Abuja - The spat between the ruling party and the All Progressives Congress over the Abuja bomb blast continued on Thursday with the former accusing the opposition of supporting terror in the country.
On Wednesday, the APC accused the People’s Democratic (PDP) leader and President of the country, Goodluck Jonathan of over “heartlessness” after he reportedly embarked on a rally in Kano a day after the blast that killed more than 70 people outside Abuja.
The PDP has hit back in a statement saying calls by APC to “shut down” governance over the terrorist attack was yet another demonstration of APC’s support for terrorist agenda against the country.
“It is common knowledge that those behind the attacks seek to impose a reign of terror in our country, cow the President, dictate the tempo of government and ultimately shut down governance; a plot which the APC has betrayed its support for.
" The PDP-led Federal Government cannot in anyway be cowed or intimidated to abandon its mandate, the statement stressed that President Jonathan has remained committed to the welfare and security of all Nigerians. Indeed, Nigerians are no longer at loss as to the agenda of the APC.
The APC has again exposed its support for acts directly aimed at shutting down governance and imposing anarchy and reign of terror on our people. They had expected the President to be intimidated by acts of terrorism which have continued to be motivated by their utterances,” the ruling party stated.
APC has denied any involvement in the terrorist activities that have claimed more than 1 500 people this year.
