APC condemns blasts in Kano


LAGOS – The All Progressives Congress (APC), on Saturday condemned bomb attacks on worshippers at Kano Central Mosque on Friday, saying terrorism will never prevail.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said the attacks had again confirmed what APC had always believed: “terrorism is an attack on our nationhood and the way we live.
“Every attack against innocent people, including women and children, or those who are performing or pursuing their commitment to their God or faith, is a cowardly and senseless victimisation and exploitation of vulnerability.
“The fabric and character of our people, whether in Kano or anywhere else across the nation, are stronger than this attack on our collective humanity.
“Our resolve as a nation will always overcome evil and any assault on how we live and practice our respective faith,’’ the statement said.
The party, in the statement, commiserated with the people of Kano and all the affected families.
“We pray that God will grant repose to the souls of those who were killed in the blast, while also wishing all those who were injured in the attack a speedy recovery’’, it added.
It urged people of Kano to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit of compassion and strength of character by providing succour and support to one another.
The statement commended the security agencies for their continued sacrifice in confronting insurgency, despite working in very difficult circumstances.
“We want you to know that your work and sacrifices secure our nation and, for that, you will never be forgotten. Together we will get through this.’’
According to the statement, the party also resolved to work with the Federal Government to fight terrorism, to better secure the nation. (NAN)
