Terrorism will never prevail over Nigeria – Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC),  Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Kano and Jos.

This is contained in a statement made available to journalists in Lagos by the APC.

Mr. Buhari, in the statement, said that the two historic cities were known for their rich cultural and religious heritage.

“Once again, those who seek to influence our way of life, modify our faith and our most sacred core values, have struck, leaving in their wake lives brutally cut short, limbs badly broken and dreams forced to fade away.

“But these people, whose actions are not sanctioned by any religion and who subscribe to no known decent values, will not succeed.

“Our people are resilient and strong, and our nation is capable, based on our rich human and material resources, of successfully tackling these nihilists.

“No religion condoles the killings of such innocent people; hence we are sure these terrorists profess to none of the world’s great religions, much as they seek to mask their actions with the cloak of religion,’’ he said.

Mr. Buhari commiserated with the victims and their family members and prayed that Allah would grant repose to the souls of the departed and comfort those who lost loved ones.

“I urge all of us to demonstrate our time-tested compassion by providing support and succour to those affected one way or the other in their hour of need,’’ he said.

Mr. Buhari said that terror would be defeated, saying that all it required was the political will, uncommon courage and unrelenting determination.(NAN)

    But these statements were not coming before now and he actually refused to mediate between the Govt and the terrorists in the first place insisting that he must be made president first. For all he cares it is his presidency or nothing

    • tundemash

      Even when he never got involved, you amnesty camp idi0ts got fed with lies he was sponsoring Boko Haram and yet you want him to mediate ….. mediate ko, supervise ni ? Can you copy and paste here where GMB insisted he has to be made President or did you not ask for proof of that when you were being fed with that lies at your amnesty camp village ?

      Too early in the morning to be drunk on Sapele water. While the people’s General said “terror would be defeated, saying that all it required was the political will, uncommon courage and unrelenting determination”, your Dumbo is expressing frustration, giving boko haram sense of victory. and as usual no clear statement on the way forward.

      Over two months now since Dumbo claimed he has an “oluwole” ceasefire with his Boko boys and his right hand man Modu Sherrif and that the abducted girls will be home in a few days and yet NOTHING has happened as usual !

        I never use any of such words to warrant the language you are using. Let me leave it at that as my intention of writing on this page is to express my views without insults. However between Buhari and Jonathan who is more intelligent will be clear during the presidential debates. Remember GEJ had always insisted he does not know who to negotiate with concerning BH. Public Opinion from the North was that he must negotiate. He did that and it was frustrated by people claiming that the timing was wrong .One last question when did Modu Sherrif become a BH sponsor? When he was in ANPP,APC,or PDP?

        • Shehu Garba

          My brother, I advise you to ignore that fellow. He can’t give what he doesn’t have. His heart is full of indecency, immorality and everything uncivil.
          We accuse the PDP Of corruption. The sort of foul and abusive comments I read from several APC fans on this site makes me wonder how they will perform if also they find themselves in positions of authority.
          Take note of these names; TundeMESS, Wahala, Kay, Kay soyemi, glo, screw-em, etc etc. They are all lowlifes. Never ever be surprised at their insults and abuses. They had a very poor upbringing.
          Stay Blessed.

          “However between Buhari and Jonathan who is more intelligent will be clear during the presidential debates.”

          —- That is if you make sure he doesn’t dodge the debate this time around. Last time he dodged and debated Dbanj instead !

          “Remember GEJ had always insisted he does not know who to negotiate with concerning BH. Public Opinion from the North was that he must negotiate. He did that and it was frustrated by people claiming that the timing was wrong .”

          —– Hear yourself. One moment, GEJ said he doesn’t know who to negotiate with and then he negotiated. So he suddenly knew who to negotiate with ? And who is that more powerful person who frustrated the C-in-C ? A name please.

          “One last question when did Modu Sherrif become a BH sponsor? When he was in ANPP,APC,or PDP?”

          —– What a silly question! Does it matter which party a criminal belongs to before the C-in-C acts ? Is Dumbo afraid of anyone on ANPP, APC or PDP ? No wonder Femi Fani-Kayode was suddenly acquitted of corruption charges once he crossed over to PDP.

          “I never use any of such words to warrant the language you are using.”

          If you can accuse another of associating with terrorists based on hearsay, then be ready to take anything thrown at you too !
          If you don’t like the heat, please leave the kitchen as I do not know what exact words you have issues with.

          I would not dignify your amnesty “brother”, Shehu Garba, with a response. A coward, hiding behind a fake name, to post ethnic/religious divisive statements is not worth my time !

  • kammykazee

    ‘Presidential’ press release from the people’s General, at a time Jonathan is admitting frustration, giving boko haram sense of triumph.

  • ceweeco projects

    Some northerners synchronized by very few southerners are very dishonest people who seem to think that Nigeria belongs to them and their Fulani ilk, Cold and wicked people who never had any qualms in ordering the murder of innocent
    people. It is not true and can never be true that the North has more population than the South. Land mass does not automatically translate to big population. Canada has more land than the USA. But the USA is ten times more populated than Canada. It is a lie that has been put in place since the 1950s by the colonial masters who believe that imposing the malleable minority Fulani on the majority would be a way to guarantee the British unfettered access to Nigeria’s wealth.
    Granted that Olusegun Obasanjo as a Southerner has been a tool in the hands of the Hausa/Fulani oligarchy all his life to be able to attain the apex of politics that he has attained, what about Jonathan who has good luck on his side to be where he is today and avail himself the opportunity to loosen the chain of bondage for his people? Why won’t he correct some of these historical lie dressed in the garb of “truth” and accepted unquestioningly by the contemporary political leaders of other regions? When empirical facts could not support any claim, such claim ought to be discarded and replaced by a more verifiable ones.
