The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has condemned the twin blasts that rocked Kaduna state earlier yesterday, describing it as “terror upon the country”.

Tinubu also condemned the second attack which was targeted at former head of state and APC leader, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

In a statement issued by his media office, Tinubu expressed his feelings and commiserated with the families of those that lost their lives and in blast.

“The multiple bomb attacks on General Buhari, one of the national leaders of the APC, and innocent Nigerians, confirms that our county is in the grip of terror. Sadly, we are in the hands of a bungling, buck-passing and blackmailing presidency,” he said.

“I condemn, in the strongest terms, the attack on General Buhari and his convoy; and the innocent Nigerians that suffered untimely deaths. I thank God that Gen. Buhari’s life was spared for greater service to the fatherland.

“Under an increasingly incompetent and incoherent PDP-led government, Nigeria is slipping into a low intensity war. We are all marked people, under a government that prefers to label and attack opposition rather than apply itself to providing security and good governance”.

“The multiple attacks are a bad omen that signposts a future filled with danger and uncertainty. Unfortunately, Nigeria is saddled with a leadership totally intolerant of ideas, suggestions and advice that do not emanate from them.

“Instead of reaching out and paying attention to our suggestions, they have turned the guns on us and are manipulating and doctoring reports and stories to label us. It is a label that is false; it is a label that will not stick. We are patriots and stand united against anyone who wants to do this great country harm”, Tinubu further stated.
