El-Rufai’s wife who was the Guest of Honor at the event said that Nigerians must get back to their once-peaceful country and women have a great role to play in achieving that.

Mrs. El-Rufai who stressed that ransom should not be paid if she is kidnapped and, “we must sacrifice to bring this to an end. I am ready to die in the hands of kidnappers if it will bring peace to this country.

For as long as you continue to pay ransom, it is like you are adding kerosene to fire. you are giving bandits, kidnappers money for ammunition to continue to haunt you. We should not pay ransom. this is my personal opinion.

“I have said it before and I will say it again if I am kidnapped don’t pay any ransom. rather pray for me that if it is death, I go in a good way and if I am going to be released that I am not violated.

As long as we are giving them the money and they hurt people around, they will not change. Collectively as a country, we have to say no, we can not continue to give them our hard-earned money to buy weapons and drugs to kill and maim our children. If we don’t put a stop to this, they will destroy us all. They will even kidnap the person that takes the ransom to them.
