APC Shifts House Of Assembly Primary By One Day Over Kano Bombing

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its House of Assembly primaries, scheduled for Monday, Dec. 1st across the nation, by one day as a mark of respect for those who were killed in Friday’s terrorist attack on a mosque in Kano, and in sympathy with those who were injured or affected one way or the other by the senseless attack.Residents look at a burnt motorcycles outside the central mosque in northern Nigeria’s largest city of Kano on November 29, 2014, a day after twin suicide blasts hit the mosque during weekly Friday prayers. At least 120 people were killed and 270 others wounded when two suicide bombers blew themselves up and gunmen opened fire during weekly prayers at the mosque, a week after the emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, of one of Nigeria’s top Islamic leaders called on northerners to defend themselves against Boko Haram Islamists that have been carrying out deadly attacks and seizure of territory in the northeast.In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the House of Assembly primaries will now hold on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd 2014”All the dates for other primaries remain unchanged,” it said.APC described the attack as a monumental national tragedy, saying the party cannot be oblivious to the plight of the victims of the absolutely condemnable and totally incomprehensible attack on defenseless citizens in such a hallowed place as a mosque.In an earlier statement, the party had condemned, in the strongest terms possible, the attack on the innocent worshipers and vowed that terrorism will never prevail no matter how long it takes.It also urged all citizens to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit of compassion and strength of character by providing succor and support to one another
