Kankara: Buhari shouldn’t be congratulated - Ezekwesili
Nwolu Obiajulu

Oby Ezekwesili, a former Minister of Education has said President Muhammadu Buhari should not be congratulated for securing the release of the abducted students from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State, alleging that the President created the problem.
Ezekwesili said President Buhari does not deserve commendation for ensuring the safe return of the schoolboys after six days in captivity.
She said this during an interview with Channels Television monitored by African News Today.
Ezekwesili who is a prominent campaigner of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign which pressured the government to rescue over 250 schoolgirls abducted from Chibok in Borno State, said the Buhari administration must tell Nigerians exactly what happened in Kankara when gunmen on motorcycles attacked the school and abducted hundreds of students.
The kidnap took place some hours after the President arrived his hometown, Daura, Katsina for a week-long private visit.
Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, however, announced on Thursday that 344 schoolboys were released by bandits in Zamfara State.
Reacting to the development, Ezekwesili said Buhari should be disgusted with what happened.
She said, “For us to congratulate a government that created a problem and said it solved it? We shouldn’t be doing that. The society should learn how to hold people accountable. The President should be disgusted with what happened, not commending himself. What is he clapping for? Those children were put in harm’s way. And now he said he’s rescued them? Maybe the President sent the children on an excursion to terrorists so they can release children at will to him.
“He needs to tell us exactly what happened with the Kankara kids. There is a problem. This country should not be taken for a ride by President Buhari and his government. This is very unbecoming and the whole world is laughing at us. They think we are jokers. Many countries didn’t even bother to show that anything had happened in our country because they felt who are these people and what are they doing to themselves?”
