Sympathises with Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned in very strong terms Wednesday’s blasts in Kaduna that killed over 85 persons, describing the attacks as dastardly and unfortunate.

In a statement issued on Thursday by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, the party mourned the dead victims of the blasts.

It also joined other well-meaning Nigerians in thanking God for saving the lives of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi whose convoys were affected in the attacks.

“We sincerely sympathise with Gen. Buhari. Our hearts go out to him and all those affected in these wicked attacks,” the PDP said.

Expressing shock at the ugly incident, the party reiterated its call for Nigerians to unite against acts of terrorism irrespective of ethnic, political and religious affiliations, stating that “it has become clear that anybody could be a target.”

It, however, cautioned opposition leaders to be careful with their utterances regarding the unfortunate incident, saying that Nigerians must unite for the nation to win the war against terror.

The party also charged security agencies to ensure a thorough investigation into the attacks as well as intensify their efforts in the fight against insurgency in the country.
