In­sur­gency: APC hails sus­pen­sion of PDP rally in Adamawa

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Balarabe Alka­s­sim

The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has hailed the sus­pen­sion of the PDP rally sched­uled to hold in Yola, Adamawa State on Tues­day.

The party in a state­ment is­sued in La­gos on Mon­day by its in­terim na­tional pub­lic­ity sec­re­tary, Al­haji Lai Mo­hammed, said the sus­pen­sion is the right de­ci­sion to take un­der the present cir­cum­stance.

It said the sus­pen­sion of the rally has in­di­cated that Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan is be­gin­ning to lis­ten to the voices of his com­pa­tri­ots on im­por­tant na­tional is­sues.

“As we said in a state­ment we is­sued on April 24th, it smacks of in­sen­si­tiv­ity, in­hu­man­ity and in­de­cency for our Pres­i­dent and other lead­ers to be en­gaged in any cel­e­bra­tory ven­ture when we do not yet know the fate of the school girls who were ab­ducted from their school and taken to an un­known des­ti­na­tion.

“We also said the Pres­i­dent should not re­peat the same mis­take he made by fly­ing to Kano to dance at a po­lit­i­cal rally even as the smoke was yet to clear from the scene of the Nyanya bus park bomb­ing. We are de­lighted that good sense has pre­vailed this time,’’ APC said.

The party said while the Pres­i­dent does not have to shut down the govern­ment, he must con­tinue to shun all cel­e­bra­tory pub­lic out­ings un­til all the school girls have been safely re­united with their fam­i­lies.
