National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has praised President Muhammadu Buhari and the governor of Katsina State, Bello Masari over the reduce of kidnapped students.
Switch had reported that bandits stormed the school last week, kidnapping hundreds of students.
In a message sent on his Twitter account, Tinubu said though the kidnap was unsettling, the prompt response and subsequent rescue was heartwarming.
“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 advised that there is a need to upgrade the country’s infrastructure and to change strategy.
“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.
“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.”
