The Publicity Secretary of Kaduna State All Progressive Congress (APC), Salisu Tanko Wusono has jumped to the defence of governor Nasir El-Rufai over some statements he made on kidnapping during the Goodluck Jonathan regime.
Recall Governor Elrufai had in 2014 criticised Jonathan as he called for the payment of Ransom to Bandits, Boko Haram and Kidnappers for peace to reign. With the current view of the governor who is now in power, he backtracked on his later statement and made it known that bandits should not be paid ransom to release kidnapped victims
Salisu Tanko Wusono defended the governor as he said the comment he made was right at that time because of the situation they found themselves.
He said: “I can assure anybody who cares that their efforts will fail as usual because
the state of insecurity in Nigeria as at 2014 was the foundation of what we are seeing today.
“If insecurity was nipped in the bud in 2014 by the then Peoples Democratic Party led Government it would not have snowballed into a gargantuan monster of insecurity as typified by Boko Haram, Kidnapping, Cattle rustling and Banditry as being witnessed across the country today.
“I think that was the basis of El-rufai’s comments at that time when he called for payment of ransom to free kidnapped school girls. But things have changed between 2014 and 2021 and therefore we need to change with the trends of events to face current realities on ground.
“No ransom payment policy of the Kaduna State Governor stands because the payment of Ransom have proved to be ineffective in Zamfara and Katsina States where bandits have kidnapped several citizens”.
