The National leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), General
Muhammadu Buhari (GMB) is horrified by the armed attack on the convoy of the
Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Ado Bayero on Friday, 18th January,
2013 and has expressed sympathy on the loss of lives therein.
The portent of this latest security challenge is: the Nigerian state is not just
under an ominous cloud of insecurity but all the Citizens (under the Nation
space) are also victims.
This is indeed one attack too many!
Let it be stated that insecurity of lives and property in any clime is a measure
of its lev el of development. This aptly explains why the Nation’s constitution,
in section 14, places security and welfare of the people on the Government.
As Citizens, we look forward to the time that this cloud of insecurity shall be
lifted and all Nigerians (of whatever religious persuasion and ethnic
extraction) shall be free to pursue happiness and living anywhere under the
Nation-space in tranquil setting.
God bless Nigeria.
Rotimi Fashakin (Engr)
National Publicity Secretary, CPC.
