The Deputy President of Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has condemned in strong terms the Easter suicide bomb attack leading to loss of lives and many other casualties in Kaduna.
Senator Ekweremadu who condemned the act of terrorism as “mean, distasteful, and out of sync with the nation’s cultural and religious values”, said the incessant bomb attacks were in discordance with the dreams of the founding fathers of Nigeria.
“Our fathers will surely turn in their graves over these bombings and senseless waste of highly precious human lives and property by enemies of the nation, but we as a people must unite in courage and solidarity to fight those behind these acts even as we must never accept them as normal because it is not in our character, cultural or religious values to waste lives”, Ekweremadu said.
He called on religious, traditional, and political leaders to prevail on their subjects to embrace peace, reconciliation, and unity, while calling on the nation to be vigilant and expose all suspicious activities by anybody whether highly or lowly placed.
The Deputy President of Senate while expressing hope that the nation would overcome the present challenges in no distant future, condoled with the victims of the Kaduna bomb blast, praying God to grant the deceased a peaceful repose and the injured a quick recovery.
“It is also my earnest prayer that the power of resurrection of this Easter washes away the sorrows of all those who have lost their beloved ones and supply them with the inner strength to bear the irreparable losses”, he added.
