President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has averred that the return of the 344 Kankara School Boys is an indication that the administration has the capacity to protect Nigerians.
In a statement obtained by TNC, Garba said the return of the boys who were kidnapped from the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, in Katsina State would be celebrated in any decent part of the world where empathy overrides cheap politics.
He said “The outpouring of sighs, cries of relief and joy over the return of the boys reverberated beyond their immediate families. As the news spread far and wide, the global community is cheering the boys’ reunion with their families.
In the statement, titled “FIVE TAKEAWAYS FROM THE SAFE RETURN OF 344 KANKARA SCHOOLBOYS,” Garba said the development is a huge relief for the government.
Below are the FIVE TAKEAWAYS as outlined by Garba:
Under enormous pressures from local and international sources, those charged with coordinating the boys’ safe return held tight, stayed focused, refusing to succumb to doubts, taunts, and conspiracy theories. They eventually got the job done most transparently and brought back the boys.
