Sen. Ndume proposes a plan to stop school kidnappings

Sen. Ali Ndume (APC-Borno), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, has called on the federal government to rethink the Safe School Initiative in order to address the issue of mass abduction.

Ndume delivered the advice while addressing in Abuja on Wednesday after the Senate approved a bill to construct the Federal College of Education (FCE) Gwoza.

He said the kidnapping of students was a temporary setback, but that Nigerians were tenacious people who would pull through.

“The people are resilient, and they understand the value of education. I’m confident they will not be deterred by the scenario. We’ll find a way out.

“I believe that it is past time for the federal government to rethink the safe school project in order to make our schools safer.

“That is being looked into by the House of Representatives. “I am aware that Gordon Brown was meant to chair the program, and various donations were made in that regard,” he continued.
