President of the Senate Ahmad Lawan said the abduction of students of Government Science Secondary School (GSSS), Kankara in Katsina State, is enough warning to Nigeria to brace up in protecting her people.

Lawan said this in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Ola Awoniyi, on Friday.

 

He, however, expressed delight over the release of kidnapped students.

 

He congratulated the parents on the safe return of their children.

 

 

“The past few days have been harrowing for the parents of the students, their teachers, and all of us as a nation.

 

“The nightmare sadly reminds us of our country’s continued vulnerability to heartless crimes such as the kidnap of hundreds of schoolgirls in Chibok in 2014 and the Dapchi incident of 2018.

 

” The blemish of those earlier incidents is still on us as a country and we had hoped that the outrage that they sparked would mean such never happened again in Nigeria.

 

“This sad recurrence is, therefore, enough warning to us as a nation to deploy all the resources required for the security of our educational institutions, and indeed of everywhere else where our children gather, to protect them against cowardly attacks by primitive terrorists.

 

“I commend the prompt intervention and productive engagement of President Muhammadu Buhari, Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina state and others which resulted in the release of the children,” Lawan said.

  1. We Won’t Allow Any “Strongman” To Hijack APC – Governor Buni
    December 19, 2020 Climaxtrend

    Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni, has said his leadership will not allow any “strong man” to hijack the party.

    Gov Buni also said the caretaker committee was more interested in seeking solutions to the avalanche of challenges bedevilling the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

    He stated this during an interactive session with newsmen on Friday in Abuja with the theme: “Contestation A Veritable Process in Deepening Democratic Norms, Values and Culture: The APC Story”.

    The governor who was represented by the Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, said disputes in political party settings occured due to lack of internal democracy.

    He said,

    “No man was born a slave, so resistance to oppressive tendencies is inherent in every human being. When pushed to the wall, he/she will fight back and oftentimes the party will be distracted and this leads to avoidable loss of elections.

    “These skewed selection processes could occur due to the politics of godfatherism; where a certain strong man is allowed his way in return for patronage to the party or leaders of the party.

    “The conventional system of one strong man in politics is no longer fashionable in the APC under me.”

    The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, also admitted that there were challenges in the party, but said leaders were not distracted or overwhelmed by the challenges.

    Lawan who was represented by his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awuniyi, said, “Though there are challenges, these challenges are not always insurmountable. They are like the storm in the tea cup. They will always blow away, given our continued resolve to remain the vehicle for the emancipation of Nigeria. We have come a long way and will not be distracted.

    “The APC story is a story that is founded on fostering understanding among divergent interests. It is the story of creativity and ingenuity in the management of differences. The APC story is a story of brilliance in the administration of a plural system.”

    1. It is a real lesson to Nigerians and indeed the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Government has to tighten its belt very well to fish out bad eggs in the society. What happened to the Kankara students is a big disgrace to the Nigerian Government and indeed the military. With the presence of security personnel all over the place something like this can happen and no arrest?. Please what is the real problem in Nigeria?.

  4. To be candid, iam not happy with the things happening in Nigeria. Look at it critically. No body from other nation is now eager to invest in Nigeria because of the situation we have found ourselves. It will take us over 20 years before we could recover from the bad effects of insecurity in this country. Who ever is in support of any thing evil, or doing any thing evil, evil shall never depart from his or her house. I mean it. All of you, you will agree with me in the future.
