Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned what he described as the increasing politicization of security in the country by opportunistic politicians.
Mr Buhari stated this on Wednesday while welcoming the release of the 27 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in Kaduna state.
He also appealed for the release of the students of Greenfield University and all other citizens held in captivity.
“I welcome the release of the 27 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, and congratulate their friends, families, and the government and people of Kaduna State. We are happy they have been released,” the president said in a series of tweet.
“I again appeal for the release of the students of Greenfield University & all other citizens held in captivity. We will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that Nigerians live in a country where everyone can move where and when they want—without the fear of kidnapping & banditry.
“I call for steadfastness & security awareness on the part of the law enforcement agencies, and citizens. Let me once again condemn the increasing politicization of security in Nigeria, by opportunistic politicians. All hands must be on deck to achieve enduring peace & security.”
