Surrender to eriminals is not an option- KDSG
Amidst the violence unleashed by criminal elements on the people of Kaduna State, some commentators have responded by blaming KDSG for asserting that the duty of the state is to uphold the law and not to reward hoodlums for violating the lives, property and liberties of citizens.

Those pushing that kind of narrative are sharing a video clip of a 2014 interview in which Malam Nasir El-Rufai called on the government of President Goodluck Jonathan to use all options, including negotiation, to rescue the Chibok girls. The years since
2014 may have led some people to forget the denial and doubt that defined the FG's response to the Chibok abductions, especially the initial refusal to acknowledge that it happened.

That was the context under which civic pressures were brought on the government. Nigeria's journey since the 2014 Chibok tragedy has proven that the solution to violent crimes, including terrorism and banditry, is a robust response from the state and its coercive agencies. The quantum of money paid as ransom following many negotiations with bandits have not stopped kidnappings, reduced their frequency or deterred the criminals.

The experience of many states in the Northwest of Nigeria since 2015 has included cattle rustling, kidnappings, killings and the devastation of communities by criminals. Several states sought to negotiate their way out of the problems by talking to bandits, paying them money or offering them amnesty. This has not worked and has only encouraged the criminals to press ahead for a surrender of the public treasury to them. That is clearly not in the public interest.

Mass abduction was like in novelty in 2014. But the facts have changed since then. Negotiations and ransoms have been undertaken, but these have not stopped the criminals. It has only encouraged them. It is only prudent to review one's position when the facts change, and the suggestion made by a citizen years ago cannot be taken as the immutable answer to a serious problem which has evolved since 2014, no matter the Viral replays of the said video clip.

The Kaduna State Government has been consistently transparent about its security challenges. It has supported and continues to resource the security agencies in the state. We are engaging the Federal Government to have security responses that move away
from reactive response of repelling bandits towards a comprehensive, proactive offensive that takes the battle to the criminals and uproots them. As a sub-national, with no direct control of any of the security agencies, we cannot make this task more difficult by giving criminals the resources to acquire more arms.

KDSG regrets the recent kidnaps and killings of students from tertiary institutions in our state, and we sympathize with their families with whom we share the aim of the safe return of all the students. We mourn the dead students and we offer our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

The ruthless and heartless resort of the kidnappers to murdering these young persons is part of their effort to further their
blackmail and compel us to abandon our 'no-ransom, no negotiation' policy. Are people bothering with the consequences of state surrender to hoodlums, or is the continued politicization of security challenges not going to make all of us ultimately
victims of the insurgents?

The fact that criminals seek to hold us by the jugular does not mean we should surrender and create an incentive for more crime. In today's Nigeria, it has become fashionable to treat the unlawful demands of bandits as worthy of consideration and to lampoon people who insist that outlaws should be crushed and not mollycoddled or availed the resources they can use to unleash further outrages.

Someone please turn on the AC. The heat is much.

Everyone with his own views and style. And here comes El-rufai with his own view and widely condemned by "dissenting " views.
Until one gets in that shoe, you might never really know where and how it hurts.

Nevertheless, I still believe El-rufai is one man with a strong heart. Typical of what real leaders should be.
RobbStark:


He is a man with a strong heart abi....meaning he won't negotiate to free the remaining students rather he will hold his position of not negotiating and see all of the students killed.
I'll be forced to share with you what happened this morning while on transit with my friend

I nearly killed him;

So my friend—a staunch anti-Buhari/APC — argued with me why the government would even consider negotiating with terrorists.

I asked if he had learnt of the death of some students and I repeated same thing El-rufai had said to Jonathan about employing all tactics to set hostage free.

He still argued.

So I saw a 911 truck , and since i was driving, I thought of maneuvering and ramming into it.

I could get another car, but what if I lose my legs?

However, we must learn to reason with people's views.
My friends argument is that, paying ransom is tantamount to arming them.
Even if the bandits set these ones free, they would have gotten more resources to hold another set of people hostage.

In all, we must agree that Leadership and decision making isn't as easy as we think and we can't please everyone

But what is happening in Nigeria


These people are in Lagos too, may we not be a victim...


The country and street are not smiling.

Hardship everywhere.

Common food for the common man is now luxury.

One paint of garri 1200, beans a derica 400, you can't see yam of less than 1k again.


I don't know about other states but I am speaking based on my location.

My younger brother was jazzed/kidnapped last week Thursday in Lagos. He was released because they saw money in his account which was withdrew via POS.

People, please stay awoke, Nigeria isn't smiling in all areas now cry
