President of Nigeria Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has condemned Sunday’s suicide bomb attack on a Kaduna Catholic Church.
The President who was extremely saddened by the explosion, described it as “barbaric, cruel and uncalled for.”
According to President Jonathan, the apparent objective of the criminal and unpatriotic elements and forces behind the attack is to set back the progress the Administration has made in the fight against terrorism in the country and throw the country into chaos.
“It is obvious that these people do not mean well for Nigeria and its unity and development,” he said.
The President however, ensured Nigerians that his administration’s war against terrorism would become more unrelenting as the nation would never give in to the forces of terror and retardation.
“Our efforts to deal with all acts of terror and violence would only be redoubled even as the security agencies continue to receive all the support they need from government to reverse this unfortunate and unacceptable trend that threatens the peace and stability of our nation,” President Jonathan said.
The President while commiserating with the Catholic Church, family and friends of the victims of the bombing, assured them that government’s resolve to deal with the threat of terrorism remains strong and unbridled.
