APC, Buhari Campaign Organisation condemn attack on Jonathan’s convoy

The Chairman, Bauchi State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress [APC], and the state’s Chapter of Buhari Campaign Organisation [BCO], have condemned last Wednesday’s attack on President Goodluck Jonathan’s convoy.

Mr. Nana and the State Co-ordinator of BCO, Danjuma Dabo, made the condemnation on Sunday in Bauchi while briefing journalists.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that President Jonathan’s convoy was attacked by unidentified thugs during his campaign rally in Bauchi.

The Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] blamed the APC for the attack, but the state Governor, Isa Yuguda, has now exonerated the APC.

The governor said the attack was masterminded by some leaders of the PDP in the state.

“We hereby condemn in strong terms any act of violence which took place and we are against any violence during any political event or procession,’’ Messrs Nana and Dabo said.

The two politicians sympathised with those who directly or indirectly suffered any form of loss and injury during the said fracas.

“We want to reiterate that APC will continue to promote peaceful politicking.

“We exhibited such practically during our `Bauchi Walk for Buhari’, staged by BCO recently, and we were commended by all security agencies in the state,” they said.
