Jonathan condemns Pakistan school attack

President Goodluck Jonathan

On behalf of the Government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to the Government and People of Pakistan on the loss of over 140 lives in yesterday’s terrorist attack on Peshawar.

President Jonathan assures Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the people of Pakistan that Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them as they mourn the victims of yesterday’s heinous attack and strive to give succour to the injured and the bereaved.

The President wholly condemns the brutal, savage, senseless and totally unjustifiable killing of innocent students and staff during the attack.

He believes that the atrocity in Peshawar and recurring terrorist crimes across the world strongly reinforce the need for urgent action towards the formation of more effective regional, continental and global alliances against insurgency and violent extremism.

President Jonathan prays that God Almighty will comfort all the bereaved families of Peshawar and grant the injured speedy recovery.
