The leadership of the People’s Democratic Party has condemned the latest abduction of school girls in Zamfara State.
The country woke up on Friday to yet another news of a raid on yet another school, this time on Government Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, where it was gathered that a few hundred girls were kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
In their remarks, the PDP blamed the incessant attacks on the incompetence of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Only last week, gunmen had a field day invading communities after communities in Niger state, killing and maiming our compatriots after which they descended on Government Secondary School Kagara where they killed a student and abducted 40 others alongside their teachers.”
“In December, just two months ago, the nation was jolted when gunmen invaded President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state, Katsina, at the time he was holidaying in the state and abducted over 600 students of the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara.”
“Indeed, our party weeps over the unfortunate situation that our nation is being plunged into by the incompetent, deceptive and uncoordinated APC and its administration that not only caused the escalation of acts of terrorism in our country but also failed to run an effective command structure to secure the nation.APC had earlier been alerted of a link between APC and the outlaws.”
“It is unpardonable that the APC has failed to rein in their bandits, who they brought from neighboring countries to help them to muscle the 2019 electionInstead, they had allowed them to continue to invade our communities and wreak havoc on our people.
The party, therefore, charges President Buhari to step out of the Aso Rock presidential villa and ensure the immediate rescue of the abducted students.”
