National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari over what he described as “his prompt intervention” in rescuing the over 344 kidnapped students of Kankara Government Science Secondary School in Katsina State.
Tinubu also commended Katsina State governor Aminu Bello Masari and the armed forces for working tirelessly to secure the release of the schoolboys.
In a statement made available to journalists yesterday, Tinubu said the quick release of the schoolboys from their abductors had vindicated the president in his untiring efforts to rid the country of insecurity and see the back of bandits and insurgents in the land.
“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.
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.
“This laudable effort must be sustained. We must all do more to tackle the evil-doers and see the back of the Boko Haram insurgents and bandits.
