According to the Governor, if his son is abducted, he would rather hope that he goes to heaven than pay a ransom for his freedom.
On Friday, April 9, the governor, who has consistently opposed negotiations with bandits, was asked if his administration had considered paying for the release of an abducted student from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in Kaduna.
In response to the query, the Governor stated that his government would not pay a ransom, but that they will consider other options to ensure their release.
“I mean it and I will say it again here. Even if my son is kidnapped, I will rather pray for him to make heaven instead because I won’t pay any ransom” He said.
