The Minister of Education under the Olusegun Obasanjo government, Oby Ezekwesili, has accused the Muhammadu Buhari administration of creating the abduction of students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Kastina State.
The former Minister said the Buhari administration should not be congratulated over the release of the schoolboys after six days in captivity.
Ezekwesili stated this during an interview on Channels Tv, on Friday.
She called on the current government to tell Nigerians exactly what happened in Kankara when bandits attacked the school and abducted hundreds of students.
Ezekwesili in her statement 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?”
