The Vice-Chairman, Senate Committee on Public Service and Establishments, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan and the security agencies to find a way of addressing the problem of terrorism in the country.
Babafemi Ojudu said that Nigerians were tired of profuse condolence messages from the President each time bombs went off in the country.
According to him, Nigerians desire a definitive action and not profuse condolences that have overtime outlived their meaning.
Reacting to the intensified bombings across the North, the senator said, “This is not the time for the President and the National Security Adviser, Gen. Owoye Azazi, to be second-guessing each other. They pull their resources together and put an end to the insecurity, which roots they have always claimed to know.
“The latest trend to the bombings is a dangerous dimension that has to be nipped in the bud immediately. A situation where the sect has to take their grievances to schools and media houses is unacceptable.”
Ojudu commiserated with the families of the victims of the Bayero University, Kano bombing in which two professors and 11 others died.
He said he believed that Jonathan should do everything within his power, while drawing suggestions from all stakeholders, to ensure that his reign is not remembered for needless loss of Nigerian lives.
The senator condoled with the management of ThisDay on the bombing of their offices in Kaduna and Abuja
