Killexams : State schools chief gets Trump endorsement

Former president Donald Trump on Friday endorsed Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Brian Schroeder in his bid for election to the post.

Gov. Mark Gordon appointed Schroeder to the position in January after former superintendent Jillian Balow left to take a similar job in Virginia. Now he's running for election to the post against four other candidates — three Republicans and one Democrat.

Another former Republican candidate, Thomas Kelly, dropped out of the race on Monday to cast his vote for Schroeder. 

“Brian is the only other candidate who really seems to get the federal government attempts to influence Wyoming through monetary policy, and he’s more likely to win than I am,” Kelly told the Star-Tribune on Tuesday. “It didn’t make any sense for me to stay in for my own personal ego.”

Republican candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction Thomas Kelly has dropped out of the race to cast his vote for incumbent Brian Schroeder. 

Schroeder is the former head of Veritas Academy, a private Christian school in Cody, and has experience as a family and youth coordinator and as a teacher and administrator in private schools in California, Wisconsin, Michigan and Wyoming.

He's deeply conservative; he's called for Wyoming to enact a law similar to Florida's Parental Rights in Education Act, which, among other things, "prohibits classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in certain grade levels." He advocates for more parental control in public schools. He opposes the teaching of critical race theory (it isn't currently taught in Wyoming public schools). 

In addition to Trump, Schroeder has also received endorsements from Gun Owners of America and Montana State Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen. 

"Brian Schroeder asked for Superintendent Arntzen’s endorsement and in their discussion, he showed commitment to partnering on her priorities as she works to bring the focus in education back to the basics," a spokesperson for Arntzen said in a Wednesday email to the Star-Tribune. 

Community members got to hear from GOP candidates for the Wyoming superintendent of public instruction position during an election forum in Casper. Here are the candidates' take on some issues. 

Schroeder reached out to Arntzen and the state superintendents of North Dakota, South Dakota, Florida and Texas in regards to a May USDA Food and Nutrition Service nondiscrimination policy update to include protections against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.  

The update means any organization that gets money from the Food and Nutrition Service, which includes public schools in Wyoming, has to “investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation” and “update their non-discrimination policies and signage to include prohibitions against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation,” the USDA statement says.

The update is meant to provide LGBTQ+ individuals an avenue to file a complaint if they experience discrimination by or within a Food Nutrition Service program, a USDA spokesperson previously told the Star-Tribune.

Wyoming's schools leader suggested a federal nondiscrimination update on gender and sexual orientation would impact pronouns and locker rooms, when the guidance he received behind-the-scenes indicated otherwise.

Schroeder denounced the update in several statements and called for Wyoming to reject federal funds for nutrition programs.

“We categorically reject gender ideology and will not bow to the coercive will of a bully government," he said in one of his statements. 

Some teachers and organizations, including Wyoming Equality, the Wyoming Education Association and ACLU of Wyoming, pushed back on Schroeder's statements. 

“Schools have a moral and legal duty to follow the law and to provide a safe learning environment for all students, and the penalties for discriminating against a student because they are transgender are no different than the penalties for any other kind of sex discrimination,” ACLU of Wyoming Campaigns Director Libby Skarin said in a June statement.

The other Republican candidates in the superintendent race are Megan Degenfelder, formerly chief policy officer at the education department and currently the government and regulatory affairs manager for Morningstar Partners Oil & Gas, Casper-based substitute teacher and cosmetologist Jennifer Zerba and underground trona miner Robert White.

Degenfelder, a sixth generation Wyomingite, has been endorsed by former state superintendent Judy Catchpole. She wants to "empower parents as the number one voice in their children’s education," increase direct classroom spending, Strengthen K-3 literacy and "fight back against anti-American curriculum and policies."  

A former top official at the Wyoming Department of Education announced Thursday she will run for superintendent of public instruction.

Zerba said that parents and teachers should work together to find alternatives if a parent disagrees with what their child is being taught.  She's a proponent of upholding and bringing more attention to the educational opportunities that the state already has to offer and increasing financial transparency in schools. 

White is the only candidate without a background in education, an attribute he previously said gives him more ability to think outside of the box. He was formerly an amphibious assault vehicle crew chief and a corporal in the Marine Corps. His top priority is addressing school safety. 

In addition to Schroeder, Trump has also endorsed another Wyoming candidate, land attorney Harriet Hageman, who is running against Rep. Liz Cheney for Wyoming's lone House seat. 

The primary elections end on Aug. 16. After that, the winning Republican superintendent candidate will face off in the general elections against Democrat candidate Sergio Maldonado, a member of the Northern Arapaho tribe who has been a teacher, college administrator and school board trustee in Arizona and Wyoming. He has also served on the National Advisory Council on Indian Education under former President George H.W. Bush and as the liaison with the Northern Arapaho Tribe under former Gov. Matt Mead. Maldonado has received the endorsement of the Wyoming Education Association.

Killexams : Making the grade

Parents in the Lawrence area who want their high school-age children to receive a biblically based, classical Christian education now have an alternative to either home schooling or sending them to schools in Topeka or the Kansas City area.

That’s because — after 25 years of offering such an education to students in kindergarten through ninth grade — Veritas Christian School, 256 N. Michigan, is expanding to include 10th and 11th grades this fall, as well as 12th grade in the fall of 2004.

It’s welcome news to families like Mike and Melanie Bartlow, who live a few miles south of Lawrence and have three children enrolled at Veritas. Their oldest child, Andrew, 16, will be a 10th grader when school starts Aug. 27 for students in the seventh through 11th grades.

Andrew, like his sisters, Elizabeth, 14, and Abigail, 9, were home schooled before their parents enrolled them at Veritas two years ago — which was also when their mother joined the school’s faculty as a sixth-grade teacher.

“The timing (of the added grades at Veritas) has been perfect for my son,” Melanie Bartlow says. “We would have had to sit down and talk about what our other options were.”

Now the Bartlows, firm believers in the value of a biblically based, Christian education, don’t have to. Andrew will spend his high school years at Veritas, followed by his sisters.

“I just think all academia needs to come under the authorship of God and center around Christ,” Andrew’s mother says. “I think Veritas is an excellent alternative in town.”

So do a lot of other families.

When school starts, Veritas anticipates an enrollment of 135 students from kindergarten through 11th grade. That’s up from 117 students last year, and less than 60 three years ago.

JO LI, LEFT, AND DOUG BENNETT, chairman of Veritas Christian's school board, work to cut away sheet rock while remodeling for a new senior high student entrance and commons area at Veritas Christian, 256 N. Michigan. Li's daughter Danielle will be in sixth grade at Veritas. Bennett's three children, Madison, Nick and Kirsten, also attend Veritas.

In addition to adding three more grades, Veritas is expanding its extracurricular sports program, fielding more junior varsity and varsity teams for boys and girls.

What does the future hold for the school? Still more growth, say its leaders and board members.

“We have a vision,” says Doug Bennett, chairman of the school board the past five years. “We’ve looked at the demographics, and we feel that over the next 10 years, we’d like to grow to 350 to 400 students.”

Putting on a fresh face

Evidence of that vision is everywhere at the school’s 3 1/2-acre campus.

The community is invited to attend an open house from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Veritas Christian School, 256 N. Michigan.Guests will have the opportunity to meet the school’s administrator, teachers, staff and board members, view improvements to the facility and learn about the school’s classical, Christian approach to education.The nondenominational school has served students from kindergarten through ninth grade for the past 25 years. This fall, it will add 10th and 11th grades, and in the fall of 2004, 12th grade will be added.For more information about Veritas or the open house, call 749-0083.

Remodeling is under way throughout the roughly 13,000-square-foot main building, as volunteers from the Veritas family paint, frame in new walls and make way for lockers for incoming high school students.

Just south of the school’s parking lot, the ground is being cleared and readied to accommodate three double-wide modular structures that will house six classrooms to serve junior high and high school grades.

East of the main building, a 1,700-square-foot modular classroom, used to house the school’s fine arts program, is being upgraded to serve students in band and choir.

The next project on the agenda is to Strengthen the main building’s second-story classrooms that are used by elementary school students.

Volunteers are working to complete as much of the cosmetic aspects of the remodeling in time for the school’s community open house Sunday.

VERITAS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL SECOND-GRADE TEACHER Aylo Lippe rolls on fresh paint to classroom walls.

Veritas is in the former home of Mustard Seed Christian Fellowship, which left the building in 1990 and moved to its present location at 700 Wakarusa Drive. An anonymous member of that congregation purchased the old site and donated it to Veritas.

The Christian school itself used to be located in the Reformed Presbyterian Church, which stood at the northeast corner of Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive. That’s now the site of the Douglas County Citizens Committee on Alcoholism.

Accelerated learning

Leaders and board members credit the school’s growth to its credentials, its classical, biblically based curriculum and a proven track record of academic success.

Veritas — which is nondenominational and draws students from about 30 area churches — belongs to the Association of Christian Schools International and the Association of Classical Christian Schools.

It is in candidate status for accreditation by the former organization, a process intended to put it on equal footing with Lawrence public schools.

In 1998, Veritas adopted a curriculum based upon a classical method of instruction once common in many schools around the country. It’s designed to not only teach students specific subject matter, but also to train them in how to think and learn.

The school uses a three-phase approach to education. Linked to the intellectual development of children, the curriculum consists of the grammar, logic and rhetoric aspects of every academic subject.

The classical approach seems to be working at Veritas.

Each year, its students take the Stanford Achievement Test, and the school’s student test results reflect that they are 3.48 grade levels above the national average. Its junior high students ranked in the 91st percentile. (This information is drawn from the school’s promotional literature and is based upon tests given in April 2001.)

Furthermore, Bennett says, the school has had several of its students go on to become valedictorians or salutatorians at Lawrence high schools.

Parents like Jim Jarrow, a Lawrence resident and former Veritas board member, are pleased that enrollment is on the rise and high school grades are being added.

He and his wife, Tamara, have two children enrolled at Veritas: Franchesca, 14, a ninth-grader; and Nicole, 11, a sixth-grader.

“I think parents are looking for places where children are learning not just the ABCs, but being loved and nurtured in a Christ-centered environment,” Jarrow said. “Children respond to the love from the teachers. I think when that environment is present, it accelerates the learning.”

Killexams : Private school forecast optimistic

Using mirrors, Bishop Seabury Academy sophomores Pasang Tamang, left, and Angela Thomas work on drawing self-portraits in the style of Frida Kahlo in their advanced art class.

Bishop Seabury Academy seniors Steven Peng, left, and Jefferson Wagner, right, inspect a laptop computer circuit board in class.

Bishop Seabury Academy teacher Dave Brunfeldt helps Seabury junior Jasmine Tse wire a microphone in an electronics class project. At far right is senior Joonghee Lee.

While the sagging economy is raising worries and lowering corporate profits, it doesn’t seem to be affecting enrollment at private schools in Lawrence.

Don Schawang, head of school at Bishop Seabury Academy says enrollment is climbing at the academy, where 113 students are enrolled in grades seven through 12 this year.

“We’re growing across the board,” says Schawang, who expects the number of students at Bishop Seabury to climb to 120 in the fall, including transferring students from other schools and incoming seventh-graders. “We see no effect on our enrollment.”

Bishop Seabury is a college preparatory school that has been open for 12 years and in 2003 moved to its current location at 4120 Clinton Parkway. Tuition for the 2008-09 academic year is $9,650, and Schawang says financial assistance is offered to more than 25 percent of parents.

About 10 percent of the school’s operating budget is committed to scholarships that provide tuition assistance, he says.

While the global financial concerns are a reality, Schawang says, “Education is very important to people, and that’s the last thing they will consider skimping on.”

Across town at Veritas Christian School, administrators also expect enrollment to hold steady for the upcoming school year.

“We’re not hearing of any mass exodus,” says Jeff Barclay, who stepped down as the school’s administrator two weeks ago. says. “Obviously it’s difficult not to talk about it. But I’m not hearing of anybody pulling out because of money.”

The school, 256 N. Mich., has 140 students in kindergarten through 12th grade and offers a part-time class option for about a dozen home-school students. Monthly tuition rates for 12-month payment plans at Veritas range from $255 for half-day kindergarten to $500 for high school, and families get a percentage discount for each additional child enrolled.

Veritas, a private Christian school that isn’t affiliated with a particular church or denomination, also offers tuition assistance to some students, Barclay says.

“We take 6 percent of our total tuition dollars and put that in a financial aid pool,” he says. School officials also solicit contributions for a financial aid fund.

While Barclay doesn’t expect Veritas to offer additional financial assistance because of economic concerns, he says school leaders will be “actively soliciting” for the financial aid fund and have hired a development director to boost fundraising efforts.

He says the school, which originated as Douglas County Christian School 27 years ago and became Veritas in 2004, is on solid financial footing thanks to its cash reserve and building fund.

Barclay also serves as director for the school choice movement in Kansas, but he doesn’t expect the group’s push for tax credits for parents of private school students to gain much traction this year in the Legislature due to the poor state budget situation.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, Wednesday commissioned three Ecological Fund Office (EFO) projects.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Micheal Kwanashie, thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the intervention project in the University.

Kwanashie added that the project had brought relief to the community and provided a more conducive atmosphere for learning.

He, however, appealed to the Federal Government to ensure the completion of the entire scope of the works covering more stretches of degraded land within the university.

He said the school was open to all Nigerians, regardless of their faith or state, and that school fees were affordable, to ensure that the poorest of the poor in the society attained university Education.

The Chairman of Bwari Area Council, Dr Musa Dikko, stated that the completion and handover of the project showed that the Federal Government was performing.

Present at the occasion were the Permanent Secretaries in charge of the Cabinet Affairs Office, Mrs Georgina Ehuria, Special Services Office, Mr Alo Williams, General Services Office, Olusegun Adekunle, and Ecological Fund Office, Dr Habiba Lawal.(NAN)

Killexams : Nigeria: Tension Grips Abuja, Environs Over Rising Insecurity

The wind of insecurity blowing across the country, especially in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, gathered pace yesterday, sending panic through the whole of Abuja and its environs.

This led to the shutting down of Veritas University, as the terrorists, who had written the Abuja Campus of the Nigerian Law School. also demanded ransom on 500 students, a director-general and 15 lecturers of the institution, ahead of the attack.

There are claims and counter-claims that persons suspected to be terrorists/bandits, on Tuesday night, carried out sporadic shootings at the Minister's Hill area and the Dantata Bridge along Airport Road, Abuja.

In neighbouring Nasarawa State, Governor Abdullahi Sule also ordered immediate closure of schools to avert students being attacked.

African Democratic Congress, ADC, Presidential Candidate, Mr. Dumebi Kachikwu, who unveiled Mr Ahmed Buhari as his running mate, yesterday, echoed opposition senators'call on President Muhammadu Buhari to either resign or be impeached in six weeks, if he failed to address the insecurity in the country, leading to the uproar on the floor of the Senate chamber yesterday.

This is even jas APC Justice and Unity Forum, APC JUF, the ruling party's support group, demanded immediate sack of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno, retd.

Reacting to terrorists and bandits' reported plans to attack Abuja, Zamfara, Kano and Lagos and two other states, the Leader of the Pan-Yoruba Socio-political Organisation, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, lamented that the Federal Government has failed in securing Nigerians, adding that Nigeria needs foreign assistance to tackle its worsening insecurity situation.\

Worried senators, yesterday, gave President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks to resolve escalating security breaches or face impeachment proceedings.

The Federal Government, however, assured Nigerians that it is concerned and taking measures to address the issue. It dismissed as propaganda and laughable the latest threat of the terrorists to kidnap President Buhari, a governor and federal lawmakers.

Veritas University shuts down

The abrupt closure of the Roman Catholic owned Veritas University, located in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, followed security reports indicating that terrorists could attack and abduct students of the school after foiled attempt at the Nigerian Law School, sited some few kilometres apart.

New academic session which was hitherto slated to commence in September, has been put on hold and the 100-level students examination billed to begin this week, was suspended indefinitely. The school said the examination would be "conducted at a date to be announced."

Although, Veritas University, in a statement, Wednesday, said it had concluded academic activities hence the closure, Vanguard gathered the development is not unconnected with security threats received by the school and security agencies.

The Public Relations Officer of Veritas University, Evelyn Obekpa, in a terse statement, yesterday, said: "The Management of Veritas University wishes to notify the general public that the university has successfully completed the 2021/2022 academic session.

"However, due to the current security tension and the directives of the Minister of the FCT for the closure of schools in Abuja, examinations for our 100 level students shall be conducted at a date to be announced later."

Students desert Law school

Students of the Nigerian Law School, Bwari, Abuja have deserted the institution following a threat of an attack by terrorists who are demanding an advanced payment of ransom.

Credible sources confirmed to Vanguard on Wednesday that the terrorists have sent messages to the management of the institution demanding ransom to cover 500 students, the director-general and 15 lecturers of the institution.

The threat is coming barely one week after gunmen ambushed and killed officers and soldiers of the Presidential Brigade of Guards along the Kubwa-Bwari road.

Vanguard gathered that after the threat message, the management alongside the operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, called a meeting with the students and asked them to be security conscious.

According to a source, "information came about two weeks ago that Boko Haram terrorists have demanded that ransom should be paid in advance for 500 students, the D-G and 15 lecturers. After the message many students were frightened.

"The management held an emergency meeting during the Sallah holiday with three persons from the DSS, who addressed the students. They gave the students security tips and told them that security is a general business.

"They also told the students how vulnerable Bwari is as it has boundaries with Niger and Kaduna states which are the theatre of the crisis.

"They told the students to be security conscious and report to the management any unusual or suspicious movement and wear their Identity Cards."

The source further said: "As a result of the threat, on July 25, many students left the campus because of fear. Some left on the 26th and even advised their colleagues to leave. "Some students that have relatives within Abuja have gone to stay with them, while those that don't have anywhere to go are still in the school.

"The students are even pleading with the management to relocate them to the Port Harcourt campus but the management has not said anything about it."

It was gathered that while some of the students have deserted the campus, some others are still receiving lectures as exams are expected to start about 25th August.

Senators provide Buhari 6 weeks to address problem or face impeachment

Disturbed by the continued insecurity challenges in the country with kidnapping, massive killing and wanton destruction of property across the country, Senators have threatened to begin impeachment proceedings against President Buhari. They gave him a six-week ultimatum to nip the crisis in the bud or face impeachment.

Opposition senators across party lines, who are not happy with the situation, protested against what they described as endless killings in Nigeria, angrily stormed out of plenary yesterday, chanting: "We are tired, Nigerians are being killed every day, Buhari must go and the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan should follow as far as worsening security situation in Nigeria is not stopped."

The Senators are of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, and the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP.

Trouble reared its head when the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT), who earlier came up through a motion of impeachment of President Buhari following his failure to solve the security problems in the country, was stopped by President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan.

Aduda raised a point of order for the Senate to deliberate on issues raised at the closed-door session which lasted for two hours.

Lawan had after the closed-door session announced that issues relating to smooth running of the Senate and unity in Nigeria were deliberated upon but instructed the leader of the Senate to proceed with items listed on the Order Paper.

Not happy with the development, the Senate Minority leader raised a point of order, calling for deliberation on issues discussed at the closed-door session, saying, "Mr. President, I raised this point of order to bring to the front burner, issues deliberated upon at the closed door session.

"Resolution made by all Senators at the closed door session which lasted for two hours, was to further deliberate on it in plenary and arrive at resolution to provide President Buhari ultimatum on urgent basis to stop the worsening security situation or face impeachment."

In trying to douse down tension as opposition Senators raised their voices, Lawan quickly interrupted him by saying that his point of order fell flat because Aduda didn't discuss it with him and thereafter instructed the leader of the Senate to proceed with items on the order paper.

Opposition senators storm out of plenary

Following the action of Lawan, Senator Aduda led other opposition senators to storm out of the Chamber at 1.54pm chamber chanting "All we are saying, Buhari must go, Nigeria must survive, Ahmad Lawan should follow", while the Senate was still in session and immediately rushed to the Press Centre to brief journalists on their plans.

The protesting Senators including Adamu Bulkachuwa (APC, Bauchi North); Adamu Aliero (Kebbi); former Senate Majority Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi (Kebbi North); Francis Alimikhena (PDP, Edo North); Enyinnaya Abaribe (APGA, Abia South), Ibrahim Shekarau (NNPP, Kano Central); and Francis Onyewuchi (Imo East), went to Hearing Room One for a closed-door meeting.

Speaking on behalf of the Senators, the Minority Leader, Philip Tanimu Aduda who noted that their anger was as a result of the refusal of the Senate President to follow resolutions taken by senators across party lines at the closed door session, said: "We went through a closed-door session to discuss issues as they relate to security in this country especially the happenings in Abuja and all over the country.

"We agree that the primary responsibility of government is the protection of lives and property of citizens and for us the minority caucus in the Senate we took into cognisance the fact the Senate had at various levels, and times, convened various security meetings, issues were discussed and we did recommend to government various steps and measures aimed at curbing these issues of insecurity.

"We realise that even Abuja that we are in is no longer safe. At the closed session we agreed that we will provide the president an ultimatum, which if he did not comply with we move immediately to provide an impeachment notice.

"This is what we agreed at the closed door session. So when we came out of the closed door session, we expected that the Senate President will brief the public on the issue that happened. However that did not happen. So we have come here in protest to brief you and to let you know that we are with Nigerians in this struggle.

"And that we are thinking that nowhere is safe in Nigeria and as such, we have walked out of the chamber in protest that the security situation is deteriorating and that urgent steps need to be taken to ensure that these issues are curbed immediately."

On how soon will they formalise their impeachment threat, Aduda said: "We have given a six-week notice within which this security issue should be resolved and all our resolutions should also be implemented. We had passed so many resolutions and we have given all the support, enablement, appropriation that they need."

In his closing remarks before adjournment, the Senate President, who noted that all senators are thinking and concerned about the security situation in the country, said that an emergency session may be held during the long recess, if the need arises.

Anxiety over shoot-out at Minister's Hill, Dantata Bridge, Abuja

Following allegations making the rounds in Abuja that persons suspected to be terrorists/bandits on Tuesday night carried out sporadic shootings at the Minister's Hill Area and the Dantata Bridge along Airport Road, Abuja, the Police in Abuja has said no single shot was fired.

Commenting on the development, Spokesperson of the FCT Police Command said: "The attention of the FCT Police Command has been drawn to a series of erroneous write-ups and publications making the rounds, especially on the social media spaces, suggesting that there was heavy gunfire simultaneously around Dantata Bridge in Lugbe and Minister's hills in Maitama, yesterday 26th July 2022 at about 19:38Hrs.

"Following the receipt of the news, the Command's Intelligence and Tactical asset drifted to the scene where the news was found false.

"Having maintained monitoring and surveillance of the area all night, and with the intelligence at the disposal of the Command, it is important to categorically state that the news is on every scale unfounded and should be disregarded.

"Members of the public are therefore enjoined to eschew the generation and promulgation of fake/ unverified news and go about their lawful business without the fear of harassment or molestation of any kind from any quarters.

"Meanwhile, the FCT Commissioner of Police CP Babaji Sunday while reassuring residents of an unalloyed commitment to the safety of all and sundry in the Territory called for calm.

He noted that an investigation has commenced into the sources of this and many other maliciously crafted write-ups, targeted at promoting panic and apprehension in the Territory.

He urged residents to only believe information released from official stables.

While the Police continue its quest on bringing crime and criminality to the barest minimum in the Territory, Residents are urged to remain vigilant, and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883, while the Public Complaint Bureau (PCB) desk, could be reached on: 0902 222 2352."

Terrorist threat against Buhari laughable -- FG

Meanwhile, the Federal Government, yesterday, described the latest threat issued by the Abuja-Kaduna train terrorists to go after President Buhari and Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State as laughable propaganda.

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated this while briefing State House correspondents at the end of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting, presided over by President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Recall that in the latest viral video released by the abductors of the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers, they had boasted that they would come after President Buhari and Governor el-Rufai.

Reacting to the claims and senators' six-week ultimatum to Buhari during the question and answer session of the briefing, Mohammed said: "Most of the questions you asked have to do with the security situation. I want to assure you that the President is aware of all these and as a matter of fact, I think tomorrow, there's going to be another Security Council meeting.

"So, it's not a matter the President is taking lightly and like I'll always, say some of the measures we're going to take are not measures that you can discuss openly here, but we're as concerned as you are, we're not going to abandon our responsibility.

"As to those who have issued threats to Mr. President, I think it's more of propaganda than anything. It's laughable.

"Resolution passed by senators, as rightly said, it was passed when we were deliberating, but we thank them for their patriotism and concern. We are working round the clock, 24 hours, to ensure that the situation is brought under control.

"I want to reassure you that the government is up to the task of ensuring security. Security challenges will come anywhere in the world, the important thing is the fact that you do not lose focus and you continue to work assiduously to overcome it. I want to assure you we are going to overcome."

Senators who threatened to impeach Buhari're are minority of minorities -- Presidency

However, Presidential Spokesperson, Mr. Femi Adesina, has said that senators who threatened to impeach President Buhari over rising insecurity are "the minority of minorities."

Adesina, who spoke during an interview on Channels Television, yesterday, said the senators are wasting the country's time.

His words: "The truth is that in this kind of scenario, minority will always have its say while the majority will have its way. You know the configuration of the National Assembly. Those who spoke today are the minority of minorities. "They would have their say as it is needful in a democracy, but it won't go beyond that. I think it was just bravado and very sadly, security is not something you subject to bravado.

"You don't begin to issue flippant ultimatums in something that is a matter of life and death. They know in their heart of hearts that they cannot achieve what they are saying. They are just wasting the country's time, wasting the time of the upper chamber of the National Assembly; they know that they cannot achieve it."

Asked if Buhari has reacted to the latest reports of gunshots in Abuja, the presidential spokesperson said he is not aware of any gunshots in the country's capital... . What happened in Bwari is in public domain. Everybody knows that to say there were gunshots in town, and I'm not privy to that unless you want to substantiate it.

"Now, the question is - are those minority lawmakers responding now because the thing is coming near to Abuja, their comfort zone? Is that why they are playing to the gallery? Well, they are Nigerians and they have the right to talk about what is happening in the country."

Resign if you can't secure Nigerians, Kachikwu tells Buhari

However, as insecurity envelops Nigeria, ADC Presidential Candidate, Mr. Dumebi Kachikwu, has asked President Buhari to stand down if he can no longer guaranty the safety of Nigerians.

Similarly, Kachikwu told Buhari that it is unacceptable for Nigerians to be living in fear, poverty and hopelessness under his leadership while he appears to be helpless in dealing with rising insecurity in the land.

Kachikwu, who spoke while unveiling his running mate, Ahmed Buhari, in Abuja, yesterday, accused the Buhari administration of running out of ideas and the political will to tackle the menace of insecurity in Nigeria, which has emboldened terrorists and bandits to attack Nigerians without any concomitant response from the military.

The ADC candidate also accused the All Progressives Congress, APC administration of destroying the Nigerian economy, which it inherited from former President Goodluck Jonathan at time when the Dollar was exchanged for N190 as against today's exchange rate of over N700.

Kachikwu said: "Buhari has squandered the goodwill of Nigerians and should resign from office if he can no longer guaranty the safety and wellbeing of Nigerians, who elected him with high hopes and aspirations in 2015 and re-elected him in 2019.

"But Buhari has allowed terrorists and bandits to destroy the country and turn innocent Nigerians into internally displaced persons across the country, including those in his state of Katsina. He inherited billions of Naira for security but cannot do anything to secure the people of Nigeria.

Speaking at the brief ceremony, Ahmed Buhari said: "We will do our best to stamp out terrorism and banditry from Nigerian from day one of our administration and we will do all that is needed to provide hope and confidence to all Nigerians by providing them with jobs and opportunities to actualize their dreams."

Gov Sule orders closure of schools in Nasarawa

Worried by the high wave of insecurity in Nasarawa, the State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, Wednesday ordered immediate closure of both public and private schools, as a step to safeguard the lives of students across the 13 local councils of the state.

According to Governor Sule, the government of Nasarawa is already in possession of reports of security threats in communities within states, bordering the FCT.

The decision formed part of the resolution reached at an expanded state executive council meeting held at the Government House.

Briefing journalists shortly after the council meeting, state Commissioner for Education, Hajiya Fatu Jimaita Sabo, said that having considered and reviewed the current situation in the country, especially the security threats in the FCT, the state government decided to close both public and private schools in the state with immediate effect.

Hajiya Sabo said this has become necessary considering the proximity of the state to the FCT, as well as the resolve of the government to ensure that schools in Nasarawa State operate within a safe environment.

She however explained that the directives excludes exit classes that are already writing their final examinations, especially in secondary schools adding that the ministry of education will in due course, issue a circular to that effect.

The education commissioner then appealed to principals and heads of respective schools, to ensure that schools are closed in an orderly manner, especially where there is no threat to any life or property presently in Nasarawa State.

Nigerians helpless, need foreign assistance -- Ayo Adebanjo

Also, Afenifere Leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, yesterday, said Nigeria needs foreign assistance to tackle its worsening insecurity, warning that Nigerians may resort to self-help.

Reacting to the planned attack by terrorists and bandits in Zamfara, Kano and Lagos states and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, the Afenifere leader lamented that the Federal Government has failed in securing Nigerians.

Adebanjo said: "My reaction to the alarm is that it has shown inability of the Buhari government to protect lives and properties. I have said it severally that this government should have left the place for an interim government to take over to tackle our security challenges and conduct a new election.

If we don't do that, the whole country will be finished before Buhari leaves office. I am not surprised but, unfortunately, Nigerians are incapable of defending themselves. The terrorists are now bold enough to threaten our Commander-in-Chief, they have attacked our military guard, attacked our defence academy, attacked strategic places and they have told us that their target is Aso Rock. They know our government is incapable of taking out the terrorists and protecting people. I have said that before that no one can come and help us except the international community comes to our aid."

Nigerians may resort to self-help

Asked whether Nigerians should resort to self-help, he said: "What else can we do if the government has failed to help us? We need foreigners to come and help us but in the meantime, we need to help ourselves. The authorities cannot help themselves and cannot help us. We have seen how the terrorists attacked the president's guard and they threatened to kidnap him and another governor; where does that leave us? Nigerians will have to resort to self-help when they can't help themselves. That is why we need foreign intervention if we must tackle insecurity."

APC support group demands immediate sack of NSA

Meanwhile as reactions continue to trail last sunday's terrorists' attack on troops of Presidential Guards Brigade in Bwari, near Abuja, killing eight soldiers, a support group of the ruling APC has demanded immediate sack of the National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno, retd.

The APC support group, operating under the body, APC Justice and Unity Forum, APC JUF, also urged President Buhari to immediately rejig the entire security architecture to pave way for fresh hands and ideas on handling the nation's worsening insecurity.

The forum, in a statement, Wednesday, by its National President, Dr Muhammadu Kabiru, said it was not only shameful and disgraceful but also embarrassing that the terrorists could have their way in launching deadly attack on troops of the elite Presidential Guards Brigade right in the nation's Federal Capital city few hours after boasting that it would soon abduct President Buhari and Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State.

It also drew attention to the continuous holding of passengers of the Abuja-Kaduna bound train without government's visible efforts at securing the release of the hostages almost four months after the incident, blaming the NSA for this.
