Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yusuf Ibraahim Zailani on Wednesday, visited Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna to commiserate with the management of the school and parents of kidnapped students.
More than 100 students of the school were captured early Monday, July 5, 2021 in what many described as the worst kidnapping case in the state.
The Speaker who was represented by his SSA Youth, Sports and Culture, Honourable Ekene Abubakar Adams, expressed sadness over the incident and promised to work closely with the executive arm of government to ensure the kidnapped students are rescued.
Speaking during the visit, he said: ” “I’ m here on behalf of the Speaker Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yusuf Zailani who wanted to be here in person, but could not due to the demise of his sister.
“He sent me here to encourage you all at this trying times and inform you that government is never asleep over the security challenges of our dear state.”
On the issue of kidnapped students, he said, “It is unfortunate that certain people have chosen to play politics with the security challenges and our unity, but enough is enough.”
He however said, ” Let’s keep hope alive and support the government and the governor in the fight against this menace of insecurity and their agents because only our collective efforts can give us the desired results.
“I will return with your grievances to the Speaker and I believe measures will be taken and efforts made towards securing the freedom of these students I thank you all for your understand and may God Almighty help us,” he prayed.
