Pres. Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the suicide bombing that rocked the St. Finbarr’s Catholic Church in Rayfield Jos today (Sunday March 11 2012). He also stressed the fact that the country is winning the war against terrorism in a statement signed by his special adviser on media, Reuben Abati PhD.
The president commiserated with the victims of the attack, members of the parish as well as the people and government of Plateau State.
“I convey my sincerest and heartfelt commiserations to the families of the victims of the bomb attack earlier today on the St. Finbarr’s Catholic Jos, as well as the entire congregation of the Church and the government and people of Plateau State”.
President Jonathan reiterated his Administration’s total condemnation of  this and all other terrorist attacks on innocent Nigerians and reassures all Nigerians and friends of the country that the Federal Government is doing everything possible to end the spate of mindless attacks and killings in parts of the country.
He called on citizens of the country not to remain remorseful despite the rising spate of the attacks and also claimed his government is winning the war against terrorism in the country.
“I urged Nigerians not to despair or be discouraged by the persistence of the attacks in spite of government’s efforts to deal decisively with the menace of terrorism within the country’s borders because despite seeming appearances to the contrary, government is indeed winning the war against the terrorists and will continue to progressively destroy their ability to unleash murderous attacks on peaceful, law-abiding Nigerians”.
“In this regard, it is worthy of note that in recent  weeks national  security agencies have identified and arrested more of these agents of darkness than at any other time. Their hideouts and modus oper
andi are also being consistently exposed” he said
President Jonathan further assured all Nigerians that Government will continue to build on these recent successes by the security agencies until terrorism is totally defeated in the country with the support, cooperation and solidarity of all patriotic citizens.
The President made an appeal to Nigerians not to take laws into their hands by embarking on reprisal attacks but to remain patient and resolute in their belief that the war has been won.
“I therefore call on the populace to remain patient and refrain from taking matters into their own hands through actions such as reprisal attacks, as government continues to take the battle to the merchants of terror and close in on their locations, funding and sponsors”.
