President Goodluck Jonathan has just issued the statement below condemning today’s Kaduna bomb attack today.

 Read below, full statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.

“President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has condemned Sunday’s suicide bomb attack on a Catholic Church in Kaduna.

“The President who was extremely saddened by the explosion, described it as “barbaric, cruel and uncalled for.”

“President Jonathan noted that the apparent objective of the criminal and unpatriotic elements and forces behind the attack is to set back the progress the Administration has made in the fight against terrorism in the country. “It is obvious that these people do not mean well for Nigeria and its unity and development,” he said.

“The President however, expressed confidence that the war against terrorism would become more unrelenting as the nation would never give in to the forces of terror and retardation.  He added that the persistence of messengers of evil will not prevail over the will of the government and the people to secure peace and safety.

“Our efforts to deal with all acts of terror and violence would only be redoubled even as the security agencies continue to receive all the support they need from government to reverse this unfortunate and unacceptable trend that threatens the peace and stability of our nation,” President Jonathan said.

“The President commiserated with the Catholic Church, family and friends of the victims of the bombing, assuring them that government’s resolve to deal with the threat of terrorism remains strong.”
