Terrorism Will Never Prevail – Gen. Buhari

Find a fresh press statement from APC’s presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on terrorism below;
I condemn, unreservedly and with every strength in me, the
recent terrorist attacks in Kano and Jos, the two historic cities that are
known for their rich cultural and religious heritage.
Once again, those who seek to influence our way of life,
modify our faith and our most sacred core values, have struck, leaving in their
wake lives brutally cut short, limbs badly broken and dreams forced to fade
away.

But these people, whose actions are not sanctioned by any
religion and who subscribe to no known decent values, will not succeed. Our
people are resilient and strong, and our nation is capable, based on our rich
human and material resources, of successfully tackling these nihilists.
We will together see the end of them and their reign of
terror. They have failed because Nigeria will remain strong and united in the
face of what has now become an almost daily infliction of terror on a
defenceless people. Women, children and the aged are not spared by these
barbaric purveyors of horror, intimidation and panic. No religion condoles the
killings of such vulnerable and innocent people, hence we are sure these
terrorists profess to none of the world’s great religions, much as they seek to
mask their actions with the cloak of religion.
Because their ideals are primordial and whatever cause they
claim to be pushing is not just, they will not succeed. In spite of their
terror, our respective faith and how we practice them will flourish and expand.
Our reputation as a people of deep faith and peaceful religious coexistence
will shine through, it will not diminish, it will not be forfeited.
I commiserate with the victims and their family members.
While praying that Allah will grant repose to the souls of the departed and
comfort those who lost loved ones, I urge all of us to demonstrate our
time-tested compassion by providing support and succour to those affected one
way or other in their hour of need.
To my long-suffering fellow citizens who have borne the
brunt of these almost daily senseless attacks, I say help is on the way. Terror
must and will be defeated. All it requires is the political will, uncommon
courage and unrelenting determination, and victory will be ours.
Gen. Muhammadu Buhari
APC Presidential Candidate
