Nigerians have reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s swift response to the “horrific attacks targeting Christians in Sri Lanka”.
The president through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu condemned attacks on several hotels and churches in Sri Lanka on Sunday — whist urging Sri Lanka to do all it could to ensure the criminals involved face the law.
Statement reads thus:
President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed shock and sadness over the terrible attacks on several churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on the holy day of Easter.
On behalf of the government and people of Nigeria, the President extends deepest condolences to the families of those killed in the attacks and wishes speedy recovery to the injured.
Noting that Nigeria stands with the people of Sri Lankan at this terrible moment, President Buhari urges the authorities not to spare the wicked elements behind these mischievous attacks.
However Some Nigerians found it wrong that the president wastes no time in condemning with other countries when they face tragedy but takes weeks and sometimes months before he responds to the ones occurring daily in Nigeria.
