President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan condemned yesterday’s bomb attack which claimed the lives of innocent worshipers at the Central Mosque in Kano. “He extends heartfelt condolences to the people and Government of Kano State over the heinous attack,” Presidential Spokesman Reuben Abati said late yesterday.

According to Abati in a statement in Abuja, Jonathan “commiserates with all the families who lost their loved ones. The President calls on relief agencies and medical personnel to deploy every possible effort to assist the injured, and the general public to heed the call for the donation of blood by the hospitals where the injured are being treated.

“The President has further directed the security agencies to launch a full-scale investigation and to leave no stone unturned until all agents of terror undermining the right of every citizen to life and dignity, are tracked down and brought to justice.

“The President reaffirms that terrorism in all its forms and manifestation is a despicable and unjustifiable threat to our society. He reiterates the determination of the government to continue to take every step to put an end to the reprehensible acts of all groups and persons involved in acts of terrorism.

“President Jonathan calls on all Nigerians not to despair in this moment of great trial in our nation’s history but to remain united to confront the common enemy.

“The President is confident that no terrorist act against fellow citizens will destroy the Nigerian spirit to remain positive, resolute and united in the quest for lasting peace and security in the country.

“He appeals to all Nigerians to remain vigilant and cooperate actively with our security agencies to win the on-going war against terror.”
