PDP condemns Kaduna, Kano bombings

25 June 2014, 16:00

Kaduna - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the bombing at the School of Hygiene in Kano as well as attacks on some villages in Kaduna State.

The ruling party said it received the news with “deep sadness.”

“Indeed, we are deeply worried by the spate of mindless attacks which are aimed to cow the people, destablize the polity and destroy the future of the nation. While we condemn in very strong terms, these wicked and senseless attacks on our citizens, we invite Nigerians to note the pattern and timing which betray a trend tailored against the PDP and the Federal Government,” PDP stated.

The ruling party added that the attacks are part of the plot to paint the Federal Government as incompetent and the nation as unsafe.

“We are compelled to invite Nigerians to critically examine the timing and mode of the series of attacks since the emergence of the current administration and make deductions regarding whose interest they serve.”

The party nonetheless remained defiant in the face of attacks.

“As a party entrusted with the sacred mandate of leadership, the PDP will remain steadfast in our commitment to Nigerians and the Nigerian project.

The PDP sincerely commiserates with the families of the deceased even as we pray for speedy recovery for the wounded. Our hearts and prayers go to them all.”

It was reported on Monday that a bomber guised as a fresh student at the Kano institution was responsible for the explosion that killed eight people.
