President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan wishes to reassure Nigerians and foreigners resident in the country once again that his administration is taking every necessary action to end the spate of terrorist atrocities in the country.
Against the background of the recent upsurge in terrorist attacks, the latest of which occurred in Jalingo earlier today, President Jonathan urges Nigerians and foreigners living in the country not to be discouraged or deterred from going about their regular affairs by the persistence of the mindless bombings and gun attacks.
The President wholly condemns today’s assault on innocent citizens in Jalingo and reaffirms his Administration’s unwavering commitment to curbing terrorism in Nigeria and bringing the terrorists and their sponsors to justice.
Noting, however, that success in the war against terrorism will be more speedily achieved with greater support and assistance from affected communities, President Jonathan calls on all patriotic Nigerians, once again, to promptly report all suspicious persons to national security agencies.
He extends heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims of the bombings in Jalingo and wishes the injured speedy recovery.
