NIGERIANS IN SPAIN CONDEMN ABUJA BOMBING
A group, the Goodluck-Sambo 2011 Project/Spain has condemned the October 1, 2010 bomb explosions in Abuja saying it is a negative signal in the development effort of the government. The Chairman of the group, Chief Paul Chukwudi Umeghalu condemned the deadly terrorist attack on Abuja, during celebrations marking the 50th independence anniversary.
While explaining that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is criminal and unjustifiable, the group urged President Goodluck Jonathan not to be deterred by the bombers, and continue in his work of reshaping Nigeria.
The group's chairman in a telephone chat urged the government to bring the perpetrators to book and compensate the families of those who died in the attack.
The group also expressed support for the joint ticket of President Jonathan and Vice President Namadi Sambo for the presidency of Nigeria in 2011. The Goodluck-Sambo 2011 Project/Spain, said the declaration by the president and his vice is a positive stride towards achieving a greater Nigeria especially as both have demonstrated great leadership qualities and good governance since assuming office.
He said: 'There is no doubt that President Jonathan when elected into office will not only continue in the good works which he has started in this last four months, but will also unfold more ingenious plans that will catapult Nigeria to its rightful position among the committee of Nations.'
