The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned Friday night’s bomb attacks in Nyanya and Kuje satellite towns of Abuja, describing them as barbaric and cowardly.

The party made the condemnation via a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja.

It stated that the party was shocked by the news of the gruesome attacks in the two towns which claimed the lives of several citizens.

The party noted that the senseless and wicked attacks came barely 24 hours after the nation celebrated its 55th independence anniversary.

“It is time when the citizens and their leaders should renew their faith in the oneness and progress of the nation.

“The PDP deeply grieves for the continued acts of terrorism, especially in the northern parts of the country, where insurgents are still slaughtering innocent Nigerians almost every day.

“Indeed, this is not the way to go. We can no longer afford to continue to have our people cut down and slaughtered.

“We all, as Nigerians, must therefore close ranks and present a common front in support of our government and security forces in the fight against terrorism in our country.”

The party reaffirmed its support for the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration aimed at ending the insurgency.

“We reiterate our support for the president’s policies aimed at checking criminal activities in our nation.”

The PDP, however, urged the government to pay more attention to issues of intelligence gathering, as well as social and direct military actions against terrorism.

The party also called on Nigerians to remain vigilant, while supporting and praying for the security forces as they strove to ensure the safety of the citizenry.

“We also commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives in the attacks and prayed God to give them the fortitude to bear the loss.” (NAN)
