“The APC congratulates the students and their families for regaining their freedom after being held in captivity for four days in a traumatized condition in the hands of criminals who are working against the innocent and peace loving people of Zamfara State and the entire country.
“While appreciating the efforts of the Security agencies in their collective efforts to curtail banditry, cattle rustling, kidnapping, miming and other forms of criminalities, the party wishes to call on government and security agencies to come up with solid plans for Schools protection in order not to jeopardize the girl child education and to ensure total stoppage of criminal activities in the State and country in General”.
The Party also appeals to the General Public to be steadfast in prayers seeking the divine intervention to avert all the security challenges bedeviling our progress as a state.
