President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed anger over attempts by terrorists and bandits to destroy public school system through kidnapping of students and workers in schools
In a statement today, March 13 by the senior special assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, the President, stressed that his government will not sit by and watch criminals disrupt the school system.
The President commended efforts of the Kaduna State government and early response of the military which led to the rescue of 180 students, including eight staff members and urged that the others declared missing be found and returned safely to their families.
He also commended efforts and contributions of local intelligence in significantly thwarting the kidnappers’ move.
“Our military may be efficient and well-armed but it needs good efforts for the nation’s defense and the local population must rise to this challenge of the moment.”
This was even as he expressed sympathy with the victims of the incident and hoped for an early end to the ordeal of those still held captive.
