Kankara schoolboys: Tinubu notes what rescue of kidnapped students shows about Buhari

Tinubu and Buhari

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said the release of over 300 schoolboys abducted from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, has vindicated President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tinubu noted this in a statement on Saturday titled, ‘Lauding Pres. Buhari, Gov. Masari over Rescue of Kankara Schoolboys’.

He 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.

“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.”

Tinubu also applauded Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, and men of Armed Forces for “bringing the boys back home”.

He further said, “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-strategise. 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.”
