President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday vowed that no matter how long it takes, his administration would ensure that all those responsible for the death of many students in a bomb attack on Government Science Secondary School, Potiskum, Yobe State, are brought to justice.
The president also promised the same fate to all those behind continuing acts of terrorism across the country.
This was contained in a statement made available to journalists by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Dr. Reuben Abati.
Jonathan extended his heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Yobe State on the death of the students even as he sympathized with all parents who lost their children in the attack.
The statement read in part, “The President condemns the dastardly murder of the students on their school’s assembly ground as they prepared to begin another week of study in pursuit of a better life for themselves and their families.
“He assures the grieving parents and people of Yobe state that no matter how long it takes, the Federal Government will ensure that all those responsible for the senseless murder of so many promising youngsters and the continuing acts of terrorism across the country are brought to justice and made to pay for their atrocious crimes.
“The President similarly assures all Nigerians that in spite of seeming setbacks, his Administration remains fully committed to winning the war against insurgency and terrorism.
“Nigeria, President Jonathan affirms, will ultimately overcome the current security challenges imposed by domestic terrorists and their foreign allies, with the dedication of its Armed Forces and national security agencies, as well as the continued support and cooperation of all patriotic citizens”.
