The All Progressives Congress has challenged the nation’s security agencies to dig deeper and do better by ensuring that students can go to school safely across the country.
The party noted that there is no greater harm that insecurity can do to a nation than to destroy its education and the future of its youths.
In a statement issued on Tuesday following the Abductions of students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, the party noted that this abduction brings 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.
The APC believes 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. The party therefore, asked the security agencies to demonstrate this commitment by more robustly going after criminals and denying them the space to perpetrate crime.
On its 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 country.
