PDP condemns Kaduna bombings

24 July 2014, 13:35

Abuja - The ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the bombings in Kaduna State where more than 80 people were killed.

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) also described the attacks as dastardly and unfortunate.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Thursday said the party, while mourning the dead joined all well-meaning Nigerians in welcoming the survival of former head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari, and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, whose convoys were affected in the incident.

“We sincerely sympathize with General Buhari. Our hearts go out to him and all those affected in these wicked attacks,” Metuh stated.

The party reiterated its call for all Nigerians to unite against acts of terrorism irrespective of ethnic, political and religious affiliations.

“It has become clear that anybody could be a target.”

The ruling party meanwhile cautioned opposition leaders to be careful with their utterances regarding the incident saying 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 overall fight against insurgency in the country.
