The Federal Government of Nigeria has mocked those described as ‘Naysayers,’ saying they have learned their lessons following the 344 Kankara schoolboys’ release.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, addressed the press on Friday in reaction to the release of the 344 schoolboys of Government Science Secondary School.
Lai Mohammed further congratulated the students’ parents and guardians, who will soon reunite with their wards and children.
Lai Mohammed also noted that the Kankara boys’ abduction marked the second of its kind under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Just like the Kankara schoolboys, all but one of the kidnapped schoolgirls from Dapchi, Leah Sharibu, were rescued unharmed, Lai Mohammed noted.
Lai Mohammed also recalled that in 2014, 276 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram terrorist group in Chibok, Borno State, adding that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration had been able to rescue over 100.
“Each time this has happened, we have always accepted responsibility, rather than being in denial.
“We will not relent until all those who remain missing in Chibok and Dapchi and reunited with their families.
“The reactions in certain quarters to the Kankara incident was shameful. Some Nigerians went as far as denigrating their government and country in the most uncouth and irresponsible manner.
“They simply threw decorum to the wind and allowed their emotions to take a better part of them. We hope the naysayers have learned their lessons.
“And we hope those who have started trading and politicking with the hashtag ‘BringBackOurBoys’ can now go home…”
