FG Lacks Capacity To Confront Terrorism In Nigeria – ACN


The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has called for restraint to avoid further bloodletting in the country, urging leaders of thought to urgently come together to seek peace and unity in order to prevent anarchy following the bombing of the Kano motor park.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Muhammed, the party said: “As things stand, the federal government possesses neither the vision nor the capacity to confront the worsening acts of terrorism in the country.”

It added: “As we commiserate with the victims of this senseless act and their families, we will like to say that this is the time for sober reflection and restraint; and that all leaders of thought must urgently come together, formally or informally, to avert a national calamity that will not spare anyone, whether or not they are members of the Boko Haram sect.”

The party said all religious, ethnic and political leaders must start by preaching restraint in their domains, to prevent the impending conflagration being planned by the fundamentalists.

ACN blamed Jonathan for the escalation of terror in the country, which it attributed to his comments during his visit to Borno and Yobe States.


  1. I don’t understand this people self. You always talk as if you are the one sponsoring this them, in order to challenge the FG. Are you inhuman don’t you feel the pain. May until any of you become a victim. Please stop this sentiment find solution. Is part name your family or your village name. Na waa for these so called leader in this country.

  2. Some parties need to learn how opposition party operate in order to be useful to the nation. It is laughable how the so called opposition parties in our country behave. In developed nations, opposition parties make constructive criticism and offer suggestions for the good of the nation. In our country their utterances show they ve not recovered from the pains of loosing the election. There is absolutely nothing useful in their utterances. They should know that all these foolish utterances will only help to tear the nation apart. Our democracy is United State’s model. The Republican Party never make stupid comment. Instead they proffer solution to any problem confronting their nation. That’s how opposition party operates. In Nigeria they talk like senseless people becasue they did not win the election.Many of them making these comments have been in govt before and achieved nothing. ACN and allied parties should offer useful suggestions in respect to our present troubles and stop crying over their election loss.
