The national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has joined her wife to criticize those condemning President Muhammadu Buhari and the service chiefs over insecurity in Nigeria.
He threw his support behind the government two days after his wife Senator Remi Tinubu mocked Senator Smart Adeyemi for criticising uncurbed killings.
Read Mr Tinubu’s full statement as shared on Twitter below:
Like all decent Nigerians, I am angered and troubled by the terror and cruelty being visited upon the people of Borno, Yobe, Benue, Niger, Imo and other parts of the nation.
These attacks have caused many to disparage our military and security forces. This we must not do. Valiant men and women serve in our security forces, risking their lives to protect us.
We stand with them. Government also must continue to encourage the security forces to do their utmost to subdue this threat. The lives of innocent Nigerians and the future progress of the nation may lie in the balance.
As a people, we must never surrender to the fearful temptation to blame one another. Regardless of region or religion, we must unite against a common foe. Discord will only invite defeat.
The enemy’s attacks seem to focus on our schools, religious institutions and security forces. They seek to extinguish the light of knowledge and hope by shrouding us in the darkness of fear and brutal ordeal.
We must not tremble. They will be vanquished. In the end, tolerance, justice and compassion shall win the day.
