Seventy –two hours after the bomb blast that claimed 10 lives and with over hundred people injured, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tuesday commiserated with the victims of the St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Kaduna.
In a letter signed by the National Secretary of the party, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, to the governor of Kaduna state, Patrick Yakowa, PDP said: “Without doubt, the incident is very condemnable considering especially the fact that innocent lives were lost while several people were seriously injured.
“It is particularly distressing to note the trend of security breaches perpetrated by some people who obviously do not wish out nation well. I must let you know that the Peoples Democratic Party shares in the grief provoked by this disaster of monumental proportions.”
The PDP secretary enjoined the governor and the people of the state not to be deterred by the spate of these ugly occurrences which shall soon be part of history.
Oyinlola said: “The National Working Committee of the PDP sympathises with the government and entire people of Kaduna State on this most regrettable occurrence and hereby once again appeals for caution and dialogue as a means to ending this culture of violence. We urge security agencies to continue to take proactive measures to contain threats to peace.”
Lamenting the rapid incidence of the bombing in the state and other parts of the country, PDP said: “It is indeed a regrettable occurrence considering especially the motive of those who committed the dastardly act that recorded loss of precious lives. I must let you know that the Peoples Democratic Party shares in the grief provoked by this disaster.
“While once again sympathising with your Excellency on this irreparable loss, please accept the heartfelt sympathies of the National Chairman and other members of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party on this most regrettable occurrence. May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace.”
