- Days after the abduction of over 300 students in Katsina, President Buhari has not visited the school, though he is currently in the state
- The reason behind the president's action, however, remains unknown as Governor Masari who recently visited him declined to comment on the issue
- The Katsina state governor, in a surprise twist, told the journalist who asked him the question to go and ask the president himself
Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina state has refused to comment on why President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to visit Kankara, days after the abduction of over 300 students from Government Science Secondary School in the town.
The schoolboys were kidnapped on Friday, December 11, the same day President Buhari travelled to Daura, his hometown in Katsina state.

However, days after the abduction, President Buhari has not visited the town though he is still in the state.
Thus, when Governor Masari who has visited Buhari in Daura appeared on a Channels TV programme on Wednesday, December 16, he was asked why the president was yet to visit Kankara.
The governor, however, declined comment and instead, asked the Channels TVpresenter to go and ask President Buhari the question. The governor told the presenter:
"You go and ask your President. I didn’t ask him that. You go and ask him."
When the presenter insisted Governor Masari should respond since he has visited and briefed the president on the abduction, the Katsina state governor still declined to comment.
He asked the presenter to ask the Channels TV correspondent who is on the entourage of the president.
Meanwhile, in another report, Governor Masari has said the kidnapped students are in a forest in Zamfara state.
The Katsina state governor said he got information that the students are in the state, adding that his government is negotiating with the kidnappers to ensure their safe release.
