Goodluck Is Numb To The Fate And Plight Of Nigerians..APC Governors

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as insensitive and utterly hardhearted President Goodluck Jonathan’s decision to embark on a party rally in Kano barely 24 hours after 75 of his compatriots died in a bomb blast in Abuja, and as news broke of 129 schoolgirls who had been abducted by Boko Haram in Borno.
But in a swift reaction, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defended the president’s visit to Kano, stating that the objective of the terrorists is to create divisions in the country.
In a statement issued Wednersday by APC’s interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also renewed its call on the president to urgently convene a stakeholders' summit and pursue a non-partisan approach towards ending the insurgency, as it is now very obvious that the challenge posed by the insurgency is beyond the capacity of the government.
It said the president’s quick return to the hustings was reprehensible and had shown that his visit to the scene of the blast was merely to avoid the kind of flak he had received for refusing to visit Yobe, where 43 school children were massacred recently, rather than a genuine show of sympathy by a truly compassionate leader.
“The message that President Jonathan is sending to Nigerians is that keeping his plum job, at all cost, is more important to him than the security and welfare of the same people who voted him into office. Otherwise, the president would not have rushed back to his illegal campaign trail at a time he should be leading the nation in mourning the dead.
“A president who said his ambition is not worth the blood of anyone is now dancing gleefully on the graves of over 70 of his compatriots. What is so important about the illegal campaign stop in Kano on Tuesday that could not have waited for the smoke to clear from the scene of the deadly blast on Monday?
“Who will President Jonathan rule over when his countrymen and women are being daily mowed down under his watch?
“Without mincing words, President Jonathan erred badly by not showing enough sympathy for the victims of Monday's blast. More people died in the blast than from Kenya’s mall shooting last September, yet President Uhuru Kenyatta declared three days of national mourning, during which flags at public buildings flew at half mast and the people of Kenya prayed for the dead and the injured.
“In 2012, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari ordered the immediate postponement of all activities long planned to mark his 70th birthday, following the death in a helicopter crash of Gen. Azazi, Governor Yakowa and others in a helicopter crash in Bayelsa. Such is the stuff of a great leader.
“Even if President Jonathan does not want to mourn the death of the citizens, he should have at least kept a low profile for a few days to avoid a repeat of the disgusting show last February, when he led others to pop champagne corks and clink glasses at the wasteful centenary celebration right after at least 43 school children were massacred in Yobe.
“Nigerians are now asking: ‘Would the president have returned so quickly to the soapbox if any of his family members had suffered the fate that befell the victims of the blast, or if any of his appointees had been a victim?’
“How can a president whose failure of leadership has led to the untimely deaths of 1,500 mostly civilians in the hands of terrorists this year alone be so numb to the fate and plight of those who voted him into office?
“Or how else does one describe the action of a president who was in a celebratory mood in Kano on Tuesday, even when the surviving victims were still writhing in pain in various hospitals, the bodies of the victims were still lying cold in the morgue and the fate of dozens of abducted school girls remained unknown?” APC queried
The party urged the president, as a father, a leader and a human being, to take a moment of deep introspection, to reflect on his actions.
APC said it was imperative for the president to hearken to the voice of reason, because his aides and party officials, desperate not to be pushed off the gravy train, would rather blame everyone but the president and themselves for the woes that had befallen Nigeria under his watch.

  1. So this is what this madness is all about - the president's ambition? So APC instigates these dastard killings just to stop Mr. President because he said his ambition is not anybody's blood. The chickens are really coming home to roost. Buhari said it, that he will make Nigeria ungovernable for Jonathan and now he is doing exactly what he said. But let me tell Buhari and his cronnies in APC, you can ONLY make the whole North UNINHABITABLE. Very soon, your land(Northern Nigeria) shall go into extinction and desolation. Let your boys continue throwing the bombs of course, on Northern grounds and by the time power will come to APC, there will only be cows to rule. Irractional and brainless fools!
