Tinubu Declares War on Kidnappers, Vows to Treat Them as Terrorists!

In a resolute stance against the rising tide of kidnappings across the nation, President Bola Tinubu has issued a fiery condemnation, declaring that individuals involved in such heinous acts must be classified as terrorists.

Speaking at a Ramadan dinner with members of the federal judiciary led by Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, at the State House in Abuja, Tinubu minced no words in expressing his disgust at the actions of kidnappers.

“We must treat kidnappers as terrorists. They are cowardly. They have been degraded. They look for soft targets. They go to schools and kidnap children and cause disaffection,” declared the president with unwavering resolve. “We must treat them equally as terrorists in order to get rid of them, and I promise you we will get rid of them.”

Tinubu’s impassioned speech underscored the government’s unwavering commitment to stamping out banditry and ensuring the safety of all citizens, particularly children who have become targets of these cowardly criminals.

Furthermore, the president addressed the issue of judicial reforms, pledging to continue implementing necessary measures to enhance the welfare and working conditions of judicial officers.

Acknowledging the challenges faced by the judiciary, Tinubu emphasized the need for modernization and improvement in equipment and recordkeeping, promising to address these shortcomings.

Expressing gratitude to the judiciary for their dedicated service to the nation, Tinubu reiterated the importance of mutual support in bringing Nigeria to a brighter future.

In response, Chief Justice Ariwoola commended the president for his commitment to judicial reforms and improving the welfare of judicial officers, offering prayers for the success of his administration.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi, also expressed appreciation to the president for his decisive action in forwarding the executive bill aimed at addressing the stagnant state of judges’ salaries and emoluments.

As the nation braces itself against the scourge of kidnapping, Tinubu’s bold declaration serves as a rallying cry for unity and determination in the fight against terrorism in all its forms.
