The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has condemned yesterday’s explosions that killed over 20 people in Kano.

A statement signed by Anthony N Z Sani, National Publicity Secretary reads: “ACF is shocked and sad over the reports of four bomb explosions which killed and wounded many people yesterday in Kano.

“These kinds of killing of innocent people have no place in all religions and in decent societies; and amounts to desecration of the month of Ramadan.

“They should, therefore, be condemned by all those who cherish core values of inhumanity like freedom, justice and common decency.

“It is still the considered opinion of ACF that violence can never resolve any perceived grievances, besides inflicting pains and self-immolation and destruction of innocent people.

“Only constructive engagement can address concerns positively. Many examples abound across the world that support this contention.

“That is why ACF would not be tired of asking perpetrators of violence to avail themselves to the offer of dialogue by the government for the good of all.

“This is because there is no alternative to peaceful coexistence needed for the socio economic development of this large country that holds a lot of promises to generations to come. Let us give peace a chance.

“Our heart goes to the government and people of Kano State, is with those who lost their loved ones, is with those who have been wounded and is with those who lost properties.

“May God provide them with the fortitude to endure the irreparable losses and the means for replacement of the properties many folds.”
