Return to school, Buhari urges Kankara schoolboys

Published

on

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

He made the appeal on Friday when he met with the 344 students at the Banquet Hall of the Government House in Katsina.

The President said they should remain focused in pursuing their interest in acquiring 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 said the unfortunate incident was a test of character and determination to succeed in life.

He said the Federal Government would upgrade the security structure in the country to ensure the safety of everyone.

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.

The 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) highest scorer, Ekene Ezeunala, has been offered scholarship to study Computer Science and Mathematics at the Columbia University in New York, United State.
He got the scholarship along with 29 other Nigerian brilliant students.
