Former Minister of Education and Presidential Candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has fired President Buhari following the kidnap of, and his statement to the rescued boys of the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State.
During an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday, Oby Ezekwesili said the countries around the world is mocking the Giant of Africa, and thinking she is nothing but a joke. This, she said is a problem that the President needs to solve.“He (Buhari) needs to tell us exactly what happened with the Kankara kids; there is a problem here. 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 did not 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?”, she said.

Describing the return of the boys as a welcome development, Oby Ezekwesili queried how it was possible for the abductors to storm the school and kidnap children of such a large number without any form of signal that such an incident was about to happen. She also wondered how governmental systems were unable to alert anyone that the children had been carted off from their school, saying the same question was asked when the Chibok girls were taken in 2014.
