If I Wasn’t Educated, I Will Not be Standing in Front of You – President Buhari Tells Kankara Schoolboys to Return to School

President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to the rescued students of Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State, to return to school.

The President said this on Friday December 18, when he met with the 344 students at the Banquet Hall of the Government House in Katsina State.

Buhari who disclosed that he became President of Nigeria by going to school, told the students to remain focused in pursuing their interest in acquiring a good education, despite the misfortune of kidnapping.

He said;

“If I wasn’t educated, I will not be standing here today in front of you. I schooled in Katsina for nine years. I moved on to join the army, served as a governor, Head of State, went to prison, came out, and later joined politics.

“I contested presidential elections three times, and finally I was declared a winner in 2015.

“My dear children, don’t be discouraged with what has happened; give your attention to acquiring knowledge and developing good character, and you will be distinguished in life. I know that you have been through a lot.

“The suffering you went through, please put it aside and try to forget the painful experience. There is no substitute for a good education, so you must return to school and continue.”

Buhari also described the unfortunate incident as a test of character and determination to succeed in life, and added that the Federal Government would upgrade the security structure in the country to ensure that everyone is safe.

The Armed Forces Know Their Job – President Buhari Hails Military as Abducted #Katsina Students Regain Their Freedom

President Buhari has reacted to the news of the release of the abducted Kankara students.

In a statement released by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari hailed the Army for working to get the boys reunited with their families. He said the Armed forces know their job and are highly motivated.

Read the statement below

”President Muhammadu Buhari has welcomed release of kidnapped students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, describing their safe return as a big relief to their families, the entire country and international community.

In a short remark shortly after their release was announced, President Buhari expressed the nation’s appreciation for the steps taken by all involved to make their release possible.

President Buhari specifically cited what he called the “spirit of partnership and the collaborative efforts of the government of Katsina, Zamfara and military leading to the release.’’

He commended the nation’s intelligence agencies, the military and police force for providing the environment for safe release of the hostages.

“The Governor, Aminu Bello Masari, and the army worked extremely hard. As soon as I got the information I congratulated them. The Armed Forces know their job. They have been well trained and properly motivated.”

On the issue of detainees held elsewhere in the country by either terrorists or bandits, the President gave assurances that his administration is aware of its responsibility to protect the life and property of the Nigerians.

President Buhari urged the citizens to be patient and fair to the administration as it deals with the problems of security, economy and corruption.

He noted that the administration was fully aware that it was elected to resolve challenges.

“When we came, we made efforts that yielded the return of the Chibok Girls. When a similar incident of school abduction happened at Dapchi, we successfully returned all but one of the more than one hundred abductees. When this latest incident happened, we put in our efforts and today we have this result to show.”

The President pointed to the successes of the administration in dealing with security in the South South and North East.

He said the North West now presents a challenge which his administration is determined to deal with.

“We have a lot of work to do, especially now that we have re-opened the borders. It is unfortunate that the bandits and terrorists continue to get weapons even under the circumstances of the border closure. We are going to dare them. We will deal with all that,” the President further assured.

He prayed for the full recovery of the students, whom he said had endured significant hardships in the course of their six-day ordeal.

The President assured of the determination of his administration to return to safety all citizens held against their will” .

Econet Begins Construction Of $100m Data Centre In Lagos

The Founder, Econet Global and owner of Liquid Telecom, Strive Masiyiwa, says work has commenced on a new data centre facility in Lagos valued at $100m. 

Masiyiwa said the data centre, which would be the largest facility outside South Africa, had been named Africa Data Centre, Atlantic and would be built on five acres of land.

While displaying the architectural design of the data centre made by Trevor Juul in a Facebook post, he said the facility would be powered by solar energy and natural gas.

As part of the investment in Nigeria, he said Liquid’s Undersea cables company would land a new high capacity cable into Nigeria next year in partnership with Google.

This, according to him, will make data costs much cheaper and faster.

He said, “This week marked the start of the construction of our first major data centre facility in Lagos, Nigeria. Named the ADC Atlantic, this is a US$100m investment in the Nigerian economy. In the Data Centre world, this will be the largest facility outside South Africa.

“This cable which is in partnership with Google will also extend all the way to Cape Town, South Africa. We are also going to start laying new fibres in major cities from next year,” he said.

He added, “This is our largest investment in Nigeria since the mobile industry started.

Once again, I am kicking off a new revolution in the next phase of technology. What is important is not the data centre but the technologies that will be unleashed in Nigeria because of this infrastructure. That’s the big deal here!”

Liquid Telecom had raised $307m through a rights issue to fund a rapid expansion of its data centre business across Africa.

The rights issue included an additional $40m from UK development finance institution, CDC Group Plc.

Masiyiwa first invested in Nigerian mobile telecom industry in 2001, after MTN, before selling its shares to Celtel and then Bharti Airtel.

President Buhari is Not in Charge, Kidnap of Schoolboys in His Home State is a Slap on His Face – Wole Soyinka Says

Soyinka and Buhari
Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka has reacted to the kidnap of schoolboys from a Government Secondary School in Kankara community of Katsina State; home state of President Buhari.

In a statement titled “INFRADIG–A presidential comeuppance”, the playwright stressed that President Buhari is not in charge as the “abduction once again of the nation’s children” in his terrain is “a slap across the face of the Commander-in-Chief”.

Recalling how President Buhari declined appearing before the National Assembly to answer questions of the rising insecurity in the country, Soyinka stated that such action is “frightening”.

He wrote;

“That, to come to the present, constituted Buhari’s response to the National Assembly’s invitation to drop in for a chat. He did not consider it infradig at the beginning. He responded to the polite invitation to rub minds urgently over a people’s security anxieties as one who still struggled to preserve the tattered remains of his ‘Born-Again’ democratic camouflage.

“However, his reversal of consent raised yet again the frightening situation report I have fervently posed: Buhari is not in charge. Whoever is, that segment of the cabalistic control obviously cornered him on the way to the lawmakers’ chambers and urged: Don’t! Their invitation is infradig! He succumbed.

“Beneath the dignity of a Commander-in-Chief! Well. The opportunistic homicidal respondents -Bandits/Boko Haram or whoever – thereupon picked up the gauntlet and provided a response in their own language: abduction once again of the nation’s children. They handed him a slap across the face, on his home terrain, taunting: See if that is more suited to your dignity.”.

Lekki Shooting: Segalink Condemns CNN, Says Their Report is ”Complicit”

Nigerians on Twitter are currently reacting to a thread by activist and member of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry, Segun Awosanyo, popularly known as Segalinks, stating that international media platform CNN is ‘complicit’ and has failed to defend its globally publicized investigation on the Lekki tollgate shooting.

Segalinks shared this thought while reacting to the lingering drama surrounding the BBC Sex for Grades documentary.

While reacting to the controversy surrounding the ownership of the documentary, Segalinks threw shade at some persons who have tried to” re-write history by attempting to sell the #EndSARS and #ReformPoliceNG as a Protest”. According to him, this set of persons want to ”own it and weaponize it against the state at the expense of the vulnerable in society and our democracy!”.

The activist went on to accuse CNN of being complicit in the agenda of the said people.

One thing is certain…you can’t intimidate the truth & neither can you wish it away. Lies pushed with the vilest of hate still can’t prevent the truth from appearing. The desperation of the socially maladjusted is obvious just for the lust for fame & fortune. #EndHypocrisy

These are the ones seeking to re-write history by attempting to sell the #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG as a Protest. They want the world to believe it started months ago. They want to own it & weaponize it against the state at the expense of the vulnerable in society & our democracy!

The plot is thicker than you know and soon it will all be revealed. CNN is complicit in this as they have demonstrably failed to defend their globally publicized “investigation” even before an independent truth panel. You still think the chaos was based on care for your security?

The #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG Advocacy as executed by @SIAF_NG

is policy driven. It has nothing to do with Regime change or mob rule. It is undeterred and running undisturbed. It is not also about dependency on any individual but about sanitizing the criminal justice system.”

Some Nigerians however felt it was improper for him as a member of the judicial panel to make such a comment about CNN and its refusal to appear before the panel of inquiry.
