Lawan Reacts After Abduction Of Zamfara Schoolgirls

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has condemned the attack on Government Secondary School, Jangebe in Zamfara State where hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted on Friday.

Lawan, in a statement by his media aide, Ola Awoniyi, in Abuja, expressed sadness and outrage that the incident happened while efforts were still being made to rescue those abducted just over a week ago at another secondary school in Kagara, Niger State.

The Senate President said the recurrent attacks on schools and other acts of banditry called for intense soul searching on how the nation arrived at this sorry path and how to cage the monster of violent crimes in Nigeria.

Lawan also expressed his sympathy for the abducted schoolgirls and urged the authorities at all levels to work together to ensure their immediate rescue.

Ẹ kú condemnation! We are waiting for the "I'm shocked" geng. I remember during campaign that @MBuhari, said that if insurgency lasted for 1 month, the government had a hand in it.

We need an effective security arrangement

The only thing @DrAhmadLawan

does is to condemn, but does nothing. How can you have power and cannot use it. You can pressure the executives to fight insecurity. Do something for once.

Buratai will be laughing at Nigerians right now. I have come to believe that we are lacking in defence/ security equipment to fight insecurity in Nigeria. In time of peace, their was no plan to invest in defence. So countries' annual defence budget is over $100b annually

Nigerians should condemn the

@NGRSenate for failing to live up to expectation and disappointing the people they represent in the face of the worsening and persistent insecurity in our country.®[email protected]_sammy

We also condemn your action & inaction of being a rubber stamp. You and the entire Senate are one of the reasons for the kidnap. If NASS had done their work, by now, we won't have a vegetable president who's so nepotic and destroying the nation.

as the President of #RobberStamp

@NGRSenate, lacks the moral locus to condemn abduction of school girls in Zamfara. For presiding over the most irresponsible Senate in Nigeria and refusing to do the needful, he too is a part of banditry and terrorism in Nigeria.

Continue to condemn, useless Senate president.


In the history of condemnation, this one is the most useless and worthless... Oga should stop wasting condemnation...

How long should we continue to condemn all these atrocities in Nigeria. What we need is action and not to be condemning up and down. People are dieing every day.
