President Muhammadu Buhari

By Abubakar Ahmed

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that last Friday’ abduction of female students from Government Girls Science Secondary School, Jangebe, will be the last to happen.

The president’s statement was relayed on Sunday, through Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, who led a high-powered federal government delegation to sympathise with the people and government of Zamfara.

He said new measures had been developed by the federal government which would bring complete end to all forms of criminality in the nation.

“The President is saddened by the abduction of the students from Jangebe and reassures you that the government has all the resources and wherewithal to contain these criminals.

“Buhari also commended Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara’s efforts against armed banditry and promised continued support to bring lasting peace.

“The federal government will continue its partnership with Zamfara government and its citizens in resolving the security challenges facing the state,” Buhari said.

In his response, Gov. Matawalle appreciated Buhari and the federal government’s concern, noting that very soon the abductees would regain their freedom.

“I strongly believe in the president and his effort in fighting all forms of insurgence and urge him to improve on the nation’s security.

”This is by ensuring synergy among the security agencies so that confrontations with criminals can be coordinated on ground and air simultaneously,” the governor said.

Other members of the delegation were the Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Maigari Dingyadi, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Hajiya Sa’adiya Umar-Faruk, and Minister of Women Affairs, Mrs. Pauline Tallen.


  1. Yeah!right? Mr president you didn’t say anything we’ve not heard before,same old same. There are many flaws with the current system. Why are you guys scared of something different, Confederation? Break down the damn too big country to smaller units with the central government having the defense.

    • With abundant young men and women, why can’t Nigeria have State Police with the state of art equipment and technology? Why not, such a large country with no security. We are talking about internal security, why not?

  2. Story for the gods.

    You deployed your policemen and other fulanized security agencies to the south east where their services are partly needed whereas the north that has major issues with insecurity doesn’t have huge police and military presence.

    There are 10 police checkpoints in every 5 kilometers in the south east whereas the terrorists that abduct school children in the north travel 100 kilometers without going through any police checkpoints.

    And someone is telling Nigerians and the world that this is going to be the last abductions. What a funny claim.

    What a misplaced priority. What a government without brain.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.
