We Will Work With FG To Improve Security Situation, APC Assures Nigerians
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured Nigerians that the party will work with the Federal Government to improve the security situation in the country.
The assurance came after about 500 students were abducted from Government Science Secondary School Kankara in Katsina State on Sunday, the nation learnt again that more than 330 of those students are still missing.
In a statement by the Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni, “This is a particularly sad and difficult moment not just for the families of the student victims and the government and people of Katsina State for the entire country. Our thoughts and prayers are therefore with the victims and their families as well as the government and people of Katsina State.
“These abductions bring to mind the sad incidents in Chibok and Dapchi in
Borno and Yobe States respectively a few years ago where students undergoing
their studies and working hard to become tomorrow’s leaders were abducted by
insurgents and made to go through appallingly harrowing experiences.
“As the Buhari administration works harder to improve the security situation in
the country, the APC calls on the nation’s security agencies to dig deeper and
do better by ensuring that our students can go to school safely and learn all
across the country. There is no greater harm that insecurity can do to a nation
than to destroy its education and the future of its youths”.
The party noted that the security agencies have the will, commitment, and
training to restore public confidence in their ability to secure the lives and
property of Nigerians. They should therefore demonstrate this commitment by
more robustly going after criminals and denying them the space to perpetrate
“On our part, the APC assures Nigerians that it will continue to work with the
Federal Government, security agencies, governors, emirs, community leaders, and all other stakeholders to address and improve the security situation in the
The APC calls on Nigerians to continue to partner with the federal government
and the security agencies so that together we can restore peace and sanity in our
streets, on our roads, and all across the nooks and crannies of the country.
We pray that the ongoing effort to free the abducted GSSS Kankara students
will be successful.
