By Niyi Adeyi
Sequel to last Friday multiple bomb explosion that rocked Kano Central mosque, the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its House of Assembly primaries, scheduled for tomorrow, (Monday), across the nation, by one day.
In a statement issued in Lagos Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the postponement was as a mark of respect and sympathy with those who were injured or affected one way or the other by the senseless attack, while announcing that the primaries has now been slated for Tuesday, December 2, 2014.
”All the dates for other primaries remain unchanged,” it added.
The attack according to APC was a monumental “national tragedy”, stating that the party could not be oblivious to the plight of the victims of the absolutely condemnable and totally incomprehensible attack on defenseless citizens in such a hallowed place as a mosque.
It recalled its previous press statement, in which it condemned, in the strongest terms possible, the attack on the innocent worshipers and vowed that terrorism would never prevail no matter how long it takes.
The leading opposition also urged all citizens to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit of compassion and strength of character by providing succor and support to one another.
