APC condemns Kano blast, says terrorism will never win

APC Chairman John Odigie Oyegun

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has condemned, in the strongest terms possible, Friday’s senseless attack on innocent worshippers at a mosque in Kano, saying terrorism will never prevail no matter how long it takes.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said the attack has again confirmed what it (APC) has always believed: That terrorism is an attack on our nationhood and the way we live.

“Every attack against innocent people, including women and children, or those who are performing or pursuing their commitment to their God or faith, is a cowardly and senseless victimization and exploitation of vulnerability.

“The fabric and character of our people, whether in Kano or anywhere else across the nation, are stronger than this attack on our collective humanity. Our resolve as a nation will always overcome evil and any assault on how we live and practice our respective faith.

“APC stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the people of Kano and all the affected families at this difficult time. We pray that God will grant repose to the soul of those who were killed in the blast, while also wishing all those who were injured in the attack a speedy recovery. We urge all citizens to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit of compassion and strength of character by providing succour and support to one another,” it said.

APC also commended the security agencies for their continued sacrifice in confronting the insurgency, despite the fact that they are working in very difficult circumstances, characterized by insufficient equipment and support that could serve as a great morale booster.

“We want you to know that your work and sacrifices secure our nation and, for that, you will never be forgotten. Together we will get through this,” the party told the security agencies.

It restated its resolve to work with the Federal Government, in a bipartisan manner, in all genuine efforts to fight terrorism, to better secure our nation and to provide support and succour for the long-suffering people of Nigeria.

  • George

    APC – LIAR MUHAMMADU has missed one line in that their statement, why not called GOODLUCK names again, what has changed.

    Pretenders

    • TRUTH MASTER

      The PDP and his supporters are masters of abuse. But see where it has landed them!

      • See who is talking pls grow up.

        • TRUTH MASTER

          I am grown already!

    • Gnwatch

      He won’t do that. It is people like you hired to talk rubbisg here that are giving the clueless Jonathan problem. Of what use is your is comment with regards to the issue here. Criminal struck and it is time to mourn and symphatise with the familes of the departed and all you have to say is to call somebody name. Who then is politicizing BH issue in Nigeria.

    • Night Crawler

      APC don’t abuse but criticise GEJ because he failed to do the needful. Innocent civilians are dying everyday and instead blame opposition party for his incompetence

      • George

        WHo are those innocent civilians. How could a muslims who chooses sharia over Nigeria constitution contents be innocent.

        I wish them all more death

  • Uzoma

    An APC finally standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the innocent victims of a senseless violence and their families; an APC finally commending the security agencies for their continued sacrifice; an APC willing to postpone the cashing-in on the political dividends of these unfortunate events: that’s the APC and opposition politics of our dreams as patriotic Nigerians. I fervently pray this is the beginning of a new era because we all win when we know when to bond together and when to walk our different ways.

    • TRUTH MASTER

      Here we go again. Anarchists at the gate. There is nothing the APC wrote here that it has never said before. They claim the APC never supports their government to tackle Boko Haram, which is a lie. Now, the APC has ”reiterated” its offer of bipartisan support and they are angry. This is why they continue to fall….and fall they will!

  • Gnwatch

    May the soul of the departed rest in perfect peace and may God expose the evil men behind the criminals.

    • Night Crawler

      Amen

  • Night Crawler

    God help save this country from anachy and doom. GEJ should do the needful and resign, he hasaid failed to do his primary duty which is to protect lives and property and it’s part of his plan so notherners won’t vote. His plan will fail

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      That’s not gonna happen !! GEJ is not responsible for the bombings,he is not a Muslim nor is he responsible for drafting the Koran and it’s Jihad content.
      George Bush did not resign after 9/11 and the Presidents of all MIddle-eastern countries where Islamic terrorism hold sway do not resign and even when they do it does not erase the contents of the Koran !

    • U are a goat.

    • Use ur brain.sori u don’t have one.

  • Smith Scott

    Because APC rule Kano they gave speech. When it was Adamawa nothing was said about it rather than attacking Army boss for allowing BH to take over his town. It only relevant to condemn if it is APC state.

    I seriously doubt that this press release came fro Lai Mohammed. So non-partisan, so nationalistic and so lack of blame-as-patriotism; in fact so unLaiMohammed to bear his signature.
