Zamfara state government says its working very hard to rescue all the remaining students of the Federal University Gusau (FUG) abducted in September.
This was disclosed by Zamfara state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Malam Wadatau Madawaki while making opening remarks during the election of the Federated Association for Zamfara State Students (FAZAMSS) in Gusau, today (Saturday).
The Commissioner who was reacting to the 7-day ultimatum recently issued by the terrorists on the abducted students, says efforts are being made to ensure these students have been reunited with their families.
“Government is making efforts to ensure that these students come back to their families, Insha Allah.
“We are working very hard. But you know, you don’t push someone to the wall and expect that person to act the way you want him to act. The governor (Dauda Lawal) has already said it in many fora that he is not going to be forced into any unnecessary cooperation with the bandits.
“The government is working behind the scenes. We don’t talk in the media that this is what is happening. But work is going on and efforts are being made to ensure that these students are brought back to their families safely, Insha Allah,” the commissioner assured.
