The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) candidate representing Bauchi federal constituency, Hon. Aminu Mohammed Danmaliki Bauchi, has blamed the incessant bomb explosions in the country on President Goodluck Jonathan.
Also, the PDP Governorship candidate in Bauchi state, Mohammad Auwal Jatau, has donated a sum of N30 million to victims of the recent bomb blast in Bauchi.
Speaking to journalists on Saturday after he visited Central Market, Bauchi, scene of Monday’s explosion which claimed 17 lives with scores of injured persons, Danmaliki Bauchi blamed Jonathan for not doing enough to stop the spate of the bombings by insurgents in the country.
He expressed dismay over the type of leadership in the country, saying the President has failed woefully in his leadership responsibilities, which do not provide security of lives and properties. He lambasted the Presidency over the level of insecurity in the country, urging the Federal Government to halt the attacks.
The Reps candidate said the incident was a dangerous development, which should not be taken lightly by any responsible Nigerian leaders. He said the attack has added a dangerous dimension to a bad security situation in the country.
According to him, “such a situation has only deepened the anxiety of ordinary citizens that nobody is safe in this country.”
He noted that while it is the duty of all leaders regardless of political affiliations to support the anti-terrorism efforts in the country, it would not be wise to keep quiet when events are taking disturbing dimension.
Aminu urged the President to stop the killings and to devote more time and energy to the war on terrorism.
Meanwhile, Jatau has made a donation of the sum of N30 million to victims of last Monday’s bomb blast in Bauchi.
“The sum of N30 million is hereby donated by me to help persons that are seriously affected by last Monday central market blast”, Jatau said while sympathising with victims yesterday at the incident site in Bauchi.
