uncertainty, and insecurity of lives and property,” he said.
He also sent a message to the parents of the freed Kankara schoolboys, saying:
“I empathize with the agonized parents and relations of the abducted schoolboys and rejoice with them over the release of their children from the jaws of the abductors. These boys must now be reunited with their families,” he added.
