PDP Blames APC For Abuja Explosion

The Peoples Democratic Party has condemned as barbaric,
monstrous and extremely wicked, the bomb attack which claimed the lives of
innocent Nigerians in Nyanya, a suburb of Abuja on Monday.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a
statement on Monday said the party was shocked and has remained grief- stricken
since it received the news of the gruesome attack and killing of Nigerians
pursuing their legitimate endeavours.
“The PDP weeps. We are indeed grief-stricken. Our hearts go
out to the bereaved, especially those who have been orphaned and widowed and
those now deprived of their bread winners by this evil act. We share in their
pain, their anguish and their loss and pray that those behind their grief must
not escape justice,” the party said.

Stating that the attacks cannot be justified under any
guise, the PDP maintained that they are politically motivated and can be traced
to the utterances and comments of desperate persons who seek to undermine and
discredit the present administration and make the nation ungovernable for
President Goodluck Jonathan by instituting a reign of terror against the
“We stand by our earlier statements that these attacks on
our people are politically motivated by unpatriotic persons, especially those
in the APC, who have been making utterances and comments, promoting violence
and blood-letting as a means of achieving political control.
“Nigerians are also aware of utterances by certain APC
governors which have been aimed at undermining our security forces and
emboldening insurgents against the people.
“Those who have been promoting violence through their
utterances can now see the monster they have created. They can now see the end
product of their comments; a country flowing daily with the blood of the
“The question is; how do they feel when they see the mangled
and blood-soaked bodies of their victims? How do they feel when they hear the
voices of the dying and the injured?
“Of course they feel nothing. Their hearts have been
hardened and they are embittered by the fact that they have been rejected by
the people. They are bitter because the people have chosen to rally round the
government they love and voted for; but must they chose the path of violence
and bloodletting as a response to the wishes and aspiration of the people?” the
statement queried.
Urging all well meaning Nigerians to stand up and join
President Goodluck Jonathan in his untiring efforts to check terrorism in the
country, the PDP cautioned those fueling the attacks to retrace their steps,
rid themselves of bitterness and desperation and seek forgiveness from God.

The party, in solidarity with the people also shelved all
official engagements while praying God to grant the bereaved the fortitude to
bear the loss.
