Buhari Condemns Christmas Day Bombings
Former Head of State ,General Muhammadu has condemned in the strongest terms the series of bombings that took place in 4 states in Nigeria on the day Christmas is being celebrated across the world. Media reports have cited the bombing of churches in Suleja and Jos,SSS office in Yobe and another location in Adamawa state.Casualties have been recorded in these dastardly acts.
General Buhari commiserates with all those who have lost their loved ones in these heinous acts of terror and prays that the Almighty would grant them the fortitude to bear their irreparable losses.
He called on all people of goodwill to condemn these occurrences that have sent sorrows to many families in a festive season. "Bombing other human beings to death at any time is callous.It becomes much more reprehensible on a Christmas day and all lovers of peace must condemn this gruesome acts and demand that the perpetrators be fished out and brought to book" he said.
He is however worried about the seeming mute indifference of the Nigerian authorities to these unfortunate incidents. "How on earth would the Vatican and the British authorities speak before the Nigerian government on attacks within Nigeria that have led to the deaths of our citizens? This is clearly a failure of leadership at a time the government needs to assure the people of the capacity to guarantee the safety of lives and property" he added. He called on the Nigerian government to rise up to the challenge of security in our country and not to believe that it's just about voting almost a quarter of the budget to security. "You can devote the entire budget to security and there won't be any result if there is no competence in leadership to know what to do at the right time"
