Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Kwara State, Senator Gbemisola Ruqayat Saraki (GRS) has condemed the terror attack on a bus station at Nyanya Abuja and other parts of the country describing it as an act against humanity, just as she condoles with families of the early morning blast victims and prayed that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the loss.
Saraki in a release by her Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Sola Shittu, urged government and the entire Nigerians to unite and fight what she described as “our common enemy”.
According to her, “insecurity in any part of this country, whether in Maiduguri, Sokoto or Yobe is insecurity for everyone of us. What happened this morning could happen to anyone of us anywhere in Nigeria. My heart bleeds for the victims of today’s blast. I was crying when I saw the pictures of the victims on the social media.
These are hard working Nigerians who woke up early in search of their daily bread and that is why I am calling on everybody irrespective of their party or religious affiliation to unite with this government and fight this common enemy”.
She appealed to all Nigerians to be more security conscious in their various places of abode and also cooperate with security agencies in the fight against insurgence and acts of terrorism in the country.
Senator Gbemi Saraki also called on the federal government to intensify its efforts in the fight against terrorism saying until peace is restored in every part of the country government should not rest on its oars.
While acknowledging that government has invested a lot in the security of the country, she however said more still need to be done because of the vast nature of the country and her porous borders.

  1. You do not want comment hence there is no required marks on website and comment, and you are going to publish names? With the name published, will the email address be a problem? This is a poorly designed instruction. I am thinking that the comments are very important to be required by those who want to react to what is going on in Nigeria.
    However, my comment is that Nigerians should stop listening to foreign advisers who are there to liquidate Nigeria. Nigerians should stop taking the advice of collaborators with Nigeria’s enemies on the so called human rights concept. Nigeria should face and deal severely with all enemies, local or internal, and foreign, with whatever it has at its disposal until victory is achieved by Nigeria. Brutal murderers have lost their human rights to live. Many of the so called human rights campaigners are deceptive and are enemies of the progress Nigeria earnestly need. Boko or gboko haram constitute darkness in Nigeria. Let Nigerians shine light on Nigeria by getting Gboko or Boko Haram dispelled from Nigerian Soil. If Nigeria cannot terminate a gang of rebels and murderers, no matter how well equipped they are, it cannot lay claim to be a leader on the African continent. Nigeria, kill instead of being killed, and never be a captive in the den of saboteurs and political cheat who are afraid of today and tomorrow Nigeria. Nigeria claim your destiny as the leader of Africa, the home of first human kind on this planet.
