The All Progressives Congress (APC) has apologized to students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, for the trauma they were subjected to during their six days in captivity.
The ruling party assured the students that government would do everything, to ensure that their learning environment is safe and secure going forward.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the APC, Mai Mala Buni, in Abuja, on Saturday.
According to him, APC received with “joy and a glad heart” the return of the students who were abducted by terrorists from their school.
Buni also vowed that the party and President Muhammadu Buhari will work with the security agencies to ensure security of lives and property.
The statement read in part, “The party also apologised to the pupils and vow that President Buhari and the party will do all it takes to make sure that they continue to study in a safe environment.
“We want to congratulate the parents of the children and also apologise on behalf of our party that one of our biggest promises was security. Although we are doing our utmost best, such incidence is a sad event and must, at all cost not repeat itself.
“We do not doubt the capacity of our security agencies, we believe and know they are capable especially when they are well motivated and led, which we can assure is the case under President Muhammadu Buhari.”
