The Presidency has stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government should be commended for tackling security challenges rocking the nation promptly.
This was stated on Monday by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, while speaking on Channels Television's Politics Today' programme.
He stated that the Buhari-led federal government would tell Nigerians if it pays any ransom to secure the release of the over 300 schoolgirls abducted by bandits in Jangebe in Zamfara State.
Femi Adesina stated that the federal government is willing to do anything to secure the release of all Nigerians in captivity "without compromising the sovereignty of the country".
"It is easy to say negotiations and dialogue should not be done but to the president, each situation is taken according to its peculiarities," he said.
"If ransom was paid, it (the government) will tell the country and if ransom was not paid, it will say so.
"If there was payment, it will be disclosed and if there was payment, it will not be my duty because I speak for the president. The president will not be the one to pay the ransom, the agencies that will pay the ransom have spokesmen who can confirm or deny whether ransoms were paid."
