A statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, the president said “the barbaric incident will not deter the Federal Government from its strong-willed determination to overcome those who do not mean well for this nation.”
He said the Federal Government will not be stampeded, for any reason whatsoever, into abandoning its unrelenting war against terrorists in the country.
President Jonathan reassured Nigerians and foreigners in the country that the Nigerian Government will continue to do all that is required to ensure the safety of lives and property, including continued collaboration with local and international partners and stakeholders to check the menace of terrorism.
The president commiserated with the victims of the explosions, their families and friends, and assured the Kano State government of the Federal Government’s continued support.
Over 60 passengers were killed while dozens got injured following an explosion that hit an inter-state luxurious car park in Kano State North West Nigeria on Monday.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as at press time.
