President Jonathan Condemns Al-Shabab Attack On Kenyan University
SAN FRANCISCO, April 02, (THEWILL) – President Goodluck Jonathan Thursday extended his heartfelt condolences to the Government and people of Kenya and to the families of those who died in the gruesome terrorist attack on the Garissa University College in Kenya.
President Jonathan, in a statement signed by his spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, utterly condemned the deliberate targeting of innocent persons, schools and other soft targets by terrorists, saying such atrocious, despicable and barbaric acts of violence ought to have no place in any civilised society.
The President assured President Uhuru Kenyatta and the brotherly people of Kenya that Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them as they come to grips once again with the aftermath of another heinous terrorist attack on their country.
Nigeria, President Jonathan affirmed, will continue to work with Kenya, other African countries and the international community to rid the world of all terrorist groups.
The President said he believes that the attack on the Kenyan University and other similar atrocities across the world must strengthen and solidify the resolve of the global community to take more urgent and co-ordinated actions to speedily defeat the agents of global terror.
