Atiku Condemns Bomb Attacks In Borno, Warns FG Not To Turn Northeast To Theater Of Terrorism

The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar has condemned the bomb attack in Borno State, warning the Federal Government not to turn the North East to the theater of terrorism.

Atiku issued this warning in a post on his verified Facebook page on Sunday.

The former vice-Presidentasked the present administration to live up to expectation, accusing the government of lacklustre posture in holding firmly to the frontline in the gains made by security operatives.

According to him, it is a sad development that the “ugly incidents of terrorism are resurfacing and, indeed, metastasising in the North-East.”

He said, “The reported attack by suicide bombers at a wedding reception, funeral procession, and a hospital on Saturday stands condemned.

“It is unfortunate that much of the pushback that had been achieved against the Boko Haram terror sect are being cancelled, owing mainly to the government’s lacklustre posture to hold firmly on the frontline.

“It is thus important to call on the federal authorities to wake up to their responsibility and to make sure that the North-East does not slide back into a theatre of terrorism and extreme violence.”

Atiku also expressed condolences to the families of victims of these attacks, saying, “it is my prayer that God grants a peaceful repose to the souls of the departed.”
