Katsina kidnappings: Nigerians beat Buhari as president visits ranch and avoids school
Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja
A video showing the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired), visiting his cows in Daura Katsina state, just hours after hundreds of boys were kidnapped by bandits, drew criticism from multiple social network users.
Students at Government Boys Science Secondary School in Kankara Local Government Zone, Katsina State, were abducted by gunmen who came on motorcycles at around 11 p.m. Friday evening.
In a video posted to social media on Monday by Sahara journalists With the December 12, 2020 timestamp, however, Buhari is seen with his helpers touring his ranch.
The video comes barely a day after Buhari, who is also in Katsina state, did not visit the school but instead sent a delegation from Abuja to visit the school and sympathize with the families of the victims.
Sahara journalists Editor Omoyele Sowore said it was obvious Buhari was not competent and it was time for him to leave.
“600 students were kidnapped in Katsina and he ignored them instead, the lifeless president went to visit his cows!” The moment we understand that the Buhari regime cannot be redeemed, we will come to the inevitable conclusion that #Buharimustgo, ”Sowore tweeted.
@TFatombi, “Cows with advantages. 600 lives meant nothing to him.
“Where a man’s treasure is, this is where his heart is,” tweeted @ AdemolaAgunbia3.
Another tweet wondered how Nigerians would ensure Buhari’s incompetence for the next three years.
@iamscorefield tweeted: “Is this the president you want to rule until 2023? Remember we are still in 2020. We better focus on #BuhariMustResign not #Endsars.
@ Thedarkhorse123 said the recent kidnapping of schoolchildren could be worse than the kidnapping of Chibok girls in 2014 if urgent action is not taken.
“It looks like if we don’t do anything in the next 24 hours, we might have another Chibok case on our hands. Whenever this happens and is ignored for two to three days, the window closes! The state government says 300 (missing) while Garba Shehu says 10 students. We’re in deep trouble, ”he tweeted.
