Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Monday, said it is high time President Muhammadu Buhari-led government began to live up to its responsibilities.
The former vice president stated this while condemning the abduction of students from Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
He called on President Buhari to stop pretending that all was well with Nigeria and time for the government to perform its primary responsibility which is protecting lives.
The former Vice President in a post on Twitter said, “This is one abduction too many. We cannot continue to pretend that all is well. All is not well.
“Protection of lives and property is the primary responsibility of the government. And it is time that government begins to live up to its responsibilities.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the parents and guardians of the victims of this crime against our children.
He, however, commended the security agencies for securing the release of some kidnapped students.
“I commend our military and other security agencies for securing the release of some of the kidnapped students even as I urge them to work assiduously for the release of the rest.”
