The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has condemned Friday’s attack on Government Secondary School, Jangebe in Zamfara State, where hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted.
The party in a statement on Friday, said the terrifying spate of abduction and acts of terrorism in the country validates concerns that the All Progressives Congress and its administration have become bereft of solutions to the escalated insecurity under their watch.
The party, while calling for full-scale investigation into the abduction, said it is alarmed by the current situation wherein outlaws have turned the kidnapping of innocent school children and other vulnerable citizens for ransom, into a lucrative business following the lethargic approach and compromises under the Buhari administration.
”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.

”Instead, 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.”
It also empathized with the families of the abducted children and well as the victims of the worsened insecurity occasioned by the failures of the
