‘Bombers fight­ing Nige­ri­ans, not Jonathan’

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Saawa Terzungwe

The Na­tional Co­or­di­na­tor, House2House Net­work for Good­luck 2015, Prince Chidi Ibe, yes­ter­day con­demned Mon­day’s bomb blast in Abuja, say­ing those be­hind the act are en­e­mies of Nige­ri­ans.

“Those be­hind these bomb­ings are not fight­ing Pres­i­dent Jonathan. Rather, they are fight­ing in­no­cent Nige­ri­ans who woke early Mon­day morn­ing to fend for their loved ones”, he said. Ibe who wept af­ter vis­it­ing vic­tims at the Asokoro and Maitama hos­pi­tals de­scribed the act as bar­baric and cow­ardly.

Ad­dress­ing sym­pa­thiz­ers at the scene of the in­ci­dent, he urged Nige­ri­ans to be se­cu­rity con­scious, and not just rely on govern­ment se­cu­rity agencies alone. He urged Nige­ri­ans not to lose hope in the Jonathan ad­min­is­tra­tion, adding that peace will soon re­turn to the coun­try. Ac­cord­ing to him, ter­ror­ist acts on in­no­cent Nige­ri­ans will not de­ter Jonathan from achiev­ing his trans­for­ma­tion agenda.
