President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken on the successful rescue of the abducted Kankara students by the Nigerian Army.
Last night, Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari announced the release of the school boys of Government Science Secondary School, who were abducted last week.
Buhari has now described the release of the schoolboys as a big relief to their families, the entire country and international community.
He expressed the nation’s appreciation for the steps taken by all involved to make their release possible.
“The Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, and the army worked extremely hard,” the president said. “As soon as I got the information I congratulated them. The Armed Forces know their job. They have been well trained and properly motivated.”
He also went on to urge citizens to be patient and fair to the administration as it deals with the problems of security, economy and corruption.
He noted that the administration was fully aware that it was elected to resolve challenges.
“When we came, we made efforts that yielded the return of the Chibok Girls. When a similar incident of school abduction happened at Dapchi, we successfully returned all but one of the more than one hundred abductees. When this latest incident happened, we put in our efforts and today we have this result to show.”
The President pointed to the successes of the administration in dealing with security in the South South and North East.
