And now we are playing blame games. In
statement signed this afternoon by PDP National
Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the party
condemned today’s Nyanya bombing describing it
as barbaric and extremely wicked and maintaining
that it was politically motivated. They called APC
out! So wait, politicians are playing games with
people’s lives? Read statement below…
“The PDP weeps. We are indeed grief-stricken. Our
hearts go out to the bereaved, especially those who
have been orphaned and widowed and those now
deprived of their bread winners by this evil act. We
share in their pain, their anguish and their loss and
pray that those behind their grief must not escape
justice,” the party said.
“We stand by our earlier statements that these
attacks on our people are politically motivated by
unpatriotic persons, especially those in the APC,
who have been making utterances and comments,
promoting violence and blood-letting as a means of
achieving political control.” Continue…
“Nigerians are also aware of utterances by
certain APC governors which have been aimed at
undermining our security forces and emboldening
insurgents against the people.
“Those who have been promoting violence
through their utterances can now see the monster
they have created. They can now see the end
product of their comments; a country flowing daily
with the blood of the innocent.
The question is; how do they feel when they see
the mangled and blood-soaked bodies of their
victims? How do they feel when they hear the
voices of the dying and the injured?
“Of course they feel nothing. Their hearts have
been hardened and they are embittered by the fact
that they have been rejected by the people. They
are bitter because the people have chosen to rally
round the government they love and voted for; but
must they chose the path of violence and
bloodletting as a response to the wishes and
aspiration of the people.
Urging all well meaning Nigerians to stand up
and join President Goodluck Jonathan in his
untiring efforts to check terrorism in the country,
the PDP caution those fueling the attacks to retrace
their steps, rid themselves of bitterness and
desperation and seek forgiveness from God.
The party, in solidarity with the people also
shelved all official engagements while praying God
to grant the bereaved the fortitude to bear the loss.
